A look at some Mutants

Ah yes. Another installment of “No Love,” the post dedicated to characters, issues, objects, and things that I feel get … No love. In this issue we will focus on mutants and we might as well start off with a potentially serious threat who isn't taken to seriously:

Quentin Quire

As stated, in the rankings of mutant’s threats, Quentin has all the makings of an evil mastermind, except the drive to actually carry out dastardly reads. He is an Omega level mutant but except for the occasional outburst he hasn’t really caught on. He first appears in the Grant Morrison written New X-Men #134. With recent Ebay sales around $8, this issue can easily be found in dollar bins.

Legion (David Heller)

The son of one of the most powerful mutant minds and the catalyst for the Age of Apocalypse, this sizable threat has never really been taken seriously in the mainstream comic collector market. About a year ago, this character's 1st appearance was making waves but has since cooled off. New Mutants #25-27 are the issues you want to target, as they are the 1st cameo of David Heller, 1st full issue is David Heller, and 1st as Legion, in issues 25-27 respectively. If collected in a set high-grade issues can go for as high as $25 on the bay, but if collected individually these can be found for a few bucks each.

Richter (Julio Esteban Richter)

Most recently making appendages alongside Sunspot in Avengers titles, this earthquake-generating mutant never really shook things up in terms of mass appeal. One of the few early Latino marvel characters, his 1st appearance in X-Factor #17 can easily be found for $1.

Doop

Though not a mutant per se, he did get his start around mutants and has accompanied them ever since. Usually taken for janitor at the Jean Grey institutions, this little guy had a following and even had his own serial. His first appearance is in X-Force #116. Ebay sales on this book range from $2-10 and again, can be found in dollar bins everywhere.

Warlock

Described as a cybernetic extraterrestrial superhero, this entity is also a non-mutant who runs with mutants. First seen in New Mutants #18, he was later killed off in issue #95.

    Great article!! I see all of these books often except X factor 17. I pick them up if I seem em for cover or lower. The Quire books have the most potential imo.
