CDC #365 – Team Building – Part 4

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 villainous Manx. Trained from childhood by the original master burglar The Manx, he or she took on the mantle following the death of the mentor. In addition to a utility belt loaded with gadgets perfected by the original Manx, this incarnation brings a useful and deadly addition to the arsenal: two sets of retractable claws; one crafted from Titanium and the other, a razor sharp diamond tipped set, both used with deadly precision.

Your challenge this week is to create the archer character on the hero squad. She is a former Olympic gold medalist in archery with a background and education in forensic science. She spent her post Olympic years working at the Dallas morgue where she saw the devastation that crime was causing in her home town. Hunting with her father as a young girl taught her to track almost anyone or anything. She is Ages’ right hand.
