It’s been awhile since I’ve seen X-Men: The Animated Series. With X-Men ’97 coming up, I’m definitely due for a rewatch.

This piece by Julien Rico Jr. is more than enough to get you in the mood for said rewatch. You can practically hear the classic theme song just by looking at it. The characters look faithful to how they appeared on the show. But at the same time, Rico did his own thing. What’s not to love?

Astonishing Art: Keke Palmer as Rogue by Meech Doodle

Keke Palmer created some Twitter buzz last week when she responded positively to a fan’s video explaining why she needs to play Rogue in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Naturally, her response piqued the interests of some artists. Meech Doodle is one of them. He presented fans with this awesome rendering of Palmer as Rogue.

I was a little skeptical when I looked at the idea on paper. But when I saw this image, I immediately got it. Naturally, internet trolls got their feathers ruffled because of the race factor. But she looks like a pretty good Rogue to me.

So…why the hell not? Let’s make it happen!

Incidentally, I met Keke Palmer once, about 15 years ago. I was a reporter covering a school spelling event. She was there in the wake of Akeelah and the Bee. Really nice, personable kid. I’m happy she’s found so much success.

As the cover kind of indicates, this issue is more like Ms. Marvel & X-Men, as opposed to just Ms. Marvel & Wolverine. That’s a little disappointing for me, as I was hoping to see more of their personalities clashing.

What’s more, all these heroes don’t really do anything other than swat flies. Sure, they’re big robotic flies. And there a lot of them. But still.

It looks like this is the first installment of a multi-parter that sees Ms. Marvel work with a variety of Marvel heroes. So maybe they’re playing the long game with this one.
