Happy New Year all!

It's that time again to share with you all my various blog posts from the past month. In addition to some reviews, I've also written a helpful reading guide featuring the twenty best Storm-centric X-Men stories and a list of the five best X-Men spin-off titles. Another post worth mentioning is the Top 10: Greatest Women of DC Comics, which was a list compiled using your votes from The Women of the DC Universe Poll. I'm still really, really looking to get more votes for its Marvel companion The Women of Marvel Poll, so if you haven't placed your votes yet please do so at your earliest convenience by clicking on that link. It would be greatly appreciated. :)

In the meantime, you can read my blog posts by clicking on the links below.

Avengers - Wasp Redesign by Femmes-Fatales
Avengers - Wasp Redesign
This is the eighth piece in my redesigned Avengers series.

After taking a lengthy break in my Avengers redesign series, I decided to re-think the line-up I'd settled on. I wanted to go with a more traditional roster that would be iconic, but would also pay homage to one of my favourite decades for comic books (the 1980s!). That's when I knew I needed to include Janet van Dyne, otherwise known as the Wasp. She's really the glue that keeps the team together and is the ideal candidate for being second-in-command. Plus, she's a fashion-centric character and you all know how much I like that.

Since I wanted to pay tribute to the 1980s, I pulled up Wasp's Bronze Age costume and used that as a basis for my redesign. I tried to make it more modern, thus putting in elements of her Ultimate look. Overall, this particular uniform consists of a special kevlar woven bodysuit that features an open back for her wings to grow out of. She accessorizes this with a yellow vest, which adds further protection, with matching gloves and boots. Since Jan is such a fashion focused heroine, I knew that she'd be a character I could get away with giving heels. Other than that I decided to pull further elements from her Ultimate self in terms of her ethnicity, thus making her biracial (Caucasian-Asian).

Avengers - She-Hulk Redesign by Femmes-Fatales
Avengers - She-Hulk Redesign
This is the seventh piece in my redesigned Avengers series.

It's been quite a few months since I last did an Avengers redesign, but I figured now was as good a time as any to jump back in. As some of you may remember, my Avengers redesigns were intended to be part of a rebooted Marvel Universe of my own imagining. Since then, I've revisited those ideas and have come up with a revamped version of the Avengers. This means that some of the previously featured Avengers aren't part of the line-up. As part of this brand new line-up, I've decided to include the Jade Giantess - She-Hulk! This decision came to me after she took home the crown in my Women of Marvel Poll. Not only that, but she's a much more classic and iconic choice. Her inclusion also pays homage to her cousin as one of the founding members.

She-Hulk is such a unique and distinctive character, so it was definitely a challenge to come up with something for her to wear. She's most closely associated with her purple and white bodysuit, so I obviously played with that look and tried to come up with something new. Since I actually quite like Red She-Hulk's leather suit, I decided to borrow that aesthetic and married it with Jen's. Coincidentally, she ended up looking a bit like a WWE Diva (which I'm totally cool with).

As always, feel free to leave thoughtful comments below. :)

Huntress Redesign by Femmes-Fatales
Huntress Redesign
Part ten, The Women of the DC Universe Redesigned.

As many of you know, I've been redesigning the women of the DC Universe based on a line-up chosen by you all through a poll posted in my gallery. According to your votes Huntress ranked tenth, narrowly knocking the Teen Titans' Raven out of the top ten. For those of you who are curious as to who else made the top ten, you can check out the results of the poll on my blog by clicking on the following link: divas-femmes-fatales.blogspot.… .

I have redesigned Huntress a couple of times before and it's always been such a huge challenge. For some reason, I find her difficult to design for. Sadly, I feel this effort wasn't as on point as previous efforts. Nevertheless, what I wanted to do was to combine all three of her most iconic looks into one ensemble. I made sure to give her a look that suits her character, which meant giving her a bodysuit with a special lightweight kevlar weave with extra padding on the torso. She's completed the look with malleable armour boots and gloves, as well as a flowing cape. On any given mission, she brings with her a combat knife (located on her ankle), a bostaff, a belt full of gadgets and her trusty crossbow. I also put her hair into a ponytail as I figure it's mildly more practical than having it whipping about everywhere.

Just as with any redesign, I also tend to re-imagine the context and narrative of a character. Since there are two versions of Huntress (Helena Wayne and Helena Bertinelli), I've lately been thinking about what it would be like to combine the two. What if Helena Bertinelli was in fact the result of an affair between Martha Wayne and Franco Bertinelli? She'd be Helena Wayne, Batman's half-sister. That way you still get the mob daughter, but you also have her linked to the Wayne legacy. I think that'd be badass!
