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.
This week we move onto a unpredictable member of the villain squad - Baby Face Muldoon.
Orphaned as an infant on his home planet – Doon Mul – Saun Fre was raised by loving human parents on earth. His adoptive father, whom he adored, instilled his love of classic earth gangster movies in his young charge. After the death of his father in a freak accident, Saun took on the responsibility of supporting his adoptive mother in her grief. He soon learned that crime does in fact pay after hooking up with a gang of intergalactic pirates who wandered earth’s upper atmosphere robbing unsuspecting travellers. His life changed the day they quite by accident attacked Invidia’s ship. She quickly dispatched his associates, but spared Saun’s life. She was intrigued by the hideous little being dressed like James Cagney with an attitude to match. It was Invidia who gifted him “Tommy” – a laser weapon shaped just like a classic tommy gun that he cherishes.

My submission for “Baby Face Muldoon”.
Wanted to keep the obvious nod to mobsters. Also wanted to make sure this “hideous little being” still had a look that could garner the baby face nickname. All along I’ve imagined these characters being from the not too distant future, with many of these alien characters being from more technically advanced planets so their garb will incorporate that to different degrees.
My take on ol’ baby face.
With his gang in the atmosphere of earth he still has access to all his fav movies from his childhood, and is even able to acquire his own custom fitted suit as well. Being a ” hideous little thing” himself he likes to be the big boss, the top dog so to speak. And to make sure he is always “on top” he has had a personal -High Chair- made for him to make things easier for himself. Do to him believing he deserves it. And now that he is in cahoots with Indivia he now can afford everything he could ever wanted and his baby face hasn’t stopped smiling yet.
My entry for the week…
“Babyface,” as it happens, translates badly into common alien languages. To many spacefaring races, it can only mean ‘face that resembles fresh egg and egg-gel deposit without nesting material or evidence of hatching.’ Here, ‘Babyface MulDoon’ is charging Tommy.
I decided to take another shot at Babyface Muldoon. Here he is onboard his pirate ship over looking Earth with his 2nd in command Twett E-Burd. A small alien dragonesq pet he had as his “parrot” while he was a space pirate. He holds Tommy charging up a blast as he has fun just taking pot shots at earth. He mostly hits Oceans but he is cool with it as long as hits a sea animal. He still doesnt get how people say he looks like some.
Challenge closed. Results posted shortly.
