If X-Men had been made in the 1950s....

This image, which is circulating on social media, is a very cool look at what an X-Men movie made in the 1950s would look like. And don't remind us that the X-Men didn't debut until the 1960s, we are well aware of that. Just roll with it.

Alec Guinness is an inspired choice to play Professor X, as is Grace Kelly as Jean Grey. Chuck Connors (aka "The Rifleman") is an interesting choice for Wolverine, as we would prefer switching places with James Dean or Marlon Brando.

We're not sure who the artist is, but if you know, tell us so we can give them credit!
