A contest for the creative and competent.

Take any mainstream DC character and give them your own personal makeover. Strip'em down tot he bare essentials juice'em up to cosmic levels. Go crazy.

The best remake wins a Viney award and bragging rights over their defeated competitors.

Obscure characters will probably have a greater impact unless the remake you choose to give a major player is so mindblowingly original that it steals the show...unlikely,but we'll see.

Pick one mainstream DC character and get cooking.

I will PM the judges I think wouild fit the contest. Judges are allowed one entry as well.

The contests final judgement will be announced New comic wednesday.

When young Bruce Wayne's parents were gunned down in front of his very eyes, he decided that he wouldn't stop until all crime was completely obliterated. He became completely psychotic and single-minded in his quest, training his body to the pinnacle of perfection, learning every martial arts style he could find, making sure his mind and deduction skills were just as sharp as his body, like a razor. Unfortunately, this meant he never socialized, never matured into a real human being. His butler Alfred tried to give the young man structure and boundaries, but when he died from a heart attack when Wayne was just 18, all hope was lost to restore humanity to the poor soul. Figuring that criminals are a cowardly and superstitious lot, Wayne dresses up as a nightmare to the public, quickly dubbed "The Batman" by the press. His first year, he quickly cleaned up the crooked politicians and major crime activity, and as well established himself as a symbol of Justice and unwavering might. But this wasn't enough. People still peddled drugs, prostitution was still seen blatantly, and the police force was too concerned with the rights of dirtbags to really make any headway. So, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He closes off Gotham, intimidating the politicians into receding from the U.S, and completely closing it's borders, allowing only the strictest of freedom to allow for supplies and things. Then, he begins the tedious process of setting up cameras in every single street lamp, every bus, every vehicle, transmitters and things in almost every heavy article of clothing, even bugging people's homes and lives and whatnot. To make matters worse, he keeps repeating offenders in his Batcave, to experiment on them and see if he can't find the cause of crime. Various subjects that he labels "Twoface," "Mr. Freeze" and the like are experiments gone wrong, ending in physical scarring and mental psychosis from the trauma of abduction and UFO-like experimenting. In fact, the Joker is one who got away, a "Pied Piper" if you will, trying to rally the people of Gotham into freedom, and gone completely crazy from being tortured by Batman. But, whereas the normal Joker is murderously crazy, Joker is rather harmless, choosing to gag out his opponents rather then exchange blows. Also, the Gotham Police Department doesn't admit it publicly, but they are just puppets, pawns of the Bat. And, once he learns of super-powered beings elsewhere, and realizing that they might ruin the perfect "utopia" he created, he goes out and makes his own powered beings, the Outsiders. They think they all got their powers on accident, but really Batman spent months watching and observing the various citizens, taking notes on who would be able to handle whatever powers and various mutations, etc, then went out and intentionally mutated these select individuals, and trained them to fight as a team, in case someone like Superman or Green Lantern stuck their nose in his business. Also, just a fun detail, Batman has a condition where he never sleeps. That's how he can spend all day just watching every person in Gotham, on top of keeping his body at the top, and patrol nightly once he sees suspicious activity. Booyah.

When Bruce Waynes parents are murdered. He takes matters into his own hands. Without the figure of Bruces Father to guide the city. Crime takes a rambid hold on the city. The Waynes murderer was let go from any prison sentence thorugh a sereis of bribes and favours to jugdes and police.

At the age of 18 Wayne took matters into hi own hands. His butler all but up and left after he and Bruce had a massive argument and Alfred walked out. Bruce shot down his parents killer in a bar in down town Gotham. Falcome , The largest mob boss in the city, was upset ofcourse as the man had worked for him for many years, Falcone was able to get into Bruces mind and get him to work for him as a hitman.

Wayne did well under Falcone. starting as hitman he worked his way up to his second in Command. Together they had worked the city. Untill a new hitman gave bruce information that Falcone had his parens murdered. When Bruce heard of this he went to Falcones appartment and shot him point blank, no talking no nothing. Wayne was able to ride the murder out, setting it up as a suicide. DA Harvey Dent working hard to shut the mobs down along with a new police commisiner, Gordan.

Bruce was king of Gotham now. Controling his fathers company he had neglected for so many years, he bought up all the shares thourgh intimidation and murder. Bruce used Wayne Corp to ship in Drugs and weapons to fuel his empire, but still mantained the public front of a clean public friendly company.

Bruce was getting trouble off Gordan and dent. They were tarneshing the look of Wayne Corp. He Captured Gordans duaghter Barbera, teling Gordan hed give her back when he stopped mesing up his plans. Bruce kept Barbera close, she was only 5 when she was taken and with the police force under his thunb Gordan stood no chance of getting her back.

