Hey everybody, Joe Daxberger back for week 3 of the Stock*pile Character Redesign project. And this is clearly the most obscure character I’ll probably ever tackle; Snowflame. Stock*pile’s own Kansas went into the depths of DC Comics lore for me on this one, here’s his write-up: This short lived DC villain is famous for his non-power powers. Let’s see what you can do.
So I had never heard of Snowflame before and a quick search gave me plenty of info. Looks like Mr Flame here is powered by cocaine. Yes, cocaine. Here’s some more info from the internets:
History: Snow Flame’s first and only appearance was against the New Guardians when they attempted to stop his drug cartel. Snow Flame easily bested the team in their first battle against him after he ordered his men to simply shoot the heroes. The heroes survived and faced off against Snow Flame once more. This time they did much better and after a chaotic battle Snow Flame was tossed into a shed which promptly exploded. He was assumed dead and never seen again.
Powers: Snow Flame is able to increase his strength and cover himself in white fire when he ingests cocaine. He also claimed that his strength increased the more he fought. It’s unknown how he gained these powers.
There you go. He does tons of blow and lights on fire.
So with that I got to work. I thought his original get-up is way too red, so I went for some more colors with mine. I was mainly inspired color-wise by something that barely goes together like snow and flame, which is Icy and Hot. Plenty of contrast with the blue and red just like IcyHot, with a good amount of white to sell the “snow” aspect. I can imagine him being all types of strung out on coke wandering around a mall and buying those boots with flames on them that you would find in Hot Topic as well. Then I gave him one of those puffy winter vests, because even though he’s dressed in a leotard, I’m under the impression that when you sniffing that snow white pretty hard, you have trouble regulating your body temperature LINK. Lastly I gave him some utility pouches on his wrists, that are easy to get at for his “supplies” with those gnarly coke nails I gave him.
So hopefully I’ve done this one-hit wonder justice, maybe DC will pull him out of obscurity next time they reboot their entire universe. Again. For like the fifth time.
This is awesome. Love the coke-nail addition.
