Uncanned X-Pun

Why can't the X-Men use Twitter?

A whole heapin' lot of X-Men

Because you're limited to 140 characters.

I've been holding onto that one at least since the X-Men: First Class movie came out.

And if anyone knows a better graphic to run here than the above stuffed-but-not-stuffed-enough shot that looks to have been drawn by Carlos Pacheco (inker, colorist, and source unknown), they're more than welcome to tip me off to it.

VW: Polatica

I'll leave this one in your capable hands.

Polatica — The space cruiser from Santa's favorite sci-fi show, Battlestar: Polatica, which tells how the elves arrived from a distant planet to settle at his workshop in the North Pole.

Because typing isn't part of the Xavier Institute curriculum.

Because Twitter is actually a sentient mutant, and to tweet would be a severe violation of his rights as an individual.

Because when you're speaking Claremontian dialogue, 140 characters just isn't enough.

Not that it matters much now, but there's a David Finch cover to X-Men (vol. 2) #200 that features nearly every X-Man.

I'm not a huge fan of Finch's work, but it is pretty close to complete.

Lookit the waist on Phoenix, by the way! It's super-tiny, especially compared to the bazooms she's packin'. Still not as hot as Famke Janssen...
