    Slipknot -- Enemy of Firestorm and Member of the Suicide Squad

    Slipknot's first appearance was in Fury of Firestorm #28 (October 1984), in which he was created by writers Joey Cavalieri and Gerry Conway and artist Rafael Kayanan.

    His alter ego Christopher Weiss works for a chemical company in the southern United States, where he develops his formula for the durable ropes he would later use.

    Slipknot first battles, and loses to, Firestorm before eventually becoming a member of the Suicide Squad, a team of costumed characters, all serving the government for their own reasons. Many members are criminals, who are promised a reduced sentence if they survive their missions.

    My custom Mego Slipknot is built on a ZICA Type S body with black hands from CTVT; head is a modified Reverse Flash head originally available on with paints by me; boots from CTVT painted by yours truly; costume by me as well. I modified the costume a bit because I really do not like the holes cut in the sides of it or those huge sleeves.

    Wrapping up his enemy Firestorm in a nice little package...

    I hope you enjoy my customs as much as I do, and, as always, thanks for looking!

    Peace, Love, and Megos!

                    Slipknot is a running gag over on the Fire and Water podcast, particularly the Who's Who episodes. He's even mentioned in the closing theme!

                    Great job as always, Austin!

                            Excellent and obscure as always. Iron Man boots are a sweet touch.
