If You Can’t Give Students Zero, Give Them 1 or 0.1 Per Cent

290 X-men Movies Wallpapers (1024×768 pixels)

These wallpapers are from the X-men movies before X-men First Class, for which there aren’t a lot of graphics to work with yet. I’ll post those separately when there are more. Most of these wallpapers are also available in other sizes and purposes, if this isn’t the size you want your X-men wallpapers in or wish to get them for your other phones, monitors and for printing.

Of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site, I have to say this has been my favourite. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.
