But then I thought. nooooo, lets make this a real contest. A contest that will make the artist on here dig deep. And here it is. Your artistic mission is to turn our favorite space mercenaries, the crew of Serenity into Big darn Superheroes. And when I say crew I mean more than one member. Go big or go home! We're looking for multiple members, cool costumes and cool powers. Yo have till April 12 2012 to finish so have fun and keep flying!

@Ellocobruja: I gotta admit, for some strange reason I'd never watched Firefly before this but I wanted to know the characters so I spent the last weekend having a marathon till I viewed everything. Love it, Love it, Love it.

I thought about putting them in like a team costume but realized as I watched the show that these are very different and unique individuals and trying to make them all wear the same thing wouldn't look right to the characters. So I explored around and chose things that I think fit best to their personalities.

Big thanks for turning me onto this show for sure :)

@Blizaga101: no powers, it's really more like a western in space with some interesting characters :)

If you have netflix that's where I got the season and watched it, also wikipedia has a great writeup on each character that helps to get to know them.

It'd be interesting as hell though to see what powers you would give each one, that would make for a killer episode :)
