There are a number of things we are working behind the scenes at Major Spoilers, and today we are pleased to announce the official Critical Hit Character Designs, by our friend Thomas Perkins.

You may remember Thomas Perkins from his excellent work on Ben 10, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Green Lantern, and of course, our Hero History of Kablamakus! Thomas approached us quite a while ago about providing art, and over the last couple of years, we’ve honed everything down to where we are happy to show off the first official character designs to you, our faithful Spoilerites and Critites.

All this week we will introduce a character and design to you, and since Critical Hit began with the introduction of Orem, we thought it best to start our character look with you as well.

I don’t think we need to tell you to use the comment section below – because we know you will.  We are extremely pleased with the designs, and hope you are too!

    Fantastic! I especially like how he’s standing on Torq’s head. Wait, you mean that’s *not* Torq?

    But seriously, that’s some awesome artwork to go with an awesome show!

  2. The Great NateO on

    OH MY, OH MY, OH MY. This is Awesome and can not wait for the rest of them and, I hope, some action pictures of all the team(s). This ROCKS!!!

    If you look up the word ‘Awesome’ in Wikipedia, you get a re-direct to this page on the MajorSpoilers website….

  4. That is some nice art! On its own merits, as well as it being Orem. I love the monochrome/green contrast idea. Generally, I tend to just visualise you guys (mostly) sitting round a table when I’m listening, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of how everyone is “meant to” look.

  5. That would make a excellent T-shirt design, especially with glow-in-the-dark ink for all the green parts.

  6. What is that creature Orem is stepping on supposed to be? Is it a TP original, or something from the campaign?

    It is great work, as I would expect from Mr. Perkins.

  7. Excellent!

    Now we need a cosplayer in this costume standing next to the “welcome to Orem, UT” sign…

    Or is that too much real-life in my fantasy-life?

  8. I have been desperately praying someone on deviant art or etsy would create a poster sized version of the end of the skill challenge from episode 125, with Orem popping onto the lodestar, and Randus flying in using an explosive barrel and Torque bearing Ket leaping onto the rock with Guy just barely clinging to Ket. Please Please Please make this happen.

    • If someone is doing that and selling it on Esty, it would be a violation of copyright. Your best bet is to buy Critical Hit merchandise directly from Major Spoilers so as not to break the law, and to ensure funds are going to those who are creating the content you love.

  9. This has me really excited for some Randus imagery… been struggling to keep his modifications straight in my head.

  10. Very cool. Can’t wait to see the rest of the group. But I have to say though he looks slightly more evil then I see in my head and less fancy. Still awesome and if/when a poster of this comes out that I can buy *hint hint* I’m gonna need all of them and a group shot. Probably going to need to start clearing room on my wall for them.

    The real question is… if this were turned into a Cartoon, who would voice each character?

    For me:

    John DiMaggio = Torq
    Dante Basco = Orem
    Nathan Fillion = Randus
    Wally Winger = Ket
    Grey DeLisle = Trelle

    And of course Dee Bradley Baker, Tress MacNeil and Maurice LaMarche would do all the NPC characters.
