Wow. That is a lot of knowledge and research you just shared and a tip of the longbox lid for how thorough you were in stating your references. I don't know what to say, really. Whether meant tongue-in-cheek or as an honest discourse on a comic book character and how her handling over her various appearances can be explained right down to the loss of her chosen and almost always inappropriate footwear, your commentary is just plain awesome.
I appreciate your candor and your explanations are both fun and workable especially given the source material. I suspect that the person who originally commissioned this and the other Task Force X and Karin-centric pieces would probably have a better understanding of all that information but I'm glad to walk away from this having learned a little something more about not just this work but the whole of the Task Force X.
If the former, that's one of the better Mechani-Kong's I've ever seen, making 'him' look truly like there's an evil intellegence in that robotic face of his.
My favourite element of the entire piece, personally, has to be the fashion and folds. Gadgets aside, the fashion of each character makes me intrigued about who they are and what they do. What's the time period, by the way? I'm not sure who or what Task force X is, so forgive my layman predisposition.
Task Force X was DC's original Suicide Squad formed to fight monsters, aliens, and other-worldly foes. Just a group of unique, non-powered people they had to rely on their wits and gadgets to overcome the challenges set before them. The time period is set sometime in the 1960's and I tried my best to capture the look and feel of the cool sci-fi/monster movies of that era.
