CDC #455 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 12

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 the electrifying villain - Shock.

Real Name: Ryan Mitchell

Age:34

Planet of origin: Earth

Powers: Ryan originally teamed up with his twin brother while in his early twenties. Together they formed the crime fighting duo Shock and Awe. Unlike his twin brother (who can control light and create blinding displays) Shock can control and draw power from any electrical source and turn them into devastating impulse blasts. It is unknown what caused the rift between the two – although rumours abound – but what is certain is that Shock’s dedication to Invidia is intense and dangerous to anyone who attempts her harm.

Enter as often as you like!

    Hi Guys 🙂

    If any trouble with my post of the image, let me know. I did a bit of editing outside Heromachine.

  2. My version of Shock, he used to believe in being a hero with his brother, but now his loyalty is only to invidia, here I show Shock dawning his new costume and leaving his apartment, his life, and especially his brother. The messed up room, old outfit on the floor and the state of his Shock and Awe poster from his time working as a hero duo all in shambles. He now only does what is needed of him from invidia.

  3. Here is my entry

    SHOCK

    After leaving his old life and his brother behind, Ryan used his powers to get whatever he wanted. One day he ran into Invidia, and she saw the great potential that lay within him.
    She took him under her wing and trained him intensely, increasing his powers to breath taking destruction. Through experimentation, he now is a living electrical being. Able to not only absorb the electricity around him, but create his own.
    Now he is Invidia’s most loyal team member, and will destroy anyone in her way.

    Here is Shock:
    https://www.deviantart.com/keithprovostdesign/art/TartanPanda-Shocked-834416062?ga_submit_new=10%3A1584661075

    In the beginning, Ryan Mitchell discovered that he and his twin brother had superpowers. While his brother could control light and create blinding displays, Ryan noticed he could draw electricity from power sources and manipulate them into impulsive blasts.

    During high school, Ryan lost interest in studying. Once he was old enough he was going to be a superhero and didn’t want to waste his time in textbooks, but instead he needed to perfect his craft and prepare to rid the world of evil.

    After high school, the twin brothers joined the superhero circuit under the alter-egos: Shock and Awe! Ryan became Shock and proved that his hard work payed off, becoming one of the most recognized crime fighting duo. But fighting crime didn’t pay, and without money the necessities of life became too much.

    The twins began marketing themselves with merchandise. They began selling posters and mugs, they would hold autograph sessions and provided public appearances. The success of their enterprise caught the attention of business advertisers, and soon Shock and Awe made a contract with a manager promising to earn them more money than they could imagine; and he delivered on his promise. Soon the twins were living in their own mansion and adding tech (like high capacity batteries attached to Shock’s belt to offer him enormous amounts of electricity to draw from) and vehicles to their crime fighting arsenal.

    The world seemed to be going swimmingly for the pair, until the duo’s final battle together. Shock was building up energy for a mega blast while Awe was creating a bright light to disorientate their opponent. The light effected Shock’s vision, and without noticing he made a connection with a source of water and the surge resulting in his left arm blowing off.

    The incident left Shock in a coma and recovery for months. After recovery, Shock was greeted by both his twin brother and their marketing manager. He woke up with a charred stub where most of his left should was, and the concerns for his crime fighting career sank in. When he looked up for support from his brother, he instead saw Awe all the way in the corner, keeping the most distance he could from Shock. Their manager spoke up, announcing his concern for the future of Shock and Awe. He explained that the decision best for everyone was if Awe worked alone, and that Shock should consider his retirement. The real knife turner was that his new role was to be Awe’s assistant, since he already knew Awe’s secret identity.

    Shock became Awe’s assistant, but because of his obvious injury, he was not able to make an appearance in the public. Forced into the shadows and limited to assistant, Shock had a breakdown and demanded that Awe find another use for his role on the team. Awe replied that there was not a role for a one armed hero, and that the public wasn’t ready to support a handicapped crusader. Shock’s rage caused his absorption of the building’s electricity, and he let out an uncontrollable burst of energy, since he didn’t have his arm to direct the blast. Awe kicked him out of their home and asked that he never show his face again. Shock complied, but never looked back to see his twin brothers immediate regret for what occurred.

    Shock was training himself in solitude, among vacant city blocks and the dark alleys. He was able to still use his powers, but couldn’t direct his energy in a single direction. Invidia discovered Shock during one of his training, and promised him a solution. Invidia had the resources to create a device attached to his left shoulder. The device would allow him to create a pure electric appendage, allowing Shock to have both the silhouette and an actual working left arm. Along with the shoulder generator, he acquired a belt with the ability to redirect his energy to his boots, letting him create electric static flight.

    Shock saw hope in Invidia’s gesture, and he vowed to forever be in loyal service.

    My submission this week for “Shock”.
    I decided to try and figure out the rift that came between Ryan and his twin brother awe so I came up with the idea that Ryan’s twin brother was born with his superpowers, but Ryan had no superpowers at all other than a genius level intellect. This caused him to become overwhelming envious of his brother and his abilities. When Ryan was an adult he became a pioneer in electrical engineering, but his envy and hatred for his brother grew until one day he realized he could use his abilities too (genius IQ and background in electrical engineering) and craft a suit that would allow him to harness and manipulate electricity to his will and prove to his twin brother and anyone else that stood in his way that he was the superior. From that day forward he would be known as “Shock”.

  7. Here is my version of Shock:

    https://www.deviantart.com/palazzocdc/art/Palazzo-Shock-834507301

    I thought it would be fun to give him a helmet that looks like a plasma globe. He is seen here using his electricity draining powers to dispatch a robot sent after him.

    I hope you like it, djuby!

    Shock

    https://freethespam.files.wordpress.com/2020/03/atomicpunk-shock.png

    Electro-mutant Ryan Mitchell found that being a mercenary pays better than playing key-tar in the cover band Totally Excellent. His power to create impulse blasts requires a nearby power source. His suit is equipped with batteries, cells, and conductors.

    The key-tar also provides energy. Rather than drain the battery, the design charges the weapon when Ryan plays it. Though the suit is the main power source, the key-tar focuses Shock’s blasts for massive damage.

    Shock has a twin brother, Ray, whose code name is Awe. Awe has the ability to create photon flashes and bend light. Shock and Awe fought alongside each other for years – until the day that Ryan told Ray the truth. Awe is not Shock’s twin. Awe is an “echo” who came into existence when Shock’s power suit was being tested.

    Ray was devastated. All of the memories growing up inseparable from his brother were actually a mirror of Ryan’s. Which also explains why Ray is left-handed while Ryan is right-handed. Not satisfied being born of a “trans-dimensional rift,” Awe went out to discover who or what he really is.

    Shock felt nothing. He had used Awe as a distraction and human shield. Shock regards Awe as merely a weaker copy of himself. Ryan Mitchell is a narcissist and egomaniac. Traits that Invidia manipulates quite easily.

    It was Invidia who convinced Shock to end his partnership with Awe. She told Shock that she agreed that Awe is weak and a liability. In truth, she is monitoring Awe closely, waiting for him to discover the portal that brought him into existence.
