Joshua ‘Sway’ Swaby woke up and chose it’s time to wreck Marvel fans. On January 5, the famous comic artist tweeted his variant covers of X-Men’s Storm and Devil’s Reign’s Luke Cage.

Swaby revealed the covers for Storm and Luke Cage first, and as expected, fans are losing it at the artists’ personal touch to their suits.

X-Men #8 Variant Cover of Storm oozes a powerful, majestic aura. With thunder and lightning all around the superhero, as she flies high, the cover gives Storm great limelight.

Check out Storm below:

As fans retweeted the cover in awe of the impeccable style with the superhero’s power being in the face, Swaby shared his thought process while creating the cover. He gave Storm’s classic costume and wanted to show her “beauty and dominance.”

Next, the comic artist released Devil’s Reign #4 Variant cover of Luke Cage. The superhuman strength and the buff body with a low-angle point-of-view of the cover bowled everyone over the incredible skills Swaby possesses.

Luke Cage wears a tight-fitting, torn yellow t-shirt, gazing down to give powerful, dominating vibes. Check out the cover below:

Swaby also shared that he took inspiration and purposely made him “look hot.” Judging by the many fan reactions on Twitter, the artist achieved it 100%.

Meanwhile, Swaby’s six Variant covers for Marvel’s Black History Month will be released throughout February.

Devil’s Reign’s #4 and Avengers #53 will be released on February 19. A week later, on February 16, X-Men #8 Storm and Dark Ages #5 will go on sale. February 23 will then see the release of the last two Variant covers featuring Iron Man #17 and Captain America/Iron Man #4.
