In keeping with the decision to find their own corner of the Marvel universe, the team were keen to find a distinct visual take on all of
Midnight Suns’ characters. The more recognisable the character, we’re told, the harder this became. “Everybody knows what Iron Man looks like,” Solomon says. “So it has to look like Iron Man. But it better not look like any other version of Iron Man, because then it gets confusing.” Part of the answer was drawing from the era that inspired
Midnight Suns, in and out of comics. Wolverine is dressed in the tan variant of his suit that was an ’80s staple, while Iron Man’s armour is based on the vents and angles of the 1987 Ferrari F40.
