Wolverine Poster #122 Brown Costume Poster Jim Lee!


SKU: 14385 Category:


Through the first five years of Wolverine’s shelf life, readers had grown accustomed to one single costume. So it must have been a shock when he wandered into the Xavier Institute one day sporting a new red and brown ensemble. When questioned about his makeover, Wolverine’s reply boiled down to: “Why the hell not, bub?”.

This costume would endure throughout the ’80s and into the early ’90s. The earliest X-Men videogames featured this costume, as well as the failed TV show Pryde of the X-Men. Logan even returned to this outfit for a time in the pages of Wolverine: Origins. Like the Tiger Stripe gear, this costume seems to have been retired for good, but it still remains one of the most poplar Wolverine looks of all time.

Personally, I’ve always hated the yellow costume…this one always seemed more animalistic to me!

Jim Lee (born August 11, 1964) is a Korean American comic book artist, writer, editor, and publisher. He entered the industry in 1987 as an artist for Marvel Comics, illustrating titles such as Alpha Flight and The Punisher War Journal, before gaining popularity on The Uncanny X-Men. X-Men No. 1, the 1991 spin-off series premiere that Lee penciled and co-wrote with Chris Claremont, remains the best-selling comic book of all time, according to Guinness World Records.

In 1992, Lee and several other artists formed their own publishing company, Image Comics, to publish their creator-owned titles, with Lee publishing titles such as WildC.A.T.s and Gen¹³ through his studio Wildstorm Productions. Eschewing the role of publisher in order to return to illustration, Lee sold Wildstorm in 1998 to DC Comics, where he continued to run it as a DC imprint until 2010, as well as illustrating successful titles set in DC’s main fictional universe, such as the year-long “Batman: Hush” and “Superman: For Tomorrow” storylines. On February 18, 2010, Jim Lee was announced as the new Co-Publisher of DC Comics with Dan DiDio, both replacing Paul Levitz.

He has received a Harvey Award, Inkpot Award and three Wizard Fan Awards in recognition for his work.
