The third annual X-Men Election is officially underway, and X-fans all across the world are making their voices heard—including our own Marvel Comics creators! As voting ramps up for each of the six candidates, X-MEN RED writer Al Ewing, DEADPOOL writer Alyssa Wong, LEGION OF X writer Si Spurrier, IMMORTAL X-MEN writer Kieron Gillen, MARAUDERS writer Steve Orlando, and X-MEN writer Gerry Duggan revealed who they voted for and why they think you should vote for them, too.

Al Ewing Votes Frenzy

"As S.W.O.R.D.'s resident ambassador, Joanna Cargill embodies Roosevelt's philosophy: speak softly and don't bother carrying anything because you can bench-press ten tons and you're almost completely indestructible. A vote for Frenzy is a vote for diplomacy."

Alyssa Wong Votes Jubilee

"Is your life (and X-Men roster) missing a certain spark? Don't get fireworked up about it, just head to the polls and vote for Jubilee! Free chili fries included with every vote!"

Si Spurrier Votes Juggernaut

"Despite everything his sketchy stepbrother has thrown at him, Juggernaut remains a simply irresistible kind of guy. While everyone else is punching, kicking, and blasting their way at problems, Cain Marko is using his head. Hard. Vote for a candidate with the courage of his (many) convictions and a (literal) inability to make embarrassing U-turns."

Kieron Gillen Votes Prodigy

"It's a little known fact that the X-Men are spectacularly bad at pub quizzes. Even the Defenders beat them. The Defenders! Let us bring this era of shame to an end. A vote for Prodigy on the X-Men is a vote for the X-Men not flunking music trivia rounds ever again."

Steve Orlando Votes Dazzler

"Dazzler is just the high-intensity candidate the X-Men need! For years, fans have screamed her name! Who better than the hero and chart-topping recording artist that's reinvented herself time and time again to help Krakoa's premiere team of heroes adapt to meet tomorrow's Vote Dazzler! Turn all that noise into power!"
