Collapser Keen design. There's a C on his helmet symbolising "Collapser". But I don't know if G is better or not. What do you think?
Collapser Keen has the easiest disguise in the world. All he has to do is face towards the nearest light source instead of away from it like he apparently usually does, and BOOM instant Commander Keen

That won't be really good.
Yeah can you explain this one? Like since Mart is supposed to be good and Collapser Keen is supposed to be evil, why would Martinez have evil eyes?

No, Cobalt, I know it seems like the evil, similarly intelligent rival character type may seem similar to the evil, similarly intelligent counterpart character type, but they're not. Anyone versed in literature or cosmology could tell you that.

And yeah, you COMPLETELY misunderstood EVERYTHING! He's changed the blue pants to black to be more like the NetKeen version of Mortimer, and the green to blue as well because blue is obviously more Mortimerish than green, for reasons which will occur to somebody at some point.

StupidBunny: Martinez has a heroic evil smile(it's like "Yeeah, we did it. >:)), Mortimer has a bad guyish evil smile(it's like "Muhahahaha"!)

Besides, what I concretely mean is Collapser Keen's smile is as evil as Mortimer's as they are bad, but Commander Keen's smile is as heroic as Martinez's.
Yeah, piece of cake!

StupidBunny, you have not paid attention to what Szemi said. Collapser Keen has REVERSE SHADING, meaning that he is dark when facing the light and he becomes light when he is in the dark. Collapser Keen is truly an evil genius from another universe with the power to glow in the dark and become dark in the light.

Also, even with identical clothes, Collapser Keen has a "C" engraved on his helmet. Commander Keen's initials were "CK" which means he has a G on his helmet, but Collapser Keen's initials are "CK." This new set of original, unidentical initials requires the letter on the helmet to be a C.

I understand the difference between rivals and counterparts now, thanks.
Bowser is Mario's rival, but Wario is his counterpart. Knuckles is Sonic's rival, but Metal Sonic is his counterpart. etc.
I'm the cool blue keener.

On he sprite size it's really hard to tell, though. They have no mouths. The only emotion we see is in the eyes, and Mart's eyes look like concentrated evil.

'I'm bad, and that's good.

I will never be good, and that's not bad.

There's no one I'd rather be than me.'

Updating:

After many years, as I see, the rest of the people wants the "Green M on the helmet, green T-shirt, green stripes on his shoes, green nuclear blaster, grey pants", which is (and stayed) 65%.


So from this point on, the eventual design will be green. Just to make it clear. :)
Yeah, piece of cake!
