ROUND #222 :: Steampunk Superhero
This week’s challenge will be all about designing an interesting character with both steampunk and superhero characteristics. Both influences must be recognizable in the final design, but you are completely free to think of what kind of superpowers your character will have. To give a few guidelines:
A superhero is a type of character possessing "extraordinary or superhuman powers" and dedicated to protecting the public and has some visual characteristic (typically an outfit) that makes him/her identifiable. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superhero)
Steampunk is a genre that involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk)
Design a steampunk superhero!
- Think of an appropriate name for your superhero!
- Make it an iconic character, recognizable, it’s a superhero after all

Hey heres my entry, I wanted to do some extra images to tell this story, but havent got the time. So just the single image.
Jessica was a child working in the great industrial factories of Northern England. She worked for one of the most infamous companies, known for its harsh working conduct and world wide expansion. The company brought misery to all its workers and families.
Jessica had began working on one of the companies new revolutionary machines, when one day, she accidently got caught and dragged into the bowls of this new machine. However instead of death she survived, and somehow inherited the ability to control steam.
She still wears the clothes of the company which bears their logo, as a reminder of her enemy and in an effort to change the meaning of the symbol. She fights for all child workers and the working class.
Ok thats all i have time for,. Thanks Bye!
Here's me entry. Enjoy
Struck by lighting, Arc, short for Archadia, was saturated with pure energy. This incident gained public knowledge as everyone sought "the living lighting rod" as she was later called as a joke. Dr. Lewis Henstral, her father and a renown Physicist, knew he had to protect her from the scientific vultures that would try to use her a guinea-pig, with hope of creating a new soldier race. So, with just a a few articles of clothing, he and his daughter fled to a remote part of the country where he could continue research on how to help his daughter and hopefully find a cure. It was a race against time for the energy had already begun to consume her physical body. one night, she was awakened with unbearable pain and a light that seem to engulf the entire room. In shock and fear she tried stumbled out of bed making her way to her father's room, all the while streams of lightening seemed to bounce off of everything thing she toughed. Not only that, but everything around seemed to heat up. Hear the commotion, Dr. Henstral bursted into the hallway to find his daughter unconscious and enveloped in pure light. Once she came to, she was resting on a table hooked up to wires and all sorts of devices - something out of a Frakenstein movie! She herd her fathers voice in a compassionate tone all to familiar, but concerning, "You'll fine now my daughter. Everything will be...just fine". Feeling something different about her, she looked to her left to discover her arm incased in a massive iron contraption, and a sharp paint in her chest. "I had to do it this way, Arc, my darling child, for if I had not, you would have...have.." he began to weep, as she embraced her father saying, "I know father. You did it to save my life. for that, I am eternally grateful"
- The device he gave her regulates the amount of power she is able to release as well as stilling the effects of the electricity from consuming her entirely. She would later master this device and also discover that this harnessed energy that surged through her, gave her amazing abilities such as super strength and agility. In a time of oppression, one person stood against the ternary of that age, and her name was Arc-1, a light in the darkness.

In a world where steam technology reigns supreme, and is terrorized by giant self replicating evil robots, one human has taken a stand. After tragically losing an arm in her early battles against the robots she has an artificial graft of a super powerful robotic arm. To generate enough energy to rip apart through solid steel she has a steam powered reactor on her back.
The gun also has a smaller version of this powerful steam reactor. It shoots out super fast streams of condensed steam, this is a close range weapon and if it gets in between a robot's external armor it can blow them up from the inside.
And the WIP:
hey all, this is my submission
his name is 'The Steam', i am trying to do a teen steampunk superhero with a huge weapon (because i thought it is cool). i want it to be more like a normal kid, a little bit funny, goofy, but have the ability to change both his hand and feet into metal.
here goes the wip.
view my blog
Edit: added a glow
Captain Clank. Injuring his heart in an unknown industrial incident that wiped out most England, a mad scientist replaces it with his own steam-powered invention. The technology is so far ahead of anything of it's time, it is able to concentrate fuel to give 1000x more efficiency than any other current technology. The small door on his chest can be opened to reveal the furnace. This fiery furnace of a heart gives him incredible strength and endurance, but with a down-side that he needs to constantly refuel it else it, and him, will die.
Living in a post-apocalypse period, technology has been mostly wiped out so he had to craft his suit from scraps. Along with his primary weapon, a giant spanner, he carries a hand-made flame thrower which can melt anything in it's path. Because fuel is so limited, he only uses it when he really needs to. He now spends his days fighting the violent sub-gangs of a broken down, post-apocalyptical Northern England, trying to find a cure for his broken heart.

