All-Ages All-Stars: X-Men: First Semester

Note: In All-Ages All-Stars, P:R contributors put a kid-friendly spin on familiar comics characters. Today we’re looking at Bill Walko‘s awesome X-Men redesign! – Dean Trippe


Bill had this to say about his Teens of the Atom:

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!
