My ten year old self enjoyed the Wild C.A.T.s cartoon, it wasn't as good as X-men, but it was a fun time waster with an interesting scifi premise: Two alien races have been engaged in a shadow war for millennia, one defending mankind the other trying to dominate it. The villainous aliens have the ability to posses human hosts, the other team must recruit their allies from a pool of human/alien hybrids who have inherited special gifts.

The equivalent to X-men's Jubilee, the naive teen who serves as an audience surrogate was called Voodoo and she had the power to see, and exorcise the evil Daemonites.

What I didn't know when I was 10 was that in the comic books she was a stripper. The way this aspect of the character is handled in the original Image comics is worlds apart from how her DC Universe counterpart was treated.

UNCANNY X-MEN #275. Magneto, Rogue and Nick Fury vs. Zaladane and Savage Land Mutates. Zaladane has a machine that is stealing Magneto's power for her. (Some wonder if this story means Zaladane is Magneto's daughter, as Lorna Dane is Zaladane's sister.)

I am not Charles Xavier. )
