Have you ever wished you could fuse your favorite superheroes with a completely different setting? X-Men have always been considered part of a futuristic world, especially after Days of Future Past where the mutants are being hunted by these evil transforming robots. However, it never occurred to me how at home the mutants could be in a more fantasy, mythical world until this amazing fan art came to light.

Thanks to Nate Hallinan, a concept artist who has worked on films like Big Hero 6 and The Maze Runner, we are able to see what the X-Men would look like if they were part of a medieval, magical world where they would still be persecuted for their powers and people’s fearful misconception of them. In a much more uncivilized world, the mutants must hide and protect each other by joining The Order of the X led by Lord Charles Xavier.

For every character Hallinan has created an alternate back story that suits their alternate fantastical world. Each of them is often misidentified as creatures that used to be burned at the stake like witches. Others are perceived as monsters or demons but overall, the X-Men themes of persecution, prejudice and alienation go perfectly with this setting and perhaps, even more epic than before.
