DCU Vol.14: Secret Society by alexmax DCU Vol.14: Secret Society by alexmax
Time for more bad guys. After the Injustice Gang now it's the turn of the Secret Society. Once more I picked one villian for every member of this JLA lineup, except for Superman, since I covered many of his villains already, instead, I included Deathstroke. If the lineup reminds you of the Secret Society from the Justice League cartoon, believe me, it's no accident.

Gorilla Grodd: Instead of a genius naked gorilla running around, I wanted to give him some dignity (a.k.a. a loincloth)... not my original idea saw it on a statue.

Deathstroke: Not sure Deathstroke would accept joining a team, he strikes me as more of a loner, at worst he would have to lead such team. Was debating whether to make him look more like the comics or the Teen Titans cartoon, went with what I am more familiar with, but I did give him the cartoon shin-guards.

Giganta: the track suit from the more recent comics, with the leopard pattern from Superfriends and the attitude from JLU.

Killer Frost: Haven't seen Young Justice yet, but I somewhat used that KF design as inspiration.

Fatality: One of the few recurring villains for Kyle Rayner, I understand she is now with the Fucsia Lanter... er, I mean, the Star Sapphires, pity. Here she is with the Yellow Lantern Corps (not that I'm a fan of the whole Sinestro Corp deal either, but w/e). Fatality gave me the opportunity to finally include a dark-skinned female.

Clayface: DCAU's Clayface, well, my version of it.

Ocean Master: Orm ambushed MOTU's Mer-Man and stole all his gear. :B The original suit is wacky: what's with the cape underwater?

Hope you like these. Comments welcome, as always :)

Yes indeed, "my" Killer Frost is inspired on the one seen in Young Justice, even if I hadn't seen the actual show at the time (just still images). :P

Lol. At least this version of Giganta has some modesty... I actually prefer the track suit compared to her JLU outfit. More modest, even with the skin-tightness...

Deathstroke looks far more menacing. XD Good.

Ah, the Clayface with the sympathetic backstory. Nice. Until the series was revamped with New Batman Adventures, you got to feel for him.

Did they change Clayface's backstory in TNBA? I don't remember that. In fact, there's a lot of TNBA I don't remember since I haven't seen that show since it's original air dates. By that time I had all my attention pointed at S:TAS, which is always treated as the redheaded stepchild of the DCAU, but as far as I'm concerned, it was just as good as the other shows. Maybe never reaching the heights of JLU or B:TAS, but it was consistently good... not counting the "Superman's Pal" episode.

They didn't change Clayface's DCAU backstory, but they made him a bit more... textbook villain... at least, to me, that's how it seemed.

Maybe one you do later could include a version of The Phantasm?

Awesome Giganta and Killer Frost. I love your design for Giganta and her outfit. Your design is much better than her X-man movie suit she has been wearing in the comics.

alexmax Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Professional General Artist
Actually, "my" design has a lot of that "X-Man movie suit" except I added some of her trademark leopard skin pattern :B. I think in the comics there's only a bit of animal print in the collar. I wanted to pay homage to the classic Giganta, but with a modern twist.

Your design may be based on that suit. I still say yours is the better overall design.

isn't fatality a star sapphire, not a sinestro lantern?
Reply
:iconalexmax:
alexmax Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011  Professional General Artist
Yes she is. Thing is that back when I was reading comics, she had an oath to kill all remaining lanterns (John Stewart and Kyle Rayner) so I made her into a Siniestro Corp member. Fatality isn't the first character I change in this series of lineups :)

Hmm, I don't do requests, BUT chances are whatever characters you have in mind I have them in my "to do" list somewhere... unless it's the rainbow lantern corps or other characters from the most recent years in Dan DiDio's reign of terror in DC comics. :lol:

I was gonna request some old Teen Titans chicks ;) like Lilith Clay [link] , Argent [link] , Anima [link] [link] and a few others, since i thought it'd be a cool tribute seeing as they probably wont return in the new reboot thing DC have going on :)
maybe you'll consider it...? :D

alexmax Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011  Professional General Artist
woh, ok, forget what I said about having those characters in my "to do" list! 2 out of those 3 I had never heard before. Can't promise you anything, maybe if I do a Teen Titans East or something like that.

TheEvilWalrus Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011  Student
That would be really cool! :D

or maybe 'Titans West [link] - girls' with the three that I mentioned above, Lilith Clay (founder of Titans West), Argent and Anima AND the Titans West girls Bumblebee [link] , Flamebird (bat-girl) [link] [link]
Duela Dent (Joker's Daughter)[link] [link] and maybe Terra II [link] or Mirage [link] [link] to round off the seven :D

woah, that took a while for those links, ;) hope u like this idea of a Titans West girls, it would be really cool if u did it (with the girls i suggested ;)) :D kinda excited about it, hope u choose to go ahead with it!

Teen Titans West, that's what I meant not "East"... my ignorance on the whole Teen Titans corner of the DCU precedes me.

Very nice line-up -- hadn't heard of Fatality before (since I'm not following the stories for the last, oh, ten years or so -- don't get me started on how both DC and Marvel have gone downhill since Crisis on Infinite Earths and Yawnslaught), but these look really good. And the DCAU Clayface is spot-on! However, I have to ask...what's with Grodd's lipstick? Has he encountered the recent movie-ized Joker? :D

:iconalexmax:
alexmax Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Professional General Artist
I've seen Grodd drawn before with either blood or drool (depending on the coloring) frothing from his mouth. Anything to differentiate him from a simple gorilla. Fatality? Fatality is from the mid-90's, not a very well-known character, for sure, but that's also the point, to include every now and then an obscure character (she does have an action figure, which I guess means she is not that obscure!).

:iconluinsaro:
Luinsaro Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
Oh, okay...I was just wondering!

And I guess that once you have an action figure, you're no longer obscure, just not as well known by some! Although I think Booster Gold would try to argue... :D
