DC Redesigns by SplendorEnt DC Redesigns by SplendorEnt
New looks for different characters in the DCU; a self-indulgent take on some of DC's most iconic.

Batman: I wanted him to look like a dark knight (a detective of vengeance). He has armor and a retractable cowl. His grapple hook isn't attached to his utility belt, and I updated said utility belt to be more high-tech. Instead of having shark-repellent hidden in his many pouches and pockets, he has a computer that is controlled by the various buttons on his belt. They can be used to signal Bats (high frequency), turn on the Batsignal, disable all the lights in the area (high frequency), SOS, GPS, and off course store his Batarangs. Also, Josh Brolin should play Batman.

Joker: Not Nicholson. Not Ledger. Not even Hamill. My version is inspired from Alex from Clockwork Orange, Marilyn Manson, and androgynous creepy serial killers (I'm sure they exist somewhere...). I figured Jack (or whoever is behind that makeup) was handsome before his "accident" and tried to cover it up with make up ("he's always smiling"). I mostly wanted to capture the flare and grandeur the clown prince of crime is known for.

Superman: High tech clothes, not armor, just Kryptonian fabric that's enhanced by the yellow sun. I still like the idea that the costume is contained in the :superman: and spreads when Kent is ready to make the transition (triggered by hormones, adrenaline, blood pressure, science etc.). It was either this, or a pair of long-johns and a red baby blanket.

Aquaman: Talking to fish doesn't sound cool (because it's lame), but if you think about it, there are a lot of creatures in the deep we don't know about. Aquaman is the that BAMF tells leviathan what to do. Atlantis is kind of Greek in nature, so I made him "Poseidon: the superhero" (which made an epic beard and a trident almost-mandatory). Played by Gerard Butler.

SHAZAM: Man-child with super powers. I figured that his SHAZAM state would reflect his personality (similar to my Green Lantern theory). So I imagined that his costume would be inspired by pop culture's take on heroes (anime hair and fingerless gloves)

Thanks for checking out my work, it makes me feel good.

Most of this looks pretty sweet. I like the Batman design all around, Joker makes me think of a mix of Beyond and The Batman's Joker, which is cool. He's got a more super heroey type look than the usual mobster style, so it's interesting. The spats are cool.

I like Supes. I've mentioned to you how much I like the gold buckle so you know that :P I like the bracers. A bit of red on the sleeves is sweet
Aquaman looks sweet. I like that metal arm sleeve. He looks really sleek, so I feel like the beard is a pinch too long. That's just me, though.
Is Captain Marvel's bolt just a design, or is it supposed to be under the button over part?

Thanks, I wanted him to look like a semi-futuristic ninja knight (that way he can stand side by side with Superman, Wonder Woman, and co.).

Joker, I wanted to be somewhat flashy, yet refined in a creepy way.

Gold would work really well for a inherited Kryptonian look.

I debated on the beard length as well. I wasn't sure if I wanted a Poseidon, Leonidas, or Maximus beard.

The lightning bolt is a stylized button.

Thanks for the compliments.

Oh so it's like the snap for the fold in the fabric? Or it's like a separate piece of old geometry?

Shazam is the name of the Wizard who give Billy his powers. His hero name is Captain Marvel.
