Although not speaking of Kal-El, son of Jor-El, this man of steel is ready to take to the sky.
Morgan190 has been rather busy of late, posting several new custom minifigures on Flickr.
Xaelus uses BrickForge vambraces and Prince of Persia Hassansin claws and shoulder pads on the feet.
The cutlass appears to be standard minfigure issue (part 2530), while the helmet looks like part 2446 with the chin guard cut, but something seems 'strange' about it.
The silver part jutting out of Xaelus' chest and the wings? No idea, but they might be action figure parts.
Now that I think about it, Xaelus has a passing resemblance to Casey Jones from TMNT!
