Character Design Contest ♯39- Colour Coordination

This week, I would like to see you come up with a hero, heroine or villain that is colour themed, like Red Tornado, Green Lantern or Blue Devil. They must include a colour in their name and that colour must be the most prevalent in their costume, though you may include other colours as well. Hopefully this will allow you to concentrate on really good costume design.

Please make sure you have read the rules before entering. As usual, no limit on entries, so have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

    Google Chrome version 29.0.1547.57 has broken the image exporting feature of HeroMachine 3. Until this is resolved, you’ll have to use the text save feature to export your character string into Firefox or Safari and generate the image from there.

    don’t have explorer or firefox. was gonna make something cool but i guess not.

    You could always screenshot your character instead of exporting it and then crop it in an external program. For Mac’s you press cmd-shift-3 and for PC’s you just press the printscreen button.

    I might have time to enter this! Yay!

    PS Re: Chrome/image export. There’s a version of Chrome called Comodo Dragon (legit, it’s a reskinned version promoted by an internet security company) where the image export still works. Works the same as Chrome, just as fast (and handles HM as well).

    If fur counts:

    SILVERBACK – He is an evil super-intelligent gorilla man with the enhanced strength, stamina, durability, agility, dexterity, and senses of an adult mountain gorilla combined with the sophisticated mind of an highly educated scientist.


    BLACK HAWK – He possesses biomechanic wings, hollow airfilled bones like a bird, and night vision. He is a trained Navy Seal and member of the F.L.A.G.W.A.T.C.H. Team “Shadow Ops”.

    BLUEPRINT – He has the power of continuous circumstantial evolution and is thus able to adapt to any situation. Examples include receiving functioning gills when submerged in water, gaining night vision in the dark, being able to survive without oxygen when in space, and his skin becoming fireproof when it is exposed to flames.

    EMERALD GHOST – She has the ability to separate her spirit form from her physical body by will while controlling both her presences, the astral and corporeal. In her spirit form she can become both intangible or solid and phase through solid objects such as walls and people. Also she can make other matter intangible by touching it and possess people as well as machines and control them.

    GOLDEN EAGLE – Ricardo Gonzalez was born with a drastically altered physiology that is naturally adapted to flying. His bones are hollow like a birds which decreases his weight far below usual and his body possesses greater proportionate muscle mass than ordinary. His eyes can withstand high-speed winds and his respiratory system has a special membrane that enables him to extract oxygen from the air at high velocities or altitudes. Ricardos speed of flight averages around 90 miles per hour (144 kph) and even without the help of a tail wind he is capaple to fly at 180 miles per hour (290 kph) for up to an hour before he gets exhausted. He can easily reach a height of 10,000 feet (3 km) but prefers to fly beneath the height of the clouds at 6,500 feet (2 km).

    The Grey Guard
    Victor Tennent was a veteran of many wars including the third American Civil war and The Anglo American War of 3240. Having been trained and genetically enginered from birth to be a soldier, he found that this discovery caused him to do something that no other soldier had done in the last 700 Years. He had gone awol. He went to the american institute of science and used the only working time machine to teleport back to the 21st century where he hoped to find a peaceful life and discover was he really human. But the call of duty was too great and he found that he had impacted his own society far more than he could have thought when he left.

    Lime Light

    I always loved to be the centre of attention,Ya know? Wanted to move to L.A ,become an actress, and make something of myself. Be famous for who I am not what I looked like. My granny always told me “Jenny. One day you will be on every Television in the country, but ya may not like why your on it”. I always hated it when she was right. See my parents weren’t exactly normal…My father worked as a mechanic, my Mom worked as a physics teacher at the university of Chicago. Anyway enough about my life before the coma. See this is where things get weird. One day I’m walking home from school and BAM! Truck hits me. I survive, but I am comatose for a few months. But then I wake up like that and everyone’s staring at me. And I am glowing! Super Powers baby!
    So now I’m fighting crime and all over the T.V doing it. Even got a funky Nickname. Lime Light.

