A New Superhero?

Have you ever wanted to dress up as a comic book character on a day that wasn't Halloween? Well, thanks to the brilliant artist over at Living Canvas, last week your humble blogger did exactly that.

But as you will see, its wasn't as any comic book character you know. In this case WGTB asked the artist to be creative and
simply paint a "comic-book-style design" on the face. The only conditions were that he needed to be someone who doesn't wear a spandex suit and is someone who carries or walks with a cane WITH possibly even has a long-term mobility impairment. Disabled comic book heroes have a dubious history and WGTB believes the time has come for a first-rate ACTION-based disabled hero.

WGTB hasn't quite settled on the name of the character. We're thinking "Dr. Abstract" but if you have any suggestions, please let us know. He seems like a cross between the Green Hornet, the Question and Professor X. Although he's a hero, we also see a physical resemblance to Mr. Sinister, Harvey Dent and even a little of the Joker.

Dr. Abstract

Skills: Intelligence, Leadership, Martial Arts, Organization. We figure he's a Crown Prosecutor or District Attorney in his 'spare time'.

Weapons: His Mind, A Sword Cane, Advanced Tools and Weapons, and Peak Physical Conditioning

Justice, Duty, Rorschach-style Vengeance

LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! Oh, and here's his Super-Soundtrack: an amazing song called "Kathy's Song" by the Norwegian future-pop band Apoptygma Berzerk.
