So I uh… made a thing! My own take on JR’s Pride superteam. Hope this is cool. Happy 3000th post.July 13, 2015 at 1:01 am #126473
You know what I’ve just realised looking at this. I don’t have a pan-sexual team member. Might have to amend that at some point. So that would take Pink off the spectrum, so that just leaves orange….July 19, 2015 at 12:25 pm #126750
Interpreting AMS’s villains (Seismic, Madame Payne, Alpha, Lady Dragon, and Styx):August 15, 2015 at 9:35 pm #127814
Here’s some remakes, because I am a bitter sad man who can never be happy with anything:
LEGACY: Failed attempt at cloning the super-heroine Pinnacle, founder of the Saviors. He was underdeveloped and while enjoying many of Pinnacle’s titanic abilities, his body cannot cope with them. Pinnacle recruited the help of her fellow Savior, Almanac, who created a series of specialized braces that allow him to uses his powers safely.
GRAFTS: He was abducted and experimented on by a race of violent aliens, but rescued halfway through the process of conversion into a mindless war-drone. His legs and arms were replaced with high-powered prosthetics that give him a range of post-human abilities.
BLACKOUT: An anarchist cyber-activist. Blackout is a technopath able to telepathically interact with and manipulate machines and information streams. Nobody knows her true identity or in fact has ever seen her face. She remain sealed within her self-sustaining armor at all times.

QUETZAL: Not quite human Meso-american immortal, discovered in a Mayan pyramid that had been sealed for centuries. Besides the obvious razor-sharp talons and radiant wings of solid light, Quetzal enjoys agelessness and a healing factor that stitches her back together from even the most gruesome wounds.
YAGUAR: Quetzal’s fiercely protective twin brother. His golden-alloy mask and clawed gauntlets are permanently fused to his body, good thing he also has the ageless immortality/healing factor thing going on, negating his need for mortal sustenance.
SABLE: A gender-fluid intersex individual from a long forgotten mystic race. Sable was cast out from their society for being exposed to a force known as the Void of All Sorrows. In the intervening ages since they have developed into a powerful sorcerer in their own right able to wield the abilities of precognition, telekinesis, and energy manipulation among others.

Nice work. This inspires me to do some more Machining.August 22, 2015 at 12:26 pm #128091
A belated thanks to you, dblade!
A few entries for the Modern God contest. Three guess which pantheon I chose (incidentally it’s also the three deities I have tattoos of). 😉
COATLICUE – Teteo Inan, the Mother and Destroyer, patroness of women who die in childbirth. Coatlicue is the matriarch of a small community of Nuevo Teotihuacan, running the town with her children. She is a warm and nurturing person, but if you threaten her family she can shift into an earth-shattering destroyer in an instant. She also functions as the town’s midwife, assisting in most births, the heart around her neck supposedly a mystic source of protection for all mothers who pray to her.
XOCHIPILLI – The Prince of Flowers and the patron deity of homosexuals, male prostitutes, creativity, music and art, Xochipilli runs the only bar in town, where all are welcome to fulfill their desires free of judgement. His presence exudes an aura of euphoria that washes over those near him, removing inhibitions and altering consciousnesses. This aura also vibrates the air around him in undulating melodies and rhythms, making him both the proprietor and sound system of the establishment. He is found most nights levitating in the center of his bar, in unmoving entheogenic meditation, exuding music and ecstasy from every pore.
QUETZALCOATL & XOLOTL – The town’s law and his mother’s enforcer, Quetzalcoatl is the resident superhero of Teotihuacan. He leads the towns other protectors (his brothers: Tlaloc, Huitzilopochtli, Tezcatlipoca) and keeps its residents safe. As the patron of the wind he flits through the town faster than the eye can follow, flying at supersonic speeds, and as the patron of learning and knowledge there is no mystery he cannot unravel. What unsolved cases arise in New Teotihuacan are quickly resolved once he becomes involved. He travels with his brother Xolotl, the great coyote and friend of death, who can track the scent of death to guilty parties.

