You’re killing me Marvel. You’re actually killing me.
I don’t care about the ironic commentary: Snowflake is more of a name you’ll give to a pet panda bear on Webkins than an actual hero.
Anyway, I gave them a little redesign
I’m not good in names but Sleet or even Permafrost is better in my opinion.
The gauntlets around their arms help them aim their projectiles better. Also, I gave them ice picks, because why not.
I redesigned Marvel’s Snowflake and Safespace, and here are the new designs
So I decided I’d try my hand at redesigning Marvel’s New Warriors characters, I’ve seen some other people doing so. Everyone is coming up with really neat designs. First one I’ve done is Screentime, wish I could come up with another name for him because that one is so dumb. Here’s the original and some info about him.
And here’s my redesign
I kept the logo for his costume, since it’s simple and I kinda like it. I kept the same color scheme too, I made two variations of his costume, because I couldn’t decide which looked better.
For this instead of being hit with Experimental Internet Gas??? he’s a cyborg. I don’t know anything about science or the Marvel universe so I’m gonna make some stuff up, gonna probably be very unrealistic. He died in some kind of accident, and his body was donated to science or he was severally injured and experimental procedures were preformed on him because he was pretty much brain dead. A lot of his brain was damaged in the accident, and he was used in an experiment to replace parts of the human brain with a computer like substitute. The integration was successful, but he doesn’t remember anything about who he was and has a hard time functioning as a normal person.
He’s basically like a human computer, or similar to an AI, he is connected to the internet through the computer part of his brain, allowing him to basically browse through it in his mind. He has ocular implants, allowing him to see what he searches more clearly. He has trouble controlling all of this and has a hard time separating his actual thoughts and flashes of things that come through the internet.
I based some of it on this person’s interpretation. Because his brain is part machine and having the internet constantly running through his mind, he isn’t exactly mentally stable. He sometimes can’t differentiate what’s real and what’s in his head.
The government or whatever kind of thing in Marvel that runs things, or some kind of organization or something idk, uses him to solve cases, monitor things, and gain information on enemy forces. That’s what this experiment was for and why they connected his mind to the internet, they wanted someone who could access things instantly, with just a single thought. I mean I guess smartphones do the same thing, but let’s just pretend this is better and he has access to a lot more stuff.
He’s basically a genius and he does act like he as an ego because of that sometimes. But he’s just really not used to interacting with others all that well. He stays in seclusion when he can, and doesn’t like to leave his room. He doesn’t have much freedom, because a lot of money was spent to create what he is now, and he’s constantly monitored to make sure nothing happens to him. He’s just starts slowly going more and more insane over time. The environment he’s in doesn’t help much. He spends days completely in his head, and forgets to eat and sleep sometimes.
I guess when he is teamed up with the other characters he starts to get better. He gets to interact with with others his age and learns to socialize. He eventually escapes the place he’s kept at and joins the other heroes. At first he mostly acts as the guy behind the computer, giving them info and directions and such.He’s afraid to get out in the world. But he does eventually join them out in the open and helps them fight. The visor and headphones help him tune out the real world and use the internet and such. It’s easier to access information this way, he can always tell wear he’s at because of the internet or whatever.

AGFGHG!!! I really wanted to put these pictures side by side so it wouldn’t take forever to scroll through, but it doesn’t seem to be working.
Here’s a meme
I plan on redesigning the rest of the characters just for fun, right now I’m working on Trailblazer, and have the others sketched out.
Listen, new warriors looks trash but I keep seeing people being like “the world is vampire and so am I is so dumb” and like, my dudes, my Bros, my fellow comic readers, it’s from a song by the smashing pumpkins. The song is Bullet with Butterfly Wings and it’s actually really good. B-negative’s little catch phrase is just an emo kid being edgy, and it’s one of the few good things to come out of this new comic line up.
shoutout to all the people redesigning ‘snowflake’ and 'safespace’ i love you!!!
