I've gotta admit, this particular villain cracks me up. Hopefully those of you reading this will enjoy him as well.

I had originally planned for a different look for him, but when the 'Retro Future' came out for the Scott 6 character (of which he is a variant), I just had to use it. It goes so well with this guy, as you will see in a few pages.

I mean, he's at least nice to people (who aren't Liberty Lass).

He's actually not a horrible person. Just a bit... off. As you will see in the coming pages.

I hope this jet-pack is well aimed, considering how high the exhaust seem to be... could be hard on his rear end xD

Abby just tear that rocket off his back & stick it up his butt & your work will be done.

This is definitely one of the oddest villain's I have ever seen. I think even his kidnap victims are asking themselves "Do we actually have to stay?"

Well they don't have to stay but... you can bet they will, since now they get to watch a super-fight.

I actually see this happening a lot. Just human nature to watch something like that.

LOL @ the Editor's note. Nice little details.

Thanks. They don't do it much at all anymore, but in the Bronze Age comics had editor's notes all the time to explain things to the reader so you weren't confused. (Today, they seem to prefer that you be confused.)

I too like the Editor's Note. Accommodating and addressing the "reality" of hair on female superheros is a nice touch. And I further appreciate the expense and trouble you took to include the alternative hair detail. That's probably a whole new hair prop in the DAZ store, and may have required a lot of tweaking to make it look like Abbey's hair in the iRay renderer. Well done.

The biggest problem with that ponytail model is that it clips the darn goggles. But I was able to use a d-former to push it out of the way. Once done, it's fine. So I made a pre-saved version of LL with this hair and the d-former and I load it into each scene as needed.

Tweaking the colors was more of an issue -- mainly because this hair behaves inconsistently in different lighting. Change the lighting, and the hair looks a different color. Now this is true to some extent for all hair (including real life) but it seems worse with this model than the other 3 hair models (Alicia, Desidera, and Sporty braid) I have used for her.
