Well, with the last contest kinda getting stuck in purgatory there, I'm going to move this new one along with a character who is...well, pretty interesting.
Listed on the Comicvine Public Domain Characters list, the subject of this contest is a character who belonged to legend before he was ever printed or published in any form of media. This character's name, as the topic head says, is Spring-Heel Jack, who was reported to have terrorized London in the 1830's on up (last sighting I guess was in 1970).
Described as a very guant figure with a gentleman's appearance, he was said to have worn a helmet of sorts, a white "oilskin" one-piece, and a black cloak. He was also reported to be able to spew blue and white flames and he apparently would claw and slice at people with his long "fingers" and as the name implies, he's very good at jumping (feats include jumping a 10ft tall cemetery railing, and I believe he was known to trek rooftops).
Featured in various forms throughout history, he's been played as both a rouge and as a hero. What he is to you though, is what I'm looking for in this contest.
I imagine this contest running until July 20th (or the first day of Ramadan). What do you folks say? Care to take your hand at redesigning a centuries old legend of the night?
