“He's the hero Sandvich deserves”

The Big Idea:
This set is essentially doing for the Heavy what Bonk Boy does for the Scout. Giving him a superhero persona based around his iconic consumable. One of the reasons I think Bonk Boy is so clever is that it plays to the advertising style that TF2's aesthetic is based upon. The idea that Bonk Boy could be on the back of a cereal packet is very evocative of the era in which TF2 is set.

The biggest influence on this set was the Adam West Batman TV series, which I loved as a kid. The costumes are completely ridiculous to the modern eye but that is part of their charm. Modern super heroes in the widespread media seem almost apologetic that they wear tights with underwear on the outside; the old stuff revelled in it.

Captain Sanvich's cowl was designed with with the early superhero generating rubric of: Taking a thing (the olive on top of the Sandvich) and anthropomorphising it onto a person to make a superhero. (Sandvich Man!) The cowl shape was inspired by Captain America's mask.

The Captain's Cape is included because you need a cape to be a super hero. The Captain Sandvich logo parodies Superman.

The Futility belt is a homage to the Batman TV series but mashed up with the Captain Sandvich logo.

Maybe re-submit it, but without the S on the cape and belt. Maybe CS instead.
Also change the mask to red and blue.
