This story followed the "Dark Reign" arc that had run through the Marvel titles, so they wanted something big, bold and most of all, "heroic" to contrast. We started with some superhero-type designs based on the Dark Reign letter shapes, but that didn't quite do it. After a couple more colorful comic attempts, they asked for something more "typographic". With a few variations (plus metallic beveling...oooh, shiny!) we finally had it.
