Seriously, I don’t get how Wolverine ever successfully kills the X-Men in this sort of story. Also Rogue, don’t mention that you used to be romantically involved with Lorna’s on again off again dad. 

Check my Patreon out if you’d like to support the comic, even a little bit helps. Or just to check out the reward tiers, I tried to make them fun: https://www.patreon.com/waitingforthet

“Magnet School Grad” is a neat way of nodding to Lorna’s Masters in Geophysics. 🙂 And Magneto too of course.

This was pointed out to me by @lordtimeblogposts, and it’s neat!

As I’ve said many times, I think Lorna is better off with her iconic costume or a variation of it, but this looks good too – and it’s a commission and those are whatever the commissioner wants. It’s interesting to see a cross between the X-Factor uniform (which I don’t like, same as any team uniforms on her) and the most important identifying features of headgear and cape.

Hello! This is one of the things I stumbled across recently and needed to post here. It took a fair amount of time to get all of this together, because not only are the images scattered, but I wanted to make sure they were the best quality I could find.

All of these pictures are from something called BurlXMen, a burlesque take on these X-Men, including some genderswap versions of male characters. They were taken at San Diego Comic Con 2016.

There are more pictures out there. Because I’m a Polaris fan, I only bothered with pictures including her, and I left out minor variants. If you’re a fan of one of these other characters, it’s worth your time to check around (including at the links for photographers given below) for more pictures of them.
