How did Bruce do this for so many years? Then I remember. He did it with discipline. Willpower. Psychosis. And the painkillers that are about to shut his liver down for good. I’m congratulating myself for getting out while I’m still young and can hopefully recover…when I remember something else. Others out there, fighting against impossible odds, for their city, for their families, even for me… They’ve taught me that, as long as there are people in need and we have the capability to help them…then that’s what we do.
Iron Fist #15, page 11 by John Byrne & Dave Cockrum & Dan Green. 1977.
Dave Cockrum at the direction of Jim Shooter, redrew the faces of the X-Men in this issue of Iron Fist. Specific to this page, he also drew the “Fang” costume as John Byrne originally drew Wolverne’s regular costume.
To quote JB:
"I drew Wolverine in his usual duds, and editorial had them redrawn as the Fang outfit. Lot of redrawing on that issue. Virtually none of the X-faces are mine. Since it was my "audition" for UNCANNY, it seemed very odd to allow Dave [Cockrum] such liberties. At the time, I asked if he was going to redraw all the faces in the regular title once I came aboard."
