Here are some of our lower level bad guys. This is where the design process got a little more fun, because we were able to push the shapes and looks on a few of the characters and play a little bit. As a designer, it's a joy to work on more exaggerated characters sometimes. In direct contrast, I find it to be incredibly challenging to come up with a suitable look for an iconic character like Superman, for instance, because there is very little margin for error or interpretation. He has to be perfect, basically. These other guys allow for a little more freedom and exploration.
Elongated man was designed by Jerome Moore[link] In this case I just gave Jerome a really rough silhouette to work from and let him go from there. He did some pretty fun alternatives to this design as I recall.
We were lucky also, to have Steve Jones doing the ink cleanup on these models. Steve is an incredibly talented character designer who has been working in animation for over 10 years.

I love this version of WW, it gives her a real ancient warrior look and not the modern stars and stripes look... Wish we would get her a sidekick or something with a look like this in the future...

I don't understand why Superwoman's counterpart was changed from Wonder Woman to Mary Marvel for the movie the only thing it does is justify Earth-3's Marvel Mamily counterparts liking her boots it becomes worse when you look at some of the images of the other "maid men" and a "Mary Mayhem" makes a cameo

I saw the movie years ago and loved it. Was a bit disappointed that it was so short but the script and quality animation made up for it.

In this film Olympia is WW's analogue, Mary Marvel was Superwoman for this film it's reversed for the comics though. Also Extruded Man is Elongated Man's counterpart not Plastic Man.

Superwoman is the alternative of Mary Marvel. If u see the movie yove got, Captain Super, Uncle Super, and Captain Super Jr. Olympia is the alternative of WW because of her name. Olympus? Olympia? See the simalarities?

really? I thought Mary Mayhem was Mary Marvel's opposite, Superwoman was Wonder Woman's and Olympia was Donna Troy's... Olympia looks a little young to be WW's opposite.

They actually took some liberties for the movie. Olympia is like Mary (brunette) as an Amazon and Super Woman is like Diana (jet black hair, more powerful, member of the league) as a Marvel-ish character. The writers flipped their origins essentially in the alternate dimention in order to have SW have her harem of supermen.

I watched this a few months ago and was thrilled throughout the episode to compare and contrast the visual designs and personality changes in so many characters, even if they only appeared on screen for a second or two. (Believe me, your staff's attention to detail on all those blink-and-miss-it characters WAS appreciated!)


That one stand-alone show must have been really satisfying to work on. ("Hey, guys? Most of these villainous parallel universe characters are going to either be dead or separated off forever in that other universe by the end of the show, right? Sooooo, why NOT make an evil, brutish Jimmy Olson or give Ralph a mohawk? Oooo! What about the old school Shazam family with...")

Thank YOU, Steve Jones! I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten such a strong crew from top to bottom on Crisis. You guys are all heavy weights, and I could not have posssibly gone the distance without your support. So once again, thank you for giving one hundred percent to the process everyday, it is much appreciated.

Just had to create an evil counterpart for everyone in the Watchtower didn't you? Well done, sir, well done.

Archer's got a great red/black design (personal favorite color scheme). And Olympia's armor makes her seem like a true Themysciran warrior, whereas Wonder Woman's suit always made me think of America.

Fantastic work yet again.
