ABC S.H.I.E.L.D Series Pilot Being Co-written by Joss Whedon

X-Babies: Before They Were X-Men

X-Babies: Before They Were X-Men
I don’t remember the exact issue in which the X-Men became babies, but I seem to remember seeing them as such, for a short while at least. Regardless, illustrator Skottie Young had his own vision of the super-powered tots and redesigned some of the classic X-Men as babies.
