Pop Quiz – To Be, Or Not To Be…A Hero Or A Villain?



On August 15th, 1057 - Macbeth, the King of Scotland, was killed by the son of King Duncan.

Your Pop Quiz challenge this time around is to choose one of Shakespeare’s classic characters and re-imagine them as a modern day superhero or villain. Add a brief (brief!) description of their powers, or let the image stand on its’ own.

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 16th.

    Tamora: Eccentric and powerful underworld crime boss. She uses her vast psionic abilities to manipulate others into doing her dirty work for her. As a result she has climbed to the top of the underworld crime families and become the self appointed Queen of Crime.

    @BLUNT OBJECT: Just to confirm…this is new…designed for this quiz? The reason I ask is that the file was given the name Screaming Mimi, while you list it as Tamora. Just want to make sure.

    Here is my take on Iago for the contest. He is a telepathic member of a superhero team. After being looked over for leader again when the old leader retired, he turned bitter and evil. He began to whisper words of jealousy into the new leader, Other. Other is an alien hero and the standard superman like type. The honest Iago hopes to drive Other mad or make him do something that would result in Iago’s rise to leadership.
