Thunder was created by Jerry Ordway and Mike Manley.
Her first appearance was in 1996.
Thunder is the super-powered alter-ego of a young girl from the planet Binderaan, circa 9,000 A.D.
The power of Shazam is bestowed upon her by Captain Marvel himself.
After a mission to the 20th century, Thunder is sent to the 30th century, when pro-science attack and destroy the Rock of Eternity, a major source of all magic. After subduing some of the terrorists with the help of member of the Legion of Super Heroes she is offered membership. which accepts while continuing her mission to collect all the scattered pieces of the Rock of Eternity.
Instead of saying "Shazam" to invoke her powers she says "Captain Marvel", that's a neat little spin.
I've actually worked with Mike Manley at Warner Bros a while back on some cartoons Bruce Timm was producing. Good times!
Slowly but surely more Legionnaires are coming your way...
Peace out!


Chemical King

Chemical King real name Condo Arlik was born on the colony world Phlon. During his birth the hospital was rusted. The physicians realized that Arlik was the catalyst for these rapid oxidations and isolated him. Unable to cause harm to anyone, he spent most of his life studying chemistry so he could learn how to control his powers. Once he mastered it, he was released into the world and was inspired by the Legion to do good. He was among the Legionnaires who fought in the final stand against Brainiac 1.0.
The BG was from a web search, you can find it at I don't know the name of the artist otherwise it would be here. It worked with what I wanted to do.
I love coming up with the power FX.
I hope some Legion fans I know like it.

X-Bomb Betty

This bombastic character it's a Legion reject who could generate an explosion equal to a 150 million megaton X-Bomb. She was rejected due to the fact that she could only use this ability once. Besides why would your scientist father want to turn you into a living X-Bomb? That's messed up.
The BG it's from Shuttestock, royalty freeee...
It would appear at this point I'm drawing Legion rejects instead of real Legionnaires. 
Any thoughts on some "real" Legionnaires I haven't done and could draw next?


Spy was a prospective member of The Legion of Super Heroes, but was rejected. He had acute senses and limited telepathy. He was telepathetic, also had extra-sensory perception. Later on with other rejects he became part of the United Planets Young Heroes.
The original BG was modified from the talented mrainbowwj-d73k2qc. Visit  his Deviant Art page. 
I've enjoyed working with this particular piece a little extra. 
Spies are always so cool.

Like a leaf in the wind... 

Magnetic Kid

And to celebrate my 300th post... Enough Legion rejects, let's get back in track with real Legionnaires.
Magnetic Kid, real name Pol Krinn. He is the brother of Cosmic Boy. Magnetic Kid was a student of the Legion Academy and a member of the Legion eventually.
He is a Braalian and like all natives of Braal, has the ability to generate and manipulate magnetism. 
He is close friends with Tellus and Shadow Lass.
The BG was manipulated form the original made by taylxrr, definitely looks different. 
Arlik is next.

And a Merry Christmas present for the Legion fans. 
I wanted to play with the design of Tusker and make him a little Jack Kirby Hulk like since he is already grey like the original Hulk. I wasn't too crazy about doing the original look of this character when he tried for the Legion. The original BG was made by M Whistler, I've changed it to go better with Tusker.
Tusker, real name Horace Lafeaugh originally had the ability to extend his tusks to extreme lengths. 
He was rejected when trying out for the Legion due to his impractical powers. Years later he became a villain. Over time his powers evolved. He now had an unbreakable skeleton and enhanced durability, becoming a gray skinned behemoth. He was sent to Takron-Galtos for his crimes.
Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

Bartholomew Henry "Bart" Alen II is a superheroe in the DC comics universe. Allen first appeared as the superhero Impulse, a teenager sidekick of the superhero the Flash, before later on becoming the second hero known as Kid Flash. The character first made a cameo appearance in The Flash #91 in 1994, while his first full appearance in issue #92, also appeared as the lead character in Impulse (1995-2002) and The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive (2006-2007). In the later series, the character became the fourth hero to assume the identity of The Flash.
As depicted in a Legion of Super-Heroes story, Barry Allen's children-the Tornado Twins-were arrested in 2995 A.D. by the government of Earth, which had fallen under the covert control of the Dominators. Following a one day trial on trumped-up charges of treason, the twins were executed.
Impulse appears in Legion of Super-Heroes Vol 4 #88, "Fast Times" as a guest star.
I've modified and changed enough a wallpaper from for the BG.
I also toke the liberty to make Bart more of an adult teenager and made him wear the Legion's ring as if he got to be a member. Since this is fan art I get to do whatever I want and get to play with the character freely.
I was inspired by tonight's episode of the CW TV series The Flash and I just happened to be wearing the Flash t-shirt too LOL.
Hope you like it.

