DC Scribbling - The Atomic Skull (circa 1976) by tnperkins DC Scribbling - The Atomic Skull (circa 1976) by tnperkins
Hey Folks,

Back while I was on the Avengers, I was became a big fan of Batman: The Brave and The Bold. I kept hoping to see some of the villains of my childhood in the 70's show up. Most did. In any case, I wanted to see how the Atomic Skull might've looked in that context, so I took a pass on it. A bit of fan art if you will.

Cheers!

Great job! I think its cool how the oldschool design for Atomic Skull still looks pretty menacing and impressive even by today's standards, though I like the JLU & Super Vs the Elite versions too. Wish the big walking biohazard got more attention in more DC shows and comics

idea for my dc earth 14 work for the atomic skull will look a bit like the 70's one and a little update on the superman vs elite look and name will be Albert Martin as a little name tripute to the Brozen age dc comics and the moden age ones before the new 52

Great pick, I also loved the look of Batman: Brave and the Bold, would have loved to see the style applied to 80's GI Joe. Great work, thanks for sharing!

Very cool, but kind of surprised you didn't configure the eyes, nose and mouth of the chest emblem skull to resemble a radiation sign.. it would look like an open mouthed screaming skull and be a nice way to differentiate it from, say, Punisher's logo. Great choice on the green and I love the glowing hand and eye effects. Cool Cool Cool.

Ah, still cool. Really sad Avengers EMH is ending. What I loved about it and Young Justice is that they kind of broke the "Soccer-Mom Clause," if you know what I mean. And the episodes are all in sync. Usually with American cartoons its an episode for the week rather than follow one central plot and have the episodes fit into that plot. Thats why I got into anime, but Young Justice and Avengers got me back into American hero cartoons and I started reading comics again. Who would have guessed they could make Aquaman into a bad A?

Is there anything you can't make look FANTASTIC?

Ultra the Multi-Alien?
Vartox?
Doctor Bong (from Howard the Duck)?
Wonder Man in his West coast Avengers red and green monstrositie with the jetpack?
Killer Moth?
The Sphinx (Nova's Thanos knockoff enemy)?
