So I have wanted to do this figure for a long time. I was a little worried that people would think I am a neo-Nazi or something without some context.
In any case, this figure is a batman beyond body base, with a sculpted belt to be comic accurate. I used a paint technique I have never used before, where I did multiple layers of dry brushing only, with slightly lighter color with each layer. I think it turned great. Plus the figure retains all of the original articulation except for the neck and hip swivel now are a bit stiff. Chest emblem was custom from scratch using Adobe Illustrator. Head is from DCSH superman with removal and re-sculpting of the scalp on the side to match the comic book character who has it shaved to the skin. Cape is from a DCUC superman with lots of cutting to make attach properly.
This is my second attempt at packaging; I tried to make this more stylish and fitting then the other one. Designed on Adobe Illustrator, and printed on a High Res Laser Printer. The insert is removable to use as a custom background. There also is a basic stand included in the box. The back panel contains a custom bio and stats based on Overman's appearance in Countdown to Crisis:

Rocketed to Earth as a baby from the dying world of Krypton, landing in the occupied Sudetenland in 1938. From the rocket that carried him, Nazi scientists reverse-engineered the technology to win the world WAR II. Overman was one of the super humans appointed by Adolf Hitler to be his heroes. And OVERMAN became a member of the Gerechtigkeitliga, enforcers of the Nazis' regime. Overman found a substance called Kryptonite, and noticed that could not only weaken but also kill him, which is the reason why he set out and destroyed apparently all the Kryptonite in the world. When the Forerunner arrived on Earth-10 to recruit super humans for the Monarch's army, Overman attacked her but was defeated by being impaled with shards of Kryptonite, and ultimately recruited into Monarch's forces. OVERMAN was most likely killed while fighting the Monitors on Earth-51. RUMORS SAY THAT THE OVERMAN THAT PERISHED WAS ACTUALLY A CLONE OF THE REAL OVERMAN WHO DISAPPEARED SEVERAL YEARS EARLIER!
