D for Defense #38

Following the old Marvel tradition, the third comicbook the series that made ROB! the rockstar he is now would include the crossover of the Amazing Spiderman, with who X-Force would confront the terrible Juggernaut, one of the most powerfull mutant foe. How can we represent this menace, the power of a railway engine out of control, in just one image? It is not an easy task and only an artist of Rob Liefeld’s talent could sucessfully accomplish such a feat.

To do so he uses a dynamic composition, to make clear that the Juggernaut is unstopable, a force of nature. Most heroes become mere spectators of this show; the only one standing in his way, Shatterstar is passed over, not even giving him a chance to use his lethal swords. Juggernaut crosses through cover with dynamism. His right arm is used to highlight the comicbook’s title and to emphasize the colossus direction, if you follow it you can also see Cannonball, whose tiny size indicates his remoteness, not even him can reach the Juggernaut.

Also, to prevent the viewer to get distracted from what’s really important, Liefeld leaves out any kind of background or scenery, that get’s reduced to a boulder that serves as a pedestral for the terrible villain. But Liefeld does give us a few clues about the localization of the characters: the presence of the most newyorker of heroes and his pose, hanging from a tall building, reveal that the action takes place in New York. In his pedestral, the dust storm indicates that the Juggernaut’s run is size of a cattle stampede. Also, compositionally, it allows the inclusion of texts without hiding any of the characters.

No doubt this would be a sure buy for anyone who saw this atractive cover in his usual comicbook shop.

  1. Pues yo sigo creyendo que la imagen contiene aún más elementos que los reseñados… Incluso me parece que se equivocan en cuanto al tamaño de Bala de Cañón…
    Que Juggernaut es imparable es cosa sabida, que es enorme (pero ENORME) también se sabe… Warpath (así se llama el indio, no?), por otra parte es la fuerza bruta de X-Force y, a según quién lo dibuje, se supone que es el más alto de todo el equipo… Pero podemos ver que se coloca por enfrente de la pierna derecha de Kain Marko, quedando, entonces, en la categoría de un enano (casi del tamaño del Átomo deceíta, vamos).
    Por otra parte, Sam Gutiere siempre ha sido calificado como el espíritu del equipo, es, incluso y pese a su aparente falta de molonidad, el lugarteniente de Cable (y suponemos que el daysprinner no se equivoca al elegir a su subordinados, no?), de ahí que pese a estar por detrás de la piernas del hermano de Charles Xavier, su tamaño sea casi igual del su compañero indígena americano… Es decir, casi un coloso…
    Y, por cierto, los dientes… Nadie piensa mencionar los dientes?

  2. For example, the Chiquistaní:
    Ese peaso de Yuguernauuuurl!!!
    ¡¡¡ Jaaarl !!!
    ¿Porque el chiquistaní es de uso mundial, no? Bastante más que el inglés y el chino, ¡andevapará!

  3. Vale, a demanda del público conocedor, traduzco mi perorata a un idioma que todo mundo pueda comprender, el llamado inglés altavista:
    But I still believe that the image contains elements that further review … Even I think they are wrong about the size of Cannonball …
    Juggernaut is unstoppable that it is well known, which is enormous (but HUGE) is also known … Warpath (the name the Indians, no?), On the other hand is the brute force of X-Force, and depending on who you draw, is supposed to be the highest of all equipment … But we can see that is placed in front of the right leg of Kain Marko, being, then, in the category of a tiny (about the size of the Atom deceit, come on).
    Moreover, Gutiere Sam has always been described as the spirit of the team, it is even, despite his apparent lack of Molon, Lieutenant Cable (and assume that the daysprinner not wrong to choose their subordinates, no?) , which is why despite being behind the legs of the brother of Charles Xavier, its size is about the same fellow American Indian … That is, almost a giant …
    And, of course, teeth … No one thinks to mention the teeth?
