More of the small details that made a BIG impression!
1. Black Bolt: Yeah, he's got one of the sharpest costumes Jack Kirby ever designed, but it was the juxtaposition of his gentle personality with his destructive power that made him such a fascinating and unique character. As the ruler of a mysterious race named The Inhumans, Black Bolt lived his life in silence, conveying his thoughts only through gestures and facial expressions.
Why the silent act?
Because even the faintest whisper of his hypersonic voice could level a city or knock out the Hulk. It's even said his voice can awaken distant volcanoes or cause earthquakes on the far side of the planet. In fact, at full strength, his voice may be powerful enough to destroy the planet itself!
2. Superteam "class photos": I've always been a sucker for those posed "class photo" style shots of comic book superteams. I love the sense of tradition and simple camaraderie they promote, especially when they're brimming with as much history as the JLA-JSA grouping below:3. Magneto's Helmet: Conveying mystery and a regal charisma, Magneto's helmet evokes the look of a king or warlord from the ancient world. The open interior space reveals a minimal amount of face to maximum effect, as the sunken eyes and gritted teeth instantly communicate his simmering hatred for non-mutants.
Sure, the peripheral vision is non-existent, but when you control Earth's magnetic fields...who needs it?
