In the Golden-Age superheroes got their powers in a lot of different ways, from being strange alien visitors, to breathing heavy water, to just being born that way. Percy van Norton, “useless son of a wealthy man,” however is unique, he got his "strength of a hundred elephants, speed of a racing car, and the skin with the toughness of a rhinoceros,” by reading a book. The "Secret Book of Yogi Exercises" to be exact. Keeping up his guise as pointless and lazy “super playboy” Percy from time to time, when the need arises, he rips off his mundane everyday tuxedo and becomes Strongman, the Perfect Human. (per Comicvine Wiki)

I chose to do this, originally Holyoke,character because he did show up in the Invaders as a member of Battle Axis, which in a sense was a group of misguided and misinformed super heroes.

For this Hero I started with a DCUC Hawkman body.
The head and lower legs are from a DCUC Captain Marvel.
The cape is from a DCD Red Tornado.

The chest was sculpted by yours truly, an then painted.

Hope you like it.
Have a great day, and God bless.

This is one interestingly cool character from the past! I enjoyed his backstory. And, of course, the custom is perfect, brother!
