For this contest I'd like to see everyone redesign the public domain character, CAPTAIN FUTURE.
"Andrew Bryant was a young research scientist who worked for the Pacific Electrical Corporation. In desperate attempt to prove that his work had value to the company, he took a chance and crossed gamma and infrared rays. The experiment blew up in his face, but he survived and, as he quickly discovered, getting bombarded by the resulting radiation gave him superpowers.
Captain Future can fly, hurl energy bolts from his hands, read minds, listen to radio and television broadcasts with his mind, and has super strength. But strong blows to the head can render him unconscious, and he must frequently use his machine to recharge his powers."
