@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.

There's once was a man named Allen Vogt born in East Germany as a homeless boy from adulthood. He was abandoned as a child at the age of 6 due to his mental disabilities, he was diagnosed with mild fragile x at the age of 4, by the time he reached 5, his parents filed for divorce and with his mother without already about to lose everything including her child abandoned him in hopes of him being adopted.

Living a daily life as a hermit scavaging scraps from 3 day-old leftovers. He has grown much more accustomed to this lively who as pass by giving him look of disgust, but these do not bother him. As long as everyone is happy he is not bothered by it at all and tends to help those in need despite the condition.

Through his 40 years of being homeless he never has thought of making a family or wasn't sure about the livelihood of having a normal life. Though between those years he has accumulated multiple skillsets. Without and proper education being taught to him, he taught himself to write by reading the words on newspapers and comparing them to pictures next to them, he gradually begun sounding those words out, in fact, this is how he learned to right in french after attaining a french artificial and listening to french radio through his lifetime.

It was so uncanny that he wrote himself a 50-page article about the things he had seen as a through his daily life, with newspaper level writing so well written you'd think it was written by a typewriter but his uncanny skills in literature allowed him to not only write pretty well but write out his own imaginations.

When one of the books that he left was founded by an individual on a bench word got out and till this day, his book became a hit and was localized throughout the world with its vast fame, came great popularity, but unfortunately, he wasn't credited, it was the guy who found the book that took all the credit to himself, and to make it worst he was completely unaware of this.

Superpowers

Great writing skills, vast knowledge in self-learning despite his disability, and perfect handwriting.

Weakness

His disability, most weakness a normal human would have.

I can continue this story if you want.

Who Isn't Human?
========================================================

Humans have finally discovered alien life. Contrary to most conspiracy theorists' thoughts, however, they aren't technologically advanced, and they aren't widespread: Only 382 planets have life, and 73% of those planets harbor no intelligent life. Humans become the ruler of all those planets with their new weapons of mass destruction, which have the ability to become more focused than a laser while carrying more force than any weapon bar a high yield nuke. After centuries, people start having questions: Are these aliens any less human than us? Do they deserve our rights? Are they worth saving? It becomes a controversial topic comparable to the likes of slavery, abortion, and equality, and it is split between people how these intelligent life forms, and even the unintelligent, should be regarded. Just like all the other repressed people, these aliens start up a movement. They just want to be regarded as having the same right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that all humans have.

One leading figure of this movement, from the planet X15-7ER, more colloquially known as "Chrustamone," is Pol'ewn T'osselau. You can think of him as the MLKJ of the movement, while the Malcolm X would be from the planet Earth itself, O'Shae Parker. These two had built together the very first orphanage for all races, but their divide on the subject of how far is too far in this case has become a detriment to the orphanage, and when O'Shae eventually leaves the orphanage, it falls apart without his founding, resulting in many children becoming homeless. One of the workers at the orphanage, from JL9-992, colloquially known as "Equarmina," the pacifist Dwer Jimanail, decides she wants to go and gather together all these children so she can keep them safe from the coming war that she is informed O'Shae is ready to start against his own race. And she gets lucky enough that she comes across two of the kids at a moment that will no doubt be historical.

Natalie Trenk
========================================================

Aspen Matthews. This is about the closest character to her looks, clothing aside
Aspen Matthews. This is about the closest character to her looks, clothing aside

Fugportamolanza LIV
========================================================

Aquamarine, scaly upper body with slimy lower body, four-legged, black claws. He's got ten eyes, but they are all blurry, so he has special contacts. About 14 feet long with a 3 foot tail that has a ball on the end. A gold necklace around the neck area.

These two had the best of best friend relationships at the orphanage, so them being together was all but expected for Dwer. What she didn't expect, though, was to see that Natalie had superpowers. Apparently, Fug's species (Planet 82P-E7E, Docilofod,) had kept a secret from every race, that being their ability to tap into a magical force known as Ability by the Docilofodians, which was thought by humans to be some wack religion. Not everyone could do it; similar to how not everyone on Earth can train to 26 mph or a 500 lb bench, not everyone on 82P-E7E can have the Ability. Fug got lucky. Because of this, he can grant someone else a blessing tenfold what he sacrifices (for oneself, they can only get half of what they sacrifice,) so by sacrificing all his super sharp teeth, Fug was able to grant Natalie the power to tap into the Ability, with potential for growth. Natalie fully agrees with Dwer on the fact that Pol'ewn has the right stance, but Fug thinks differently; he believes that O'Shae has the more pragmatic idea, whether it is morally right or not. Basically, he's got an idea of who he leans towards, even if he hates it. It doesn't matter though, since the whole point is keeping them and others safe.

