CIRCUS: Acrobat, Lady Tiger, Super Villain (50169)
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: Painting"AND HIGH UPON THE WIRE ABOVE YOU, ladiesangennlemen, prepared to make a leap of certain doom to all but the most skilled acrobats and trapeze artists, Ailura the Fearless Cat-Woman! BORN and subsequently ORPHANED on an ill-fated expedition up the turbid Amazon, then RAISED by JAGUARS, YES-ladiesangennlemen-you-heard-me-correctly-there-I-DID-say JAG-U-ARS, she learned to leap from branch to vine before she could WALK! Discovered and rescued by a team of scientists, several of whom PERISHED IN THE ATTEMPT, she has the instincts and body of a FERAL CAT of the DEEPEST JUNGLE! No man or woman born and raised in our civilization would be capable of such DIZZYING and VERTIGINOUS AERIAL DISPLAYS, such PRECIPITOUS PLUNGES!" (In reality, "Ailura" was born in a small town in Nebraska and raised by reasonably competent human parents. A remarkable flair for gymnastics coupled with a total lack of opportunity and scope for those talents meant it was this or the burlesque stage. And in the circus you get to travel the country, get a lot more air-time, and you have the World's Strongest Man to back you up if a drunken patron starts getting too close.) My god, what a dynamic sculpt! Such a forward sprint, such kinetic drive! I think only Zenith (50080, Not!Captain America) comes close to it. I need to get another copy and put tiger stripes on her.
