    ROUND #222 :: Steampunk Superhero


    DESCRIPTION


    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

    Good luck!

    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!

    Arc-1

    Here's me entry. Enjoy
    __________________________________________________ _____

    Arc-1 Bio:

    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.

    Abilities: Her goggles (steam mini-powered) give her vision through solid objects and access to a heads up display. Boots are specifically made to heed her ability to jump farther than the average person. Also, steel enforced and padded bottoms for comfortable prolonged usage.

    The slayer of giant evil robots!

    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.

    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.

    steampunk hero

    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!

    The Tempest

    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.
