Earth Man

Kirk Niedrigh is a semi-reformed super villain  that was coerced into joining the Legion. 
Created by Cary Bates and Mike Grell, Niedrigh is a former hopeful for the Legion of Super Heroes under the guise of Absorbency Boy. After being rejected from the team, years later he resurfaced as Earth Man leading a group of super villains called the Justice League of Earth, which help to enforce a xenophobic agenda that Earth has adopted. He first appeared in Superboy and the Legion of Super Heroes # 218 back in 1976. And re-appeared as Earth Man since 2007. 
Sorry Legion fans it toke a long time to come up with a Legion related post. I've been ridiculously busy with multiple projects. About to launch my own website, building a UFO art car for Burning Man etc etc...
Besides I think I'm running out of characters, at least the main ones.
Hope you like it, cheers!
And have a Happy 4th btw...

For the most part all the actual main characters are done with a few exceptions.
So at this point it's rejected applicants or weird 60's stuff.
That's why I kind of lost momentum, in top of all the million things I'm doing simultaneously that are equally as important or more.
One day I'll be done...

Oh wow! Accordion King???? LOL.
By the way, M'rrisey was a bona fide member and you really need to include him if you're going to include Fruit Boy.
Also, in the threeboot, Theena was a member (as shown in the introductory roll call of silhouettes every now and then). She was the girl with the symbiotic discs on her back. In fact, maybe you could include more of the threeboot, eg black Star Boy, Cham Boy with blank eyes, etc.
Finally, Lighhtning Lord, Saturn Queen and Cosmic King were made members when Dynamo Boy took over the Legion, so maybe you can draw all three in the same picture.
Keep it going ... you're almost there!

Awesome, thanks for the reminder on those characters!
I'm sure at one point once I'm done with that list, I'll be asking fans if I missed anything.
Hopefully before the 30th Century LOL.

Maybe even the heroes of Llallor: Duplicate Boy, Life Lass, Gas Girl, Evolvo lad, Beast Boy.

Tommy T said...

That sounds great! I'm running out of female characters.
I may need some reference at one point.
Thank you!

And the adult Legion of Super heroes admitted the descendants of Luthor and Mxyzptlk (with costumes)! As well as Batman.
Love the new site :)
