He’s righteous. He’s heroic. He’s The Cape. While we may never get all of our questions about NBC's short-lived live-action comic book series The Cape answered, newly found production and concept art used in the making of the show (see below) shed a bit of light on shows creator Tom Wheeler's vision. The art shows early conception of The Cape himself and characters like Orwell, Max Malini, Chess, Scales or Rollo. Most of these arts didn't make it to the final show starring David Lyons, Summer Glau, James Frain, Vinnie Jones and Keith David.
An image of the character as it appears in the show is displayed next to each early concept art to allow a comparison between them, as well as the original comment. Check out the concept arts in all their comic-booky glory below.
Early conceptions of Orwell.
Orwell was always meant to be a blogger who worked in the shadows. These looks shows Orwell with and without glasses.
Early conception of Peter Fleming/Chess.
Peter Fleming's original name was Peter DeMint. Six Point Harness (LA-based animation studio) took Tom Wheeler's descriptions and came up with this vision of Chess.

Firefly and Arrow Cast Reunion at MegaCon 2015
Orlando, Florida will host a reunion of two of the Firefly cast members and of three of the Arrow cast members. Indeed, Summer Glau will be joining MegaCon 2015, where she'll meet up with her fellow Firefly cast member Adam Baldwin and also with Arrow cast members Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/The Arrow) and Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance) for three days of meeting fans, photo ops and signing autographs.
The convention will be held in about six months and MegaCon has not published their programming schedule yet, which means we don't know if there will be a Firefly or Arrow panel or if there will be group photo ops with Summer and one or several of the other media guests.
And while Browncoats account for most of the people wanting to meet Summer at a convention, it's good to see that some con-goers also recognize her as Isabel Rochev/Ravager from Arrow (see this of Summer with a Green Arrow cosplay), not to mention TSCC fans of course.
MegaCon has an ongoing list of announced guests at its website, which also includes Lou Ferrigno of the 1970's "The Incredible Hulk" series and voice actor Vic Mignogna (Summer was photographed with Vic Mignogna at Armageddon Expo, Auckland).
Of course, we will keep you up-to-date on the latests announcements regarding Summer's participation to the convention.
