Nothing Unique to Offer

X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever - Max Bemis, Michael Walsh

Bailey is a perfectly ordinary high school kid, until he has his "you're a wizard Harry" moment and learns he is a mutant. Unfortunately he has a power that can only be used once and then he dies, which is like having no power except kind of worse.

 

The X-Men have always been about misfits and outcasts, but Bailey's ordinariness makes him an outcast among outcasts. The title and cover art make it look like Bailey is going to be MAD magazine's Alfred E. Neuman as an X-Man, but the tone is more pathos than comedy.
