Hello there! :howdy:

Here's the mutants from the pages of Astonishing X-Men, a great comic written by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more!

First, I have Cyclops, aka Scott Summers, leader of the X-Men, a mutant with the ability to fire optic blasts from his eyes. (The structure of his face looks perfect for his visor, buuuut, since the visor is actually his eyebrow and eyes, there is a slight blinking distortion when he blinks.)

Next, is Colossus, aka Piotr Rasputin, a mutant with the ability to transform his skin into a thick steel. (use the cheat "stretchskeleton 1.1" to make him just a tad taller than everyone else) (Hair requires Nightlife)

Then, there is the White Queen, aka Emma Frost, a mutant with the power of telepathy and the ability to change her body into a diamond like substance.

Then, there is Wolverine, aka James Howlett, a mutant with a healing factor, heightened senses, and adamantium bonded to his skeleton. (use the cheat "stretchskeleton .90" to make him just tad shorter than everyone else)

After that, we have Beast, aka Henry McCoy, the mutant with heightened agility, super strength, and super intellect.

Finally, there is Shadowcat, aka Kitty Pryde, the mutant with the ability to turn her body and anything she comes into contact with intangible, allowing her to pass through objects and people.

Sweet. I love what you've done with Emma's costume, by the way. (I've seen others that make her look like she's still Sebastian Shaw's bitch.) Excellent work.

Uh, you've hotlinked to an image from buffy.nu, so most people will see a roadblock. A very nice roadblock though. A SMG roadblock.

Uh, could you explain this to me? I replaced the pic, even though I could see it just fine. And what is a SMG roadblock. Furthermore, did you have any comments on the skins, or did you just stop by to point out a mistake? :naughty: Thanx, much appreciated! :censored:



As for everyone else! Thanx, I'm glad you all are enjoying, usually when I start working on the current costumes, a costume change is just around the corner, let's hope I can get the rest done before that happens, lol. It's difficult not to make Emma's clothes look like how she acts, but, I went with the comic book version, and this is similar to that, just no cape. :wise:

Um... technically, Joss doesnt write the XMen, I dont think. He just did the movie.
Either way, LOVE the skins! :D

Actually, the writers for X-Men (2000) were Tom DeSanto and Bryan Singer (who also directed) with a screenplay by David Hayter.

The writers for X-Men 2 (2003) were Bryan Singer (also directed this one), David Hayter, and Zak Penn with a screenplay by Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris, and David Hayter.

The writers for X-Men 3 (not released yet) are Zak Penn and Simon Kinberg.

Astonishing X-Men is a newer title from Marvel, staring the sims above, and atleast the first 12 issues were written by the creative team of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday.

Also, be on the look out for Ultimate X-Men written by Bryan Singer, director of the first X-Men movies, I think it's coming soon.

Btw, glad ya liked the skins.
