ANIME INJUSTICE GANG ATTACKS by ninjatron ANIME INJUSTICE GANG ATTACKS by ninjatron
Check out the rest of the Anime Justice League artwork! [link]



Please full view and read this!
****
The people demanded it, and so with much thought and deliberation through taking suggestions from fans, I have finally delivered the ultimate team of villains who have united to oppose the Justice League of Anime. [link] This image is meant to act as a counter-point to my Anime Justice League Returns artwork [link] and is in some ways a mirror of that composition. Of course, this group is based on the concept seen in the Justice League tv series episode "Injustice for All" [link]

Please understand that everyone got a chance to suggest members of this gang, and I did use some suggestions. Ultimately it was up to me to pick which characters to use, and I have my reasons for making those choices. I don't mean to be rude, but I am not at all interested in what character other people think should have been used instead. Characters from historical or alternate universes were not eligible due to logistics. Sorry, Naraku and Orochimaru. So feel free to comment on this artwork but don't bother making any more suggestions. There is no point.

So, with that in mind let's introduce our villainous cast of characters. Don't worry if you don't recognize one, I've included links to more information, and you will hopefully see why I gave each character a spot on the Gang. We'll work our way upwards, starting front and center with what might be the most controversial of all the characters I selected.

ROCK HOLMES : [link] From the world of Osamu Tezuka comes this sociopath of a villain, who would no doubt be the mastermind behind forming a gang to take on the Justice League. Rock does not come from one story in particular, but is rather a reoccurring figure in many of Tezuka's works. Throughout the character's history, Rock was not always portrayed as a villain, but when he was, he was truly evil. If you don't understand why, just read this: [link] I see Rock as the perfect counterpoint to Lupin III. They visually match up well against each other and I am very intrigued by the prospect of a Heroic Thief vs Evil Detective match-up. I used Rock's design from the 2003 Astro Boy anime here, simply to create some color variety.

VICIOUS: [link] This Cowboy Bebop villain was suggested a few times and when it was brought up that he was a great swordsman, I thought he'd be perfect as a rival for Captain Harlock. With his hair, scowly face, and uniform, he really does look like an evil counterpoint to Harlock, so much so that I wonder if that was the intention all along.

DORONJO: [link] It was a regret of mine that I was not able to work any heroes from Tatsunoko Productions into the Anime Justice League, so I endeavored to fix that with the Injustice Gang. Who better than Doronjo, the villainess from Yatterman? To me, she is the perfect opponent for Cutie Honey. Doronjo is to sexy evil what Honey is to sexy justice! Don't you want to see them fight? Someone did suggest this character, but after I had already decided to use her.

HAKAIDER: [link] The Mechanical Violator from the Kikaider franchise appears here, based on his animated form. I brought him on board to oppose Astro Boy and Cyborg 009, and I have an interesting story in mind about how that would happen. I always figured I'd use Hakaider if I ever did an Injustice Gang. A brain behind a glass dome is just too cool of a visual to pass up.

TOGURO: [link] The younger of the Toguro brothers from Yu Yu Hakusho. This character came up often as a suggestion, and since I didn't really know who else to use, I just relented and gave the fans what they wanted. He's a demon and a fighter, so he should provide a good fight for the super-powered League members like Goku.

CELL: [link] Well, this should be self explanatory. Of course there is a Dragon Ball villain, and I picked Cell instead of Freeza because Cell just appealed to me more. The way I figure it, Cell and Hakaider were resurrected as experiments by the Black Ghost Organization. Rock knew about this, had the Gang break into an abandoned secret facility, and set them free to unite against the League. But are Cell and Hakaider really interested in fighting for Rock's goals?

RUBY MOON: [link] I thought a CLAMP villain would make a great opponent for Sailor Moon, and Ruby Moon from Card Captor Sakura fits the bill. She really looks like an evil counterpart to Sailor Moon and fits in well with the rest of the gang. Even the name Ruby Moon makes me wonder if she was in fact meant to be a villainous answer to Sailor Moon. Perhaps this is the destined battle!

Will the Injustice Gang succeed in their quest to defeat the Justice League and demoralize the world of Anime? Probably not, but it sure has been fun to think about! Hope you enjoyed it too!

I would love to see a "Day in the Life of Anime Injustice Gang". It'd be interesting to see how characters such as Cell and Vicious interact.

And Hakaider's appearance makes him...the Braniac of the group?

I'm guessing there's a club house with a bowl of Chex Mix involved.

Hakaider is just Hakaider. With him, he doesn't really fit the role of any one DC comics counterpart. He's there to be scary.

Well, yes and no. Some of them match up fairly well to a member of the Injustice Gang seen in the Justice League cartoon, but I didn't stress out about that too much.
But basically I needed a Lex Luthor and Rock Holmes fit the bill for my purposes.
Other than that, let's see here:
Doronjo - Cheetah
Ruby Moon - Star Saphire
Vicious- The Shade
Cell - Ultra Humanite
Toguro - Solomon Gundy
Hakaider - Copperhead, I guess?

They're not really one to one matches, much like the Anime Justice League, but the elements are there.

Rock Holmes i'd definitely accept. Sister Jill from Cutie Honey would also make a great choice, and then we have the crazy one, Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Perhaps but a group battle photo of that battle against Akira would look awesome. 

Say Goku and Astro Boy taking pot shots at it, Cyborg 009 and Sailor Moon grabbed by it, Lupin III Shooting at it or running from it from the ground, and Harlock and Cutie Honey swiping and slicing at it with their swords!

Wouldn't that be awesome?     :D (Big Grin)

Also, as much as it's an obvious matchup, I'd be much more interested in seeing Goku fight Toguro than Cell. Talk about collateral damage.

Never seen Soul Eater but the TV anime seems to have started airing in Japan only a few days before I submitted the original Anime Justice League artwork so it was pretty far off my radar as far as picking classic characters goes.

Kikaider wasn't actually an anime. It was live action like Kemen Rider and Super Sentai.

It was a manga by Shotaro Ishinomori before it was anything.
Then it was a tokusatsu.
Then, many years later, it was an anime.

Awesome choices. But did you know that Maurice LeBlanc who wrote Lupin, put a parody of Sherlock Holmes as Herlock Sholmes in his books that Lupin outwitted. And Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in Moriarity about the time after LeBlanc put in Herlock Sholmes in his Lupin Books, and had Holmes first thwart Moriarity in stealing the Mona Lisa in France? Maybe meant to fight each other is especially so in Rock Holmes/Lupin III's case.

The reason is that Aizen does not appear as members villains got to be good opponents for members of the league and I do not think Aizen was good opponent for any member of that team

ninjatron Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2012   Digital Artist
Yeah, pretty much. Most of the other villains just had to be cool and work as a good dream match/counterpoint to the members of the Justice League, but one of them had to be able to sit in for Lex Luthor somehow, just in terms of brains, ego, and personality. When I figured it should be Rock, everything else just fell into place.

I've read one of the stories Rock was in, he fits this role perfectly. Rock would be very effective as the brains of such a team, possibly with Vicious and Tugoro as his lieutenants.
