@edamame: Say whaa? I always took Sinister to be a henchmen to Apocalypse, it's been so in AoA and the Ultimate/Legends games, even this thread confirms that Apocalypse was the maker of the slave. The very picture you shared before this says so. But to think Sinister went toe to toe with the big man? I thought Apocalypse was as big and evil as it gets in X Men storylines. He could even contend with the likes of Darkseid, maybe Thanos. I'm reading Inferno these days, Sinister just made an appearance. Though this forum is 3 years old, I feel like adding a few more.

"Arrow's been taking the Nolan Batman approach", not necessarily. Yes, the parallels of billionaire playboy having to survive in harsh conditions and being taught by mercenary ninja types to reinvent the image are there. But rite of passage stories are a common thing. Tarzan killing his leopard, Hercules' Nemean lion and Mowgli vs Shere Khan are (though not exactly the same) can be similar premises. Robinson Crusoe and the Tom Hanks movie immediately come to mind, but only as far as surviving on the island, not the ninja stuff. And not the trained by a badass villain bit. There were some real life Robinson Crusoes like Robert Knox too. Plus, it follows GA Year One too. I think the island is a good idea and is what makes GA something to respect. Plus the PTSD really appeals me, Batman Begins didn't do anything obvious with that
Barry's parents weren't always dead. He had a great family life before he died in Crisis, and in the old tv show, and when was it? After rebirth that they made Reverse Flash kill his parents? It's more of a flashpoint thing than anything
Faora only had superpowers on Earth, so as long as the fight is specified to be on Earth, I say Faora has enough "experience" being a soldier whereas Thor is a lazy god. Strength may not necessarily make a valid argument against dirty fighting.
i thought it was one of the Bella Twins (WWE Divas) and thought it would make sense to cast an actual (or WWE) wrestler as WW. Either way there's nothing to complain about, from her appearance to her action. WW is mostly about actions, almost everywhere i've seen her it's with a straight face
Guy in cape and helmet who was oppressed in his childhood/youth and grew up to be a monster with strong ideals, was also the college roommate of the good dr/professor, Doom is pretty much a facsimile of the awesomeness that is Magneto. If the votes that went for Mystique and Sabretooth was directed toward their boss, he would have won. Sabretooth is probably the coolest villain btw
Greg Cipes: Michelangelo, Iron Fist,..... he's played so many awesome characters. So has Tara Strong. I mean, Tara's awesome, she's played everything from Raven to Timmy Turner to Bubbles, each one an icon. But Teen Titans suck now. What do they do? They just hang out and waste time? Raven's father's appearance was interesting, at first. But this isn't Adventure Time and she isn't Marceline. Get serious guys. You take YJ off the air so the Titans can goof around? I like to feel like my life is going somewhere when I'm wasting my time watching cartoons. This is just depressing.
he's even on that anger management show
REALLY??? I've never seen him live. Is he a regular?
@cbishop: handlebars do give a feel of bareknuckle boxers. What are the rules for entry? I've been working on a character, might want to tell people about him.
This particular contest was showing an established comic character at their job - what they do to pay their everyday bills. My entry was showing Savage Dragon at his everyday job of being a police officer. That day's work had him fighting my original character of Heironymous. This contest is done, but please do submit a late entry, if you want! I would recommend posting it as your own fic, on the forum, and maybe just linking back to this thread, to say it was in response to this contest. People aren't likely to see it here, unless you call them out.
Oh, I see. Dragon is awesome. I've been a big fan of RoboCop myself, (it was even one of my nicknames at school) and we share that admiration of cops. I remember when I started following you, it was because of a blog you wrote about how more cops need to be in comics, and how cops hold a personal importance to you.
