Between the cosplay communities such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum, the flurry of “photo parades” that accompany virtually every comics or genre convention article, and the countless galleries provided by cosplayers and cosplay photographers alike, we are bound to encounter real-life interpretations of our favorite heroes and villains.

With the release of X-Men: First Class this Friday (June 3rd), let’s launch our first Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) with the X-Men!
