C is for Captain Marvel!!!!! by Mista-M C is for Captain Marvel!!!!! by Mista-M
He'll always be Captain Marvel to me :)

Anyways I had difficulty with this, I first tried going the magical God of War route and giving him an item from each of the gods but it just looked too busy.

Among Superhero costumes Black Adam is one of my all time favorites. Drawing from that I removed the cape, which I tried and failed to do with Superman. The collar on his jacket is meant to evoke a military or authority figure seeing as he calls himself Captain. The short sleeves were an attempt to keep the youthfulness of Billy Batson in Captain Marvel without resorting to dumbing down the character. The sash was could have stayed but I really wanted to use the belt in the design.

Not so much a redesign as a few tweaks, hopefully its evident that the material isn't skin tight.

this is amazing, I really like the character and I wish they would do more with him, you seem to have a very good grasp of the character

They do seem to be doing more with him but its not what I'd hoped for

I like this!  It's sort of a parallel to Jamie McKelvie's recent redesign of Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel over at the OTHER company -- not that one is derivative of the other, but that you both drew from the same idea of "The Captain" implying more a military uniform than red long johns.

Yeah its funny how people can have similar ideas and totally different execution. Actually would have been funny if I'd kept the sash as well

it's just not the World's Mightest Mortal without that trapeze cape.

But I DO like that jacket. This design invokes in my eye more of a "Professional Adventurer" feel than a super hero.

:D The famous cape, I get you. Actually the adventurer look is something that I was going for as I envision him basing his look off old movies he's watched ( I figure somehow he'd have a taste for golden age pulp heroes) and his ideal image of his father.

I have a feeling that the original design for Captain Marvel would be the most appropriate. I see the Shazam power as being largely influenced by the mind of whomever possess said power, and since Billy Bastion is a grade school kid, I have a feeling that his Captain Marvel form may have been based off of the doodles he made of his own superhero identity that he made while thinking of the exciting world-saving adventures Superman gets to go on, dreaming of all the good dead he could possibly do if he had that kind of power.
