CDC #444 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 1

Let’s kick off the New Year with Volume 3 of team building.

The premise of this contest is that over the next number of weeks we will build a team of superheroes and a team of villains. Each week I will supply you with a role, name, or list of powers of one of the team members and you will use HM3 to create the character.

The winner each week will win a version of their character created on HM by yours truly.

This week we start off with the hero team alpha. Known only as THE ONE he is gifted with the power of flight, superhuman strength, and is a master of telekinesis.

His background is a mystery, as is his planet of origin.

Enter as often as you like!

    In the far future a race of techno organic beings came to be, they seek only to add all machine and organic life into their fold. The last surviving species banded together to fight them off and save the Galaxy. A human scientist came up with an idea of making their own techno organic being. Mixed with the dna and technology of the few remaining species Alpha was born. As he grew so did his powers, years would pass and as he learned and studied the history of his people and the evil creatures that would soon come to end them all. He found what none had noticed that the beings place of origin was infact on earth. But when and why and how were still a mystery. With the remaining scientist and Alphas high processing brain functions they developed a time machine. However no living organism would be able to survive the trip through space and time. None except for Alpha. Being given the task to go and stop the end of the universe he accepted the role as the one last chance for life. He thus took on the Mantle of THE ONE.

    The One:
    Not much is known about The One’s identity or origin. He first appeared during a devastating fire. An apartment building had been accidentally set ablaze after a stove malfunction. The firefighters weren’t able to find everyone, and some people were trapped under heavy debris. The One came to the rescue, of course he wasn’t a hero but rather just a boy trying to help. He used his telekinesis to lift the debris and assist the civilians in escaping the fire. He also lifted a mother and her child and flew them out of the building to safety just before the remainders of the building collapsed. After he brought the people to paramedics, the boy disappeared. A week later he appeared again, saving families from a bank robbery. It was then that he was dubbed “The One” by the media, and a few days later he publicly accepted the name and became the city’s protector.

    THE ONE:

    Known only as THE ONE he is gifted with the power of flight, superhuman strength, and is a master of telekinesis. The gold outline is a telekinetic shield he generates around himself for protection.

    His background is a mystery, as is his planet of origin.

    The One : this superhuman hero from unknown origins stands a towering 7 feet tall, his overwhelming presence is often times enough for his opponents to give up, and should he really be challenged by anyone foolish enough he is willing to show him the full array of his might

    My take. Kind of a riff on Youknowwho.
    Do I have to write a bio as well?
