I rarely get to see work in progress so I'm thankful for this opportunity. I'm already picturing how this will look after it's finished.

   I guess I could call this an "in progress" drawing.  Interesting concept, having so many villains going up against the Avengers (though the idea is a montage of separate battles).  It could've been a classic Avengers run, with the Mandarin and Ultimo thrown in for good measure.

   Come to think of it, I don't recall any appearances of the Mandarin and Ultimo outside of Iron Man.  You had others (the Black Knight and the Living Laser from IM's comic, the Enchantress and the Executioner from Thor), but these two apparently didn't do much "crossing over".

As noted in my initial post, this is based on the story in the first AVENGERS ANNUAL (KING SIZED SPECIAL), altho Ultimo, as you can see, did not make it onto the cover…

The Mandarin was also behind the Swordsman's attempt to join the Avengers in Avengers #19-20.

I've never read that annual. Is it included in the Marvel Masterworks volumes?

A small advantage to finding myself wide awake at 3am…

Full sized @ 200dpi en route to Dan!

(As usual, something I missed until I scanned it -- the wrist band on Hercules' left arm. Missing its decorative seams. Fixed on the original.)

And, to save you having to flip back to the first page of the thread to compare…

Ultimo! Don't feel bad for not recognizing him. I had no idea who he was before I did this commission!

Amazing!

I apologize if this question sounds stupid but is it one big battle happening all at once or is it a collection of smaller battles happening at different times?

As I mentioned in my initial post, this qualifies as an "action montage". None of these battles happened in the same place at the same time.

WOW! My dream commission would be the Avengers of this era. My particular favorites of this piece . . . Hawkeye and Goliath. Wonderful. Great action!

Amazing!  This could have so easily been a complete mess, but everything works.

I didn't know Ultimo either; apparently he's more of an Iron Man nemesis. 

Now someone needs to commission Avengers vs Ultimo, Ultron, and the U-Foes!

The name seems somewhat familiar. What reference did you use?

Interesting. It looks like it could be interpreted either way since the scale seems to work out.

Well, sure. Compare to the "original" action montage:

The object is to treat all the element s AS IF they were happening in the same place at the same time.

I love this piece.  I have to say I am glad that you were able to get up that early, JB.  I have to say Hawkeye is my favorite part of this.  To me JB draws the best Hawkeye ever!

Really like the look on Hercules face. Looks like he is enjoying himself.

I'm getting a Don Heck vibe from this.

Which is a good thing!

Spectacular!  This is definitely one of those special pieces we'll be talking about in the "Best of 2010" thread that will pop up in about 12 months from now!
