Oya. Idie Okonkwo. About a decade ago, in the Marvel Universe there was a decimation. The Scarlet Witch, whose power is to shape and change reality, whispered “No more mutants.” the result decimated the mutant population, people were depowered, died, and for years no mutant signature was activated. This changed with the repowering of the Five Lights. Five mutants across the globe whose power activates. Idie is one of those. She can control both fire and ice, and is deeply deeply religious. She thinks her mutant power is witchcraft and is always spouting fire and brimstone stuff. She’s awesome.
Angel. Warren Worthington the Third. Warren was on of the original X-Men. He was a handsome millionaire playboy until wings sprouted from his back. He tried a solo career before hooking up with the mutants he has been with for the last 50 years, at times he has even been their payroll. This drawing is very influenced by the work of one of my favorite comic artists, Adam Pollina, on his awesome Angel miniseries. Check it out if you can. Beautiful.

Dr. Henry McCoy, or Hank, or The Beast. The Beast is one of the original five X Men, and I love him. His mutant power was he was born with abnormally large hands and feet. LAME! Also, he was super strong and very agile. Less lame. And he was a genius. One day in the 1970’s he defied his own genius by acting quite stupidly and testing some sort of serum on himself that made him turn furry and blue. (the 70’s Beast was what I was going for in this drawing. I’m especially fond of how I drew his left hand.) That stupidity made him cool. And he’s been cool ever since. It has later been revised that his mutation could be de-evolution, so that although he has one of the most brilliant minds in the Marvel Universe, his body could basically devolve into a slug. A zygote. Which would make his story very very tragic. Although I don’t wish that on poor Hank, from a storytelling perspective I think it would be incredibly interesting.
