So I logged on to FigureRealm and I saw a custom by a cat calling himself ASCH….
and foremost, I have to say I was blown away by the double whammie of
his skill and the use two of my favorite things MARVEL…..
Captain America and Eli Bradely…….
I really liked the concept of what he did with ELi (in his words~)” Cap is dead. Bucky is a joke. Osborn is the Man.
Dark Reign prevail. In this reality Eli grows up harsh, keeping all his boy`s dreams deep inside. The time of gun and
blood has come now..”
I thought too, let’s take it a bit further…Being a Super Solider, Eli
Would age slower than most heroes, so I imagine him still around in the
time of the Rise of the Villains”, the Old Man Logan storyline.
envisioned his costume to be functional and a bit rough (the days of
flashy tights are over) with all a man needs to survive… his gun, his
knife, and his shield……times have changed and Eli has too. I opted
for the bare arms to give him that “Mad Max” look..