Hi, everybody! It’s been…. a little while. Real life has been butting in way too much, but I had time to make a few little ideas.
I went for a Latin American kind of vibe, characters from different countries, without necessarily being living flags.
Name: Monica Vallejo
Gender: Cisgender Woman
Bio: A world famous superheroine who gained her powers after being hit with a mysterious ray of cosmic light during a hike through the Andes. Monica is the premiere posthuman of Buenos Aires and a beloved celebrity. Her dazzling photonic abilities lend themselves to this squeaky clean image. But, Monica hides a dark secret. Once a year her powers begin to wane, and to maintain them at their peak, Monica has to absorb the life-force from an individual, siphon their “light” into her own. Her chosen targets have been rapists, murderers, the kind of people she can justify snuffing out, but this past year, one person has not been enough to sustain her…
Powers: Monica possesses the power of enhanced strength (50-ton class), supersonic speed, and self-sustained flight, and photonic projection. She can emit a blinding aura from her body and focus her light into searing energy blasts.
Name: Alejandro Ayala
Gender: Cisgender Man
Bio: A former member of Guatemala’s elite military unit, the Kaibiles, Alejandro was amongst its fiercest members. During a disastrous mission he was gravely wounded and alone, leaning his back against a huge ancient tree in the heart of the jungle, and the enemy was closing in. Bullets rained down around him. He hadn’t been hit yet, but Alejandro felt blood dripping on him… The ancient tree behind him was bleeding. He felt life thrumming from within. More bullets. The soldiers were upon him. With nowhere to go Alejandro plunged his hand into the wounds of the tree. It received him within itself, sealing him in. The enemy soldiers were dumbfounded, when suddenly the forest around them began to wither and die, feeding into the ancient tree until the tree itself blackened, withered and died. From within the trunk Alejandro burst out, reborn and remade. He singlehandedly slaughtered the enemy squadron with his bare hands. The jungle had chosen him as its champion, granting him its strength and vitality.
Powers: Alejandro possesses physical invulnerability and superhuman strength. His body is supernaturally resistant to physical damage of any kind. His strength is sufficient to lift 100 tons and punch through plate steel. His eyesight/smell/hearing are enhanced to inhuman levels, and he can telepathically communicate with the local biosphere of his immediate vicinity.
Name: Santiago Correa
Gender: Cisgender Man
Bio: The government of Colombia employs the services of an elite battalion of special operatives, known as La Legión Correa (thought to be named after their founding member and commanding officer). They are rumored to be unstoppable. They move with unparalleled coordination and outclass all of their opponents in both skill and numbers. Unbeknownst to the world, la Legión is comprised entirely of one man.
Powers: Santiago Correa has the ability to create multiple duplicates of himself, a phenomenon in which he can exist in multiple simultaneous points of parallel alternative spacetime continua (allowing each duplicate to operate independently). The scientists who discovered and experimented on him as a boy have dubbed him El Sistema Correa (The Correa System). The limit of duplicates he can create is unknown. On one mission he was able to spawn 100+. Each duplicate is an identical copy of the other and contains all of the previous incarnation’s knowledge/memories/experience/skills. Each dupe is capable of multiplying themselves and no one individual of the Correa System can act as “Prime”. As long as one dupe survives, Santiago’s consciousness will persist. When inactive the dupes will absorb into their nearest other until the System’s population is back to one. All active duplicates share a telepathic hive mind and can share sensory information with the others, allowing them to move in complete sync and making them an unstoppable team.
And the “System” in a group shot:October 8, 2015 at 4:50 pm #129523
Two more, from my birth-country.
Gender: Cisgender Man
Bio: Nothing is known of the man known as Muerto. From rumors tracing back the history of his sightings it has been surmised that he arose from a mass grave outside of Juarez. He could have been one of dozens of victims, all having met the same grisly fate caught in the crossfire of a narco turf war. It is rumored that he was murdered on the Day of the Dead, and being able to walk freely among the living at that time, his spirt rejected the afterlife to seek vengeance. He allowed his body to be resurrected by dark forces. Since that moment he has been waging a one man war on the criminal underworld of Mexico.
Powers: Muerto is undead, meaning he cannot be killed by mortal means. His body can be damaged, but the mysterious dark matter making up his form is able to piece itself back together from even the most grievous injuries. His touch kills living tissue and accelerates decay, literally rotting his victims alive.
Name: José Guadalupe Longoria Rosales de León
Gender: Non-binary (muxe)
Bio: Doña Bárbara lives in Northern México and his/her small village remains untouched by the violence that afflicts his/her community. The narcos are too superstitious to threaten him/her, so his/her locality remains something of a safe zone. Muerto came to him/her when he was first reborn, trying to understand how he came to be. He/She aided him, allowed him to understand his abilities, and still provides him a place to rest when he needs respite from his endless crusade of death and violence.
Powers: Doña Bárbara is what is known as One Who Walks Between the Veils, not quite a medium, but still able to perceive the unseen world of the supernatural all around us. This makes him/her an especially talented sorceror/sorceress. He/She is learned in the lore and arts of the ancient civilizations of her native land, skilled in all manner of offensive/defensive spells and incantations. It is not wise to cross him/her.

Legión’s outfit is great. It’s simple, effective, and has a good color scheme.
Also, Doña Bárbara is just the best 😀October 8, 2015 at 9:37 pm #129529

Thanks, guys! Always puts a smile on my face when people other than me like my stuff.
A quick group shot of another project (still Latino themed), I’ll probably post individual shots tomorrow.
Xol Xihuitl (through classic comic book mishaps and shenanigans) came to house a dimensional tesseract in his chest that made him one with an extra-dimensional armory of specialized tech suits. The armory responds to the psyche of the tesseract-wielder, and thus the armors adapted to his physiology and also shaped themselves after the Aztec deities of his childhood. Xol can summon each suit at will and fights for a better world under the guise of Aztech. Pictured:
Tonatiuh: Space exploration suit/graviton manipulator
Quetzalcoatl: Supersonic flight suit/favored suit
Coatlicue: Last resort worldbreaking destroyer suit/anti-matter cannon wielder
Huitzilopochtli: War-machine, too many weapons systems to count/harmonic energy wings
Tlaloc: Deep sea explorer/arc cannon/practically invincible
Tezcatlipoca: Stealth suit/invisibility/intangibility/ EMP generator
