Thread: Black Lightning

  1. #1

    Black Lightning

    Had an idea for this guy for a while. The only way to go was a printed suit but wanted to make sure the lightning effect was kept intact from a badly placed seam. I didn't want a seam going up the shoulder so a separately printed top seemed the way to go. I showed my design to Austin at Mego Meet. Explained what I was going for and got this suit from him. Added my own belt, collar and cuffs on a Zica body to get a piece of 70's goodness. My head and paints.





    Better late than never.....

    Really Awesome Brian! And timely, as BL is having a resurgence! I wish he would have been on Super Friends, instead of Black Vulcan.

    Man, that's pretty cool. I wasn't an Outsiders fan,but I was intro'd to him earlier when he was a part of the Detective Comics team in that costume. I recently picked up his debut run in the reprint volume:Pretty good storyline! I have always loved that first custume:That's a great Mego version right there:-)
