What's the weapon of a living weapon? I don't know exactly, but I do know that every great superhero not only has theme music, but their own trademarked weapon of choice; magic lasso, Billy clubs, utility Belt..... the mighty Mjolnir. Now I don't have to tell you who these weapons belong to and the same holds true for the ceremonial battle mask of Benjamin Turner. It's without a doubt the tiger mask.
Having traveled from Atlantis to Apocalypse the tiger mask has served BT well.
But I have a love hate relationship with this particular piece of head gear.
Most artist can't draw it correctly, it either looks stupid and awkward or the mask
makes the man look like an actual tiger. A redesign is needed for sure.
Mia Cabrera over at Deviant has the best version to date.
A stylized tiger with elements of a Japanese Samurai kabuto
and the Wakidate (side crest) could represent
the Clan of Sakanoye NoTamuramaro.
On certain missions and at random times the Bronze Tiger uses weapons
of his Shogun roots. Which leads to a question.
Should the Tiger have another trademark weapon?
