FREEDOM FORCE SKINS - Q THRU Z


THE RAINBOW RAIDER

One of the last members of the Silver Age Flash's illustrious Rogues' Gallery, The Rainbow Raider was Roy G. Bivolo, who basically became a costumed criminal because he was colorblind, using all the technology he had acquired to help him see color (so he could become a painter) to rob banks and battle The Flash. Well, I've seen lamer motivations, but Roy's sure got a cool costume though, and he could use color to affect a target's mood, travel on beams of colored light and, of course, shoot colorful and rather painful lasers.

THE RED BEE

What can you say about the Red Bee that hasn't already been said. Rick Raleigh waged his war on crime armed with his wits and two trained bees. We're talking either seriously cool or seriously insane. You be the judge.

STARDUST THE SUPER WIZARD

Stardust could easily give the Spectre or Thanos a run for their money. He appeared in Fox Publications' "Fantastic Comics," and his adventures were definitely akin to those Bernard Bailey made for the Spectre. Stardust once stopped a plot hatched by Fifth Columnists and Martian invaders by creating a duplicate Earth and letting the Martians disintegrate it, along their traitorous allies.

THE STEEL FIST

Timothy Slade became the Steel Fist in five adventures in the pages of Blue Circle Comics. He had one fist clad in a heavy steel glove. Of course, this made his adventures a tad heavy-handed (rimshot).

SUPER PRESIDENT

President James Norcross was caught in the "fallout of a cosmic storm" and gained super-powers (including the power of flight) and fights crime in as Super President. Lord knows how he managed to get away from the press long enough to do that though, even in a cartoon (which was originally broadcast in 1967).

TARANTULA I

DC Comics promoted the Tarantula's few seventies appearances by calling him "the original Web-Slinger." The Tarantula was actually writer Jonathan Law. The Tarantula was a good fighter and his costume gave him the ability to walk up walls. He also had a special web gun. This is the Tarantula's original costume (which was apocryphally designed by Dian Belmont). His regular outfit (introduced in the pages of All-Star Squadron) can be found at the Psycho-Pirate's Gold & Silver Gallery.

THE TEN-EYED MAN

Philip Reardon was injured in Vietnam when a grenade fragment hit him between the eyes. When he returned to the states and became a warehouse guard, he tussled with some thieves and inadvertantly fought the Batman as well, which prevented either of them from stopping a bomb the thieves had planted. Reardon's retinas were burned out as a result, but a Dr. Engstrom reconnected his optic nerves to his fingertips, enabling him to see through them and carry out several failed campaigns of vengeance against the Batman (and Man-Bat).

THE TERROR

The Terror is the greatest criminal of the twentieth century...and possibly a little bit of the nineteenth. He has worked with Hitler, Stalin and faced off against Teddy Roosevelt. He once tried to punch out Mount Rushmore for revenge!

I used the Male_Basic_Tall_Teen mesh to duplicate the Terror's elderly scrawniness. The mask doesn't come close to duplicating his hood, but I figger at least we've got the Terror now until a proper mesh comes out.

THAROK OF THE FATAL FIVE

Tharok is the leader of the Fatal Five, arch-enemies of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He was a petty criminal who accidentally had half of his body vaporized by Science Police officers. He was saved when a robotic body half was grafted onto him, which in turn also gave Tharok great intelligence.

This is my own interpretation of Tharok's robot half, given the limitations of the mesh and the fact that it rarely is seen the same way twice in the comics.

THE THORN I (a.k.a. ROSE AND THE THORN)

Rose Canton used the sap of a jungle root to give herself both superpowers and a virtual split personality known as The Thorn. She battled the original Flash, and was later cured of her affliction by the Amazons on Paradise Island. After marrying Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern, Rose's dual personality resurfaced in the form of Alyx Florin. An accidental fire made Green Lantern think his new wife was dead, but she had actually fled, later leaving two children to be adopted. The children grew up to be Jade and Obsidian of Infinity, Inc. In a later battle with the Green Lantern and Infinity, Inc., Rose's personality resurfaced enough to force the Thorn to commit suicide rather than kill her husband and children.

THE THUNDERER

Also known as The Black Avenger, The Thunderer was really ham radio buff Jerry Carstairs, who used technology to amplify his voice and scare the beejeezus out of the bad guys. You'd think that would work maybe about once, but I guess villains back in the golden age were a superstituous and cowardly lot...

THUNDERFIST

Thunderfist was a member of the British WWII superteam known as the Crusaders (the Marvel Comics' equivalent of DC's Freedom Fighters). He wore special gauntlets that gave him super-strong punches with almost explosive force. He battled the Invaders when the Crusaders were tricked into believe that the preeminent super-team of the time had turned traitor, when in fact the Crusaders themselves had been duped into working for the Nazis.

TINYMAN

Tinyman was District Attorney Jack Baker, and is one of the few super-villains to completely reform and become a super-hero. He was originally captured by Captain Marvel II during an armored car heist. Upon his release from prison he worked his way up from circus freak to district attorney (like many D.A.'s nowadays still do). He worked with Elasticman for a very short time before he finally decided to reform, but never committed any criminal acts with him.

Tommy's natural intelligence, scientific aptitude and curiosity allowed him to rise through the ranks of the Planeteers, eventually becoming the epitome of what a Space Planeteer should be.

THE TOP

Roscoe Dillon was always fascinated by toy tops, so it wasn't surprising when he turned to them as a motif for criminal enterprise. As the Top, he spun his way into the Flash's Rogue Gallery. Eventually his spinning activities affected his brain, giving him mental powers. His brain was also somehow affected by the Flash's super-speed vibrations, which lead to his death.

To be honest, this is definitely not my best skin. The concentric circles on the Top's outfit seemed like they would be easy to construct, but they were a bit of a nightmare at times. This is the best I can do right at the moment, but I'm going to redo the skin in the future when I get a bit more skilled at Photoshop.

TUATARA

Tuatara is a member of the Global Guardians, and has a third eye that gives him the ability to see the future.

This was my first attempt at an original skin and it shows. The colors are correct, but a little off-hue, which causes a little clashing. Sometime I'll have to redo so the green is a little darker to offset the brightness of the yellow. And hopefully by then someone will come out with a mesh for heroes with fins on their heads, too.

VULCAN

Vulcan was a descendant of the Roman God of Fire, and could control all fire, flame and heat. He could fly, project fire, was super-strong and was virtually bulletproof (for his heat and flames always melted bullets before they hit him). He was a fixture in Super Mystery Comics for over three years.

ZYKLON

Zyklon (German for "Cyclone") was a Nazi agent who was given super-speed by the scientists of the Third Reich. He has attempted to kill the heroine Liberty Belle (who was after Zyklon for the murder of her friend Tom Revere) and he and Baron Blitzkrieg attempted to heist the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia in order to use it to destroy the city. Needless to say, the All-Star Squadron stopped this threat, and Zyklon found himself to be really no match for the combined speeds that Johnny Quick and the Golden Age Flash could reach. He and the Baron did manage to escape, and Zyklon has not been heard from since.
