    DC Universe: Online - Fight to the death for a Free Buddy Pass!

    Update: The contest will end on a later date. I'm taking a short vacation.

    I am still at a loss as to why I do not have any friends, and thus I have noone to give my free pass to.
    Unlike my esteemed colleague, of which the subtlety that he sold his soul to the corporate devil to advertise DCUO is as clear as glass these days, I will not require you bending yourself backwards with such pointless disgrace. No, I shall test your skills in the ring of honor! Only the one with the greatest mettle may triumph over all! This test requires quick thinking, great intelligence, cunning and, above all else, imagination.

    If you wish to receive the blessing of favor from the divine one himself, you must show me that you have what it takes to be a Super Hero!
    Tell me about the character you would make to unleash chaos or justice upon the world, and convince me that he is truly a hero of legend! He must not be some ripoff, or run-of-the-mill character that I would see upon simply glancing through a list of comic books.
    These characters will be judged upon categories, some of which depend on the character you make. Along these lines is wittiness of character/name, likable character, depth of character, super powers, motives, costume design(simple sketch or short description is sufficient), origins, etc. etc.
    The emphasis here is creativity. Defining character and/or uniqueness will win you the competition. Show me what your mind is capable of creating. Remember a hero's costume and powers aren't just flash effects. They're tools to reflect character as well.

    Spend a while thinking about it. If you rush your design, it may not come out very coherent or appealing. When you're ready, fill out the form below:

    Remember that the goal here is to have fun. Even if you don't win, this is something that should stretch your imagination, or maybe get yourself pumped on making a great character that before may not have been as great.

    I bought a physical copy of the game. I do not think you would get a buddy pass from purchasing on a 3rd party site.

    and/or Quotes: If we do not succeed, the void will take this universe as well.

    History:In the beginning, there was energy. From this, was formed the creators. The creators were always there, and they always will be, as they know not what they are, they only go on. When the creators were manifested from pure energy, they began to grow powerful, some more than others. So, a great creator, named Axellion, stored all surplus energy into what is now called by men the vault of light. All creators became equally powerful, as did Axellion himself.

    Lifetimes went on, and the creators have learned everything except where they come from and why. Frustrated because of this, they instead began to create matches between each other, although, this always ended in draws, as they were all equal. Therefore,, they instead decided to manifest entities from themselves, seeing who was willing to give up the most power, to create the best entity. Eventually, they began to hold tournaments of these entities, known unto men as champions. Creators transfused one champion from themselves. Axellion used the power from the vault of light to regulate the amount of power a creator could put into their champion. Therefore,, champions varied upon their traits. As champions won in battles we could not begin to fathom, they absorbed the energy of their opponent, growing more powerful, they would then move onto a fight with a champion who has also absorbed another. Once a champion of champion had been made, Axellion dispersed the energy from the winner back into the creators whom have manifested them. The most dominant of these were the elements known unto men, light, dark, fire, water, ice, and nature. Axellion was the creator of the nature champion. Followed by Ramdorus as the creator of fire, Glycol as the creator as dark, Lumouris, the creator of light, Aquatiris as the creator of water, and terik as the creator of ice. These champions were those who always advanced into the higher rankings, before the final matches, in which they draw or one wins. These victories happened in no discernable order. These champions rose and fell amongst themselves, and the creators of them were pleasured by watching them battle in equilibrium. All the creators, except Glycol, the creator of darkness.

    Glycol planned for many lifetimes to overthrow the rest of the creators, and his despised enemy, Axellion. Glycol was jelous of Axellion’s control over the vault and the immense power Axellion could abuse. The time came again, when all of the champions had reached their prime, and Axellion was ready to disperse them. Although, before he could, Glycol disarmed him of his power, only able to do so because of his stored energy of not creating a champion that particular tournament. He used this power to open the vault of light, and with this power, he created the most powerful champion of darkness ever manifested. He named his servant, Ryful. As the other creators bound Glycol, Ryful slipped away to continue his master’s work. He waited in the darkest corner of the universe, slowly sapping energy away from existence. Eventually, he became as strong as a creator himself. The other creators looked for Ryful for many periods, and it was only until he grew into a monster if stolen power has Axellion found him. Axellion was alone as he stared down the void that was creepily easing outward toward him, consuming all it passed. Ryful and Axellion had a battle, which ended with Axellion drained of his power. As the void that was Ryful crept toward him, he used a similar trick that Glycol had, creating his champion to continue his legacy.

