CHALLENGE: You rad-tad Misfits!

Challenge winner, The B.O.B., has another challenge for everyone!

It's simple, create a team of superhero misfits. Use your creative juices, and create a team bonded by their unique traits. Each of them has to have some trait that bonds the team as a whole, yet have characteristics that make them unique in themselves.

  • colors: 32 max
  • size:250 x 200 pixels is the max
  •  minimum of 3 characters in the piece (to be called a team)
  • animations: allowed
  • Transparency: NO

Designwise, you're as free as a bird: ie, don't have to be humans, can be anything, just as long as it has enough life in it to presume some type of character.
Follow the rules, and have fun kiddos!

Hi there!

I just got a decent team idea, but cannot decide about the powers. Any ideas?

Background: After a dangerous accident with a banana, three ordinary genome researchers with bad music tastes became contaminated with a mysterious bacterium. They discover soon that when striking their secret hero-pose, they posess powers far beyond mere humans.

Powers 1:
Victor Lux: When holding his hands before his eyes he can see through anything, except underwear.
Anna Bell: When holding her hands before her mouth she can hypnotize anyone, except bald people.
Thomas Doppler: When holding his hands before his ears he can hear any noise and understand any languge, except french.
Chad, their pet monkey: Can balance nuts on his nose.

Powers 2:
Victor Lux: When holding his hands before his eyes he can see through stained glass.
Anna Bell: When holding her hands before her mouth she can talk with earthworms. And also eat as many hamburgers as she wants without getting fat.
Thomas Doppler: When holding his hands before his ears he can hear out guitar from any kind of noise.
Chad, their pet monkey: Is invulnerable but sleeps 23 hours a day.

Powers 3:
Victor Lux: When holding his hands before his eyes he can see with the eye of any creature.
Anna Bell: When holding her hands before her mouth she can make noises with the proper organs of any creature.
Thomas Doppler: When holding his hands before his ears he can hear with the ears of any creature.
Chad, their pet monkey: Can control the mind of any creature AND balance any number of nuts on his nose.

I liked the 3rd set, except for the mind controlling monkey. That would make the whole team half useless.

@ Adam,

Ow I want to see how you are going to pixel those!

Any set will do, but my favorites are:
 Victor from 1;
 Anna from 2 (especially the eating part!),
 Thomas from 1 and the
 Chad from 3

Looking forward to the pieces!

Best regards from

Hi, my heroes.
I want an opinion about them, not to post "stupidities" in PJ.

dont worry about it purplez, im almost positive it is merely the result of the horrible JPEG-ing

Just to let you guy's know, they don't necessarily have to be "super" heroes. Just a group or team with exceptional abilities, but something to bond them together to make them a team in the first place...Doesn't necessarily have to be human either, nor do they have to conform to the every cookie cutter comic book character. Outside the box/realm of spandex is where I'd rather this be heading...

@Adam: That's looking groovy. Can't wait to see it finished.

@Setzer: Looking pretty cool too. But when you're done with this, I've always wondered if the way you were doing faces was stylized and on purpose, or do you have trouble with making faces natural? I've always wanted to ask, but didn't want to seem like a jerk if I did. Now's a better time than ever...

Well, Chad is the only one whose pose depends on his powers. As I'm still uncertain about wich set to take thus he's still missing. The tails blong to the monkey costumes.
