When it comes to Marvel
, Todd McFarlane
is probably best known for his work on the Spider-Man
comics. In the 90's he played a large role in revitalizing the character and even launched a new title for the character that he did both the writing and art for.
however wasn't the only Marvel title he worked on or the only Marvel character he drew. Incredible Hulk
was actually the first title for Marvel he began doing a regular stint on from 1987 to 1988, working with writer legendary writer Peter David
Over the years McFarlane showed us his version of many Marvel based characters including the X-Men, Captain America, Fantastic Four
and of course Venom
that he helped create.
Since those early days, McFarlane
has gone on to do a lot in the industry including being a founding member of Image Comics as well as launching his own Toy Company called McFarlane Toys
. In the past year McFarlane even secured the rights from Warner Bros. to produce DC Comic based action figures
, another comic book company he did art for back in the 80's and 90's.
Just today McFarlane
posted on his Instagram this image featuring art he did of Wolverine
. With the art he posted the following:
Would make a cool action-figure. McFarlane Toys does McFarlane. We can wish.
Now Todd can wish all he wants. but I don't think there is much chance McFarlane Toys
could take the Marvel toy license from Hasbro
. However, WHAT IF
Hasbro did a sub-line of Artist Inspired Marvel Legends
figures specifically based on McFarlane's art? Perhaps they could even bring Todd himself, independent from his company as a consultant for the sub-line?
Let us know what you think in the COMMENTS SECTION

do comic book artist inspired Marvel Legends figures, and besides McFarlane, which artists and their work would you like to see turned into action figures?
