@xegod: This would be better in the Fan-Fic forum, and even then, what's the point of making one?

Zacharias Vermillion was never the most introverted man in the room. Born with a special genetic condition, which came to be known commonly as the "Se-Vermillion Disease," his brain and muscles would commonly perform different actions. For example, when he would try and write a word, he'd end up drawing, or when he tried to speak, he'd sing. Scientists, interested in this mental disorder, took Zacharias and studied his brain functions. At first, they were convinced they'd seen half his brain gone, though after careful study, they discovered it was actually a jet black substance that had infected Zacharias' brain.

As they were examining the alien substance, the scientists discovered that the substance was shifting back and forth through Vermillion's right and left sides. When they revealed this information to Zacharias, he asked for brain surgery to remove it. Thanks to prosperous wealth, the scientists were given enough money for it, but as they tried to touch the substance, it snaked its way forward and covered half of Zacharias' face, making it appear as if half his face was flat. After nearly a year of continuous research, they discovered that it was Vantablack, which had somehow been implanted into his body at a late stage of Vermillion's third trimester.

Throughout Vermillion's social life afterwards, he discovered that the Vantablack was quasisentient. It could move on its own, blocking bullets, breaking guns, and taking down escaping criminals. Because of this, Zacharias became a hot topic for all politicians, and eventually there wasn't a single person not debating what we should do with him. He was offered billions of dollars to be experimented on, but he only trusted the original scientific team which had discovered this.

With help from these scientists, Zacharias was implanted with a special mechanism after five years of living with half his face "gone." This allowed him to bond with the Vantablack, and control it. He then used this power to protect the innocent for all his days.

Spain. 1960s. Capital city.

In Madrid, during the spanish dictatorship, a grotesquely deformed child was born. He was half raised in a laboratory in which dictator Francisco Franco had his bests and maddests scientst triying to come up with the ultimate genetic breaktrough. The next step in human evolution: A man with all the best of both worlds, men and animals.

But this chimera boy was not above men. He seemed to be below. No more than a half made beast, much less than a human. He wass discarded. Executed and thrown aside.

But he did not die. He survived and wondered confused through a maze of sewers out into a rural landscape. For weeks he survived as he could, eating what he could find, sleeping on the ground, like the animal he seemed to be.

One day the daughter of a farmer found him. She wasn't sure what he was, but the gentle eyes of the beast made her feel compassion and she took him inn. For several year he helped her father in his Dary Farm, working with the animals, cleening, feeding and doing whatever was asked of him. There the half-boy grew to feel almost human.

But one day a squad of "El Generalisimo" dictator Francisco Franco came to the farm, accused the farmer of offering shelter to the rebels of the civil war and burned the farm to the grownd.

That day the half-boy sweared to fight the dictatorial regime. He took on the name of Bull-Man and fought in the night to defend the inocent.

...

To put a refference, Bullman is like a superpowered Robin Hood, with the body of a beast, set in Spain, during the Civil War and World War II.

Powers and abilities:

- Superstrength

- Enhanced Speed

- Healing Factor

- Enhanced Senses: Sight. Hearing. Smell.

His nemesis, of course, is The Matador. A ruthless super-soldier of the regime.

@xegod: I think you could pick a winner out of every 5 or 10 posts, that way you keep us incentivated.

You could also EDIT each winning Superhero's name to the OP to give extra recognition.

That's if this thread gets the attention it deserves and we get some interesting backstories.

@cocacolaman: So, does your hero still has half his face gone? And what's his superhero name? Does he still confuse writing with drawing or talking with singing, or is he normal now that he controls the Vantablack?

@buckwheat: 1. Yes.

2. His superhero name is the Vanta-Million.

3. The Vantablack still stays hooked to his brain when he controls it, so yes, he does still confus these things. It’s a significant deterrence in his superhero career and causes people to wonder if he should even be a hero, since his condition could have him kill the civilians he tries to save. In a way, Zach and the Vantablack control each other.

I like the historical background to the history and the fact that the hero is a monstruosity whereas the villain is hero-looking. Sort of like a Frankensteinish character.

I would give it a read if it came out in comics.

Kyle Huyen was once a fairly average teenager. After graduating high-school, he and a group of friends decided to make one final trip together, before parting ways and heading off to their respective colleges. It was supposed to be a adventure in which they rented a cabin in the woods. Of course, things didn't exactly go as planned.

Between the cult, a book bound in human skin, and corpses coming to life; their vacation turned out to be quite the disaster. Suffice to say, Kyle did not survive this incident.

During the climax of this little slasher flick, the resident "Final Girl" managed to use the book to bring him back to life. Together, they successfully defeated the cult and seemingly managed to destroy the reanimated corpses.

After this, the two of them agreed to part ways and move on with their lives.

It was after this incident, that Kyle began to realize his body was undergoing certain... changes... The sun, made him feel weak and sickly. His wounds would rapidly regenerate. People would subconsciously ignore him, as if being too still and silent would make people almost not remember his presence. He could sense fear and more importantly, being around fear made him stronger and faster.

After stopping a mugging on a whim, he decided... why not make this into a hobby?

Powers and Abilities:

  • He has no mental limiter and thus can push his strength to their limits at the price of his bones breaking, muscles tearing, and ligaments snapping.
  • He has a supernatural lack of presence, due to his undead nature.
  • He can sense fear and is physically empowered by it.
  • He is also, completely immortal.

Weaknesses:

  • Sunlight makes him feel sick and frail. Extended exposure can leave him almost akin to a shambling zombie.
  • He's weak to forms of magic and magic items meant for combating undead.
  • Without a source of fear to feed on, he's not much stronger than an athletic human.

Think of him as Kick-Ass with slasher villain powers.

His rogues gallery consist of:

  • A Michael Myers-esque slasher villain, with the same abilities as Kyle. By killing people at the height of their fear, the physical empowerment becomes permanent, and thus this villain is significantly stronger than Kyle.
  • A psychopathic Hit-man who is incapable of feeling fear.
  • A mysterious bogeyman-like figure with vast telekinetic and telepathic powers, who may or may not have been responsible for writing the spell-book responsible for Kyle's powers.
