Aztec demigod and professional Mexican luchadore. How can you go wrong with that? This was another Project CBRunway design, where I got to team up with another competitor (the talented DSquared) to create a duo. He came up with the idea and I fell in love with it immediately, much to his surprise. We made Tez a tag team partner to his brother Quetzalcoatl, whom DSquared designed. I'd love to do more with this character.

This was a fun character design for CBR Runway... first challenge in season five I believe, where we had to create a sidekick to any Avenger. I had an idea for a German character named Wunderkind that I felt would work well for a Wonder Man sidekick. It's a little known fact that the Germans love Wonder Man almost as much as they love David Hasselhoff. Some felt the rounded "w" was kinda upsidedown McDonald-ish, but I went with it because I felt the lowercase styling worked well in conjunction for a sidekick of a major player with an uppercase "W". I was happy with how it turned out in the end, and wound up winning the round with this one.
