Maybe it's Deathnote saying "You're next"...or maybe it's Steelheart behind him.
This may or may not be accurate, but I read Deathpoint's charcter as kind of punkish...one of those loud, lanky, life-of-the-party guys whose favorite passtime is driving around in a fast car and whistling at the ladies. When he's not killing people and robbing banks for fun :/
So that's kind of how I portrayed him.
And I gave Steelheart long hair. (The prologue only said it was black! And it differentiates him visually from clean-cut Superman).