The Black Witch

Mysa Nal trained on Sorcerer's World to learn the mystic arts. Her vast powers helped the Legion of Super Heroes defeat Darkseid, after which she was offered membership and accepted, as the White Witch.
On the Retroboot New Earth, when Superboy-Prime killed Kinetix, Mordu gained all Mysa's powers. Mordru then injured Blok, who was trying to protect her. Enraged she used her most powerful spell Aufero Magnus Infusco which caused all Mordu magical powers and his physical form to be absorbed into Mysa, causing her to transform into the Black Witch.
Since it's almost Halloween it seemed appropriate to post something like this.
The BG it's a modified wall paper I found. 
I based this one on a comic book panel I came across. 
I hope you all have an amazing Halloween!!!

Mnemonic Kid

Mnemonic Kid was a rejected Legionnaire applicant, who could induce memory loss. Angry that she had been rejected, she plotted her revenge by wiping parts of the Legionnaire's memories. Another Legion reject, Fortress Lad, came to the rescue by transforming into a giant fortress in order to protect the Legionnaires. Mnemonic Kid continued to use her powers against Fortress Lad, who resisted at the cost of losing all of his memories. As a last resort, Mnemonic Kid threw a grenade at Fortress Lad (and the Legionnaires inside him), but she caught the impact of the explosion herself and died.
The BG Sci Fi BG 1 was made by Creative Stock, I've changed it a little from the original.
To the Legion fans I said this...despite how busy I am with my full time job on The Simpsons, my side art projects and life in general, I always think about completing my mission of drawing all legionnaires. I got the Legion fans in my mind. I miss drawing legionnaires all the time for fun. 
I'll do my best to post a character here and there.

Saturday, August 16, 2014


Teela Spuunvll hails from her native home world of Abaddonus. She has the ability to absorb energy and change it from one form to another, for example sound to light and gamma rays to electricity.
She was rejected from the Legion of Super Heroes because her powers only work if she can have energy available for her to become dangerous. Otherwise, she is vulnerable to somebody like Turtle, who can just punch her. The Legion had an idea for Sizzle, Turtle and Night Girl to become the charter members of the new auxiliar organization called the Legion Reserves. The BG it's called Eye of the Storm by Gabriel Bjork Stiernstrom. 
Yup, I'm still drawing Legion characters. You should know by now what The Legion of Super Heroes is from looking at my Blog. Otherwise that would mean you never read any of the posts or you just don't care...

Guardians of the Galaxy

Here is my little drawing of the Guardians of the Galaxy. I thought the movie was great. I really liked it, it had heart, was well written, it was funny and the visual fx were amazeballs. Most people I know would agree. I feel bad for the sourpuss haters minority, haters gonna hate kinda thing.
Well done Marvel, among Avengers and Captain America, the Winter Soldier it's Guardians for me. I kinda had that feeling I got when I was 10 years old and saw Star Wars for the first time ever.
I loved working with Rocket and Gamora the most.

Guardians of the Galaxy rough pencil

And for my 282 post...It's been a while since I post a rough pencil to share my creative process.
I remember I loved the comic book when I was a kid. Well just about anything that was galactic I was into it, actually I still am LOL.
This piece was all done digitally with my Cintiq. I still have to clean it up and color it, I found a BG from a wallpaper website that fits perfectly. Can't wait to finish it but it may take a while, specially since my computer fell down the stairs and it'll be at the repair shop for a while.
The original 31st century team from an alternative time-line of the Marvel Universe called the Guardians of the Galaxy are a superhero team that appear in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The Guardians first appear in Marvel Super-Heroes #18 (Jan. 1969). 
The modern version of the team was formed in the aftermath of Annihilation: Conquest in 2008.
The film about to come out it's based on the 2008 comic book.
Hope you like it. Happy Friday!

