Stargod (Man-Wolf)

John Jameson is an astronaut, a test pilot and for his father J. Jonah Jameson the archetype of a true hero unlike these “masked clowns” like Spider-man. John has also been transformed into a Werewolf-like creature called the Man-Wolf, and was once host to the Carnage Symbiote.

John Jameson is the son of newspaper tyrant J. Jonah Jameson. The first time John Jameson met Spider-Man was during one of his first space travels. Indeed, his space ship deviated from his trajectory and it was Spider-Man who succeeded to bring back the command control. Then John Jameson could engage the parachute. John owed his life to Spider-Man. These events made it so that John and Spider-Man got a special friendship in witch the two tried to help one another whenever the could, much to the dislike of John's father J. Jonah Jameson.

John was selected to go on a secret mission to the moon. While on the moon he collected lunar rocks including a red crystal gemstone. John started to wear this gemstone around his neck as an souvenir. This gemstone would transform John into a wolf-like state during a full moon. The newspapers, including his father's, dubbed him the Man-Wolf. As the Man-Wolf, John had many confrontations with Spider-Man and other heroes including She-Hulk.

He learned that the gem is the creation of Stargod, a god who wanted to transmit his powers to a successor.

John Jameson was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (1963).

Marrow MkII

A mutant able to control her bone growth, providing her with armor, clubs, and knives. As a child, she was taken in by the Morlocks where she would form the terrorist group Gene Nation before joining the X-Men. Her allegiances have shifted frequently since then. She was de-powered after M-Day.

Here's another custom I've done once before, way back in November 2012.

It's quite an intense piece, with a lot of detail to add, creating the bone armour, and pointy bits. I used Milliput to sculpt the bones, hair. and extra bits for the costume.

Base figurine used to create Marrow was Vixen from the DC Comics figurine collection.

Paints used were...

Blue parts of costume - Altdorf Guard Blue, Blue Ink, and Midnight Blue.
Greens - Snot Green, Blue Ink, and Dark Angels Green.
Bones - Zandri Dust, Rhinox Hide, Gorthor Brown, and Vallejo Bonewhite (Game Color)
