Hey, Dan, really specific and obscure question for you!  I was just noticing how in IDW's Spotlight: Nightbeat, we briefly see Straxus' face and he is mentioned in Simon Furman's script as the one who is putting the implant in Nightbeat's head.

Fast-forward almost two years later, and Straxus makes his full debut in Spotlight: Cyclonus, with a new design by... YOU!  You even gave him a cool battle mask that matches his classic Marvel appearance.

The curiosity to me is that what we see of Straxus' face in SL: Nightbeat pretty much matches your design for Straxus' unmasked face in SL: Cyclonus.  SO!  My question is, did you base Straxus' face off that brief look we saw before, did you design Straxus almost two years in advance, or is this just a massive coincidence and I'm insane??  :)

I think I wanted to reconcile the old design with the classic look, so did that through the battle mask.
