Jim Lee hasn't worked on the X-Mn since the 1990's, but now he's returning, to honor of his former Justice League collaborator Geoff Johns's birthday.

Johns, who previously wrote several X-Men stories in Ultimate X-Men, X-Men: Millennial Visions, and Muties, posted on Instagram an illustration of Colossus by Jim Lee, done for the writer's birthday. The post also explains that Colossus is Johns's favorite Marvel character.


Thanks @jimleeart :) My favorite @marvel character -- Colossus!
