Exiled Storm

Queen Ororo
The Savior of Stormtown:
A final refuge for humanity in a world gone mad...
Isolated, protected, and powered within the eye of an unending torrent of hurricane force winds maintained with relentless zeal by a woman once worshiped as a God pushed past her breaking point.

Calling all Marvel Fanboys: "Exiles" reboot redux

So I was reading CBR (the interwebs source for Comic Book Resources) and I can across an interview with comic book writer Jeff Parker (Agents of Atlas). In it he talks about new projects, included a reboot of the dimensional misplaced Mutant team: The Exiles.

I think this makes like the 23rd time this comic has soft rebooted since its initial run (which granted kinda makes sense since the strength of the series is just seeing what cool f-ed up alternate dimension versions of the regular X-Men a writer can come up with).

Parker is going to launch the book with a cast that includes alternate version of Beast, Scarlet Witch, Forge, Black Panther and Polaris. That is a serious "B"-Squad. Oh, and he is bringing back Blink (because everyone misses Blink). Good Lord we can do better.


If you have made it this far I am sure you are asking yourself... but Stowe, why the Hell do I care?



You care cause I am dusting off my old Marvel Exiles thread (from way back in SEPT. '07: http://jamesstowe.blogspot.com/2007/09/marvel-exiles.html).

As cool as that team was (eehh...) I can do better. And I want your help.

I need ideas for Mutants from Alternate Dimensions.

Now I know what you are going to say. You are going to say... but Stowe, you asked us to do this very same thing way back in SEPT. '07 (http://jamesstowe.blogspot.com/2007/09/marvel-exiles-x-panded.html) and you NEVER DREW ANY OF THEM.

And you know what? You're right. I didn't. But now its different. I'm a changed Stowe.

I promise to draw.

and to help here are some ome helpful Wiki links:



MUTANTS STILL ALIVE ON EARTH 616 (geekest link award!)


So there you go.

Post your ideas in the comments.

This is the challenge...let the best EXILES win.

The Fez of Shame!

Word to the wise...

Don't forget your C.L.A.W. mandated Fez during a meeting.

This horrible thing could happen.

My Daughter's Valentines

Here is the first of my daughter's valentine requests. She wanted cute animals that were also babies and princesses.

This is what I did:

Apparently I was too late for my daughter's class valentine give away... so I don't know if I am going to be making any more of these or not.

Kids Valentines #4: Bestest Friends

Kids Valentines #3: Both sides coming together

Kids Valentines #2: Vader and creation

No words needed.

Kids Valentines #1: Chewie

My children have both requested that I make them Valentines Day cards this year, which is pretty awesome.

My daughter (age 2) requested baby animals that are also princesses (which pretty much sums up any daughter age 2).

My son, on the other hand and being a wise old boy of 5, requested Star Wars characters... and gave me a top 10 list of characters to illustrate...

So this week I'll be posting the results. I'll include a key line black and white version (which the kids will be able to color) and a simple color field version of each.

First off...

Star Wars Valentines #1: Chewbacca
