If mixing monsters from the mind of H.R. Giger with a beloved Christian holiday is wrong, WE DON'T WANT TO BE RIGHT.
We have absolutely no clue where this artwork comes from, but one can only presume that some confused Sunday school class somewhere is learning that the Three Wise Men once battled the Sinister Six and that Lazarus had a mutant healing factor.

Plague-ridden mutants try to talk Charlton Heston to death in The Omega Man, the template for I Am Legend, which opens today.
