Character Design Contest ♯122- Secret Identities

Alright guys, this week it's back to the more standard "Character" contest format. For this weeks challenge I want you to create a superhero. It's that simple.


Ok, it's not thaaaat simple. To make it more interesting, you also have to show the character's alter-ego, their secret identity, the Clark Kent to their Superman etc. and the two have to be incorporated into the same picture. Now there are many different ways you can do this, so I'll leave it up to you as to how, I just care that they are both in the same picture.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

    Kevin Conners

    Kevin Conners had just graduated high school and came out to his family, friends and highschool girlfriend, and moved to San Fransisco to start a new life.

    On the flight there, the plane was hit by a strange glowing meteor which smashed the wing and ripped a hole in the side of the plane sucking Kevin out to his death.
    But he didn’t die. He flew. He flew back to the plane, got under it and helped the plane land safely in the bay.

    On this first discovery of this power, his clothes didn’t hold up to the job of super heroing, so on his first day out, due to his speed to move so fast to be a blur and when he stopped it was evident, his clothes didn’t make it, it earned him the name The Streak!

    He soon learned he developed the power of Super Flight, capable of breaking the sound barrier, along with Super Strength, and Super Endurance.

    Always having been something of a showoff and a bit of an exhibitionist, and not having any tailor skills whatsoever and taking humor in the old trope of heroes running around in their underwear he put on a jock and boots adding white gloves to cover any fingerprints. He also donned a ski mask and goggles with a blond wig to hide his identity

    (ARRRGGG!! Internet Explorer crashed as I was trying to correct Kevin’s face from having a mouth over another mouth. GRRRRR! So I have to post as is, or recreate it. Since I need to be packing. Here is what I had)

    I know this concept is the generic theme for secret identity, but until I can figure out how to get what’s in my head on heromachine, this will have to do

    I give you, Damon Knight, AKA, The Marvelous Guardian Angel!

    Dang it Pixel you ripped off my idea and did it better

    Entry #2
    Benjamin Shore
    Nicknames: Ben, Benji, BJ

    aka Bluebird

    Always a happy kid, loved to wrestle since he was a kid, watched it on tv, he wrestled with his dad, neighborhood friends, and joined the wrestling team in school.

    Once in his mid teens he developed the mental powers of telekinetic flight, and broadcast empathy able to make people happy and joyful.

    being something of an artist, he designed a costume, and went to the local costume shop and put together his designed to save people in danger.

    my friend John said when was Bluebird going to join the Gay Lesbian Assossiation
    Ya know, he just might! 😀

  7. Outcast says:

    No offense cliff but what’s with the almost naked costumes it’s kind of inapporiate

  8. cliff says:

    Sprry, nothing is shown ya can’t see on tv, or advertisements. not really diff from females in bininis, White Witch, Power Girl, Scarlet Witch, some of Wonder Woman’s outfits.

  9. JR19759 says:

    @Outcast- I’d say something if I felt anyone had crossed the lines of decency. As far as I’m concerned, at the moment there is nothing inappropriate going on. If there was I’d have taken the entry down.

    Doctor by day, hero by night

  11. Outcast says:

    okay I understand

  12. cliff says:

    I am sorry I wasn’t more gracious earlier.
    I had JUST got home from dialysis and seen the post from Outcast about my entries.
    Now I’m somewhat refreshed after my nap.

    I’m also sorry anyone was offended.
    The Streak was meant to be funny not offensive.
    On looking at it afterwards, I can see why some might have taking issue with it and I apologize.
    Although I do stand beside it being common humor now like Chris Hemsworth “hanging around” in the new Vacation movie.

    And thanks JR. I will try to make sure any other brief clad characters have a less “prominent personality.” Although they will be sexy, I never plan on crossing any lines, hope to not even bump against them..

    I really don’t want to offend anyone.
    I like it too much here.

    On the left, mild mannered office worker Sara Irons. She has a cat and lives in a flat in Chicago. Her friends use the word ‘pleasant’ to describe her. On the right, the ferocious Blue Blade. Athletic, courageous and passionate, nothing can stand against her and her crackling energy sword. Her foes use the word ‘terrifying’ to describe her.

    Hey guys I found a music video about having a secret identity

    Evan Binnar aka Bi,

    When Evelyn Binnar was pregnant she and her husband Everett was sure she was going to have twins. However only the one son was born.
    Evan was born June 1st making him a Gemini.
    This seemed to plague him most of his life, always feeling inner conflict of opposing views on most everything.
    The Doctors diagnosed him as Bi-polar and gave him medications.
    He still felt conflicted though.
    It didn’t help that he keep having feeling for other guys, but liked girls too.
    After he graduated High school he kept having more and more in depth inner arguments with himself.
    He went to a hypno-therapist,
    After some sessions the shrink said he suffered from Multiple Personality Disorder, and kept treating him.
    One night his parents house caught on fire. His father had been in the basement looking for something and his mother was upstairs getting ready for bed. Torn between which to help first, he was literally torn apart into two distinct personailites, with their own looks and own opinions, one being straight and the other being gay.

    Evan has the power to split into two different personalitues.
    Kevin is the conservative straight personality
    Devin is the flamboyant gay personality

    My Entry: a superheroine from the American wild west

    This is Ms. Amanda Mitchell, a school teacher who turns into RODEO to fight crime. She whips and lassoes criminals but when things get really though, she has the super power to summon up buffalos to help her attack.

  17. Skoul says:

    I give you, after much stress trying to upload it to the forums, The Judge.

  18. kananga says:

    Teenager Carson Jones adopts the deadly vigilante persona of Synapse when he touched the alien implant in his brain. With enhanced strength and an alien shotgun he battles his extra-terrestrial creators as they cause chaos with their vicious agents of destruction, the Hoods.
    Hope this counts as the secret identity isn’t very large in the image.

  19. Hyperanthropos says:

    Atlas a.k.a. Lewis Winston

    For my entry on the contest I decided a variation that was inspired by Superman’s robot duplicates of the Silver Age. Here we see the superhero called Atlas and the duplicate of his mild-mannered alter ego Lewis Winston.
    (The edges got cut a little during the posting, sorry)

    I just realized that Supersonic’s chest got screwed up somehow…guess count that picture out because I have no idea what happened. If you wanna see a better pic of him…look at my forum page.

  23. Outcast says:
