Captain Marvel

Marvel Comics
by Lars

Son of the Kree hero Mar-Vell, Genis-Vell adopted his father's "Captain Marvel" identity and all that went with it, going slightly insane in the process.

This costume was actually designed by Alex Ross as a throwback to the original (obscure) Captain Marvel uniform. Other than the starfield, which suggests his "cosmic awareness," the biggest change was to take the ring from the planet on his chest and turn it into a full bandolier.

This guy used to be the ML3 Magneto, as you may be able to tell from the shoulders. Resin was used to build up the boots and gloves, and his holster is cut vinyl. The helmet is a bit thicker than Magneto's version, thanks to more resin, and the fin on the top is just a quick cut-out. Trying to paint all those stars individually is insane, so your best bet is to dip the tips of the bristles of an old toothbrush in white paint, then hold it near the figure and run your thumb along the bristles, letting the paint spatter onto the figure - obviously, you'll want to paint the green after this step. If you want a few larger stars, go in and spot them yourself afterwards.
