Pop Quiz – Random


Your Pop Quiz challenge this time around is to visit the Superhero Name Generator in the link below, and have it generate a random name of neutral gender and create a kick @$$ hero or villain based on the result.

Be sure to either copy the link to your character name, or screen cap the result, and add it to your post so we can see the name and bio you were given. Entries without the link or screen cap will be disqualified.

Just a warning: some of the random names are pretty…out there.

I encourage everyone to use the first random result they get, and while I cannot control your minds…yet…that just adds to the challenge.

There is no prize. There is no poll. The winner is chosen by me.

You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine forums,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image(like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.

This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, August 23rd.

Happy Birthday Kaldath

Today marks the birthday of our head moderator Kaldath, so I thought it would be a good idea for us all to take a moment out to thank Kaldath for all he does for the Heromachine community and wish him a Happy Birthday. He’s taking a week off for personal reasons, so hopefully we can all make him feel better.

So hope you have a great birthday dude. Thanks for keeping us lot in line.

Taking the week off

I am having some personal issues this week and won’t be around The sight. Sorry for the inconvience, but I am majorly out of sorts thisweek.

Hello, Guys and Gals of the HeroMachine community!


I am writing today to let you all know that I am looking for people who may be interested in writing articles for the HeroMachine blog! As of late I have noticed that I am having difficulty getting my post out on time and that I have been letting the bulk of the writing duties to JR which I believe is a bit unfair. I personally can not commit to any additional writing time at the moment and so I turn to you the community for some help. If any of you are interested in taking up the keyboard for HeroMachine drop me an email at and we can discuss it.

Caption Contest Judging Delayed Due to Bad Week!!!

Sorry Folks, I’ve had a really bad week this week. A faulty memory, on top of  a mild case of heat exhaustion, on top of unexpected power outage Equals me having  completely forgotten about the caption contest until now. I will get the results up as soon as I can. Hopefully I will have time tomorrow morning when I get home from work.

Doctor Who Series 9 Yay & Nay

So, the first preview of the up coming series 9 of Doctor Who has been unveiled, so therefore I must give my opinions on what I want to see or do not want to see in the up coming series, as I did last year. Only this year, I’ve only got 3 points each instead of 5, because we’ve had a series to get used to how the new style of the show is, so therefore less to really talk about. Enjoy.
