Re-Casting X-Men With Athletes Sports Stars

Athletes and Sports Stars Who Could be X-Men

X-Men Logo Poster

With all the X-Men craze these days, we thought it'd be a good idea to have a little fun re-casting some of the series' most famous characters with sports stars. Some of these sports figures could actually step in a play the role of their X-Men characters, while others would be limited to a stunt double role. Enjoy!

JJ Watt: Beast

JJ Watt: Beast

JJ Watt Beast X-Men

Both of these guys are gentle, intelligent “beasts” who can throw their weight around when needed. Both Beast and Watt stay cool and calm while kicking butt, but they can get angry and make everyone around them afraid when need be.

Adam Silver: Professor Xavier

Adam Silver Professor Xavier X-Men

Adam Silver: Professor Xavier

Adam Silver Professor Xavier X-Men

Like Proffesor X, Silver is a smart, well-spoken leader who isn’t afraid to make the unpopular decision if it’s for the good of the organization. These two guys are an easy match because of those qualities alone. Plus, they have the same hairstyle.

Ronda Rousey: Mystique

Ronda Rousey Mystique X-Men

Ronda Rousey: Mystique

Ronda Rousey Mystique X-Men

These two ladies are very similar; they’re both deceivingly good looking and they both pack a very mean punch to go along with their wild side. Just when you’re about to develop a crush for them, they do something crazy that makes you kind of afraid and kind of turned on at the same time.

Phil Jackson: Magneto

Phil Jackson Magneto X-Men

Phil Jackson: Magneto

Phil Jackson Magneto X-Men

These are two older, well-respected leaders who do things their way and don’t care what anyone else thinks. Like Magneto, Jackson can be very manipulative in subtle ways to get things to go the way he wants them.

Skylar Diggins: Storm

Skylar Diggins Storm X-Men

Skylar Diggins: Storm

Skylar Diggins Storm X-Men

Both of these lovely ladies have incredible skin tone, they’re both really talented and they’re both quiet until they need to get the blood flowing. When that happens, watch out!

CM Punk: Wolverine

CM Punk Wolverine X-Men

CM Punk: Wolverine

CM Punk Wolverine X-Men

Besides the fact they look eerily similar when CM Punk rocks the mutton chops, he also is very rough around the edges and does things his way, although he often means well. Plus, both men are big-time crowd favorites in their respective arenas.

Zack Greinke: Cyclops

Zack Greinke Cyclops X-Men

Zack Greinke: Cyclops

Zack Greinke Cyclops X-Men

Just like Cyclops, Zack Greinke can be underrated at times and he can also be a dork every now and then. However, no one can deny the talent of either one, although both can be immature at times despite their known intelligence. Really an easy match if you think about it.

Caroline Wozniacki: Rogue

Caroline Wozniacki Rogue X-Men

Caroline Wozniacki: Rogue

Caroline Wozniacki Rogue X-Men

Just like Rogue, Wozniacki is deceptively good-looking and incredibly powerful, although she’s sometimes afraid to use her talents. In the same way Rogue quietly plays a big part in the X-Men saga, Wozniacki is quietly becoming a dominant force in the women’s tennis world.

Bobby Ryan: Quicksilver

Bobby Ryan Quicksilver

Bobby Ryan: Quicksilver

Bobby Ryan Quicksilver

This one is a perfect match; both Bobby Ryan and Quicksilver are both really fast and can be playful in an almost childlike manner. They are both superstars in their own right, but don’t get as much credit as their star counterparts.

Lindsey Vonn: Emma Frost

Lindsey Vonn Emma Frost

Lindsey Vonn: Emma Frost

Lindsey Vonn Emma Frost

Emma Frost is a villain, but she has a conscience and she’s incredibly loyal, both positive traits. That means she’s a good girl with a bad streak. And she’s also really good-looking. Who better to play that role than Lindsey Vonn? She’s a total hottie and was a crowd favorite before getting together with Tiger Woods. Good, “bad” and then good again all while looking smoking hot in the process. Easy match.

Shawn Merriman: Sabretooth

Shawn-Merriman-Sabretooth

Shawn Merriman: Sabretooth

Shawn-Merriman-Sabretooth

This one is such a great match it’s eerie. Sabretooth is a very animalistic character with a temper to go along with an incredible grudge against Wolverine. Shawn Merriman matches all of those characteristics AND he has a grudge against CM Punk, who we cast as Wolverine. Eerily perfect, right?

Maria Sharapova: Jean Grey

Maria Sharapova Jean Grey

Maria Sharapova: Jean Grey

Maria Sharapova Jean Grey

Both of these lovely ladies are very intelligent and good at what they do, although they often get more attention because of their looks. They are incredibly gentle most of the time, but when they get upset, watch out because they go nuts. That’s rare for both of them, and it’s kinda sexy when it happens.

Joba Chamberlain: Juggernaut

Joba Chamberlain Juggernaut

Joba Chamberlain: Juggernaut

Joba Chamberlain Juggernaut

Like Juggernaut, Joba Chamberlain doesn’t have much of a brain; he’s only useful because he’s big and strong. In fact, he often says just downright stupid things that make you scratch your head, and even dislike him. Easy match for an idiot villainous character.
