Dashing Heroes by NaterRang Dashing Heroes by NaterRang
And here is the winner of the MLP interim pic poll!

Rainbow Dash dressed up as Ms Marvel (Ms. Mare-vel?) and Fluttershy as the Invisible Mare for good measure!

Originally I was going to dress Dash up as a different hero seeing as how :iconcsimadmax: did Dash as Ms Marvel first, but dang it -It just fits so well!

I'm actually surprised Dash won by such a huge margin. I was getting worried that her popularity was really starting to slack off, but I guess "Hurricane Fluttershy" helped repair her reputation!

Now, back to that mega Applejack/Applebloom comic...

The degree to which your style has improved since I first started watching you is incredible, NaterRang! You were definitely no slouch back then, but this piece is simply gorgeous! Not only is the artwork a feast for the eyes (even as I write this, I keep scrolling back up to look at Dash again!), the expressions and body language are flawlessly conveyed, and furthermore are sublimely suited to the characters (I just can't get enough of that smirk!). :D

Dash as Ms. Marvel is pure perfection. As a long time Marvel fan, my eyes lit up the moment I saw this picture. Mad Max may have cast her the same way already, but if it ain't broke...well, you know. ;)

In the case of Rainbow, her personality fits the hero she's emulating. For Fluttershy, however, her personality fits the powers of the hero she's standing in for. Sue Richards is a far cry from being shy, but turning invisible and protecting herself (and her friends!) with force fields nonetheless suits Fluttershy's timid (yet kind) personality to a T. :nod:

The final element, the writing, is also well executed. Mare Marvel wouldn't be afraid of anything, least of all something as silly as bullets, and the poor Invisible Mare would rather be anywhere but the line of fire, even though her powers would keep her quite safe. I enjoyed a good laugh as I read their lines. ;p

Overall, a smashing picture! I'm glad you're doing these small side pieces while working on your Apple Opus, both because I don't want to see you burn yourself out, and also because it lets be drool over more of your art! :)

I have to say, i am not a brony or a "Big Fan" of MLP, but is a funny meme, and the draw? I think kick ass like the old cartoon of Spiderman who is a meme too. Man i never belive Rainbow Dash can be a super hero, BUT FLUTTERSHY LIKE HER ASSISTENT? WHO SHE CONVENCED TO DO IT? I WILL NEVER KNOW. The point is, this is so funny, you thinking you are a super hero, and your scariest friend like a assistent, priceless, except in the hospital, HAA. Man i am funny and you are good drawing.

Dash fits as Ms. Marvel? How? Did Dash get raped in one episode?

This contains some vague similarities to a scene I plan to write. Hmm...
