CAPTAIN AWESOME X-TREME

Towards the end of 2005, network execs were in a panic. The ratings for their hugely popular show “Captain Awesome and the Wonder Friends” had fallen into steady decline. A change was needed.



The reason for the slump, it was decided, was that the show was too childish. The characters no longer appealed to its target market – the notoriously hard to please teenage demographic – and they had had lost a large portion of their original “street cred.”



It was clear what had to be done. The show needed a make over. It had to become at least 30-35% more X-TREME. A number of changed were introduced, the least of which included:



Captain Awesome lost an eye in a battle to the death with his arch nemesis: Commander Nefarious.



Generic Girl was replaced with a stand-in whilst the original actor enjoyed time in rehab.



Flufflekin evolved into an angry drunk,



Monobot discovered that he, in fact, had a jet-pack that no one noticed before.



Long John Black Beard lost his remaining limbs. He also found companionship in the form of a brightly coloured parrot who he lovingly named Admiral Squawks.



Black Dragon got a lot more ninja-y.



The Great Briton was made into much more of a minor character because no one really liked him much. He also got eye lasers or something.

The beauty is that it's a parody of cash-ins that is itself a cash-in.

The irony is delicious!

I like the first one better,too.
This one´s just too manga,if ya know what I mean.And what the hell happened to Flufflekin?He´s too cute to be a grumpy alcoholic...

SeraphNoctum

i love the idea and the concept...but honestly the charcter poses look just a tiny bit off...making the shirt look a bit too amateurish.

otherwise- love the idea, the placement, the story.

good luck

quoperate

But it's still cool.

put the outline graphic on the front and forget the other image. Job done.

I like the idea, I just think it's a bit too much for a t-shirt. 4

also, Captain Awesome reminds me of Cillian Murphy.

I have to agree with other people, its alot to put on a shirt... perhaps a front and back would be better
