 Onslaught (comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Onslaught was first mentioned in Uncanny X-Men #322, in which the Juggernaut crash-landed in Hoboken, New Jersey, having been hit hard enough by Onslaught to send him across the country, with a mental block on his brain, causing him to forget who or what Onslaught actually was (as he had learned Onslaught's identity).
Onslaught was to become thought itself (an objective he had actually managed to accomplish before his demise), and force himself into the minds of every living being.
Onslaught planned to reverse this process, and channel all that energy into himself, with the Sentinel's rampage being a way to spur fear, panic, and various negative emotions, which would release scores of psionic energy, which Onslaught would then channel into himself, growing ever-stronger.

 OAFE - ML13: Onslaught BAF review
Onslaught was an interesting idea for a character that was unfortunately tied into one of the worst Marvel crossovers ever.
Onslaught's second form was designed by '90s superstar Joe Madureira, who was responsible for introducing anime stylings to American comics - which is why Onslaught v2's armor is so busy and he bears slight resemblance to Sachiel, the third angel, from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Onslaught's first form appeared to stand around 10' tall - it's hard to tell, since he never really had a body, just an illusion caused by the mingling of psychic and magnetic powers - so this size might have worked for him then.

 MUTANT WATCH X-Men xmen comics column   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
It seems to me Marvel are no longer complacent and conservative but trying to push the boundaries of mainstream comics in a way not seen since 1986.
Personally I think that Marvel has embraced what I like to consider a "post-Authority" comic marketplace, which in other words means its fine to have openly gay characters and a nice dose of violence, but most importantly trying to tie superheroes to the real world a little more.
Though this approach isn't a hit with every comic reader, I think its just a progression of what Alan Moore tried to do almost twenty years ago, which was ask what superheroes would be like in the real world, or what the real world would be like if superheroes really existed.

 The Comics Reporter
Combining straight-faced spiritualism with outsized comedy, at first glance Ben Jones creates comics close enough to those emanating from the late Providence arts collective Fort Thunder that he runs the risk of being lost in the bright light of their reflected output.
Doing battle with a giant pile of Ben Jones comics and its pen-and-ink onslaught of bizarre laugh lines and touching sentiment is one of the most daunting tasks in comics today, and perhaps the most fun.
Because of his lack of exposure to comics, let alone immersion in the arguments made on art comics' behalf, many typical nuances of terminology and valuation seem lost on Jones.
