Ursa Major

I wonder how that above scene ranks on the Hulk’s “weird day” scale? What is it, maybe a six out of ten? Seven…? It’s a bear holding his arms behind his back while a guy in armor gives him the business. FUN FACT: It would only rank a four on my weird scale.

Anyway, the Soviet Super Soldiers. They’re like a Russian Avengers/X-Men hybrid team, but instead of a Norse God of Thunder or adamantium-laced killing machine they have a bear. A mutant bear. I love Marvel.

There’s Vanguard, who can pull a Unus and repel any object with his mutant power. His sister Darkstar can do Green Lantern-like stuff with black “dark force” energy. Crimson Dynamo, who likes vodka more than Iron Man and finally, Ursa Major, who drew the short stick of mutant powers by being able to transform into a bear. While that would kick ass in the real world, his phone probably doesn’t ring whenever Galactus invades the Marvel U. “The Devourer of Worlds is coming! Quick, someone get a bear!”

Impressive sculpt, right…? Thanks, I had next to nothing to do with it. Ursa here is just a D&D Miniatures Werebear. The extent of my painting was doing his nails (FAAABULOUS!). Forget that, though, check this out: live-action Ursa Major vs. the Hulk. Prepare for crazy!

This might actually beat out Conan for least-modded custom I ever tried to take credit for. I wasn’t even looking to make an Ursa Major figure (no one is), but when searching D&D miniatures for a gorilla to make a custom Grodd, I stumbled across the werebear. I ordered one, chopped off his ax (what kind of pussy werewolf bear needs an ax?) and voila, mutant Russian bear superhero. It was like Christmas.

Ingredients: Laziness.
