Johnny Quick

Johnny Quick

Here is Johnny Quick. Father of Jesse Quick, who gains his super speed by speaking the mathematical formula: 3x2(9yz)4a. This really isn't a formula, is only a single term! e=mc2 is a formula because of the equality. Oh well, its a comic book. Max Mercury tries to convince Johnny the formula is only a crutch. Johnny is tapped into the "speedforce" regardless of the formula. Read the Flash collections Terminal Velocity and Dead Heat for more info (and great reads besides!)

Johnny Quick

Johnny was made out of a Famous Cover type 1 male body. I made the costume, and had fun trying to make the squared-off collar. I think it turned out much better than my earlier attempt with Doc Samson, who has a similar shirt. The shorts and boots came from a Daredevil figure. I forget where the belt came from, but it was some 12" GI type thing, and I trimmed the length of it. His logo, which was drawn different in every comic he appeared in, is made of several small pieces of black PVC tape.

Johnny Quick's head

The yellow hands came from a Vision figure. I actually painted them a little more gold to match the material of the pants and glove cuffs. The head is from a Green Arrow figure that was shrunk with acetone. I had to carve in the neck a little bit to get it to fit on the FC body. I am very please with the results.
