"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Comic Books, Film
X-Men can’t live on blue-and-white jumpsuits alone. Artist Tom Kennedy has illustrated a dozen of the X-Men’s women members in his unofficial “Street Style” print, featuring fashionable civilian looks for Jean Grey, Storm, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Polaris, Mystique, Rogue, Dazzler, Psylocke, Emma Frost, X-23 and Magik.
There are fun details thrown in there — X-23, Marvel’s current Wolverine and a clone of the original, wears a Wolverine t-shirt; Kitty Pryde is holding a dragon-training book. Plenty of the outfits in the print are reminiscent of the respective character’s superhero duds, but Jubilee’s look appears to be just about identical to her classic outfit — which makes sense, given that she was always pretty casual from the start. And, for reasons not immediately obvious, Mystique’s going-out top is apparently no top at all.
This isn’t the only time Kennedy has taken inspiration from Marvel’s mutants, he also drew the ’90s X-Men team with a “robotic” bent. Here’s a look at the full “Street Style” image, which could be considered NSFW due to an illustrated blue nipple:
