The Best I Yam: Ben Towle’s X-Men/E.C. Segar mash-up

by Ben Towle

Creator Ben Towle channeled Popeye creator E.C. Segar to draw the Uncanny X-Men. “I used E.C. Segar’s Thimble Theater characters as my models here,” he said, noting he used the X-Men crew that were active in the X-Men/Teen Titans crossover from the 1980s.



So who are they all? I can identify a few:

Nightcrawler :: Popeye
Lockheed :: The Jeep
Kitty Pryde :: Olive Oyl
Colossus :: Bluto
Wolverine :: Wimpy
Professor X :: Castor Oyl
