TRDL 2013 Series, No. 40 – Firestar [Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Firestar, originally from the Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon in the 80s, and then later folded into the mainstream Marvel Universe. I thought she was quite hot, uh, pun intended, when I was a kid, but heyL she was a girl in a bodysuit and I was barely a teen. That said, I remember even then being weirded out that they made her suit like 99% lemon yellow, and her hair dull. I really didn’t like the ‘upgrades’ she had when George Perez drew her into the Avengers relaunch from several years back, so for my version I stayed pretty close to the cartoon costume, but gave the colors more balance, and gave her a completely different haircut.
