The Hellfire Gala is going to be an annual event for X-Men comics — at least for now — and I’m very excited. I really enjoyed last year’s event, and I think it is an amazing addition to the narrative. It’s also, apparently, a chance for god-tier artist Russell Dauterman to just go hog wild designing high fashion X-Men outfits. These are just so darn gorgeous!
That Doctor Doom outfit is the most perfect thing I’ve possibly ever seen in my entire life.
There are a couple more outfits available here. They’re all wonderful and perfect and I hope Marvel keeps Dauterman fully employed for years to come for each and every Hellfire Gala. Also, why isn’t he doing interiors for an ongoing comic? He was amazing on Mighty Thor. Where’s his X-Men ongoing?!
