Blue Beetle Animated Villain Sheet +FINAL LINE-UP+ by dou-hong Blue Beetle Animated Villain Sheet +FINAL LINE-UP+ by dou-hong
Update 4-27-16
I have updated my characters designs from four years ago. It's been a long time coming, and I've always wanted to take a second stab at my designs from college. I hope that you like it! ;) I never got the chance to design a heroes sheet, only a villains sheet, but now I'm slowly working on that as well. Can't have villains without some heroes! ;)

  • The Squids are a direct reference to SquidKidsInk (permission granted)

Thanks to :Auracliane:!!!

Thanks to her, I finally figured out how to allow people to join the club below. I apologise, I
know I've said that people can join, but I was just a complete derp when it came to the settings
of the club. XD Membership is finally now open!

:iconfarfie-land:

Also guys, my Blue Beetle Designs were featured on <a wytiwyg="1" href="www.tencentticker.com/projectr… wytiwyg=" 1"="">Project Rooftop! I actually
didn't know this until I saw something on Tumblr. XD Go figure that people don't tell me these things....

Blue Beetle Animated Villain Sheet +FINAL LINE-UP+ by dou-hongBlue Beetle Animated Villain Sheet Two by dou-hongBlue Beetle Animated Villain Sheet One by dou-hongBlue Beetle Animated with Jaime Reyes by dou-hong

Arranged them in rainbow order.

This is the final villain sheet! I added 9 new villains, and instead of having the last 9 on
a separate sheet, I figured it would be better to compile all the designs on one sheet, with
super brief bios underneath them. ^^ It also gives you a better sense of scale.

New characters added from left to right:

Heartthrob
Squids
La Dama
Mummsy
Torque
Facet
Extendo
Tandem
Spider Spaulding

Now onto the bios! From top to bottom, left to right. These will be quick! If there is a
bio in italics, then that character is a an existing villain. If it doesn't, then it's a new
character that I made up.

Bios for the existing characters were found Here!

HEARTTHROB
She's beautiful no doubt, but underneath that brilliant smile lies a cold hearted killer. What
she wants, she goes after, and if she has to tear you apart, then that's what she'll do. Using her
mastery over magnetic fiends, she can command any metal. Another side effect of her extreme magnetic
fields is the possibility of her opponents vision and circulatory systems (hearts and the iron in blood)
severely impaired.
+++++

I always thought it was the scariest thing if you were a superhero and you were fighting against something
that can't be seen, like nano-probes or magnetic fields. Combine those powers with a being who is extremely
prideful, it is a terribly intriguing pairing. I wouldn't necessarily say that she completely parallels Magneto in his
views about non-mutants, but it's close. She's not really sure what to think about Jaime since he does display
super powers, but she knows that it's due to his scarab.

She has no concept of how frail humans actually are. She just doesn't understand that people can't hold their
breaths that long or how quickly a person can expire if they're bleeding, which makes her extremely dangerous
and difficult to control. Her motivations are unclear, as is her race/origin.

She also has to be aware of controlling her magnetic fields around her fellow villains. Some of them are
especially sensitive to magnetic changes.

SQUIDS
Todd Van III, scion of a wealthy family, defied his father, who thought he would never amount
to anything on his own, by secretly forming the Squids, a team of crooks armed with amphibious
uniforms dotted with suction cups that allowed them to scale tall buildings.


SQUIDS! Be aware of these little suckers, since once they land on your head and integrate themselves
into your neural function, you'll be at their mercy!
+++++

So obviously the squids now are literally squids. I had come up with a couple of designs of men in squid
suits, or anthropomorphic squid people, but they kept looking.... thundercat-ish, which wasn't working for
the design. These are similar to Starro and Starro's "offspring." There is one giant squid who command's
all the squids.

LA DAMA
The aunt of Jamie's friend Brenda, Amparo Cardenas is the biggest crime lord in El Paso, Texas,
and the closest thing to an archenemy for Jamie. She is well aware of his dual identity and Jaime
being well aware of Amparo's duel identity.


Nothing changed here!
+++++

She's deadly. And classy. And Jaime might have a mini-crush on her... well, until he finds out that she's like
the ultimate mob boss.

MUMMSY
Ancient nusiance or modern pest? No one's quite sure how old he is, but all everyone knows is that
he smells like dust and antiques. He never takes his wrappings off, but he can use them as super
sharp whip swords that can cut through almost everything with frightening accuracy.
+++++

I wanted a mummy character. It had to be done. XDD Although when I look at him a little more, he does
look a little underdressed.

TORQUE
She has the ability to absorb kinectic energy and release it when she wants to. She is extremely
powerful physically and uses the weights on her lights and arms to keep her power in check. One
punch or kick is enough to launch you hundreds of feet.
+++++
Seriously, those weights on her arms and legs can weigh thousands of pounds or only a few oz. It just
depends on how much energy that she currently has, and it's been speculated that her weights can become
tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds. The disadvantage is that obviously the heavier her weights and
the more energy that she absorbs, she becomes slower. But it takes a lot of weight for her to become
inefficiently slow. She's one tough cookie, but she definitely has a soft side.

