Red Dead Redemption Player Creates DC Comics' Grifter Avatar

One Red Dead Online player has recreated DC Comics' Cole Cash/Grifter in the game's character creation mode.

On r/DCcomics, user RedHood_Outlaw posted a picture of their Red Dead Online character alongside art of Grifter, and the resemblance is uncanny. The art specifically comes from Jorge Jimenez and Phil Cho. The replies to the image praise RedHood_Outlaw's work.

Created by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, Cole Cash/Grifter first appeared in 1992's WildC.A.T.S. #1. The superhero is adept with guns and in hand-to-and combat. Originally, Grifter was a part of  WildStorm. However, when Lee sold that line to DC, Grifter became property of DC. Since that sale, Grifter has appeared in several comic books, including his own self-titled series as part of the New 52 reboot in 2011. Grifter has not, as of writing, appeared in live-action, though he did play a role in the Wild C.A.T.s animated series and the Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox animated film, which released in 1994 and 2013, respectively.

The specific character in RedHood_Outlaw's post was made in Red Dead Online, a multiplayer mode for Red Dead Redemption 2. That service launched shortly after the game and is available as a standalone title. Red Dead Online features its own missions and narrative, though with a multiplayer twist. Despite some initial critiques regarding Red Dead Online's in-game currency transactions, players and critics have generally praised the game. Regular updates for Red Dead Online are still being released as of writing.

A prequel to 2010's Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 released in 2018. The game, which was developed and published by Rockstar, follows Arthur Morgan, an outlaw working with the Van de Linde gang. The open-world game takes place in 1899, just as the Wild West period is ending.

Development on Red Dead Redemption 2 began shortly after the original's release and cost more than $500 million to make. Despite that high price tag, Red Dead Redemption 2 was a hit with fans and critics. As of 2021, more than 39 million units of the game have shipped, making it one of the best-selling titles ever. Reviews for Red Dead Redemption 2 are also incredibly positive, with many praising the title as one of the best video games ever.

Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online are available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows and Stadia.
