Agent S live action mock up

I suppose, if I don’t do a mockup, I won’t see what it could possibly look like.

Everyone who grew up on some incarnation of Jonny Quest loves the appeal of being the bad-ass boy of the hour. You don’t want to be Robin because he just can’t outweigh Batman as the sidekick.
