TNTM: Image to relaunch Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood

One of the original founders of Image Comics is coming back with a relaunch of one of his early titles.  Rob Liefeld will be bringing Youngblood back to the Image line up.

Youngblood was a high profile superteam sanctioned by the United States governement consisting of Shaft, Badrock, Vogue, and Chapel.  The team for this new relaunch will be slightly different with the addition of  latter day team members Doc Rocket and Suprema.

There is also a new character named Sentinel.

Original Team

Jeff Terrel (Shaft) is an undercover FBI agent.  He kills a sniper at a shopping mall with a thrown pen.  He was also an accomplished archer when he joined Youngblood.  He is equipped with an archers bow that uses magnets to propel arrows rather than a bow string. 

Thomas John McCall (Badrock) was an average underachieving 16-year-old.  He transformed into a large organic rock after swallowing a vial of top secret genetic material in his father’s lab.  Thomas took on the identity of Badrock when he was recruited to join Youngblood.  Badrock is proficient with a number of weapons including the guns and knives in the Youngblood arsenal.  Many times he resorts to brute strength by using his fists to pummel opponents into submission.  His reflexes exceed normal human levels even with his enormous size and weight.  Badrock has been a part of every incarnation of the Youngblood team to date (1992, 1995, and 2008 series).

Nikola Voganova (Vogue) was only 13 when she witnessed her father being killed by a member of the KGB.  She was forced to leave her pampered life in Russia as a result.  She was already a world-class gymnast.  She became a member of Youngblood shortly before her twentieth birthday.  She started an international cosmetics corporation, Vogue Cosmetics, using her Youngblood fame to spearhead the launch. She eventually returned to Russia where she was able to get her revenge on the KGB agent that killed her father.  While in Russia it was discovered she possessed a latent Nu-Gene granting her superhuman strength, endurance, and physical durability.

Bruce Stinson (Chapel) is a former soldier.  After his military career he worked in Operation Knightstrike.  Chapel was born in a prison in Joliet, Illinois. He is a known smoker and womanizer.  He is also proficient in unconventional warfare such as torture. Throughout his career he was exposed to chemicals which gave him various superhuman abilities. He was also unknowingly injected with a type of HIV which could be activated by his superiors by a special serum. Chapel was ordered to murder his friend, Al Simmons (Yup, the guy that becomes Spawn). Chapel kills Al Simmons and leaves to later join Youngblood.

New Members

Rachel Richards (Doc Rocket) is the granddaughter of the original Doc Rocket, Rex Richards.  She has the same power of super speed. It is unknown if she inherited the power or used the same potion as her grandfather.

Sally Crane (Suprema) is the sister of Supreme.  One of her brother’s villains crashed her birthday party.  This triggered her to manifest her super powers.  It also turned her hair white.

Marcus Langston (Sentinel) developed the Sentinel armor.  He has no superpowers.  He uses his intellect and armor suit as his power.  It was revealed that Marcus owned a magic book that could alter reality and change people’s fates. He had been headed for an early death, but rewrote the book to make himself the hero of an increasingly violent world.

Official Synopsis for “Youngblood” #1

An uber popular self-protection app called HELP! is changing how we stay safe — “HELP! lets you decide who saves you.” But when a high-rated young hero on the app goes missing, his best friend’s search for answers gains the attention of some unexpected allies, and together, they’ll do whatever it takes to find him… even if it means resurrecting the world’s most hated super-team, Youngblood.

Official Press Release

 Image Comics is pleased to announce the return of Rob Liefeld’s YOUNGBLOOD—the blockbuster hit series that launched the Image Revolution and turned the comics industry on its head—with story by Chad Bowers (X-Men ‘92, Deadpool: Bad Blood) and art from Jim Towe.

TNTM: McFarlane finished new Spawn movie script

Back in the 80’s there was really only 2 major comic book publishers, Marvel and DC. Some of the guys at Marvel were tired of seeing all the money they were making for the big 2 while they were being paid very little to reward their work.

They banded together and decided to start their own artist owned comics publisher (at Marvel and DC if you created a character for their comics they retained all legal ownership of that character). This is how Image Comics came into existence.

Todd McFarlane is one of those early Image Comics guys. The comic book he developed for Image Comics is Spawn. The first issue of Spawn was very popular with sales of 1.7 million copies. During Spawn’s second year of publication, Wizard noted that “The top dog at Image is undoubtedly Todd McFarlane’s Spawn. It became the best-selling comic on a consistent basis without the added marketing push of fancy covers, polybagged issues, or card inserts.

Origin of Spawn

Lt. Colonel Albert Francis “Al” Simmons,USMC (Ret.) was a highly trained Force Recon Marine. He was at his most successful point when he saved the President from an attempted assassination. Al was promoted to a high level and recruited to a highly classified unit within the CIA devoted to black ops. Once there, he began to question the morality of what his agency was doing.

Al’s friend and partner, Bruce Stinson (codenamed Chapel), was hired to kill him. Simmons was killed and his soul was sent to Hell because he had knowingly killed innocents while working for the CIA.

Simmons made a deal with an evil being known as Malebolgia. In exchange for his sou, he would get to see his wife once again. When Simmons returned to the human world five years had passed. He had been transformed into a demonic creature with little memory of his former life. He eventually regained his memories and sought out his wife. She had moved on and married his best friend. They now had a daughter named Cyan.

Al, now going by the name Spawn, decides his purpose is to fight evil. Malebolgia was agreeable to Spawn’s new mission as every evil person killed was another body in his army for his future war against Heaven.

The Spawn movie

The popularity of Spawn peaked with the 1997 Spawn feature film. The film was only a mild commercial success and failed to start a film franchise based on the character. The film had lots of CGI scenes. The budget was continually raised to cover the the ballooning cost of making the computer generated shots. This coupled with studio forcing the film to be cut from a Rated R movie down to a PG-13 rating undoubtedly helped to damage the appeal.

The new Spawn movie has already been written by Todd McFarlane. He doesn’t want to retell the origin of Spawn. This time he wants to focus on the real world implications of the character. The new Spawn movie will rely more on practical effects rather than computer generated eye candy. McFarlane has promised this Spawn movie will be a R rated horror movie. With Todd McFarlane writing the script and the studio green-lighting an R rated horror movie, we should finally get the Spawn movie befitting the character.
