Has anyone here had an idea to create a character maybe when you were a young kid or maybe just screwing around that was just embarrassingly awful? If so here is their place to shine. Feel free to tell as much or little about them as you want.

Here are a few of my "winners"

1. Spinister- He's a villain whose gimmick is that he spins like a Tasmanian devil from loony toons.

2. Grappling Cook- A guy with no super powers who fights crime with kitchen utensils and a grappling hook.

Hard to think of one, I'm pretty awesome. When I was a kid, I came up with the superhero Spatulus. He's a guy who has spatulas for hands. His arch-nemesis was Sir Smart. An evil genius who has a metal brain.

That's actually kinda good! No stupider than Axe Cop or Dr McNinja actually!

I did once create a guy called Algebraic Man, he had the power of complex mathematics...

That's like the prototype for Edward Scissorhands "How about forks? Spoons? Whisks! Edward Whiskfingers! Or spatula's" :)

@awesam: @batkevin74: Spatulas and Grappling Cook could team up and make pancakes

@joshmightbe: @project_worm: @awesam: Someone needs to created "The Amazing Rejected Super Society" aka A.R.S.S full of the heroes we all rejected, like the island of misfit toys :)

He's not a cook. Okay, well he WAS a fry cook, but he accidently cut his hands off and replaced them with spatulas, but now he uses them to deliver a slap of justice.

Please, Spatulus could solo Superman.

I really think they stole that idea from me, except my guy has two spatulas. Now that I think about it. How did Spatulus cut his other hand off if he only had one hand...

#11 Edited by Project_Worm (3339 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: Easy, he cut of his left hand first used his right hand to attach a spatula an then used the spatula to cut of his right hand and then he attached another spatula to his right.... Somehow...

Barf Man. He (it?) was a humanoid, sentient mass of.....barf. I don't recall his origins.

@project_worm: No, no, he cut them both off at the same time unintentionally. I was like 8, so it made sense at the time.

That could actually be a really fun fic project

@joshmightbe: Would be cool but like you said there's no love for OC's. I mean come on over 40 views and not a single comment? Not even a "This Sucks!!" or a "Stop writing, you're pathetic" or a "not bad"... Okay, "mini-rant" over.

People tend to go for the absurd. I think this would count.

@joshmightbe: I'm pretty sure that someone stole the concept for the Annoying Orange from me the first time I got drunk at a high school party. Does that count?

@dngn4774: Drunken rambling is the only justifiable excuse for creating that televised abomination

@joshmightbe: Whenever I see that show I think to myself "Young Justice got cancelled but this crap is still on." Then I pause before I have and Erkelian recollection "Uh oh...Did I do that?"

@dngn4774: My wife makes fun of me for having the same view of the show as my daughter. See if I don't turn the channel fast enough when it comes on my kid will throw the remote at me and start yelling change it.

@batkevin74: Just now I realized we should totally make a fic about the rejected heroes. A.R.S.S is a fitting name.

Jarellian Markotunsil

chaotic evil

@betatesthighlander1: @awesam: @joshmightbe: That's why I suggested the name, first story arc: A.R.S.S "Kiss my!"

Spinister looked the mysterious man up and down "You called me here?"

"Yes" Sir Smart said as he dramatically emerged from the shadows.

"I presume your metallic brain has concocted some ridiculous plan!" scoffed Spinister "Hopefully it's better that turning all the cities traffic lights red, Sir Smart"

"IT WAS INGENIOUS!" roared Sir Smart throwing back his cape in disgust "Better than your tawdry efforts of spinning like a top robbing banks like a common thief, Spinister!"

"You used the commotion to rob a bank, you hypocrite!" snapped Spinister his hands begining to twirl at hyperspeed.

"Bah you're beneath me, what was I thinking?!" groaned Sir Smart.

"I'm going to spin you into a barbed wire fence"

"ENOUGH!" roared Penmanship who stepped from the shadows "THIS, THIS IS THE REASON WE GET BEATEN! ALL THE TIME!"

Spinister and Sir Smart looked at the man formerly known as Jarellian Markotunsil, now the deadly assassin known as Penmanship. Able to transmute pencils into pens, he made the saying the pen is mightier than the sword a deadly reality.

"WE NEED TO STOP THIS SQUABBLING, NOW!" the masked assassin glared at the two villains "We are here to work out we eliminate that pain A.R.S.S from our lives forever!" He grabbed a pencil from his bandoleer, turned it into a pen and jammed it into the table, spraying ink and plastic shards everywhere.

"Did you have to?" Sir Smart said derisively as he pulled a handkerchief from his pocket and wiped off the flecks of ink on his cape "This is dry clean only"

Penmanship threw a disc onto the table and a holographic projection appeared of A.R.S.S; Grappling Cook, Spatulus, Algebraic Man, Space Horse and Barf Man. "This is A.R.S.S!"

"We know" said Spinister rolling his eyes "We've fought them before!"

"I wasn't talking to you" sneered Pensmanship as he pointed in a circle to the dozens of Scottish ninjas who had appeared out of almost nowhere and surrounded the trio of villains "I was talking to them!"

Cue music, roll opening credits: GO!

I came up with a water-controlling superhero as a kid. He looked pretty cool, with a blue helmet with green visor, and a long flowing cape.

Here's the lame part:

His name was The Water.

Not Waterman, or Waterboy, or Captain Water. Just The Water.

I had an idea to create a character for a friend called Will who liked the Human Torch...

His superhero name was Human Torch Will...

I am not joking...

Also that rejected Supervillain thing would be really cool... if Human Torch Will could join in...

Either that or Axe cop

Let's see....

Paste-Person: He is a scientist that carries around a big two-handed glue gun attached to a giant glue bag which he carries on his back.

So pretty much he looked like Mr. Freeze, except he shot glue. (that's what she said)

@tommythehitman: Look! It's Human Torch Will...might get sued on the name but if we shorten it to Torch Will or Will the Torch who has all of Johnny Storm's powers

@sync1: Gross! :)

This was the thread to spitball ideas, the other one is the sign up page for the official group.
