    Okay, protip for those making homages to CoH:

    We didn't all play CoH. And some of us who did couldn't get past how, well, powerless our "supers" felt at low levels. (My lightning-based character was supposed to use electricity, not one zap and then start punching while his actual power was on cooldown.) So you might want to say what you're homaging, because I for one had no clue with that Clockwork and Fr34k5h0w bit.

    Yeah, that whole (*zzot* punchpunchpunchpunchpunchpunch *zzot*) cooldowns thing is what killed my interest in that game almost immediately.

    Let's make sure this doesn't start to turn into either a pro or anti CoX thread.

    Just post homages, but make sure you reference the inspiration behind them.

    Saying my toon Nepht is a Megaman homage I better post her picture here.

    An old pic Caliga took years ago when we first met pretty much shows Nepht in all her Megaman'ish glory.

    I was undercutting the prices of his cosmic keys in the auction house and he did a recon to see who was doing it >:D

    Here is a character I made who is an homage to both Magical Girls and Mega Man

    And this is Beez, my gun toting earth bound demon who takes most of her inspiration from the likes of Hellboy.

    Major Tatyana Orlova, a.k.a. Soviet Girl, a.k.a. Zvezda, a WWII Russian fighter pilot, who's also a cosmic powered brawler with supersonic flight powers.

    Figured I'll do an alternate modern costume for her.


    Geode is what you can get if you kitbash DC Terra I and III together. Except older than a teenager.

    Mr. Impossible
    The Malleable Man of Science
    Dr. James Adams was once a scientist for UNTIL for their modern technology division.
    He developed a machine that distilled cosmic radiation from unknown origins that would allow others to travel to distant planets to search for life.
    Unbeknownst to the laboratory workers, the radiation had leaked into the open air and everyone was forced to evacuate except Adams who risked his own life to shut down the machine.
    The radiation exposure altered his genetics and have him the ability to stretch impossibly like rubber!
    He went on to become a hero devoted to advancing modern medicine and science and traveling into the unknown to help defend the defenseless from danger as...
    Mr. Impossible!

    Stonebender, following a mental attack by an aberrant Qularr, was left with bizarre powers and dissociative identity disorder. Over time this has manifested in him taking on multiple personae - here are some.

    Seriously digging the concept here, and some of those costumes are simply outstanding. Reminds me of Captain Trips in a good way.

    203865747460c8d15d50a14e6b869145_zpsqnkajuhu.jpg My Daredevil Inspiration.

    Here is the origin

    Born to Asian parents, and was up in the higher area of middle class. He liked to watch reality type TV shows. As a traveling parent his father took his son with him to Japan and learned many things there. Once they figured out his son was color blind they had something specially developed for him that would improve his sight of color. It was originally a visor meant to help the blind see again, but it was reprogramed to help his eyes restructure. As of now he can only see about fifteen colors.

    Two more weeks later his father wanted him to take martial arts classes since he'd watch videos about it on TV all the time. It was a slow process training, but enough to help Colin in life. After the trip they came back and continued with their lives in America. Graduating from High School, Colin wanted to become a cop and help people and get rid of criminals. He went to school again and finished. He knew about vigilantes and knew they had to be stops, but he himself became one when he witness an Indian civilian getting beaten for no reason. He stopped it, but not in time and took a few cuts to the chest. He had al of this dark anger in him like the world was just chaos(which it is right now in my opinion in some places). He went back to Japan and was away from the city of Vibora for three years. Woe there a spirt came to him and made an agreement and said he wanted to same thing like Yin did. Only this spirit didn't believe in killing, but brutal type fights he did. So the pact was made, and he gained powers from it. He came back, but he and his family moved to Millennium City. He already knew there was a lot of crime here and decided to do something about it. Since he knew there was peace and chaos at the same time going on in the world, he decided to call himself Yin Yang. His suit would be made of cloth and leather, but it wasn't suitable enough to protect him from bullets and such. He's only alive from resurging his chi overtime.


    He began to develop his own rouges gallery of villains as soon as a building in Westside was blown up by one of the mean of Sledge Hammer, also an enemy of Killer Spider. He and Yin saved some civilians, but not all. The others were either burned or stabbed with arrows. The man with the arrows blew up a police car killing or injuring few cops. He took some arrows to the chest and legs and ended up being a bloody piece of crap. The other guy looked worse though after he was finished by Yin with his Batons. He wasn't dead, no, he was just in a coma. He meet other heroes during the calamity crisis. After calamity, he went back to his search of Sledge Hammer. He ran to Jersey due to the calamity event thinking he would die. He hired a mercenary to fight and kill Yin. His arm got pierced by Yin. Yin and Sledge square off, but Sledge is winning. Just as Yin gets the upper hand he's caught in an explosion but manages to swing away. He is found half dead by his friend Reilly and taken to the hospital. Sledge Hammer was found only to be burnt himself. Yin didn't care if he was brutally burned, he just cared that the people he was hurting were safe. His friend had a few words for Colin, but he knew that each name that his friend called him was true.

    He decided to leave Mercy Hospital and get back to fighting crime in Millennium City. His current status is stopping a miniature gang war between the maniacs, purple gangers, and Sledge Hammer's gang that are being hired by someone else that is unknown.

    It is still being edited.

    This is Buster Man, inspired by Megaman
    2015-07-22_00030.jpg

    This is The Lightbender (not a great name but I couldn't think of anything better). He is a parody of Green Lantern. His power comes from a set of 8 rings (4 on each hand, that spell out HERO) that he earned from collecting box tops from Super Her-O's breakfast cereals. They give him the power to bend light into hard-light constructs.
    2015-07-22_00028.jpg

    This is Enigma, a former magician that learned he had to mutant power to temporarily make his illusions real. He's inspired by Mysterio.

    This is Sludge. Inspired by Venom, he's the result of a symbiote experiment gone wrong. He now can fire toxic goo from his body, as well as liquefy and solidify himself at will.

    This is Night Raven, inspired by a combination of Batman and Nightwing.

    Sure! His story had him start out as a villain anyway, so it's appropriate.

    This is preposterous. A mighty warrior like me has no time to do this... 'cos-play' nonsense! I wouldn't even be caught *dead* in Valhalla wearing such cheap armor! Well, not more dead than usual that is.



    The fact you even got the mighty Draugur to get this far into equipping the armor is probably a testament to your determination! Or my desperation... Can you glue my beard back on now?!

    Inspired by a discussion of cloners who use stupid names like "xSupermanx" to slide past the name filter, I present Supermanx, a genetically-modified housecat. (There's no tail because Manx cats are naturally tailless.)
