CDC #458 – Team Building – Volume 3 – Part 15

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.

Your challenge this week is to come up with a team logo and team name for both groups. Both the name and logo should relate in some way to each group’s intergalactic makeup.

There will be two winners announced, and each winner will be immortalized by yours truly as the 8th and final members of each team.

Just to refresh your memories the teams are...


The One                             Seeker                               Mme. Ambassadour

Dailyu                                         Warp V

Halo                                      Awe


Invidia                               Komodo                              Mirage

Baby Face                                            Sunspot

Shock                                 Phaedra

Enter as often as you like!

    For my villain team logo, I wanted to try and capture the color scheme of Invidia’s design as best I could. The runes are meant to translate to each of the members’ names. I called the team Tenebrae, which is a Latin word meaning the quality of being dark or shadowy.

    For my hero team logo, I tried my best to include something that represented each of the members of the team, be it an actual item, or just a color. I was able to get one item for each member except Warp V, so I just added some gray to make it have more dimension (since his scheme is gray). I called them the Knights of Radiance since they are combating the darkness that is the villain team, and they are knights because they wish to protect all that are innocent and worthy of being protected.

    Villain Team: BLACK HOLE

    I feel that this speaks to the darkness of Invidia’s heart and how she feels that none shall escape her wrath.

    I have just recently joined this site, so this is my first post on this blog.

    I decided to name the hero group Saving Glory because they obviously save people in a glorious fashion due to all the powers they have. I came up with seven symbols that I thought were perfect for our seven heroes. Enjoy!

    The villain crew members fit together so intricately that it makes me think that Invidia picked them out for a certain reason and that she has all of them completely under her control one way or another. So, I decided that this particular villain crew should be called Invidia’s.
    In the Invidias insignia, I tried to get all of the characters an individual sign. I had a hard time doing this in just one insignia, so I made it sort of like a poster board. I tried my best to show Invida’s dominance over the crew.
