My eye's hurt from staring at this for the last hour. WOW!! I was wondering how you would make that many characters work. You have surpassed anything I envisioned. It's an amazing piece . Thank you John!

Epic ! Huge !!!
I will always regret you never draw a fight between Juggernaut and Colossus in your run, as I was introduced to the UXM with the one in Ireland by Dave Cockrum (and enjoyed the one in the pub by JRJr, but this extraordinary commission does help !!!

Great encirclement by the Sentinels.  

Many thanks to you and the commissioner !

After further scrutiny on a larger monitor, all I can do is agree that this is an amazing commission!

Wow great work again JB. What an epic battle. With these commissions, do any of them ever have you plotting out before or after panels in your head? Again, awesome.

That is way cool! WOW! Colossus steals the show for me. I think the way the metal shines on his face and hair is brilliant! Sentinel's cut fingers, Polaris in distress, and Cyke in action are among my favorite areas in this beauty. Sweet, sweet piece of art! Thanks for posting these inspirations.

That way lies madness!

Altho I do try to "tell a story" thru the interactions of the characters, I rarely give any thought to the sequence of events that would have brought them to the exact moment shown in the commission. Nor do I worry much about what comes after!

My scanner was being a bit quirky, yesterday, so in order to post this I thought I'd try taking a good, clear shot with the camera in my iPhone. At max, the resolution on that amazing little device is good enough that I can use pictures I take with it in NEW VISIONS.

Here's a reduced version of the original color image, before cropping and a bit of distortion correction:

The original is 4034x2032 dpi.

This one is so very cool. The layout has me stunned. The pair of Sentinel legs and an arm is just cool as hell.

HOLY COW!
I think this is the commission that breaks the bank, in terms of all the elements requested. What a picture!
JB, this is just stunning.

Mr. Byrne, an observation... I always love your renditions of Phoenix - both classically elegant while what seems a simple design.

But anytime I see Phoenix in a drawing, I immediately think "That's it. Fight's over." Something like when the Hulk or Superman show up for a fight. Unless the menace is specifically designed to challenge that character - which makes the other characters somewhat overmatched - I figure that the discussion is done.

Is that a consideration to you when you're using Phoenix in your commissions? Was it during your X-Men run? Or was it more of having to devise a situation that will challenge all the X-Men equally?

Awesome piece.

JB- How would you imagine the Sentinels dealing with the Juggernaut?

One of the reasons behind turning Phoenix into a villain was that she was so powerful (with Chris' handling, no matter what I drew!) that she was turning the X-Men into fifth wheels in their own book. By making her a villain, Chris could let loose, but not diminish the rest of the gang.

Fortunately, it's not something I have ever had to consider!!

Juggernaut wins. He always wins. As I have been saying for 30+ years, even the Destroyer wouldn't stop him (I think!). ;)

Juggernaut is a magical being, and magic is hard to beat. I suppose Dr. Strange might have a chance. And Kitty could kill him. But I suspect we'd rather she didn't do that.

Without getting too much into thread drift (always a crime of mine, sorry), it's why I'm so intrigued by Juggernaut VS Destroyer. Both near-unstoppable, both akin to forces of nature and both have magical properties. I can't predict it!

I love this commission. There is so much to see that I could be days talking about it. Just some questions for John Byrne about the Nightcrawler teleportation effect. As you've drawn it, it seems to me I can hear the short and strong BAMF (no need any sound effect). How did you arrive to it? It's been a natural thing or did you have to make many thoughts to obtain it? I mean, Do you have any own rules or follow some sequence for drawing it?

JB-If Kitty could take Juggernaut out would I be wrong to assume the Vision would be able to as well?
