Character Contest 17: Mirror Universe

I had a lot of fun seeing the side-by-side heroes from last time’s “Golden Age / Modern Age” theme, so I want to do something similar this week by introducing a time-honored trope of the genre: the “Mirror Universe / Evil Twin” contest!

st-mirror
(Image copyright Marvel Comics. You can tell the Kirk on the left is evil because no SANE man would wear his uniform OPEN like that! Don’t tell Picard.)

Your challenge is to design two versions of the same character, one “good” and one “evil”. They might be from mirror universes (like the classic Star Trek episode) or they might be twins of the one-good, one-evil variety (like every soap opera series ever written), or one might be an evil clone of the other (calling the extended Parker clone family), or whatever else you like. You can choose any genre and any sort of hero, but you have to have two versions, one good and one evil. You can either post the images separately, or put them together like I did above.

You have one week, starting today and ending next Tuesday. All entries must be left as links to an image or images in the comments to this post, and all images must be 100% HeroMachine-generated. The winner will get to choose either any item he or she wants, or their caricature, put into HeroMachine 3 for all to see and love.

Good luck everyone, I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  1. This sounds like fun. I’ve actually just created a character with an evil version, from a alt. time line. I have the good version done, but need to make the evil one.

  2. Entry #1: The Phantom – On Earth 001 The Phantom is an evil individual that sells his services as a master thief and Assassin, but on Earth 031 The Phantom is infact a Crime fighter and Bounty Hunter using his Ghosting abilities to track down and capture villians like his counter part.

  3. Cool, I think I might have fun with this one.

  4. Jeff, does husband and wife count, you know better half/worse half thing.

    Ok I realize they are not exactly twins but let me explain.

    I created Hammerhawk a while back using an early version of HM2 (i think). When Hammerhawk first got his powers, it created a darker version of him. Bloodzoch (Note:zoch rhymes with hawk)is the personification of Hammerhawk’s dark, evil side. The two are arch enemies, constantly meeting each other in battle. Or, if you want to put it simpy: Hammerhawk is to the Sentry as Bloodzoch is to the Void

  6. Ariel, a fairy:

    Leira, Ariel’s Darkworld counterpart:
    http://s604.photobucket.com/albums/tt121/whittierstrong/Mirror%20Universe/?action=view&current=hm3-beta32.png

    Found a bug in the process, Jeff–it wouldn’t let me make a duplicate of the “spacy” font on Leira’s pic, so I ended up using the “bony” font for the rest of the text.

  7. This is just one of my guys (The good guy). One with helm, and one without. I’ll repost this version and the evil version together later depending, after I get the evil one made.

    The reason I’m posting him now, is I need to know if he qualifies. I made this guy a couple days ago, and saved him. When I reloaded a few minutes later he was stripped almost everything was gone(Multiple shirts, pants, insignias, etc. all gone, just a single pair of pants and shirt left, with his head. (I had it to do that to me the other day with another character.)

    So here’s a rundown.
    1. Everything was Made in Heromachine 3
    2. Made on 3 Seperate Saves/Occasions and Pieced together in Paint
    3. Body from neck down originally Save 1, but didn’t save right, so that’s gone from the program (Original Screen Capture. I do have it saved Includes Head.)
    4. Shield Save 2
    5. Helmet, including Head and Neck Save 3
    6. To make head with helmet fit onto body, I used the collar in tops (row 2 – Item 1) took paint and erased the bottom, and then overlapped it over original head and neck(exactly the same as original head, but with helmet).

    So since I didn’t actually edit him, and just pieced him together, I don’t know if he’s allowed or not?

  8. I can’t believe Isia hasn’t killed you yet, HK. :D

  9. Excellent contest idea, Jeffrey!

  10. @Imp, she’s the better half.

  11. I don’t know about a husband/wife thing, that’s not really what I had in mind … but it’s your entry, do what you will.

  12. So Jeff, Is my guy eligible? If so I’ll start on his other half tommorow, if not, I’ll try to come up with something else.

