'80s X-Men characters come to life in rocking music video

Comics may be a silent medium, but that hasn't stopped the X-Men franchise from adding a number of musical mutants into their canon. Fortunately the filmmakers from Superhero Pop are determined to give rocking characters like Dazzler and Lila Cheney a voice -- literally. After giving Dazzler her own music video last year, intergalactic thief and bad influence Lila Cheney has been given a turn behind the microphone. And yes, it both rocks and squeezes in a ton of appearances from lesser-known X-characters.

In addition to a spot-on Lila Cheney (performed by singer Sage Montclair in full '80s Joan Jett glory) and Dazzler (Gentry Roth) on backing vocals, the fan-made music video features the complete nine-person New Mutants roster (that's Cannonball, Sunspot, Mirage, Karma, Wolfsbane, Magma, Magik, Cypher and Warlock), the team's dance instructor Stevie Hunter (complete with a shout-out to Kitty Pryde) and Strong Guy. Yes, Strong Guy. If you're a fan of the X-Men and don't mind having a super catchy song stuck in your head for the rest of the day, then "I Will Steal Your Heart!" is necessary viewing.
