Slapperfish's Spectacular Selection of Superheroes

Well I figured with everyone else posting their own character rosters, I may as well hop on the bandwagon (better late than never!), leave the procrastination station, and showcase my rather expansive and... colorful... character roster.

Be warned, I've got a lotta toons!

...So, without further ado, by no demand at all, here's Slapperfish's Spectacular Selection of Superheroes!

Slapperfish - A lungfish altered by an "evolutionary acceleration process" developed by "Project Darwin". The experiment worked; perhaps too well. Bearing proper limbs for land movement, astounding strength, speed, childlike intelligence, and the ability to speak, Slapperfish has certainly become a memorable hero to many a citizen in Millennium City.


Mashy the Speeding Train - Built in the 1920's by a dastardly engineer known as The Electric Conductor (who met his end by his creation's hand, but was succeeded by a lineage of supervillains carrying the same title), Mashy the Speeding Train is a reckless, nearly unstoppable brute who is much, MUCH faster than his immense size and bulk would have you to believe.


Junkbot - Built by a homeless hero known simply as Junkman, Junkbot once served as a trusty sidekick, loyal companion, and stunt double. After Junkman's sudden and mysterious disappearance, Junkbot has become independent and already has made a name for itself. Able to utilize any piece of junk as a tool or weapon, and with the ability to inexplicably rebuild itself whenever it's destroyed, Junkbot is incredibly resourceful, resilient, and reliable for any task you program him for.


Earthworm v3.0 - Junkbot's pet earthworm, augmented with cybernetic limbs and injected with a regenerative superserum. Small enough to squeeze through any crevice and able to burrow through solid concrete at a whopping 10 miles an hour, Earthworm v3.0 often serves as a reconnaissance unit of sorts.

    Desperate Housefly - She often gets infatuated with gardeners when they're around. The gardeners often get the bugzapper when she's around.


    Nerf Bat - A special species of bat, able to pick up the sonar vibrations of broken-as-hell powers and strike them down so hard that they become near useless. But who nerfs the Nerf Bat?


    James Grond - A once suave secret agent, mutated into a not-so-suave, not-so-secret agent by nuclear radiation. May or may not be responsible for the horrid influx of Grond jokes that get tossed around in Zone chat.


    Easter Island Ned - Unbeknownst to tourists and many archaeologists, Moai Island statues have bodies. However, so much time as passed that the bodies have become buried in the dirt and lost all sense of movement. Ned, however, was an ecxeption, and decided to leave the island because "Ned need vacation".

    OH GOD NOT THE BEES - An orphaned bumblebee, found and raised by honeybees, Burt quickly became the laughing stock of the hive as he grew older. When the time came, he learned of his true heritage, but only moments before the hive came under attack by some deranged human wearing a bear suit. Saving his hive by constantly stinging the man with his non-barbed stinger (since he's a bumblebee), the other bees were forever in his debt and now offer their assistance to him in defending the world beyond the hive.


    Alpha Raptor - A vicious, cunning, feathery dinosaur that should never be underestimated, both in combat and the intelligence department.


    Jailhouse Rock - A big, brutish felon with a rocky hide, a mean left hook, and a vendetta against the New Purple Gang and anyone affiliated with them.


    Illegal Alien - After crash-landing onto Earth and being captured against his will by VIPER agents in Area 51, this little alien salvaged parts from his ship, built a small personal hovercraft, a universal translator, and an array of weapons, and escaped from VIPER's clutches.

    Hot Dog - A hellhound with good taste in fashion and an odd taste for burger condiments.


    Slapstick Slippy - When a freak accident involving bleach, black ink and vanishing cream transformed revolutionary cartoonist Andy Mater into his own real-life cartoon character, he decided to use his hilarious arsenal of antics to save the world. For some reason.


    Master Chef - He can flip a tank as easily as he can flip burgers.


    S.T.O.P. Lite - A recent upgrade from the old bulky S.T.O.P. Classic, the Lite model proves to be a much more streamlined and efficient solution to traffic, trafficking, and travesties transorted by transgressors.

