Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo Regina 2019

Hey everyone! I know I said I was going to do an Endgame review but I honestly tried for the last few days before we left for our last dance competition of the season (not me dancing, luckily for everyone involved). It just hasn’t been happening. It’s impossible to talk about without spoilers, really. So, to sum up that real quick: it’s emotional as heck. You will cry, a lot, especially if you’ve been there from the beginning. It looks stunning, and the final big climax is just phenomenal. Go see it. There, that’s about as much review as I can do, and want to do because I think you should really go into this knowing nothing.

So let’s bring it around to talking about our first con trip! I’ve gone through all our pictures (there were quite a lot) and have hopefully chosen some really good ones to share as we talk about our day at con. Warning: image heavy.

CDC #413 – Team Building – Volume 2 – Part 1

Just over a year has passed since we started the original Team Building series which resulted in the creation of a team of heroes named The New Samaritans and a team of villains named Lunatic Fringe

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 and name the anchor hero of our team. She is of Native American heritage and was given the power of flight by the eagle, the gift of super strength from the buffalo, and infrared vision (allowing her to track people by their heat signature) from the rattlesnake. A highly respected Shaman, her greatest asset in leading her team may be her ability to reason and bring people of different backgrounds together.  She is of indeterminate age
