Mephisto and his son Blackheart, respectively; both appear in Ghost Rider (although the film only refers to Mephisto as "Mephistopheles" or "the Devil").

Who is the guy to the left of Ducard and to the right of what I assume to be a very thin Michael Clarke Duncan's Kingpin. The pale guy in the black.

That is Mephisto, as he appears in Ghost Rider (in which he is only referred to as "Mephistopheles" or "the Devil").

These are simply awesome. I am in jealous awe of Publius' talents at drawing.

I feel kind of bad that I recognized Blackheart but didn't put it together that the other guy was Mephisto, and he was the only one I didn't figure out. :oops:

For the comic book movie villains, where's Colonel Stryker? (Brian Cox's Stryker looked a bit like Orson Scott Card, incidentally).
The Christian fundies don't like Muslim Anti Zionism and the Arab nationalists resent the Israeli presence in the Occupied Territories because no one likes to see someone else beat the living shyte out of one's red headed step sibling.

Stryker may well be a comic book movie villain, but he hardly qualifies as a supervillain.

King Arthur Pendragon

Sir Launcelot du Lac


Both suits of armor and the poses are taken directly fro Osprey Publishing's English Medieval Knight 1300-1400 due to the artist's unfamiliarity with the period dress and inability to draw any satisfying pose for either. The arms, however, are the traditional ones attributed since the fourteenth century (Azure, three crowns Or and Argent, three bendlets Gules). Both wear 14th century armor rather than the proper 8th/9th century armor largely because Sir Thomas Mallory imagined them in more contemporary fashions in Le Morte d'Arthur.

The Ash Williams one could use a redo, it's a bit smudged and it's hard to make out anything of his amputated hand.
The GR and James bond pictures are Very nice out of this batch.

You might want to consider practicing your heads more, they look a bit unnatural or unpracticed, in the framework of your distinctive style. (The last Luthor picture as an example that springs to mind from this page).

Ash's eyes are a bit off, but I still say FUCK YEAH!

The reason why his amputated hand is hard to make out of is because it's uncompleted, probably doesn't fit in the paper, or something.

Publius, I say you're awesome, and maybe you should try inking your drawings (srsly).

Sir, for drawing John Preston I can echo shroomz: you're awesome.

Though he looks extraordinarily pissed.

There may eventually be a 17th century group shot (similar to the previous three period group shots), probably including d'Artagnan (earlier in his career and in less stylized dress), the three Musketeers, Cyrano de Bergerac, and Cardinal de Richelieu.

Image

At long last, the Rocketeer. He was regrettably excluded from the 1930s group shot (mostly due to the artist forgetting to add him). Therefore, to that end:

The last few are great, but the Doctor's face really needs redoing, he looks as though he's in a Jack Napier inducted rictus.
Also, Mario should have slightly larger hands, or at least gloves (Same for his moustache, even Stalin had a larger 'Stache ;)).

Who is "Professor The Hon. John P. Ryan KCVO, Ph.D., CPA "?

The mask holes on the Dread Pirate Roberts look off. They are too big making his eyes look strange.
