Shadow Stalker

A former skilled thief turned in to a villain after an experiment went wrong. He has the ability to manipulate the shadows and become invisible in the darkness. He is a clever, cunning, vengeful person who is driven by his desire to control the city's underworld.
His catchphrase is "You can't escape the darkness"
He usually wears a dark coat/cloak with a high collar and hood. His eyes are full bleed white that can glow in the dark and he has a shadowy, ethereal form.
He has a gothic, dark, and sleek aesthetic that has you fear him but also there is an aura of mystery around him.

FYI I really enjoyed doing this bounty, can we have more like this FYI? I've kept this as a really simple drawing, I created it on my iPad using an Apple pencil and Procreate (drawing software) as my canvas.

This guy looks very evil!

Name: THE DOUBLE PUNCHER!!

The Double Puncher’s real name is a mystery. Some say they were once a mild-mannered accountant, but now all everyone sees is a costumed man who only punches twice at the same time.

Origin Story:

He was once mugged and almost unable to defend himself... Until he struck out with both fists at the same time. leaving his would be mugger a shroud of red mist. Thus discovering his new power.

Unfortunately this was no hero origin story. the double puncher slid into a world of personal gain and crime.

Personality and Motivations:

He went down the dark slippery slope of realising is power and exploiting it for hi own gain.

The problem is for him he holds no other super powers or invulnerability so he has to be cautious how he commits his crimes.

And unironically... "DOUBLE PUNCH"

Defining Traits and Features:

Hardened fists. sharp jawline, skinny, always wears a suit and looks like an accountant.

Powers and Origins:

Somehow, their double punches defy physics. Maybe the powers were bestowed to him from an evil source. maybe a trickster God.

This looks awesome! what was your process in making this??

L

haha i had in mind the the scene from hot rod where he performs a double punch with a kick and it always stuck with me as ridiculous. then when i saw this bounty. i was thinking of a villain that has really crappy powers but still uses them and tries to fly under the radar or actual powerful heroes.

Yea it looks super cool, such a good piece of work. I love the colours Used here and the comic book style efffevt still taking place within the artwork itself! Super impressive!

Shovel's avatar

L

Hi Laser-Bicep. This image displays several telltale signs of having been AI generated, and several AI detection tools have said the same with high estimations of certainty. We see your exchange with Shovel below, and because you're a member in good standing and there are enough prizes to go around on this occasion, we're going to give you the benefit of the doubt and award one of the $5 prizes. But in other circumstances we'd have to have a possibly awkward conversation. Without accusing you of anything, the bounty description does say that AI images are allowed as long as you're honest about them.

So... I decided to draw this one again :) I did my best lol.

Name

Lord Of Time

Origin story

My character's original name was "Mike" he was a nuclear physicist at CERN when they accidentally opened a small black hole, and through that black hole came radiation that they had never seen before. The containment was not enough and the entire team tragically died as no earth medicine or treatment could save them.

During his time as "dead" Mike had a dream of nothingness and blackness, he could still hear and feel what was going on around his "dead" body, but he could not move nor open his eyes until one night he woke up and felt, powerful, different. He was in a morgue draw and could not get out, he felt his power build and willed himself to be out and in his home and he did just that.

As he tested and tried his new powers he realised he could stop time and bend shadows to his will, moving from place to place with a mere thought but also, able to stop others from harming each other by stopping time.

Personality and motivations

He is mild-mannered and has a strong set of morals about "right and wrong" and feels the best way to help others, is to remain in the shadows, cloaked and hooded, bending time and shadows for the betterment of mankind, as this is his motivation.

Catchphrase (if any)

He keeps it simple, his main catchphrase is "I guess it's time to get started" (pun intended)

Defining traits and features

I would say his main traits are using his powers to help people and not further his own gains, he could easily rob a bank, or steal state secrets but he prefers to keep to his true nature and use his powers to help those in need.

His main features are for those who have seen him, cloaked, shadowy form with no identifying marks etc.

Powers and their origins (if any)

His powers come from the unknown radiation that came through the blackhole, no matter how hard he has tried, he cannot identify what it is, his powers are he can stop time dead and still move around and move people/objects, open doors etc. His mere thought is his will, he can be standing on one side of a street and will himself into the shadows of the other side with a single thought process.

Costume and aesthetics

As you can see by the drawing, he has no noticeable aesthetics as such, his entire body, is simply a moving shadow, so he dons a hooded robe to move himself around but can bend time and shadows, light etc to the point he is almost invisible and when standing still, he cannot be seen.

DARK JUGEMENT

Origin story

One day there was a small family of a father and his only daughter, a happy family even though the mother was gone in that family. His father was a scientist, always making new discoveries in his lab, he was the greatest scientist of his time.

One day a representative from a company came to her place to make an offer to work together to make a biological weapon with a tempting offer. The father thought about accepting it but the daughter hugged her father straight away and showed a frightened face. Which ultimately made the father reject him outright for the sake of his daughter.

