CDC #373 – Team Building – Part 13 – Prize for Brons

Love a rainy day of Machining. The original by Brons...

My take...

Congrats again!

CDC #373 – Team Building – Part 13

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 7th and final member of the hero squad. The only guidance I will give you is that she is recognized as the most powerful group member, and has ties to ancient mythology. The rest is up to your creativity and imagination. As a reminder the other squad members are Ages, Bluejay, Magus, Stormwing, Veloz and Uriah. Be sure to check out the costume colours of the past winners before deciding on the colours for your entry.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.
