Character Contest 91: The Phantom ________

Note: Phantom Stranger is already taken so don't do it!

I’m going to try something a little different this week with our own HeroMachine version of Mad Libs. You’ll have to fill in the following description for your character, replacing the blanks. For instance, the name is “The Phantom _______,” so you’d replace the blanks with a word to name your character. You might go for “The Phantom PIRATE” or “The Phantom NINJA” or “The Phantom CHIPMUNK.”

So here’s your description. You don’t have to do any of these except the character title, but it would be fun to play along if you are so inclined:

The Phantom _____!

Straight from the pages of _____ Comics, it’s the _____-spangled adventurer! Along with sidekick “_____ the _____ Wonder “, racing through _____ City on the astounding _____-mobile, you won’t believe what you see!

The person with the winning entry as selected by our expert panel (i.e. me) will win their choice of a) a portrait to go in HeroMachine 3, b) an item to go in HeroMachine 3, or c) a custom black and white “Sketch of the Day” style drawing (also by me). The rules otherwise are the same as always:

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image cannot have been used in any previous HeroMachine character design contest;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). If you see “preview” or “rotate” somewhere in the link you’re probably doing it wrong.
  • All entries must be in by next Monday, when I’ll choose a winner.

No limit on entries this week, so knock yourselves out. Just make them good!

  1. Hey Jeff,

    You still have the Random Name Generator bit in the rules.

  2. The Phantom Lady, doesn’t really work with the Mad lib thing though.

    I must admit, your Mad Libs style form just puts me in mind of fun times as a child, where pretty much every other blank space in Mad Libs was filled-in with the word “poop”. And it was hilarious.

  4. Thanks dblade, updated now.

  5. This is Phantom Justice. He appears before those guilty of heinous crimes. Any guilty parties who lack remorse for their actions or have been found not guilty by a court despite their wrong-doing will answer to him. He serves lady justice as her judge and jury. If the crime fits, he occasionally acts as executioner. http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2012/142/0/0/phantom_justice_by_mcknighthc-d50pqbv.png

    Character Contest 91: The Phantom ________
    The Phantom Racer
    Hopefully he doesn’t get DQed for being heavily inspired by some actual characters. The main inspiration is obvious but I have always wanted to create a similar character of my own. Patrols the night dispensing justice and vengeance two side of the same coin for him, often seen on motor bike, he can sense sin and quilt on his prey and can also sense the absence of these traits, if one he approaches is innocent he leaves them be if not he punishes them. He does this through either violence, wielding his chain and hell fire or through a forced empathy stare, this weapon however will only work on those with at least a shred of conscious, those who do not or cannot feel empathy will be immune to this stare.

    This is the Phantom Golem! He is in transition into the night to being a Phantasmic Golem. He phases through everything but his weapon doesn’t. You can’t lay a hand on him, but he can cause some damage!

  15. @Jeff, I wanted to stick to your rules as closely as possible and I had what i think was a pretty good idea for what you asked, I needed to change a few words to go with my idea but I hope you approve.

    ( I’m trying to break out from my usual colors and poses, I am still working on how to make a background go with it all, i have succeeded a few times but I went without one this time )

  19. @Jeff, how come my time where I am is an hour ahead of whatever time the post says it is posted at? Was wondering how that worked. Also I an observation and suggestion. You have been pretty busy lately and have been making many of the Caption Contest and Character Contest a “no limit” event. Why not go back to only having one entry that way its easier for you and it makes people work harder to make something good or think up of something really witty. Just a thought…

    Heyla!

    Tried to make the story work, didn’t work. LOL!

    I do not look at other entries, until I post mine, so if there is any resemblance to another character, it is strictly by Coincidence. I actually created this one two weeks ago or so? And decided to enter her. I’ve been experimenting with the shading aspect, that I think adds another dimension to her. I could do more, but with a computer from the earlier decade, it slows down too much to actually do a lot of layers and patterns. Until I update my computer, this is pretty much what I can do at the moment.

  59. From my personal collection of “The Forsaken Tales of Astranthys”:
    The Phantom Warlorld of Karthax:

    http://i861.photobucket.com/albums/ab175/KingSlaughter/Kingslaughter_thePhantomWarlordofKarthax.png

    Story:
    It is written in the dark scriptures of the Eternal Dominion that every 100 years, the baleful Lord of Karthax emerges from the grave to challenge the strongest warriors in the Kingdom of Astranthys. Dwelling as a wraith in the ruins of once glorious Karthax, the birthplace of warriors and mages, he appears in the dreams of only the bravest of men and presents them his provoking challenge; “Defeat me and thou shalt possess the eternal riches hidden beneath Karthax’s ruins”, “Defeat me and thou shalt rule the entire world”. Many challengers who have answered his call seek for him in the ruins of the royal tower of the forsaken city, in hope that they will grasp the opportunity for eternal glory as well as all the riches a mortal man is able to desire… Yet their vanity and greed soon prove to become their ill-fated downfall, since Lord Karthax, the mightiest warrior of a forgotten realm long lost, still stands indomitable in the passing of the Ages, harvesting the souls of his formerly ambitious opponents, who lie now utterly overwhelmed and vanquished, screaming for mercy at the feet of the ruthless apparition Warlord. Yet no one can aid them anymore. They are forever doomed in eternal darkness, soulless and wretched immaterial beings, trapped inside the soul-reaper ebony blade of the abysmal Lord Karthax, once and for all, granting him even more power for the duels to come, along with a permanent sinister grin that seems to never fade from his ever-decaying face; not until a worthy challenger appears that will finally stick his blade between the evil lord’s eyes and become the new champion of the shadowy citadel of Karthax. Will that day ever come? Or will the gloomy clouds of death keep floating over the Karthax ruins forever? The distant future seems unknown and indefinite…

    The Phantom Slugger!

