Atomic Skull (DC Infinite Heroes) Custom Action Figure
Almost forgot about this guy entirely. Days got away from me there. Ok, so, Joseph Martin got his powers the same way any normal comic character gets their powers: some type of explosion. In his case, a gene-bomb that caused his flesh to turn invisible. I'm assuming not his whole flesh considering this figure is based upon an image where his arms are bare. Guess they just wanted a Ghost Rider type character. Well, of course, he ended up going crazy and took up the moniker of Atomic Skull, based upon his favorite movie serial. He ended up thinking Lois Lane was the Atomic Skull's love interest, so he did numerous battles against Superman over her. Continuously lost, but kept coming back. That's dedication. lol With the launch of New 52, he's so far only really been seen as an inmate in a maximum security prison in Deathstroke. Not sure if he's appeared elsewhere yet. This was my first attempt with a new flesh tone. My old one is apparently discontinued and I'm scraping the bottom of the bottle to finish a couple of customs using the color. I wasn't wild about the new one at first, but seeing it on a finish figure makes it look quite nice. So I may stick with it. I sculpted up the collar and cut sections into it to really make it look more collar-like. Sculpted up the belt as well, but just painted on the wrist bands. I used a clear green over the flames out of curiosity, and it came out pretty well.
