CDC #420 – Team Building – Volume 2 – Part 8

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 villain team’s computer genius Dark Web.

Celine Eastlake was recruited by the FBI at age 19 as a hacker in their cyber crimes division. This job took her to parts of the internet that she had only heard about. Dangerous people resided there, and the deals made there were horrific.

While researching The Lunatic Fringe’s latest attack, she came across sensitive banking information from around the globe tied to Dr. Epoch’s group, and promptly emptied the accounts into an FBI ghost account which she had previously set up.

Celine then ran a search for people looking for information online about The Fringe’s activities. It was here that she ran across the name Seth for the first time. A quick search revealed a young man with an intense superiority complex, and considerably more passion than intelligence. “Hmm…” she thought,“…fascinating"

She quickly transferred all the money from the ghost account into a new account set up for Seth. Celine then cracked open a beer, and called Seth to tell him what she had done. What he saw as a way to honour his work and vision, Celine saw as a way to live the life of which she had dreamed.

Dark Web is rarely in the field with the others, preferring to work from the compound, but when she does she wears a suit of dark purple and black, and a mask/helmet which allows her to access the internet through the movement of her eyes.

She and Pin Up quickly became best friends.

  1. Is it possible to have two entry’s, one of her at base and one in her field outlook but be counted for the same entry?

  3. So I have one of Celine in the compound on her super computer transfering things from a laptop she hacked. Where you can also see the “DarkWeb” costume hanging up in the background along with her other gadgets.

    And also here is her when she dawns the DarkWeb persona for field missions. Her web-helmet and suit allow for quick hacks on the run, and her friendship with Pin-Up has allowed her some useful training with a gun if ever the need arises.

  4. Celine Eastlake… aka Darkweb

    For her suit I went with black as the primary color, with purple as accents.

    Her mask has a heads up display in her visor, and her suit also allows her to control any nearby devices and mechanical equipment. And it is linked to her main computer at her compound.

    Her wrist cuffs contain various darts ranging from, smoke/gas, small explosives, to lethal poison.
    Her guns are costum, and are pride and joy, black market of course.

    She also has a small army of robotic cyber spiders she calls “crawlers”, they can assist her in recon, defence/offence and accessing remote places she might not be able to get to. They’re equipped with high def 360 degree vision, night vision, and thermal cameras that are linked to her visor. They also carry shock, and laser weapons.

  8. Here is my entry for Dark Web. Her chest piece contains the power supply and CPU for her helmet. When designing her costume, her good friend Pin Up suggested a “femme fatale” aesthetic, hence the thigh-high boots and opera-length gloves. The dart launcher is used to incapacitate anyone who stumbles upon her in the field. The darts contain VENOM (Very Effective Neurotoxin Of Mine). She hasn’t explained the acronym to the rest of the team because they would probably tease her for it.

  9. My take on Celine Eastlake, aka Dark Web

    https://imgur.com/BdqOVtz

    Her helmet/glasses accesses the Internet via a secure WiFi link called Spinarets. For weapons, she developed Modular Arsenal – Computer-driven Ready Operation (MACRO) gloves that can fitted with anything from wrist-mounted guns to mini computers to data access cables, as shown here, and more. Parts of her suit light up in different colours, depending on the function being performed, leading to her teammates jokingly referring to her as Neon Web. Sometimes the lights even reflect her mood.

    Celine sees herself as the Felicity Smoak of the Lunatic Fringe (She spends far too time watching Arrow!) capable of hacking anything and anyone. In her downtime, she likes to watch and read techno-thrillers, play console games and occasionally hack people for the fun of it, as well as watching TV, upgrading her suit and building devices.
