Your chance to help me out some more! :)

Ok, here's a bit of a weird question. You see, when I was a kid, I always created heroes and pretended how cool it'd be to have a comic, or have them star in a comic.<P>I've sort have made that dream true, but I thought, "Hmmm, there's got to be others out there like me."<P>So here's the deal. Time to get your creative juices rolling. Because I would love to have many unique heroes in my comic as supporting cast, I figure, why not have you guys come up with some of them, which would leave me to think up the story and punch lines? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>I mean, so far, I have Tall Girl, HeroChic, Bruce, Kapa Cino, Smash-Up and Gopher Boy, though the later two haven't formally appeared in the comic. (for those who are wondering who Kapa Cino is, it's the Superbucks girl. She'll come back into the strip soon or my friend will kill me! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> )<P>So, all I need ya to do, it write up a little blurb about a hero (or villain I guess) their main power, typical personality, and how they look. If you're really into the mood you can even draw the character. It doesn't have to be in my style, as I could easily change it, and it doesn't have to be super well done drawing either. A pen sketch on a napkin is fine as long as I can get the gist of it.<P>Why am I doing this? Well, I really want to get the community moving again. It seems to have slowed down. Also, the other main thing I wanted to do with this comic, other than have every character make at least two appearances, is have the readers take part in the comic. I figure, I better try this now, while my audience is still fairly small.<P>As for those wondering about me stealing your idea, I assure you, I'll give you credit, and constantly, and even write your name up as the creator of that character in the CAST page. Being an artsit/graphic designer, I would NEVER want my stuff stolen, so I'd never do the same.<P>So, post your responces here, and the picture if you have one. If you don't have a spot to upload your picture, post your responce here, and email me the picture, and then I'll post it here.<P>Hoping to see some cool stuff soon, and thanks in advance again,<P>Quattro<P><P>------------------

Yay!! I actually had an idea about a character a little while ago. <P>I'd love to see a Superhero/oine who ALWAYS arrives just a little too late to be of any assistance. They'd have an elaborate outfit, the whole secret identity thing and have tons of the merchandising stuff (eg- batcar, batbicycle, batglasses, batshoehorn, batchewinggum....) but they'd always be arriving just as the police do to walk away with the criminals in cuffs. The character is kinda based on the idea of Die Fledermause from 'The Tick' but rather than actually wanting to miss all the action they want to be there- they just cannot ever manage eg- their cave/hideaway/headquarters is 1/2 an hour out of the city and there's always a traffic jam, that sort of thing.<P>I'll do a sketch and send it to you this week sometime, and I'm gonna make it a heroine so that I can draw me in the outfit. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>^_^ Zedstar

I'd like to see a superhero-dressed animal mascot that people keep mistaking for a superhero. Something obviously <I>not</I> a person, like a tortoise or something. So they could go:<P>"Oh, no! That girl's hanging out of her bedroom window! Quickly, superhero, save her!"<P>::confused look from tortoise::<P>heh...mebbe that's just me...<P>Kritter out

Ok guys, I see I've gotten a few suggestions, and so far, so I'd thought I'd comment on what's here so far. Zed, your idea of a hero who's always late is quite intriging, and several ideas have already scooted across my mind. Can't wait to see what she looks like, or her costume idea.<P>Kritter, as for an animal who looks like a hero, hmmm, perhaps. It'd have to be the 'right' animal. The only probalem with this idea is that there will be a couple up-coming character who are animals. Again, the possibility for him is there, if a good enough situation arose.<P>As for Not-so-NiceGuy, this one is another iffy. Many heroes tend to have a 'negative' version of themself, and I sort of didn't want it. Then again, now that I think about it, I am spoofing comics, so I could just as well spoof the whole thing and make a couple comics out of it.<P>Well, I guess that's about it for now. Thanks for your ideas, and I hope to hear about some more.<P>Quattro<P><P>------------------

I'm not very good at creating super heroes.
An idea I had a long time ago was a supper hero who was just a kid, and he was really skinny, it looked like you could snap him in half, but he was actually really strong.
I doubt I'll ever make a comic about it now.
I called him Extra-Super-Strong Guy.

How about "yells really loud boy"? I have no idea why, I guess i just wanna see gadget with GIANT ear plugs! ^_^<P>Maybe you could do someting like "Bad pun Babe", Some random girl who makes really bad puns about everything and any thing. See, the puns are SO bad that the evil doer is rendered helpless because they're either trying to figure it out still... or it's so horriably lame they stop, and look at her in duiscust. (sadly, she would actually be just like me!) anyway, it'd give you an excuse to put in all those puns you probably keep coming up with, that your afraid if you put them in every one'll be like "dude, that was just a pathetic excuse for a comic". You could even have Nice guy (or any one) trying to explain to her just why no one else is laughing but her. (Or even have him be the only other one besides her that finds it humerous, makeing him seem like a dork.) I'll send you a sketch later if you don't find it ~iffy~. Either way, i'll stop waisting space here, lol!<P>-greta/trensess

Not bad........though bad pun girl is a pretty weird name...you can still do the sketch mind you. Artwork is always good <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>Also, a friend (Andrew, the other guy who helps me and Dan/Gad out) came up with some cool characters. Once I get the chance, I'll draw them and post the picture up here so you guys can see. Sorta a 'sneak-peak' for the people who actually do come here and check messages.<P>Dan/NiceGuy<P>

You could always get super heroe ideas from Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Like these:<P>Captain Hallucination
Overindulgence Boy
Carpet Appreciation Girl<P>I'm just kidding really.
