Why would you hold a gun like that and where is it pointing?

also wtf kind of gun is that. I mean at least Liefeld would try and do elaborate looking sci-fi gun. That one looks like its made of cracked concrete.

And it looks like he started drawing a pistol then decided it needed to be a cannon of some kind.

He's more generic than anything.
Say what you want, but Liefeld at least has a distinctive, terrible terrible style.

Lazy illustrator trying to force an art edit after the fact, rather than redraw.

Man that ain't nothing. Just check out the cover to Cable 153.

Doop is maybe a foot tall and is way too thin.

X-23 is maybe three feet and it looks like her ankles have been broken and her foot run over by a steamroller like a cartoon. And she's not even in her Wolverine costume (maybe something about it in the story...?)

Longshot has eight fingers! And apparently a good ten feet tall.

Armor looks to be over six foot tall.

Blink looks like she has a crushed hand.

Cable has the same stupid looking gun. And he also has four fingers on one hand. The other hand...how the hell do you hold a gun like that??

Seriously do a google search. How the hell does that see print?

Yeah.  He even has that weird Liefeld thing where most of the characters have their mouths open.

Although the thing about Longshot having eight fingers has always been the case.  He's not human.

Oh my bad. Most I know about Longshot is from the old X-Men Cartoon.

So is Cable missing a finger on one hand normally?
