George RR Martin already did this, Brand is the Professor.

That...didn't suck as much as I thought it might, actually.

I would be interested to see some more of this guy's work on this subject.

/Toddles off to browse the linked gallery from TFA.

So was it the comic genre that influenced fantasy or the other way around?  The concept of magic is easily translated into super powers.

I'd say this is more like Xmen done as D&D characters. The artwork is pretty well done though.

I liked the historical elseworlds version of Marvel called 1602. Highly recommend it!

I rather like Colossus . . .

\\ although, be fair, that should be Forge.

Way to have only white(well, and blue) characters in your line-up from a comic series emblematic of minority struggle.

Black people weren't invented until the 1700s.

This was already covered in X men volume 1 190 - 191 when Kulan Gath transforms Manhattan.


What?

Came for Kulan Gath, left feeling old.

Elseworlds? ELSEWORLDS?? Marvel's alternate universes are called What Ifs, you spaleen! Your thrice-cursed treachery will reward you naught but an early grave.


/Or possibly an indian burn.

Came for  1602 reference.  Also recommend it.

Ok, maybe I trolled a little bit there, but the name Elseworlds for alternate reality stories is one of the few things DC ever did better than Marvel. It just sounds better then What If?!?!?!?!?!one!

Yeah what happened there? DC is normally so bad at naming things but they hit that one out of the park.

According to everything I've read, it all happened at the same time. The initial codifiers of modern genre literature all happened during the pulp era in the 20s, 30s & 40s. The four big things to come out of that era were science fiction, fantasy, horror and the western. Previous to this, everything was mostly a combination of those four and the big 19th century literary popular genres: the romance, the adventure story & the mystery. Golden age comics were about everything, but Superman really did a lot to solidify the format as being an arguably science fiction oriented one. Early Superman comics even had a feature later played more frequently in the Silver Age in all comics where Superman's various powers were given faux-scientific explanations in aside panels. High fantasy was already sort of a thing previous to the pulps and golden age comics, but if you read them they are mainly mythological or historical pastiches which don't contain a lot of elements modern fantasy has until The Hobbit and Conan. Fantasy only really becomes popular again in the 1950s, which by then comics themselves are committed to the four main pulp genres they helped popularize.

"Professor X" is just Patrick Stewart from one of his Shakespeare roles.
 
2013-12-13 08:14:23 PM  
WHAR STORM, WHAR EMMA?!
 
2013-12-13 10:20:31 PM  
Think Professor X already had one
