Mulder and Scully were cool as could be on the X-Files. Here's how we'd respond to monsters as opposed to how they did.

At the recent Television Critics Association event, Fox announced that there have been talks about re-creating the hit series that ran from 1993 to 2002. We're not just talking a rumor here, either. Apparently, the network has been chatting with original series creator Chris Carter about a reboot.

All this discussion about remaking the series got us thinking about just how awesome and cool Mulder and Scully were on the show. Seriously, with all of the wacky crap they had to deal with, they both reacted to it much better than we mere mortals ever would have.

Here are some examples of how much cooler Mulder and Scully are compared to the rest of the human race.
