Sparx

Third redesign of my Justice League United team.

Sparx was created by Karl Kesel, Tom Grummett and Ed Hannigan. She was part of a Canadian team called the Force Family. Her electrical powers were triggered by alien parasites. Her real name is Donna Carol Force or D.C. for short.

The second picture is her original design from the comics.

I contributed a 3-page story to the Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary anthology! Unfortunately, they rejected the third page of it because ‘Sanrio doesn’t want Hello Kitty associated with an actual cat in any way.’

So anyway, they just decided to use the first two pages and end it there. I’m including the third page here so you can see how it actually would have ended.

This was a lot of fun for me. It was nice to relax the ‘correctness’ muscles in my brain and do something kind of abstract and nonsensical. Fun shapes and colours to play with too. Also, totally inspired by Metroid. :)

Enjoy!

Flying Fox

Second redesign of my Justice League United team*

Flying Fox was created by Roy Thomas, Dann Thomas, and Michael Bair and featured in the comic “Young All-Stars” for DC Comics. He was a First Nations Canadian shaman who fought Nazis with the All-Star Squadron. He had extensive magic powers. He was created as a Batman replacement in the Golden Age, hence being a flying fox type of bat (ahem…not an actual fox that flies).

The second picture is his original design from the comics.

*I hated the first redesign after a day. This is a second, revised version of Flying Fox.

Frostbite

First redesign of my Justice League United team.

Frostbite was created by Dan Raspler and Dev Madan and featured in the comic “Young Heroes in Love” for DC Comics. He had cold related powers, was bisexual and a lifespan of over 80,000 years.

The second picture is his original design from the comics.

Justice League United
So I had this idea that I would make a Canadian justice League using ACTUAL Canadian superheroes. The New 52 version only has 3 and had to convert 2 of those (although they were good decisions!) All of DC’s Canadian heroes are Z-List heroes who have only appeared in a handful of comics. I wanted to redesign and update them to see if they could be a better and awesome Canadian League.
Adam Strange, Alanna Strange, Flying Fox, Equinox, Frostbite, Sparx and Freight Train.
There were a couple others that I considered, (Rush and Empty Vee from Wildstorm or Dark Crow from Robinson’s run on JLA) but ultimately I thought this Group of 7 (ha!) was the best combination.
So watch out for the redesigns coming up soon!
