Heads Up 122 - Mantis by SeanRM Heads Up 122 - Mantis by SeanRM
Mantis, a Bug who left New Genesis and offered his loyalty to Darkseid in return for great power!

Probably the most drastically changed of my designs so far, Mantis now looks like a member of the Bug race rather than a New God. I am not 100% pleased with his horns, but I struggled to find a good way to deal with that part of the design.

I should also note, that this is based on the original designs for Mantis, and not his later robot design that was used for the Superpowers series. Though were this an actual cartoon or comic, and not for fun - I could see him being almost killed and Desaad being ordered to build him a new body that would be based on that design. Hmmm... Something for a future set of redesigns perhaps?

Disclaimer - These redesigns are for fun, and not part of any actual project.

Great job on this more bug version of Mantis. And thanks for bringing up The Superpowers Collection. Definitely one of my favorite moments of childhood.

Thanks! If I do a second run of these (I have a few more for this line-up, but I am likely gonna come back and do more in the future) I think it would be fun to tackle the Superpowers Mantis design.

I like the partitioning on his body and the exaggeratedly large hands and feet.  He looks powerful!

According to the comics, Mantis is the second strongest person on Apokolips - after Darkseid himself.
