If you’ve been listening to the podcast or visiting this site for awhile you know that I am a child of the 80’s and I’ve talked about Dungeons and Dragons being my gateway into the middle ages. Well in the town I grew up in there was only one place to buy D&D modules, the comic book store, which introduced me to a lot of other awesome characters! There was one team of mutants that caught my fancy and never let go, that’s right, the X-Men!
Recently I was browsing the internet and came across an excellent set of images of the X-Men set in the middle ages. Now as awesome as the X-Men are, placing them in the middle ages adds a great deal to their mystique. Marvel had a series with the X-Men set in the 1600’s, they should jump back in time a bit and have them visit the middle ages.
Nate Hallinan is the fantastic artist who created these images. He gave all the favorite characters a place in medieval lore. Professor Xavier is now Lord Xavier and Wolve’Rune (Wolverine) is an awesome dwarf with self-healing powers. One of my favorites is Colossus, who is a medieval blacksmith, with an iron hard body!
