Suiting the Sleuth From Outer Space #7
Here's a relatively safe design, essentially the classic costume, but with more flesh covered (and two shades of blue to offer contrast unneeded when the green broke it up.) The large figure is an Adam Hughes swipe, because I love the lengthy billowy boots he drew. There's too much blue, I still don't care for the red "X," and it doesn't bring into focus any aspect unique to the character. If anything, it makes the Alien Atlas more generic.
Here's some variations that incorporate the Manhunter Cult belt, which has a side effect of recalling the best known Martian Manhunter logo.
