Weisman might be king of this in American cartoons. Xanatos/ Fox and the whole Young Justice season 2 switcheroos were amazing.
It seems silly buttering him up all the time, but the dude is a legend for a reason.
In the grander scheme of media… there’s so many in comics… too many perhaps, but if I think of one that I really feel should be zeroed in on (outside of my usual touchstones – like Ninjara in TMNTA) I’ll comment again.January 10, 2018 at 4:24 pm #59867
Magneto and Emma Frost seem notable.January 10, 2018 at 5:53 pm #59868DougParticipant
Sorsha in Willow.
Mad Dog in Hard Boiled.
Penguin in the Batman TAS episode: Birds of a Feather.
I know there’s more. These are just the first that came to mind.

here is a simple one, Since Captain Scrap is a Captain, does he have a fancy hat
It's about "SHOW TIME" so drop by http://demonlordm.deviantart.com/January 17, 2018 at 1:24 pm #59903
He has a bandanna when I draw him, but I don’t know that there is an official design yet.January 18, 2018 at 11:10 pm #59909
No official design yet. But I think he’s too serious business for a fancy hat. A simple, practical tricorner – if anything. Now… that cousin of his that impersonates him… he’s the kinda asshole who would wear a fancy hat.January 19, 2018 at 7:36 am #59915
@Max and @Cap nice I also wanted to ask you and Tony in early sketches have Scrap with an eyepatch but on different eyes is that something that just not flushed out yet or are you guys doing the whole “pirate night vision” myth were they wore eyepatches to have one eye adjusted to above-deck daylight and the other adjusted to below-deck dim light, which would be cool if Scrap had some freaky mutant Heterochromia were one eye works at night.

I’ve never drawn Scrap with an eyepatch, though once in Inktober he had some reading glasses on. I think the short answer is that there is no offical design for Scrap yet because he isn’t on the critical path to the story bible. #StayOnTarget
Actually, my version of Scrap is a totally different dude than the Pirate-y ones you seem to be referencing. Mine is like a Ninja Turtle with an automotive roll cage that has all kinds of salvage packed into it.January 21, 2018 at 11:44 pm #59924
Ha! Yeah, we’re not nearly clever enough to have done that eyepatch deal. There’s just no locked design yet. I love Max’s design from Inktober. I think they’re gonna evolve into a separate character.January 22, 2018 at 10:46 am #59925
For context, here are the times I’ve noodled around on Scrap:
and this one from before that, that it now occurs to me may not have ever been shown outside of the group:

@cap, I’d like to throw this idea into the creative hopper, and y’all can do with it what you will:
Either this is the Real Cap’n Scrap who has no crew or organization, and that dude with all the Cap’n Hook regalia is like Jodo Kast to his Boba Fett, or we have a legitimate Dread Pirate Roberts situation here, and this is a retired former Scrap.January 22, 2018 at 12:02 pm #59928
As for those images – they ended up in the LD SketchbookJanuary 31, 2018 at 1:17 am #59968
Their are many Pitfalls when dealing with Team dynamic show (like a boring leader, one of characters becoming the soul focus and everyone else becomes side characters , or sidelining one team character for more then 3 episode in a row to name a few) which ones do you guys find the hardest to to avoid or keep catching your self from falling into?

Initially the boring leader was the big one. But as soon as we had the Bruce Willis comparison down Dingo’s bland inclinations melted away. The next most challenging are Narisa and Angela – both characters with a lot of merit but both easy to slip into passive support roles because they’re both so important to the core team. When they’re in the group they start being functions above characters. It’s something we’re very conscious of so hopefully it’ll never be apparent. They thrive in smaller groups.February 12, 2018 at 3:18 pm #60039
There are a few common writing problems I’d hope to avoid:
1) Everybody talks in the same voice, and that voice is the voice of the auther. Not saying we have this problem, mind you, just that it’s a problem I’d hope to avoid
2) I want a team of good guys to get along and be good guys and fight against bad guys; i’m not super stoked on the modern trend of Heroes vs Heroes, or bickering teams of misfits. That was my biggest problem with Extreme Ghostbusters: they never gel into a team that gets along, all they do is bicker about everything and knock each other down. Banter is one thing, but bickering is lame.
