Oh Jeebus, Now One Direction Want to Be the X-Men



From the people who brought you the atrocity of the Honey Boo Boo comic comes a tribute cover to Marvel’s favorite mutants, featuring annoying boy band One Direction.

Serious question: is there ANY crossover between fans of One Direction and X-Men? Like, at all? This seems to me the equivalent of creating a Barbie doll that’s a tribute to Glenn Danzig. Boy bands are antithetical to comic-book heroes.

One Direction, if you wonder why you’re getting grief from the likes of me, let me paraphrase your most famous lyrics:

You don’t know you’re terrible. That’s what makes you terrible.
