Red Hornet by Mijder Red Hornet by Mijder
Before there was Domino Comics, or even Paper Asylum, there was the Red Hornet. The Red Hornet was a Hank Pym ripoff that I created for my elementary school newspaper (we were the Hollywood Hornets, get it). In his previously untold and brief career he saved the life of the President from a mad man bent on assassination. I say "untold" because after intially accepting my submission the comic was vetoed by the school principal as it was "not appropriate for a school newspaper to feature someone trying to kill the President".
I post this here now basically because voirdire99 dared me. I have reproduced the character as faithfully as possible from memory.

Yeah, I dared him and I got no regrets! No regrets at all, I tell ya!

And that's mostly cuz the design is great. I wouldn't change a thing, not even the smirk. My design is for a pulp hero who fell from grace, like if the Shadow or Green Hornet finally gave into some corruption and just descended down the spiral into villainy. But this guy is all hero and he damn well looks the part. I'd love to see what that zapper in his hand can do!

Ooooh, that could be interesting. A crossover between a clean cut hero and a fallen-from-grace former-hero-turned-corrupt-enforcer for the local rackets. Just put 'em both a in a room and see what happens.

"Hey, you're no relation to that Red Hornet from back in the day are you? Because that sort of thing doesn't fly around here...eh...pardon the pun."

"What Red Hornet?"

It'd be a cool cover at least.

THE RED HORNET OF TWO WORLDS!

Done like the Flash of Two Worlds classic, but my guy would be doing a drug deal.

Man, now I am wanting to write something with this guy or Black Icarus. If only someone would take a swing at drawing him to motivate me.
