I was flipping through THUNDER AGENTS #3 (1984), with art by the legendary Dave Cockrum, and realized the similarities of TA Villain IRON MAIDEN and X-Force villain STRYFE.
Stryfe was created by Rob Liefeld in 1990, who is known for.... "homaging"... others' previous works. I wonder if Thunder Agents' Iron Maiden was the inspiration for Stryfe? A question to ask at the next con encounter!
I have a soft spot for Stryfe. He's just so shiny and 90s Rad!