    As his champion of nature, Wolfwing, returned to the creators, the void grew, and by the time Wolfwing had told them of what had happened, the void had consumed almost half the universe. And so, all creators, used their newly found powers (because they were no longer binded by Axellion) to attempt to defeat the void.

    In the battle, Wolfwing was consumed, and stripped of all but some of his powers, before breaking free, and found himself in a parallel universe. From here, he found earth, and found that much of it was covered with his elements. The other champions had also fallen with him and found that they were most powerful on earth, because of its elements. As they descended to Earth, Braniac’s bytes descended with him, and became empowered with their elements, giving the mortals of the planets a varied power that was equated to the champions. The champions now train on earth, using the enemies they have chosen to train, hoping they may one day they may become powerful enough to ascend to the creators again, in order to assist them in the fight against the void.

    Other: Hero

    Champions take their forms on earth to be symbolic of what they represent.
    Wolfwing takes the form of a wolf because of its obvious and simple role in direct food chains,one of the prime principles of nature.

    Super Hero/Villain Name: Gary: Bringer Of The Trousers
    Real name: Gary Peterson
    Age: 31
    Body Type: Small
    Super Powers: Uncommonly good with trousers
    Origin of Powers: Gary was born with god-given trouser manipulation abilities, but it took a life changing event to make himself aware.
    Costume: When evil threatens, Gary removes his pants and wields them as a weapon, becoming: Bringer Of The Trousers
    Personality: Shy and reserved - until the pants come off.
    Physical Qualities: Unfortunately, there is practically nothing remarkable about Gary. Bringer Of The Trousers, on the other hand, is not wearing pants.
    Motivation: To protect and assist citizens in danger.
    Strengths: Gary: Bringer Of The Trousers has no equal when it comes to improvisational use of pantalones. He is also pretty good at tetris.
    Weaknesses: Bullets, rockets, explosions in general, knives, swords, various heavy blunt objects, and love.
    Catchphrase
    and/or Quotes:
    "Has anyone seen my pants?"

    History:
    Gary Peterson lived a quiet life. He worked quietly at his job as an office copier specialist (want copies? Bring the document(s) to Gary. He wll press the button.), quietly ate his lunches alone, and quietly avoided eye contact with the pretty filing specialist girl, Emily. But a chance encounter with thugs in an alleyway shortcut woke Gary up from his lifetime of sleep walking. Being forced at gunpoint to remove his pants, Gary made a startling discovery: He was uncommonly skilled with trousers.

    Gary made quick work of the alleyway thugs with a mixture of trouser-based attacks and acrobatics, and resolved that one so gifted with pants had the responsibility to use that gift to help others. Gary Peterson may be just another office copier specialist, but once the pants are off, he becomes Gary: Bringer Of The Trousers.

    Other:
    Emily handed the documents to Gary. "I need 17 copies, double sided and stapled. Can you handle that?"

    Gary nodded, glancing at the floor, the window, the wall - anywhere but Emily.

    "And Gary," Emily said. "It's the middle of summer. How come you never wear shorts?"

    Gary smirked.

