#17 – Captain Star

| November 20, 2011 | 2 Comments


Captain Star is a character I came up with when I was a little kid. Back then, he had an underground base with a supercar and a super doggie sidekick. His uniform was red, white & blue with a big gold star on his chest. He was the first superhero I had created; I thought it would be cool to update him 30 years later. His current look comes from a design I did for a dead end project I worked on a few years ago. I always thought the suit was cool and a perfect fit for Captain Star. When I created him, he was just a Do-gooder, nothing to deep or dramatic. I was about 7 so nothing too complicated. But I thought it would be interesting to have a Superman type ‘hero’ who didn’t answer to countries or governments or operated within the laws of the land. He would save those who need saved, help the helpless, but also punish the guilty and eliminate those who pose a serious enough threat to global peace. No more peace talks, sanctions, negotiations, etc. in order to haggle out peace with dictators. Captain Star would drop down in the middle of a nasty dictator’s military parade of weapons, nukes and troops and would wipe everything off the map. Kind of WATCHMEN-esque, I suppose.

  1. I don’t know what it is, but whenever artists revisit their childhood ideas/creations, I always love it. Mike Wieringo used to on his blog, and I think that was the first time I noticed it. Love this guy, Gary.

  2. Nice design on this guy. Very cool.
