Character Design Contest ♯57- Old School: Energy Blaster

This week I want you guys to create an energy blaster type character. I want to see your characters using their powers, but apart from that you can go wild. Hero/ villain, Modern or Golden Age, doesn’t matter.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week, the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest 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. Does it have to be naturally occurring energy, or can we use something like Iron Man’s Repulsors?

  2. I’d prefer to keep it in the same sort of vein as the sort of powers people like Starfire, Havok and Cyclops have, as we did gadgeteers last week which is the category Iron Man style stuff would come under.

    BIO:
    Chen Yi is a kung-fu prodigy and holds black belts in several martial arts. If that wasn’t enough, she is able to draw electrical energy from any source and focus them into powerful force beams. She goes by the name Electric Kitty.

  4. My ideas aren’t flowing…:-(
    !

  5. Yesterday, Shelly Zapatos decided to join the superhero game!
    She built a suit to aid in sending the power her body makes through out her body. Look out world Zappa is in the house!

  6. Katar Sunaa, an ancient tribal warrior/mystic who can summon his spirit energy and launch it in projectile form (think Dragonball Z meets Mortal Kombat):

  7. Here’s my first (only? idk, time permitting) entry: Timedrop23-J’Kal
    J’Kal is an original member and commanding officer of the Bodak Corps, an intergalactic peace-keeping federation formed by the same alien race that created Black Marble’s bracelets. Since Black Marble’s transformation into Black Hole, the Bodak homeworld has become aware that her bracelets have stopped functioning normally, and sent J’Kal and his team to Earth to retrieve her. J’Kal and the other Corpsmen were selected for their inherent abilities (J’Kal’s Anubian race can sense danger and make their bodies and anything they are carrying with them intangible), but while wearing the Bodak Corps bracelets, they can also fly and use energy blasts/constructs in battle.

  8. Okay, here we go. I’m gonna start with my personal favorite:

    Levin: The living lightning Eli Levinson can generate raw electricity with an output of 1.21 Giga-Watt at up to 200,000 Ampere and is able to control and manipulate any source of electricity. He can charge devices with electricity, but also drain the energy from them into himself.

    And the rest:

    Ångström: Capable to generate, manipulate, and fire any kind of energy like i.e. different wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation, light, x-rays and many more.

    Apollon: The Olympian god of light with the energy and power of a thousand suns.

    Vivid: Can absorb light of different wavelenghts (natural/artificial/infrared/ultraviolet) and convert it amongst others into powerful energy blasts and/or solid light constructs.

    Voltage: Can generate electricity up to 10.000 volt and fire explosive energy blasts from any point of his body (preferebly his hands).

  9. Okay, I couldn’t resist to build something completely new for this contest (feels like an eternity that I created a new character)…

    Lord Mit’Nal of the Xibala: The Xi’bala are an alien species of ferocious warlords from an alternate (steampunk) universe where earth’s history took a change of course when an ancient nuclear-powered alien starship was discovered beneath stonehenge in 1886 and therefore the industrial revolution was altered.

  10. Oppenheimer: This energy wielding supervillian was the result of American experimentation on mutants during World War Two to try and perfect super powered super soldiers. Initially a low grade telepathic, his abilities were massively increased as a result of the experiments done on him, allowing him to drain the life force from opponents and re-emit it as explosive beams. After being deployed in Europe, the subject went rouge, his mind having been damaged by his experiences. He took the name Oppenheimer after declaring that unlike the scientist, he was truly death incarnate. He is here pictured escaping from a Russian research facility where he was being held, murdering all 200 staff and razing the building to the ground in the process
