We are all familiar of Marvel’s X-men. But for those who don’t, X-men is a fictional team of mutant superheroes that protect the world and their fellow mutants from anti-mutant regimes. Commonly known for their superhuman abilities and futuristic costumes; today you’ll see these mutant characters redesigned in a different time; a time of knights and castles; the time of medieval era.

The creative artist behind these idealistic character designs is California-base artist Nate Hallinan. He conceptualized X-men characters in somewhat medieval times in which he calls The Order of X. Below are some of his character designs that were superiorly made. Scroll down and observe on some of his meticulous artworks. Come, take a peek, and enjoy!

Lord Charles Xavier

“Jean comes from a noble family of Grey. She was a bit of a tomboy growing up.

Lord Xavier offered her parents an opportunity to provide her with guidance and protection…”

Cyclops – Scott Summers

The day Scott’s ability manifested he accidentally destroyed several buildings and set fire to half the village…” “…Xavier, perceiving the trouble, quickly dispatched members from his order to rescue Scott.”

Colossus – Peter Rasputin

Beast – Henrick McCoy

Henrick’s mind is as fierce as his appearance. Henrick was given the name “Beast” as an ironic term of endearment. He is loved by his peers and is one of most wise and trusted members of Xavier’s council.”
