The Iron Lantern by StarDragon77 The Iron Lantern by StarDragon77
I'm happy to report that I've created a small beginning chapter that is now posted at FanFiction.net

Iron Lantern: The Jade Dawn


This peice is another in the great line of line arts that I have commissioned the artist :iconbokuman: Iron Lantern Commission

This time, in my own tribute to the Iron Man film, I"ve decided to do this - The Iron Lantern. Which was actually created by a fusion of DC and Marvel Comics under the name of "Amalgam Comics". A fusion of The Green Lantern and Iron Man, which does make sense in that both men use the great power of something physical, (Iron Man - The Suit and The Green Lantern - the Ring).

However, in my own creation of the Iron Lantern, I would do things different.

Such as I would make the wearer of this armor the young son of Tony Stark and "Pepper" Potts - Kyle Stark. Unlike his father, a business man and engineer, young Kyle became an artist, much to the dismay of his father. However, like his father, Kyle had inherited his desire to help people. Which is why after graduating college, he joined the Peace Corps and fell into the same fate as his father; capture by radicals.

Unlike his father, young Kyle was saved by an alien presence who bequethed to him the Emerald Ring of the Green Lanterns.

With the Ring, Kyle used his father's armor and empowered the armor with the power of the ring and became "The Iron Lantern"

The new changes that I"ve made to this is the shadow beneath the feet, the addition of the Green Lantern Logo, and if you look closely you'll see a slight green glow coming from the feet. Kind of like the thrust propellors on the Iron Man's boots.

I've always wondered...Tony is probably the most brilliant technologically-focused mind in the Marvel Universe. So if he knew what he was trying to build, and focused all of his attention on it, would he be able to build something like a Lantern Ring?
Bah, I'm rambling. Very nice work, mate!

Thanks much. And you are right in that Tony could probably build something like the Lantern ring if he could find a way to make light solid.

Still, in this case, the Iron Lantern is more of a mixture of Kyle Rayner and Tony Stark.

Well, not by Bokuman.

But there are other AMalgam characters that I designed and had other artists do for me. Have a look in my gallery and you'll find it.

The concept has high levels of badassery. And the design is totally amazing, with all that interesting panelling.

Thank you kindly for you submission to "In The Panels".

Thanks. But the credit on this one goes to :iconbokuman: who drew it. I only supplied the ideas and the colors.

Though I also wrote my own version of the Iron Lantern.

If you haven't thought of a name for a villian yet you could always try "Sin Monger" Sinestro/Iron Monger.

Actually I've already thought of a name for a villain. Gold Miser. He's in this gallery as well.

Awesome job, but if I may offer a teeny bit off criticism. The Iron Man suit is a bit off, and looks more like a random robot suit than an Iron Man suit, but other than that, it's really good!

StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
I'm afraid that part is due to Bokuman who took some artistic liberties with the suit but *shrug* what can you do?

I had of thought of other Amalgam characters that would be involved in the Iron Lantern story.

Such as Miss POwer (An Amalgam of MIss Marvel and POwer Girl) and Arisia Zor-El (An amalgam of Arisia Rhan and Supergirl).

I love amalgam comics! t's like my favorite thing, who couldn't love a mixture of 2 famous comics. And I love Dark Claw! I think he's my favorite.

StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
Heh, of course since he's that fusion of two of the most popular characters out of DC and Marvel: Batman and Wolverine.

Although there are some Amalgams that I would fix up.

Such as my ideas for a fusion of the X-men and the Teen Titans.

Doctor Alfred Xavier (Charles Xavier and Alfred Pennyworth)

Birdseye - Scott Grayson (Cyclops and Robin)

Starbird (Starfire and Jean Gray)

Nightling (Beast Boy and Nightcrawler)

Machina (Cyborg and Forge)

Nevermore (Raven and Rogue)

Amazon (Storm and Wonder Woman)

and so on.

Well more like "What can you do?"

After all the drawing is already set. But I'll keep in mind to tell Bokuman to make it more masculine looking for the next one.

swesome color, looks kinda feminine.(the legs are together which moves the hip plates apart which contrasts against the wider torso...etc)

Yeah, it is rather hourglass in its look I'm afraid but *shrug*
