STRYFE: A BRIEF HISTORY...Stryfe is the clone of Nathan Christopher Summers, the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor (a clone of Jean Grey); when the immortal mutant Apocalypse infects the infant Nathan with a techno-organic virus, a woman from the distant future introducing herself as Askani appears to Cyclops and Jean Grey, telling them that she can save the child. Once the infant Nathan arrives in the future, Askani clones the baby, hoping to salvage something if he dies. The clone's growth is greatly accelerated until he is the same age as Nathan himself. The Askani succeed in halting the spread of the techno-organic virus in Nathan's body, thereby saving his life. However, Apocalypse and his forces attack the Askani's hiding place and steal the cloned infant. Apocalypse takes the child as his own, raising him himself and naming him Stryfe, intending to use him as his next host body. As Apocalypse is about to transfer his essence into Stryfe, he discovers that Stryfe is in fact a clone, thus unfit to house his essence. A teenage Nathan and the time-traveling Cyclops and Jean confront Apocalypse, leaving him unable to transfer into any host body, thus causing his essence to discorporate. Apocalypse's second in command, Ch'vayre, raises Stryfe afterwards.

Stryfe grows up to be an insane madman, wanting vengeance on both what he thought were his real parents (Cyclops and Jean) and his spiritual parent, Apocalypse. He becomes an anarchist and terrorist rebel in the Nor-Am Pact region circa AD 3783-3806. in his alternate future. He raises an army and became a fierce opponent of both Nathan (now known as Cable) and his Clan Chosen, and the New Canaanites, a despotic regime that replaced Apocalypse's. During these wars he kills Cable's wife, Jenskot, as well as kidnapping and brainwashing their son, Tyler Dayspring.

STRYFE'S ARMOR... Well, for this custom contest, when I think of armor I think of Iron Man, Dr. Doom and other types that depend on their armor for protection and offensive weapons.
Rob Liefied was a genius at creating characters with crazy names that didn't fit the standard mold of names relating to character design and orgin. If it didn't have chrome it had to have atleast 10 pocket pouches on it and some white hair to get pass the inspectors at Liefield, Inc.

You all would be surprised to find out I didn't make this custom. I was wanting to enter another COLOSSUS...lol! It's supposed to be a secret anyways and if you know who did it, don't say nothing, they could disqualify it or give it low rating because somebody may not like certain customizers. I think the guy who did it was dastdreffie...just saying. RULES ARE RULES!!

Off? I don't see it. This is a masterpiece. I would pay big bucks for this. However did this amazing art is fast and kick some many asses.

I agree with getsa, the body porportions do look a bit off, but if I was guessing, I'd say that is because of the base figure choice (Jakks Pacific UFC figure...which, I've only bought for the use of the feet and have threatened to throw the rest away or use for some kinda junk fodder. I'd love to see ever who made this, make a Stryfe using a halfway decent base figure.

the proportion of the body parts seem a little off... but heck, those are some great chrome effect! nice paint apps! the paint apps alone is enough for me to give you a high score.