Natalie's Statistics

Height: 5'9

Weight: 183 lbs

Hair Color: Black

Eye Color: Green

Strength: Somewhere in the 500-700 lb range without the Ability.

Speed: Runs 19 mph, can't fight much faster than a regular human without the Ability.

Durability: Not high without the Ability.

Likes: People, debating, critical thinking.

Dislikes: Technology, the day time, being alone.

Power: By tapping into the Ability, Natalie can summon on unprecedented power that makes most human weapons look cute in comparison. Even when first beginning and without proper control, she can flip cars and become thousands of times faster, stronger and tougher. At "EoS," she can destroy mountain peaks and control nature itself.

Fug's Statistics

Height: 14 ft

Weight: 450 kg

Eye Color: White

Strength: 900 kg.

Speed: Casual arrow timer.

Durability: Bulletproof to small caliber.

Likes: Sleeping. That's basically it.

Dislikes: A lot. He's not exactly the happiest.

Power: A stronger connection to the Ability than "BoS" Natalie, and even by the end he's more versatile.

Dwer's Statistics

Height: 5'6

Weight: 143 lbs

Hair Color: Crimson

Eye Color: Black

Strength: Multi-tonner.

Speed: Bullet timer.

Durability: Small building level.

Likes: Peace, reading, children.

Dislikes: Violence.

Power: Better physicals than anyone else that isn't her race.

The Streets of Solemn

In the country of Das on the world of Noitome, the main authority is split among 3 different branches/peoples.

  • Sorcerers
  • Technopaths
  • Strongmen

Those who are Sorcerers/Sorceresses have the ability to perform magic using their chi, which allows them to do many things, such as control the elements, weather, and the human mind itself. These are considered the most powerful of the branches. The Chieftan of Sorcerers, Allu Truckmon, is the most politically powerful man in the country. He is so skilled in his craft that he can cause volcanoes to erupt from miles away.

Technopaths are the rarest of the bunch. They can easily hack into all technology and make their own from the most minor parts. Many of them become cyborgs. The Leader of Technopaths, Henray Lorotro, is arguably more directly powerful than Truckmon, capable of vaporizing mountain ranges with nothing but the strength of his laser cannon.

Strongmen focus primarily on their physical bodies. Even the weaker Strongmen are capable of lifting multiple tons with nothing but a finger, running up walls, and surviving massive falls unaided. The Highest of Strongmen, Orduman Thrish, is so strong that he was able to lift a whole island on his back to save his family from a natural disaster.

Not too rare lately are cross breeds between the peoples. One such person is Jesse Waltworth, a young adult who has the combined powers of a Strongman and a Technopath, though this makes him weaker in both than one who would have just a single ability. His dream is to join Authority, but because he's a cross breed, he's not allowed since he would have more power than a Sole Soul, those with just one. It's his mission to convince people that there needs to be a chance for cross breeds to become that politically powerful.

On the planet of Puss in the continent of Smeg, there is a 3 Caste system that the majority of people fall into.

Warlocks

Scientists

Physicalists

The Warlocks can do magic using their Ki which allows them to do many things, such as burn things on touch, warp time, and achieve amazing martial feats. This is the most powerful caste. The Head Warlock, Beardy, Holds all the political power man On the continent. His power as a Warlock is unmatched and he can make a whole village full of physicals die with his Ki connection.

Scientists are the least common Caste to be born into. They can easily infiltrate all technology and make their own from the most minor parts. Many of them become cyborgs. The Boss of Scientists, Mustachios, is arguably more directly powerful than Beardy, capable of warping time and space.

Physicals focus primarily on their strong bodies. Even the weaker Physicals are capable of lifting multiple tons with nothing but a finger, running up walls, and surviving massive falls unaided. The Hero King of The physicals, Pithair, is so strong that he was able to pick up a mountain and use it to plug up a volcano in order to save his ant colony from destruction

There is a forth caste - Losers. One such person is Jeffery Wobbly, a young adult who has the combined powers of a Normal human and he and his kind live in squalor.. His dream is to join all the castes and he works harder than anyone on the continent , he does weights every day and reads books and practices martial arts. but because he's a normal human he's not allowed since he would have no power unlike A true caste member. It's his mission to convince people that there needs to be a chance for normals to become a political power.
