CDC #369 – Team Building – Part 9

The premise of this contest is that over the next number of weeks we will build a team of superheroes and a team of villains. Each week I will supply you with a role, name, or list of powers of one of the team members and you will use HM3 to create the character. The winner each week will win a version of their character created on HM by yours truly.

Your challenge this week is to design the speedster member of the hero squad -  Virgilio Velasquez – aka Veloz. Despite being able to run at supersonic speeds, his greatest strength might be his agility and acrobatic skill. A native of Mexico City, he spent his early years among the ranks of the Lucha Libre but eventually left that life to find greater challenges. He soon became a parkour legend throughout Mexico and the southern states before Ages offered him a true challenge; joining he and his young team in their battle for justice.

  1. My take on Veloz: https://www.deviantart.com/art/Veloz-751352457
    Also, there was a luchador called Murciélago Velázquez (real name Jesús Velázquez Quintero). Just wondering if Virgilio’s surname was from that or if it’s just a coincidence.

    Xinmodic, clearly, Edna hasn’t had the talk with him, yet… {“No Capes, Darling!”} 😀
    RobM, I think I like yours the best (so far)! Small image, but great background, scenery, and special effects!
