X-Men First Semester by BillWalko X-Men First Semester by BillWalko
X-Men: "First Semester"
Welcome to your first semester at the the Charles Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, kids. Hope you survive the experience! As much as I love Wolverine, Storm, Rogue and the rest, I have a special fondness for the original five X-Men. It was like "The Breakfast Club" with eye blasts and telekinesis. It's too bad Marvel rushed through the team's high school years, unaware of the group's future longevity. Here's my version the the team's early days, playing up each of their personalities...

There's sullen Scott Summers (Cyclops), wealthy gadabout Warren Worthington III (Angel), beautiful and brainy Jean Grey (Marvel Girl), boisterous Bobby Drake (Iceman) and brutish yet bookish Hank McCoy (Beast). Now get to class, muties!

This is absolutely great! The cartoony style is like a Colleen Coover or Chris Giarusso. I wouldn't change a thing!

Your chosen style works quite well with your chosen subject matter. You've asked for critiques, but I have nothing really to criticize!

To correct what BenRG said about all four boys liking Jean, only Scott, Warren and Hank liked her. Bobby just thought the others were being kind of ridiculous. Other that that, this picture is great! I love all of your versions of Marvel stuff.
