Okay, folks, you get a little variety this time. I ran across this picture of "The Patented Gillis Superdude Name Maker" on Facebook. It's named after comic writer Peter B. Gillis, but that's not important here.
What IS important is that you use this name maker to come up with ONE ORIGINAL HERO... ONE ORIGINAL VILLAIN... ONE ORIGINAL WEAPON... and you guessed it: WRITE A STORY ABOUT THEM! The original pic is at the right, but I have alphebetized it in the table below.
Two stipulations here:
Some words are in both columns- no combining those. So that means no...
- Dragon Dragon
- Fire Fire
- Hawk Hawk
- Phantom Phantom
- Shadow Shadow
- Star Star
- Wing Wing
I don't know why anyone would want to use these names, but there's the rule just in case.
The joke of this Name Maker is that Mr. Gillis and others have named many of the established comic characters we know and love using the possible combos on this list. TRY to avoid those. I'm not going to say you can't use them, because... well... I'm just not going to police that.
BUT... this is for ORIGINAL characters. So: have fun.
- Column A (example: Death) is the first half of the name, and Column B (example Bird) is the second half of the name.
- If you want to make it Death Bird or Deathbird, that's up to you (but Deathbird is an established Marvel character, so see Stipulation 2)
- NO to Column B then Column A (so NO Bird Death/ Birddeath)
- Each name is just ONE column A and ONE column B. NO A B of A (so NO Death Bird of Doom)
- Using the name maker, create one hero, one villain, and one weapon.
- Write a story about them.
- No name doubling (see Stipulation 1 above)
- Try to avoid established character names (see Stipulation 2 above)
- No word limit.
- Deadline is Thursday, March 3, 2022, @11:59PM New York time (click the link if you're unsure).
I look forward to your entries. Have fun, and see you in two weeks!
