For this contest I'd like everyone to think of two existing superheroes (or villians), one male and one female. Now imagine these two characters had a child together... 
 
When that child grows up they themselves become a superhero (or villain). I'd like you to create the character the child will become; what's their backstory?, what powers do they have?, what costume will they wear? 
 
The inspiration for this contest came from Kingdom Come where some of the characters were the offspring of established dc characters. Here are a couple of examples: 
  

Nightstar

(daughter of Nightwing and Starfire)

 

Red Hood

(daughter of Red Arrow and Cheshire) 


 


Deadline is 28th March

one question do the two parents have to be from the same brand

@payno: good call, this should produce very creative ideas. I got the same wonder as Project_Worm on the DC/Marvel potentials mix.

I don't think I'd be able to color this, I'm going to be really busy for the next couple of days. 
 
So here's my submission....
 
BLACK ARROW & ZAN CONSTANTINE

 
Black Arrow  (Carol Queen) is the daughter of Green Arrow and Black Canary. She has both her mother and father's superpowers, meaning she's an excellent archer and has the Canary Cry, although she can only use the Canary Cry when in absolute danger since it always seems to knock her unconscious. She's a bit of a trouble maker and always seems to go looking for a fight although this is also a huge weakness and often gets her in trouble more than out of trouble.
 
Her boyfriend is Zan Constantine, the child of Zatanna and John Constantine. He's an amateur magician but also has his father's con artist skills. He's a master planner, and is capable of getting out of almost any sticky situation by his fast mouth. He's a bit of a rebellious teenager and lives on his own after him and his mother got into an argument over him being forbidden to find out who i father is. 
 
The two partner up and fight crime whenever possible, Zan using his fast talking mouth and Carol using her superhero skills to solve crimes. The two have been dating for months, even though Oliver disapproves of Zan and his bad habits.

This is a really cool and interesting idea. I really like some of the characters that have come up here already. If I have time I'll create my own character and upload some original artwork for it too.
#16 Edited by Wormwood (69 posts) - - Show Bio

 

Prince Wyrd

Real Name: Jonathan Atomia 
Father: Anomaly 
Mother: Queen Atomia

Powers: Can absorb any matter or energy he comes into contact with, his body stores the template of what he destroys and he can recreate it an infinite number of times at a later date providing he has enough absorbed mass stored. The mass is stored in a pocket dimension, he can use the mass to reinforce his body making him stronger and more durable.

Weapons: Whatever he creates
 
Mini Bio: 
Born as the product of rape, Jonathan grew up hating his father. He is the heir to his mothers kingdom and due to his royal lineage during his upbringing wanted for nothing, partly due to his mothers orders, partly due to his incredibly fine degree of control over his powers. Growing up in his mothers subatomic kingdom he grew bored and absorbed a huge portion of his mothers empire to augment his size and integrate himself into the real world. He is incredibly nihlistic and is considered neutral as he is only really out for himself. He has been known to fight both heroes and villains when they try to contact or intefere with him. 
 
Sorry it's on lined paper but I was in a hurry to get it done.

I think you could get away with either but given the premise of the contest a lil one actually fits great.
specially if he/she is green, slightly mean, and got a God complex to sort through with parents from other ends of all spectrums. Could be great super-hero TV there. :)

Well taking a look at the OP's directions it was more the older, seeing the examples.  
Kinda like Hyperman, Superman & Wonder Woman's child.

@OmegaDynasty: I think with today's audience it's strategic to create new young heroes, there's more potential for momentum to encourage seeing them grow to the viewer. 
 
Don't get me wrong, you can still throw a pre-grown hero out there with creative storytelling and sell them successfully, but todays audience is getting more and more hungry for definition of character. 
They either want a totally NEW hero, or one that appears to be so.
Personally I blame the internet for that rush, but that's only a slice of the math in the equation ;)

Information: 

Karl Hargreaves is the son of Raven and the Séance. He inherited his mother's empathic powers, his father's psychic powers, and both of their morbid temperaments. Karl spends much of his time skulking around graveyards, talking with the dead. 

When the desire to actually help people strikes him, Karl fights crime as Nevermore. He's a fearsome foe, whose powers tend to leave his enemies lost in gibbering madness. Thank Trigon for that.   
 
Séance and Raven met when the Umbrella Academy was accidentally transported to another universe…not really that unusual for them. The difference was, this time they were stuck here. The Titans were quite welcoming, and some of them fell in love. 
 
Thus Karl and some of his semi-siblings created the Umbrella Titans..a new generation of bizarre and dysfunctional heroes.

she never ceases to amaze me, both with speed and talent :) 
  
@Icarusflies: again your story telling has the potential for great real implementations. Very interesting choice of parents, and creative results from it. You portrayed the mood and skulking good. I like how you're starting to work with shadows in the scene too, gives a dramatic effect to the tombstone when it appears backlit like that. :)

Heres mIne 



When the animal Victor Creed known as "Sabretooth" met Selena Kyle AKA "Catwoman" on a rampage through Gotham he had an uncontrollable attraction to her, and she was taken with his animalistic attitude. Long story short they had a child named Erik. It didn't take Selena long to realize that Victor was much worse than an animal he was a monster. Fearing for her child she took the infant Erik to the mansion of Bruce Wayne. Bruce promised to take care of the young Erik. Selena had explained who his father was so Bruce trained Erik in many kinds of martial arts, Bruce often took Erik and his first robin on missions with him. 
 
One night when Batman Robin and Erik where dealing with a extremely dangerous man known as the Joker, Erik lost it brutally beating the clown half to death. To there surprise the Joker had a rig that sent a bullet directly through Erik's skull, thanks to his father Erik was able to have a full recovery. Bruce spent the next few years making sure that Erik never lost control again.  
 
One night when Erik was working with Nightwing they met a man who told the now adult Erik that a man known as Sabretooth had killed his mom. Then just like that a life time of moral teachings were erased and he began his hunt as Adlet for his "father." 
 
Hope y'all like him.

      "I spill blood because I have to, but I protect because I want to" 
A man with the name of Warren Worthington lll or Angel, descendant of the Cheyarafim, a mutant race desecnding from angels, met and fell in love with a girl better known as Nocturne, daughter of his close friend NIghtcrawler, What Warren didnt know that Nocturne descended from a mutant race descending from demons or Neyaphem. They kept their love secret to avoid conflict between the two races. 
 
 After years of their hidden affair, Nocturne was pregnant. A child born between a union of two warring races. The Cheyarafim found out first and went after Nocturne, declaring the baby an abomination. Warren sacrificed himself and faced the attacking Cheyarafim by himself. He fell fighting for his unborn child. Nocturne went to her grandfather Azazel and asked for help. He agreed for the sake of his great-granddaughter. The two races fought while Azazel told Nightcrawler to protect Nocturne.  
 
In the middle of the battle, a child was born. The child was named Warren in honor of his father. The child later known to be "The Demon With An Angel's Wings"

I agree with Wormwood, was a good balance of story and art. And on the story side it had potential elements of classic tales, you almost get a mutant Romeo & Juliet kind of feel out of it, BUT WITH DEMONS :)
