Jidaigeki X-men: Juggernaut by genesischant Jidaigeki X-men: Juggernaut by genesischant
Marvel comics' mutant heroes reinterpreted as samurai drama characters.

CORE TEAM


VILLAINS


After finishing the X-Men, I thought it might be fun to do a few of their villains.

Juggernaut is reimagined as Kenza.

Ken Maruki is the estranged younger half-brother of Master Zenji. He was born to Zenjiro's father and a household servant. As a baby, he was entrusted to a group of mountain ascetics to avoid scandal. It was a hard life, and Ken developed a deep and profound hatred in his heart that would fuel his startling transformation.

Ken would grow exceptionally large and strong, leaving the company of other humans for years of intense training. He began to wear weights to increase his strength and stamina, meditated beneath crashing waterfalls to toughen his body, and put himself through inhuman feats of endurance to forge himself into an invincible machine. He then began to travel across Japan, searching out and defeating the strongest martial artists he could find. He made a name for himself as a one-man unstoppable force of destruction.

Now he turns his eye towards his brother who received all that he did not. He makes his way to Master Zenji and his sword school, and he will crush anyone who stands in his path.

I take it he's just ridiculously strong and nigh-invulnerable? Even so, his design looks amazing.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this series, largely due to your obvious research and true reinventions of the characters' stories. This one is absolutely perfect!
