The Janissary by oxboxer The Janissary by oxboxer
Yeah so apparently there's this obscure Turkish super named The Janissary and she's magical. (Where do I find this stuff?) She was in like one issue of JLA or something.

Her official costume is this, which is boring, so I redrew it.

Pretty much! I have to do homework now. :[

your redesign of her makes so much more sense and is so much more fun looking too
they tend to make anything remotely middle eastern so simillar, it really leaves no space for cultural identification sometimes geez : (

I know, that ticks me off so bad. And it's so much the fault of laziness -- It took me all of 20 mins to research and settle on a redesign for Jan right here. But apparently that was too much effort for the official artist...? You'd think variety was a four letter word or something.

I know you are going to hate me for saying this but i think that all the costume designs for DC are boring. Im a marvel boy DC is just too OVERPOWERED for me..(SuperMan) you should redesign black cannary because she's the most boring of them all.

No you're right, they are boring, why do you think I keep redesigning the DC ones? Marvel doth not require meddling. ;P

And oooh, Black Canary would be interesting to try! It'd be tough though, her iconic look is soooo basic. (Somebody already took a stab at it, actually, whaddaya think? [link] )

Ha i love that redesign! I think you could do a real good job with her. but be careful. she's one of the few DC heroes that i like. Have any of your redsigns been reviewed on project rooftop?
and why haven't you told me about this project rooftop before!

C'mon I've been pimping PR all over the place! Hahaha whatever. You can view two designs I submitted at [link] and [link] . (It says Jemma under mine but you can pretty much guess which ones are mine anyway.)

i'd heard of the Janissary before. I think that the hero she replaced was one of the Martian Manhunter's many other superhero guises that he used in defending the parts of the world the American superheroes couldn't be bothered with (considering all that he was described as doing behind the scenes, J'onn really kind of gets screwed by the writers whenever he actually has a role in a story), or something like that.

I like your version a lot more, it has a unique style that doesn't just seem like either a generic superhero outfit or a national costume with superheroic elements. Why does every foreign superhero seem to be a Captain America-type embodiment of national culture? It's one thing when it comes out of the country itself, because then at least it can be based on the things people there are actually proud of... but a lot of DC and Marvel's old global heroes were just kind of nonsensical.
