From TV to comics to the big screen, the X-Men have remained one of Marvel's most beloved properties for years. But even though they've never quite gone away (in fact, they're back in theaters this month with X-Men: Apocalypse), many a '90s kid still pines for the X-Men of their youth.
Enter Marvel Comics' X-Men '92 series, which takes places in the classic X-Men '90s continuity (yes, this means Wolverine looks just like you remember him from the Fox Kids TV series). In the upcoming Issue #6 (August), Professor X's band of misfits meets another when the Flaming Lips visit the X-Men universe. Today (May 11) Billboard is excited to debut the cover of that issue, which features Wolverine slashing Sentinels while Wayne Coyne looks on quizzically.
"Being in an X-Men comic where they (the X-Men themselves) actually run security at one of our shows... I should have written a song about that," Coyne says. "I mean... before it really happened."
