So for this week's edition of So, Who Would Win?, I decided to pit two iconic teams against each other in full-on combat.
Today, I'll be pitting the 90's Blue Team-era X-Men against the team they inspired, the WildC.A.T.S.
For those not in the know, back in the early 90's, the Editors and creative staff were faced with a dilemea since there were so many X-Men around after the whole Muir Isle Saga. So, it was decided to fold all of them into the X-Men proper, but split them up into two main teams: Blue and Gold.
The Gold Team was comprised of Storm(as leader), Jean Grey, Iceman, Colossus, and Archangel, with Sunfire coming in briefly, leaving, then Bishop joined up later on to complete that team.
Yeah, not really a super-exciting line-up is it?
that's because all the good cool picks were already used on the Blue Team.
Their roster was:
Cyclops(as leader) Wolverine, Jubilee, Gambit, Psylocke, Rogue, and Beast.
If you'd had thrown in Jean and Storm, you'd have had the X-Men Animated show line-up right there. (Which just so happens to be coming back, as the 92' Animated line-up is showing back up in Battleworld during Secret Wars.)
And really, Jean Grey aside, the Blue Team was by and far the best and most powerful X-Men lineup at the time. No wonder they were more popular. I know I preferred them over the Gold Team everytime.
For the WildCATS, I'm using the original line-up: Spartan, Grifter, Zealot, Warblade, Maul, and Voodoo, with Void and Lord Emp rounding things out.
Just at first glance, I'd still say the Blue Team is the odds-on favorites to win.
What you guys think?
The X-Men(Blue Team)
VS. The WildC.A.T.S.
(I am not ashamed to admit I had this game back in the day. Not bad for what it was.)