    Brass Monkey - That clunky monkey.




    Manswatter - A mutated housefly roughly the size of a large dog. There's certainly good reason to be scared of this thing.


    Gordo Stuckman - Abducted by aliens and injected by an odd mass-increasing serum, former theoretical physicist Gordo Stuckman became so heavy that the spaceship had trouble leaving Earth's atmosphere and crashlanded. White Plateau came across the ill-fated fatman, and built him a powersuit able to contain his incredible mass. Aside from an array of nifty guns and gadgets, Gordo also wields the "Crowcoabar" a crowbar with chocolate bars crudely strapped to it for some weird reason.

    Benjamin Franklinstein - Founding father, inventor, author, and now, unholy abomination back from the dead.


    Teddy Weapons
    - A Russian grizzly bear, captured and subject to inhumane tests by Soviet scientists. After a single doctor showed him compassion, giving him a gatling gun and a teddy bear as friendly gifts (and being murdered by his colleagues for his sympathy), the bear broke free from his holding pen, gunned down his captors and set off elsewhere.


    Tick-Tock - A robotic clock whose attacks and movements are all chronologically synchronized, right down to the exact second. According to Tick-Tock, it's always time for justice.


    POTT-E - A giant, mechanized porcelain construct, able to spew nauseous septic fluid stored in its belly.

    Pink Elephant - Don't drink and fight crime. Trust me.

    Booster Rooster - A rooster with a powersuit and plasma sword. How exactly does that make any sense? I dunno. Try asking the hippo cosplaying as a firetruck.


    Hippopotamus Prime
    - Yeah, he doesn't know how, either. He doesn't even know how to take his lame costume off.


    Oggthar Flounderfist - A technologically-inclined orc that certainly doesn't mess around. I mean, just LOOK at that mechanical bear-trap arm.


    Henry the Deaf Bard
    - If Beethoven can make music, why can't he? No one knows for certain.

    Old Jimber-Jaw - A caveman that was frozen in ice and thawed out by scientists who happened across him. He's out to prove he's not a modern Stone-Age novelty.


    Rainbow Trout - This prismatic piscine perforates pesky perpetrators with powerful paranormal projectiles.


    Penguin - A superpowered penguin originally hailing from Paragon City, Penguin decided his heroic efforts and tailoring skills could be used elsewhere.


    Vlad the Impala - This bloodthirsty tyrant was infamous for torturing his own citizens and impaling them atop spears on the outskirts of his country, simply to ward off leopards, cheetahs, and lions.

    Don't Fear the Creeper - That's a nice life you've got ahead of you. Would be a shame if something were to end it early...


    Mothership Rat - Similar to wharf rats on Earth, space vermin will often sneak onboard alien ships, hoard the food storages, and colonize other planets.


    Hangman - A hateful, badly-drawn stick figure that came to life and jumped off the paper after he was nearly hanged by children playing "a harmless word game".


    Data Miner - A two-dimensional, 8-bit video game character who, normally tasked with saving his beloved Princess Pixel from the evil clutches of Browser, was transported into our three-dimensional world by the Komputa King himself during their previous encounter.

    "Peep" - The accidental result of a horrible, confectionery microwaving experiment gone from bad to worse, "Peep" is a monstrous, living abomination of sugary sweetness. By changing the shape, consistency, and mass of its body, it can leap skyscrapers, smash through solid concrete, and hide inside candy shops and Easter Baskets with very little effort.


    Dragonfly - Some sort of bizarre, fire-breathing reptilian-insectoid hybrid. Is it the product of science or some magical familar conjured up by some master of the arcane? We'll probably never know.


    Clockwork Orange - A once-headless robot who mistook an orange for its missing head. Not sure how that's possible, but whatever.


    Porter - A small, strange, inter-dimensional alien, adept at causing mischief and messing with his victims' minds via teleportation.

    Grondpappy - What's that, sonny? Speak up! Grond doesn't have ears...