  13. I trust you MartianBlue, your guy should be fine.

  14. In Universe A, Ted Harrison was a somewhat eccentric inventor who created an armored, winged suit, and fought crime as the Night Moth.

    In Universe B, Ted Harrison was a badly wounded veteran of the United States’ failed war in South Africa in the 1980s. He was surgically grafted into a cybernetic suit and became the Iron Moth, an enforcer for the CIA/FBI/NSA troika that overthrew the US government in 1995.

  15. In this one I went with a slapstick-type twist on the classic “robotic doppelganger” theme, by having the robotic “twin” show only the vaguest resemblence to anyone living, let alone his target. I tried to give the target, “John”, a look as if he was rolling his eyes. Constructive criticism of how that turned out is greatly appreciated.

  16. @martianblue

    The not saving thing happens to me too. I know this is going to sound really long winded but if I’m doing an overly detailed hero, I save it as “hero 1″ add a couple of items then save it as “hero 2″. I then refresh the screen and open the newer version to see if it’s worked. If it has, then I delete the older one, add a couple of items and do the same. I know it’s long but it really helps if you like to go mad on the detail, or if you have a rubbish internet connection that keeps cutting out, or forget to plug your laptop in.

    P.S. Cool hero. Nice job. Love the layered chest and shoulder pieces.

  17. @Jeff, thanks, just wanted to be on the safe side.
    @Lawrence, That’s key advice, I’ll keep that in mind, the little extra trouble would be more than worth it in the long run for a big project. Thanks for the compliment, that is my flag bearer, my main and favorite character.

  18. MartianBlue, that’s a very good helmet. I went to check HM3 because i thought Jeff had put it in!

  19. @Eric Thanks, and sorry for getting your hopes up. I put alot of work into it, and actually it turned out better than I could’ve hoped, which just goes to show the true potential HM3 has. On a side note, if Jeff decided he wanted to put the helmet in, I wouldn’t mind.

  20. posted the stories of both to

    good guy
    Endir’s father was a famous mage-warrior who has fallen into disgrace with his order and people for loving a human.He joined the nomadic tribe of his beloved and soon afterwards Endir was born.
    He frew up in a loving, warm home altough his banishment would weigh heavely on his father from time to time. When Endir was old enough, his father tought him everything he knew. when he was old enough, he preferred the liberty of
    a mercenary life than the ridgid army life. He soon build a solid reputation for himself and could live comfortabily. Endir might be a mercenary, but he has high standards and does not take any job

    bad guy
    Unlike his counterpart, D. Endir did not have a loving childhood. In his dimension, his father succumbed to to pressures put on him by his family, left his human lover and married a woman approved by his family.
    When he was 8, his father left his family to join his true love. His mother, not able to face the scandal, commited suicide. D. Endir was raised by a series of relatives and was dumped in the army when he was old enough.
    He soon showed the same talent in magic as his father but he has to bitter to be of much use. It came as no surprise that he deserted and started his own gang of thieves, murderers and rogues.
    When the authorities closed in on him, he created a portal to escape. But he was in to much of a hurry and did not speak the words correctely and ended up in another dimension.
    In this dimension, his counterpart was only half elven and was happy and good. Enraged by what might have been, he swore to destroy his good counterpart.

  25. I’m not going to get into great detail about the story, but basically, The Centennial Shield and Brain Genius are the same guy, both from the future, from different realities. Brain Genuis and his reality was created when The Centennial Shield was sent back through time to the dark ages and completed his mission, thus eliminating his need for future creation. So he’s basically a time traveling Kamikaze. Later Brain Genius discovers The Centennial Shield and thinking he can control him, creates a perfect clone body of The Centennial Shield. Brain Genius then calculates the perfect moment to pull The Shield into his reality, hence the need for the clone body cause The Shield’s had to be destroyed so that his reality is created, and the Shield still exists. Bringing them both to exist in the same reality in the near future

  31. @Jeff: I tried to create a new ID because I’ve been having trouble with seeing the forum posts as well. I never got the confirmation for the new one.

