Minor nit-picking: Magog doesn\'t appear to have the pyramid-eyeball thing on his arm like Lance does. However, it could easily be explained away that he outgrew it, moved it, internalized it, etc etc etc. It may be concealed under some part of his armor.

Interesting discussion. Personally I think Magog is just himself but if I had to pick another character he may I would say....another Superman! as thier body types are the same. (or maybe thats just the artist's style) as always good reading to you all.
