William Foster spent his childhood in the Watts ghetto. His natural intelligence and the influence of several good people helped him leave the ghetto and attend California Technical Institute, but not before enlisting in the military. He saw combat in southeast Asia, where he made an enemy of CIA operative Geoffrey Ballard, later the rogue super-agent known as the Centurion. As a student, Foster worked toward a degree in biochemistry and met and married Claire Temple, a medical student. Upon graduation, he worked his way up the corporate ladder at Stark Industries, but his drive for success strained their marriage to the point of divorce.
Used a Bobby Lashley wrestling figure, sprayed painted gloss black, then taped off and did a flat white for the shirt. Dry brushed ob the skin tone and the silver high lights in the black part of his costume. Thought about just painting on the hair line but decided I need some bulk for the fro. Hot glue was my answer, put it on to build up the height and then took a pin and jabbed it to give it texture.
