Young Shaney : NightStar

This is NightStar.

When I was in grade 5, I was heavily influenced by the X-Men cartoon & DC's Milestone line of comics. I created my own WildCAT, X-Men, & Blood Syndicate type of superhero team. I don't think they had a name, or at least I can't remember what it was (if I do, I'll let y'all know).

In retrospect, my team wasn't as diverse as I thought it was. It consisted of 3 white guys, 1 black guy, & sometimes a girl character that looked a lot like a guy. I didn't enjoy drawing women so I put her in there because I thought I had to (ya can't have a team of all muscley guys, everyone would think I was gay).

I have recently found a bunch of old drawings from that era and will be posting them under the tag 'Young Shaney' .

So far, here is NightStar. He was the big, black, super strong, silent super hero. I don't think he had any powers except that he was really strong. I don't even know if NightStar the name was already taken (not that it was a great character).
I did a recent drawing of NightStar. His costume is pretty weak.
