Here is Ikaris, one of the most important characters in the Marvel Universe, and most prominent character in the Eternals comics. Made with a OMAC DC Classics and Ronin head.
This is Scorpio, one of the most prominent members of the Zodiac gang. Normally I don't like too much the idea of the Zodiac as in Marvel as I'am a big fan of the Knights of the Zodiac japanese anime, but this member in his modern style looked cool and was perfect to make with Ronin.
The base figure is a Ronin with LOTR hood, Magneto cloak, epoxi here and there and a scratch made Zodiac key.
This is Torpedo, a superhero that first appeared in Daredevil comics and then was a regular character in the ROM comics. Very modern and stylish for his time, it is a pity it didn't live long enough.
The figure has been made over a Human Torch, Dr. Midnite hands and gloves, sculpted mask and roundels, and finally used tamiya clear red to paint the visor and leave it semi-translucid.
This is Qnax, a character that briefly appeared fighting against the Hulk. This guy is just screaming to be made with a Mongul, it has a astonishing resemblance to him.
It has been made with a Mongul figure, added a 5th finger, added belt, sanded and taken down some parts, sculpted goggles.
This is Ultimo, character I discovered seeing the 1994 Iron Man cartoon. To my surprise, it is a character that has appeared many times in the comics, and I thought it would make a cool and impressive action figure.
As usually, using a Wrestling 12 inches, made the head from scratch, sculpted feet, knee pads, chest, hands, and added tubes. Hope you like it.

Here is the Living Tribunal, in 6 inches. To make this character I used a Mr. Fantastic figure (I was unable to find a Silver Surfer) and it turned out to be perhaps a better base figure, as his face is very serious and dramatic, as the Living Tribunal should be. The rest of the faces are 100 % sculpting, and the shining star is a home-made decal. Not much more to say about him, besides I had to cut his neck and glue a clear brush stick to try and get the appearance of floating.
Here is the ever popular Jim Lee Cyclops. As I made a Jean Grey, it was matter of time to make Cyclops. The base figure is Bullseye, with Mr. Fantastic movie head, and fodder box pockets, all the rest epoxi.
After lots of work here it comes Madjack Marvel Icons style, standing 12 inches tall (a bit more with the air glider). It is based as in the ToyBiz Spiderman Classic figure, but with normal pumpkins instead of the oversized ones that ToyBiz made.
The head was completely sculpted from scratch, shoulder pads made out of a table tennis ball, pumpkins based on the Pre-ML Madjack, and glider made out of different junk I had lying around. All the rest is sculpting and some foamy.

I always thought the idea of Khonshu was one of the best interpretations of mythology in the Marvel Universe. It is interesting and my...
When I had in hand the Myth Cloth Hagen Merak figure, I saw it wasn't what I was expecting. Normally the Myth are either flawless or ...
Here is Lady Iron Fist, a female version of Iron Fist. The custom was made for the Gender Bender 2 Figurealm contest and it was 2nd.
