Character Design Contest ♯42- Public Domain Amalgamations

This week, your task, should you choose to accept it, is to make an amalgamation of two characters in any of these public domain comic book company lists: http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Characters_by_company

Incase you don’t know what an Amalgamation is, here’s the definition:

Amalgamate: to mix or merge so as to make a combination

Your two characters must come from two different comics companies and must have amalgamated costumes, powers (unless the two characters have very similar powers) and names. Use the Amalgam comics characters as a guide if you are unsure what to do, but you can only use characters on these lists.

As per usual, there are no entry limits, the contest will close at 12am Sunday (blog time). Please read the rules before entering, 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.

  1. My combination of Frankenstein and The Patchwork Girl. In the novel, Frankenstein agrees to make a mate for his creation but changes his mind out of fear they might have offspring. Had he lived up to his word, this is what she might have looked like-

    http://i1331.photobucket.com/albums/w597/SeanWilkinson84/Re-makes/Timedrop23-Cat-Woman_zpsbc450026.png

    The Merrywether family was traveling through the jungles of Burma when bandits killed the mother, father, and sister. Young Linda was the only survivor. She was found and raised by a Tigress and gradually gained all the powers of the cat family. As an adult, she returned to the United States and began using her cat-like powers in her newfound career as an actress and stuntwoman. But beneath the glitz and glamour of Hollywood hid a city full of crime and evil. Linda Merriwether decided she would make a greater difference fighting crime as the costumed Cat-Woman.
    Among Cat-Woman’s cat-like powers are the ability to see in the dark, leap many times her length, and climb anything. She also has nine lives. She is watched over by the spirit of the tigress who raised her, and who brings Cat-Woman back to life if and when she is murdered. Cat-Woman also carries a silent-firing pistol called the Power Gun.

    The tigress spirit later inhabits the body of her sidekick, Cat-Girl, who assumes the identity of The Tigress when Cat-Woman dies for the ninth time.

  6. This is the last page before the ads in issue number one of “No-Jack Meets The Fedora Five!”

    Full Circle’s Spring Heeled Jack had a ‘demonic’ thin look with blue cloud breath and the ability to jump. Penthouse’s No-Man had a downloadable consciousness and disposable robot bodies. So Full House Comics, by Pentacle Productions, now has a hero named No-Jack who is a jumper that can download with–no . . . jack–to any electrical device, jump through the grid to his next body.

  8. Robert Morgan Gibson was preforming a chemical analysis on the Egyptian relic called The Amulet of Annihilation, when his lab was hit by lightning. The lightning strike caused the Amulet’s power to flow into him.

    http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Owl_Girl

    The Owl is really Jack Terry, freelance reporter, became the Owl after inheriting his murdered father’s secret laboratory located in the marsh at the edge of the city. His father, Professor Wayne Terry, had invented a gravity screen that powered a set of functioning wings. Mounted in the chest-plate of the harness is a “Darklight” that converts visible light into infrared rays, effectively creating a cone of darkness. His helmet includes infra-red goggles (so he can see in the “Darklight”) and a radio transceiver, and he has a robotic flying car that utilizes the same gravity screen that allows him flight. Using these devices and his professional connections to various information sources, he became the Owl and hunted down his father’s killers.

Randall was evicted from the property by the sheriff, and with nowhere else to go, he put on a mask to investigate Bishop, learning that he and his men were forcing all the ranchers in the region to sign their deeds over to him, because their property was rich in oil. Wearing the mask and riding his trusty horse Lightning, he took on the gang and brought them to justice. He stayed on his ranch and watched for any other signs of trouble so that Jim Randall might again become the Masked rider.
