This is number 3 in my series of Earth-2 Superman fan fiction figures. The idea for this character came from a story in Superman: The Man of Steel #'s 80-82 in which the reality-altering villain Dominus creates a 1930's reality that he places Superman in. In this reality, he encounters the Golden Age Atomic Skull, an actor named Lawrence Dennis, who was also a Nazi sympathizer. In the story, he used his reputation as the hero of the Curse of the Atomic Skull movie serial as a platform to promote Nazism. To create "my" Golden Age Atomic Skull for the fan fiction, I kept most of this back story as canon, but added a few little inside touches to the character, such as making him a Nazi sleeper agent (instead of just a Nazi sympathizer) whose real name being Albrecht Michaels, a play on the real name of the Bronze Age Atomic Skull.

The figure was a fairly simple custom. First, I removed the head from the Psycho-Pirate figure. Next, using Milliput, I crafted the gloves and boots (unfortunately, in the process, I lost the upper ankle articulation that the original figure had). Once the milliput was dry, I applied several coats of paint to create his costume, and, once all paint was dry, then glued on a hand made skull symbol to his chest. Lastly, I took my Norman Osborn head, I repainted the hair blonde and then attached it to the body), and TA-DA...the Golden Age Atomic Skull!!!!

Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.

Thanks again, HectorHall...I'm glad you liked this one as well. I always try and do things that have never before been seen here on the realm, or just my own take on something. Customizing is equal parts hard work and imagination, which my unique voice shows.
