Never underestimate the power and creativity of the superfan. Take artist Mark Menendez, who certainly qualifies as a Captain Action fan supreme.
This holiday season, Mark has been posting online a run of imaginary Captain Action uniform sets that never were — but can live in your imagination thanks to his digital wizardry. His passion reminds me of the inventiveness of Brian Dailey, who a couple years ago designed a series of groovy action figures based on the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon. (Click here to check that out. It’s righteous.)
Anyway, I’ve picked my favorites of the sets Mark has posted, so dig 13 GREAT CAPTAIN ACTION OUTFITS THAT NEVER WERE:
