    IMPERION

    Real Name: Unknown
    Age: Indeterminate
    Hometown: Unknown

    His body, for all intents and purposes, is an organic nuclear reactor.
    He utilizes the energy produced to toughen his body and generate strength to superhuman levels, fly at super-sonic speeds and emit atomic blasts capable of leveling a city.

    When getting ready to emit his most powerful blasts, the moisture in the air super heats to steam and energy radiates from his body in what looks like lightning

    My character for this week: Reactor!
    https://www.deviantart.com/nerd0and0proud/art/NerdandProud-Reactor-806924034

    Real name: David Marsden
    Age: 28
    Hometown: Jacksonville, Mississippi
    Superpowers: supersonic flight, super strength, can throw atomic blasts through his fists that can level a city
    Weaknesses: None. Fire, heat, and electricity only make him stronger.

    David Marsden was the owner of a failing small business. He needed money fast, or he would lose his store. Desperate, he applied to be a research subject for a technological study. He thought the study was a new drug, but it was actually a human experiment. When he arrived to sign up for the study, he was captured and brought into the lab. For what seemed like forever he remained strapped on a table, endlessly having needles and lasers shot into him. After weeks, the experiment concluded. The moment one of his restraints was loosened, he busted out of all of them, and crushed the equipment with his bare hands. He darted about the room, faster than light, knocking out the scientists one by one. He then clenched his fists, rose into the air, and released a blast so powerful, it destroyed the entire building. Days passed. David found that he was given the power to control atomic blasts, as well as super strength and flight. While he was being studied, his family had been killed by the scientists. David became Reactor, swearing to protect the world from people like this, and to make sure nobody endured what he did, ever again.

  4. Gabe Michaelson was a devote christian all his life. Now the world has supervillans and monsters with ungodly powers making his faith start to wain. It was then he was visited by and angel who tested him. And he passed. All he needs is to pray to his guardian angel and he will come down from the heavens and bestow the armor of the lord which imbues him with the powers of the archangels. Giving him super strength and speed, the ability to fly, and concentrate his energy into his hands and blast it out with devastating power. His only weakness is doubt. If his faith in his mission, or in himself for example waivers, his powers waiver as well and can potentially leave him entirely.

    (Note for the pic the scale of the character to the buildings isn’t 1:1 he doesn’t grow big or anyting just wanted to show how powerful his attack is without making him unsee-able in the picture.)

    Scott, I really love your character and its pose and colour scheme; they’re really dynamic. My only suggestion would be to lower the alpha on the blasts coming out of his hands, because they obscure the costume and make it hard to see

  6. I suck at coming up with names so…this is the best one I could come up with.

    NOVA

    Real name: Alex Weller

    Age: unknown (he can regenerate his cells so he’s been around a very long time)

    Hometown: undetermined

    Alex was born with the ability to create energy. At a young age he could start fires with his thermal touch, and create stunning light shows with his photonic powers.

    He kept his powers a secret, but little did he know he was being watched. A secret agency that exploits mutants has been monitoring him for years, waiting for him to come of age.

    One day after high school he was abducted, taken to a underground laboratory, and experimented on for months. Focusing on his energy producing powers, the agency altered his DNA so that he could also make atomic and nuclear energy as well. They were trying to make him into the perfect weapon.

    After months of brainwashing, and horrible experiments, his skin turned black, and his altered DNA gave them what they’ve been hoping for. They finally thought they had succeeded, but they had no idea of how strong Alex’s will was. They woefully underestimated him.

    Melting his restraints, he broke free…killing all the scientist, and destroying the entire compound.
    He roamed the world trying to cope with what he has become. Learning to control his new powers, and not wanting this to happen to anyone else, his mission is protect all humanity, mutants and humans alike.

    He is a biological thermonuclear furnace. He can emit pulses of radiation, not only nuclear, but also thermal, and photonic.
    He has supersonic flight, and can shoot atomic, thermal, and phononic blasts, and concentrated beams from his hands.
    He can also absorb massive amounts of energy/radiation to add to his attacks.
    When at full power he has the ability of subatomic manipulation, meaning he can manipulate the atomic bonds of atoms and use fission and fusion to either destroy, or create. He only can do this for a limited amount of time.

    Here’s my entry! His name is Ascendancy!

    I based him off of Idris Elba because I’ve always wanted him to be a badass main superhero. He, like Henry Cavill, looks like a superhero to me. So I made him one myself!

    He was a lot of fun to make, I took AM’s pose he created/posted and went from there!

    Hero Name: Resolution

    Real Name: Tony Basore

    Age: 66

    Hometown: Ponca City, Oklahoma

    Superpowers: supersonic flight, super strength, can throw atomic blasts through his fists that can level a city

    Weaknesses: Hopelessness.

