Okay, here comes another conjectural character, this one based upon the episode of the old Superfriends cartoon, "Universe of Evil", which just so happens to be one of my favorite episodes of the series. In the episode, Superman and his evil other-dimensional counterpart inadvertently exchange realities. The Superfriends series showcased many mainstays of classic Pre-Crisis Superman lore, such as the Bottle City of Kandor, the Phantom Zone, the Fortress of Solitude, the Supermobile, and the Superboy career. Using that last part as my basis, I figured that if the reality of "Universe of Evil" was just a mirror image of the mainstream DC Universe at the time, then it is theoretically possible that the evil Superman had his own career as Superboy.
To do this figure, I took a DC Direct Crisis on Infinite Earths Series 3 Earth-Prime Superboy figure and used the boil and pop method to completely disassemble him. Once the body was diassembled I set about applying two coats of Testors Model Masters Acryllic Flat black to all areas of the Superboy costume that were blue. Once the paint had dried, I applied two generous coats of Flat Clear to the now black areas of the costume to make the flat black, flatter. Next, I reassembled the figure, and slapped on new chest and cape symbols with a little glue (both symbols were made by hand at a larger size, and then photocopied and shrunk to proper size...however, unlike previous hand drawn symbols I had done before, these are drawn with a slight curve to each of the sides as well as a slightly smaller size to more match the look of the "S" symbol of the late Silver Age/Bronze Age of Superboy stories), and TA-DA...Superboy as he might have looked on the parallel world of the Superfriends episode, "Universe of Evil"!!!
Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.
