JL: CRISIS ON 2 EARTHS - CAPTAIN SUPER Jr. by Jerome-K-Moore JL: CRISIS ON 2 EARTHS - CAPTAIN SUPER Jr. by Jerome-K-Moore
WB Animation, Character Design, JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS, Captain Super Jr. Pencil, cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

It was my challenge to design characters for animation in a style closely matching that of my friend, Phil Bourassa, the lead designer on this show.

On an alternate Earth, versions of our heroes are twisted and villainous. The Marvel Family has its dark counterpart in The Super Family, henchmen for Superwoman. They are endowed with their formidable abilities to serve her evil whims. I worked from designs submitted by Alex Ross, and Bruce Timm. Once a more realistic direction was chosen, Phil Bourassa and I came up with this rendition, preserving enough exaggerated cartoon elements to keep things interesting. The character is both comical and formidable at the same time.

* In the final screen version, it's clear from the costume color scheme that the producers chose to cleverly allude to Black Adam. However, in my own personal revision here, I wanted to go another way, back toward a dark, skewed, "mirror-universe" Marvel Family color scheme.

*** At this very moment (2/22/2011), I have been informed of the sudden death of Dwayne McDuffie, the writer of this show, and creator of so many characters in the DC Universe. We are shaken and saddened here at Warner Bros. I pray for strength and comfort for his loved ones in this time of tragedy.

I just realised that if Superwoman and the other Supers are in fact Earth 3's version of the Marvel Family, that means Superwoman and Captain Super are like murderous twelve year olds. And Owlman is an even bigger weirdo.

OR-- they have no alter egos at all.  Or, if they do, their alter egos are all adult.  It's an alternate reality for a bunch of characters that are already based in fantasy.  You can do whatever you want with it, and it doesn't have to be as twisted as what you've chosen to imagine.

Really like the design.

Also, not really sure why, but Captain Super Jr. kinda sounds like that one giant burrito they sell at Mexican food places that they challenge you to eat in 15 minutes, and if you do, they take a picture of you and put it up on the hall of fame conveniently located near the bathrooms.

I'm really hoping you know what I'm talking about.
