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 archer of the hero squad known as Daikyu
He is a native of Japan and adopted the moniker Daikyu; the Japanese word for his favourite tool – his longbow. Despite being 55 years of age, and planning his retirement from the police department, Daikyu was inspired to get into the superhero game as a means of continuing his work in law enforcement, after hearing The One speak at an Inter-galactic security symposium in Tokyo.

Just for clarity, is this far enough in the future or alt-reality that a native of Japan might not be pure human?
My “Daiku” submission this week. Since he is a native of Japan I wanted him to have a ninja look and be someone who strikes from the shadows instead of taking a head on approach given he is aged. Since he is a former cop I also wanted him to keep the black/blue color scheme with gold stars seen of police officers. Since he is lives in the near future he utilizes an advanced heads up display and wrist computer to access police records/databases and identify criminals to aid in his crime fighting.
Helmet placed at fee t so that you could see that he is an older man.
Challenge closed. Results posted shortly.
