MANO - The Fatal Five

Mano © DC Entertainment

This is the first of five head shot Canson pieces I will be doing of the Legion of Super-Heroes villains, The Fatal Five. I am doing these for Travis. This first one is Mano. Mano has to wear a helmet that supplies him with the same toxic atmosphere from his home world. This would be the world he destroyed with the "anti-matter" touch of his right hand. Nice guy.

My take is a mix of old and new versions of Mano. The costume is classic but the way his head is depicted is inspired by George Perez' version. In the classic version, Mano's head was just a silhouette, George made it much creepier. 

Thanks Travis!
