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 move onto the second in Command of the villain squad – the vicious Komodo
He is a native of the planet BelTAR Prime; a planet populated by human/reptile hybrids. Komodo is the mindless muscle of the team - or so Invidia believes -although he also carries a deadly mutation: retractable claws which can deliver a neurotoxin that renders his victims immobile before an inexplicably painful and prolonged death.

My “Komodo” submission. No fancy story or anything here, just tried to make something visually striking that embodies the characteristics mentioned.
Here is my version of Komodo:
Komodo first encountered Invidia after escaping from prison on his native BelTAR Prime. His initial reaction to being discovered was to attack, but a quick display of her powers showed that this was a fight he would not win. Seeing an opportunity to acquire a “muscle-bound goon,” she offered to help him escape the planet in exchange for his loyalty. Since that day, he has served her unfailingly. He continues to wear his chains as a reminder of what happens when one is foolish and gets caught.
My entry for this weeks CDC; KOMODO
He is a native of the planet BelTAR Prime; a planet populated by human/reptile hybrids. Komodo is the mindless muscle of the team – or so Invidia believes -although he also carries a deadly mutation: retractable claws which can deliver a neurotoxin that renders his victims immobile before an inexplicably painful and prolonged death.
After suffering a rare severe beating, Komodo donned his powered armor making him nigh indestructible (in his on mind at least)
Hi this is my first submission, here is my version of Komodo:
Renamed as komodo by invidia, his first name was Shurr Umak, he was a proud and confident leader of his tribe, until he was betrayed in battle, mutilating him without his tail and part of his arm, replaced by a bionic and extensible arm, which can inject the poison of his blood into his enemies, he never doubts his strength and his claws, but for those he believes worthy, he always carries three antidotes of his poison, all for the pleasure of a good fight. (very cliché, but it works).
Greetings from Valparaiso, Chile.
Made a few over this past week, lots of Ideas for this Character.
My first I had more of the mindless brute, a monstrous creature who towers over his enemies. To Make up for what he lacks in speed he makes up for with his hidden claw that comes out of his forearm to deal a neurotoxin to immobilize his enemies. Where he can either deal the finishing blow, or watch in delight as his victims slowly die in front of him.
2nd I made this design more towards the hidden agenda angle. While he does have massive strength, he is also a skilled fighter, and if someone so happens to give him a tough fight he will extend his claws and deliver his killing blow. He wears the symbol of the Oroboros an ancient deity of his people, and one that Invidia found facination by. While she sees it as Komodo beliving in his deity for the characteristic of being the biggest and baddest merely to end up killing himself. Komodo sees him as the inspiration to become all, to be everything and the only thing remaing.
Komodo 3 I wanted to show the partial human/reptilian hybridness where you can see the waging sides appear as skin pigmentation allowing a massive colorful abundance of appearances for him and his clan. However the color he loves most is red, the red that comes from the enemies he destroys. He has immense strength and size and while he can certainly rip his opponents apart with his bare hands, he prefers to use his battle axe to cut his ememys in two. And he uses his special mutation to coat his blade in the deadly neurotoxin so that way he can hear the screams of his enemies as he continues to kill.
Lastly I made one is big, fast, strong, and most of all deadly. He can slither around at alarming speeds despite his size and crush his enemies with his bare hands. Inside of which he is able to sprout out his “hidden fang” as he calls it, to end a fight. delivering a heavy dose of neurotoxins into his vicitms, he is also able to fling his toxins out in a wide spread area from the claw. And while such a small dose wont be enough to kill those touched by it, it will still casue their movements to slower.
