Talking I'm Redesigning the DC Universe...

I've been reimagining DC character designs for over twenty years now, my first being in the 2nd grade when I thought Batman should have a full face mask ala Jean Paul Valley [who was making waves at this point in the 90's]. What I'd like to do here in this thread is show how I would interpret DC's icons and some of the 3rd and 4th stringers too while I'm at it. I'm sure villains will come into play sooner than later, but opening up I'd like to begin with mostly heroes. After I thought about it for a bit, I think I'll actually do the universe of characters and reimagined concepts I made for my 52 title DCU comic line from another thread.

I'm gonna start off with a character I've always thought had a lot of potential visually: Green Arrow. The design I came up with is inspired in part by his Golden Age look that included red trim, his current DCYou look with the symbol, and his duds in the Arrow tv series. Let me know what you think! Crits always welcome!



Dunno who's gonna be next, probably somebody like GA I've never toyed with much until now. If there's a concept or character from the list I linked earlier you want to see sooner than later please let me know! Comments greatly appreciated!

Love it!

One or two suggestions. I reckon this design would suit well the shoulder pads that are in Arrow in season 4. Also I think the logo should be the same dark green as his legs as opposed to introducing another green. Maybe even have a red trim around the outside of the arrow logo (like supergirl has a yellow trim around her logo on the TV series). Still love this design though!

As for next, I reckon Flash and Zoom would be cool.

I never cared for shoulder pads and it would've made the design look more short sleeved than sleeveless. I played with the symbol a bit, and I even tried the red trim around it, but to me a guy calling himself Green Arrow has the right to wear more than two shades if he wants. Believe it or not the mask is a few shades different as well just less noticeable.

I actually started on the Flash already but I'm trying to think outside the box a little more. Trying to do things I haven't already done a dozen times over...

Superman will be next with an inspired costume. I'm sure everyone will see the inspiration the second they see it...

Ah fair enough, each to their own. I've always tended to like shoulder pads myself. And I do see your point there.

Yeah, you do raise a fair point there. I've just always been one of those guys who've liked sticking with 2-3 colours. But I guess it worked out well for characters such as Parallax.

Yeah, I suppose you're right. Best to do people you've not really done as much.

I wanted to add white to Superman's costume, similar to Powergirl/Superwoman. Went the full monty and took out yellow altogether, and came up with this. Truth, justice, and what's left of the American way...

Dunno if what I've done for the Flash is what I want for this 'line' of characters. Still working on possibilities for him. I am however, working on something for Billy Batson/Capt. Marvel. Nobody's gonna make me call him Shazam lol

That looks similar to what I'm doing with my Superman project I'm doing. White chest with blue suit. Looks pretty good. Can't wait to see the next.

I can go ahead and tell you, it's NOTHING that you would expect. And it's based on another version of the Billy Batson character somewhat from a popular Elseworlds mini series. At least in concept.

Flash was kinda hard to rework, wanted to make it two toned but try and keep it simple. I had planned on making him like living lightning but I've done that kinda thing before. Batson will be next... just reworking a couple minor details...

With Superman going back to having a secret ID again, in my universe anyway, a sacrifice will have to be made by another hero if not Superman. Cosmic balance if you will. Maybe the Spectre helps Superman regain his secret ID. Billy Batson steps up and transforms from Shazam back to his regular self for all the media to witness.

"I was a nobody until I got super powers. I'm done being vulnerable and human..." he transforms once again into the adult champion of the wizard but in a t-shirt costume similar to what Superman had taken up.

"Thought about changing the alias to something like Red Marvel... but you know what... there's nothing wrong with the name Billy. How 'bout Billy Marvel?" he asks the audience who immediately draw comparisons to Billy Idol.

Ooh now I do like this concept! One thing though, for some reason the gloves are a bit off putting, I feel it doesn't match the less is more look employed by the rest of the costume.

He's got gold bracers underneath, the gloves just tie it all together with the black pants.

Eh personally I'd have left both out, but it still works I suppose. I reckon it'd look good on paper.

I've got Batman, GL, and Wonder Woman finished. Just gotta separate the group into individual shots.

I'd like to tell you this is inspired by the Burton Batman films all black design for Batman, or even Cassandra Cain's suit [which is probably a safer bet], but in all honesty I forgot how cool an all black bat-suit could look until Jim Gordon jumped out of the Bat-Mecha sporting his bodysuit. Here's my Batman, and yes, he's wearing the full face mask just like 2nd grade me thought he should...



And for the time being, try to pretend half the characters aren't wearing the same type of boot. If it bugs you THAT much, just tell yourself like underwear on the outside, capes, and high collars, this is just another fad in the superhero suits of their day LOL

And on the off chance Billy Marvel reverts back to being a kid again and a more traditional champion of the wizard is what he's transformed into when he says the word...