Tick tock tick tock... that's the sound of your life running out...
Many people reported seeing mysterious woman in this foggy city... She enters people lives when they are in danger of untimely death on the streets...
Let me introduce...
Lucinda Monroe, ordinary nurse working at the hospital... But at night she becomes mysteriuos superhero, never wants to be seen, never to be recognized.
Her father, genius watchmaker and inventor gave her a Clock - and it definitely wasnt the common one.
Its a strange piece of machinery, seemed to be completely out of date. Furthermore, it glows with strange blue light... When she is turning back the hands on the Clock she can turn back time, save the dying person from danger... and catch the killer. At first she has been doing it at the hospital, but she can only turn back time for an hour back... So now if she wants to save lives she needs to have a second life - life of a mysterious superhero.
haven't done one of these in a while. had a late start.
georgiana justice was in the wrong place at the wrong time. she witnessed a crime and payed dearly for it. her severely beaten and broken body was found by scientist and inventor, doctor ruthledge, who attempted to put her back together again. now, part human and part steam powered machine, georgiana devotes her time to keeping the streets safe so that what happened to her will never happen again.

Ok, so this is Mr. Taylor Loft.
He was a manager at a huge clocktower in the middle of the city Mechanicum.
One day he became witness to the criminal acts of the steambots, and was regrettful that he could not do anything as a mere citizen.
So he went to his clocktower and used all his genious mechanical skills so create a cogg that could be used to travel the tubelike skylin of Mechanicum!
And thus, Wheeler was born!
Great challenge people! It was really fun!
Introducing Professor Reginald Raptor, the City's leading ornithologist. On a research trip into the cursed lands to study the migratory habits of the Yellow Shafted Booby he was pecked by a radioactive pigeon. Now, with the ability to communicate telepathically with his avian friends who act as his eyes and ears across the city (do birds have ears?), he patrols the skies, ready to swoop down on unsuspecting criminals. He is known as ... The Iron Hawk.
"She is mean. She is strong. She fights all those evils that lurk in shadows. And now - she is out to get you.
Her name is Amelia Van Helsing. The one and only... CRIMSON DAGGER."
OK, OK, I know - the name... But hey, if the shoe fits...!
Anyways, this charming young lady is a real menace to vampire society, just like her namesake. Think...Modesty Blaise meets Blade meets Dracula meets...Metropolis...+ steam punk. (Or, as Arthur Two Sheds would say, she`s a ninja robot!pirate) As for gadgetry, she`s sporting a nice pair of "special" glasses that detect body heat (and help identifying the living from...well, the others), a set of smaller weapons/blades hidden or embedded throughout her outfit, a miniature Tesla coil on her left hand (that discharges enough electricity to stun an opponent or cause other machinery to go kaboom), and a signature silver coated dagger with a crimson handle as her weapon of choice. Due to the Tesla coil, her under suit is made of a rubbery material, which protects her from the discharge. And...yea. A fancy hairstyle. Because she`s worth it.
And because YOU`RE worth it, here are the WIPS
Great round, everybody! This one is going to be tough!
Professor Edward Connor Johnson, an archaeologist who has been excavating in the ancient pre-Colombian cities in Mexico for 10 years. Just when his unsuccessful expedition is about to close he stumbles upon the legendary lightning gems of Tlaloc. The orbs grant the possessor the very supernatural powers of the lightning god himself. The Professor took this opportunity to do some good for mankind, by ridding the world of evil. With the help of his copper helmet and leather breastplate he channels the power through his body and commands lightning at his will.
He calls himself "The Tempest"
This was a great topic and it was really fun.
Bethany Shipgood's ability to glow manifested when she hit puberty at age 13. Her parents sent her away to an academy for the "gifted", where she was taught to suppress and control her ability and it took her a few years to master her light emittance and her unfortunate mishaps with unintended flashbangs. When she returned to her hometown 6 years later, she was appalled by the high crime rates and decided to do something about it.
