The New Mutants Get A Costume Upgrade In Fanart Marvel Shouldn’t Ignore
Freelance comic artist Mike Becker offers an experimental version of The New Mutants, bringing together two generations of the team.
The former super-powered students in training known as New Mutants receive a set of flashy new designs in fan-made artwork by indie comic artist Mike Becker. While this is just fan art, Becker ultimately gets right to the heart of what the New Mutants are and what sets them apart from several other superhero teams within Marvel Comics, including their contemporaries. mutants.
After the X-Men’s untimely demise in deep space, the team’s founder and director, Professor Charles Xavier, sought out a new group of mutants to help defend Earth. These “New Mutants” are initially composed of international mutants: Danielle Moonstar (Psyche), Sam Guthrie (Cannonball), Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane), Roberto Da Costa (Sunspot) and X’ian Coy Manh (Karma). Fellow mutants Illyana Rasputin (Magik), Doug Ramsey (Cypher), Amara Aquilla (Magma), and the friendly tech-based alien Warlock would join the team soon after. Once the X-Men inevitably made their journey back home, Xavier’s New Mutants would remain on active duty, with some even graduating from “minor” league missions to join the ranks of the X-Men themselves.
Freelance cartoonist and superhero fan Mike Becker offers a unique take on the New Mutants and their most iconic members. Featured in Becker’s fan art are New Mutants founders Cannonball, Psyche, Sunspot, Wolfsbane, and Karma alongside newer additions Magik, Cypher, Magma, and Warlock. While the New Mutants wore the black and yellow uniforms of the original X-Men during their teenage training period, each member of the team was blessed with a distinctive set of powers and personalities that helped set them all apart. the people involved. Each member of the team depicted in the fan art displays their different abilities in some form or manner. However, the connective tissue between each mutant turns out to be the gold and bright blue patterns of their respective suits. It’s a clever amalgamation of classic black and yellow New Mutants tied together with a new blue X for their famous predecessors and friendly rivals.
Prior to this post, Mike had previously featured New Mutants fan art as youngsters, which was drawn in a more humorous style. Along with a faithful yet modern take on The New Mutants, Becker’s Twitter page is home to a plethora of other X-Men-related characters in the Marvel Universe. Becker’s additional X-Men art offerings include, but are not limited to, Cable, Marrow, Gambit, Jubilee, and Bishop.
The New Mutants can often find themselves in the shadow of the X-Men, but Mike Becker’s epic fan art proves they’re a team that still offers plenty of unique talent and style on their own.
