Last week we met the contestants and Anthony brown nosed his way to victory in the foundation and elimination challenges while we said goodbye to Gentle Giant Troy. This week the artists are all sitting around when Jenna notices a note in the fruit basket. The note invited the contestants to fucking Comic Con because the Spotlight Challenge is to create an original superhero which will appear in an upcoming comic. For some reason I think Wolvie accidentally packed his brother’s clothes because his pants are so tight that I can see his balls. Men’s pants should never be that tight.
The artists meet with Mac and the two dicks behind the DC reboot, Jim Lee and Dan Didio. They offer some common sense advice and then set the artists lose on some of the DC comic book artists to sketch out designs. Autumn starts crying because apparently her daughter is a fan of comics even though she looks way too young to be reading comics. EricZ creates a character based around his father who must be a mutated Mr. Freeze because it’s a man in a biohazard suit. Autumn wants to make a flashback character to the 70’s, House is doing a cyborg girl while Anthony works on a redeeming character that will be based on lava. I think the best way to win these competitions is to have a lot of knowledge on the subject matter so why the fuck didn’t Wolvie do a Wolverine type character? He could have this shit in the bag since he already looks like a bloated version of an existing comic book character. Alas he falls back on what he does with his brother and creates a character based on Elijah, bringer of the plagues, whose the son of one of the Four Horsemen.
Meagan…she gets this bright idea that she should do a freedom fighter character based on the twin towers that protects New York. I can’t. Her sketch is blocky and her sculpt ends up looking like a self-described robot cat. It probably looks like that because that’s what the fuck you sketched. She can’t figure out how to fix it because starting over with a new design would be the easy thing to do. Eric has a great sense of humor and gives his cop character a donut gut while boasting that the others are doing steroid characters. Katie is having a hard time because she didn’t anticipate doing individual challenges so soon but you’re in a competition to win on your own so what did you expect? I didn’t notice it during Episode 1 but Alex slurs her words with a mix of Valley Girl, I really can’t stand listening to her and muted it when she spoke. The day ends with Meagan, Alana Version 2.0, finally figuring out she was missing a jaw on her sculpt after harassing everyone else…even though it looks the same as it did all day.
