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.