AS for Dent, Bruce was able to get files from his psycholigist that spoke about scitsophrenia. Wayne had them leakes and Dent was sacked and his public image ruined. He commited suicde several weeks later. Gordan was all was killed after the death of Dent. Barbra never knew.

Bruces state of health went down hill. He was over weight and never exercised. But always had an ontorage and a gun nearby. He trained Barbera as his second. Wayne also had the likes of Jack and timm Drake working for him and also the would be Joker.

Waynes interest spreaded outside of Gotham and soon wanderd to Metropilis. He began doing buisness with Lex Luthor. This alerted the hero Superman who began to take an interest in clening up Gotham. Bruce didnt aprove. He had people planted all over gotham. Barbra Gorden was placed in the Daily Planet with orders to tarnish Superman. Here she met and befriended Lois Lane. Waynes plans were often foiled by Superman from his involvement with LEx Luthor and so Wayne pulled out of these plans and buisness dealings.

no one knows how it happened but it did. Barbra Gorden came to Wayne telling him Lane was Supermans wife. Bruces reaction was to laugh at the fact that Superman was cheating on the wife of Clark Kent the paper pusher at the Daily Planet. Then he made the connection.

After another buisness deal was struck down, Wayne lost it. he had Lans Captured and brought to him. Superman soon arrived. He told him everything ahe knew who he was, and shot Lane. Superman punched Wayne and his head came clean off. Wayne died there with Lane on the floor, bullet in her head, the greiving superman over her.

Superman cracked down on crime, HARD. He wasnt taking any Sh*t form no one. He forced confessions out of all the gang members taking the law into his own hands. Superman became more feared then anything else. Clark Kent all but disapeared when Wayne told the world. and Superman only remained.

this was on Batman, I liked the way Superman become more like Batman in the end.

Unfortunately, I had to go with the Batman, a severely popular character, as I don't know enough about the rest of the DC Universe...it also sucks that I couldn't find a way to fit in Robin...

ROCstar. Tyroc is a member of a community of Africans kidnapped to be slaves, but they revolted on the slave ship dispatched their slavers to the briny deep and setled on a small island paradise. All was going well the island had plenty of natural resources and grottos and lagoons never seen on earth, but unbeknownst to TYroc and his newly established community the island was beacon employed by the nefarious forces of Apokilips in an attempt to retrieve the Anti-life equation. The island was actually in flux because it was in a retarded boom tube. Slowly falling out of phase with the earth's material frequency. The whole process took around 200 years but the community were preserved as was the Island as if not even a day had passed.What did grow was the community's culture and spectacularly their own personal abilities grew into the range of superhuman. Tyroc was one of the most adept at using his powers and even has the distinct honor of being the islands champion. When the island materialized in tight orbit of Apokilips Tyroc used his source-given voice to rectivate the trace radiation of the boom tube returning it to its point of origin on earth. With his quantum frequency voice, and blessed with perfect pitch, Tyroc battled an Apokilips convoy led by Kalibak to a standstill until Darkseid himself seeming disentegrated him with a long range omega beam. Back in the slave pins of Apokolips Tyroc endured unbearable torment and draconian training. He was fitted with a obedience collar that inhibited his quantum singing.days turned to months and those to years until Tyroc who excelled in his military training led a frontline attack against New Genisis's recently "bug" inhabited orbiting organic sattelite.But the strike was expected and Orion and his war party met Tyroc's platoon in the sky. In combat Tyroc's platoon was no competition against the Dog of War Orion. But his obedience collar was destroyed during the melee. With the destruction of the obedience collar Tyroc's repressed personality resurfaced as did a reality warping howl that sent the already displaced Tyroc in not only a different sector of the universes but in a different era. Found falling into artificial atmosphere by the Legion of Super Heroes he was rescued resucitated and adopted into the Super team's collective family. After perusing the Legion's vast databases Tyroc decided to the codename Rocstar because his name is Tyroc and he was identified first as a falling star by the Legion survielance tower, and more importantly he realised his powers are activated when he sings, and he sings like Prince of the 21st century a consumate Rock Star. Tyroc longing to find out what happened to his displaced people searched the legion's database and is still looking. Powers: TYrocs time adrift in the lagged boom tube allowed for he and his people to absorb radiation from being in close proximity to the Source. Tyroc or Rocstar has the ability to reproduce quantum energy signals by intuiting a desired phenomenas quantum frequency (perfect pitch. Aaaaaaand scene...:)
