Supercindy by cmeza- Pretty nice costuming. The colors and lighting even look good.
Another Brought Back.... by RoadWolf- Nice, but his outline looks too bright.
Dazzler (altranate) by sensor girl- I think the simpler one was better, but this one's good as well.
Genisis: Clark Kent by Juvenilemike- Hmmm. He might work.
Wherefore Art Thou Romeo? by Undertow- Interesting. Cool idea.
Miss Frost by digitized- Actually, I preffered this costume to any she's worn. The costuming is good. Nice details.
Many Faces Of Jake by Mshadow1023- Fun piece.
Da' Gl Supporting Cast 2 by Junkyard- Not my best piece. The picture quality is all over the place, and some of them look flat. But I still think it's a fun piece.
The Fantastic Four by Vagabond1972- Nice costume re- designs.
Robin Beyond by sickboy_ukuk- Nice.
Dark Elf by mr e- Cool sketch. What's happening in the pic, by the way?
Copycat by Wind Dancer- I think the colors here are a little too bright and abrupt, but it's nice to see new charicters on the gallery.
Doc Ock by phonock- Hmm. Art notes WOULD be helpful here. Is that Elton John's head on the movie Ock's body?
Hellboy by Lowden- Fun little sketch. The thick, sorta messy lines work here.
Black Widow by Batmic- Very nice costuming. The head looks a bit less distinct than the body, though.
Metamorpho by Winterhawk- Pretty good, overall. I would have tried to do something with the hair, though.
Good update, everybody.

genesis: i think the best in the bunch without a doubt. the only thing i can think is to maybe nerd him up a little more, he's clark kent...i think nerdy. with that said, i really like the piece...very strong piece.
miss frost: your best work yet. i like how you handled the white....very well done. i would try and match up the overall piece. by that i mean, the face is crisp and clean...the rest of the image is a little muted and somewhat blurry...really though...great work.
many faces of jake: nice concept.
fantastic four: nice work....i would love to see a larger version. i like the dark blues.
black widow: i've seen most of these....and this is really the best one. the reason why? the decision to use a texture overlay. you might try using the displacement or liquify tool to mold the tedture and widow images to the curve of body. maybe a slight more sheen to the costume...but really it's a fine piece.
metamorpho: simple, and it works. the white on the face is really impressive. i would like to have seen some various hues of oranges and purples. a slight dodging to the green eyes (just a stroke to the upper half of the eyes) would really give them a nice pop and hint of light pooling on them. nice work....old picture, wish my old pictures looked this good. http://www.comics2film.com/UBB/smile.gif

Doc Ock by phonock - Oh, my God. I've always wanted to see Elton as Doc Ock! Great idea http://www.comics2film.com/UBB/biggrin.gif

"Wherefore Art Thou Romeo? by Undertow- Interesting. Cool idea. "

Elton do fit being doc ock don't you think and he has an evil smile too?
Okay, not gonna do a full UIR (especially with a new update just around the corner!), but I oughta review one particular piece, in the spirit of reciprocation and all that...
Genisis: Clark Kent by Juvenilemike
First, about the "Genisis" thing, can you change a piece's title when editing your artwork? I've never tried, but I think there's an option for that. Changing the actual pic is easier said than done obviously, but you should be able to do something if the problem's only in the title, as it is here.
Now, the actual critique: Another great piece, in a very good series. I think this is the best of the three so far, and look forward to the finale. The Frankensteining's well done, as are the recolour and additions. Great recolour, in fact. Good casting as well, he looks very right for the character. Good work with the face. It's still pretty obviously mirrored, but you've changed it up enough to look realistic.
Now, my nitpicks. (And that's all I can find!) There's a number of little details that don't quite work for me... The neck is again "weird." I think it's the shading, the curve of which gives the illusion of a sort of bulge. Plus I think the head is just a touch too low down, and maybe (once again) a fraction too small. I think the shadows around the nose are a touch overdone, they're too sharp and stick out a lot IMO. And the one on the screen left seems to have an odd greenish tint, though its hard to be sure at this size. The shadows on the face are also a lot sharper than those on the suit. There's nothing even remotely approximating those really sharp shadows on the right side of the face, for example. I'm also not too sure about the tie. This maybe a function of the compression, but it looks like one uniform mass, with little detail. I'd have made the knot more obvious, darkening the area under it and maybe putting in a crease in the middle (which you see in a lot of ties). The shape of the tie is slightly lopsided, also.
Hmm... I wrote more there than I thought I would. Like I said though, they're all really just nitpicks. This is a great piece, the best of the three by far and I think the best piece of the update.

select few I looked at comments
Supercindy by cmeza- I like the costume, but the picture turned out really grainy, making her hair blonde would be nice too since s.g. is a blonde and art notes would be great as well
Another Brought Back... by RoadWolf- It just looks like you super impossed the crow intoa cartoon background , you should smudge or shade a bit around the edges of the crow so he doesn't look so much like a sticker
Dazzler (alternate) by sensor girl- This looks a lot like Rahne from N.X.A.X. you should make the eyes a bit more blue, it looks like they may have lost their color in saving. The power effect is great though, it would look better if something was going on around her hand rather than them floating around like bubbles though.
Miss Frost by digitized- I like the hair, it just doesn't look real it's a great picture other than how blury it gets down by her boots.
Black Widow by Batmic- I love this picture, only because B.W. is one of my favs. I like the embossed spider, but the gold belt and band look really cheesy, they're too bright or something, I can't put my finger on it right now.
