My entry this week: Captain Rushmore!
George Theodore Jefferson was an average security guard at the Smithsonian Museum. One night he was on duty when he caught a man in a black hooded robe trying to steal an amulet. As he tried to take it away from him, the amulet fell to the ground, shattering and releasing a strange energy. He felt strange, as if his soul was leaving his body, and passed out only to wake up and see himself trapped into a nearby statue of Abraham Lincoln!
With his new stone body, George gained super strenght, super resilience and immunity to pain, hunger, cold and heat. He decided to retire from his job as a security guard and became Captain Rushmore, the Stone Patriot!
Real Name: Dominic Freeman
1. Enhanced Strength
3. Dog Companion named Brave
4: Copy Powers (via touch but, if he uses those for too long he mentally becomes that person)
Once a police officer he was chasing after a criminal, their chase ended up in a building which the criminal set on fire, Dominic stayed behind in order to evacuate civilians, but in the process was nearly killed. He received horrible burns, that’s when a doctor injected him with experimental stem cells that gave him his powers and healed his skin. After getting out of the hospital he was fired from the police force due to his reckless actions. Still wanting to do good in his community he forged a shield and costume becoming Freedom. During his first mission, he helped rescue animals that were illegal being experimented on and adopted a dog named Brave that was once used by the military. Together the two fight crime for all of America.
Real Name: Liberty Sams
Origin: A military soldier she was on a mission when one of her squad members betrayed the team nearly killing all of them, she barely survived but was picked up by the government only to have them turn her into a cyborg weapon.
Powers/Weapons: Cybernetic body, Missile launchers, Super-strength and speed and durability, Plasma torch, Shield
BIO: AP has the superhuman ability to inspire hope, especially in the darkest of times. With the Flames of Liberty, she increases other heroes abilities ten-fold and is empowered by the American Spirit. She is wise beyond her years and is a leader among leaders. Also, has great strength and a fantastic singing voice.
I’m not entirely sure what to name my character, so he is going to be called Veteran. This is a version of him I made sometime ago, as in, a couple years ago. I believe this piece also resides within my gallery.
For my entry this week, I decided to modernize him a tad bit. Here is an up close version of him, since my entry will have him slightly at a distance and I want to share my hard work on him.
Now for my entry piece
Thank you for viewing!
