The new X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer makes the film look like a total sausage fest. It features lots of gruff bros giving each other attitude, and “good friends” socking each other in the face. The one woman who gets a speaking line gets called a bitch. It’s disappointing. The X-Men have the best female characters in comics, and several are being played by Oscar-winners. I hope the actual film does better by them.
Time to submit your artwork to McKellen Me Softly! How’s your masterpiece coming?!
We realize that having the submission deadline on Tax Day is sort of cruel and unusual. If you are still working on your McKellen tribute, just send us an email at email@example.com so we know to expect it. Thanks!

Love seeing these together!
Methinks mine needs color?
I loved this little X-Men art meme.
The classified ad section of a newspaper is one of the last places you’d expect to find an astonishing optical illusion, which is part of what makes this one so amazing. This entire newspaper page is a Corona Kitchen advertisement created by Colombia-based creative director Felipe Salazar. By cleverly manipulating text size and spacing, Salazar made it appear as though a tiny 3D kitchen has been embedded in the columns of text. Look carefully and you’ll see countertop, cabinets, a stove and a range hood.

I love these costumes. I don’t care who knows. The comics were terrible, but I miss the overheated garishness and hyper-weaponized camp.
The originals were more elegantly presented:
Well balanced as a team, but individual costumes that all work together visually, but are each unique.
Don’t worry, Copper Kid. You’ll fit right in. Well, as best you can, I guess. You may be the only non-human in the Silver Hawks, and you sure talk funny, but here aboard the Miraj we value diversity. That’s why even though the rest of us dress in silver, if you look at the small details, it’s easy to tell us apart.
It’s our job to keep the riffraff out. You know, “undesirables” and seedy types that pop up in the universe. They could be up to all sorts of nonsense. Say, if someone’s wearing weird glasses or a shirt that looks too trendy? It’s best to pull them over and find out what the heck they’re up to. They could be trying to eat a planet or hijack a shipment of valuable orphans.
Upholding earth-based-values across the galaxy is a tough job, and you’ve got a lot to learn, but we’ll get you up to speed. Still, if we want this mentoring program to continue, we’ve got to show our managers results. That’s why at the end of every day, we’ll give you a standardized test about Earth. Won’t that be great?
