#16 Ladyhawke

| November 13, 2010 | 0 Comments

This is another Michelle Delsante co-creation, but I like where she went with the design (created, almost, immediately after I did Spacehawk). She did the design, I came up with the name and character background. Who says marriage is like creating comics? Me, that’s who!

Concept: Ladyhawke (Lizzy Scott) was a superhero in her own right (formerly known as #4, from the Siren 6), defending the innocent and fighting evil on the streets of Boston. And then she met Spacehawk. A (literal) whirlwind romance ensued and the two married. Ladyhawke changed her costume to match that of her husband’s. And even though they spend most of their time apart (due to his condition), their marriage is as strong as ever.

Design: I should really ask Michelle what she was thinking with the design, since it was her idea, but I can tell that it’s a feminine version of Spacehawk. She doesn’t have any powers (except for her gauntlet/gloves, which doubles the kinetic energy of her punches).  Her outfit is made of an alien chain-mail that absorbs energy.

About the Author ()

I'm not exactly sure what I should put here, so here goes. I'm a writer, written for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, AdHouse Books, and Simon & Schuster, among others and his stories have been reprinted in other countries. Mostly concentrating on creator owned work right now, so the challenge suits me just fine. I live in Queens (Astoria/LIC), NY with my wife, Michelle, and two dogs, Kasey and Kirby. I'm not sure what else needs to be said, but I'm sure I'll keep changing this. Oh, here's something. I contribute to the Project Rooftop site. The RetroFix column was kind of my idea, so I feel like that experience will help me out here.
