Havok - Alex Summers by ladymadcat Havok - Alex Summers by ladymadcat
OMFG, is this an X-Men fanart? It's been a long time since I ever posted anything X-Men related here, no?
Havok is my favorite Summers brother (and the only Summers brother that I like, to be honest). I'm fond of his plasma powers, the way they work (first he needs to charge from ambient cosmic energy, the glowing thingie on his suit helps him in storing it) and the way his energy signature looks, of course :D
I wanted him to look more prettyboy-ish but the angry expression somewhat spoiled his facial features. I wouldn't want to be in the place of the one who is about to get a taste of those plasma rings :P

Has anyone else noticed that Havok's powers make him similar to a DBZ character? Not that I'm complaining because I'd love to be able to fly and shoot energy blasts.

I cannot comment on that since I have zero knowledge about the DBZ fandom. Havok, however, doesn't possess the ability to fly.

Ha ! glad to see good old Alex get some dues ! Srsly he should lead a team! I loved him in Meltdown & MutantX (I don't care , it was not all great but it definitely developped the guy!)
I hate how he got mistreated by the hacks with a hard-on for Scott, it's sad! Havok never gave a damn about that comparison & most of the time proved himself more professional than his brother...AH screw it ,check my X-factor tribute to have an Idea of what Iplanned for him

I agree. It'd be refreshing to see such a character being the leader of a team (a team which doesn't consist of overused characters). I'm glad he's going to return sometime in the upcoming issues of X-Men Legacy. It was about time!

Yes, I imagine that. It's easy to make the rings half transparent in Photoshop but with paint (no, not MS Paint, LOL), I don't even know how one can do it (by mixing the light blue with the background colors?)

I thought this was your visual representation of MK's Havik. Looks very similar, but I did some looking around, and it isn't. Very bad ass.

The effects, textures, small details... I can tell you've worked hard on this piece, I feel that you've done well in all aspects. I particularly like the teeth, it's usually something people neglect or just don't get to look realistic, but you gave even those alot of TLC.

I'm very glad you like how the teeth look, they're one of the most critical elements in the pic (or any of my pics, where it's the case). They always need some enhancing work, either extra highlights or shadows.

Cyclops has not one, but two brothers. But Havok is more badass than Cyclops and Vulcan together :D
BTW, I'm pretty sure this character is the reason for the spelling of Havik's name - Since the "k" usually replaces the "c" in the MK universe, "Havoc" would've been "Havok" - but Midway probably knew about the X-Men character so they decided to name their Cleric of Chaos "Havik" (pronounciation is the same anyway). I even remember this being debated at the MK boards back when MKD came out :)

Fanfic reject, yes, you summed him up perfectly. I just call him a poor man's Exodus. They even dared to make his power signature yellow!

He's gorgeous. Awesome art and special effects! I like the danger sign in the background. Looks like he's defending or attacking something important.

What does the plasma do? Electric shock?
Reply
:iconladymadcat:
ladymadcat Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you :) I wanted him to look menacing, as he really needs that nowadays, when he's in the middle of a huge fight in Shi'Ar space, against his evil brother Vulcan and his forces. I hope Havok and Polaris will eventually kill that bastard!
I think his plasma burst has rather a melting effect (sudden rise of temperature) than an electric shock on the victim. In one of the comics (I checked it for reference pics), he causes the flatscan aggressor's pistol to melt into his hand - ouch! (Wikipedia or Comicvine has a much better explanation of Havok's powers and how they work. I like it how they describe it in details.)

You've made Havok look powerful. I just remember the sweet surfer dude from the evo series so I'm not menaced yet.
So they're not decimated? Is Vulcan the the long lost brother.

:iconladymadcat:
ladymadcat Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, he is, sadly. He's quite a bit of an Exodus-ripoff IMO (introduced as someone overly powerful, often depicted with a similar power signature), but that's not the reason I hate him. He's the power-hungry imbecile who wants to conquer and destroy everything and everyone, while he's just an emo kid on the inside. I can't stand characters who are nothing more than an outburst of anger.
Havok retained his powers, and Polaris got hers back via Apocalypse's technology (he wanted to make her into one of his horsemen but he got defeated, fortunately Lorna's powers stayed :))

pffft that blood of Apocalypse shit ...Blood of Apocalypse was a joke of a story. His lack of build and crappy unrealistic characters truly killed any sort of grandeur that such a return should have had for Apocalypse who we haven't seen in years & still has the most potential as a villain So you'd expect his return to be all bad ass and a pretty big deal. But instead what you have is a convoluted story line without much conflict, pretty bad art, and overall an awesome villain that looks like a complete joke..I'll Always say this: BADASS APOCALYPSE IS THE ONLY TRUE WAY TO WRITE APOCALYPSE! & NO! Gambit is not a fucking moron who would never volunteer to become a horseman! Havok is not a boot-kissing rookie who bows to Emma fr...I mean Paris Hilton or Douchelops!& Why is everyone obsessed with making Polaris crazy or a wuss, can't the poor girl have break & kick ass like in Dark Seduction or X-Factor? Mystique is in the x-men...TIME OUT ! DOES NOT COMPUTE! WHY NOT PUT SABRETOOTH WHILE YOU'RE AT IT! Oh wait, they did...

I didn't enjoy Milligan's run AT ALL. The characterization was all off, the plots were lame and nearly nonsensical, and he didn't even use his CAST. He had a guest-star for each arc that ended up taking over the book. The sad part is that he wrote the perfect Sinister origins comics.... The saddest part is that they got the awesome Cable & Deadpool series to do a tie-in. They honestly should have had Fabian Nicieza write Blood of Apocalypse in Cable & Deadpool ( srsly Cable not being involved is CRAP! It's like the Joker being back & no mention of Batman for fuck sake) and not that F*** Milligan do it, he totally wasted a golden opportunity...Thank god for XML II! it was the best x-men story in years, & it was a video game... Tragic when a game is more respectful to the characters than the "source"...

Yep, the Blood of Apocalypse was pretty bad. Burnt looking Gambit with snot powers......give me a break :/ And the lovely Leper Queen, what an overrated joke :puke:

My sis played XML II (I don't have the patience for anything other than fighting games) back in the day and the gameplay didn't look half bad. The story was cool and the cutscenes were awesome. I wonder if this new X-Men game that's in the making will be any good...

Maybe Scott's family sprang forth from the loins of Exodus. :D

I don't know much about the storyline other then his poor pregnant mom was killed in front of his father. Sad.


Giddy up Polaris, yee haw.