"Here, follow the light through the fog, you'll be safe with me."
A German born boy lost his arm to a land mine as a young boy during the gruesome and brutal period of the World War...He knew in his mind that this was not the kind of world he'd want to live in..Brave and without fear he enrolled into the army and outdid other soldiers even with his weakness...He was chosen among the thousands to test new military technology where he was given his superhuman arm...Tried and tested he was pushed to the limits and he knew what was to be done..And there started his fight against injustice.
First CHOW on conceptart! Was awsome!
She was born and raised in a wealthy family of scientists, and budding geneticists; all the privileges and notoriety of the upper-crust at her young, deft disposal. Her family wanted her to pursue schooling and education. She just wanted to fit in with the fancying teens of the day; attending parties, courting strapping young men, rebelling against the norm... But accidents are prone to ruin such thoughts, especially scientific ones. Her mother and father, both highly-renown in their research with harnessing energy, had been able to tamper with Diamond as a child so much that she began producing and harnessing raw energy as puberty hit. They didn't know how they did it, but it happened. Lives changed. Hers for the better. She saw her old life as childish and selfish. With her new abilities she wanted to help others... Gifts from her parents, she uses the specially crafted cogs as focal points for her powers. The ones she wields by hand gifting her with supernatural strength and endurance, but only when she's directly channeling and concentrating her energy into the weapons. The ones crafted into her shoes giving her heightened speed and flight, but again only by her conscious, willing decision. Her mask and eye piece(s) help her view paths of energy.
This Super Hero is mostly renowned for his great heroic pose. Oh... and he also saves people form time to time.
In a freak accident involving Liquid nitrogen and a polar bear LIN's blood was chemically altered and now has the same properties as liquid nitrogen. She uses her new super powers to scupper the plans of dastardly ill-dooers by firing freezing shock-waves at their steam-powered weapons with her icerator (which harness' her blood's super-cooling properties).
She also makes a mean Slush Puppy

Yeah, managed to finish!
Mr. Chimney Sweep - Keeps your rooftops clean and safe!
Just for the fun of it, here's his backgroundstory.
Mr Jim Baker, one of those many Chimney Sweeps of London, always known to be a little clumsy, cleaned the chimney of the University of magical and mysterious crafts of London. Accidently, he fell and he would have died, trapped in the flue. While he stayed there, already accepting that he'd die there, a young student experimented with the ink of a squid (and other magical ingredients). Unfortunately the experiment went all wrong, so he angrily threw the mixture into the fireplace. The smoke wnt up into the chimney, where our poor Mr. Baker still waited for death to come. Instead, the cloud of magical smoke changed him. He found himself being able to shoot a cloud of smoke out of his fingertips. Also his scarf seemed to follow his will. That was the day Mr. Jim Baker turned into Mr Chimney Sweep, fighting the evil with his Chimney Sweep powers.
Errr, yeah: End of the story.

Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Fogster Jones was appalled at the cost of dry cleaning bill and, being an extraordinarily physicist/mathematician had tinkered herself an apparatus. By accident she discovered it can propel her right through the ceiling and thus rendered her useful to the society. Boomba Jones, until recently was a renown ladies man, his inexplicable charm worked like a magic, which amassed him a considerable fortune. When Fogster crushed through the wall of his mansion during one particularly nasty fight, he was smitten himself at last. She was resistant at first, but he melted her heart by making her attackers do the chorus line in the middle of the battle. Few adjustments and a marriage later, Boomba's charisma is now used for a better good of the society, his signature move being : Everybody, Cha-Cha!
Good luck everyone!
