We just named our VexRobotics Vexmen team Polaris. Each of the 35 Vex Robotics teams in Brandywine Robotics is named after an X-men. This is an amazing piece of art! Would you mind if we used part of the image on our robot? www.vexmen.com/about/ :D (Big Grin)

I love Steranko, the X-Men and especially Havok & Polaris (my faves). You did them all justice, this is wonderful. I discovered your work in the defunct Wizard magazine in some of your feature articles. Do you have any Havok pics?

Great stuff! I always loved how Steranko used the color green in the original cover and you did it great here. I kind of think it was mistake to have 2 super chicks with the same color costume. Marvel Girl's costume was also green!

Gorgeous, Mike, and my only feedback is that Cyclops and Beast are in the wrong costumes.

I can certainly understand the error; the colors on the original make it hard to see, but the costumes on this cover are the revised suits they got in X-Men #39

you are correct! Well, like Joe E. Brown says at the end of that movie, "Nobody's perfect."

Great stuff. I like the original, too. (I looked it up.)

You've got a wonderful style. Kinda golden/silver age of illustration. Hyper-Kinetic color. There a great feeling of awe like the X-men are statues frozen in a moment of action.

Thanks for posting.
