CDC #396 – Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match.

Pictured above is Stench, a villain I designed for a CDC eons ago. Stench started life as unpopular Toronto high school student Nathan Cooper, nicknamed Stench. due to his affinity for stink bombs. Ten years, and a chemistry degree later, he is now an expert in toxic gases which he uses with deadly results.

Your CDC challenge this week is to design a hero that will become Stench’s arch rival.

The winner will receive a HM3 rendering of their winning entry by yours truly.

    The Neutralizer….

    Equipped with a protective bio mech suit, and neutralizing agents, which he expells through his arm nozzles, Adam Westbrook protects the citizens of Maratek city.

    His weapons include carbon fiber and titanium batons, because he doesn’t believe in using guns. In his utility belt he keeps his stun grenades, throwing knives, and various viles of anti toxin to aid anyone infected with Stench’s deadly gases.

    Courtney Dans attended the same high school as Nathan Cooper and was one of the mean girls. Some time after high school she lost her entire family in a terrific storm where only she survived. It was then she discovered her wind manipulation powers. She decided to use her powers for good and became F5. A popular hero, she’s always willing to pose with her fans, known as “Fivers”. Courtney has a terrible gag reflex when it comes to bad smells and has been known to get distracted because of this in a fight.

    Harper Rhodes was an excellent cop who became paralyzed from the waist down after being shot in the back. He was an excellent cop and had the record of most high priority criminals caught. His name within the criminal underworld was the Enforcer since he was such a force to be feared as a criminal. He is excellent in self defense combat as well many different forms of hand to hand combat. Rhodes is also a master in firearm usage to the point where people believe it is almost supernatural talent. Along with these gifts, Rhodes is a master strategist and always had an extraordinary sense of observation along with superior spatial and situational awareness. As glorious as Rhodes sounds, he was a bit of a lone wolf and a man of a few words with anger issues due to the rise of how bad criminals have become.

    After chasing down a drug KingPin, he was ambushed by thugs protecting the drug lord. While he took a beating, he managed to defeat a majority of his enemies only to be put down like a raging wounded animal with a bullet to the back.

    However, as he was punished for his lone wolf tactics and left bitter for vengeance, his desire for revenge was heard. A secret program offered him a chance at his call for blood. His spine was infused with an exoskeletal suit which was then placed in a high tech suit of armor. His armor and suit allow him near super human strength, speed, durability, awareness, healing, and precision. His suit is able to download the surroundings and signal to his brain the best course of action and almost takes control of his body. He became the Enforcer, the 8th amendment assassin, the judge, jury, and executioner. He became a law enforcement machine…a one man army. However, will he lose his humanity in the pursuit of blood and justice? He has to constantly battle against his anger and remember what separates him from hero and villain.