I'm imagining her character to be more or less confused about who she is and what she represents. On
one hand, she gets immense satisfaction in demolishing things, but is perfectly capable of feeling guilt
and shame. I think if there was one character besides PITCH BLACK that could have the capability of
being a hero/anti-hero, it would be her.

Her weakness are being suspended. If she's levitated in the air, her powers are essentially useless unless
her weights are extremely heavy. If she hasn't absorbed any energy, her weights are extremely light, and
she's a sitting duck.

FACET
When you've got a body like diamonds, it's pretty hard to beat you down. He has to power to transform his
body into pure diamonds or anything else related to minerals. There are only two things that he fears, the
safety of his friends and him being captured and sold as the biggest diamond in the world.
+++++
His life is always in danger, since he does have a body that can literally be modified into diamond, which
would make him the biggest in the world. Because of this, he had developed an extreme case of claustrophobia
and fear of humans, and the only humans that he trusts are his fellow bad guys.

He has few weaknesses, but maybe the most prevalent might be ultra-sonic sound. The right frequency might
be enough to crack him.

EXTENDO
He uses his extremely agile and strong extending neck to travel from place to place, and can use it
as a giant whip arm. But, despite his large and built stature, his neck arm is actually quite maneuverable,
and can pick up the tiniest piece of fuzz.
+++++

Think of his neck arm like an elephant's nose. It has the ability to lift him up and other large items, or
be extremely cautious and docile.

His weakness would be mechanical since he is a mechanical being.

TANDEM
No, his super power is not being outrageously purple, it's the ability to absorb and utilize other people's powers
and abilities. It is unknown if he is human/ alien, or cybernetic.
+++++

However, a disadvantage of this is that he is only experienced enough to absorb 2-3 three powers of people
at a time, and also in addition to having a limit on the a amount of power he can absorb, he also absorbs
fears and weaknesses as well. So if he absorbs let's say... Kid Flash's speed power, all you might have to do
if he doesn't have anyone else's powers, is lift him up in the air... well, until he starts to wave his arms and
create a tornado.

He has to touch you to absorb your power. The longer he holds on to you, the more of your power gets transferred
to him, but they're not permanent.


SPIDER SPAULDING
Mob boss with a web tattoo on his left cheek, whose plans always involved a different angle, and was caught
thanks to Joan Mason, girl reporter and Blue Beetle's girlfriend.


A scary kid with scary powers. Looking just like he escaped from a circus mental institution, he has the power to
create illusions. He's also sorta like a mini Mr. Miracle, he can escape from the most bizarre of situations. Like if you
drop a piano on him, he'll come out unscathed. He might even do a little dance at the end, just to antagonize you.
+++++

So I totally changed the character on this one. His clown look was inspired by Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects
character Captain Spaulding. Since they had the same word, I decided to incorporate a clown theme with this
character. As for the spider part, I decided to make the tope of his hair look like a spider's web, but it's more
prominent if you look down at him when you're floating above him. No one really knows his background since he doesn't
talk to the other villains much, in fact, he doesn't speak much at all. He's a mystery to everyone, and extremely
unpredictable. He'll only fights during certain times, and will not warn you if he decides to show up or leave.

It seems that the only words he knows is "just a little more," and "perfect."

Take that as you will.

THIS IS THE LAST VILLAIN SHEET. THESE VILLAINS ARE MEANT TO BE FROM A 2-3 SEASON SHOW, THAT'S WHY
THERE ARE SO MANY.

Nice re-redesigns! :XD: Can't wait to see the the heroes as well.

P.S. You know the villains you used from the Wikipedia page?:? Well, I tried looking them up on the DC Wiki Database to compare them to their original designs, and they didn't even have pages. They must be really obscure characters if that's the case!

Have you watched the Young Justice Cartoon? If you have, could you please add some characters from there. Like Tim Drake, Garfield Logan or Bart Allen. If you don't want to, could I use this as a base for a Fanfic?

Have you ever watched young justice the cartoon? If you did, I think It'd be really neat to put Impulse as a side character(With or without powers).

Lots of cool designs and concepts here. I'm definitely rooting for you if you get to pitch this thing.

I really love how you're willing to ignore or mess with old gendered tropes. Like, having the slim sensual Negotiator and the hulking monstrous Black Beetle in a relationship is neat, but making the Negotiator a guy and Black Beetle a girl pushes it into "shut up and take my money" territory, because kids need to see that everybody has different body types and personalities and that's okay even if it doesn't fit what society tells them girls and boys should be like. I really want to see Heartthrob and Torque's partnership and how it might develop over time, and Sky Ruler as a female villain who's threatening without being objectified or sexualized at all, and Moody as whoever Moody turns out to be (today)...

Your BB stuff is as awesome as always but I don't know if I like this more kid friendly take. For example, I think your previous Prism, Scarlet Scarab, Skyruler, Blitz/Slice and Mantis were much better and seem dumbed down now. Conversely, I really like the new versions of the Look, Black Beetle, Pitch Black, and all the new characters. Either way as previously stated, you rock and I still really want to watch this. 😊
