Extreme makeovers arenÂt just for superstars anymore. TheyÂre for superheroes, too.
Zen Intergalactic Ninja, the extraterrestrial whoÂs been invading comic shops since 1987, is about to go under the knife for a nip/tuck treatment of galactic proportions.
In ÂZen: Bounty HunterÂ #1--to be released this month by SSS Comics (http://www.ssscomics.com) --the alien hero goes where no E.T. has gone before. For the past 17 years, Zen has only had one facial feature: a pair of large, almond-shaped eyes. ThatÂs the way heÂs been portrayed in the comics, a line of action figures and a pair of well-received videogames.
ÂZen wakes up to find heÂs sprouted a nose and a mouth,Â says writer/creator Steve Stern. ÂItÂs all logically explained, and it gives Zen a whole new look.Â
Stern says there were two reasons for the makeover. ÂThe fans really wanted it--and so did actors who over the years have been interested in portraying Zen on the screen. They felt he needed to look more human.Â
Zen is in development with producer Richard G. Murphy, whose credits include ÂTimecopÂ and ÂUniversal Soldier: The Return.Â ZenÂs new look, he says, is creating a buzz in tinseltown.
ÂWith all the plastic surgery going on here in LA,Â Stern added, Âit was easy to give Zen a makeover.Â
