Power User Profiles: Vengeance

I’ll be honest, I didn’t originally consider this week’s nominee when I first brought back the PUP’s on the basis that I thought he’d already done one. He’s got to have gone the longest between being nominated and actually getting to do a profile, having been nominated way back on the first ever PUP. Like all the best ‘machiners, he has an easily identifiable style that means you can tell whose work it is just by looking and his costume designs are always very well thought out and visually interesting. So, here you go Vengeance, this one is long over-due.

Online name used in HeroMachine environs: Vengeance

What is the secret origin of that name?: He is a character I made several years ago. He fights supernatural beings mostly

A photo (or drawing) of you in “real life”:

Ok guys, this will be the last PUP for a while, until I can think of other people to profile. If you’ve got any suggestions for people who are currently active that you’d like to see profiled or who you think deserve to be profiled, please feel free to give me a shout. I really enjoy this part of the blog and it’d be a shame to see it get retired (again).

  1. Congrats Vengeance. Like JR, your name never crossed my mind, but it still makes perfect sense to me for you to be a power user. Well done.

    As for future power users, how about Linea24?

  2. Finally! ;)

    Very prolific in the Forums. I like your “tri-color” style. Everything is complementary and no tone overwhelms the others. My favorite is Brown Moth. That helmet is really cool. The contours really bring out that tri-color and give her a sleek aerodynamic design.

  3. Vengeance, I knew there was something I liked about you. Legion fans have to stick together.

  4. Thanks guys I really consider this to be a honor

  5. Lightningsword

    This is VERY long overdue. Congrats!
    @ Myro: I agree, Linea24 would be good.

  6. Welcome, V. I thought you already were one.
