Union by Gaston25 Union by Gaston25
This is a new character that I just created, Union. He is the European Union's answer to Captain America, The Fightin' Canuck, and any other nationalistic superhero/villain. Union is capable of supersonic flight, superhuman strength, and the ability to project energy based blasts from his hands and eyes. Union speaks several languages as do the countries that he has sworn to protect. Little is known about the man Union, and when asked what country he is from or his nationality, he simply states that he is proud to be a European.

He's certainly Celtic, let's put it that way P ...Unless he dyes his hair...

one of the best ever seen on this theme!

just have a look on our flickr groups if you want to check more europop graphics.

Well, and you don't need to be EUropean to send it to our contest on our community (www.europatriotism.eu)...

Welcome

Very cool character idea. I'd kind of like to see a third color somewhere on his outfit. Maybe a dash of green? I don't know, looks great regardless. :)

I think he needs something added to his head. A crest or something in gold/yellow

Think so? Maybe a yellow trim around the mask or another star?

mattcrap Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2007
i guess i was thinking yellow trim- sort of a dude's tiara sorta thing. Like a thin gold plating across the forehead and down the sides a little

I don't know why, but when I read the title I was expecting WildStorm's Union. Maybe because you were doing a the A-Z heroes thing.

Nice though.

You're telling me that Capitaine Baguette needs some upstart newbie to defend his country?




Yeah, I agree.


Cool character mate. I dig the simple costume, it works nicely.

Thanks! I completely forgot about the Capitaine, we may have to do a team up of some type.

It does sound good man, but I am swamped right now and wouldn't be able to get to drawing it for a week or two at the earliest. New job is killing me, but it will be worth it in the end. We should get everyone to do a "coming at the viewer" drawing of their characters and then combine them for a group picture that everyone can post in their galleries! I'm gonna send a note to the guys and see what they think. You in?

Yeah, I didn't mean we had to do it right away man, but a collab would be cool. I've been meaning to ask a few people about them lately actually.

And yeah, a big group pic sounds fun :)

When I saw the title, I though this was going to be an American Civil War superhero... which, now that I think about it, is a really cool idea... but I digress; nice character. Europe has, like three superdudes. They need backup, says I.
