Hello everyone! In light of the new Arkham game (which is awesome so far!) I wanted to do a kind of "What if?" assassin, so I choose a character that dose not get much credit, that character being Red X. He only appeared in (from my knowledge) the great Teen Titans show as a anti-hero, and kind of a reverse robin,and I remember the first time I saw him and I was like "This is a great character!" unfortunately, he never showed up in any other media that I know of, but no worries! Since I have reinvented him into even more of a bad-ass! I thought it would be cool if I did him as kind of a reverse batman though, having his armor all uneven, and paint being sloppy (relive me, I know it sounds like I am covering my tracks, but when i first started sculpting, I had worked for 30 minutes a plate of armor, but then remembered that this is Arkahm, and then need to be gritty, and uneven, no neat and perfect) so i took off those pieces, and saved them for another time, and then put down pieces, and took my new set of sculpting knives and such, and then pretty much tore, and scraped, and stabbed the plates, until they looked weathered, and broken, and the only part that I decided not to make jagged, was the vest, because I figured he wouldn't go out onto the gang ridden streets of Gotham with a beaten up vest, which protects his vital organs. Anyway my sort of back-story is that he is of course hired t kill the Bat, but at the same time he wants to settle a vendetta with Robin, and goes into Gotham, and finds and scavenges all the armor he can find, and then goes on to get his money, and settle the score, all the while trying to beat his main competitor, Deathstroke.

Hope you like him! Also, do you realmers think I should try and do a younger version, perhaps with the neater look and armor? And who do you think would win in a fight, Red Hood, or Red X?

take care! :)

Red X is one cool character and I like what you've done here...he looks grittier!

Hey there! I LOVE your idea behind this, and the design is COOL! I would go with some more refined armor and paints, though. I read what you were going for, and while I agree Arkham is gritty, the villains have defined looks. Just my opinion, bud! I think you can knock this idea out of the park. I hope to see more Origins inspired villainy from you!

Thanks fitz! I see what you mean now, I was thinking on a more teenage look on next one,
Probably with a base of robin, and or nightwing (arkham) since this is his villain after all! And thanks for the the support, now I can't wait to get to work on a V2! And don't worry, I've already got some more villains up my sleeve.

Also, do you know of any collectors willing to trade? I have a lot of collectibles I'm looking to get rid of, and I figured I might as well trade them for some fodder. In specific, anyone with a fodder lot that has a DCU AC Robin, if you do, it would be much appreciated if you could introduce me to them! Just a small request, and if you can it would be a big help! Also, if you do come up with any collectors, please IM me there info. Anyways, thanks once again for your support!
