Pop Quiz – Twist!


On August 6th, 1960 Chubby Checker performed "The Twist" on American TV for the first time on "American Bandstand."

Your challenge this week is to design a hip dude or groovy chick superhero or villain inspired by the 1960s.

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 :,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).

This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, August 7th.

    Wait, so is it supposed to be any 60s-type things or just related to dance-y people?
