Week one-twelve of Operation Graphite – theme: Quicksilver.

Shock - Silver airstream suit

Did you know that the actors who play Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Age of Ultron are both in this summer’s Godzilla remake? That just caught me as odd. As for the suit, while I left out any lightning bolts, I did like the idea of silver being a defining aspect, and perhaps some sort of high reflective suit with air channels make some sense. High speed with wind and thermal variables might call for such a metallic body suit. Goggles might be a good idea two, just think of the dry eye at those speeds.

Shock – Silver Airstream suit.


The theme selected for week one-twelve of Operation Graphite will be: Quicksilver.


For the first time, Marvel Studios, and Twentieth Century Fox will share characters. While they are all Marvel characters, different studios have feature rights to different characters and franchises, even if Marvel now has its own production studio. In both X-men: Days of Future Past, and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Scarlet Witch, and her speedy brother, Quicksilver will appear. Neither studio had exclusive┬árights, so both were able to create different versions for each movie, both coming out with in a year of each other. There has already been some internet rumblings disapproving of one or both costumes for Quicksilver, so this week our job is to redesign the look of the faster than lightning estranged son of Magneto. Can you give him a look that isn’t laughable and still evokes his comic outfit?

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, of your costume redesign for: Quicksilver.

All art work is due on Thursday, 4.24.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 4.25.13
