Future Cyclops Costume Makes His Name Really Perfect In New Art
X-Men’s Cyclops gets a shocking new look based on the ongoing comic book label world of Marvel 2099 from writer and artist Louie Joyce.
The oldest and most experienced leader of the x-menScott Summers aka Cyclops, got a modern update from seasoned comic book creator Louie Joyce (footprint, The corner store). A classic Marvel Comics superhero born in the Silver Age of comics, Cyclops has been given many different costume alternations, but none are as advanced as this one.
Cyclops may not always be the leader of the X-Men, but he is one of the most popular and recurring mutant superheroes, alongside Storm and Emma Frost. Ever remaining a constant in Cyclops’ persona is his famous ruby quartz visor, given to the veteran leader by his famed mentor, Professor Charles Xavier, to help contain Scott’s powerful optic blasts.
Before the release of the next Spider Man 2099: Exodus #5, professional comic book writer and artist Louie Joyce took to Twitter to share his own take on Cyclops, based on the character’s all-new future appearance in Marvel 2099. As the name suggests, this brand of Marvel titles focuses on a set of beloved Marvel heroes as they exist in the distant future (known as Earth-TRN767). Besides the X-Men, this new line of Marvel titles has spotlighted popular superheroes such as Black Panther, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, and The Avengers.
While Joyce’s work manages to keep the general iconography of Cyclops’ uniform intact, there is one major difference to be noted. In place of Scott’s classic ruby quartz visor is a mechanized helmet containing a single eyepiece, resembling that of an android as opposed to a human (or mutant). The lack of a visor but a single eyelet emphasizes Scott’s “Cyclops” namesake even more than his main 616 comic book counterpart.
The modern line of Marvel 2099 comics continues to grow in both history and popularity, which will only see Cyclops’ new design rise to fame. Joyce’s professional art manages to capture the cutting-edge aesthetic of 2099’s comic book style.
While just a concept, Joyce’s Cyclops art should be enough to hold readers over until the full character arrives in the coming weeks. Patient readers will get to see Joyce’s Cyclops design alongside other future members of the x-men in action when writer Steve Orlando (Marauders) and Kim Jacinto (Sentinel) Spider Man 2099: Exodus #5 hits select comic shops on August 3.
