26 x-men: first class and x1-x3 icons (charles xavier for round fourteen at 20inspirations)
As soon as I saw the theme for this round, I knew I had to do Charles Xavier. We see him in four films which, for the most part, cover his entire life. (I know that First Class doesn't quite match up canon-wise with X1-X3, but hey, isn't that traditional in comics?) The first ten are First Class because I felt like that movie focused on his character the most. In the others, his role is mostly to use Cerebro, for good or ill, and the icons kind of reflect that. I also tried to cover, to some extent, how his life revolved around his relationship with others (Raven and Magneto, primarily, but also Jean Grey, who ultimately takes his life). The last icon was my attempt at thinking about Charles' death – that it happens and that it's implied in X3 that he jumped into another body when his own was destroyed. I used the image of a young Charles laughing to show that he really doesn't die – that he's reborn (both by First Class existing and whirling into a large fandom, and jumping into another body). Hopefully that makes some kind of sense. :p Thus concludes my longest explanation ever for icons!

notes: - it would be really appreciated if you commented, and let me know which icon(s) you take - it lets me know what you like. :) - if you want something slightly different (no text or different text, different wallpaper size, etc.), feel free to ask - I'll do it if I can. - resources.
