When Ivan, Joe and I spoke about Prisoner-Of-War with our editor Pat McCallum we went back and forth quite a bit. We wanted this soldier, this man who was held captive for years and the only survivor of his squad, to be and feel like a faceless victim of war. One who was now fighting for his freedom and identity. But his identity is clouded by the mysterious powers he gained after his fellow soldiers were killed. The shackles he wears are golden like Aquaman’s trident, but a source of another power. When we meet Prisoner-Of-War he is a far cry from the man he once was…or will be.
Skitch Commentary: Another really cool character design. I love how much work DC has been putting in to trying to find unique looks for all their characters as a part of Relaunch.
This costume really invokes a particularly disturbing atmosphere, and it works great, especially as such a contrast to Kahina the Seer.
