A while ago, I created this Justice League banner after featuring the last original member in my Super Sunday series. It turned out to be pretty popular on both twitter and facebook so I’m posting it here again.
I always planned to make one for the Avengers if I ever featured all of the characters but I wasn’t that interested in posting Black Widow or Hawkeye. However, I had still completed a lot of Marvel characters so I figured it may be fun to make a banner just for them.
One of my favourite scenes in the Avengers movie involves the big fight scene where the camera pans around each member so with server maintenance happening, I spent the better part of the evening going through my old costumes and creating a couple of new ones.
I have to say, it turned out a lot better than my previous attempt.
I’ve been meaning to do this guy for a while now, especially since I’ve published the other founding members of the Justice League but one thing stopped me – the male orc model. As with other Supers, I’ve created his body using a number of layers. I think he currently wins the record for most layers used. I was hoping to use Thrall’s updated model in WMV but since he’s listed as an NPC, I couldn’t change his armour so after playing around with a few of the poses, here’s what I’ve come up with.
Martian Manhunter, also known as J’onn J’onzz and John Jones, is a superhero from the planet Mars and the last surviving member of his race. A martian holocaust killed his wife and daughter, nearly driving him mad, until he was brought to Earth in an accident caused by scientist Saul Erdel. His natural abilities include super-strength, super-speed, invulnerability, flight, shape-shifting, intangibility and telepathy.
Whatever I know about his character (and many others) I learnt from Smallville. Super episodes were always some of my favourites to watch. It’s a shame Batman and Wonder Woman didn’t make it into the series though.
His costume is almost made up entirely of cloth.
Here are the Justice League founding members together again.
