Simply Spy MATT DAMON

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is Matt Damon. You might remember him in such films as Good Will HuntingThe Martian, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and of course, the Jason Bourne series. He is definitely not a spy from Team Fortress 2 disguised in a Matt Damon cut-out mask.

Hyperion

HyperionByJTjr2018

Five weeks ago, I posted an art work on Commander Steel, one of DC’s answers to Captain America. Today, I introduce you to Hyperion, Marvel’s first answer to Superman.

Hyperion is a lot similar to Superman, in the sense they share similar super powers as well as origin stories, but with a few minor differences.  His powers include super strength, super speed, flight, x-ray vision named “Atomic Vision,” and so forth. He even has his own kryptonite in the name of “Argonite.” Like Commander Steel, there are different versions of Hyperion, except each one comes from a different universe. Few align to the forces of good, others to the forces of evil, and one is even a zombie from the Marvel Zombies universe. The one posted above is based on the most recent version of the character. Not only is he a member of the Avengers (in the comics), but also a leader to the Squadron Supreme, Marvel’s take on the Justice League.

I got into this character when I was looking up early work from comic book artist, Gary Frank, and came across Marvel’s mature series, Supreme Power. Personally, it reminded me of Watchmen in its deconstruction of superheroes, but with characters based on members of the Justice League. This version of Hyperion was raised by the US government and used as a secret weapon. It would also be the inspiration to one of my original characters.

Rey, The Force Awakens

As of this post, I still haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I’m going off what I’ve seen so far in the series, including the original trilogy and “A Star Wars Story” titles (e.g. Rogue One). I haven’t seen the prequels (Episodes 1-3), either, nor do I think I’ll be drawing characters from them anytime soon.

T’Challa, ruler of Wakanda, suits up as the Black Panther. This is my latest artwork of the character, in anticipation for the Marvel movie coming next week in the states.

 

Inktober, Day 5 – Long

“From out of the pages of DC Comics comes the world’s newest and greatest superhero… Plastic Man!” – Opening narrator from The Plastic Man Comedy Adventure Show (1979)

Plastic Man was probably the third superhero I was introduced to after Batman and Superman. I use to catch the old animated series every Saturday morning, when I was a little kid. It even included live action segments with an actor playing the lead role. Figured I do this for today’s Inktober prompt.

Convention Appearances and Other Announcements, Fall 2017

After NerdCon and Capital City Comic Con, I am looking to do at least one more comic con appearance and more before the year ends.

  • September 30th – October 1st, you can catch me at FantastiCon at the Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run, MI.
  • Throughout October, I will be taking on the Inktober Challenge, so you will be seeing more content from me.

The Rising Star

RisingStar01

Mantovani – Born Free

Here’s an original I made in three days for NerdCon 2017.  You may have already seen him in one of my 3D works years ago on here.  He’s been my latest Superman pastiche for some time now.

An ordinary human who after exposure to a meteorite, develops super strength, speed, and flight.  However, when the U.S. government catches up to him, he is made into their own sponsored superhero, going on missions and being admired by the public.  Though he finds this as an opportunity to make a name for himself and atone for his past, it is not an easy path, especially with the people from his personal life.
