What If The X-Men Came From Medieval Times

Artist Nate Hallinan has cast the X-Men as medieval characters in a fan fiction series entitled “The Order of the X”.

1. Order of the X

“A group of ‘gifted’ individuals in the service of Lord Charles Xavier. The Order provides sanctuary and protection to individuals outcast by society due to their innate abnormalities. These people are often miss-labeled as monsters, demons, warlocks and witches. Only those who are accepting of the ‘gifted’ are welcome to the realm of Lord Xavier.” source

Henrick McCoy as Beast

“Henrick’s mind is a fierce as his appearance for he is a scholar of many disciplines. Henrick was coined the name “Beast” as a more ironic term of endearment. He is loved by his peers and is one of most wise and trusted members of Xavier’s council.” source

Ororo as the Stormbringer

“As a young adult, Xavier met Ororo as a child on one of his quests. He caught her trying to steal his coin purse with his mind, but when he did, he saw her potential. He offered her a home where she would never have to steal again. Henrick McCoy took her in as one of his apprentices.

Ororo eventually developed the ability to manipulate weather. For obvious reasons, she gained the name Stormbringer. Many presume that she is a witch from a distant land, even worse, some even fear that she has control of Xavier’s mind with a spell. Unwavering to these rumors, Xavier considers Ororo as one of his most trusted counselors.” source

Kyrt V’wagnyr as Nightcrawler

“Kyrt never knew his real parents. He was found by a band of elves as an infant. They were on a twilight march, celebrating the new moon, when they found him crawling next to his basket on a riverbank. They happily adopted him seeing that he was part elf. His enchanting midnight appearance and mysterious abilities makes him highly regarded among elves. Magic runs deep in the race of elves but Kyrt’s abilities are more potent than most.

Kyrt joined The Order of X because he, being different himself, strongly believes in their quest. Additionally, Xavier’s family has always been friends of the elves. Kyrt also hopes that one day he might find answers to his past and discover who his parents are.” source

“The mountain of metal; Colossus. His father was a blacksmith and eventually apprenticed him in the family trade. Hard labor made Peter strong but he was always larger than the other kids. His size and strength even made certain people nervous. Others even rumored that it was ‘unnatural.’” source

“Phoenix is a name that the Lady Grey eventually earned in battle. With Jean’s telepathic and telekinetic abilities, she became formidable archer. Flying further and surer than anyone else’s, her arrows never miss their target. When they are lit afire; they burn brighter and some say they are guided by a phoenix. It didn’t help that her hair was also a fiery red.” source

“Scott has the ability to emit a destructive beam from his eyes. He has learned, for the most part, to live without his sight. He wears a protective blindfold that keeps him from opening his eyes as well as from being easily removed. Needing to cover his eyes all time, people have spread rumors that he is actually a cyclops with a magical destructive eye. False as this may be, he enjoys being called Cyclops; striking fear in his enemies.” source

“He is the lord and founder of The Order of X. Charles developed the abilities to read, control, and influence human minds. He formed The Order because he saw and felt the injustice happening to the ‘gifted’ people around him. Understanding his role he felt that it was his noble duty to protect these people.”
