Crystal Kid - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Crystal Kid © DC Comics

We are about to embark on a whole Legion Academy of, well, Legion Academy characters for Michael. First up is Crystal Kid. He can shoot crystal projectiles, encase people in crystal and even turn things into crystal. Hence the name. Thanks Michael!

For those that are not Legion nuts like some of us, the Legion Academy was set up by the Legion of Super-Heroes as a place to teach kids how to control their powers and use them for good. And of course the dream of almost every kid there is to get good enough to join the Legion. There have been a few graduates over the years who made the jump to the Legion. The first were Timber Wolf (called Lone Wolf back then) and Chemical King. This happened way back in the Adventure Comics run in the 1960s. 

This is ink on 11" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Board.
