ArkAngel: There is no reason Magneto shouldn't have been Vader


that would make Quicksilver Luke and Scarlet Witch Leia. Vision would end up as Han. Beast could still be Chewie though. Who would be the Emperor, Sinister?

The X-Men in Star Wars would be most illogical.

If you go with ultimate continuity, quicksilver is used to making out with his sister...

Yeah, it was way better when you had to feel alone and isolated and that no one understood your passion for fantasy/sci-fi.

Only thing I'll say is that Gambit Solo has his hand on Rogue Organa's skin. That doesn't work. He would die. Other than that, it's a very nice picture.

Right... one of the (if not THE) biggest and most successful crossover franchises of all-time and suddenly it's "trendy."

Deal with it.

The submariner is technically a mutant and fits the role.

Oh and let's have multiple man fill out the storm trooper ranks. Sebastian Shaw can be Grand Moff Tarkin. Where does Cable fit in?

Uh...what is? Star wars? Not a crossover. Star trek? Ditto. X-men? I guess, maybe, if you define it broadly enough in relation to comics, since they're bizarre in continuity.

As long as he gets to keep the nothing-but-a-green-Speedo attire. Covering that body is a crime.

Multiple Man as stormtroopers works best if he's also Jango and Boba. Cable... hmm... Jacen Solo?

I meant crossover in terms of media. The Star Wars Universe spans across films, television, books, comic books, toys, vidja games, throw blankets, electronic toothbrushes, cardboard cutouts, undergarments (and overgarments,) commemorative plates commissioned by the Franklin Mint, collectible spoons and sewing thimbles, glow-in-the-dark condoms, lightsaber dildos, furniture, housewares, toilet bowl seat covers, aquarium decorations and... hey guys, anything I'm missing?!?

Basically, there is no aspect of modern culture that Star Wars has not touched at this point. Therefore, saying that Star Wars is getting too trendy tells me you must have been living under a rock since at least 1983.

Shiat, how come they never took a mutant restraining collar and have beast turn it into a bracelet for rogue? she could take it off any time she needed.

I thought about that one after I posted. I think the movies made me blot it out of my mind. They should have stuck to the comic storyline.
