Meet the Samurai X-Men

Have you ever imagined what the X-Men would look like if they were samurai warriors? Maybe not, but there is merit in doing so. And, if you like the X-Men and think that the ancient samurais kicked ass, then the Samurai X-Men art set by deviantART user genesischant will delight you.

He describes himself as a “strange fellow” (to be sure), but this is definitely one of those cases where strangeness is to be celebrated. He seems to have a penchant for samurai warriors, which is quite understandable. He has already made some waves creating a mashup of The Avengers and samurais, but for X-Men fans, this new set will make your week.

Professor X and Magneto
This couple has a classic love turned strong enmity story behind them, and while that may not be obvious just by looking at the artwork, the details about each personality that are shown are nothing short of brilliant!
