Wish This Was Real | Matthew Humphreys’ X-Men

I want an X-Men cartoon featuring Matthew Humphrey’s X-Men designs so bad. Especially if it features Rogue giving Gambit the brush-off like she does in this drawing. Heck, all of Humphrey’s X-Men have tons of personality just begging to be realized on the screen. Or maybe it’s me doing the begging. ‘Cause it makes me sad in my soul that I can’t watch this version of these characters on TV. Click through to see Kitty Pryde and Jubilee and see if you don’t feel the same way.



I saw this on Comics Alliance the other day, and I really hope that Disney/Marvel gives this guy a look when they revisit the X-Men. I actually wouldn’t mind if they gave him free reign to design the Marvel Animated Universe going forward the way that Bourassa and Timm did for DC.

Seeing these designs turned into budget TV animation wouldn’t thrill me nearly as much as comics drawn by Humphreys himself.

I thought the same thing. It’s unfortunately a little too particular for people that never read the 80s comics, but that cast has a pretty perfect balance. And those designs are just the very best. SHORT Wolverine with the brown suit and pervy Deadpool are the best looks those characters have had in like 20 years.

someone should hire him right now….whether Disney XD or cartoon network or G4…hell Syfy or Spike…these character designs are great. A real mix of old and new characters and I luv how their personalities come through in each character…

I wouldn’t say DP was pervy in this shot – I think he was getting a pic of EVERYONE above him. Y’know, cuz they are all pretty neat! lol

And while I would LOVE an X-Men cartoon with these designs (it’s about time we had another series, and godwilling it actually lasts more than one season), I’d settle for a Humphrey drawn X-Men comic set in his own idealized universe.

@Kurt: Word.

Haha these are great! Wolverine looks brilliant as well.

Put him on an arc of Wolverine and the X-Men. He’s perfect for that comic!

Deadpool is obviously being pervy!

They look great! I would love to see a new cartoon on these designs. Who is the guy at the bottom with the white streak?? Is that X-Man??

And no Cyclops?? I would also love to see his take on Banshee (Sean) ;)
