* AngstWhatAngst: No matter how many bad things happens to Pizie, she is angsty about it only when somebody directly pushes the issue.

** While Rockslide has [[MyGreatestFailure his greatest failure]] with the deaths of the students on the bus, he's still possibly the best-adjusted member of the cast, and absolutely loves being a mutant and an X-Man. The fact he's not exactly bright tends to help the angst roll off him.


Added DiffLines:

*** Although Hellion was a bit of a dick to her when they first met (though it's often exaggerated), he becomes one of the first people to ''actively'' try to help her learn that she's better than what the Facility made her. Logan may have talked a big game, but it was Julian who made the first real steps in her later development.

** Even ShipSinking by Marjorie Liu hasn't stopped Hellion/X-23 from being the preferred ship for both characters.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The Elixir/Wither/Wallflower love triangle; now that all of them are dead in the Marvel continuity. Poor Elixir died ''twice'', once in the ''Wolverines'' mini-series before being resurrected by Brian Michael Bendis for Comicbook/AllNewXMen. And then he was killed ''again'' for Comicbook/UncannyXMen in favor of Triage.

* MarySue: ComicBook/{{X 23}} under Kyle and Yost, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Fittingly, [[CreatorsPet they created her]].
** CopyCatSue: ''Duh''!
** GodModeSue: Seems to gain a new animalistic sense whenever the plot calls for it, enabling her to figure plot points out before anyone else.
** JerkSue: Has the personality of a coldhearted assassin amongst largely naive, inexperienced teenagers.
** RelationshipSue: Gets involved with [[DracoInLeatherPants Hellion]] after Wind Dancer is shooed out of the plot off-panel.
** SympatheticSue: A candidate for the most messed-up backstory of any X-character.

* FriendlyFandoms: There is big overlap between fans of ''New X-Men'', ''AvengersAcademy'', ''{{Runaways}}'' and ''YoungAvengers'', so these four fandoms are likely to stick together.

* AlienScrappy: Warlock and Gossamyr; Shatterstar also probably counts when written by Rob Liefeld
** The presence of extraterrestrials on a ''mutant'' team was handwaved away since they [[AssPull had different personalities than those typical of their species]] (this was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] and parodied in an issue of ''What The...?'' where the New Mutants parody team had a ''stray dog'' join for similar reasons).
*** Warlock actually was a mutant of his species, however, as unlike the rest of the technarchy, he was able to infect people without it being permanent, and absorb life energy without killing them.

* UnfortunateImplications: Magma falling for Empath after repeatedly being mindraped by him.
** Danielle Moonstar who is a walking Native American stereotype at times, right down to her mistrust of "whites". Which is amazing given the team also includes a hulking Apache warrior.



* TheScrappy: Ink was hated by many fans. The fact that the writer went to extreme lengths (like, you know, giving him the power of ''Phoenix'') to make him seem important did not go over well with fans, and he also had the stigma of being a human rather than a mutant. Being a JerkAss and bizarrely ending up with Emma Frost in a BadFuture also didn't help.
* UnfortunateImplications: Apparently, according to Marc Guggenheim, Dust, one of the few heroic Muslim characters in mainstream comics, will inevitably become a supervillain in the future and kill all of her fellow X-Men.

Added DiffLines:

* MyRealDaddy: Warlock and Legion were introduced when Bill Sienkiewicz was on the book, and due to his unusual art style they have never looked right when they were drawn by other people (most artists just copied his style for that particular character, which caused them to jar with their surroundings). This isn't so unusual with Warlock due to his nature as a being of twisted organic metal; but Legion looks really strange (see The Muir Island saga in Uncanny X-Men for an example).

* FetishFuel : Selene and her mind control could be used quite erotically; when she forces Mirage to enjoy the sacrifices, for example.
** Empath's powers and the way he uses them. He has absolutely no qualms about manipulating another person's emotions against their will all because he thinks it's amusing.
** The Smiley Faces.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Cypher was a polarizing character amongst fans of the title in the 1980s, in part because he had sensible everyday mutant powers in the form of the ability to understand any form of language, which sadly also made him utterly useless in fight scenes unless he merged with the alien Warlock. So when Chris Claremont left the book and Louise Simonson took over, Simonson decided to kill off Cypher since she didn't feel like coming up with excuses for why he was MIA in fight scenes, plus felt that no one liked him. Sadly, when she killed him off, fans revolted against the death. [[FanDumb Even the fans who were calling for Doug to be killed off!]] And to this day still fans rant and rave about how Cypher had so much potential that was utterly wasted by Simonson misreading the room.
