In an alternate universe, Scar's plan never came to fruition, and he had the chagrin to witness his nephew mature into just like what he'd expect from Mufasa's side of the family - all brawn, no brain. He learned to take it relatively well though, finding refuge in passive-aggressive cynicism to make family time bearable.
Had this idea for a while, and this was voted by patrons to be brought to paper. It HAD to happen, especially since Simba makes such an adorable himbo. His uncle is both a great foil, and a great victim for size comparison shenanigans (what with being in the shallow end of the gene pool and stuff >w>)
Worry not though. Maybe SOMEONE will come along years later and turn the tables on Simbulk there?...
I felt like I could've done better with this pic... but alas, I'm in a bit of an art block lately, so that's the best I could manage while still working on my pendencies T_T
