Channeling my favorite and I suspect most infamous shot of this character, that introductory gratuitous nude in X-Men #4. I’m sure drawing that cyber stuff all over the muscular anatomy was fun for Jim Lee but I’m more into a biological direction. Techno-organic is very 90s whereas a dude with natural tentacles that emit super spores is cooler, hotter and way more mutant!
Of course, in my head-canon any tentacle is phallic but in the in X-Version (on Patreon) the 3rd phallus drives the theme home. Also, apologies for dragging you all through my beard phase. Lately every character is looking better bearded to me!
