It's an of the earlier Iron Man as well - as I think it's been said before, we'll probably see some different versions of characters - I hesitate to say variants

There had better be an Iron Fist to go with that Luke Cage.
Dear anybody, please do a badass print of Rian Johnson's Brick. If necessary, I'll buy them all.

We have 60’s era Tony’s Iron Man suit. We have the Mark I, that one’s actually really cool in person. We have Captain America, we have Loki. Loki’s really awesome too. We have Scarlet Witch. We have Hulk. We have two Visions. We have a white Vision and then we have the normal green, red and yellow Vision. And then if you want to start getting real weird we have Beast and Wolverine and all those from the non-core group but yeah I think most of the Avengers are in there. Hawkeye, for sure is in there. There’s a ton of stuff.

There’s always Captain America, there’s always Spider-Man, and we love them, but wanting to do something with M.O.D.O.K. and wanting to do something with smaller characters that we like.

Because these are portraits, he had to get really intricate with all those things and just seeing how he thinks that Wolverine’s mask is sewn or how Green Goblin is actually wearing a mask and that’s where the Goblin face comes from and that he’s just sort of a real person underneath there and he shows how the mask attaches. I think that’s going to be really interesting to fans to where they can see a weird reality behind these, almost. The thing I’ve been really fascinated with was how did Daredevil sew his suit? Seeing how he figured that stuff out is really genius.

One thing I really like to do, before I’m about to do Deadpool, I’ll read a bunch of Deadpool stuff; to help inspire me and motivate me but to also help define the attitude of it and how I want it to be perceived. It’s important to get that sort of stuff in there.

I really enjoyed doing Bishop and I did Cable as well.

I wasn’t planning on doing a Red Hulk and then I ended up doing a Red Hulk.

And I think with Mike especially, he has so many different styles, that his portraits people seem to gravitate towards a lot and specifically his “Just Like Us.” I think they’re so funny. One of them that we did for Marvel was the Sandman [being] very, very, happy building a sandcastle out of himself. It’s stuff like that. I think that too, if you can look at the things that make these characters these characters and then kind of flip that. Venom is this hulking monster and has this long tongue and is very intimidating. The “Just Like Us” that he did is him standing there with a smile on his face and a sucker, with his tongue wrapped a million times around the sucker.


There's 12 more to the list if they are talking about a different version of Wolverine.