    Just finished this character for one of my teams and I think he fits the scheme quite well, so I’ll post him despite having no back-story for him yet:

    My first submission: Black Marble.
    As queen of an alien elven race, Rivelle inherited a pair of bracelets that allow the wearer to encase their body in an orb of dark light that, though it expands and contracts like rubber, is virtually impervious to non-magical weaponry.
    While the orb is active, it allows the wearer of the bracelets to fly at high speeds and can convert the dark matter of space into a breathable atmosphere of their choosing. Theoretically, interplanetary travel can be achieved (perhaps even at warp speeds), but this is not recommended for those with low spiritual energy, as they could become stranded out in space with nothing to breathe.
    Queen Rivelle had her threshold put to the test when a diplomacy mission to another planet left her homeworld vulnerable to attack. With no home to return to, Rivelle followed the spirit energy contrail of the attacking vessel to Earth, where she enlisted the aid of several of the planet’s finest heroes in turning back the invasion.
    Queen no more, Rivelle must struggle with her new place in the Universe while defending her adoptive homeworld as the Black Marble.

    No idea what’s on the end of that link, mind you. Are we still using that file naming convention? Have tried to follow it…

    During WW2, the French entertainer, Crimson Conjurer, was a spy for the French Resistance. Although she performed stage magic, she had no real magical abilities at all. Instead, she had the power to confuse minds and convince others of whatever she wanted them to believe using intricate hand and body motions.

    Red Eye

    The names Red eye. Red eye is the man you call when you have two things. Money and a lot of it. People say I am perhaps the most expensive assasins on the market to this day, but my price is worth my work. I have taken out dictators, politicians, celebrities, and tycoons over the Years and I am still going. Best part of my life? Having Brandy with David Bowie. Man that guy is something.

    Blue Dove

    Marcus always dreamed of flying. He trained to be a pilot from but never could get his head out of the clouds. One night he was sitting on his car watching the stars shine when, after having closed his eyes for a few minuites, he heard something come towards him. A meteorite was headed right for his car. Getting to his feet he barely escaped the cars explosion but was caught in the radiation blast from the meteorite. With the radiation from the meteorite he could fly and generate shields around him.

    Golden Boy

    (This is a throw back to some of the Golden/Silver age hero’s. Corny names, gimmicks and costumes.)
    Names Harper Sands. Most people call Me the Golden Boy. I’m your typical All american, Red white and blue loving, apple pie eating son of a gun. Now see I’m not here to tell ya’ll I’m the most handsome guy we got on the roster down at the American Forces HQ down in Washington, Oh no. I’m here to talk to you ladies and gents about The good Fight. See America’s got enemies and I am one of the guys the bad guys don’t want to go up against. I’m here to protect my country just like Big Ben…The hero not the clock… Is protecting our friends across the pond.
    God bless America.

    A diplomat was making first contact with a reptilian bipedal alien when the Blue Band Ruffians and the Tandroids attacked DC. The alien asked for an explanation of tactics used to confuse the enemy in war. The diplomat said that it would be “great if that baleful lot were caught up in a purple haze.” The alien blanked most of the diplomat’s memory, donned a purple costume with a built-in mask, started generating purple fibrous protomatter from a ray gun, and began BALING UP THE LOT IN PURPLE ‘HAYS.’ She declared herself Purple Hays, superhero from beyond the galaxy.

    Another color-coordinated heroine: White Lightning

    Welcome to the jungle, baby. Ain’t no fun ‘n’ games here. Just erupting volcanoes and a giant black octopus that wants to suck the flesh off my bones. Unfortunately, so does everything else in this Godforsaken place. I mean, come on! Dinosaurs? Really? I thought those things were extinct. I guess even a badass scientist like myself can be wrong once in awhile.
    My name is Dr. Janet Striker, and I’m a meteorologist. I was flying my portable weather machine from LA to Tokyo when the blasted thing went off, sending my plane crashing to this little speck of dirt in the middle of what I hope is still the Pacific Ocean.
    Using the lightning generators I salvaged from my wrecked invention, I fashioned a pair of wrist-mounted shock blasters that, along with my wilderness training and insane gymnastic skills, have gotten me through just about every scrape I could possibly get into out here.
    If I survive long enough to make my way back to civilization, I’m giving fair warning to whoever sabotaged my invention and crashed my plane: You’d better make yourself hard to find, because you never know where White Lightning will Strike next….

    Another contribution from my humble self:

    Just a thought, this looks very similar to Goop from Ben 10.

  30. madjack madjack says:

    Because it’s green? Aside from that I don’t see any similarities – maybe you should google Goop like I just did?! o_O

    See for yourself:
