The original sprite for Prometheus, as he's calling himself, was a based on the 32-bit sprite of X, and was something like these two. Unfortunately, the sprite's creator didn't want it being used, so I ended up replacing it with the one you see in the comic, which was created by Deccus.

Near as I can tell, it looks like he used Zero as a base sprite, modified it slightly and then added Proto Man's head and scarf from Megaman 8. In fact, later on, I ended up using Zero's 32-bit sprites when I needed to make modifications to this sprite or make my own custom Prometheus sprites.

Further, in the Cataclysm movies, one of ideas I played around with is that when Zero gets the crap beaten out of him at the end, some of his parts fall off. Proto Man picked them up and eventually added them to his own frame, making him look much like he does in this comic.

Later, another sprite option came from the avatar of forum member, ProtomanX. I was given permission to use them, but I still liked Deccus's version more.

By the way, is this the first in-comic mention of the Cataclysm by name?
