No, I don't mean what you think the subject means.

In the "Colossus Rabbit" topic (http://www.byrnerobotics.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=5503 6), Mr. Byrne drew a version of Colossus as an anthropomorphic bunny. This led me to a very naughty thought.

The X-Babies was a stupid idea, I thought. So let's think about... the X-CRITTERS! What animals should the X-Men be anthropomorphized into? Straight or silly is fine. Bring fish into it too... what difference if they're water-breathers? The whole concept is silly anyhow.

Only one rule... you can't make Logan a wolverine, nor Hank a gorilla, nor Jean a phoenix. Let's not swing at the horribly easy ones.

What would be fun? How about...

Angel as an armadillo.
Beast as a naked mole rat.
Cyclops as a hammerhead shark.
Iceman as a porcupine.
Marvel Girl as a gorilla.
Professor X as a centipede. Still unable to use his legs, so with a wheelchair that's half a mile long.

What can you think of?

A limbless thing with no face? Well that's not very dynamic!

Storm would be a siamese cat.

Cyclops as a lemur?

Kitty as a hedgehog?

And they would fight Hogneto, porcine master of magnetism, the arch swine who threatens to drag the name of all mutants through the muck of his sty.

Back in X-Men Annual #12, when Mojo was exploring new revenue streams to replace the X-Men, he tried creating commercially appealing variations of the team. One was a team of Art Adams designed funny animals.



Before that in the "Marvel Tails" universe that gave us Spider-Ham, Cpt. Americat, and Hulk-Bunny, there were the X-Bugs, created by Steve Mellor.


In 2013 or thereabouts, during the Marvel Now! promotion, Chris Samnee did some variant covers featuring this team of funny animal X-Men.

That makes much more sense.