  32. This entry features male/female fraternal twins, rather than identical ones. It also blatently rips off DC’s New Gods by having each one the ruler of a pair of sister planets. To keep with them being twins, they use the same head shape (albeit with the female one scaled down), and each also wears a jewel around their neck the same shade as their sibling’s skin, prehaps because deep down inside, theys still care for each other….

    Thanks.

  35. Yeah, the UGO forums techie guys are… I don’t know what they are. They’re not doing their job, that’s for sure. Even the simple BB code like smilies and bold/italics/underline etc doesn’t work there. You have to do everything manually.

    Although they DO seem to have gotten rid of those annoying pop-up adverts. :D

  36. Jeff–
    I just signed up for a new account using my new e-mail. No problems–I got the e-mail and clicked the the link–until I get to the screen telling me I can proceed to update my profile, preferences, etc. Whatever I click, I’m sent to the exact same series of pages I e-mailed you about before. It would seem to me that the system is unable to take new members as things stand, or else some of us are being blocked for reasons unknown.

  37. Wow, that’s really irritating, Whit, sorry about that. I am getting no response out of them at all on this one way or the other so I don’t know what’s going on. Very frustrating, though.

  39. Here are two versions of The Eagle. In sort of keeping with the “Mirror, Mirror” origins of this contest, which its Empire vs Federation motif, we have an Imperial Eagle vs an American Eagle.

    http://www.eldacur.com/~brons/Comics/Eagles.png

    I’m not sure that I would call the Imperial Eagle “evil”, but he does represent a militaristic authoritarian bent, whereas the American Eagle is a more individually heroic democratic hero.

    I suppose there’s a little of the Golden Age / Modern Age look to the characters as well, since the American Eagle’s Red, White and Blue look is a bit retro and the Imperial Eagle’s harsher look is a bit grim and gritty. Ah, well.

  40. I decided to go for Schizophrenia, two people in the same body. It’s a fairly simple design. Meet Tiffany Garrison AND Tiff Garrison, two in the same (body that is, lol):

    Short bio:
    “All work and no play makes Tiff want to come out and play.” Oh no, she got out again. “Can we please not do this, tonight.”, Tiffany pleaded, staring at herself in the mirror. Well, sort of. She didn’t have ownership over her body at the moment. “No! We had an agreement, didn’t we? You get your boring days at school, torturing yourself over French class, and, well,…I get nights out, torching some poor boy as he tries to remember the ‘safe word’.” Tiffany,…rather Tiff, applied the final touches of the mascara to her face. “I really don’t know why you don’t wear makeup. It’s a serious upgrade to your appearance. Can’t go throughout life looking drab all the time, now can we?” All Tiffany could do was watch. Tonight was going to be a rather eventful night.

  44. @kingmonkey all three are working for me now aswell. I tried them each a couple times yesterday and nothing? But the important thing is they work now.

  45. I know you won’t be working on new content for awhile Jeff, but I was wondering about an extra feature some time in the near future. Here’s what I have in mind, I’m going to use my helmet as an example of custom content, Once the codes are in, then sharing custom content will be easy, but if there was a way to add custom pieces to an overall picture that would be great. Using the codes, we can share poses, items, etc., but it would be neat to add custom items, without having to remake your character. Just a thought, I don’t know if this would even be possible.

  53. Also, Jeff you didn’t state that we couldn’t use characters from previous contests on this one. I don’t know if that was an over site or not, but when You posted this contest, I immediately thought of Major Justice’s Evil Clone.

    Major Justice, from the 4th of July contest:
    http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/5_NptXXgepqRnXOyVUr4tQ?feat=directlink

    And his Evil Clone, Major Injustice:
    http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/rg3yy-KxrXHafGO2UxlXpg?feat=directlink

    I had wanted to have Major Injustice giving you, the readers, the ‘finger’, but I couldn’t figure out a way to do it. Maybe I’ll suggest that on the next time you ask for ideas :)

    And if you don’t want repeats, then of course disregard this post. But you might make Major Injustice very angry with you…….

