I've never read an issue of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents but this is awesome.

I miss the days of really good covers that leaps out and grabs one attention without mercy. Perhaps needless to say, given my previous post, but THIS would be one book I'd pick up without hesitation.

Nice commission. I enjoyed THUNDER Agents back in the day, and was reminded of them watching Heroes on television (relatively ordinary people suddenly getting super powers). Considering my fondness for the Vision, it should come as no surprise to anyone that my favorite Agent was NoMan. Good to see them all again.

Incidentally, what are the individual characters called? And who's who in the picture? (based on Wayde's comment above, I'm guessing NoMan is the caped one).

Also what powers do they possess?

Lightning's the Speedster.  He gets his powers from his suit.  Which kills him a little bit more every time he uses it.

Raven's the dude in flight.  A late commer to the group.  He could fly and, like the others, his powers came from his suit.

NoMan's a scientist who had his consciousness transplanted into a robot body.  He's also got lots of back ups that he can switch to.

Dynamo's the de facto leader in the stuff I read.  His powers come from his belt.  He's the strong guy.

Up in Heaven, Wally Wood is smiling broadly, thinking "Damn!  This Byrne kid came along a generation too late!"

As someone who originally picked these up off the newsstands, I echo his sentiments.  Great piece, JB!

Came this><close to working with Wood on some of his creator owned
characters, very early in my career. Even got to exchange a few letters with
him.

Now, who can tell us why all this places the Awesome Android at
something of a disadvantage?

Well, couldn't the Android absorb powers if he touched someone (like The
Thing)- powered suits would prevent that from happening.

Also, wasn't his shut-off switch under his armpit?

Great work!

Thanks for the info, Kevin. Now I'm even more interested in the characters.

Anybody have any insight into the probability that T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents would get the Showcase treatment? Or do I "need" to go the Archive route?

I just got my first batch from Jim.  It had this one, the Alpha Flight piece as well as the Captain Canuck / Red Skull piece.

JB, I just wanted to say thanks again.  They look even better in person.  Can't wait to hang 'em!

Kevin, if you don't mind, I for one would love to see a photo of the finished result once you've hung 'em. If you have a person in there for a sense of size, I wouldn't cry either.

Sure, Joakim.  Though it may be a bit.  I want to get all five pieces first so's I can do my Wall of Byrne.  Doom Patrol in the center with Alpha Flight on the left with the Demon below and Thunder Agents to the right with Captain Canuck underneath.

Here are two images that should give you an idea of the size of the various
commission pieces:





And here's the two composited together to give an even better sense. . .

Thanks, JB. I'd seen the two first ones before, but the combination of the two helps even more.

But it's still very cool to see various commissions with somebody next to them. I remember that the first photo that I saw in here showing that caused me a wee bit of a gasp. It just brings home in every case a sense of materiality that is easy to loose track of when looking at the pieces onscreen as "just" images.

What NoMan does on his own free time is none of our business.
