Storm Sunday Extra: Adam Hughes, Part V

Invisible Woman by Adam Hughes

Susan Storm Richards, aka the Invisible Woman is my favorite member of the Fantastic Four and one of my favorite leading ladies of Marvel Comics (What’s that? You were expecting as different Storm?).  This original art piece by Adam Hughes does this powerful and beautiful super-heroine justice!  And I am loving that he used the old school Fantastic Four logo.  If everyone drew the FF costumes this wonderfully, there would be no need for redesigns.  Besides, there’s something more sexy about a female character dressed from head to toe.  It’s a nice departure from all of the midriff belly shirts out there which I find ridiculous (I’m looking at you, Supergirl!).  Seriously, retro is so post modern now that it’s positively fashion forward.  Let’s get back to basics!  Oh yeah, and Susan’s hair is looking fabulous!

White Queen Wednesday: Invisible Woman

An Emma Frost Salon
by Ken Kneisel


Welcome, gentle reader. The subject of this week’s White Queen Wednesday was brought to my attention by my buddy RJ Danvers. Before he pointed it out, I had no idea that Emma Frost appeared in last week’s Fantastic Four #584, written by Jonathan Hickman with art by Steve Epting. But after I read this issue I felt like her interaction with Susan Richards, the Fantastic Four’s Invisible Woman, was worth sharing with you as well. Although brief, their little moment drips with hidden meaning and subtle characterization.

Storm Sunday: Steve McNiven

Today’s Storm Sunday features art by Steve McNiven, but it’s not of our lovely weather goddess.  Instead, feast your eyes (who originated that mixed metaphor anyway?) on this beautiful rendering of Susan Storm Richards of the Fantastic Four.  I loved Steve’s version of Sue ever since I saw his art for Marvel Comics’ Civil War mini-series (Also, if you click on herwikipedia link, Susan’s main picture is also by Steve).  Sue has always looked better with long hair (Do any of you remember John Byrne’s cringe-inducing short cut he gave her during his run on FF?  How about the mullet she sported for a while?).  I like how Steve draws is long and flowing, but still tucks it behind her ears.  She looks smart and capable without losing her sex appeal.  Which is how a wife, sister, friend and mother of two who just happens to be the most powerful member of her super-hero team ought to look!

I don’t have a scan of it, but Steve drew Ororo in a panel of Civil War and I think that was it.  As far as I know, he hasn’t drawn her since or before.  If you know differently, let me know.  I’d love to be able to see his rendition of her and share with you all!  So, sorry to trick on this Storm Sunday, but I think the Invisible Woman is a great hero, too and certainly worthy of celebration!  Thanks Steve, for breathing new life into a great character!
