YOUNG JUSTICE: Captain Marvel by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: Captain Marvel by philbourassa
An early rough I drew of Captain Marvel, very shortly after the show was picked up. I love drawing this guy, easily one of the most charming characters in the history of American comics.
Captain Marvel and Young Justice is trademark and copyright DC comics and WB animation.

I'm a 3D Character Modeling student. Would it be okay if I did a 3D model of this? Mahalo, in advance!

i hate how he's always underpowered and he's supposed to have the power of zeus so why can he never someone wind, rain or lightning

is it any different than the actual show's art?

Ok, i sometimes like Captain Marvel in Young Justice and he can be funny and innocent from time to time, but a lot of the time I hate him so much because he can make some serious stupid mistakes; in Batman/Superman: Public Enemies he joins Lex Luthor and battles Superman and Batman like a dumb little shit and even pulls a fast one on Batman :rage: and in Justice League Unlimited it's thanks to his stupidity that enabled Luthor and Amanda Waller to continue their plan to take down the Justice League and make Superman out to be a menace :steaming:

I know people can excuse him because he's a 10-year-old kid and he doesn't know better, but he's a member of the Justice League and has a wizard's wisdom at his disposal!!! :fork: NERD-RAGE!!!

I think you missed the point of that justice league unlimited episode, Superman played right into Lex Luthor's hand, Captain Marvel tried to make Superman keep a level head a stick to his principles.
ilove78213 Featured By Owner May 29, 2013
That's true. I stand corrected. I guess I only hated him in Batman/Superman: Public Enemies along with a few other superheroes when he fought Supes and Bats.

But I do love Captain Marvel in the short animated film where he fought Black Adam :)

trajan75 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Captain Marvel was not originally a DC hero. He came on as a rival to Superman and was very successful. Then a Federal Judge made a, in my opinion, incorrect decision in a copyright case which essentially shut down Captain Marvel until DC published its version.

My favorite DC hero next to Batman!

Great job with the design.

I always wondered why he had a personnality like a little boy. And j then I watched that alpha male episode and at the end, he transformed into a little boy! I was like: OH MY GOD!!!!!!

BTW: Awesome drawing!

Just recently "discovered" Captain Marvel. Such a great Hero. Shazzam!
xthesundancekidx Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
I love the character Captain Marvel (particularly how Alex Ross portrays him), but I feel like they kinda made him look too childish in YJ, I get that he's really 10 yr old boy Billy Batson but when he turns into Captain Marvel, he's a man so he shouldn't act like a little kid right?
hermy104 Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
But in his mind he's still ten years old. And before he revealed himself, he managed to keep them fooled for long enough. And we need some more smiling in the JL, anyway, they're all so stoic.
xthesundancekidx Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
fair enough
SwellKeyboard Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012
captain marvel is the ultimate comic book mindfuck, he's named captain marvel, and he's a DC character
Zeruzu Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012
That's cuz he was created before the Marvel company
big-nige Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
marvel owned the rights to the captain marvel name which is why for a long time dc stories about captain marvel were under the name shazam
OneWingedShark Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012
Indeed! (Good job, btw.)

I agree that Captain Marvel is one of the more "charming" of DC superheros. I've loved all of his animated appearances and he's just far more likable than the rest of the Justice League. I'd love to see him in a live-action movie, but they really need to keep his name as Captain Marvel and not rename him "Shazam" as I hear they are in the comic-books.
airiteach Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
But Shazam is the guy that gave him his powers. That might be a little awkward.
OneWingedShark Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
My point exactly.
And it'd be horrible because he couldn't ever answer "who are you?" without triggering his transformation. (They really weren't thinking about things with that.)
Pol-Rua Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012
And that's a really charming picture, too. Casual and confident without being cocky.
Beautifully executed.

Nice take on the character!

Sweet! I'm a fan of the Young Justice series and Captain Marvel is one of my favourites from the Justice League.
I love the second season though honestly, I still have moments where I'm just sitting there completely confused... and I miss Kid Flash. But I still enjoy it :)

And Blue Beetle has to be my favourite in the second season!
... But probably a pain to draw

Cap is so cuuuute in Young Justice. He just wants to be part of the teeeeeam.

In my head I ship BillyXWally since he is just so cute and helpful.
nad2005 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2011
Ah, Captain Marvel. In the original JLU, I didn't like him very much because he felt too forced, like there wasn't anything natural about him.

In the Young Justice version, I grew too really like him because he's so natural. In this series, he is a superhero but also a kid, and he tries to find a place to fit in(which is what everyone would try). He can't do that with the Justice League for obvious reasons so he tries to make friends with heroes closer to his age. I like how he is that pillar of strength and confidence in the team but also keeps his human self as well, and doesn't just switch between them like two people in one body.

I love how you made him an adult but still kept his boyishness! :)
Coluber Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
I love Captain Marvel, but I just wish he wasn't depicted in such a childish way. Billy Batson himself is more mature than his years let on...
mags-rose Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2011
Captain Marvel was so sweet and charming last episode. I hope he shows up more. This guy needs to be in more stuff! Seriously one of the most underrated characters ever.