Gear is from a race composed of organic machinery beneath humanoid shells, he can transform parts of his body into tools and interface with computers. The Blackstar Juvenile Correctional Facility captured him for use in maintaining their systems. For quite some time, he pretended to be servile, while programming some of his machinery to disable the systems keeping the inmates contained and powerless upon his deactivation. On the arrival of the Legionnaire Sensor on the station, he was convinced by her to move prematurely, and was severely damaged in the process, activating his failsafes. However, Brainiac 5 successfully repaired him, and Gear remained on the Legion Outpost space station until most of the Legion was lost in a rift and the team was forcefully disbanded as a resultR.J. Brande then made contact with many of the remaining Legionnaires, including Gear, and put together a plan to construct a "Legion World" - an artificial planetoid to house a revived and expanded team, which Gear and Invisible Kid designed and helped to construct.

The BG Sci Fi Lab Corridor was made by 
visit his Deviant Art page at:  
I made a few changes to match Gear.
It's been a while since I've done any 
Legion of Super Heroes characters. 
But I still have a lot of personal projects 
I would like to pay some attention to, 
like my paintings for an art gallery, 
a children's book, storyboard my own 
Sci Fi epic film, 
work on my own website and so forth. 
I'll do my best to at least do one 
Legionnaire per week 
but I can't promise you anything. 
I hope you like this one and my 
new settle changes.

Captain America. The Springfield Soldier

I saw Captain America The Winter Soldier last night. I thought it was a great film all around. A good spy/war/action/super hero movie, not just a great super hero flick but a great movie period.
As a tribute to this awesome film and character I thought I should post something related to fighting injustice in this dysfunctional system. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Married to the Blob it's the 540th Simpsons episode, it was aired January 12th 2014. I had the privilege to work on it as a character designer. Regardless, I have mixed up feelings with some color super hero related things in this episode.
Sometimes changing what you are joking about to the point it becomes something else and parody has almost disappeared, could be unnecessary for the making of a great television show. I've noticed when it comes to super heroes most of the time things are changed and colored so differently that it's almost an insult to the comic book community. At the same I totally understand the legalities. Therefore I'm posting how this Captain America Jack Kirby style should have been colored as a fan tribute. The upper version it's how it should have been, the bottom version it's what aired...Seriously who colors Captain America pink and orange? Really?
Please forgive me Jack Kirby wherever you are in comic book artist Gods heaven, it wasn't my fault.
May Truth, Justice and the American Way prevail!

Legion of Substitute Heroes

Here is the updated Legion of Substitute Heroes group shot!
A group of 30th-century heroes who were denied membership into the Legion of Super-Heroes, due to their powers being deemed limited or inadequate. So they banded together to prove the Legion wrong. 
To my knowledge this is a complete group shot of the substitutes. I apologize "if" I left some character out due to my unawareness. 
For an all Legionnaires group shot you may have to wait for a while, but I'll get there eventually. You are probably asking yourself why are they wearing all legion rings? I know it's a cheat but it's looks more dynamic if some members could fly on the shot. The BG is called "Parking Structure" and was painted by Kurt Richards. I've only changed it a bit.
I'm planning to contact DC comics to see if they are interested in making a poster of this.
Feel free to comment on any of my posts, hope you all dig it.

Urk is a former member of the Legion of Substitute Heroes and a current member of the Legion Academy. Very little is known about Urk even though he has been appearing in various Legion of Superheroes comics for almost thirty years, except this mischievous alien loves to chew on wires. The only readable word Urk has ever said is "Urk." He has also spoken an unreadable alien language, though. The BG, Sci-Fi Interior by Mark Yang was the perfect choice for a wire chewing alien. Special thanks to CA for the info on Urk, much appreciated. I believe now that I've done most of Substitute Heroes an upgraded group shot it's in order... I'm sure by now someone noticed I've been drawing nothing by ugly and obscure characters. Well, that's what happens when you get the cool and sexy ones done first. I'm still having a blast finding new challenging ways to make ugly characters look cool the best that I can. Staying "somewhat" faithful to the original comic book design it's a must for my personal taste. No worries I'll keep em' coming until I'm done with ALL of them.
Long live the Legion.

Double Header

Bam! Double whammy, double post!
Frenk and Dyvud Retzun were from Janus, a world where a species starts as conjoined twins and eventually split into two identical beings.
Double-Header has the power of having two heads with two distinct personalities. He was rejected after his tryout for the Legion of Super-Heroes and instead joined the Legion of Substitute Heroes. 
He was killed in Earth-Man's assault on the Subs, but this was never shown on-panel.
The BG, Landfall Terminal by Michael Pedro. I was influenced by Stuart Immonen's art on Double Header's expressions. 

Fortress Lad

Fortress Lad is an alien from the planet Fwang.  Because that planet is constantly besieged by meteor storms, all Fwangian boys, at puberty, gain the ability to transform themselves into metallic fortresses for the protection of others.  
He once saved the founding members of the Legion of Superheroes by transforming himself into what
would become their headquarters.
Years later this clubhouse became the Legion of Substitute Heroes headquarters. 
The BG it's from Stephan Martiniere, here is his website

Insect Queen

And to continue with the red haired Metropolitans friends of Superman, Lana Lang is the Insect Queen.
Insect Queen is a name used by several characters in the DC Universe. Originally it was used by Lana Lang, a friend to Superboy and honorary member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Her powers come from a ring that gives her the physical abilities of various insects and arachnids. In the modern era an extra-terrestrial super-villain has used the name Insect QueenLonna Leing of Xanthu in the 30th Century is a member of the Uncanny Amazers, existing in Reboot Legion continuity. Insect Queen was created by Otto Binder and George Papp, first appearing in Superboy #124 in 1965. 
I got the BG from as a wallpaper. If I knew the name of the artist it would be here...
I added some signs to resemble Metropolis. For this piece I was inspired by my animation colleague's art Lauren Montgomery. Check out her art Blog at

Elastic Lad

Yup, Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen. Elastic Lad is a super-hero alter-ego used by cub reporter Jimmy Olsen. In this identity, he has the ability to stretch his body parts to incredible lengths. The transformation is caused by Elasti-Formula. He is an honorary member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. The Elastic Lad alias was created by Otto Binder and Curt Swan, first appearing in Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #31 in 1958. 
I got the BG from a Sci Fi wall paper site. Again, I wish I knew the name of the BG artist for the credit.
Since I've just did a Jimmy Olsen related post I thought it would be perfect to follow up with Elastic Lad. Lana Lang's next...

Jimmy Olsen vs. Matter Eater Lad

Married to the Blob is the five hundred and fortieth episode of The Simpsons and tenth episode of the twenty-fifth season. The episode was aired on January 12, 2014. Comic Book Guy realizes his comics are nothing if he can’t share them with anyone. Then he meets Kumiko, a Japanese woman writing an autobiographical manga, and he seeks out Homer’s advice on how to date her, ending happily for everyone. I was asked by Fox thru The Simpsons to design a comic book cover featuring Jimmy Olsen vs. Matter Eater Lad for this episode. Of course since I'm on a mission with the Legionnaires it was my pleasure. 
Although it appears a lot of the comic book characters' colors were intentionally wrong. It seems nowadays avoiding legal entanglements it a priority. I totally understand, but at the same time if you are gonna change what you are joking about to the point that becomes something else, it kind of defeats the purpose of parody after 20 successful years and then some.  If it was up to me, I would have colored it like the upper image, with the original characters' color. Comic book fans are the first to notice things like that, and most fans hate that sort of thing. You want them to like it, they are the majority of the audience.
I'm sure comic book fans would've appreciated it more if it wasn't so deviated from the original.
The bottom image is a screen grab of what was aired.
Is art up to the artists?

Antenna Lad

Khfeurb Chee Bez, born on the planet Grxyor, was "blessed" from birth with his unnaturally shaped ears. Antenna Lad was one of the many applicants who were on hand to try to fill the empty slot in the Legion left by the "death" of founding Legionnaire Lightning Lad. He was rejected because his power, the ability to pick up radio waves transmitted from anywhere on the plant, from the present or past was imperfect, often resulting in deafening feedback squeals. This same ability, however, brought him to the attention of the researchers at the Metropolis Time Institute, who used his power to collect ancient recordings to add to their body of historical knowledge. Later Khfeurb applied to the Legion of Substitute Heroes, and was accepted as an auxiliary member (the Subs could find little use for his abilities either, yet did not want to reject any applicant). Antenna Lad was only briefly seen in cameos after that, including an appearance at the wedding of Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel. During the "Five Years Later" storyarc, Khfeurb is shown multiple times as a newscaster with the United Planets Broadcasting Service. 
I wish I knew the name of the artist for this beautiful BG for the deserved credit. I got it from 
After spending so much time with Porcupine Pete I decided to go for a more simple design here. Still got so many Legionnaires to draw...

Thursday, January 23, 2014


Celeste McCauley of the 30th century is the niece of one of the galaxy's richest industrialists. She is the living embodiment of the last remnants of Green Lantern energy. She was brought back from the brink of death when that collective energy invaded her body and healed its inoperable injuries. She is also known by other aliases as Neon, Darkstar or Celeste Rockfish. One of her outfits looked like a Star Trek the Next Generation's uniform to me so I went for the emerald energy form before Darkstar on Zero Hour.  Celeste has not appeared in any other Legion timelines, but did make a brief appearance in the Legion of Three Worlds story arc, helping the Legionnaires against the Time Trapper
Speaking of which, the Time Trapper along Karate Kid and Dawnstar appear on a new JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time. It's a Target exclusive and it wasn't very much advertised unlike Justice League War. Of course I own it and watched it yesterday. Despite on the Karate Kid's design (not so much), the black wings? on Dawnstar  and the ginormous jaw on Sups,  I liked it, it was allright! Besides, some of my friends worked on it so good job guys!
The BG is the Nebula RCW 49 located 13,700 light years away. It is a dusty stellar nursery that contains more than 2,200 stars and is about 350 light years across. I went over it and made it green.

Porcupine Pete

Born with rough patches that eventually grew into long quills, Peter Dursin never let his appearance get him down. Loved by his caring parents and accepted warmly by his classmates, Pete tried out for the Legion with a wide smile and an ability to project his quills from his body. However, his aim was less than ideal and he was rejected. The Legion of Substitute-Heroes, however, welcomed the young man warmly into their ranks.
The BG was made by the talented Young Joons, the pose was based on a stock photo at  they have a great array of reference poses there. It toke me a little longer than usual on this one, I was debating between simplification or detail. Clearly I went for detail since this won't be used for any animation shows...that I know of. The quills where a bit time consuming. I was trying to add elements from a real porcupine. Eventually I'll add it to the group shot I've posted previously. More legionnaires coming soon, stay tuned.

Fire Lad

Staq Malvern came to Earth in the latter part of the 30th Century from his native planet Shwar, to apply for membership in the Legion of Super Heroes. His power to breathe fire, acquired after inhaling the fumes of a weird meteor was considered too dangerous and he was rejected. Calling himself Fire Lad, he became one of the 5 Legion rejects to form the Legion of Substitute Heroes. I got the BG from and I've painted over it just a bit.
Maybe this design is an amalgam of the original with some elements of the latest one. I gave him a ring so he can fly, besides it would look great on my next Legion of Substitute Heroes group shot, oops spoiler alert!

Chlorophyll Kid

Ral Benem came to Earth in the latter half of the 30th Century from his native world of Mardru to apply for membership in the Legion of Super Heroes. His power to stimulate plant growth, acquired when he accidentally fell into a tank of hydroponic serum as a child, was pronounced inadequate and he was rejected. He also claims that he has the ability to communicate with plants, which he cannot. He is a founding member of the Legion of Substitute-Heroes. For the background I went over a photograph named Spirit Garden by Marc Adamus. Notice I've changed the regular tree on his chest for the Celtic Tree of Life. I thought it would be more meaningful and look much nicer than what I've seen. Now, for an animated show it would have to be simplified unless it's CG, no problem with details there.  For reference and inspiration on this character I looked at the original version and many artists like Ryan Ottley, Humberto Ramos and Dusty Able.

Laurel Kent

Laurel Kent was created in 1976 by writer Jim Shooter and artist Mike Grell for a Legion story called "Future Shock for Superboy." She was the first direct descendant of Superman to appear in DC's 30th century universe. Laurel Kent of Earth was a young woman who happened to be the 30th century direct descendant of Superman. She first introduced herself to a teenage Superboy, then a prominent member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, as 'Elna' (an anagram of "Lane," the surname of Superman's wife Lois Lane). Superboy was initially quite attracted to her, until he discovered to his embarrassment that they were related.  The only super-power Laurel had inherited from her Kryptonian 20th-century ancestor was that of invulnerability, which she demonstrated by absorbing a full-strength energy blast from the Legionnaire Wildfire without suffering even the slightest injury. Because of her invulnerability, she had little need for clothing and favored skimpy outfits (essentially black bikinis, sometimes accessorized with a Superman-like red cape) that reflected this fact. Her only vulnerability was to Kryptonite, due to her Kryptonian heritage. Laurel was given extensive combat training by the Legion Academy, where she learned to take full advantage of her invulnerability as a fighter. Because her body was indestructible, Laurel could hit much harder than a normal human despite lacking her ancestor's super-strength. She could also operate in extreme combat conditions and dangerous environments that few others could enter. 
The BG Cloud City 2 is by Valdek Laur. I've only painted a little over it and made it less realistic.

Chemical Kid

Chemical Kid is presently starring in the ongoing Legion of Superheroes series since the rebooted DC universe in the new 52Hardu Jamik's father, a wealthy businessman on his homeworld of Phlon, synthesized the abilities of the deceased Legionnaire known as Chemical King. Mr Jamik used his own son as a guinea pig with successful result in order to allow his son to play super-hero and become famous. Chemical Kid enrolled at the Legion Academy with the goal to become a famous Legionnaire. He quickly garnered a reputation amongst the staff for being spoiled and a troublemaker for constantly disobeying orders to go out and spend his father's money. Like previous Legionnaire Chemical King, Chemical Kid has the unique ability among his people to accelerate, slow down, or manipulate natural chemical reactions in both objects and living beings. When accelerating his own metabolism with his powers, Hadru is able to move with super-human speed and reflexes.This post is a lot more than just another legionnaire pretty picture. For the BG I thought it would be appropriate to use chemtrails. By touching this topic I don't mean to start a debate and will not tolerate to be insulted or ridiculed, so to those possible folks I say this: if you post anything in a negative connotation in regards to this serious issue your post will be deleted. There is still controversy about chemtrails believe it or not. Those who believe chemtrails are part of a global geoengineering program are immediately and wrongly called conspiracy theorists. There's still people that don't have a clue what a chemtrail is and there are those who will argue chemtrails are the same as contrails. Some good hearted folks may ask the classic why would the government do that or lie to us? But the reality is chemtrails are very real and you can see them in the sky with your own eyes. My "personal" opinion based on my own research is, chemtrails are a co-military operation with the purpose of modifying weather and other hidden agendas. From many different independent sources chemtrails are composed by barium, nano aluminum-coated fiberglass, radioactive thorium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, desiccated blood, mold spores, yellow fungal mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide, and polymer fibers. Now for those who believe this serious issue is a hoax, either they have been greatly blinded and conditioned  with disinformation or they have been planted strategically to spread disinformation with the goal of keeping people confused and to look the other way. 
Here are some links that may be helpful to educate yourself about this topic:

A Khundish boy born on the planet Aetia, the unnamed Flederweb was one of many experimental test subjects for the Khund army. He was given enhancements that changed his physiology, giving him bat-like wings and the ability to cling to walls. Dubbed Flederweb, he was forced into service in the Khund army against his will. To ensure the bitter Khund boy wouldn't rebel, he was fitted with a mind-controlling device that telepathically forced him to obey his orders by the military. He went on to become a fine bounty hunter for them with his acrobatic and aerial skills. Flederweb was chosen as one of the four Khund warriors to join the Legion of Super-Heroes in an assault to defeat the sorcerer Mordru and his undead minions. I based this pose after some Arthur Adams art, one of my many comic book heroes and source of inspiration. The BG it's from
I've enjoyed working on this character, he looks so cool. It almost has that Guillermo del Toro quality to it.

Calamity King

Calamity King aka E. Davis Ester was born on Touston and eventually realized that he was the source of everyone's bad luck. He was a walking jinx and decided to try to put his powers to good use. During the Imperiex campaign, he applied for membership to the Legion of Superheroes as Calamity King. He was rejected because his powers created an equal amount of danger for his allies and enemies, alike. Powers: Bad Luck. Calamity King has the power to cause bad luck both physically or mentally to those around him. His bad luck effects both the animate and inanimate objects. It appears he has no control over this effect. The BG Sci Fi City 02 was made by Nkabuto, found it at his Deviant Art page. I went over it since it was a little more rough than what I usually use for backgrounds, nevertheless I still like the rough state and somehow feels right for Calamity King.
Try not to look at this image for too long just in case, it may bring you bad luck, who knows...

Animal Lad

Real name Ennis Jahnson from Metropolis. He had one appearance which lasted about 2 pages so his stats are obviously speculative. I’ve refrained from giving him the default “all 2s across the board”, choosing instead to treat him as if he were a beginning PC who could’ve been a Legionnaire, if things had been different.
I’ve assumed, given the Legion’s setting, that his Transform Power (from Blood of Heroes : Special Edition) can turn people into non-Terran animals, a slightly more limited form of the “can be imaginary animals” — he can turn people into alien animals, but not mythical ones. 
The BG is from a Mexican architects group name Buba Arquitectos. I went over it and added some FX.
