Crime Syndicate by philbourassa Crime Syndicate by philbourassa
Here we have the main cast of bad guys for our film. I based the costumes design on some rough conceptual sketches Bruce had done about 5 years ago, when this piece was originally intended as a bridge between Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
We made a few tweaks and alterations here and there, but for the most part I stayed pretty faithful to the original ideas.
Bad guys are fun! Major props to Dusty Abell for the slick ink clean-up line over my pencils.

Yeah I loved the movie ! Realy good design for those folks espacially for johnny quick =) !
When you talk about Bruce, it's not Bruce Wayne right ? I know it's a bit of a silly question but it took me time to understand what you were saying><.
Anyway that's cheerful to see some classy vilains !

Ultraman's design is what I do NOT understand.  He is Superman's counterpart, so how can he be taller?  Why did you make his symbol a simple letter "U"?  His symbol in the original trade paperback was a U within the inverted diamond, which was appropriate given the character's nature.  After all, you did replicate Owlman's costume.

:-? (Confused)

I don't know, why is Johnny Ginger when Barry is Blonde?

Johnny is Ginger because his counterpart is Wally, who is also Ginger.

Why did you give Ultra Man more muscles than Superman, eyeshadows, angrier eyebrows, a more crooked nose, and lower cheekbones? Did you really have to make it THAT obvious he is supposed to be evil? Couldn't he just have looked like Superman, but with different clothes and hairstyle? Do we really need the taboo ongoing about how evil people always must obviously LOOK evil? Even if it's based on Bruce's rough sketches, there was no reason for you not to improve on that silly prejudice thing, wouldn't you say? No disrespect meant, I appreciate and admire your work. :)

Something I've wondered about since I first saw this movie, was Ultraman's look based on Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino? I've seen GOODFELLAS and given Ultra has that whole mafioso persona going on...

If you do a little research you will discover that DC comics Owlman was created many years before Watchmen was ever written.

Not much left unsaid here, but still want to thank you and everyone involved for making "Crisis on two Earths", which by now one would think would be have become another "Mirror, Mirror" adventure one could take or leave, into something fresh and invigorated.

As a longtime Shazam! fan, I'm thankful for your (back-handed?) tribute of Superwoman-as-evil mary Marvel. Mildly curious if the House of (Stale) Ideas' Ms. Marvel/Binary/Warbird wasn the catalyst for that decision.

I thought Power Ring's gizmo was not an actual ring, but a wrist-gizmo connected to a circlet on the bakc of his hand. Glad to have gotten a better look at him... visually anyway. Some reviewers complained that, as opposed to the John Stewart-GL, the Green Lantern we saw here was just kinda filling out the cast, and Power Ring wasn't much different. I don't think we got a good feel for his character and motivations like the other Syndicators.
