Beautiful... And fun!

I don't think anyone draws blue Beast as well as you -- you always manage to capture the joie de vivre of the character. Ms Marvel is a nice addition that you don't see that frequently in Avengers commissions. Conversely, I don't even think of Captain Marvel as an Avenger...

Love that you've thrown in Jarvis!

The distaff Marvel earns her own line on the Character Count Chart, as of this piece, and the Beast earns a second line.

Appreciated, tho I do tend to think that Perez guy pretty much owns this version of Mr. McCoy.

John, I love the attention to anatomical detail of your
characters.  It's what I love most about these large
commissions!

Fun, fun, fun! Love Jarvis peeking out the window.

As far as the furry Beast goes, I call for an official tie between you and George.

The inking on Wonder Man and Iron Man give it a 3-D feel. I dig it!!

Everything about this is awesome--Eric said it best--impossible for me to look at and not immediately smile. Really liked Jarvis in the window. Iron Man armor is perfect (also like how he is coming in from a different direction). The great spirit of adventure that JB brings to these pieces that just shines through. Love it.

I've never noticed the stockiness of Thor's legs, is this something you've always done. He is a stockier character.

Looking at this, although I'm not a huge fan of the safari jacket version of Wonder Man, I realise how much I love that rocket-belt he had. Really cool, has a very swashbuckling feel to it.

When I was first discovering Marvel comics, I was disappointed
whenever Beast was in a comic not drawn by you (same went for
Nightcrawler), until he got turned back to this version in the Simonson's
X-Factor run.

JB, I'm trying to remember whether you ever drew Captain Marvel in a published comic (as opposed to commissions). I can't think of any story lines where you drew him, but I really like your version.

Excluding OHOTMU covers, I can't think of an instance where Mar-Vell has turned up in a book I've drawn. By the time I came into comics professionally, he'd gone from the short white hair he had when I was "introduced" to him in the Kree/Skrull war, to the mop of long blond hair. I do not care for the latter look, and have avoided drawing it.