    Super Hero/Villain Name: Wally the Wizard
    Real name: Wallace O'Neill
    Age: 62
    Body Type: Average height.
    Super Powers: Ability to perform actual magic
    Origin of Powers/History: Wally has always loved magic. From the time he was a little boy, dragging his parents to shows, up until the crowning achievement of his youth, performing his very first show at magic camp between high school and college. Unfortunately, upon completion of college Wally found that the real world 9 to 5 was actually 7 to 8, and having a hard working nature, Wally abandoned his hobbies and focused on his career. Career eventually gave way to love, and love lead to marriage, which, as wonderful as it was for Wally, further restricted his free time. Marriage begot children, which rekindled a slight interest in magic for Wally, as he performed minor tricks he remembered for them, and took them to the occasional magic show. However, children added an additional layer of responsibility to Wally's already busy life, and he was not able to fully devote himself to the passion of his youth. Years went by, children grew and eventually left to form families of their own, and produce grandchildren. At a small birthday party for his daughter's son, upon request performed magic show. Wally brought his trick deck of cards, his magicians hat and a few small coins to pull out from behind the children's ears. Wally was shocked as he went through the motions that certain things were changing. He no longer had to look at the card the child picked to know what it was. The pennies he pulled from the ears of the children changed to large golden coins with unreadable inscriptions on them. When he performed the sleight of hand to drop the coin into his sleeve, it in fact vanished into thin air. The streamer hidden in his wizard's hat became a rabit, then a wand, then virtually any object that Wally could imagine pulling out of the hat. The parents weren't paying attention, and the children cheered just as loudly as they had before for his normal magic, but he knew something amazing had happened. On the way home he had his wife drive, so he could experiment with his new found abilities. Pennies became gold coins became silver dollars became dollar bills became hundred dollar bills before he laid the penny back into its original resting place. It seemed to Wally that in the waning years of his life he had been granted a phenomenal ability, but could not immediately determine the purpose. The next day, rather than getting in his car and driving to work, he drove straight to the downtown section of his city to try to find a purpose, or a meaning to these new found abilities.
    Costume: So far, Wally simply has his magicians red and black cape, and tall black hat.
    Personality: Wally has always been hard working, and friendly, generous to a fault and loving to his entire family.
    Physical Qualities: Elderly, Wally has shocking white hair and a somewhat slower gait of a mature and respectful gentleman.
    Motivation: Wally was driven his entire life to use his abilities to their fullest extent. It's why he succeeded at work, succeeded at marriage, and why he is now determined to find a way to succeed at making the world a better place with his shocking abilities.
    Strengths: Ability to transmute virtually any object into any other object. Ability to make objects (and people) disappear.
    Weaknesses: Wally is a respectful 62 years of age. His reaction time has slowed down considerably, he is slightly hard of hearing, and requires glasses while driving.
    Catchphrase/Quotes: "Penny for your thoughts" - Wally would say before tossing a penny, which became a quarter, a dollar, a stone, a brick, a grand piano at his latest opponent.

    Super Hero/Villain Name: Night Terror
    Real name: Sergei Volokov
    Age: 19
    Body Type: Regular
    Super Powers: Speed
    Origin of Powers: 'Volunteered' by his Soviet parents to undergo genetic experimentation after the end of the Cold War as an attempt to bring back Soviet Russia with use of an army of genetically modified humans, the experimentation worked, granting him excessive speed, the idea of a new Soviet Union, not so much.
    Costume: Black and gray suit, with a crimson scythe emblem on the chest area of the suit. Also wears a black half balaclava with a white shield emblem.
    Personality: As Sergei, he is a rather kind person, who is typically seen volunteering at homeless shelters, anywhere that he is useful. As the Night Terror, he his a cold, emotionless demon, who typically attacks the wealthy, greedy denizens of Gotham City or Metropolis as he sees them as being the downfall of humanity.
    Physical Qualities: Well built, with rather long dark hair.
    Motivation: The belief that he is doing the right thing in eliminating the greedy from the face of the planet.
    Strengths: He is incredibly fast, as well as agile, and is an expert at the use of the Tonfa, his weapon of choice.
    Weaknesses: He is rather bad at English, speaking with a thick accent, as well as his use of Technology is rather limited.
    Catchphrase
    and/or Quotes: "Those who live above all others, must be brought down in order to serve justice."
    History: He and several other Russian children escaped after the experimentation, fleeing to Gotham City, where they all were looking out for each other, little by little, the greed and corruption of the city took hold of them, save for Sergei and his younger sister: Tanya, who both wished to stop the corruption amongst the wealthy. Tanya eventually decided that she would best serve this goal by becoming a superhero, Sergei however, saw his idea of striking terror into the hearts of the greedy or eliminating them would bring around this goal faster, and thus became a villain. Both siblings dread fighting one another because of their connection, but the views that they have must both be served.
    Other: A target that he is now looking into is the figure known as Bruce Wayne.

    The following post is in good fun. Or bad fun. Some sort of fun, anyway. Please do not take Tiberius' unhealthy hatred of the proud Irish people as my own (self-hatred isn't good).

