    Don't even get me started on Scott's Porsche. We all know the complexities of the Summers family tree. A Summers family vehicle should be able to include at a minimum two Jean Greys (clones inclusive), three time-displaced alternate reality descendants, and one five foot tall side piece (admittedly, that last one is small enough that it's probably covered with cargo space.) If he took his family responsibilities seriously, he should be running around in a Chevy Suburban or something. Besides, being able to lug around all of Cable's firepower would show that he's truly committed to his son's needs, much more than the empty words of a dramatic speech in the last act of the finale.

    He's definitely huge. He's 6'8" and wide, but Liefeld drew him larger than he normally would have because that's what sold comics then.

    Going off of how Liefeld would draw him now, he's not nearly as large.

    I think it was the art...though looking at a lot of the 90s stuff...artists loved to draw heroes like body builders, didn't they? XD

    Really, I think this piece by Jim Lee of all the 90s X-Teams together and him standing next to a number of characters is why I think he's huge.

    Like he's almost as big as Colossus and Strong Guy... (And I think the Marvel Legends Strong Guy still seems smaller than he should be.)

    I would love to see a behind the scenes or deleted scene of Cable attempting to get in the back of that car with all his gear on.

    But yes I agree. After Jean (clone) announced they were having a child, they both should have gone to a local dealership and discussed family friendly vehicle options. I mean for goodness sakes, I didn't even see a child seat in that Porsche. That's just poor planning and parenting.

    Madrox must be standing on other Madroxes to be up that high.

    I think they're all standing on some ice stands from Iceman as at the bottom of the drawing you can see mounds of ice around the lower characters. Shadowcat is sitting on part of it even.

    Thanks for putting the idea of an infinitely expanding Madrox human centipede in my head, that's definitely not going to rattle around in my brain for the rest of my life

    Yeah, I have the poster version of that from when it originally was being sold in the 90s at my LCS and you can tell if you look at it that there are different layers of ice that everyone is standing on.

    Ok, was there a Disney+ wave in any of the leaked lists for this year? I could have sworn I saw one and yet nothing has been mentioned about it at all. Am I insane or was there one really slated to come out this year?

    Dan Who is talking to Dan Yun on his stream right now. Some interesting stuff in there. Dan said we should know the other 3 figures in the 85th anniversary wave by the end of June and that there is a new Wolverine body coming next year, a further upgrade even above the Astonishing suit.

    I would think it’s for the new costume previewed for some upcoming X-men comics this year.

    I’d be surprised if an all new brown costume buck is made as most of the blue/yellow xsuit buck could be reused for it along with the mask and legs from X-men 97 Wolverine.

    Could be but even so that could still be the basis as the next Wolverine buck.
