PHOTOS: The Best of the Homoerotic 'Cherik' X-Men Fan Art

From the sexy to the sweet, we’ve collected some of the best homoerotic fan art of X-Men actors James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as Charles Xavier and Erik 'Magneto' Lehnsherr to celebrate the upcoming release of X-Men: Days of Future Past.



With characters who are ostracized by society because of the way they were born, Marvel’s X-Men is frequently heralded as one of the greatest LGBT allegories of the superhero genre. Couple that with the fact that James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have attracted a rabid fan base since the handsome actors first stepped into the roles of the Charles Xavier and Magneto in 2011’s X-Men: First Class, and it was only a matter of time before their following began to express itself — in some interesting ways.

In the months leading up to this Friday’s release of the latest instalment in Marvel’s mutant movie franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past, fans have created a flood of artwork depicting McAvoy and Fassbender in a variety of homoerotic situations ranging from the sexy to the sweet. The actors were actually asked about it during a recent interview together on Graham Norton's show (watch the clip on the last page). 

Take a look at the collection of art we’ve pulled together celebrating some of the best of the Cherik (Charles and Erik) phenomenon floating around the interwebs.
