The Order Of X: X Men Heroes As Medieval Characters


X-Men-Heroes-As-Medieval-Characters-By-Nate-Hallinan-1

The Order of X’ reimagines Marvel’s famous mutant superheroes as medieval characters. Wolverine is now Wolve’Rune, Professor X is Lord Xavier, and so forth. As Nate Hallinan sees it in the fan-fiction universe he’s created, ”The Order of X is a group of ‘gifted’ individuals in the service of Lord Charles Xavier. The Order provides sanctuary and protection to individuals outcast by society due to their innate abnormalities. These people are often misidentified as monsters, demons, warlocks and witches”.

The Real Life Ninja Turtles?


What if Shredder, Splinter, Rocksteady and Bebop were real? What if the toxic ooze that created the 90’s action film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spilled into the sewers today? The results would probably look a lot like the pictures above.  Now for a confession, before this post, only my immediate family knew that I had an unhealthy obsession with the Ninja Turtles.  TMNT backpacks, jackets, umbrellas, bed sheets, from the years of 3 to 5, I was all about it.  So when I saw the works of artist Dave Rapoza, it hit close to home.  Rapoza has updated the TMNT, and given them all a brand new real-life look. Even the creepy little fly villain, Baxter, from the cartoon got a makeover.  Each new piece is both gorgeous and horrifying at the same time.  And although there are no pics of the star turtles themselves, it definitely makes me yearn for the old days of the Foot Clan.
