In the history of North American animated series, there are countless characters that have been forgotten. Many cartoons from the 80s and 90s introduced us to characters that are endearing and iconic, but that very few people currently remember.
Examples there are many. Motor Mice from Mars, The Rex Troop, Street sharks and many other anthropomorphic animal superheroes were successful in those days. However, if you are one of those who can claim to have seen these cartoons, you are surely a population at risk.
Among all these characters, there was one who, more than for the series itself, stood out for what it was. Is about Earthworm jim, who we met in Latin America What Jim Worm and that we now remember thanks to an illustration by the artist of God of war.
As his name implies, Earthworm Jim was just like an earthworm, but he acquires his powers thanks to a robotic space suit. The series is based on the video game of the same name, which was originally released for Mega drive in 1994.
Although the original character was in itself a bit strange (that is, imagine a giant earthworm inside a human vessel), the artist of God of war, Stephen Oakley, reimagined Earthworm jim in a more gloomy and creepy way.

Earthworm Jim looks terrifying
Stephen Oakley, conceptual artist of Sony Santa Monica, shared his vision of what it would be like Jim Worm. The truth is, it is uglier than we imagine it could be.
In your official account ArtStation, Oakley published the sketches of this new image of Jim Worm. As might be expected of the principal responsible for the art of God of war, presented this superhero as a terrifying figure, more like a monster than an earthworm.
The cartoon and video games of Earthworm jim they were entertaining. The cartoonish style of the 90s was nice, but after all these years it might be good to reinvent it. Although we never expected the change to be so drastic.
