Artlords is hardly a stranger to the super hero genre.
We had a showcase in super powered ‘power armor‘ heroes.
We saw some cyberpunk/parody inspired a new type of heroes.
We showcased Carlos Dattoli cute fat heroes.
We even had tons of marvel and dc comics galleries.
So what’s new?
Original content, that’s what. In the following post, we will be creating four characters based on four pieces of art that were uploaded to the website. Feel free to do the same! Let your imagination soar.
Full Name: Joshua DeColt
Codename: Elemental Weapon
Power set: Elemental Manipulation, Elemental Combination
Description: Once a soldier, now a freelancer with a conscience, Joshua DeColt sees himself as a force of nature, a freak. And he wouldn’t be off. With powers to create and manipulate the four elements, he is a one man army, know to appear on the battlefield without warning and wiping out the conflict. Human life doesn’t even phase Joshua anymore, his body, language, and mind has all been weaponized at this point.
Yet there is a lament on his destruction. A tear shed by the fallen as he moves over to the next war. Even if he doesn’t acknowledge his humanity, it is there, somewhere.
Origin story: A Canadian patriot who was offered to be experimented on by a private mercenary company know only as “Freelancer”, Joshua DeColt barely had twenty-five years when he started to move fire with his sheer will. Trained to be the perfect soldier, the experiment was more than just adding powers to a soldier. It was about refining a soldier from a human shell, creating a machine of flesh and energy and point it out to the next mission. And they have apparently succeeded. Joshua is brainwashed, alone and perfect.
Current Where about: In a covert battlefield near you.
Bird of Prey
Full Name: Tamina Cruz
Codename: The Bird of Prey
Power set: Regular human with a gadget set
Description: A silent whirlwind of violence and justice, The Bird of Prey has shown up in humanitarian crisis, terrorism cases and gang conflict throughout the world, trying to disarm and escalate down the conflict by taking key targets with her array of strange gadgets.

Origin story: Tamina was the total package. She had the field experience that the “Freelancer” looked for its minions but she also had a very creative mind and was able to push the research and the development of the Mercenary Company to its limit.

When she started to find out about that most conflicts the “Freelancer” company was invovled was fabricated by them in secret and that they ran human experiments, Tamina stole their bleeding edge tech and decided to try to fix the wrongs caused by her own reckless ambition.
