You can also do this with raising the Gamma, often a range around 2.2 works really well. But, play with it to get what you like.

Watch out -- this is how the hulk was made ;)

At 2.2, the most you'll get is Doc Sampson. ;) For the Hulk, you've got to go to at least, oh, like 11. ;)

Again, these are very nice. The Great Question looks particularly good. The story background of the Sea Horror has some potential for an underwater design.

The icon of Pantherman, I think, is a little dark. I also wondered why his face looks a little tiger-like, but as I just saw, it looks indeed orange and undotted in the comic. I miss the point(s) of that. :D

Pantherman is meant to be wearing an expensive suit. I chose a very dark shade of purple instead of black. I agree that it is very dark. The reason he has the head of a tiger instead of a (cougar/mountain lion/puma/panther) is that Titan Icon has the tiger head as an option, but does not have a Panther head.

I see... it is in any case great how much variety you get out of it!

I dug around a bit and found that there is indeed a Panther head. I could make it have white spots or a white mouth and throat, but I went with a solid orange pattern.

The original is now called "Tigerman" and he wears a black tuxedo. The new Pantherman wears a blue suit.

Good looking icons. I think the recolor is very good.

Another batch of nice icons, Nol. :)

I like that you are doing such a great job of pulling out little known super villains. You can never have too many options for your hero to face. "D
