FREEDOM FORCE SKINS - A THRU E


AIRMALE

Professor Stephens became the masked hero known as Airmale. He could fly, was very strong, smart and fast, and had one of the singularly most annoying sidekicks in history: Stampy. How annoying was Stampy? When Airmale wouldn't believe that Stampy had found a camera that took pictures of the future, and a picture indicated the train they were going to take the next day was going to get wrecked, Stampy CHLOROFORMED Airmale so he'd miss the train. Good initiative on Stampy's part, I guess, but lousy execution.

AIR WAVE I

Air Wave I was really District Attorney Larry Jordan. He could pick up virtually any radio broadcast or listen in on telephone lines with the receivers in his unique helmet. He can also travel along telephone lines at "the speed of electricity" using special skates in his boots. He could also climb walls and generate magnetic attraction over short distances. Larry Jordan was killed when criminals he had convicted as D.A. sought vengeance on him and his family. His wife Helen briefly wore his costume to avenge his memory.

ARM-FALL-OFF BOY

Now if this isn't the strangest character to do a skin of, I don't know who is. The legendary Arm-Fall-Off Boy appeared only once, in Secret Origins #46, in a story detailing the origin of the Clubhouse of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He was one of the very first group of Legionnaire applicants, and he umm didn't quite make it onto the team for some strange reason. While, at least until someone comes up with a special mesh, it's pretty difficult to really simulate his one super-power in Freedom Force, it is definitely one of the weirdest ones anyone ever had. Arm-Fall-Off Boy had the special ability to remove his left arm and club a bad guy with it. No, really. He did. Honest.

This skin is the closest I can come to simulating the greatness that is Arm-Fall-Off Boy. He's an alien and actually very textured, as well as being kinda tubby and pear-shaped. The skin makes him look like something Mike Grell created back in the seventies, but that is pretty far from the case, as Gerard Jones, Curt Swan and Ty Templeton were responsible for creating him.

THE ATOM

I know...it's just the Atom. But no, it's really not just any Atom, as this is the seasoned battle veteran Ray Palmer from JLA #13 & 14. In Grant Morrison's classic "Rock of Ages" storyline, this Atom, with the help of Green Arrow Connor Hawke, killed Darkseid. Yes, that Darkseid. Let's see Hank Pym try that with Thanos sometime. Can you say "squish"?

ATOM-JAW

Atom-Jaw was originally Mr. Preston, a scientist injured in an atomic experiment at Oakridge during WWII. Dr. Gerald Safion performed a miraculous operation on him to save his life, replacing half of his destroyed face with Compound X-4. Mr. Preston went insane with rage upon seeing his new face, finding that his new metal jaws could destroy metal, bricks, almost any substance. He regained his composure and went back to his position, but disappeared after the war. Years later, Captain Marvel II was beset by the fury of Atom-Jaw. The criminal known as Doctor Fate freed Atom-Jaw from custody, but Atom-Jaw betrayed the villain and has done his best to go straight.

THE BADGER

Norbert Sykes was a Vietnam veteran whose experiences as a P.O.W. led him into a deep psychosis. While at an asylum in Wisconsin, he beats up some teenagers who were killing ducks, prompting him to become a vigilante, and does so, taking the identity of the Badger whenever his reason loses its grip on reality. His mania does give him great strength at times, making him a formidable foe of evil.

THE BEARDHUNTER

Ernest Franklin was unable to grow facial hair due to a genetic deficiency, so naturally he waged war on all men with beards. Ernest left his strange little world of wrestling magazines, shaving cream, body oil and murder when he was hired to kill the bearded Niles Caulder, the Chief of the Doom Patrol. One does not get between the Chief and his chocolate.

BIRDMAN

Birdman was really Ray Randall, a secret agent transformed by exposure to solar radiation into the winged super-hero. Birdman can fly (obviously) and fire blasts of solar energy. He is assisted in his efforts by his giant blue eagle Avenger. He had a partner named Birdboy for a short while, and lately has taken up the legal profession as Harvey Birdman, Attorney-at-Law (which he excells at more than super-heroing).

THE BLACK OWL

Well, the first thing you might notice about the Black Owl is that he wears a costume that isn't black and doesn't resemble an owl. Doug Danville, "society glamour boy," originally wore an owl mask with a tuxedo before adopting his semi-skin-tight costume. After several years of crimefighting, the Black Owl gave his costume and responsibilities as a crimefighter to Walt Walters (the father of teenage crimebusters Yank and Doodle).

