Today is the last day you can vote in the third annual #XMenVote, which allows fans to pick a new member to the X-Men lineup. Winners will be announced in the Hellfire Gala comic out in July.
Voting opened on January 31st, and while fans have been clamoring to figure out who has the lead, we now have information that could influence last-second voting.
Things are looking good for Juggernaut and Cannonball, who are neck and neck with the highest projection, according to Marvel.com.

If that’s not enough motivation to get folks to the polls, Marvel has revealed how key X-Men creators are voting. See below for their picks.
X-Men Vote: 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.”
X-Men Vote: 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!”
X-Men 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.”
X-Men Vote: 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.”
X-Men Vote: 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 challenges…today? Vote Dazzler! Turn all that noise into power!”
X-Men Vote: GERRY DUGGAN VOTES CANNONBALL
“Want your favorite Super Heroes to have velocity and charm? Then lock, load, and vote Sam Guthrie, your Cannonball, onto the next roster of X-Men.”
Voting closes today at 11:59 pm ET, February 3, 2023. Did your favorite X-Men writer vote for your pick? Let us know in the comments.
