Snowstorm: I don’t have a civilian name for her yet (any suggestions), but I do have a backstory for her. She was also a college student (Captain Blaze’s best friend, in fact). She got her powers when, during a winter break, she visited her grandparents and, while outside, was fairly close to the crash site of an alien spaceship and was knocked out. When she regained consciousness, she had ice and snow related powers.
The boots of her costume have retractable ice-skate blades (not pictured). While she already had a mask, I realized that it was a pretty crappy one that wasn’t really hiding much, and thus went with face-wear designed to somewhat evoke ski/snowboard gear.
I’ve been really busy. I’ve had all seven done for some time now, but haven’t had time to post them.
Captain Blaze: Aiden Ignatius was an ordinary college student. One day, he was involved in an accident at the lab where his uncle, a chemist worked. This accident gave him fire related powers, as well as flight. He makes the most quips out of the team, and is a little reckless.
I added the mask because I realized that, being a college student, he needs to conceal his identity, even if I vastly prefer the mask-less design.
I know that the flames probably make a little mild shading a good idea, but I chose to forgo shading in order to better show off the bright colors of the costume.
Finally posting the new ones.
The Warrior is shrouded in mystery. He was a founding member of the original All-Stars, became immortal by drinking from the waters of an enchanted islands, and was a member of every incarnation of the team until the ’90s (more on the full team history later). Now runs a secret, international organization devoted to finding and offering assistance to individuals with super-human abilities, as well as to help superheroes better coordinate their activities and provide them with better tech. He helped the Electric Eel recruit the founding members of the current team. No more is known about him, except that he’s most likely 80-90 years old.

I know this is fairly similar to my last post, but, once again, I haven’t given up. Well, not exactly.
I’m rebooting my universe again. I’m redesigning all of my characters. There are two key reasons for this. First, most of my characters are stored on a computer that I don’t currently have a working charger for. Second, I lost track of continuity, something I will keep better track of in the reboot.
It’s been a while since I last posted, and it’s going to be a while before the next time I post. It’s not that I’m apathetic, I do care. There’s a few problems I’ve been having with this.
The first, obviously, is time. I’ve been quite busy, and I’ll continue to be busy for a very, very long time. This isn’t the biggest problem, since I have made several of these characters while busy (heck, I made the Protector in a few hours at a hotel while I was there for a competition.)
The second is writer’s block. I haven’t been having as many ideas, and I’ve also been forgetting many of the ideas I’ve had in the past.
The third is that I don’t have nearly enough villains, and, as mentioned previously, I am having a hard time coming up with concepts.
Fourth and finally is, quite simply, continuity. I have no clue what order the events I have described happened in, or what occurred in the gaps. The last two are the big ones, and the next time I post will probably be in an attempt to remedy one of them.
Mitosis Man: Due to a lab accident, Franklin Jones now has the ability to split himself into two men, identical to each other and to the original in every way, and those can also separate (they are often used as expendable foot soldiers. Also, the original Mitosis Man hasn’t technically existed since the first time he used his powers. There is, however, one who serves as the leader of the Mitosis Men clones until his death. Different ranks wear different uniforms. Gold is command, blue is officers, red is foot soldiers, and grey serve various non-combat functions.
In the future, those who are not killed will work as the staff aboard the space station which serves as the headquarters of the Intergalactic Alliance of Superheroes, an organization originally created by the Warrior (as the Alliance of Superheroes) to train and coordinate superheroes (there are many who operate independently for one reason or another). They also help superheroes who are low on funds. At the moment, the Alliance has yet to build their space station, and is still headed by the Warrior.
Note: I realize that, given that his name is Mitosis Man, the number in the picture should be an exponent of two. I simply wasn’t thinking at the time.
Gilbert Whitford is a master archer who, a couple years into Robin’s vigilante career, suddenly arrived on the scene as the vigilante “White Hand.” Other than his name, nothing is known about him (and the name could very possibly be an alias.) Enigmatic though he may be, he has been very helpful to Robin’s team.
Robin’s second recruit: Will Scarlet. Scarlet was just a common thief, trying to make a living. He volunteered to help Robin, who allowed him to join him reluctantly. He has since proved useful, as he is a master of knives and swords, having found several books on the subjects in a dumpster and practiced using various techniques with variously sized pieces of metal.
Same character under a new name to avoid copyright violation.
Issues with the link for the last one
For this week’s contest, Mister E. In addition to the listed abilities of flight, telekinesis, timeline-jumping, and neuro-orbs, the dragon on Mister E’s shirt is enchanted with the ability to spring to life. Its fire stuns rather than burning. Mister E’s helmet can fight off telepathic attacks, and also allows Mr. E to telepathically communicate. He can transmit the attack-resistance power to his teammates by touch, but not the other abilities (though he can use the helmet to open up a communication channel between two or more people, making communication during combat easier.
Doctor Cranium, the villain I created for this week’s CDC. In addition to those artificial powers listed in the prompt, his suit also allows him super strength, a machine gun, and a gun that fires plasma beams.
Oops. never put my user name on the Protector
Force of Nature: The combined form of all four brothers. Since the form is extremely powerful, dangerous, and difficult to maintain (and requires a level of group coordination, cooperation, and agreement they haven’t yet achieved in their current incarnation), the brothers rarely use it, but they are working on it.
This form can do more powerful versions anything the individual brothers, plus some things they cant (i.e., volcanoes).
