#21 Air Force 1.0

| November 18, 2010 | 2 Comments

This one came to me while I was watching football on Sunday.

Concept: In the near future, terrorists have destroyed the President’s airplane, so the country’s best engineers put their heads together and create an exo-suit for the President.  That’s right; the President is a superhero now.

Design: It’s red, white, blue and silver, which isn’t 100% US colors, but close enough.  Took down the original design, but I with the new one (above), I like what Drew brought to the table.  It looks less bulky and it could actually be worn.  It looks closer to what I had originally intended, so it’s really a matter of great minds thinking alike.

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.

  1. EveryZig says:

    As it turns out, there already is a character based on this concept. The main character in a video game, in fact. (unfortunately never released in the U.S.)


    Including dialogue such as:

    Michael: Jodie, how’s my schedule look for today?
    Jodie: You’ve got a conference and dinner party at the Japanese Embassy regarding wildlife protection.
    Michael: Oh, yeah…sorry, but I’ll have to cancel that. I’m heading out to SAVE AMERICA!

  2. Dammit, that was bound to happen, huh?
