My favorite characters in the X-men are all women. Storm, Phoenix, Rachel Grey (also Phoenix), Kitty Pryde and Magik, Illyana Rasputin. When she was drawn by Bill Sienkievicz, I was enthralled: here as this sylph like child whose power was actually pretty monstrous: I loved the dichotomy. She was the blond girl who looked like an angel but was actually demonic.

Ah, but she is like an angel when it comes to her inner goodness (as long as the "evil" side of her doesn't take over). Beautiful drawing. I love it.
