Sly Rax And Vanessa Warfield Idenitfied On Action Man Revolution #1 Variant Cover

More images are surfacing that showcase the new M.A.S.K. agents for IDW's upcoming Revolution and M.A.S.K. comic books. In fact, since the day we were teased with the new character designs back in June, I've been dying to see more images of M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M. in action. Just today, we were surprised with some new sketches of characters from both teams and I also confirmed a discovery of a couple V.E.N.O.M. agents in a new variant cover. surprised us today with two penciled sketches that were displayed on Facebook. The first shows the M.A.S.K. team flying through the air while taking heavy fire from some unknown assailants. The sketch shows all four agents from the June design teaser, predominantly Matt Trakker. I'm not quite sure what the action represents, maybe falling from above or jumping from the scaffold where the bad guys are standing. I do like the abnormal angles at which the characters are shown.

Also revealed by was a shot of a scowling Miles Mayhem with his Viper mask in the foreground. It appears his mask might be on some kind of recharging dock with some hoses and cables jetting out from the back and glowing effects shown at the contact points. If I'm correct, this already reveals more than we've known about V.E.N.O.M. as the animated TV series as we never revealed any recharge mechanism like the energy room that M.A.S.K. had inside Boulder Hill.

And then last night as I was sifting through Twitter, I came across this cover for the upcoming Action Man Revolution one-off book posted by cover artist Drew Johnson. I have never read the Action Man series so I don't know much about the other characters in his universe. The two agents on either side of him below the Transformer caught my eye and I went back to those teaser images of the M.A.S.K. characters. After comparing the images and confirming through a solid source, my hunch was correct as these characters are the new Sly Rax and Vanessa Warfield!! Here's a side-by-side shot so you can see the similarities...

Now, these are of course two different artists and different environments so the colors are not exact but you can tell the masks and uniforms are similar. I believe this cover is a variant as the subscription cover is already posted on PreviewsWorld. This really excites me that Rax and Vanessa could very well make an appearance in the Action Man Revolution #1 which will be released on October 26.

We'll post more images as we spot them, but tell me what you think of the new sketches and this variant cover with Rax and Vanessa in the comments!
