Jean Grey + White Queen Poster Adam Hughes


SKU: 12685 Category:


The X-Men universe is known not only for it’s strong female characters but also the striking beauty of those ladies and Jean Grey and Emma Frost are no exception. The rivalry of these two for the heart of the leader of the X-Men, Cyclops ended when Jean tragically lost her life. In 2001 Frost appeared in New X-Men as a teacher for the mutant population of Genosha, which was then controlled by Magneto. After a Sentinel strike leveled the island nation, the X-Men found Frost amidst the rubble with a “secondary mutation” which hardened her skin to a diamond-like density. Using Frost as a character was suggested to writer Grant Morrison on his website by a fan. While Morrison initially had no plans to use her, the death of the character Colossus left Morrison with an opening. He created Emma’s secondary mutation – a super strong diamond form – as a replacement for Colossus’ powers and added her to the cast. Subsequently, Frost joined the X-Men. This would lead to her instigating an affair with fellow X-Man Cyclops, who was having marital difficulties with Jean Grey.

Quite possibly the hottest piece of art Adam Hughes has ever done…and that’s saying something!

Comics fans know Hughes as the master of the pin-up, a man whose facility for drawing bodacious ta-tas helped make him one of the most sought-after cover artists in the industry. “I think that the women I draw are usually pretty much more than the size of any part of their anatomy, or the amount of what they aren’t wearing, I think most people can see that there’s something going on behind the eyes, and the women are characters, not just ciphers.”-Adam Hughes. “They’ll follow Adam Hughes on covers if it’s a chick book.”-Dave Johnson.
