Lord Xavier - The Order of X, Nate Hallinan (2D)

Title: Lord Xavier - The Order of X
Name: Nate Hallinan
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop
Submitted: 5th September 2013

The Order of X is a personal fan-fiction variation on the X-Men. I thought it would be a fun exercise to reimagine the X-Men in an alternate medieval/fantasy reality.

Lord Charles Xavier 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.

Tragically, Charles was mortally wounded in an encounter with a black dragon as a young adult. Before the dragon could kill Xavier and his soldiers, Xavier forced his mind onto the Dragon's. Not only did this stop the dragon but Xavier was able to tame it. This was the first time in history that a man was able to gain obedience over a dragon.

(Personal notes) You can see I obviously liked Patrick Stewart’s portrayal of Professor X. He's played kings in other roles and what better fit for this reinterpretation. Why fix what isn't broken? You might have guessed but the black dragon is the re-imagination of the Blackbird jet. I also had fun playing with the combination of a throne and a wheelchair; it became a character in itself. The words engraved into the back are Mutatis Mutandis.

More characters explorations from this series can be found on my FB Page.

Ah ah ah!!! That's an awesome idea!!! A bit like the opposite concept of the old 'Camelot 3000'. I just love it, so much potential! And amazing art! Keep them coming!
