The Line It Is Drawn #136 for 4/25/13! In tribute to the late Roger Ebert, this week we mashed up comic book characters with movies that Ebert gave four-star reviews to! I chose the suggestion of the X-Men Animal House style. Can't you just totally see Prof. X putting these guys on Double-Secret Probation?
If anyone's curious as to why I chose the character mashups that I did, here was my thinking on each:
Wolverine/Bluto: This one was a gimmie & the first thing that popped into my head when I read the suggestion. And honestly, both characters are best used as a spice, not as the main dish.
Cyclops/Hoover: President of the Deltas and the most straitlaced of the group.
Angel/Otter: The handsome, confident ladykiller of the group.
Iceman/Pinto: Young guy in the group who's good buddies with Flounder.
Beast/Flounder: Honestly, this was more for the physical similarity than anything. The thought of Stephen Furst playing Hank McCoy just amuses me.
Colossus/Boon: Has a troubled roller coaster of a relationship with Katie/Kitty.
I thought about including Banshee as D-Day, but it seemed like a reach. And frankly, six characters was enough to draw.
Hope you like it, folks!
