“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

CLASSIC X_90 minutes

Does anyone remember how Iceman looked originally? He was this mushy man with black/blue and yellow boots. I mean, he can turn every part of his body into a substance with the consistency and texture of oatmeal except his boots? Xavier is the most powerful mind on Earth, but his brain can't wrap around that bit of science and design shoes that change too? Or maybe it was Iceman's preference. Maybe he thinks the team won't recognize him as a member unless he sported the official X-Men colors. Damn 'muties' and their dress codes.
