Premium- Jupiter's Legacy -The Old Age Makeup On 'Jupiter's Legacy,' Ranked From Least To Most Convincing
Please allow me to begin this article by saying I do not envy the makeup artists who were in charge of imagining what a 12o-year-old superhero is supposed to look like. Since the core heroes in Jupiter's Legacy gained their powers in 1929, and are still going strong in 2021, the show has to walk a fine line between conveying the fact that they age much slower than normal humans, while also ensuring their faces betray the ways time has taken a toll on them. Unfortunately, not all of the old age makeup on Jupiter's Legacy is created equal.
Normally, this isn't the sort of thing that would bug me. I can't even put eyeliner on my own face, so who I am to judge next level makeup artistry? But the level of commitment to the old age makeup on the core heroes is so varied, it's hard not to raise an eyebrow when you compare Leslie Bibb's barely there crow's feet to Josh Duhamel's unwavering commitment to The Utopian's disgruntled grandpa aesthetic. What I'm saying is, some of the older versions of the Union of Justice are more convincing than others (and at least one of them will be haunting my dreams forever).
Read on for a complete ranking of the old age makeup on Jupiter's Legacy from "it's like they're not even trying" to "OK, that's a little bit too real."
