Create a portrait of yourself as a super hero. What your super powers and / or costume are (if there is one) and how they affect your portrait is entirely up to you.

As this is a portrait challenge, only head and shoulders are allowed to be seen.

Optional bonus challenge: Find yourself a cool super hero name and use your challenge entry as your avatar.

Canvas Size - Max 64 x 64
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.
