Daikaiju Fighter Super Spand-X by StretchyGalFan Daikaiju Fighter Super Spand-X by StretchyGalFan
After seeing :iconanimewave: 's current giant monster girl madness, I was inspired to pull this one out of my archives...

Super Spand-X, an elastic giantess charged with protecting Japan from an never-ending army of city destroying monsters!

In reality, SS-X is a movie character played by stunt-woman / actress Ryoko Kyubei, who actually possesses the power to stretch and elongate her body (saves money on CGI!). Her previous visual effects / stunt roles included performing in monster suits, and as yokai.

For SS-X, Ms Kyubei originally wore a stretchable full body costume, but her powers proved too much for it during a crucial one-take miniature effects scene, leaving her wearing only the "battle bikini" parts... Fortunately, her "new look" proved to be extremely popular with the fans, and was carried over into the sequels... :drool:

BTW, "Super Spand-X" is a play on the name of the flying mecha "Super-X" from the Toho movie GODZILLA 1985. ;)

If your answer is yeah, :D
who's the original character inspiring your own superheroine? :nod:

Yes, that is one of my original characters.

Not sure what you are getting at with that second question. If you are asking what inspired me to create her, I'd have to say ULTRAMAN.

:w00t: Then, i nearly pinpointed when i deemed that she's your Oc. :nod:

About my second query... :hmm:
you wrote about a movie (SS-X) and a actress Ryoko Kyubei.

Therefore, i believed that you was inspired by those.

Not correct.

"Ryoko Kyubei" is also my original character. Super Spand-X (SS-X) is a movie character played by Ryoko Kyubei. There are two stories here: One is about the cinematic adventures of a super-elastic giantess Super Spand-X who fights evil giant monsters. The other is about the poor elastic stunt actress who has to bring these adventures to life in front of the camera.

Most artists here like to focus on the adventures of the superheroine, instead of the actress.

:wow: Ooop! i know now what bewildered me here! ^^;
:hmm: It's your last phrase: BTW, "Super Spand-X" is a play on the name of the flying mecha "Super-X" from the Toho movie GODZILLA 1985. :ashamed:

Thanks! Glad you liked her! :D

Heh! In reality, she's only an actress with a stretchy body (excellent martial artist though), but if you want to use her as the giant monster battling elastic heroine Super Spand-X, then by all means have fun! ;)

But at the rate the Techno-Slime Girl is growing, even SS-X would become dinner easily! :fear:

You have any story with her ?

With the Super Spand-X character herself?

Not much, actually... :giggle: I just liked the visual of an elastic Japanese giantess in a bikini beating up giant Japanese monsters with martial arts. :lol:

"Dr. Yoko Ai, Japanese daikaiju (giant monster) researcher, was killed during an attack by the space monster Goh-Girra and then revived by aliens from Galaxy X. Now, when giant monsters and evil super-aliens threaten Japan, Dr. Ai is able to expand (i.e. explode out of her clothes) into the form of a giant elastic amazon code-named Super Spand-X". :lol:

Yeah, she's basically a rubber CUTEY HONEY crossed with ULTRAMAN... (or a giant elastic Chun-Li fighting Godzilla) ;P

If you are planning to do something with her, don't worry too much about her background and just have fun! (No "naughty tentacle" stuff, OK? ;) )

This was actually a quick reference art for some con commissions last year. The RRRRecycle1 archive should have the result of that in the :cylon: files... ;)

Thanks again! :D

I will admit, she's a real "wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen", but that's all part of the fun with her (quite a few "accidents" occur while filming the battle scenes) ;)
