A hallmark of being a fanboy is reimagining your favorite heroes. The internet is littered with fan redesigns of superheroes. Some are amazingly creative, some not so much. Today we’re celebrating those brave fans who put their redesigns out there for us to enjoy!
Many fans had hopes that Firestorm would make an appearance in one of DC’s animated series (i.e. Superman, Justice League, etc). Below you’ll find a few animated designs by fans: (L to R): By Warhawk; unknown artist; and by BatFriend514
Below you’ll find a cool Firestorm n’ Deathstorm redesign by NeroAngelus based upon Sean Galloway’s Spectacular Spider-Man animated series style.
Below is the Firestorm from Earth-12 by Phantom Paladin
Below is a Jedi version of Firestorm, also by Jor-El!
Below is Firestorm as a Legionnaire by ddzguy
Below is a Medieval version of Firestorm, which I cannot find a credit for. Sorry.
There are people with no artistic ability who also want to reimagine their favorite characters. Back in 2001 a cool program came along called HeroMachine (version 1.0). This program allowed fans to design superhero costumes, although the options were pretty limited in the early editions of the program. It was super fun and I’d spend hours designing different costumes! Below is a Firestorm redesign by Match-head, Ed “The Unique Geek”!
Lastly, I did a redesign myself back in 2001 using HeroMachine 1.0 which you can find below. Not exactly a design I’m proud of nowadays, but I made it — so I gotta own up to it. I can only guess I was heavily influenced by Superboy’s 1990s costume.
Support Firestorm (and fan creativity)! Fan the flame!
