Dragon Ball Super Art Celebrates Cell with Classic Makeover

Cell was the combination of the cells from both the Z-Fighters and several of their enemies, created by the nefarious Dr. Gero of the Red Ribbon Army. With the criminal organization making a return this year via Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, fans have been debating the role that Cell would play if any. Now, one fan artist has taken the opportunity to recreate all of the forms of the villain that ate Androids 17 and 18 in a classical style.   

Without going too deep into spoiler territory for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie, the return of the Red Ribbon Army will certainly come back to bite the Z-Fighters in a number of different ways. Cell as a villain has been quite lacking from the sequel series, Dragon Ball Super, with the arcs of the latest series focusing on villains such as Frieza and Majin Buu. With the current arc of Dragon Ball Super's manga diving into the past of the Saiyans via the Granolah The Survivor Arc, it doesn't seem that the original Cell will be clawing his way back from the afterlife.

Fan Artist Justin96636 has added yet another classical makeover to his roster of re-imaginings within the Dragon Ball universe, creating a wild new scene that combines all the forms of Cell while giving the creation of Dr. Gero a major new aesthetic in the process:

As it stands, Piccolo and Gohan have been confirmed to receive new transformations in this upcoming film, proving that the movie is set to change the power structure within the universe of the Z-Fighters. While the next arc of the manga hasn't been confirmed at this point, we would be surprised if the events of Super Hero have something of an effect on the upcoming tales of Goku and his friends. 

While Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is set to arrive in North America this August, the future of the Dragon Ball Super television series is still anyone's guess, though they definitely have plenty of material to pull from whenever it does decide to hit the small screen once again.
