Browsing io9.com this evening, I found these great videos of comic book legends Stan Lee (Spider-Man), Todd McFarlane (Spawn) and Rob Liefeld (X-Force) creating a totally original comic book character in about twenty minutes. McFarlane and Liefeld are in charge of designing the character, whilst Lee attempts to justify every minute detail and reinforce the back story.
They're pretty much just throwing the character together spontaneously, resulting in something pretty amazing for twenty minutes work. Goes to show that spontaneity can lead to great results!
(I think I'm having a little trouble posting on the group blog, as this post didn't work on there either. Probably something cookies related or whatever. Either way, there's always room for this stuff on my own blog anyways!)
