Redesigned heroes!

Project:  Rooftop is a website that showcases artists’ redesigns of superheroes.  There are a host of wonderful designs.  This image of Jubilee, for instance, by artist David Tran:

Here is Ghost Rider by Javier Saltares (who worked on the second Ghost Rider series in the 90s):

And finally, this image of a redesigned Teen Titans by artist Charles Rouse-Rodriguez:

To be honest, my main reason for including this pic is that I like the costume for Donna (another favorite character of mine).  It’s not perfect-no superheroine is going to fight crime in heels, plus I think the books need some color (more red I think), but it’s pretty good.  It’s also striking.  My eye was drawn straight to Donna’s costume.  After her, I was drawn to Wally’s costume.  It’s a tweaked version of the Silver Age Flash costume, but it’s still good (in fact, given the sleekness, and IMO timelessness of Barry’s costume, I don’t know if I’d like any redesigns that ventured too far from it).  Mal Duncan and Aqualad don’t work for me in this image (the latter doesn’t do anything for me at all). The character in the center is apparently Dick Grayson as the Human Target.  Bumblebee is ‘enh’.  Not a terribly different redesign from her costume on the Teen Titans animated show (it’s not a bad design, it’s just not terribly different).  One thing of note too, the Charles Rouse-Rodriguez made a clear attempt at diversity here.
