I’m a kind, gentle person, avoiding violence whenever possible, really I am. You might not guess it from some of the logo designs I’ve done. Some time in the early 1990s, Marvel Licensing asked for designs with this name. I don’t know what the intended use was, perhaps X-Men villain toys?

Another marker sketch that’s much more straightforward. The inner shapes make this one also a bit hard to read, but if held in a color that would be less likely.

Someone liked version 2, but wanted it less jumbled, and this version is easier to read. These are all I have for this project, which never went to a final version, so I don’t know if someone else developed the final logo, or perhaps the project itself was dropped. I’m thinking some heavy metal band might have wanted this one…
