X marks the spot with these Adventure Time/X-Men mashups

You don't have to squint too hard to see parallels between the wildly popular animated series Adventure Time and the long-running Marvel comic franchise turned blockbuster film series X-Men.

Adventure Time is about a boy named Finn and his best friend/magical dog Jake who live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo, where they go on adventures and help those in need. X-Men is about a group of super-powered people who help the very world that hates and fears them while occasionally battling Apocalypse. The parallels are there -- squint harder.

Artist Kate Goodrich understands: She's drawn a delightful series of Adventure Time/X-Men mashups, giving us Finn as Cyclops, Jake as Wolverine, Marceline as Psylocke, BMO as Colossus, Ice King as Magneto, Flame Princess as Phoenix, and more. See some of the illustrations below, and the rest on Goodrich's website.
