Spread Eagle - Mega Man X by pierski Spread Eagle - Mega Man X by pierski
This was one of three Rejected Mega Man X Mavericks that I created for this Dueling Analogs comic. Since the online comic is so small, I wanted to put a larger version here to show more of the character's detail.

This piece was drawn in Photoshop and colored completely in Illustrator.

Good character, and the line adds to the bad ass. Though I don't get why this one was rejected, it sounds like a good one.

Because the sexual connotations of the name and how he attacks.

See it doesn't seem to be that way. Seems to just be a deal of an eagle swooping down and striking with talons or sending them out to slice and dice someone.

The term spreadeagle (also spread eagle, spread-eagle) can mean:

Spreadeagle (heraldry), a figure derived from a heraldic depiction of an eagle
Spreadeagle (position), a human position in which a person is figuratively in the same position as an eagle with its wings spread
Spread eagle (figure skating)
Blood eagle or "spread-eagle", an alleged Viking method of execution
Spread Eagle, Wisconsin
Spread-eagleism, the 19th century precursor to the term "Jingoism"
Spread Eagle (Album), a Peter Pan Speedrock album


which, is it?

Spreadeagle (position), it just has nothing to do with figure skating.

The great thing about this one is that my mind's ear can actually hear the X4 announcer reading that name.

"SprrrEADDD, EAgulllllllle!"

Probably some sort of explosive. A combination of carpet bombing and dive bombing. Carpet Dive?

Great design. XD

Just, could you imagine that conversation with him and X when they run into each other at the end of the level? Or lolZero? We could end up with a funnier conversation than the Zero/Blaze Heatnix dialog!

Spread Eagle: Parting is such sweet sorrow.
X: You mean that figuratively, right?
Spread Eagle: Maybe this is too deep for you.
X: Now you're just screwing with me.
Spread Eagle: Okay, now you're just making this creepy.
