Lessee.....He's been a mentor/"father figure" to: Kitty, Rogue, Illyana, Rachel, Karma, Jubilee, Boom-Boom, X-23, Pixie, Armor, and Dani...and maybe Magma (I don't recall how close they are in the comics, but I recall Magma admiring him, and him being protective of her, in the X-Men: Legends video games).
He's flirted and/or made out with: Storm, White Queen, Psylocke, Mystique, Dazzler, and Sage.
He's slept with: Domino (and possibly Mystique).
The only ones in this pic which I don't think he's got any sort of canon relationship with (yet) are: Polaris, Syrin/Banshee II, Lifeguard, and Danger.
Whew...and keep in mind that this is only the ladies in the pic! I'm not even gonna talk about the ones that are no longer with the X-Men (Jean, StacyX, Marrow, etc.), all the ladie's he's got in Asia (Mariko, Yukio, Tyger Tiger, etc.), the rest of the world (Spider-Woman, Elektra, Black Widow, Ms. Marvel, Valerie Cooper, etc.), and the ones from his past (Rose, Silver Fox, etc.) that he's got some sort of a connection to, or a relationship with...
At this point, it wouldn't really surprise me if it was revealed that he took Aunt May's virginity waaay back in the day ... He's like the Marvel version of Kevin Bacon; There's six degrees of separation (and usually a lot less than six) between him and damn near EVERY female in the entire Marvel universe!
Lol! Now all I can think about is a pic of 20 baby wolverines driving him crazy. I'll have to draw that some day. You gotta think... Wolvie is OLD. This is just the girls he's known recently. And he only has one kid? Really?
Lotsa baby Wolvies runnin' around and SNIKTing everything in sight?!?!? NEED TO SEE THAT PIC,PLEEEAAASSEEE!!!
After a few days of that, Wolvie will tear out all his hair, chnge his identity to Bub Daddy, and become a multi-platinum selling rap superstar. He'll be rich...until everyone finds out about the WolverAnkleBiters and he loses all his $$$ paying alimony and back child support fees.
Yeah, and I never bought the "one kid" thing either; with all the ladies he's snagged with his "animal magnetism", I figure he's sired a couple dozen lil' bubs in the last decade alone!
Matter of fact, until that god-awful storyline with some devil being Nightcrawler's dad, I always thought that there was a pretty good possibility that Kurt was his kid. There were tons of hints dropped that him an Mystique had known each other - and I mean "known" in every possible meaning of the word - for a verry looong time, since Mysti's power allows her to make herself look much, much younger than she actually is. I figured that Mysti dropped that lie about Kurt's dad being some old-timey baron or nobleman just because she didn't want to admit the truth.
Let's look at the facts, : 1)Both Kurt and Wolvie are mutants 2)Both are extremely hairy, with Kurt having so much hair, he's considered furry 3)Both have very long canine teeth 4)Both have a violent side which they fight to keep suppressed, with Kurt being able to manage it much better than Wolvie, and they have both been searching for and inner peace for many years 5)They have a unique bond, which has been usually called brotherly, but can also be viewed as a father/son relationship 6)They both got a unique ability to attract lots of ladies, despite the fact that both of them have been described a being kind of ugly 7)They both LOVE beer!
I think, if you put all those things together, along with Mysti's history with Wolvie, there is a case to be made for the POSSIBILITY of Wolvie being Kurt's dadda.
Hey,cool! I've always dug 'Crawler, too. It's funny, when I first saw him in the comics (waaay back in the day ), I thought he had a cool look, but I was thinking there's probably not much else to him...Then they started showing him teleporting all over and doing all these crazy acrobatic and swashbuckling stuff, and I was like "WHOA! This dude is a bad-ass mother-f'er!" THEN, I saw his teleport sound effect, BAMF, and a lighning-bolt idea hit me; "BAMF!?!?! Bad-Ass M-F'er!!!" and that's what those letters have stood for - in my opinion- ever since, when it comes to this ridiculously cool character.
Oh yeah! I scoured the Internet for some of those. Marvel had the 'swimsuit' edition phase back in the day. Some of the suits are made up, but a lot of them are suits worn by the characters in the past.
Rogue's suit is from the infamous X-Men Pool Party Poster. Domino's suit is from a swimsuit issue, the one with Cable and a surf board I think. X-23 and Hope's outfits look like something I remember from book covers. I don't know about the rest. Nice job.
Storm is wearing a suit done by the late Michael Turner. Psylock's is a Jim Lee design, one that Cyclops was a big fan of. I don't know who the artist is that did Jubilee's, but it might have been from a swimsuit issue. Rachel Summer's suit was designed by Alan Davis, I think. And the one kitty pride is wearing was from a comic book page I found on google images, no idea who did that one, but it was cute! Lots of searches. I was surprised I didnt find all of the characters in swimsuits at one point or another.
I reserve the right to draw in as many boobies as possible if content requires it. I'm not a big fan of gratuitous, broke back boobies on a cover, but the homage to the beastie boys was fitting use of boobage. I have boobies. I'm a big fan of boobies. I'd like to be able to draw more boobies and get paid for boobage.
It's also funny cause I was talking to a DC editor today about this very thing - the line you have to walk as a superhero artist (at least, a self-respecting one) where you have to draw beautiful and exaggerated females (males, as well) that are attractive but not be gratuitous and vulgar. As a male artist, it's a bit intimidating.
In short, I wish I had boobies so no one would give me crap about drawing boobies.
Dude, I get just as much crap! I don't exactly get a free pass. I get held to a higher standard by women in general. But it helps me keep myself to a higher standard.
I have never had a problem with showing curves, I've just always maintained that there has to be a point to it. You can't have three rough and angry men with a girl in supermodel, broke back pose, it just comes off cheesy. Women like to look and feel bad-ass, AND be sexy. It's all in the delivery. We know we can be eye candy, but we dont like to be treated like JUST eye candy. That's the rule of thumb I draw by.
