With each character I create for the World Wildlife Federation of Justice, I like to create a logo to go with him/her. Here’s the first draft for Awesome Possum. I wanted to make it a bit reminiscent of Superman* and it kind of has that 1980’s Kenner Super Powers look, which is a happy accident.
Back to the original idea. Switcheroo is one of those classic Batman or Flash rogues gallery villains. He’s always got a trick up his sleeve. He’s replaced the priceless diamond with a replica. You’re about to clock him in the chops – you just walloped your sidekick! You think you’ve tied his hands up – they’re fake arms! Oh the old switcheroo! Comments on the design are welcome.
I had originally thought of Switcheroo as a trickster type villain, like the Riddler. All his schemes involving twist endings. The ol’ switcheroo, you know?
But I’m thinking I’m favoring this character who teleports. He can teleport to where you are and teleport you to where he is. So his tactic would be to jump into a pit of acid and switch places with the hero at the last second. That sort of thing.
Not sure why exactly I gave him a Jugheadesque crown and a sweater. But you’ll notice that the S on his chest is also a symbol of two arrows trading places with one another. That’s my favourite part.
Clock-A-Doodle-Doo is a villain and enemy of the World Wildlife Federation of Justice. He’s a member of the Flock of Evil. But he’s seldom content to play second fiddle and as a self-appointed ‘Master of Time” has taken on the WWFJ solo on numerous occasions.
I wanted him to look like a mastermind, but with his natural big comb and tail, I felt a cowl and cape was overkill. So I kind of went for a regal toga look. However, I don’t think he has enough “clock” motif going on, so I’m going to rework him. But for now…enjoy these drawings. Any suggestions are welcome.
