Captain Fear. Obscure historical figure from DC comics created by Archie Goodwin(?) and Walt Simonson. Fero was a Carib Indian when his tribe was enslaved by pirates. Leading a revolt, he took the costume and name "Captain Fear" to fight pirates. He was returned to life by Brian Azzrello and Cliff Chiang in Doctor 13: Architecture and Mortality, a fun parody / homage / defense of obscure DC characters. Except the authors missed Fear's Carib origin and instead made him a Caucasian with a wicked hokey Jamaican accent. He sailed a ghost pirate ship across the sky and lusted after Infectious Lass. Here I used a Powhatan (Pocahontas' dad) head and a Chap Mei Blackbeard body. He wears the traditional Carib bowl haircut with long queue braided from embroidery thread. I replaced the rubbery cutlass blade with scrap metal. The hat was gouged off a PVC Yosemite Sam. His neckerchief is real cloth stiffened with Zap-A-Gap. The feather in his hat is shed from a mourning dove picked up in the garden. Painted with acrylics, with Testor metals for buttons and metal, then Dullcoted. 4 inches.
