Look, sometimes, when you’re unemployed and have a lot of time on your hands, you finally succumb to Stefanie’s evil masterplan and watch five seasons of Grey’s Anatomy in a ridiculously short amount of time. Combine that with a healthy love for comics, a chat full of crazy friends (ie. all the other PCRers) and you get…
Grey’s Anatomy, X-MEN STYLE!
Which of our favorite mutants are roaming the Seattle Grace halls? Keep on reading to find out!
Meredith Grey: Jean Grey
The obvious choice for the title role. From cheating (sort of) boyfriends/husbands to coming back from the dead, they’ve got more in common than you’d think. Meredith likes to say she’s all dark and twisty inside, Jean’s got the Phoenix.
Cristina Yang: Storm
Storm may not be the hard-ass, unfeeling robot Cristina’s often accused of being, but they’re both incredibly strong, independent women who know how to reach for and get to the top. Falling for the head of cardio-thoracic surgery, falling for the King of Wakanda, it’s all the same.
Izzie Stevens: Kitty Pryde
Kitty’s been the baby of the group for years, and in some ways Izzie is as well. She has to constantly be reminded (much like the way Wolverine “mentors” Kitty) not to get too close to patients, she took six years to complete med school instead of four, and, like Kitty, she’s grown into a woman with her own identity and purpose with the Clinic. But the crazy, that’s all Izzie.
Alex Karev: Colossus
Okay, so this one is kind of a stretch because Colossus isn’t a colossal (heh) jackass, but it works if Izzie is Kitty. You could also say Alex isn’t quite the jackass he used to be – he’s still an ass, but he’s got a heart of gold. Dare I say his way of protecting himself emotionally is the same as Colossus going to metal form to protect himself? Yes, of course I dare. Because I just wrote it.
George O’Malley: Iceman
Both George and Bobby were sort of the goofy, loveable ones at the start. Bobby looked like a snowman, George was the adorable best friend and comic relief. But both have grown into fine men, having learned how to navigate life with dignity. And yeah, still the comic relief, but you love them for it.
Lexie Grey: Jubilee
Another young intern, another young X-Man. Lexie’s enthusiasm for being at Seattle Grace is almost akin to Jubilee’s fireworks. Okay, yeah, I’m stretching it.
Miranda Bailey: Wolverine
You are goddamn right I made this match up. Come on! They’re both short and have an in your face, take no prisoners way of teaching. Even when you know they have a soft spot for their charges, you wouldn’t want to mess with them. Miranda Bailey is the best at what she does, and what she does is shank a bitch who tries to steal her surgeries. Of course, this leads us into…
Tucker Bailey: X-23
You can’t even deny it.
Callie Torres: Rogue
Both Callie and Rogue are pretty much the very definition of sassy, hot, badass chicks.
Derek Shepherd: Cyclops
Not only did they both cheat (sort of) on their girlfriends/wives, they’re both sometimes super douchey- but we love them anyway.
Preston Burke: Beast
There’s a quiet intelligence and wisdom Burke seems to have (even when he’s being douchier than Shepherd) that reminds me a lot of McCoy.
Addison Montgomery: Emma Frost
Much like Emma, Addison was The Enemy at first, taking The Man away from Grey, but she eventually grew to become one of SGH’s own, the way Emma is now an X-Man. And, you know, they’re hot.
Mark Sloan: Gambit
Gambit isn’t quite the manwhore McSteamy is, but they both have an effortless sexuality that have women falling all over themselves. They’re both my favorites from each canon, so I’m working with a little bias here. Just a tiny one.
Erica Hahn: Psylocke
So yeah, I have no real reason for this, other than the fact that I think Erica is a badass.
Owen Hunt: Banshee
They’re redheads, they’re badasses, they’ve got tortured pasts and are kind of intense. Stefanie once did a Generation X casting picspam and Kevin McKidd was her choice for Banshee as well. Obviously this means I’m right.
Arizona Robbins: Dazzler
Arizona had me at the rollersneaks, and something about them screams Dazzler to me. I don’t know! I just love them.
Chief Webber: Professor X
Last but not least, the obvious choice. Both men would do anything for their dream/hospital, including being giant jerkfaces to the people who look up to and love them. One day Shepherd is going to be Chief of Surgery and then where will you be, Chief? Out on your ass, just like Scott did Xavier. Be nice.
There it is. Agree? Disagree? Have other choices? Want to tell me I’ve taken a little to much crack?
