The League of Infinity
Continuing with the Supreme universe today I present the League. Sort of like the Supreme version of the Legion of Superheroes, but without as many members and based in many time periods. The leader of the group is the young lady in yellow and green named Zayla Zarn, or Futuregirl, from the 25th century. The big guy is Giganthro from the stone age while the cowboy is young Bill Hickok from the 19th century. The witch is a 17th century enchantress name Witch Wench and the ancient Greek guy is Achilles. They have banded together to fight crime across time. Now I confess there's a ringer in the crowd because I used an unmodified Perseus figure from Clash of the Titans (the original one from the 1980s) for Achilles, but sometimes I do that. In one particularly interesting adventure Bill Hickok decided to help the Confederacy win the Civil War by stealing an atomic bomb and blowing up Washington, DC. This is a rather interesting twist on history because in reality Bill Hickok fought for the union during the Civil War. As for the other figures, Futuregirl is made using parts from the Black Hole Kate figure and the GI Joe Scarlet head, on which I sculpted additional hair. The witch has parts from the GI Joe villainess Zatara and the Street Fighter Sonya Blade with a cloth skirt. Giganthro is a repainted Sasquatch figure from Marvel's Alpha Flight and young Bill Hickok has the body and hat of the Lone Ranger and the head from Bo Duke of the Dukes of Hazard. Parts and pieces - just love them parts and pieces.
