So here's the deal. There is an obscure character named Dr. Skull whose arch-enemy was the Red Blazer. Here is some 4-1-1 from a public domain character site:
"Dr. Skull was apparently an alien scientist who wished to conquer the earth, and commanded a fleet of spaceships that was successful in bombing Washington D.C. He was a recurring enemy of The Red Blazer who he wished to destroy.
Dr. Skull enjoyed being carried or wheeled around, but he was actually fairly agile. He flew around in a space ship, built a headquarters in the side of a mountain cliff, and possessed a number of technological wonders, including a handheld ray gun. He was a highly intelligent scientist and invented a super drug that made men fearless. He was aided by a small army of human slaves and kept trained animals including an ape named Bolo and a team of huge and vicious tracking dogs."
Here is what he originally looked like:
If ever there was a comic book character from the public domain that was ripe for a re-design, it is this guy.
His name just cries out for something spooky and terrifying, esp as this is the month of October!
Deadline is Tuesday, October 22nd around 11:00 PM Central Standard Time USA.
Any medium accepted.
Looking forward to the awesome entries for this one.
