I have always liked anti heroes and villains more than heroes. Snake Plissken, The Plutonian, The Punisher etc.

I recently read a TPB, JSA Volume 8, called Black Reign, Black Adam returns to his native country, overthrowing the current dictator, and appoints himself the countries new ruler/protector.

Here I have my version of Black Adam, no pointy ears, he was originally human, and the art in Black Reign shows him with regular ears. I opted for an all Gold and Black look, rather than use flat yellow.

The only thing I don't particularly like about the character's look are his yellow pirate boots. They just dont seem to suit the character. I opted to give him black boots, with golden armour plates on the shins and covering part of the feet. I feel this has a more practical look, and ties well with his armoured wrist bands.

Recipe -

Body = WWE Deluxe MVP uper body, legs from a TNA deluxe Sting, this means no paint rub, as all the parts are black plastic.

Head = Marvel Legends Sandman

Wrist gauntlets = rubber grip from a ball point pen. I heated and poped the hands, and slipped the rubber grips over, maintaining full articulation. The rubber grips have a slightly grooved texture.

Custom painted from head to toe.

Very awesome! I'm not sure about the head, but the rest looks spot on.

Incredibly sweet custom! Looking vicious as he should! Makes me wish I still had my Major Force. I would totally make this guy and maybe a few more villains too!

Thanks all, haha yeah those cuffed boots were so popular for so many characters!

My favorite DC villian! I need to get mine finished one of these days! When you mention pirate boots, you are talking about the cuffs around the tops of the boots right? I like those, but never did understand why so many heroes and villians wear those. Captain Marvel, Cap. American, Cyclops, Doc Samson, Juggernaut(just a quick glance up and that's what I saw!). I don't know why they sometimes draw him with pointy ears and sometimes without...that's also a mystery to me. Love your custom! The gold paint work is a nice touch!

Love the expression first off, he really has that sinister smug air about him. I think this is my favorite Black Adam too, he is so cool. Excellent stuff.
