TRDL 2011 Series No. 43 - Cage and Rand: Heroines for Hire [TRDL Redesign]

This was an interesting redesign challenge. There's no shortage of gender-swapped designs thanks to Rule 63. I've grown to quite like this in cosplay at conventions, as well. Here, I’ve re-envisioned the classic Power Man/ Iron Fist designs, with them as an ass-kicking pair of super-powered women, working their way through the US and taking down hate groups. I drew inspiration from Power Man’s early fight-the-power thing, and you’ll see several nods, in both color and design detail, to the original characters, but in a new way. Lucas wears two torn-down Klan flags off her waist as trophies, and Rand has her tattoo as a half-sleeve on the arm that delivers the chi strike.
