Colin Furze Makes X-Men Pyro Flamethrowers, Goes Crazy (Again)

Colin Furze Makes X-Men Pyro Flamethrowers, Goes Crazy (Again)
For those who don’t know, Pyro is one of the X-Men. A lesser known character in the Marvel universe. Even so, his backpack mounted flamethrower is pretty darn cool. I mean hot. It is kind of lame though that Pyro can’t produce fire on his own, but can only control it.

Guy Walks on Ceiling with Homemade Magneto Boots, Laughs Maniacally

Guy Walks on Ceiling with Homemade Magneto Boots, Laughs Maniacally
Check out this video of Colin Furze (the maniac who gave us those cool Wolverine claws) walking on the ceiling using his newly-completed, homemade Magneto boots. I question his sanity after seeing him laughing hysterically over the feat.

X-Mans Art Show: Children of the Coloring Book

X-Mans Art Show: Children of the Coloring Book
10 years ago, pop artist Brandon Bird found an X-Men coloring & activity book filled with awful sketches at a dollar store. Brandon eventually decided to turn it into a collaborative work with his fellow artist friends.

DIY Working Wolverine Claws Snikt! on & off

DIY Working Wolverine Claws Snikt! on & off
We’ve seen a pair of electrified Wolverine claws, but part of what makes the actual weapons cool is that Wolvie can make them come out and retract at will. Inventor Colin Furze figured out a way to achieve that in his replica.

LEGO X-Men X-Mansion Concept: A Home for Gifted Minifigs

LEGO X-Men X-Mansion Concept: A Home for Gifted Minifigs
Minifigs are often hated and feared by humans because they are different. Also because it hurts when you step on them. True believer Glen Bricker wants to build a haven for these extraordinary toys with his proposal for an official LEGO X-Men X-Mansion, aka Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.

X-23 Cosplay Girl: The Perfect Killing Machine

X-23 Cosplay Girl: The Perfect Killing Machine
Laura Kinney aka X-23 was cloned from a damaged copy of Wolverine’s genes, and was created to be an assassin in the X-Men universe. With her sharp Adamantium claws, I certainly wouldn’t want to mess with her.

Ex-Men: Professor-X Fires Nightcrawler

Ex-Men: Professor-X Fires Nightcrawler
Comedian Pete Holmes is at it again with another Ex-Men video. In the series, he dresses like Professor-X and fires some underperforming X-Men mutant. The last time I mentioned one of these videos it was the incredibly lame Jubilee that was getting the axe.

Professor X Fires Jubilee

Professor X Fires Jubilee
Let’s be honest, some of the superheroes created in the Marvel universe aren’t all that super. Sure, we have some really cool superheroes such as Wolverine, but we also have some really lame superheroes like Jubilee.

Pokémon & Heroines T-shirts: PokéPinups

Pokémon & Heroines T-shirts: PokéPinups
Many Pokémon have an affinity to natural elements, a trope that they share with other superheroes. Singapore-based shirt designer Barefists figured it would be nice to mashup the critters to famous heroines that share their elemental strengths in what he’s calling PokePinups.

X-Men Sentinel Stained Glass Window is Mag-Neato!

X-Men Sentinel Stained Glass Window is Mag-Neato!
Relax mutants. That is not a real sentinel. You can go back to your schoolwork which Professor X is expecting in the morning. This awesome stained glass creation was made by Zero Wing Labs and it looks amazing.

Edmonton, Canada Man Wants a 1,000-Foot Wolverine Statue

Edmonton, Canada Man Wants a 1,000-Foot Wolverine Statue
Detroit is working on a Robocop statue, so of course Edmonton, Canada wants their own statue now. Not just any statue, mind you. They want a 1,000 foot tall statue of Wolverine. If this keeps up we are going to have superhero statues everywhere.

Gambit & Rogue T-shirts for You and Your Cherie

Gambit & Rogue T-shirts for You and Your Cherie
The love team of Rémy LeBeau and Anna Marie…Something was one of the most popular couples in mainstream comics, partly because for a long time, Rogue’s power meant they couldn’t make physical contact without Gambit turning into the world’s most charming vegetable.

Wolverine Classic Hoodie: Adamantium Claws Sold Seperately

Wolverine Classic Hoodie: Adamantium Claws Sold Seperately
While many of us are used to Hugh Jackman’s big-screen version of Wolverine, comic book purists prefer the original version, complete with yellow body and pointy black ears. So here you go…

X-Men Get Their Own New Pinball Machine

X-Men Get Their Own New Pinball Machine
Growing up in the 80s means I spent a good bit of time in an arcade playing video games. I was always more of a Pac-Man or Pole Position type of junkie, but I did generally creep over and play a couple games of pinball in between pixelated plays. 

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.

Superheroes and Villains CLIMB a Wall

Superheroes and Villains CLIMB a Wall
If there’s one thing that many superheroes and villains seem to have in common is that they inevitably find themselves rappelling scaling up the side of a building for one reason or another. Artist Nicholas Hyde (aka “Harshness“) made note of this unusual behavioral pattern, and has documented it for us with this cool series of illustrations.
