Note: Artist Michael Lunsford sent this in unannounced earlier this week, and blew out socks off (mine and Dean’s both!). Lunsford has revisited the inaugural class of Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters and given the group a modern day makeover. Lunsford gets bonus points for doing the costume variants for some of the members — the only thing I wish I could see more of is Beast in his original human guise before he went all blue. I like all of the designs, especially his take on Cyclops — the idea of hard armor over a more manageable cloth uniform is a great idea. – Chris A.
Look after the jump for bigger versions of each character, including some alternate designs!