    Many odd, strange and bizarre events have occurred throughout the life of retired US Navy sailor Tony Basore. Among the most significant are the following:

    During a cold evening shortly after the New Year in the late 1960s, Tony was strolling through downtown Ponca City late enough that all of the local store were closed… except one. A seemingly new shop with lights on and open sign in the window drew his attention. As he approached the store, he noticed only a single, glass case shelf was present with but a single item.

    Behind the counter, a elderly woman with youthful eyes welcomed him by name in an ageless voice. “Hello Tony. I have just what you need. Keep it with you.” She reached into the shelf and pulled out a neckless with a simple cross and handed it to him. Tony wordless took the cross then walked out of the store. By the time he got home, he couldn’t quite recall the location of the store. His attempts to find it again over the next few weeks yielded no results and he considered that it might have been a store closing instead of opening.

    Two years later, Tony was strolling through downtown Ponca in early January and saw the same store. As he approached, he saw a young woman with elderly eyes. Upon entering, she greeted him the same ageless voice. “Hello Tony, I have just what you need. Keep them with you and keep them together.” She handed him a a necklace with the emblem of Christopher, the patron saint of travelers. Once again, Tony wordlessly took the item and left. He knew in his bones, that it was the last time he would ever see that shop, but was untroubled by the thought.

    Some years later, during the ’70s while stationed in Virginia, and recently married to the love of his life, once named Donna Gregg, now Donna Basore, Tony had the most powerful and vivid dream of his life.

    Tony dreamed that he was living somewhere in California, with two young boys, who seemed entirely familiar to him. During a day when he was about to leave for a detachment to Canada, while getting ready to leave the shooting range, Tony noticed that his cross and necklace had had gone missing from his neck.

    While searching for the necklace pair, he was ordered to leave the range and report to the plane, which was ready to leave. Having already extended his time and that of his crew and run out of the extension time he’d requested, Tony reluctantly left the range with a sense of dread, which was confirmed when the plane hit heavy weather, went off course into uncharted territory and crashed, with himself as the lone survivor.

    After mending a broken leg and gathering supplies, Tony went into the frozen wild and found a nearby cave. Inside the cave, he found three skeletons, some furs and also some nordic spears and shields.

    Realizing the dire circumstances he was in, Tony made a resolution to himself. That he would survive as long as he had to, and would find a way back home. He would keep his mind and body intact. He would keep speaking out loud of his intentions every day, and make sure to be of a sound mind. Knowing that he was too far away from the base that the plane had overshot, he would spend as long as he could waiting for rescue and never giving up hope that someday, he would be found.

    Over the next ten years, he lived a cold, harsh life filled with hunting, building large fires and waiting in grim hope. When he waited in the cave, he would often feel the strange thought that he was dreaming, but that it was important to finish this dream. He felt some presence, some emotion that told him he would make it out of this dream and would be able to fix a grave mistake. This emotion also gave him the feeling that he would someday have to do something else, something, important far in the future.

    That hope was rewarded. After seemingly endless days of marking time, one of those days brought with it an airplane, which saw the smoke of his signal fires.

    The pilots who had been surveying the land, were rather shocked and perplex to land and be greeted by what looked like viking warrior from out of time, especially when he spoke to them in english and told his story.

    The story rode ahead of Tony. Down into California, to where his family had been living in their own state of waiting and hoping. Upon seeing his two sons grown into young men, he woke in a stark shock of awe. Living in Virginia, a sense of fading memory that would return when needed.

    Years later in the mid 1980s, a day came when Tony was getting ready for a detachment and his paired necklaces went missing. On this day, Tony refused to leave the range until he found those items, putting the departure back by over two hours. When the plane hit rough weather, it overshot the airfield, but was able to get out of the storm and turn around, with just enough fuel, though barely to make it to the base.

    Decades later, in the late 2010s, in his sixties, while being visited by his younger son, Tony had another dream. In this dream, the presence from the cave spoke to him. It told him that he was needed. That his time in the cave had prepared his mind and now it had need of that mind to be ready to battle a great danger, coming from the deep.

    The presence made an offer to Tony, of a body renewed from the ravages of age and strengthened beyond what most mortals can do. To be a champion.

    When Tony asked what the price would be, he was told that he must resolve to always be hopeful in the fight against darkness. To be a living resolution of hope for victory and for a better tomorrow, always, at all time to have a measure of hope, no matter how dark the day. That should he ever lose all hope his powers would be gone and so would a light against darkness.

    It also told him to be careful of his fist, and learn to punch only as hard as he ever needs to and no harder. That should he ever punch to hard, for the wrong reason, that he might break the world.

    When Tony accepted the offer, he awoke in a blue flash of light with a with a body renewed and a purpose embraced.

    [Author’s note: As may or may not already be obvious, this character is based on my dad. The opening part of the story regarding the necklaces and the decade long dream are, as fanciful as it may sound, based on actual events in my father’s life. The third dream in modern day is my own addition.]
