The theme selected for week one-seventy-nine of Operation Graphite will be: Wolverine.

How did this operation go three years without a Wolverine theme? The X-men in general have not had as much love as the rest of the Marvel Universe, but it is surprising one of my all time favorite grumpy Canadians hasn’t had his own Grey Op. Hugh Jackman recently announced that he’s putting on the claws one last time, and is asking people on Twitter what they want to see. Mostly, Hugh has been getting photoshop parodies and ideas involving properties Fox can not use; so we’ll see how that works out. My hope is for a Wolverine movie that doesn’t suck. That second one had me going for a while, then the 3rd act crash landed in stupid town. The whole X-men franchise has had its ups and downs. Over all, I think it comes out in the black, but we have two films left before the nine installments are complete.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Wolverine.

All art work is due 9 P.M. PST on Friday, 8.7.15. Submissions will be published the weekend of 8.8.15

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.

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 rights, 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

Week twenty two of Operation Graphite – Theme: New Mutant

Xavier will welcoming some new students next semester, that is unless Magneto recruits them into the brotherhood first. Here are a few of our newly created mutants ready to spring into action.

Week twenty two mutants

bruku – Virus Infinita – like Multiple Man, but Omega Powered, not as funny and turns worlds into empty voids

Micah – Mutant –  I think his mutant power is just to be stupendously distracting looking.

Shock – Shockwave – Able to summon and control electric impulses. Also able send out shock waves of concussive force.

Thank you for showing off your powers.

The theme selected for week twenty two of Operation Graphite will be: New Mutant

Next week we are going to play with the mutants in the Marvel universe. Instead of working with the more obscure team, “The New Mutants,” the mission is to create our own mutant character. For your new mutant character, think of his or her powers and name; then design the appearance of your new mutant.

Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, of your new mutant.

All art work is due on Thursday 7.5.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 7.6.12.

Mutant and proud.

Week twelve of Operation Graphite – Theme: Psylocke

You don’t need bionic eyes from Spirals Body Shop in the Mojo-verse to see why Psylocke is a popular character. Another example of the Kunoichi Principle, Sexy female ninjas are almost always cool. Add Psionic powers and you’ve got Betsy Braddock.
