Doctor Octopus Redesign

This was my entry for Superhero of the Month's recent Doctor Octopus redesign contest. 

It's actually more of a re-imagining than a redesign. I wanted to give Doctor Octopus a more inhuman look, so I imagined that he received major injuries in the explosion that created him; in particular losing his legs, scorching his lungs and receiving serious burns to his face and arms.This version of Doctor Octopus replaces his legs with the mechanical tentacles and utilizes breathing apparatus, making his hi-tech costume a kind of life support system.

Fantastic Four Re-imagined

Here is my re-imagining of the Fantastic Four of the year 2099.

" In the near future the cosmic radiation that gave the Fantastic Four their powers begins breaking down the cells in their bodies. To save their lives Reed Richards devises a way to transplant Johnny, Sue, Ben and his own brain into robotic bodies. The robotic bodies are designed to mimic each of the Fantastic Four's unique abilities. "

From left to right: J-bot (Johnny Storm), R-bot (Reed Richards), S-bot (Sue Richards), B-bot (Ben Grimm)

J-bot  (Johnny Storm) 
Rocket boosters give him flight capability. Flame throwers generate streams/balls of fire.

R-bot (Reed Richards) 
Extendable mechanical limbs.

 S-bot (Sue Richards)
Cloaking technology, giving the appearance of invisibility.  

B-bot (Ben Grimm) 
Advanced armoured outer shell, making him relatively invulnerable. Advanced cybernetics/hydraulics give him colossal strength.

Avengers Redesign

This is my winning entry for the recent Avengers Redesign Contest at Superhero Of The Month.
The challenge was to redesign a team of five Avengers. You could choose any character you like as long as they had been a member of the Avengers during their career as a superhero.

I was having trouble choosing which characters to include in my Avengers team. I then came up with the idea to create a Black-Ops team of Avengers (similar to X-Force or Justice League Elite) which made it easier to select characters based on the suitability of their skills and powers for a team of this kind.
