Getting a few characters knocked out before I head out to Germany for a couple months. Reflex here is one from my superhero concept, the Omega Sect, from a book tentatively titled 'Opposite Sects'
That title is me being 'clever.'
Anyway, I've been wanting to re-design his armor for awhile. As I was packing for Germany I came across my copy of 'Batmobile: The Complete History,' and -- ever the victim of ADD that I am -- took some inspiration from the design of the Tumbler to design his new armor. I always loved the look of the Tumbler and especially its partial inspiration coming from the Stealth Bomber and Stealth Fighter. I love the plated look of the Tumbler's armor and synapses starting firing and ... A few hours later we've got Reflex's new armor.
Well, maybe more than a few hours.
I'm still thinking of throwing his cape back on him. It's good for misdirection and such and I could maybe put some kind of fancy-shmancy pattern on it to imply that it's got some camouflage capabilities. I also think the contrast would look cool.
So while his new outfit is pretty Dark Knight-looking, it was actually inspired by Batman's ride. I just can't decide what to do for his mask now. It was originally just a tied-on domino mask, then I used face paint, but whatever I do needs to fit with the plated armor look. Maybe I should go with a helmet ... What do y'all think?
Now I just need to re-design his brother's armor, too ...
