X-Position: Top X-Moments of 2010

CBR: Right before the end of 2010, CBR asked you - their faithful X-POSITION readers - to send them your favorite moments of the year gone by from the various X-books. Here they are!

1. "X-Men: Curse Of The Mutants -- Storm and Gambit" One-Shot

2. Angel and Psylocke Get Back Together

Reunited and it feels so good! Most comic readers are romantics at heart, and the X-fans are no exception. It seems everyone was thrilled to see this classic couple back together, and they truly appreciated the reason behind this reunion as well...

I only have one favorite moment of 2010: Angel and Psylocke getting back together. I'm glad they didn't get back together just for the sake of it -- there's substance to it. I love how Remender handles the relationship and how it acts as the heart of the book. Plus they've always been my favorite X-couple.

When Betty explains to Warren why she is there on the team -- it's pure romance meshed with drama and reality. And it's all complemented by Jerome Opena's wonderful art and damn fine dialogue by the awesome Rick Remender!

Psylocke and Archangel getting back just feels so right. The X-Universe was lacking some good old romance...

3. The Death of Nightcrawler

4. "Uncanny X-Force" and The Final Horsemen

In September, the covert X-Force team formed by Cyclops and Wolverine was disbanded, but less than thirty days later...long live X-Force! That is to say, long live the new Uncanny X-Force, as written by Rick Remender. The formation of this team (headed by Angel and Wolverine) coupled with the creation of new Final Horsemen drove fans wild with excitement!

"Uncanny X-Force" definitely comes first. The Final Horsemen are the best Horsemen lineup to date! A Geisha who vomits bugs? Just beautiful!
-- Chace

Two issues in and this has already outshined everything else that was released this year. Wolverine, Archangel, Psylocke, Deadpool and Fantomex chasing Apocalypse as a child? What's not to like?
-- Ben

5. Rahne's Long-Awaited Return to "X-Factor"

6. Inferno Babies!

7. Emma Frost's Tanline

8. "Pixie Strikes Back"

9. Doop's Investigation

10. Cyclops Has Breakfest

11. Dani Vs. Hope

12. The Death of Nathan Cable Summers

Runner-ups: "X-Women", Dani Moonster Turns Into a Valkyrie and "Second Coming" and its Ensuing Revelations

Some of the things that entered this list are quite stupid... I mean, Pixie Strikes Back, really (the only remarkable thing there was the Emma/Betsy/Kurt team-up)? Emma's TANLINE??

But I liked both Psylocke-related items in the list. The new Horsemen are indeed the best incarnation of the Horsemen, and I hope they won't die or be depowered so soon. And as much as I despise Warren, Remender made his romance with Betsy actually work, they look like a convincing couple.
