    There was, way back in the mists of... 2007... a recurrent meme among several comics art blogs. Reclaiming characters from their owners, I guess it could be broadly described as... people were reimagining abused characters (chiefly Supergirl) as artistic call-and-response various places, chiefly LiveJournal. In the aftermath of that, I did a similar thing on old messageboard The Engine, called REMAKE/REMODEL. They were embraced as technical exercises, bits of fun, ways to get the brain moving. I think most people's favourite was the dear late Mike Wieringo's wondrous retro-aristo Buck Rogers...

    I thought it might be an interesting thing to bring back here. So, once a week, I'll call a character, and you art types here can post images of your reinterpretation of that character. Photography and digital art is also fine, before anyone asks.

    The point is REinterpretation: remake/remodel.

    PEOPLE I DIDN'T MAKE THIS ONE UP I SWEAR. From WEIRD COMICS #6 in 1940, I bring you DYNAMITE THOR:


    Peter Thor becomes Dynamite Thor, an adventurer who wears a costume that allows him to propel himself through the air by blowing up sticks of dynamite located in his belt.



    I SWEAR TO GOD IT'S REAL

    Your task, as ever, is to re-invent that into something a 21st Century audience could enjoy.

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with, but bear in mind this is an ART thread. No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    You have one week. Go.

    I finally have time to do some more (as opposed to just have another 1/2 finished one on my desk) and this what you find? Fucker.

    And I am looking forward to the craziness sure to come.

    His name is already Peter Thor! Did he just HAVE to add another twenty pounds of weight to his mighty steel balls?

    But, but...how do his bits stay on?

    I think the artists need to answer that important question.

    er, suicide bomber ?

    Quick paint job. This is what happens when writers with no artistic talent step up.
    Dynamite THOR

    You know the crazy thing is that we actually explored such a notion of propulsion once...look up "Project Orion" on YouTube and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Which was using nukes, although a model was flown with conventional explosives. But let's not drift.

    Dynamite Thor was ahead of his time... and somehow less deadly: asshole suicide bomber takes a new and more literal meaning

    Hmmmm

    Spenceball, you should remove that. That is a pen portrait and it's strictly forbidden, might get the thread closed.

    EDIT: Thanks.
