JLI - Ice Redesign by Femmes-Fatales JLI - Ice Redesign by Femmes-Fatales
Justice League International redesigns, part 2 of 8.

Having asked you all pick your favourite reserve Justice League members from a selective list, Ice landed second last. Out of 70 votes, she received a low 7.

Hailing from a small Nordic kingdom, Tora Olafsdotter is a Princess who is known for her kindness and sincerity. A constant fixture in European tabloids, Tora's international tours have drawn a lot of press and has endeared her to the world. When the US government paired with the United Nations tasked Amanda Waller with putting together a metahuman strike force, Tora was chosen due to her popularity, reasoning that she would give the team a likeability and would lead the public to trust this Justice League. However, Tora was largely untrained in physical combat but was a master of her unique ice-casting abilities. Nevertheless, Waller required Tora to pass several tests and specifically had Tora train with the team's top agent -- Beatriz da Costa. Despite their differences, Tora and Beatriz became quick friends. Upon passing her tests, Tora adopted the codename 'Ice' while Beatriz took to being called 'Fire.'

Ice's redesign here is obviously a marriage of her various outfits. I wanted to create something streamlined that could pass for some kind of spysuit. It should be practical. While I initially toyed with giving her a furry hooded shrug, I eschewed that in favour of a cute fuzzy scarf. I think it really highlights her personality a little better. Her design is conservative and girlish. I also decided to keep the little iceberg logo on her chest as well. You'll notice that each member of the JLI in this series will have some kind of logo on their costume. It's a way to allow the public to brand them and recognize them. I also decided to keep Ice's hair cropped short but not too short. It's essentially a modern take on her classic hairstyle. I actually based it off of a haircut "actress" Katie Holmes once had.

Remember, all the other DC Comics redesigns can be found in my gallery. Also, all biographic information here is a speculative and create re-envisioning of what I would do with the character so naturally it's non-canon.

Enjoy! :)

Not really sure what that means but it sounds like a good thing so I'll take it.

If you've read the comment box, you'll see that the order of the pieces is determined by the related poll I had on my page so to see the sequencing all you have to do is check that out. :)

just think the two should come in a pair, since that's how they usually work in the DCU. I love those two, especially since Fire's fire is green colored! Awesome

Despite the fact that they're very much associated, Fire has proven to have more popularity than Ice for some reason. In previous polls where they've both been involved, Fire always gets more votes and her drawings have generally received more favs.

that's sad, I think fire wants to stay with her bestie, don't keep them apart.

btw, love your Huntress, she is the epitome of a badass superheroine

I imagine part of why Fire's popularity extends a little further than Ice's is that Fire is more sexualized so there are some people who gravitate towards her for her physical appearance. It's sad, but true.

Yeah, Huntress is pretty badass. Although, I wouldn't say she's the only "epitome of a badass" in comic books especially when you consider the fact that she's part of a company that features Wonder Woman and Black Canary as well as D-listers like Lady Shiva.

fire is pretty sexualized, but Ice usually has a giant cleavage window that rivals powergirl's