    Super Duper Hero Entry-Sheet

    Super Hero/Villain Name: The Verbose Vindicator of Vernacular

    Real name: Lord Tiberius Chesterfield III

    Age: 52

    Body Type: Regular

    Super Powers: The Verbose Vindicator of Vernacular possesses the capability to ensure his opponent's movement speed is reduced by a considerable amount, causing them to then be unable (or less able) to ably preform any and all tasks in which they would be trying to accomplish prior to being reduced.

    Origin of Powers: 8 months and 23 days following his being conceived by a union of his father and a nearby maid, Lord Tiberius Chesterfield III sprang forth from the womb fully mustached and unsatisfied with the poor and lower-middle class. Since then, he has been on an unending series of continuous journeys all involving the stopping of the poor and lower-middle class. Two years following his sixteenth birth-anniversary, Tiberius bludgeoned a poor Irish woman to death with her own cane. While in the act of escaping from the authorities that had responded to stop him, he discovered he could make them less effective at the task of responding to stop him. The Verbose Vindicator of Vernacular was at this very moment conceived and then realized several moments later.

    Costume:Costumes are for people who can't afford to pay for silence, knave.

    Personality:Personalities are for people who can't afford to pay for prostitutes, knave.

    Physical Qualities: One's mustache can never be too bushy!

    Motivation: Why, they're just so poor! So poor and so very...Irish.

    Strengths: Mustaches, top hats, instructing the 'help' on how best to keep both mustaches and top hats clean.

    Weaknesses: Rooms with a temperature exceeding or preceding 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Catchphrase: Now is the time in which we may proceed to do justice upon those deserving of the time in which it takes to do justice!

    and/or Quotes: I don't care if your grand mother is sick, stop touching my leg you little Irish potato-monger!

    Super Powers: Ability to teach people great wisdom in the blink of an eye.
    Origin of Powers: Archibald was born sometime during the 10th century. He one day started to feel strange. He started seeing strange things on the walls of his mothers cottage, strange runes he did not recognize.

He could understand the workings of the universe with a single glance at an object.

    Personality: Slightly insane.
    Physical Qualities: Quite weak, but he is in an immortal, thus he will never die of old age.

    Catchphrase: "The world will still turn tomorrow."
    and/or Quotes:
    History: Throughout many cultures it is noticable that a sudden outburst of technological development has occured for what seems to be no reason at all. This is his callsign. Many people has tried to find him over the centuries, but he remains hidden from the eyes of the world, unless he wants you to know he's there. He wanders the world in search of people worthy of enlightenment, people who can carry the burden of his wisdom. Many have died trying and only a select few have succeded.

    This is what I would like to make but some of the options aren't available in DCUO so I will have to do the best I can

    Super Hero/Villain Name: TS or Origami
    Real name: Roger Fillmore
    Age: 18
    Body Type: (small, regular, or huge?) Regular
    Super Powers: Can make anything out of paper and make it real
    Origin of Powers: Went into a coma and when he awoke he had the ability to create things out of paper
    Costume: Beat up cargo pants and boots. Shirt is whatever he picks up off the floor so its wrinkled. Wears a black trench coat, a staff on his back and messenger bag at his side he keeps the paper in.
    Personality: Can't sit still and must continue trying to find and live the greatest adventure
    Physical Qualities: He is physically fit and has a large amount of stamina
    Motivation: To be known as the greatest adventurer
    Strengths: Cunning, resourceful
    Weaknesses: Fire, Water
    Catchphrase
    and/or Quotes: "Well that's not very exciting is it?"
    History: TS comes from a world where everyone has super powers. When that happens it hard to get noticed anymore but TS wants nothing more then to be known throughout the world. Once a stranger appeared before him and claimed to be from the future telling him that his name would be legendary but whether it be for good or for evil only time could tell. Determined to see it through and be good he sets out with his friends to live up to the prophecy that strange main laid out for him.
    Other: TS is very good with making anything out of paper. Once he is finished and releases the object it turns real except for a heightened weakness to fire. It could be a sturdy bridge but fire would ravage the bridge easier then a normal bridge. In the process of making the object it is still paper so susceptible to water. Because of this, the staff he fights with when wet becomes a large umbrella he hides under to make his creations before turning it back into a staff to fight.