Blitzen is the partner of Eclair, the greatest superheroine of Belguim. She calls herself a "righteous speed demon and trust fund darling of justice," and who's to say she isn't? The Tick certainly didn't when he teamed up with her to fight Octopaganini and the Soviet Bloc Russian Cowboy.

BRAINWAVE

Henry King used his formidable mental abilities to battle the original Green Lantern and the Justice Society. When the JSA came out of retirement in the seventies, so did Brainwave, fashioning himself an illusory body and attempting to kill his enemies once again. While he was "retired," King met and fell in love with Merry Pemberton (also known as Merry, Girl of 1,000 Gimmicks) and she gave birth to a son. Henry King, Jr. took up the guise of Brainwave Jr. and joined Infinity, Inc., so as to bring some respect back to the family name.

CAPTAIN MARVEL II

Captain Marvel II was an android created by aliens of a distant world and sent to Earth to keep the peace. Assuming the identity of Professor Roger Winkle, Captain Marvel's identity is known only to young Billy Baxton (yeah, I know, but that was the kid's name). Besides being a walking encyclopedia on almost every subject known, Captain Marvel had "Astro-Boots" allowing him to move anyway he wanted, laser-beam eyes, and when he said the magic word "Split" his body came apart at the joints (and he maintained complete control over the parts, which would fly around the room, otherwise he'd be as useless as Arm-Fall-Off Boy or the current Manhunter). The word "Xam" would reunite his body.

CAPTAIN TOOTSIE

Captain Tootsie is the friend of all children, and killer of bears, gorillas and many other dangerous creatures. He has great courage and a physical fitness fueled by Tootise Rolls (which, somehow, have failed to make me similarly physically fit), and no super powers. He does however have The Secret Legion...three kids who help him out on his adventures (and vice versa). Fatso, Fisty and Rollo are names best left to history perhaps.

COLOR KID

Ulu Vakk was one of the many people who have tried out for membership in the Legion of Super-Heroes. His ability to change the color was judged not to be sufficient to gain membership, but he did join up with several other rejected applicants to form the Legion of Substitute Heroes.

This skin unfortunately does not accurately reflect his costume because of the basic limitations of the skin (his boots should be half-white & half-black, but unfortunately it won't show up that way).

COSMIC KING

Little is known of the 30th Century super-villain known as Cosmic King, other than he is a Venusian who was exiled from the planet when a laboratory accident gave him the power to transmute inanimate objects (an ability that the Venusians regarded as inherently evil). As a founding member of the Legion of Super-Villains, he has gone up against the Legion of Super-Heroes on several occasions. He has no skill at hand-to-hand combat, but his ability to transmute inanimate objects (in elemental composition, structure and form) knows no limitations.

The second Crimson Avenger made only a single appearance, in World's Finest Comics #131. Dr. Albert Elwood took the name of the former lawman to help Superman, Batman and Robin battle the Octopus Gang. For the most part, he was more of a hindrance than a help, but the Crimson Avenger did eventually save the day!

Soon after though, T.N.T. was killed by Fifth Columnist saboteurs, and Dan was forced to carry on alone.

Dr. Frost appeared in the pages of Prize Comics in the forties. As his name implies, he uses cold as a weapon, being able to generate blasts of intense cold and create shields of ice for protection. He had an on-again, off-again relationship with the authorities, who often saw him as a meddler in their affairs (even though he was almost always right on the mark with his conclusions).

He has assisted the Legion of Super-Heroes on several occasions, and was quite close to Shrinking Violet for many years.

ELASTIC LAD

In the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths universe, Jimmy Olsen was a bit of a putz. So things haven't really changed much, but he did have a lot more colorful adventures back then, including becoming a super-hero in his own right. Superman brought back a chest he found floating in space that contained a flask of a mysterious green liquid. Jimmy accidentally spilled the liquid on himself and found that it gave him incredible stretching powers. Rather than using them to get closer to Lucy Lane, he decides to help Superman fight crime. He has become Elastic Lad on numerous occasions, once even garnering an honorary membership in the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Basically, I just skinned Elastic Lad because I wanted to try out the new Male_Stretched mesh that Webrider came up with. It's not too shabby...my only complaint is that it's so big that it fills the character editor making it hard for me to get screen shots :)
