Being so similar to Superman, made this Gladiator with a Supes base. He's definitely got a more bad'bum look going on than Supes, so needed to change the head to something tougher, meaner, like a Praetor oughtta look.
With a bit of sculpt and repaint, the Aquaman head turned out to be a suitable fit. Also thought it'd be more fun to give him exchangeable hands (from Ultraman), for in-flight poses as well as some fists to put up his dukes. Got the cape from a Dr. Impossible and went with gold trimming instead of yellow this time.
Have made countless Gladiator customs over the years, and still haven't made a perfect version yet. But it sure does feel good to get nearer with each brush stroke!
