This will be my first of hopefully many Ultraverse characters. Atom Bob (Bob Hardin) - Art student who gains the ability to rearrange matter on the molecular or atomic levels. The Strangers consisted of a group of random passengers on a cable car who were struck by what they believed to be a bolt of lightning, but was actually a "jumpstart": one of the bursts of energy emitted by the Entity from the Moon, which transformed them into "Ultras".

Atom Bob is made from a Johnny Quick main body; biceps, forearms, fist, lower legs, and feet OMAC; and the last part a Superman Blue head. I had a couple of first with this figure it was the first time trying to paint eyes and also the first time hand painting a logo. It was Atom Bob's logos success that finally made me finish my Iron Fist. Oh the ear covers were colored differently at times in the comic, sometimes they were blue others they were gold. I went with the gold which personally I think looks better.

Update: I decided to pulled Atom Bob off the shelf to do a little update his paint. I added some dry brushing to the red of his costume to smooth out the wash that I originally did to the figure. I also added a little more detail to his face. Let me know what you all think.

Thank you very much... I have a lot of Ultraverse comics as well. My favorites were Prime and Mantra. I'm trying to think of a good recipe for Prime.
