    Name: Pinball
    Power: Pinball’s body is made of a flexible, rubber-like material he can form into a ball, and he uses this ability to bounce around at meteoric speeds. At his top speed he’s been known to completely total busses accidentally.

  • Name: Fanboy
    Ability: Able to whine about pretty much anything and everything.

    All in all, this is a fairly terrible superhero.

  • The arbiter.
    He’s a future man and has implants in his brain that enable him to know what his opponents next move will be 100% of the time. Due to this his “superpower” is that he can’t lose a fight.
    Like a boss.

    He’s about 3 metres tall from the back down, has long anorexic legs and arms, he has a person growing out of his back with no arms and heavy chains going through the eyes of Qual, into the eyes of the rider on top, out of his arm socket and chained back to Quals legs. He has no supernatural abilities except for his appearance. He also has giant blades slashed into his stump arms bound with barbed wire. The sculpt is almost done for anyone keen to see 🙂

  • Dupligob

  • Rebecca Black the Banshee

    Her annoying and blunt siren ode to Friday and love for even the most mundine of tasks can only be a prelude for the awesomenss that is the weekend…afterall…Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend right?

    Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
    Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun

    Perfectly suited for drawing attention, with her song writing skillz and cringe worthy vocal talent. Her knowledge that the weekend is reserved for such awesome events like gaming parties is unparallel.

    For she is Infamous Too !!
    (ho ho ho…see what I did there ??)

  • I know I said I can’t go, but what the hell.. i can always give it to someone else if i win!

    The Scottsman! He shoots thistles from his crotch when he hip-thrusts, and blinds his enemy with what lies beneath his kilt as it flaps about from the thrusting!

ThornTron and fleet of automated hover trucks The Sea Changer can transform a despondant Taiwanese Programmer into an upbeat Bermudan Bartender in a single lifestyle program ad break.

  • Captain Consensus

    In a world of increasing divisions, delusions, finger-pointing and bias one super hero stands alone in the fight for bipartisan non violent resolutions. Whenever progress screeches to a screechy metaphorical halt Captain Consensus bursts into the debate armed to the teeth with weapons of wisdom.

    Captain Consensus fires empathy tipped bullets into the face of bigotry, melts away resistance to change with a futurism fueled flamethrower and stabs ignorance in the dick with a household box-cutter.

  • The Golem

    A man (or woman?) that can sheet himself in molten rock. The tragic hero since its slowly killing him, you know as every comic book hero does nowadays.

  • Super Hero: Combination Chuck

    Super Power: Has the ability to combine objects synergistically to create fantastic gadgets, tools and weapons.

  • Firestream: a rare genetic disorder causes a teenager to be able to transform himself into pure energy and shoot across any ionic medium. Soaring across the cosmos, swimming through the sreams of the world, crackling through your nerve pathways…..he is FIRESTREAM. As an older man, after the Earth is destroyed in a Nuclear Holocaust, he flees to a distant galaxy and becomes a totalitarian dictator to another alien species, so that he doesn’t have witness such horror and destruction ever again. Hero to One Race, Tyrant to Another.
