    Default Getting Inside The Heads Of The X-Men Today



    Want to get insiden the head oif your favourite characters? It's getting easier and easier. You can do it with pure telepathy, as Jean Grey discovers in All-New X-Men, out today.



    Kid Apocalypse, in Wolverine & The X-Men, has the aid of some revelatory mirrors to show his desire to be, well, Superman it seems. Including a swipe file from the cover of Action Comics #1.



    X-Men Legacy is nothing but this with Legion doing his best impersonation of a Dan Clowes drawing and he cycles through his various personalities.



    We get a first person perspective viewpoint of the world from Deadpool in Thunderbolts which suddenly makes the character make a lot more sense.



    While Cable And X-Force does this... well... just a little too literally for my liking.

    Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London.

    Seems about right. The joke of his whole VR simulation upbringing that we were shown in Uncanny X-Force was that it was based on Superman's, with Fantomex playing Pa Kent.

    After decades of Marvel trying to make its own Superman be it Hyperion or Sentry, it looks like Remender and Aaron might be doing one competently and I think he might be my favorite new X-kid

    Action Comics #1 isn't the only swipe file of course. All the mirrors are iconic poses, the one to the far right is the cover to All Star Superman where he's sitting on a cloud. It's just a lot more close up on his face.
