Character Design Challenge #312 – It’s All About You!

Yes you!

Your Character Design Challenge this week is to create an original superhero based on your own name using the Superhero Name Generator in the link below.

Simply visit the link, type in both your first and last name, select a gender (male, female or neutral), then generate the name.

http://superhero.namegeneratorfun.com/

There is no limit on number of entries this week. Please either copy and paste or screen cap your assigned character’s description and include it in your posted entry.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 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 warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever); Please follow the instructions below for naming your files.

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. 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).

This contest will close on Sunday, March 12th at 9:00am Eastern.

    Drat, I forgot to copy-paste the text, so all I have is the screen capture jpg! The funny thing about the text is that I often play speedsters (“Juggernaut” was my first, “Swashbuckler” a close second, “Captain Volt”, a young mutant who wasn’t very imaginative and called himself “Speedster”, and most recently “Supersonic”…)

    (I thought it would be pretty simple to get the right path,but I am not sure if this is right. It opens directly to the page the image is on, so I am guessing it must be, but just in case, I have any replies going to my email…)

    PS: Oh cool, I tried running the generator a couple of times and got the same result! Now I can include the text…

    Your superhero name is:
    The Hyper Master
    Your scientific research into a brand-new, highly experimental form of propulsion led you to test it on yourself. The test seemed to fail – but now, you find that it has given you amazing powers! Now, speed is no obstacle – but can you outrun the evil forces tracking you down?
    Super-Speed – Your abilities mean you can run at incredible speeds, and your increased reaction times mean you can dodge bullets!
    Now, you protect Bangkok from serial killers, while also battling the evil plans of The Man from Elsewhere!

  3. Rekulhs Nathe

    Your superhero name is:
    Uber Boy
    An accident in a laboratory resulted in you gaining amazing skills and strengths – but also means that a secret government organisation is out to kill you! You must keep your identity hidden, whilst also using your powers for good!
    Super-Strength – Your powers mean you’re now the strongest person alive, able to hurl cars at fleeing bad guys, knock over buildings with your bare hands, and accidentally wrench doors off their hinges at every opportunity.
    Now, you protect Lyme Regis, England from bicycle thieves, while also battling the evil plans of Killer Kane!

    Doppelganger – You have the ability to generate up to six identical copies of yourself enabling you to accomplish tasks faster and bewilder your opponents!
