Archangel: \*sniff* "Why do I smell body glitter?"
wolvie: why do you know what body glitter smells like..
Archangel: Hey, look over there, it's Psylocke!
Despite the fact that these outfits look ridiculous, i still love Joe Madureira's art on uncanny X-Men. Even after all those years. Keep in mind as a kid i was reading his run at the time it was published, so maybe it's nostalgia speaking... Still love this era tho...
Speaking as somone way too young to have read these when they came out, it's not just nostalgia. This art, and these designs are still awesome.
Cyclops loves it when Wolverine wears that mesh top.
Right?! I can't believe how dated some art of this era looks now!
I couldnt disagree more.
What makes it look dated and terrible is the “extreme” lettering
What!? People don’t think this art aged well!? Is this Joe Mad? I love it, even today.
Definitely man. Your opinion just seems like a popular one judging by the comments, I just thought more people still loved Joe’s art you know? But definitely, wasn’t trying to shit on your opinion or anything, sorry if it came off that way, I was just surprised at how many people didn’t think his art held up!
I think it looks amazing, but at the same time very "of the era". And someone mentioned the lettering too, which I think lends to that. But I probably wasn't clear- I LOVED Mad's art.
Yep I agree, it definitely looks amazing but to me, it’s not even like an “of the era” type of thing, like I legitimately prefer this type of art over a lot of the more modern current artists, but that could be nostalgia talking because I loved this extreme over-the-top era and these costumes and X-men stories, so I recognize that my opinion might be a little biased.
There was actually an action figure approximating this outfit around that time period.
That outfit, that build, there is only thing this can mean.
Logan’s a fuckin JoJo character
You thought it was Logan, BUT IT WAS ME, DIO!!!
Loved that kinky Joe Mad Wolverine!
When you got a showdown at the dojo at 8 but a rave at 9.
He looks like he’s going to a weeaboo themed gay nightclub
You also need to have the bodily proportions of a Warhammer figurine to not spook the locals, apparently. Even skinny posh boy Warren's shoulders are bigger than his head here.
Wolverine now attending euphoria high
Love that Warren got all decked out and got to the place where they're doing shit before even asking why
That’s just how Ninjas dress. You don’t play fighting games 🤷🏾
Warren: Ok I get the Gi and stuff but the glow sticks and ecstasy.
Logan: Turns out on top of worshipping a mystical dragon they also think God is DJ. If we get into real trouble we break those out.
Tradition...and I'm guess fan service.
Not that certain parties are against that. Seriously though, Logan and Warren do look pretty good.
The art post AOA was definitely suspect at times depending on if it was either Uncanny, X-Men, X-Factor, X-Force, Wolverine, or Cable
I hate this art
Damn I suppose art is all subjective but I freaking love this stuff
