Welcome to day 6 of Character Appreciation Week, my friends. Today I’m serving up a Hellova slab of all-man meat with a hefty side of sexy Scottish charm. TRIP, the leader of the Unrivaled Alliance is in the house! Who’s your daddy, now? LOL!
While Trip is fairly new to the Class Comics universe, he’s certainly made quite an impression on the fans. Making his very first appearance in Naked Justice: Beginnings #1, he immediately caught everyone’s attention with his stunning, mature good looks and undeniable charm.
In some ways, Trip is physically similar to Deimos – they’re both beautifully muscled, hung and hairy beasts — but in persona, they couldn’t be more different. Trip is always in a good mood, Deimos is a grouch. And while Trip’s an amazing leader to the Unrivaled Alliance, he doesn’t let his enormous responsibilities wear him down.
Maybe it’s his maturity that helps to temper him – I figure Trip’s in his mid 40s, and that means he’s had some experience living life. I think his maturity is what makes him so frikkin’ sexy. Clearly this character is very sure of himself, completely comfortable in his own skin and with his vast telepathic powers (which we will absolutely see more of in Naked Justice: Beginnings #3). He’s the perfect balance to NJ’s exuberant youth and often immature silliness. Trip knows how to handle NJ, and he proves that in Naked Justice: Beginnings #1 by helping our ginger hero to finally get a grasp on his Egyptian-born super powers.
There is still so much to learn about Trip and the other members of the Alliance, and given their popularity, I’m quite certain that I will want to explore all of them individually beyond the current NJ: Beginnings series. In particular, I’d love to see Trip in his younger years, and to see what led him to form the Unrivaled Alliance… because he did put the team together.
My favorite part of Naked Justice: Beginnings #2 is when Trip pulls out his favorite dildo “Nessie” and goes to town. It’s such a fabulous little moment, beautifully illustrated by the amazing Jacob Mott. It’s sexy and it’s fun and it’s quite innocent. I completely love that!! In my mind the scene perfectly captures Trip’s playful attitude and undeniable sex appeal.
For today’s pin-up, I tried to capture that fun side of Trip… and while Nessie is absent from this image, Trip’s sense of unabashed sensuality isn’t… and really, that’s just the way we like him. Sexy and spurtin’! LOL! XD You’ll notice that as with Deimos, I also did up a “Shaved Variant” version of Trip, just for the fun of it! HA! HA! HA!
Enjoy this steamy Scottsmen my friends, and I’ll see you all back here tomorrow for Day 7, the final round up of Character Appreciation Week. Have a wonderful Saturday evening!
Much love to all!