  54. I have a second entry to post. My first one wasn’t more of an Empire/Federation style pair rather than Good/Evil, so I thought I should try for the light/dark good/evil contrast. The result is “Nightshade”, a mystic hero/villain of the Spectre, Ghost or Deadman variety, in part inspired by Jeff’s comparison of my entry in the last contest to “The Ghost who walks”.

    http://www.eldacur.com/~brons/Comics/Nightshades.jpg

    Nightshade in either form is a ghostly figure of retribution. In the first image, we see him as an agent of Justice, doomed to linger on earth righting wrongs until the karmic burden of a misspent life. He bears the ankh, the symbol of Life. The color scheme I chose for him is light, and purplish to reflect the color of deadly nightshade.

    The second Nightshade is a figure of cruel vengeance, continuing, rather than atoning for his misspent life. The color scheme is the black of night and the red of blood; his symbol the invert pentagram. My original vision of him was with a lower body of trailing smoke like that shown on many a cartoon genie. I didn’t like any of the versions of that that I came up with, so he wears a skirt.

    In yin/yang fashion the color scheme of each is tinged with a bit of the other’s in the form of their mystic energy. The good/light Nightshade wields a dark energy ball. The dark/evil Nightshade’s white skull is wreathed in a golden light. Each was considered a very slight reminder that but for a fateful choice, he could have been the other.

    Brons

  55. After posting my previous message, I just couldn’t leave the dark Nightshade the way i posted him. He really was supposed to have a plume of smoke instead of legs, so I tried doing it one more time and got something close enough to what I had envisioned to post it instead of the silly skirt. So, here goes Nightshades, rev 2….

    http://www.eldacur.com/~brons/Comics/Nightshades-2.jpg

    The light/good Nightshade is unchanged. The lower body and the skull flames are changed on dark/evil Nightshade. (I used the one that had been on his skull as a major component of his “legs”, so I needed to change it and found a new one whose contour followed his jawline nicely. Better all around, I think.)

    Story line remains the same.

    Ahura And His Evil Twin, Angra.

    Ahura http://i37.tinypic.com/mufvx3.jpg

    Angra http://i33.tinypic.com/11jrps1.jpg

    In the 2nd largest kingdom, the king was murdered by the evil tyrant Mangala. The pregnant queen, and her three sisters were spared, under the condition that she give up her newborn son to Mangala. Mangala was an evil dark king, and a conqueror. He planed on taking the kings son, and raising it as his own, due to his disappointment in having a daughter. The night the queen gave birth, she discovered that she was pregnant with twins. She had become very ill during this time, and her dieing wish was for her sisters to save one of the babies. They gave the newborn child named Ahura to a group of knights to be raised to help in the fight to over throw the evil Mangala. Mangala didn’t keep his word. He slaughtered the sisters, and took the newborn baby which was given the name Angra. Both twins carried the royal birthmark upon there right shoulders.

    Ahura was raised by the band of white knights, and quickly became there most skilled warrior, and leader.

    Angra was raised as a ruthless murderous dark knight, became king of his homeland, but always followed under his “masters” rule. Mangala ruler of the largest kingdom, had planed on Angra marring his daughter Allura after his death, and becoming ruler of both kingdoms.

  59. You know Jeff, an Idea just popped up in my head for next week’s contest… Say I want to do reimaged take on someone Else’s HM character, and put my own personal spin on it. And after that, that person could do one of my creations or someone else’s? It’s sort of like what a new comic book artist does when He/she has to work on a new character, they put their own personal touch on it. Well, what do you think?

  60. Jeff, I’m sure you answered this before, but how do you enter your piece into a contest. This is the first time I’ve done it and I can’t seem to find the instructions.

  61. Here we have two versions of the same man. As a child, his family was killed in a war. In one reality, he grows up to become a soldier, in order to protect others from suffering the same fate as him. In the other, he grows up to become an anti-war activist, to try and stop wars altogether. I guess the “evil” one is really up to the viewer to decide, as either one can be seen as the proper path for the boy to take as an adult…

    http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn48/GeroTheKeymaster/MirrorContestIII.jpg

  62. Ok, I used to play City of Heroes a lot and they’ve got something that fits this, Praetoria (aka Praetoria Earth). For those who don’t know, Praetoria is a mirror universe heroes of a certain security levels can travel to (never was able to do so, only got my primary hero to the early 30s security levels, think 32 was the highest I got) where they get to square off against evil counterparts to the NPC heroes that train them. So since the heroes of Praetoria are actually evil versions of heroes in the regular universe, thought I’d take and design my old character and his Praetorian opposite. So here it is.

