CDC #444 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 1

Let’s kick off the New Year with Volume 3 of team building.

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 start off with the hero team alpha. Known only as THE ONE he is gifted with the power of flight, superhuman strength, and is a master of telekinesis.

His background is a mystery, as is his planet of origin.

Enter as often as you like!
