Norman Osborn Orange Lantern Marvel Sector 2814:
After his humilation, defeat, and incarecetion following the Siege of Asgard, Norman Osborn may have been down, but he was far from out. His desire for revenge, and lust for power brought him the third of the Orange Rings. Using this new power, he escaped to mone of his remaining secret underground H.A.M.M.E.R. Bases. There he began to monitor the world's events, and discovered that to mbat these strange "super-zombies" there were popping up all over teh globe rings like his, in different colors. Using his scientific knowlege, Norman began to track the ring energies, nad sent one of his remianing loyal agents; "Mr. Green"; to aidhim in retirieving and controlling this new power. After Dr. Doom asserted himself as Orange Lantern Prime however, "Mr. Green" betrayed Osborn and returned teh ring to it's rightful owner. Now Osborn bides his time and prepares for the day when he will topple Doom and claim the throne as Orange Lantern Prime.

Uhmm since when does Norman Osborn sport a mustache???? I like the overall paint job and look of this fig it looks like a good OL but I just do not see the Norman Osborn in this and I really think it is the mustache and expression that is not working for me. Good Job and nice paint apps, especially the symbol that is a hard one to paint in that scale. I really do like this design.

I agree on the mustache looking at the pictures, but the original figure had scruff and I thought it helped convey the defeated dejected Norman Osborn. I'll confess I'm not completely up-to-date on the goings-on in the Marvel Universe but I'm trying to make the crossover storyline as contemporary as possible. I picked the figure because the expression reminded me of the DCD OL Lex Luthor, the completely overwhelmed-crazed look. and Norman was a tough lantern to design, as he's gone through a number of changes in recent years. I may go back and take another crack at the head/hair, to give it a more Norman Osborn-esque look, but I need to get more sculpy first. Glad you're enjoying the cross-over storyline, you can see some of my earlier figures in this series in my customs page, starting with GL Spider-man.
