Thunder Agents at DC Week: Noman

Noman was ever quite like, um, well Noman! Elderly scientist living on in a series of androids of his own creation. And with a cool invisibility cloak, yet!



All this while retaining that spark of humanity deficient in fellow man-made-men like the Vision, Red Tornado and Star Trek's Data. How would he be reinvented?


A cape that's worn as a raincoat? Well, that could work, perhaps? Looks a bit more like another 60's icon Uncle Fester of the Adams Family. But we'll give that a pass if his origin and motivations, as well as his humanity, is respected rather than disgarded. Time will tell...