    PW Blazer
    http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/5277/pwblazer.jpg

    Hero. A scrapper of the magical origin. His powers are granted to him by the mystical sword known as the star sword (from which he gets his starburst insignia) he carries. As such, his primary powerset was broad sword. Naturally this meant he was a skilled swordsman. Secondary power set as a compliment to his primary was super reflexes which made him harder to hit in a fight. For power pools he had access to flight, leaping, teleportation, and medicine. Flight became his primary transportation power while leaping was selected just for the jump kick to add more punch to his arsenal. TP was picked to bring villians to him and help teammates get someplace fast. And medicine was originally selected to heal teammates. He became the leader of the supergroup Rogue Wing. The image is based on his new costume he got at level 20(sans his trademark aviator sunglasses which I forgot to add).

    KD Flare
    http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/9470/kdflare.jpg

    Flare is the Praetorian version of PW Blazer. He carriers a scimitar instead of a broadsword from which his powers come. This scimitar is the phoneix sun sword. His powers are pretty much the same as PW’s, though he’d use concealment in place of medicine. He’s more interested in striking opponents before they can see him than in aiding others. Aside different colors to his costume he wears the winged headgear that was a part of PW’s level 30 new costume. The only actual differences to his costume are the sunburst insignia instead of the starburst insignia, the skulls of some of his victims used for shoulder, kneepads, and his belt, and the scalloped cape without a maltese style cross design on it.

  63. Eric, just make a JPG or PNG of it (either using your operating system’s screen print function, or the built-in buttons on HM3) and put it on a public web server somewhere. There are lots of free sites that host images, like imageshack.com, picasaweb.com, photobucket.com, and lots more. You can also put them on the UGO.com forums in the HeroMachine Archives folder if you want. Then make a comment here containing the link to the image.

  68. He was our greatest weapon against the Nazi’s but while on a mission in occupied France, the Patriot was captured. He managed to escape but not before Nazi scientists had harvested his DNA. Now Hitler has created his own weapon. Stronger, faster, smarter … perfect.

  71. Here’s War(Left) and then Peace(Right)Juan Vasquez’s parents were gunned down by two opposing factions. He later in life decided to use his super strength and healing to stop those factions.

  72. Here’s War(Left) and then Peace(Right)Juan Vasquez’s parents were gunned down by two opposing factions. He later in life decided to use his super strength and healing to stop those factions. In the “war” reality he used a set of weapons and his abilities to become an one-man-army to kill those factions and create a new Faction as War
    . In the “Peace” reality he became an UN peacekeeper to stop the factions legally. When he got his abilities he became the UN’s superhero, Peace. He stops trouble by using his abilities and two electric guns.

    @Lawrence Thanks

    I Hope To Make 1 Last Submission Before Tomorrow.

  76. Ok, I entered this one in the Independence Day contest, but decided to revisit him for this one cause I thought of something with some of the time travel shows and such. So here’s Tom Aran, USAAF officer, circa ’44:

    And now imagine an alternate universe where Hitler starts WWII in ’37 and manages to take over the East coast in ’40 and the war is still being fought in the ’50s. Here’s Tom Aran, Luftwaffe officer, circa ’52:

    http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/6670/tomaran2.jpg

    The US branch of the Luftwaffe is run by the SS (Goring was less than pleased by this, but Hitler placed the East Coast under the authority of the SS) so all officers must also be SS members.

