Top Five Acolytes

These are the top five coolest Acolytes of Magneto!

5. Exodus

Exodus probably could have been a lot cooler, but he was a bit too much of a "plot device" character. Sort of a place-filler for when Magneto was gone.

What's he even up to nowadays?

Does he still have his powers?

4. Scanner

I liked Scanner, because she showed us how a good mutant (in this case, Cyclops) could help turn around people's perspectives. She was hardcore anti-X-Men until Cyclops helped lead her and some other Acolytes to safety after their headquarters was destroyed by Holocaust.

At the end, though, she turned on him when he turned her over to the authorities. She doesn't have powers anymore after House of M.

3. Fabian Cortez

Cortez is this high mainly just because of the sheer importance of him. He's been killed off, like, three times. But he keeps coming back, like the proverbial bad penny.

So even though he is a bit light on personality, his sheer importance gets him this high.

2. Amelia Voght

She dated Professor X! How cool is that?

Pretty cool, I say.

Sadly, that's about it for her, in terms of personality. But that's a big deal!!

1. Joanna Cargill

She was part of the Alliance of Evil.

She was a Femizon.

She was an Acolyte.

Due to some Jean Grey re-programming, she was even an X-MAN!!!

Plus, she has an almost twin in Flint, the superstrong black woman from Stormwatch.

Agree? Disagree? Let me know of your top five!

Yes, I know it's the storyline where Magneto leaches the metal out of Wolverine's bones (and we later learned gave birth to Onslaught)...

but Colossus deciding that Magneto was right after his sister dies is a pretty damn powerful moment.

Honestly, I don't know who any of these are. Which is annoying.
