Billy Tan, the artist who designed it, says "[writer] Sam wanted something with a little cross of EVA from Evangelion, something sleek and alien-like". By "alien-like" he obviously meant "Twiki, from Buck Rogers" and "Syclone, from Masters of the Universe".

I was proud of Marvel when, 20 years ago, they made Northstar become their first openly gay character, and I'm proud of Marvel today for doing this. As an X-Men reader I could care less about this wedding, just the same way I didn't care about Cyclops & Jean Grey's wedding in '94 - I'm simply not interested in Romance Comics. But what I am interested in is EQUALITY, and not just for some, but FOR ALL.

Hey Jim - I know you're on a much needed vacay, but we need to discuss JR jr's atrocious artwork in the new AvX #5. Specifically this big "fight" he drew to kick off the issue.
Am I wrong in not being able to tell what the fuck Cap's shield is doing here??? Did it get embedded in Namor's hip??? I mean, come on! The previous page shows Cap throwing it, but seriously - anyone who's not a complete buffoon knows a shield can't fly through the air like that.
And then Cyclops' optic blast - what the hell is it "exploding" on? Red Hulk's leg?
This is one of the most awful examples of his hackery I've ever seen. Please use your considerable influence on the web to SMASH THIS!!!
(you could also make that a new column on the site - Jim SMASHES So You Don't Have To)
Grand Admiral Thrawn from the Timothy Zahn 'Thrawn Trilogy' books, and Dark Luke" & "Clone Emperor Palpatine figures from 'Dark Empire'. I've been looking for these for like 15 years.... got em for $5 each!
And then grabbed these comics for $2 each:
Oh, and this trade for $2:
