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...
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 ashleynicolebooks.worldpress.com. 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.
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...
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 www.pcpro.co.uk 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.
