JB-If Kitty could take Juggernaut out would I be wrong to assume the Vision would be able to as well?

Not sure. The Vision's powers don't quite work the same as Mz Kitty's.

Just some questions for John Byrne about the Nightcrawler teleportation effect. As you've drawn it, it seems to me I can hear the short and strong BAMF (no need any sound effect). How did you arrive to it? It's been a natural thing or did you have to make many thoughts to obtain it? I mean, Do you have any own rules or follow some sequence for drawing it?

As far as I'm concerned, I'm just drawing what Dave drew.

Thank you, John. I'll do a little search following that track.

Amazing in all the ways mentioned.

Big fan of Cyclops. Never gets tired seeing him in that pose.

Congrats to the commissioner.

That leg just anchors the whole thing, doesn't it?
Bravo.

I like the big leg. That leg, with Nightcrawler in front, is probably my favourite bit.

There is a lot of fun in the size of the Sentinels and the big boot dwarfing Nightcrawling really brings home the bacon. Love that BAMF explosion as well. Excellent rendition of both that and Nightcrawler.

Amazing!  I love this piece.  So many good things.  Highlight is seeing Colossus & Cyclops in action. I missed Havok the first few looks.  Great work JB.

A 6 issue mini series cross over event in one fantastic image. I agree with the comments from Joe Smith and Peter Martin that the placement of foot/lower leg of the Sentinel makes a real difference. It seems to add a great deal of depth to the scene. An outstanding commission.

As has already been well said - truly outstanding ...

Curious, though - The Vision's powers don't quite work the same as Mz Kitty's. Without wanting to seem too fanboy-ish ( god forbid ), what's your view of the difference, JB ?

According to OHOTMU, the unique nature of the Vision's cellular structure allows him to "interface" with other dimensions, one manifestation of which is that he can walk thru walls, like a ghost.*

Kitty, on the other hand (when her power is properly portrayed) dampens the attraction between her own atoms/molecules and those around her, allowing them to pass thru each other, more of less like passing the fingers of one hand between the fingers of the other.

* Mark Gruenwald was obsessed with parallel universes. They were his go-to solution for explaining people's powers in OHOTMU, even if so doing contradicted what already known. So much so, that in the OHOTMU style bios of Marvel staffer's, Elliot Brown parodied Mark's obsession by noting that he, Elliot, was not in fact going bald, but that his hair was being translated into a parallel "hair dimension."

There are a few differences between the Vision's and Kitty's powers...

The Vision can only desolidify himself, his costume, and (rarely) something contained in his costume (e.g., a serum contained in part of his cape.) Kitty can desolidify whatever she can touch (or possibly even a chain effect - she's touching Cyclops, who's touching Storm, and they all are desolid.)

The Vision can fly. Kitty walks on air.

Kitty's phasing disrupts electronics (although it's unclear if this is voluntary or not.) The Vision's phasing can affect anything, but it seems to be a physical disruption, not energy based.

The Vision seems able to phase through his own body, and I don't think Kitty can do that.

Kitty's phasing still requires interaction with the real world, e.g., atmosphere and gravity. The Vision, as noted, can fly, and I don't know if he needs to breathe or not, but we've seen him exist for extended periods in outer space.

Which leads one to wonder; in a battle, which would win? Kitty disrupting the Vision, or vice versa? Not that I'm a big fan of super heroes fighting each other, but it might be interesting.

If Kitty snuck up on the Vision and stuck her hand thru some of those clearly mechanical parts seen in "Journey to the Center of the Android," she could probably mess him up. If, on the other hand, his power really is based on interfacing with parallel dimensions, if he saw her coming, he could become intangible and her power would not affect him. He could, tho, probably stick his arm thru her heart in that charming way he has, and down she'd go.

(One of the curious aspects of Kitty's power, as I envisioned [ahem] it is that she is not truly intangible when using it.)

Another fantastic commission. This is the place where I come to see Marvel and DC characters depicted the way they should be and this X-Men commission is no exception.

I dont know how you do it...So much comotion and action and way more detail then anyone out there today and its so clear and flows like music...Every character has his or her own place with their own story of the moment...and yet the problem I have with the art of today is that most times in an atempt of this magnitude everything gets lost muddy and confused...Is it your Placemnt?
