Some villains just don’t like to get their hands dirty, and none hate it more than the villainous mastermind Geppetto. Once a widely respected robotics engineer, the man who would become Geppetto was commissioned by the military to develop an army of machines that could replace their much less expendable human soldiers. However while he was a technical genius, Geppetto was also lacking severely in the sanity department, and was thrown into a high security prison when signs of his mental state (and plans to take over the world with the army they asked him to build) were discovered. Although the real Geppetto still sits in solitary confinement, he still somehow manages to command his robotic army to do his bidding from within his cell. However, very few people actually know this and everyone else is instead lead to believe that one of his disguised robots is Geppetto himself.
Anti-heroes walk a very fine line between brutal justice and flat out villainy, and every once in awhile these so-called heroes trip and fall onto the wrong side of that line. Thunderbird is one such case, once fighting to protect his homeland using a pair of large, electrified mechanical talons strapped to his arms. His methods gradually grew more and more extreme, until eventually even those he protected viewed him as a dangerous criminal. After joining the ranks of FIEND, IQ upgraded Thunderbird’s gauntlets with a pair of electrified energy wings that somehow allow him to fly despite being made of pure electric energy, a technology which IQ claims to be the only one to understand.
A mysterious entity whose origins are under constant speculation by the other members of FIEND and the world as a whole. Some believe she is some sort of angry god, others think she may be an alien from a race far superior to our own, and still others theorize that she may be a being crossed over from another plane of existence entirely. Whatever the case, the being known simply as Void is feared as one of the most powerful forces not just within FIEND, but in the entire world, able to bend the very fabric of reality to her will.
As an archaeologist searching some ancient Greek ruins, the villain now known as Medusa stumbled across a magical artifact known as “Medusa’s Mask”. After trying on the mask out of curiousity, she was transformed into the horrible beast you see now. The mask became locked onto her face, and being forced to live her life as a monstrous snake beast drove her to madness and eventually, villainy and joining the ranks of FIEND.
After a Halloween prank gone horribly wrong left her face covered in hideous scars and burns, Jackie was never the same. Constantly outcast by society due to her disfigurations, she quickly grew bitter and eventually struck back against society by donning her terrifying mask and causing havoc using a variety of improvised explosives hidden inside small plastic jack-o-lanterns.
I love Predator, and agree with JR19759 about the fins.
Maybe you should just consider placing the “flippers” on the same sides of the hands.
If you’re refering to the webbed fingers over his regular hands, the intent there was for them to look like gloves that completely surround his normal hands (Even though they’re already covered by another layer anyway). If you mean the elbow fins being on opposite sides of his arms, that was an error I didn’t notice until after finishing him, but I don’t usually save the .txt files of my characters, so I wasn’t able to fix that >.< I may eventually remake Predator with a standard pose to correct that though, as well as show any details of his costume that the dynamic posing doesn't show.
Gifted with the ability to shrink his entire body at will, Conscience employs a variety of manipulative mind games and psychological tricks in order to convince heroes to do his bidding, under the masquerade of a physical manifestation of that hero’s conscience (Hence the name). Although most veteran heroes have gotten wise to his trickery, he still manages to trick many less experienced superheroes into furthering FIEND’s villainous agendas.
Credit goes to AMS for the pose on this one.
Wearing a special suit that allows him to move at incredible speeds underwater as well as breath while submerged without needing a breathing apparatus, the Predator made a big name for himself as an eco-terrorist, causing chaos for anyone that might threaten the ocean. Over time he seems to have forgotten his motivations however, now working simply as a specialty mercenary that handles underwater operations targeting ships, submarines, or secret bases on the sea floor.
Figure I’ll take a crack at this, a few months late to the party.

I forgot to do the shield on its own and don’t think I could pull off the riding pose very well with that flying hell-horse thingy, but ah well.
Here’s a little something inspired by the anime “Black Lagoon”. Anyone who’s seen it shouldn’t have much trouble figuring out what characters she takes her inspiration from.
Little Cindy Slaughter
Within FIEND there are a few members who even the most ruthless villains regard as “too deranged”… Oddly enough, one of the most deranged is just a small child. “Little Cindy Slaughter” as she’s come to be called, was born right into the darkest depths of the criminal underground, raised to fight in a twisted blood sport. At a young age, her hands were surgically altered to have long retractable blades in the backs of her wrists, with which she was told to fight and murder other genetically altered children to entertain the sickest, most psychotic freaks. When authorities raided and shut down the twisted criminal organization that raised her, Cindy was the only child experiment still alive. Unfortunately, killing is all that poor Cindy knows, and she continues to murder with a childish glee under the command of FIEND… At least her victims are more than twice her size now.
And now, back to the villains from FIEND.
When FIEND needs to make demands, negotiations, or interrogations, this is the man they call. Formerly a spy for the American government, Ultimatum was born with a minor mutation that allowed him to instantly understand and speak any language he hears, including those not spoken on Earth. It was eventually discovered he was a double agent working for an unknown criminal organization that later on became a part of FIEND.
Also decided to update the look of an older character which happens to be a personal favourite of mine (As well as the protagonist of a novel I’m starting on soon) from the old UGO forums. So, here’s the new and improved Geek, along with the original two images for comparison.

Dang, this thread is just mindscrew central… Which is a good thing in my books.
Here’s a little something I whipped up back on the old forums, just as an experiment in creating an image that didn’t look at all like it was made in HM.
A sasquatch once forced into captivity who used his incredible, superhuman strength to break free. Finding that his kind had been completely wiped out by deforestation, he began to seek vengeance in the only way his primitive mind knew how: Smashing everything in sight. He was eventually recruited into FIEND and manipulated to focus is animalistic rage toward their enemies.
Despite his name, Pharoh was never at any point a ruler of ancient Egypt. However, he seems hell-bent on becoming the future ruler of modern day Egypt. He wields the “Golden Scarabs”, a set of mysterious artifacts that grant him a wide variety of supernatural powers.
Queen of Clubs
A talented acrobat of unknown origins, with a seemingly never ending lucky streak. The Queen of Clubs seems to have minor reality bending powers that allow her to tip any sort of odds in her favor.
