One Punch Man illustrator Yusuke Murata unveiled a piece of art featured the coolest looking Genos fans have ever seen:
Teasing the next ultra packed chapter of the ONE's original manga at 137 pages, Murata's sketch of Genos is fierce and incredibly detailed. The publisher of the manga celebrated this even further by fully illustrating the scene and multiplying its coolness factor by 100:

For those unfamiliar with One Punch Man, the series follow Saitama, a regular working Joe who one day puts a stop to a violent villain attack. After this fight Saitama is inspired to become a hero. Training his body hard everyday, he's eventually granted with extreme strength. Looking for a worthy opponent, Saitama joins the Hero Association in the hopes of fighting them. But every fight he gets into ends after a single punch!
Forced to wander through life increasingly bored of his supreme power, Saitama has become hilariously disconnected with the world of action around him. In fact, the subject of this sketch Genos, becomes Saitama's disciple entirely by happenstance.
The series manga is currently in the midst of the fan-favorite "Monster Association" arc which not only introduces many of the powers of the S-Class heroes, but features many monsters with comparable spectacular powers. It's also notable for fans because it's the first long term story in the arc with many fights and stories beforehand only lasting a short time.
One Punch Man started life as a webcomic by series creator ONE in 2009. After going viral, surpassing seven million hits in June 2012, illustrator Yusuke Murata approached ONE about redrawing the series for a release in Shuiesha's Weekly Young Jump spin-off webcomics. Thirteen volumes of the series have been released as of this date.
VIZ Media bought the rights to distribute the manga in English, and the series was later adapted into a 12 episode anime series from Madhouse. The series first aired in Japan in 2015, and later debuted its English language broadcast on Adult Swim's Toonami block in 2016.