The representative smiled and said "maybe today you reject it but one day you will definitely change your mind" while leaving the father and his daughter."

But the peace in the family was lost after the father refused the offer. Various disturbances continued to arise and in the end, after a long time, the child fell seriously ill because their water channel had been sabotaged by the company.

Furious about his situation, the father met with the head of the company while crying and begging for his son to be saved by giving him the antidote poison, the head of the company agreed with the statement "he must work together to make biological weapons and also become an executioner if where is there anyone who will leak the company's secrets?

And since then "Dark Judgment" was born, while making secret research he also silenced everyone who had the potential to bring down Company X.

Personality and motivations

I will do anything, for my daughter!! even though it requires me to go to hell!

Catchphrase (if any)

Huh, that's all? very weak.

Defining traits and features

Evil, dark, super strong

Costumes and aesthetics

Bat, purple, dark

The costume is inspired by Night Rogue by kamen rider build

My Image is AI Generated.

Hugsy the Heartbreaker was a therapist who was renowning for his empathy and his ability to connect with his clients, however after a car crash that gave hugsy a brain injury, this changed his brain chemistry to the point where his empathy was still there however he had no conscious and only wanted evil in the world

He was excellent and seeing vulnerability and insecurities in his clients and he kepts his friends close but his enemies even closer. Ending therapy with clients is supposed to be a happy moment. Hugsy hugged his clients at the end of their final session and stabbed them with a dagger during this hug.

His confidential work meant no one know who was commiting these crimes, he captured people's hearts by seeming like a careable and loveable person only to use his skills to manipulate and take advantage of people

He is warm and charming on the outside but cold and calculating within and he loves getting people trust and shattering their hearts, each heart shattered, each client murdered is a trophy for him. His motivation is that he wants to put people out of their misery, believing empathy and vulnerabilty is a weakness that needs to be destroyed

Catchphrase

I will make you feel your pain

His traits and feature, Hugsy is very warm and kind and has an uncanny ability to make people safe, understoof and feel safe,

The heartfelt hug before plunging a hidden dagger into them is his signature move and he wears a heartshaped brooch that discreetly keeps his dagger hidden

He has no supernatural powers similar to batman but his human ability to manipulate others is a superpower in itself, he knows so much about the human mind he can almost predict the future by predicting how people react, giving him and advantage over everyone he interacts with,

His costume is designed to disarm and comfort the people he wants to manipulate, however the red also shows his bloody intentions and his face mask his smiling but his brooch mask is crying showing that when people meet him they will be happy but when they get close to him they will be upset and maybe murdered

Thank you for being honest about the AI, Asim! It's a fantastic character design - very sinister.

A

Of course, honesty goes a long way and I'm not the best at design, yeah I was surprised at how good it came out haha!

J

My villains name is the dark plague.

origanilly he was just an ordinary man going by his day named Calum, all his life he had been bullied by all of his colleagues.one awful night those evil people shoved him into a hazmat suit as the acid trapped inside the suit formed with his skin bonding him to the suit.

This ends up causing him an indescribable amount of anger and that causes his corrupt and almost psychotic personality and characteristics as he will torture his victims before putting their misery to an end.

Calum was already a very smart man so when he turned evil he created many torture devices including his most used acid rifle.One more signature weapon was his blade of destruction which he spent 2 months forging from scraps he could find while in hiding from the public.

His costume is a yellow tone with red glass eyes, a black mask and black zipper.His avid gun is mostly consisted with colours of grey, black, green and yellow.

Just about asked for a new villian and here we go !

So usually I would go massive monster, Elden ring boss level bad guys, but this one came to me and needed to be drawn.
It is a little more reserved than my normal but no less surreptitious !
I introduce to you, The Idealist, he is a child of a worn torn Country, seeing his family and loved ones blown up around him in a war over power and greed and land !
His abilities showed themselves when he was early in his life, at 10 he managed to get a foster parent who had been mistreating him to jump in to a raging river, being lost to the tide.
He knew then that this was no coincedence.
over time the Idealist's power grew and he honed his craft, he could manipulate more than one person at a time, he could make it seem like the ideas were the original ideas of the person, like he was never there at all, but he would know.

using his abilities he garnered power and money, moving from corporate fame in to the world of politics and there he looks to establish dominance and control.
This is where we find him today, on the edge of ceasing power and on the verge of taking a step closer to his goal.

https://twitter.com/Kings_Crt/status/1813305602874950098



Villian name: The Idealist.
Real name : Linus Corf
Powers: Telepathic suggestion, this can be as simple as a thought or a whole plan, this can last a second or the person can be made to believe these ideas are there own and carry them out to the end.
Aim: to achieve ultimate power and thus bring about peace by any means, even if that means to manipulate everyone alive so that peace can be achieved.
Weaknesses: physically the Idealist is less than average for strength, stamina and physical prowess, making him easy to break physically.

The monocle is not just for show; it’s a high-tech device that can scan documents, hack into systems, and provide real-time information about anyone he encounters. An Apple Vision we wanted lol
