The eight Immortals! Bios- Iron Crutch!

Matt always wanted to translate it to Iron Stick, but I always thought it was better translated as Iron Crutch. It's cooler, and doesn't step on Daredevil.

Matt's Bio-
"After his spirit form had been away from his body for one week, Li Tie returned to find that his body had been destroyed, and so was forced to inhabit the nearest body‹ a hideous, diseased beggar.

Iron Crutch carries a magical staff, which he uses as a crutch and as a weapon. The staff can also perform magic acts and transmute matter. He has a gourd attached to the staff in which he concocts potions and medicines. The gourd also serves as his home, much like a genie bottle. Though handicapped he is a formidable fighter.

His color is red. His animal is a red pheasant. He is the patron of medicine and of the sick. He has a fiery temper and is easily roused to anger.

His appearance is that of a hideous leper. One leg is lame. His body is thin and shriveled."

That is one weird and uncomfortable-looking crutch.

I wonder if you could have done anything to make it look more magical. On the other hand, I suppose something with that much iron in it, being moved around by someone in that kind of shape, must have some special properties.

What were the plans for these guys? Did they operate as a team, or did each get his own story, or what?

i changed the crutch before the actual stories began. I had forgotten the initial sketch had the crutch as so huge! You'll see that I made it slimmer, so good catch Isaac!

Most of them had their own stories, that would cross over sometimes, you'll see. It sort of depended on what their individual stories demanded. The format started to shift and become short stories - Matt's got a few scripts that he began after the main 4 stories wrapped up and they were evolving into 22 page one shots about a certain Immortal, in the case of The Hermit, or arcs, as in the case of the Sage. I'd love to get back to the Immortals, I've just had no time -pencilling a book every 5 or 6 weeks and inking over George is making it so I'll have no time this year...
