"What if" I wanted to draw a team book? I'd want to draw this one. Nothing high concept here. Just wanted to put my favorite versions of some of my favorite Marvel characters into the Avengers, and have them lead by Nick Fury, who would make a kick-ass leader of any group! And yes, Beast is now a member of S.H.I.E.L.D - he's a joiner! :)
EDIT: Fellow Twartist Nathan Fairbairn colored this guy up for me. Amazing work, Nathan! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! :D
EDIT: Holy cats!! Another outstanding take on colors by fellow Twartist, Evan Shaner!! Thanks a ton, Doc, it looks A-MA-ZING!!!!
