Arrow-Laurel Lance Redesign by Comicbookguy54321
Arrow-Laurel Lance Redesign
If you haven't watched the latest episodes of Arrow ***SPOILER WARNING!!!!!!!!!**

So I just finished the 2nd episode of Season 3 of Arrow (Its my fav show ever) and since Sara's (Caity Lotz)  death in Episode 1 its probably inevitable that Laurel (played by Katy Cassidy) will become "The Canary" to get revenge for her sisters death. There have already been some heavy hints and with the character of Ted Grant AKA Wildcat being introduced on the show (the creators have stated "he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance's arc during the season") it is very likely he will train Laurel to become a fighter (she already seems to have some fighting skills)

So I decided to imagine how I would like to see Laurel when she suits up as Black Canary! 

I went with a sort of corset look similar to the bodice Catwoman wore in Batman Returns. I also added the jacket Sara gave Laurel at the end of season 2. I decided to give her shorts instead of her costume riding into her crotch area (it's just a little more practical) I gave her fishnets because I feel like every superhero has their iconic "thing" and Black Canary's is her fishnets! Although these aren't normal fishnets as they cover her entire leg so I guess you could call them patterned stockings lol :D I went with darker hair closer to Laurels hair color (I can't be the only one who noticed Laurels hair is getting lighter each season! Its almost blonde lol) although not brown more of a dark blonde :) I also added a mask similar to Sara's :) Hope you like

Batman Film Villains! by Comicbookguy54321
Batman Film Villains!

The Batman films have always been part of my childhood....I watched them at least 5 times everyday (had them on cassette lol) and so I decided to draw my fav villains from each movie! These were actually rather quick sketches but I'm happy with how they came out :)

First up is Jack Nicholson as The Joker from the first Batman film. Even though Heath Ledger was an amazing Joker and his acting was brilliant, but for some reason I love this Joker more! He seems like he jumped right out of the comics! He use to scare the crap out of me as a kid though!

Next is Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman from Batman Returns! I have always felt she was the epitome of Catwoman. She is far more of a Catwoman than any of the Catwoman's from the 60's show (although I do love Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt!) and she was far more "Catwoman" than Anne Hathaway who I didn't care much for. Let's not even speak about Halle Berry....that was just horrible!

I then have Jim Carrey as The Riddler from Batman Forever! Although his Riddler wasn't anything close to the comic version, I can't help but love his version. He was definitely the best part of the film for me, as it's probably my least fav of the series.

Lastly is Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy from Batman And Robin! Although this film is considered the worst, it's a guilty pleasure of mine. Yes it was cheesy and didn't feel like the other films but it felt EXACTLY like a Batman comic from the 60's/70's so to me it's just a different take on Batman (I think it failed cause it was compared to Tim Burtons darker Bat films) However critics and fans alike agree the best part of the film was Poison Ivy! She came straight from the comics and I loved her character the first time I saw her! She started my obsession with Poison Ivy. The only thing about the character I detested were some of her horrible costumes! So I chose the first costume she wears in the film (which is her costume in the comics) and wish they had kept her in it throughout! 

Anyways hope you like :D

X-Men Year One-Iceman And Psylocke by Comicbookguy54321
X-Men Year One-Iceman And Psylocke
Year One redesigns for Bobby Drake and Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock!

My idea for iceman is he is one of the youngest members of the team (16) and he is a bit of a hot head (no pun intended) He is in love with the idea of helping others but it can come off as being a bit annoying to some. He lived in a very anti-Mutant household and when he discovered his powers he tried everything to hide them from his family. Unfortunatley when they found out they wanted nothing to do with him and he sought out the help of Professor X. I don't have much to say about his design but I didn't need him to be be covered up as my versions ice powers render him almost indestructible. He also doesnt have any hair even when not in his ice form.

Next is Psylocke! My version she was born to Asian parents who couldn't afford to keep her and she was given up for adoption. She stayed in the orphanage until 18 when she was forced to leave due to her age. She lived on the streets and did what she had to do to make ends meet even if it were illegal. Because of these tough times she is very street smart and can make tactical decisions very well. Professor X discovered Betsy and offered her a place to stay and learn. She is the second oldest member of the team at 26. She is also in a relationship with Clarice Ferguson (who if you know your comics is the mutant Blink :) )
X-Men Year One-Angel And Storm by Comicbookguy54321
X-Men Year One-Angel And Storm
My year one redesigns for Warren Worthington III and Ororo Munroe!

For Angel I went with his baby blue coloured design but instead of white I went with light grey :) he is also the most attractive male of the team which means he has alot of female attention however he only has eyes for Storm :)  I didn't think I needed to change anything about his origin story except for he secretly uses the funds from his fathers company to help Charles Xavier build Cerebro and The Danger Room. In my version he is 20

For Storm I didn't want to give her a full body suit. She isn't from Egypt but is part of a Zulu tribe in the rural areas of South Africa. Doing research I found most tribes from this area don't wear to much clothing (both male and female) but I didn't want to leave her naked or have her breasts exposed so I covered her up a bit while still showing some skin (Funnily enough her first comic appearance she is wearing nothing but a loin cloth!) She is revered as a goddess and is discovered by Charles using Cerebro due to the fact she is a level 9 mutant. She isn't an official member of the X Men and only helps them out on certain occasions. In my version she is 19 :) Her and Warren start to have romantic feelings towards and begin a relationship :)
