Note: I always wondered why Norman Osborn, with all the technology at his fingertips with Oscorp, that he only brought that to bear in his weapons and his Goblin Glider. Artist Kerwin Siméus explores just that, giving Osborn a high-tech mask as well as gloves — and even a place to store his glider. – Chris A.
Here’s what Siméus said about the design:
With this design I wanted to give Norman something sleek and workable should he want to operate without the glider or bag o’ tricks he carries around. He’s friggin’ rich, why not have a suit of armor? He can still fly via a hover/booster contraption on his back, and his fingertips can shoot lasers or spawn beam claws for close combat. And he doesn’t have to take off the suit to potty, either. Perks.
Note: After winning over the P:R staff and readers earlier this year with his rockabilly take on Batman & his extended cast, Denis Medri is back with another themed re-invisioning of a classic comics hero. In this outing, it’s Spider-Man meets steampunk as Medri takes a wrench to the webcrawler and his rogue’s gallery You can see how Medri’s put alot of thought into each of these designs, both in style and substance with the webshooters and various contraptions the villains use. Denis Medri — thank you! – Chris A.
