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 speedster of the hero team – the alien known only as Warp V.
Age: 17 in earth years
Planet of origin: unknown
Powers: Warp V can travel across land and fly through space at many times the speed of light.
Enter as often as you like!

My submission for “Warp V”. Wanted to convey the sense of super speed. Incorporated “V” symbols into his suit to play off his name. He’s young and having the time of his life being able to run so fast.
Here is my version of Warp V.
The hero known as “Warp V” was originally known as Siddar and was born on a planet whose dominant species could run incredibly fast. Speed was the basis of their social hierarchy. Unfortunately for young Siddar, he was born with horribly deformed legs and could not even walk. Eventually, he was able to construct a rolling apparatus that attached to his lower body and was operated by his legs. The shape of the apparatus, and its slow speed, caused the rest of the population to refer to him as “Snail.” His sad life changed when he found the propulsion system to a small starship in a junkyard and constructed a considerably improved apparatus. With training, he then became the fastest being on the planet. Society immediately took notice, but Siddar was disenchanted by their shallowness and left to lend his abilities to a greater purpose. He eventually encountered The One, and the choice to join with him was the easiest decision of Siddar’s life.
Here he is, blasting through the cosmos. The communicator on his arm keeps him in constant contact with The One.
My entry for this weeks contest…
WARP V (real name K’Vahl Dobrahn) was born prematurely when his mother was exposed to a freak cosmic event. Born without legs or hands, his face terribly deformed. His family worked tirelessly to make his life as full as possible, knowing that he could pass away at any time. At the age of 5 it was discovered that K’Vahl had a unique ability to control both movement and velocity in a small area around him. This ability allowed him to travel at tremendous speeds. His father (an engineer), built him a mobile framework that he could use for everyday life.
First one for Warp-V shows an alien of unknown race of warrior clans from a currently undocumented planet. Despite still living in a cavemen like state they have still due to their durability evolved and learned how to build technology. Ver’keer’wap grew tired of the same ol’d fighting at a young age and decided against fighting for no reason. With such “radical” ideas he was exiled from his clan at the age of 4. For years he traveled around his planet avoiding fights and finding materials to assist in him defending himself when he was forced to. Living to the high age of 15, something that hasn’t occurred on his planet due to constant infighting and clan wars. He began to notice his back was morphing into something new. Come age 17 he had learned of his new genetic mutation. Perhaps something all his planet can do, or perhaps something only he could do to being special he pondered both and realized the only way he could find out was to leave. So using his new “powers” that allow him to disperse from his back a seemingly unlimited power supply to propel him to extraordinary speed. Updating his armor to help maneuver he learned his species durability also allowed him to survive in space. He travels till he learns of a place infatuated with war. Almost to the sound of it to the extent of his own. Looking for answers on why such wars began through the universe he heads for the planet called Earth. The-One notices something coming towards earth at high speeds and goes to where he calculated it would land. There with the alien he brings out Madam Ambassoder to translate his speech. Listening to The-One he learned of why some wars begin and why all should end. And agreeing to use his abilities to stop Invidia he has finally found a reason to fight, and one he agrees with. They all also agree his birth given name was to hard for many of the team to pronounce so he is given a new name Warp-V
Here is my Warp V
Real name: Zoden Kurrix
Home planet: Amorra Prime
The Amorrians are a race that have evolved the ability to access a interdimensional energy (similar to the Speed force) that gives them unimaginable running speed. They live much longer than humans. Their lifespan is about the same as an Elf, about 500-700 years. Even though Zoden is in his early life, approximately 150, has harnessed and mastered this energy, giving him many times faster than light speed. He and The One are the best of friends.
Here’s my take on Warp V. I viewed him more as a flying speedster, the energy aura surrounding him allowing him to move at fast speeds and fly.
My Warp V can be seen running faster than light, with a streak of light following him, making a sort of speed-shadow as he slows down. The tendrils on his head act similar to antennas on insects, acting as his sensory organs in addition to his hands and ears. He can also see at different speeds, thus why his eyes are lit up. This means that he can view normal time slower than it really is while in and out of his superspeeding form. When flying through space, he doesn’t need an oxygen source, as the speed-energy forms a simple shield around his body. Other abilities include supersonic combat enhancements and running through solid objects.
Another take on Warp-V, belonging to a species of very intelligent long lengthy limbed and typically slow aliens. Warp-V however though he could get more done with his mind if he could move faster. So he conducted a serum that imbued him to activate new molecules in his body to let him move at incredible speeds. He could even activate the speed on his mind allowing him to think even faster than before, this made him quickly deduce he could expense the energy from his hands and feet to propel himself at even fast speeds than before. However he had no way to control his flight so he crafted himself a flight suit to wear to help with maneuverability and protecting his body from any potential crash related incidents. Once he got it down he set off to travel the universe and explore. After an Encounter where Invidia and her crew were attacking planets and was almost attacked himself. However his speed allowed him to escape, but he made sure to add some defensive weaponry incase he was ever caught in a position where he would need to fight. Shortly afterwards he meet THE ONE and join his cause, never wanting to see that horror he saw from Invidia ever again. He now works as the speedster and recon of the crew.
