For those of you who don't know, Dial H for Hero is basically the story of a regular person who uses a mysterious device called the H-Dial to transform into a superhero. The catch is, however, that they turn into a totally different hero every time they use it, with a different name, costume and superpower. The old Dial H for Hero series had a cool feature where fans could send in their ideas for original (and often ridiculous) superheroes and supervillains they wanted to appear in the stories, and I thought this would be an awesome premise for a fan-fiction series.

Basically, you guys just post an idea for a new superhero or supervillain, complete with a name, costume and superpower, and I will use them in my Dial H for Hero story. Ludicrous and outlandish ideas are both welcomed and encouraged, as part of the fun of Dial H is seeing the characters react to the kind of superhero they turn into, and attempt to figure out a way to use their new-found superpowers in a particular situation.

@thespideyguy: Since he's a cyborg, are his gadgets like a part of his robotic body? Also, what's his name?

@The Poet: Feel free to toss out more than one idea if you have them, the more the better.

@dirtychewbacca: Avocado Man (copyright batkevin74 2012) has the powers of avocados! Has a tough, dark green skin. Can project jetstreams of guacomole from his hands and can summon/control avocados within a 30ft radius. He's green, he's healthy, he's AVOCADO MAN!!! Hope that helps in your quest :)

Fantastic. I hope to see more ideas like this.

Once I have around 3-4 superheroes and maybe 1 or 2 supervillains, I'll start working on the first issue and do my best to incorporate as many ideas as possible. I think it'll be a whole lot of fun to read, or at least I hope so.

@dirtychewbacca: An a villian is Madam Du Fromage. She's a French assassin (dressed like a French Maid crossed with a Renaissance aristocrat) who wields a saber called the 'Cheesecutter'. Think a French Lady Shiva who talks like Batroc the Leaper!

Madam Du Fromage was created by batkevin74 at 9.43am Sydney time with minor thought put into it, all rights reserved :)

Adwilex the Fettered, a scaled, betentacled quadriped with the mind of a man. Vastly enhanced physical statistics, acidic substance that comes from his feet ( a la Kaine's wallcrawling) and the ability to increase gravitational pull in a small area.

She has to wear a bowler hat... or a helmet shaped like a bowler hat (aka a derby). ;)

Wow this is awesome. Thanks to everyone who has participated so far, you guys have come up with some pretty off-the-wall characters. I have a pretty hectic week coming up in terms of university, but afterwards I'm going to start writing the first few issues. Be sure to stay tuned and see how your ideas get incorporated into the story.

Thanks again.
