D'NIKAY-- TELLOS bad guy

By Wieringo
115 Favourites
This is another one of the bounty hunters who confronted the TELLOS gang in issue #3. His name is D'NIKAY-- and his name is a play on the actor Danny Kaye. He was in a movie called THE COURT JESTER, and he was dressed all in green and looked quite a bit like Robin Hood... and that's the inspiration for this fellow.

Looks a bit like Doctor Doom if you ask me, but I like it, yeah.

I love the look of this character, great stuff!

Yeah, I had the same feeling, Doom is definitely in there, the belt-buckle and all. As well as Magneto, I can see him in the collar.

Is this a religious character? The weapon looks crossy.

Is he a religious character...? Well.... yes and no. He's not a Christian.... he's more of a monk, really.

The staff resembling a cross is just a coincidence.

Looks like a cross between Robin Hood and Victor von Doom.

If he *looks* like Danny Kaye under that mask it wouls be supremely chilling.

Great work, as usual!

Thanks for that bit of info! I find it fascinating to learn of a character's inspiration.

Bring on the bad guys!
