CDC #453 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 10

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 female known as Sunspot of the villain team.

Age: unknown

Planet of origin: Moltonia – a small planet which orbits a distant sun believed to be uninhabited

Appearance: Sunspot is best described as living lava. Her skin is mostly charred and black, but tiny cracks reveal a molten centre.

Powers: Can generate and propel balls of fire and lava; heat vision; fire breathing; flight.

Enter as often as you like!

    My submission this week for “SunSpot”. Had a lot of playing playing with this one trying to give the appearance of molten lava seeping through the hardened cracks in her skin and giving her fiery hair. Her mode of flying is a little more traditional with the wings. Since she is from an unknown region of space that closely orbits a sun I still wanted an alien-like appearance to her.

    Age: unknown

    Planet of origin: Moltonia – a small planet which orbits a distant sun believed to be uninhabited

    Sunspot (Real name: Ka’Renarde Sylistra), was banished from her home world for violent and unpredictable behavior. Sentenced to drift thru space for eternity in stasis. Invidia found her drifting thru the asteroid field between Mars and Jupiter. Upon her revival and a heated ‘discussion’ Sunspot agreed to join Invidia in her conquest of Earth.
    Sunspot is best described as living lava. Her skin is mostly charred and black, but tiny cracks reveal a molten center.

    Powers: She can generate and propel balls of fire and lava. She has heat vision can breath fire, and is capable of short bursts of flight by blasting super-heated air from her hand and/or feet.

    I did 2 versions of Sunspot

    1st. I made it as if Sunspot is the sole living “thing” on this planet, she is made of pure lava and filled with rage. She spends her endless days just flying around unleashing her powers over and over. Invidia found this creature and decided to use her as a living weapon of mass destruction. Dropping her like a bomb on a target and watch from on high as she burns away all in invidias path.

    My 2nd one I also went on the concept of her being the only living thing on the planet. However instead of evolving into a monster I went with a more elegant approach. Living in solitude for thousands if not more years Sunspot went through every form of emotion. However unfortunately it was only the negative ones. Loneliness, sadness, anger, hate, envy, vanity ect. Eventually tho she came to just become numb. As she sat alone she eventually started to work and master her powers and spread her essence into all of the molten planet. She can change and maneuver her body and that of any lava she puts some of her essence into to. Making herself the lone queen of fire. Ividia finds her and they form a sort of respect for one another and almost becoming somewhat of friends.

    My take on Sunspot:
    It was made clear soon after Sunspot’s arrival on Earth that she was indeed from another planet, one known as Moltonia – a small fiery planet that orbits a distant sun. Before Sunspot, this planet was thought to be uninhabited thanks to its volcanic nature. Her armor and mask are made out of an alien metal known as Magnorite. This metal is found exclusively on Moltonia, and in its liquid form. After it cools and hardens, Magnorite is nearly impervious to heat and energy unless taken back to the core of Moltonia. This makes the metal the perfect substance for Sunspot, as her own body and powers will not damage it. Her body is best described as living lava, and it sometimes does not take a concrete form. The rock-like substance that makes up her “skin” tends to shift with the molten core of her body, so the armor is helpful in holding her in one shape while she wishes to be that way. It is unclear whether Sunspot is a living creature, or simply lava that was given life. Whatever the case, she is a force to be reckoned with, and terribly relentless in battle.

  5. Sunspot:


    Scientists collected what they thought was a geological sample from the planet Moltonia. What they did not know was they had ripped part the planet’s hive mind from the surface. Torn from the comfort and safety of its home, the now singular entity of living lava escaped the research lab on earth. Its true form is less than a liter of a mercurial substance.

    In order to survive and grow in strength, it takes possession of humans. Using their bodies as a vessel, the creature has mobility. However, the host body deteriorates at varying rates. The Moltonian prefers females as their bodies are able to endure the process longer than males.

    Calling itself Sunspot as a reminder of its isolation from its homeworld, the Moltonian seeks revenge on humans for it can never return to the Living Sea. It also seeks a permanent host body. Both of which it believes it will find in Invidia.

    Sunspot is still in a weakened state. It does not have the power to overcome Invidia. Sunspot joined forces with Invidia to become stronger and exact revenge. Invidia is aware of Sunspot’s treacherous goal. Which is why she carries a concealed containment grenade at all times.

    Here is my version of Sunspot

    A molten lava core glows through the cracks of her scorched, blackened rock like skin. Flames dance and crackle as the screams of her enemies sound like music to her ears. Fireballs, and molten rock fly from her hands, as she soars through the air, laughing with joy. Metallic symbiotic armor covers her essential areas, but can change shape at her will to cover her entire body, and is resistant to her intense heat. She breathes fire, has heat vision, and can absorb the thermal energy from ppl and can expel deadly radiation like a solar flare.

    Here is my first ever entry!

    Sunspot comes from the molten section of Moltonia! Her soul sits inside a body of lava that maintains a humanoid appearance (her attempt to appear more Earthling) with the assistance of her lava rock skin. Her wings are capable of gliding with the assistance of warm air rising, and her sense for thermal detection can help her find even the slightest warm air currents, even on a planet like Earth.

    While on the attack, the crust molts off her hands to reveal the lava inside, which can be hurled like fireballs at her opponents. She is able to force hot air from her eye sockets to create pressurized heat streams to create heat vision.

    After intense battles that involve frequent use of her powers, Sunspot needs to seek refuge among either one of Earth’s active volcanos or by returning to Moltonia.
