Justice League Redesign by MattWelch Justice League Redesign by MattWelch
So I redesigned the league.
The ones requiring the most explanation are:
Martian Manhunter: If you're a shapeshifter... why should your original shape resemble anything else at all?
Batman: All that money and the mantra "criminals and cowardly and superstitious lot" I think Bats could do a better job at making himself look like a scary bat creature.
Cyborg: In this day and age why is his original design so clunky? In this version he has access to his "ark": a large container of upgrades and additions he can equip if need be.

Hi. My first reaction was not so happy, but after I read your comment, I thoughtyou were right, in your own way. I mean for Batman, I completely agre, yeah, so I now understand your design. Pretty cool. andfor J'onn, I really laughed but you are right, why not?
What I noticed the most was Superman. So, you counterbalanced the lack of yellow belt by a yellow interior cape ? Your design is neat I think, but when I take the cape off, I think the small yellow dots on the boots could have been also around the belt area. Well, neat stuff anyway :)

INLOVE with Cyborg and the Martian. Great twist on GL and Bats but I'm not sure about Supes, Wonder Woman and Flash. Nice work though, it's neat to see some originality. Oh and by the way that links broken, or you've deleted the page :(

Thanks! I think I'll have to redo this some day and do a new breakdown.
I hadn't even noticed the broken link. Thanks for pointing it out.

My pleasure, I especially enjoyed your Batman idea with the mouth opening and a light shattering scream coming out.

Hmm.

Aquaman is interesting, like it, Flash is also pretty cool, like Cyborg a great deal, and your Superman is not only close to the upcoming film version [link] but actually a bit cooler. Green Lantern is also pretty cool.

For the last three, I will be a bit more in-depth. I AM intrigued by this version of Martian Manhunter. After all, who's to say Martians would even be humanoid? And he's a shape-shifter, so it's a nice neutral form.

Batman, I do NOT like so much. Don't really know why, but I feel that the red jaw doesn't work too well with the rest of his outfit, and I personally would have gone with more bat-like claws for the feet (as these are a bit insectoid for my taste). The rest is fine.

Last but not least, Wonder Woman. I frickin' LOVE your Wonder Woman. Far more practical hairstyle, better armor, and clothing that evokes "Greek heroine" as opposed to "Lady in a bathing suit". More than that, her pose, expression, and musculature all suggests "I prefer to be peaceful, and you'd prefer me to be peaceful too."

Thanks for the comment. In hindsight I think you're correct about Batman's feet. I was just thinking "be creepy as possible" but more batlike should have done that all on it's own.
Thanks!
