Yeah..... No.
 
2012-01-05 08:39:14 AM
So "inspired" means palette swapped now? Good to know. I'll go fire up my PS and have some inspired versions of the Ninja Turles now.
 
2012-01-05 08:39:57 AM
Yes, "interesting". That looked like ass.
 
2012-01-05 08:44:05 AM
That looks....awful.

WTF. Tranzor Z, Speed Racist, and Battle of the Planets.
 
2012-01-05 08:59:43 AM
Aw, come on. The "Science Ninja Hero Batman" thing is clever. That's what Batman *is*.

I liked the Superman logo on the giant robot, but... no.

Ultraman/Aquaman, Cobra/Green Lantern, Captain Harlock/Wonder Woman... blargh!
 
2012-01-05 09:03:06 AM
Yeah I think I liked the Batman designs best, but Batman seems to do the best of all heroes with re-interpretation.

The Speed Racer Flash just made me think of the JLU scene where Flash buys a van and GL wants to know why he'd need one.

Looks pretty bad. That's coming from a bit of an anime fan (well 80's and 90's mostly).

No thanks. I hate every ounce of it. First, because anime is almost as cool and fresh as steampunk and also because the characters are all just ripped off designs from earlier anime cartoons with the appropriate superhero symbols pasted on.

Yuck.

The style is an homage to the 1970's anime "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman", AKA "Battle of the Planets"

The WW design reminds me of Star Blazers feel but I can't place the exact character.

Close, Captain Harlock. Esmeralda to be exact, though it may be a gender swapped Harlock (which, when you get down to it, is basically saying the same thing).

Wow, you guys are such dicks. How many of you are comic book artists for a big name company? Pull those sticks out of your asses. Guy was just having a bit of fun. The drawings are pretty well done, and kind of whimsical. I doubt anyone was being "SUPER SERIOUS" about making this. And before you jump onto the part in the article that says that "DC almost made this", I am sure that just means that a boss of his saw his stuff and wanted it done, but was shot down (maybe by the artist himself).

So, if you all think this is crap, what's the best that you can do? I assume something like this:

Okay was it ever proven that Zoltar was a woman? I only saw the americanized Battle of the Planets series, but you got that impression from at least 2 episodes.

PerfectStorm: why does Superman look like Optimus


I don't know why he did it, but his Superman is part Giant Robo and part Tetsujin 28. It's basically a tribute to Mitsuteru Yokoyama.

In order to critique the work of a professional, one does not have to be a professional of the same kind. Or do you also tell people to shut up when they yell at a stupid play in football because they aren't professional athletes? Or stop diners from returning improperly prepared foods because they are not chefs?

Sorry, wait, the designs are actually more like someone took a lightbox and copied existing characters with slight changes...that must mean you're Greg Land. How's the porn face drawing going for you these days?

If I remember my trivia right, without getting all Google-y, the US version has the Zoltar persona shared by a brother/sister team, as some sort of ploy to confuse G-Force. In Japan (where the hand can be used like a knife), Berg is a composite being, brother and sister fused into one, in an attempt to create a powerful, perfect being. Didn't work out too well, as Katse had a tendency to switch genders at the drop of a hat.

/loved watching it back in the 70s on KBHK 44, in Oakland, California.

This is a troll. Every JL character in that lineup is an obvious rip-off of classic Japanese cartoon, so I'm calling this story pure bullsh*t. This was some moron's deviantart-type project, not a real thing.

A lot better than the steroid driven homoerotic design of comic books today.

You people are insane.

acella: A lot better than the steroid driven homoerotic design of comic books today.

So instead we get borderline homoerotic bishi design. Good trade. Hey when you draw skin one solid color throughout the body they look like a mannequin. At least they drew noses on their characters and good eye size and head size.

What the hell, I'll take a stab at answering:
The Flash needs a car to pick up chicks.
The pollution from surface-dwellers has mutated Aquaman into a living magic capsule sponge toy.
Superman developed a kryptonite phobia, and he must use a giant mecha for even the simplest rescues.
The Joker is female so there can be Joker/Harley lesbian fanfic.

Batman Beyond was actually pretty solid when compared with some of the shiat that came after it.

I like anime, especially 60s - 80s. I like DC Superheroes. I like chocolate in my peanut butter. But I could not watch this. Unless it was subbed.

80s anime. Girls with guns. And not much else.Link

Batman Beyond had one of my favorite movies.

My god that movie was awesome. The part with Tim Drake and the Joker was insane.
