LLID 136: X-Men Animal House! by johntrumbull LLID 136: X-Men Animal House! by johntrumbull
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!

No problem! :thumbsup: I love Animal House! I'll have to see if I can find it on DVD. I know it was released some years ago.
