The X-Men series is one of the most beloved comic book entities that have become synonymous with the world of superheroes. Over the years, we have seen the X-Men become arguably the most popular cartoon series based off a comic and have many hit blockbuster films that are still going on today. The group of mutants born with superpowers and made into outcasts because of it became the superhero team we all loved. Today’s Avengers and Justice League stories are more popular but the X-Men have been consistently more relevant through the decades due to various characters providing a unique role on the team in an entertaining form.
Wolverine is the snarky bad-ass that has regenerative skills and actual claws. Jean Grey has telepathic and telekinesis powers that can give her the advantage in every fight. Cyclops can shoot powerful beams of concussive energy from his eyes. Storm can manipulate the weather in a very aggressive manner. Many of the X-Men have super strength, the ability to fly or other great powers that make them cool and effective in the stories. While most are great, there have been a couple of horrible characters with less useful skills and no real reason for existing in the universe.
The characters that have no true value to the X-Men are not only unnecessary but they are absolutely horrible. It just goes to show that even the minds with the best ideas will give out some clunkers every now and then. Everyone has to learn from their failures to grow and become better at their jobs and that remains true for comic book writers. We’ll examine those stories here and go through the reasons why these mutants should have never gotten the call-up to the X-Men. They all found a way to make us roll our eyes and shake our heads wondering how they were made into official superheroes. These are the top ten most useless X-Men characters of all time.
His name was X-Man. Enough said.

Slipstream is the only one possibly lame enough to top the other nine horrible X-Men characters. While Slipstream held the impressive power of being able to teleport, there was one glaring flaw that held him back. Slipstream would have to set up a surfboard and stand in the correct surfing form to transport to where he wanted to get to. Imagine being in a fight and your partner needing to find the time to set a surfboard up in hopes of getting to your aid before your demise. There’s also no way he can be subtle about it considering he has to travel with a giant surfboard at all times to have any hope of helping. Slipstream was completely useless and Wolverine should have broken the board on his head to end him for good.
