LIID 98: Star Trek/comic book Evil Universe mashup by johntrumbull LIID 98: Star Trek/comic book Evil Universe mashup by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #98 for 7/12/12: Comic Book characters mashed up with Star Trek! I took the suggestion of the Mirror Universe Kirk & Spock mashed up with the Crime Syndicate (an evil, parallel-universe version of the Justice League).

Lots of fun drawing the villains from "Mirror, Mirror" --my all-time favorite ST episode-- along with JLA artist's Mike Sekowsky's great designs for the Crime Syndicate! I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out. I downloaded a whole mess of screencaps to draw the Mirror Universe uniforms as accurately as possible (I still forgot Capt. Kirk's phaser sidearm, though -- RATS!).

The face of Superwoman is modeled on ST guest star Marianna Hill (aka Dr. Helen Noel from "Dagger of the Mind"): [link]

If they don't decide to kill Kirk first... Spock I see him surviving due to Superwoman Vouching for his logical thinking...

Kirk's crafty enough to outsmart any of the Syndicate, except maybe Owlman with his super-brain.

Maybe Mirror!Spock and Earth 3 Luthor could team up to bring peace to both worlds?

Not only a fun idea, but you draw Mirror Universe Kirk better than almost anyone else!

Oh, thank you very much! Shatner is tough one to draw, particularly in his younger years. :)

Thanks, Nick! They're both fun to draw, but Shatner is a TOUGH likeness to even get in the ballpark for.

Earth 2 from DC is a great depiction of a Mirror Universe... there are some good ideas to be used, like the Black House instead of the White House.

I'm much more a fan of the original story, but I thought the Earth 2 graphic novel was well-done.

Nice work! Mirror, Mirror was one of my all time favorite ST episodes, for it had the best quote: While it is fairly easy for a civilized man to play the part of a barbarian, it would be near on impossible for a barbarian to play the part of a civilized man... (or something to that effect)

Yes, it's my all-time favorite episode of Star Trek. I'm a sucker for a good parallel universe story. About the only thing I dislike about it is that we don't get to see more of the evil Kirk, Bones, Scotty and Uhura try to pass themselves off as the good guys!

It was a great episode. Wasn't it also the one where Kirk kissed Uhura? That made waves for sure!
BTW, I write, and I'm always looking for new readers. One reviewer said my book was like a cross between Star Trek and Highlander.
Let me know...

:iconjohntrumbull:
johntrumbull Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Nope. That was "Plato's Stepchildren" in the third season. It's really only notable for the interracial kiss. Mirror-Sulu was the one lusting after Uhura in "Mirror Mirror."

That's right! Damn, it's been soo long since I've seen the original series. Time to hit up Hulu I guess...
Harry Mudd was always my favorite bit character though, and best scene was when Scotty decked the Klingon for calling the Enterprise a garbage scow... :)

Do you ever worry that you may be the evil reflection of a more benevolent version of yourself?

Just me?

Really loved this one John, you really got the feel of both alternatve down perfectly.

Well, I worry about it NOW. Thanks for giving me a brand new fear, Sean! :P

...So if I'm the evil version of myself when I have a goatee, am I EXTRA evil now that I have a full beard?
Reply
:iconseanmcfarland:
SeanMcFarland Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oddly enough the goatee is the ultimate configuration of malevolent facial hair, with the possible exception of the Hitler 'stache.

Once you go full beard you swing back into kindly benevolance alongside such well known do-gooders as Santa, Grizzly Adams, Jesus and ZZ Top.

I may need to make some sort of chart.

johntrumbull Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
^^ I like this idea!

I've always thought Hitler was impressive in that he was able to kill off an entire style of facial hair. That is a special level of evil there! :)
