Strong Guy Watch: Sometimes We Do Get Nice Things

It’s a good day, my friends. Just yesterday I was talking about how I enjoy spotting my favorite comic book characters when they randomly show up. And it’s happened again! In the best possible way! If you’re subscribed to Marvel Unlimited, you’ve had access to some Marvel web comics, including an X-Men book. And as if Marvel was reading my mind, this week’s issue kicks off a new story starring a friendly reunion between Multiple Man and Strong Guy!

On a jetskiing adventure!

Even better, the whole thing is written and drawn by creator Jason Loo. Remember him? He’s the incredible fan who created his own Madrox fan comic and got discovered by Marvel honchos on Twitter and was brought on to do real Marvel work for the recent X-Corp comic.

I won’t spoil what happens in this issue — available now — but it features a real, awesome reunion between Jamie and Guido that recognizes that the two are best pals. I think that’s the first time we’ve seen such a thing in years! There’s also some quality time with wife, Layla Miller, and their son, along with some X-Corp cameos. And the comic will continue!

Jason Loo is the Multiple Man fan in all of us, and he’s getting to actually take the reigns on the character. This is a pretty good dream come true.

Some Fan-Driven Multiple Man Greatness

This is a really fun story about a really big Multiple Man fan: artist Jason Loo. Once upon a time, way back in November 2017, Loo posted on Twitter a really fun bit of Multiple Man fan art. It’s this great little piece that really leans into the awesomeness and uniqueness that is Jamie Madrox the Multiple Man.

Life being awesome, that picture was finally noticed this past April by Marvel head honcho Tom Brevoort. You can see Brevoort’s reply on the link to Twitter. How exciting, right? Brevoort is instantly floored with the creativity of the artwork and wants to put Loo to work.

And as of X-Corp #3 this week, it seems they really did! This new double-page spread appeared at the end of the new issue. It’s a beautiful piece!

Congrats to Jason Loo for putting his creativity out there and getting to make some real Multiple Man content!

The world is indeed a better place because of Jason Loo!
