Let's take a moment out of our busy day and appreciate the art of Ken Kelly.

Marvel / DC Mashup: Captain Kal-Ell

Baby Kal-El's rocket ends up on the Kree home-world. He is brought up by the Supreme Intelligence to be the champion of the empire. This is an older idea I had from back when I was a frequent contributor to the "Super-Buddies" message board.

The Bat

So this started out as something else. I was inspired by a panel by José Luis García-López. When I think about it now, I am just as confused as to how it got to this point as you may be. I REALLY wanted to capture the dynamic feel of José'sSuperman coming in for a landing. [...]

In the end, the project was troubled and it never came to fruition–I don’t have enough time here to give chapter-and-verse on it, something that I may cover at some later date.
