Martin has been a dear patron for years, having ordered a set of the complete Grell/Cockrum Legion of Super Heroes. When some space opened in my schedule and he asked for some more recent members, how could I refuse?
Invisibile Kid II- The second Legionnaire to turn invisible. Somehow fandom forgot to riot when Kid II arrived and had dark skin.
Sensor Girl- a mysterious member who had total control over the senses (whatever that meant?). At the time, some members were sad that she was actually the recently-deceased Supergirl. I’d be sad too if Supergirl was dead (Supergirl got better).
The White Witch- A real, spell-casting witch that is also albino? very white? limited color palette? This was the first time I had made the character and I had a lot of fun. Clay is to heavy for robes and long hair, so I used a good deal of sheet styrene for the figure. Her skin is a very pale shade of pink to provide some contrast.
Polar Boy- In the You-can’t-make-this-up Department, there were some superheroes WHO WEREN’T HERO-Y ENOUGH TO JOIN the Legion. Undaunted, Polar Boy formed THE LEGION OF SUBSTITUTE HEROES. These less-than-stellar applicants first formed in 1963 and continued to make appearances for forty years. Eventually, Polar Boy joined the big leagues. I love the Substitute Heroes. Someone needs to give me a wagon of money to build all of them.
I had a great time making these. There’s actually a fifth member Martin requested, but he’s so special he merits his own post in January.
Thank you again for all of the years of your support, Martin. I hope you enjoy them!