    Straight from the pages of World Series Comics, it’s the sports-spangled adventurer! Along with his trusty sidekick “Bat-Boy the Southpawed Wonder “, racing through Bantam City on their astounding motorcycle, the Phantom’s Flame, you won’t believe what you see!

    Jack Thompson was a frustrated cop who felt his hands were tied by a corrupt system, until one day he decided that he’d had enough. Donning some catcher’s gear from his college days, he set out to take matters into his own hands. He called himself the Bantam Slugger! The next morning, a group of thugs, bound and bruised but not broken, were found on the steps of the Bantam City police station. They claimed some guy beat them up on the street, but they all had warrants for violent crimes so they were taken in anyway. They said their attacker called himself the Phantom Slugger, probably due to a few lumps to the head, and that was the name the papers printed. A vigilante was born!

    Jack’s son Derrick quickly figured out that his father was the Slugger, and with a little effort, joined him on the streets at night as Bat-Boy, the Southpawed Wonder.

    Now they spend their nights ridding the streets of Bantam City of villainous criminals and protecting its citizens with nothing but skill and an assortment of sports apparel! Of course, their days are spent doing everyday activities, from work and school, to father and son stuff, like going to see their favorite baseball team, the Bantam City Spectres, or just having a catch.

    The Phantom Thief

    The Phantom Thief has the ability to phase through matter (as well as objects attached to her, as she chooses) due to the bracers she designed (and wears). However, it takes an incredible amount of physical energy from her body, meaning it is prudent to only do it in short bursts. Therefore, heists are best conducted in a similar manner to what you see in the picture.

  71. My story takes place in Marwell City (It’s kind of inspired by Berlin’s history) The city was split in half with a giant wall, the ”good” side lives peacefull and united away from the traitors of the ”bad” side where only the evil lives there, gangster, serial killers, maniacs, psycopaths and every kind of crime lives there, it’s like the big wasteland of the ”good” side. Our hero is a rebellion with his companions the White Knights, their purpose is to bring down the wall and make the ”bad” city again normal, but some other want to bring war and make the whole city one productive power of machineguns and war stuff..
    Here is one companion of the White Knights, Saya Merbel

    The “Phantom… of the Opera”, saves maiden from fire:

  83. The Phantom Sue!

    Straight from the pages of Fandom Comics, it’s the trope-spangled adventurer! Along with sidekick “Scrappy the Annoying Robot Wonder”, racing through Storytelling City on the astounding Deus Ex Machina-Mobile, you won’t believe what you see!

    Mary R’aavn Llynona Roza Blythe Paper-Lourina Sue was an awkward, socially-inept child who was forced into slave-like child labor and abused physically and emotionally until she ran away at the tender age of four. She found her way to the most prestigious university in the world, where she became super-popular among every group on campus and earned her PhD in just two and a half years, becoming not only the youngest graduate from that ultra-prestigious university, but also the youngest PhD anywhere ever. (She would have earned it sooner if she had just double-majored in nuclear physics and xenobiology, but when she insisted on also getting minors in computational linguistics, Aristotelian philosophy, and underwater basket weaving, it put her over that extra half-year.)

    Having finished school, she put her brains (and the seven black-belts she’d earned in her spare time at college) to good use solving crimes, exploring brave new worlds, teaming up with super heroes, and tutoring kids three times her age. Everyone in the world loved her in a deep, passionate, lustful sort of way, including all the people who didn’t usually like women. When she revealed to the world that she was only half-human, as well as being half elf, half dragon, half vampire, and half chihuahua, everyone loved her all the more and decided to lay down the centuries-old feuds that had been happening between the races. There were a few people who didn’t like her, but they were all mean and spiteful anyway so their opinions didn’t count.

    Unfortunately, her wonderful amazingness could not last forever. When she was sixteen, she went on a peacekeeping mission of peace to the City of Tiny Annoying Robots as the youngest-ever ambassador for the humans, elves, dragons, vampires, and chihuahuas, because she had become best friends with Scrappy, the Prince of the Tiny Annoying Robots. As they walked through the thick jungle on the only road to the robots’ city, they were attacked by all the mean and spiteful people who had ever hated her. She used her amazing smarts and skills to kill off all the bad guys, but one of them survived just long enough to get a shot off. The bullet hurtled towards Scrappy, and Mary R’aavn Llynona Roza Blythe Paper-Lourina Sue jumped in just in time to push Scrappy away, taking the bullet herself. She died in her dear friend’s arms, and the whole world mourned her for six months and erected a giant statue of her in every country.

    When she got to heaven, God said she was the most amazing wonderful person ever, and she was too good to stay dead. So God gave her the power to travel the multiverse and spread the joy of her amazingness to any story in any genre, and allowed her to bring her best friend Scrappy along. God also gave her a necklace and pair of earrings and a brand-new katana, which were also extremely powerful and significant.

    Gosh, it’s hard to write a Mary Sue when you’re not parodying any fandom in particular!
    Sorry for the long post. I don’t have time to make it shorter…

    I forgot to say that the whole idea is a kind of a horror-romantisque graphic novel with the classical character as the main protagonist.
