I've been talking with friends about how great it would be to see a run of X-Men comics set when the series began in 1963, focusing on the assassination of JFK and the whole civil rights movement seen through the allegory of mutants like the X-Men. We figured a great villain for the first story arch would be Nimrod, a precursor to the Sentinels. It's a cool challenge, trying to get that 60s robot feel, while keeping him fairly scary looking. To re-cap: my last two posts have been about Dungeons and Dragons and the X-Men.