    Sir Cedric Brightheart

    Cedric and Pendragon were twin brothers born under omnious circunstances. The day they were born the anniversary of Io’s separation, when the ancient dragon split in Tiamat and Bahamut, the dragons of dark and light, respectively.
    Their mother died at birth, their father was unknown, so they were both taken by a group of priests. However, one of the holy men was actually an undercover agent of Tiamat, and tried to take one of the babies with him, Cedric. He was saved by the priests of Bahamut, but was marked with a fraction of the Dark Curse of Tiamat. Cedric was taken to a noble family of knights to raise him, while his brother was raised by the priests themselves. While Cedric was raised ignorant, his brother, Pendragon, was raised knowing fully what happened, and trained by the priests to be the perfect paladin and to be able to protect his ill fortunate brother when the time came. When the boys were 16 years old, Pendragon had a vision about his brother, and ran from the monastery to the castle which he knew his brother was raised. On the way there he found a group of Tiamat’s followers, who were after his brother to complete the ritual they began years before and he clashed with them. He was eventually defeated, and made a deal with them. He would bear the mark of Tiamat instead of his ignorant brother, and Cedric would be spared. They accepted the deal, and his hair turned silver as his soul was corrupted by evil. Cedric, ignorant of all this, was raised happy and healthy, and eventually became a paladin of Bahamut. His brother, on the other hand, became a scion of Tiamat and a tyrant.

  78. what objects are u working on now Jeff

  79. Not working on HM3 at the moment Chase, it’s on hiatus for a few weeks while I hastily crank out a new UGO-client-sponsored mini version.

  80. @Lawrence The experimental picture is cool. Great job on the reflection, and The Nazi guy is also awsome. He looks very menacing. You did a great job with the glove removal, and the overall outfit.

  81. dementedtheclown

    @martainblue

    Agreed

  82. @Lawrence: I like the good Patriot’s insignia.

  83. HELP! how do u put 2 characters together in one image? its not working!!! @ anyone who knows!

  84. Dont worry then ppl ill post the images separtely… (sigh)

  85. I hope this isn’t too late to enter, but I have another pair of doppelgangers to present.

    The Hierophant, who tries to usher in Universal harmony under his benevolent dictatorship:
    http://lh4.ggpht.com/_ljMRt8JxU2I/SsI9KWZMC8I/AAAAAAAAAGk/l3YjH63Y6os/Hierophant.png.jpg

    The Blasphemer, born of the Hierophant’s suppressed rage, who seeks freedom and anarchy from the Hierophant’s rule, and a universe in chaos:
    http://lh3.ggpht.com/_ljMRt8JxU2I/SsJJ8ac7kDI/AAAAAAAAAGo/7rnq1R8z6Rk/Blasphemer.png.jpg

    Each one is a mix of good and evil, but they are still each other’s diametric opposite. This is more a Law vs. Order pairing, than a Good vs. Evil one. I guess that doesn’t necessarily matter for the terms of the contest, though.

  86. This entry is totally rushed and not very good as i had no time to enter this week… hope this still counts… :(

    The first is Eaglestar, born of a human father and a superhero mother with the ability to fly. When he was 14 he found he could fly and he could conduct energy from the stars. That same year, his mother and father divorced and as soon as his mother became weak Eaglestar decided to protect them and other people from evil. Meanwhile, his father (David) had a baby (Saviour) with his new wife, Sophia.But Saviour was fully human. As he got older, Saviour found out about his stepbrother and became extremely jealous.He asked his stepbrother to teach him advanced combat, and Eaglestar did (being a kind man). The boy then constucted a villain costume (with cool flaming glove!) and his alter ego: Phoenixshadow. From that day on Phoenixshadow was his stepbrothers arch-nemesis, blaming him for the fact that if Eaglestar’s parents hadnt divorced, maybe he too would have superpowers.
    Sorry for the rubbish storyline folks!

  87. Soccer, if you have windows, you can save the pictures on your computer, open one of them in MS Paint, cut it out, open the other picture, and paste the first one into it. Then move the pasted one so that you can see both the way you want, and save as a new picture…

  88. What Gero said. You have to have some basic skills with an image editor like Paint or PhotoShop or whatnot.

  89. Oh! Thanks Gero and Jeff! Thats easy peasy! But theres not much point in doing it all over again. Thank you anyway! :)
