Caption Contest #119

Ok guys, time for another caption contest. This week, I want you guys to come up with the best possible caption for this:

Everyone can have a maximum of 3 entries, entries must be in by next Wednesday (June 6th) and All Entries Must Be PG-13

CDC #366 – Team Building – Part 5

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 hero team’s mystic character. A man of unknown origin, he also counsels the team, offering wisdom and spiritual guidance. (Think Dr, Fate crossed with Dr. Strange). His powers include flight, telekinesis, and the ability to transport himself to different timelines. He can also conjure “neuro-orbs”; small orbs that when broken emit a neuromuscular blocker that renders his opponent immobile, but completely aware, for a short period of time. He wears a helmet that protects him from Dr. Epoch’s neurological manipulations, a power he can pass onto his allies through touch.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.

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.
