* HomosocialHeterosexuality: While Wolverine and Cyclops occasionally have heartwarming moments it's rare, as most of their interactions are tense due to their shared attraction to Jean. Even when they are in danger, or have more pressing things to fight about, or even of she's currently dead, it's always about Jean. Right down to the morning Logan finds Scott in bed with Emma Frost. Remember, Jean's already dead at this point but for some reason her memory is reason enough for Logan to take a personal interest in Scott's... personal interests.

* MultinationalTeam: One of ''X-Men'''s defining traits is the incredibly diverse cast, being quite possibly the popularizer for it. It was part of Chris Claremont's desire to show that being a mutant is a world thing, not just an American one, and it's been that way ever since. In fact, the early run of Stan Lee where the entire cast was completely homogeneous now looks like EarlyInstallmentWeirdness because of it. 1975's "All-New, All-Different" X-Men is what began this trope. It saw the inclusion of Wolverine from Canada, Storm from East Africa, Nightcrawler from West Germany, Banshee from Ireland, Sunfire from Japan, Colossus from Russia (Eastern Siberia, to be precise), and Thunderbird, an Apache. The success of this initiated rosters to always be diverse, and to give readers multitudes of different characters to latch onto. Since then, it grew to further include Kitty Pryde (later called Shadowcat, Jewish), Rogue (from the Deep South, but raised by a lesbian couple and fluent in French since childhood), Psylocke (British), Forge (Cheyenne), Jubilee (Chinese-American), Gambit (Cajun), Bishop (Black, at least partly of Australian Aboriginal descent), Maggott (South Africa), Thunderbird III (Indian), and so on.

* DressedLikeADominatrix:
** The Hellfire Club's Black Queens and White Queens wear outfits like this. ComicBook/EmmaFrost, even after leaving the Hellfire Club, continues wearing variations of her White Queen outfit, transforming it into her own identity. She's of course an AntiHero.
** When Madelyne Pryor became the evil Goblin Queen, she wore a skimpy cropped black leather shirt, a leather loincloth, and thigh-high boots. In a rare male version of this trope, the same happens to her partner Havok who becomes Goblin King, complete with thigh-high boots.
** Some versions of ''Madame Hydra'''s costume feature a skintight green sleeveless catsuit, opera gloves, and high heels. She's often portrayed wielding a whip.
** Illyana Rasputin/Magik also tends to wear the all black leather bondage gear.

* ''VideoGame/XMen'', the classic BeatEmUp arcade game from Konami, based off the unsold 1989 ''Pryde of the X-Men'' pilot[[note]]it was pitched to Creator/{{NBC}} (which had aired ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'' earlier in the decade- they had tried to spinoff an X-Men series from that, but no go), but they turned it down; as a result of having culled funding from Marvel's AnimatedAdaptation of ''Franchise/RoboCop'', the pilot aired as part of the syndicated ''Marvel Action Universe'' block in place of ''[=RoboCop=]'', and was also released on video; it wasn't related to the 1992 cartoon, though[[/note]]
