Whether they’re taking up the sparkling personas of Jubilee or Dazzler or the futuristic styles of Bishop or Cable, there’s a wealth of opportunity bring the diverse and colorful world of X-Men to life through cosplay. These cosplayers exemplify that diversity in stellar form. These are the best X-Men cosplays.
It's a good time to be an X-Men fan. It's seemed recently like Marvel's mutants were getting the short end of the merchandizing stick, in favor of a focus on the Marvel Studios movies star Avengers and attempts to make the Inhumans happen.
But now, with the upbeat ResurrXion on the horizon, that seems to be changing, and one step in that change is the introduction of a selection of classic X-Men character to Funko's line of Marvel collectibles.
All week, Marvel has been taunting us on its official Twitter account with teasers labelled "ResurrXion," which reveal the titles for X-books that come after this winter's Inhumans Vs X-Men crossover. Marvel has confirmed to ComicsAlliance that these are all new ongoing series, but aside from an interview on Marvel.com with editors Mark Paniccia and Daniel Ketchum, the publisher hasn't said much else so far, and no creative teams have been revealed.
While we wait for more details, let's look at these teasers to get an idea of what's coming for the X-Men line in 2017.
It's been a long time since the Marvel Legends toy line has dabbled with the likes of the X-Men. There have been a few lines here and there, but the frequency of Avengers and Spider-Man series has drowned out the past efforts rather loudly. This most recent wave of figures bodes well for the future of X-Men at Hasbro though. The last time we saw the X-Men, it was a smaller set with a Build-a-Jubilee available only at Toys 'R Us. This wave is available everywhere, and it's huge.
I don't just mean there are a lot of figures --- there are eight in total --- I mean it's physically massive. That's thanks in part to the Build-a-Figure being Juggernaut, who is among the biggest BAFs offered in the line. Still, eight figures is about as big as a collections in the Marvel Legends line get, but it's hard to be disappointed when the roster is as strong as this one.
Here’s some news that’ll make you raise an eyebrow: An interesting rumor regarding Deadpool 2 began circulating over the weekend, specifically regarding the casting of Cable, the villainous character teased in the Deadpool post-credits scene. Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren and Ron Perlman have all tossed their hat in the ring for the part, but if this new report is true, then Fox may be taking a slightly different approach to the character.
Recently, Marvel has been releasing teaser images with the tagline "Divided We..." featuring two characters separated by shattered imagery, and all we knew was that it pointed to the publisher's fall slate of comics set to be unveiled later this month under the Marvel NOW banner. Today, Marvel released a complete teaser titled "Divided We Stand," featuring two distinct groups of heroes and villains separated by a literal divide.
Who are the greatest X-Men of all time? To mark the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, we came up with the ultimate list of the top 100 characters ever to wear the X as part of the extended family of Professor Charles Xavier's Westchester school. These are the very best heroes (and sometimes villains) in more than fifty years of stories about Marvel mutants fighting for a world that hates and fears them!
The final list was determined by a combination of our expert panel's rankings and our readers' votes, and as you might expect, the results offer an amazing selection of icons, powerhouses, and gorgeous freaks --- not to mention a few unexpectedly popular weirdoes. But it wouldn't be the X-Men without embracing the appeal of the weird.
Who are the greatest ever X-Men? We’re going to try to answer that question with your help, by putting the spotlight on different individual X-Men from across the franchise’s long history and pairing up your votes with the votes and opinions of our panel of highly opinionated X-Men fans. Your scores will be added to ours to determine the top 100 X-Men.
Today we come to the end of our list of 125 jury-picked contenders for the top 100 X-Men, and we've saved some of the best for last. This is your chance to vote for the X-Men's first villain, its swashbuckling soul, and some of the definitive heroes of the '90s, including Jubilee, Feral, and Shatterstar, and the two biggest of the big dudes with guns.
The list of actors that want to join Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2 just keeps growing. As teased in the post-credits scene from the first film, the sequel is adding comic book fave Cable to the mix, which has inspired a few actors of a certain…aesthetic to begin campaigning for the role of the Merc With a Mouth’s badass new antagonist. Hellboy star Ron Perlman is the latest actor to make a case for his casting as Cable, and as far as social media campaigns go, he could very well give Stephen Lang a run for his money.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