    Renegade Black Talon Unit BT-000 - After the Black Talon project disbanded, many of the ex-pilots either turned themselves in or turned their services over to other villainous groups. BT-000, on the other hand, decided to turn over a new leaf and use his military combat skills and mechanical suit to protect Millnenium City and beyond.


    Fish Out of Water - A fish in a fishbowl in a robotic suit. Out of water.


    Ichabod Crane - After nearly getting his own head cut off by the Headless Horse, Ichabod decided enough was enough and left the Sleepy Hollow in search of greener pastures. Or something like that.

    X-25 Winterwallop Security Bot - A giant festive robot programmed to save Christmas when it needs saving the most: During the other 364 days of the year. It also doubles as a hot chocolate dispenser.


    The Mad Hat - In some parallel timeline of the classic Alice in Wonderland "story", the Mad Hatter used the untold powers of his sentient magical hat to dethrone the Queen of Hearts and take over Wonderland. The hat, wanting to rid himself of his wearer, used his powers to seal his former wearer away and teleport itself far away from Wonderland. A homeless man eventually came across the hat and agreed to wield its powers for the sake of good.


    Cluckwork - A robotic chicken that lays square eggs. Yeah. And you didn't think that was even possible.

    Phlogiston - A steampunk construct able to project destructive gouts of flame.


    Fassad the Friendly - An evil, interstellar overlord masquerading as a guy in his underwear. Do not question Fassad's method for world domination!


    Tectonyx - Although he may look like a hulking, headless metal monster, Tectonyx is actually a small, extremely timid creature hiding inside a golem-like, organic metal "suit". With it, he can harness the power of the very earth itself to repel attackers.


    Impus - A king among his people, he was suddenly brought into our world by a malevolent sorcerer. He now seeks a way back to his home-realm.

    Forest's Edge - Nearly slain in battle and preserved for eons underneath the shade of an enchanted oak tree harboring Mother Nature's presence, this valiant knight awoke to ARGENT goons cutting down the very thing that saved him. Wielding the remains of the felled oak tree like a living suit of armor, he seeks to protect the natural beauty of this world from those who wish to defile what's left of it.


    Assaultin' Battery - A small-yet-powerful robot able to wield both positive and negative charges of electricity at close-quarters to devastating effect.


    Owl on a Treant - Pretty much self-explanatory.


    Close-up of the head... Err, owl.

    Arcanis Lupus - Albus Lindon, a proud member of the Trismegistus Council, nearly lost his humanity one evening after a high-ranking Dogz member known as Willy "Jowls" Joelson bit him, transforming him into a werewolf. Unwilling to fully succumb to lycanthropy, he traveled to a pocket dimension to isolate himself the outside world. There, he began to control the beast within through a combination of discipline, arcane practices, and readily available food sources.


    And here's his human form:

    Oh My God! You're costumes are FRIGGIN' AMAZING!
    Your Costumes give the illusion of another image. Making it look more epic!

    I like the T-Wrecks, Owl on a Treant, Fassad the Friendly,
    Fish out of water, porter, and Headless Chicken. The thought you put in them is pretty entertaining!^^

    You have quite a creative mind there, my friend. Keep up the great work! Can't wait to see what else you come up with. :D

    I've long been a fan of yours, man. Whenever I see a totally crazy looking toon at a costume contest based on some ridiculous pun, I just know that I'll find your name in the @ tag. You've easily got some of the most creative (read: insane) costumes I have ever seen.

    Fassad the Friendly had me laughing for a good minute or so.

    The Charatcter Creator is Slapper's personal *****. Yup. That's right. Zed used the "B" word so better pay attention.

    None but he could conjure a Fish Out of Water or Ichabod Crane. None but he has ever had the patience or guile to conjure a Fassad the Friendly which is a visual masterpiece. Both James Grond and Grondpappy are pure fun. But anyone who is dedicated to a hero enough to spin out this YT trailer should have the right to say, "This is my Best/Fav hero right here."

    ...now with even more Slapper goodness than ever before.
