IRON MAN BY DESIGN   Cover to X-FORCE 26
 
  Man, these Iron Man by Design covers are fun! In case you missed my Pinball Machine version of Shellhead, the premise is this:  What would Iron Man look like if he had not been designed by Tony Stark?  In this case, the designers are the "People of Atlantis".  For some reason, undersea kingdoms always make me think of old serials from the 40s-50s, and that is probably how the cape ended up in there! With the helm, I was going for a Creature of the Black Lagoon look, hence the jaw/gills and freaky webbed ears. The pose is based off of Renaissance art--namely The Fountain of Neptune in Rome.
