The Revolution’s very first poll dealt with the X-titles and which one is the best read at this moment. And the followers of The Revolution have spoken loudly, and they say that Uncanny X-Men is the X-title that is currently the best read. We got a total of 204 votes.
1st Place: Uncanny X-Men with 84 votes (41%)
2nd Place: Astonishing X-Men with 72 votes (35%)
3rd Place: X-Factor with 32 votes (15%)
4th Place: X-Men with 14 votes (6%)
5th Place: New X-Men with 2 votes.
Personally, I voted for X-Factor. That is now big surprise to anyone who is a regular here at The Revolution. However, I am a realist and I actually thought that X-Factor would take 4th place in this poll. The fact that X-Factor crushed Carey’s X-Men puts a big smile on my face.
I was actually surprised that Uncanny X-Men came in first place over Astonishing X-Men. Astonishing X-Men has gotten rave reviews and has generally been regarded as the strongest X-Men title. I really expected Astonishing X-Men to take first place.
The fact that Uncanny X-Men took first place is a real testament to the brand loyalty that title possesses as well as Uncanny X-Men’s massive marketing power. Personally, I would have placed Uncanny X-Men as the third best X-title.
Carey’s X-Men ended up exactly where I thought it belonged, but I didn’t expect it to take 4th place. I figures it would end up either in 2nd or 3rd place.
Poor New X-Men didn’t get any love at all. Only two votes! I don’t read this title, so I can’t really comment on the quality of the story and artwork.
Thanks for participating. It is always cool to see what the followers of The Revolution think about the world of comic books.
