This looks incredibly dumb to me, but I decided to post it anyway. It’s a teaser for the X-Men: First to Last bit that will be coming out in May. Obviously it’s to support the movie X-Men: First Class, but being that that train wreck only has 1 out of the 5 original First Class Members I don’t quite get how this is related. Thoughts?

Whilst shopping for candles, the Rogues came upon a “Fireside” candle. We immediately decided it smelled like Gambit. How do we know that you ask – Don’t ask, just let it happen. This led us to discuss what we think the X-Men would smell like. Below are some of our thoughts…. what do you think your favorite comic book characters would smell like?
Professor X – Mothballs and Wig Glue
Cyclops – Axe and a Fraternity House
Jean Grey – Plain-as-can-be Ivory Soap and Breck Shampoo
Wolverine – Naturally Occurring Old Spice (the man your man wants to smell like), Woods and Cigar Smoke
Storm – Outside, right before it rains
Rogue – Magnolias and Sass
Gambit – Spices, Bourbon, Cigarettes and Bad Decisions
Beast – Doggie Shampoo
Emma Frost – Better than you, that’s all you need to know, darlings
Nightcrawler – Sulfer and Brimstone
Kitty Pryde – Cucumber Melon body wash from Bath and Body Works
Jubilee – Bubblegum
Angel – Rich Mahogany and Money
Magneto – Pantene Pro-V (smell THIS, Charles)
Sabretooth – Raw Animal Hides
Toad – Flies and Stickiness
Pyro – Matches
Quicksilver – Shame and Disappointment
Scarlet Witch – PMS
Teon (one of the Five Lights) – Flea Powder and Urine
Deadpool – Gun Powder and Tacos/Chimichangas
R2 and I found this online the other day on a forum talking about how Fox desperately wants The werewolf kid from Twilight in X-Men. This is my worst nightmare. Unfortunately stupid Fox may be making it come true. Look at your own risk….
Ben Walker, who was formerly set to play Beast/Hank McCoy until Fox went back on his offer, has signed up for another stint on Broadway and will no longer be available for X-Men: First Class. In a bigger tragedy, sources say that Fox did NOT let Ben go due to what fans wanted with age, but due to THE POPULARITY OF TWILIGHT. They’ve supposedly even gone as far as to check Taylor Lautner’s availability and want the X-Men to basically be the X-Boys. And with that, I quit this b*tch. TRAGEDY.
In another rumor, an obscure mutant named Willow from X-Nation 2009 is rumored to be in X-Men: First Class. But who cares anymore, am I right?
Latest reports are saying that Fox has fired Benjamin Walker, who was set to play Beast, because he’s “too old” being that their Xavier and Magneto are only 31 and 33. No sh*t, Fox. That’s why your young Xavier and Magneto should’ve been more like 40, you morons. If you want to guess that Xavier and Magneto are around 55 in the comics while the X-Men seem to be around 30 (this is a loose guess, but you know, give or take), then if you rewind 15 years your Xavier and Magneto will still be a good 20-25 years older than these teenagers. Sigh. And if you’re going with the movie consistency then Charles and Eric are 70 while the X-men are around 35! An even bigger gap – Would it kill these people to pick up a comic book? Or even re-watch their own movies? (1 and 2 of course, not that Last Stand crap). I digress, rumors are also stating that the rest of the people they’ve screen tested are not living up to Benjamin’s potential, so who knows if they’ll just end up re-hiring him. More to come.
