The Demon: Lamashtu
-Lamashtu's demonic powers come from feasting on the souls of infants. To avoid a moral dilemma, she only eats the souls of evil babies.

The Beast: Randall the Reverse-Werewolf
-Randall was bitten by a human as a pup, and as a result he has the ability to transform into a human during every full moon.

The Science experiment: Wesley
-Mad scientists chose Wesley’s brain not for his intelligence, but because his was the most handsome brain they’d seen in all their years of brain-harvesting.

The Robot: Vlad the Calculator
-Developed by Soviet scientists in the 1950’s, Vlad has the ability to compute standard mathematical problems, much like a modern checkbook calculator.

 Love that!

 Good pixeling, the colors are great!

I can't figure out what it is that's recognizable about your style. But pretty good, I like the werelion.

Fantastic job with your color management, and reusing that purple for both Lilith and Wesley! I'm aware I'm supposed to be critiquing the art here, but I can't help but say that you have designed the most original, hilarious team I have ever seen. Your witty backstories for each of these characters really help the viewer understand them more, in addition to how you designed their characters graphically. I also think these characters wouldn't make very good superheros, but would be fantastic Anti-Villians!

'Count' Vlad?

The reverse-werewolf is an awesome idea.

Always know when something is yours as soon as I see it.

monotov (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/31/2012 05:29

Lol at description XD

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 10/31/2012 04:25

 I like designs, and they have interesting back stories c: I have to agree with the first comment, I didn't see them as heros but more as villians... 

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/30/2012 08:03

 The originals are still used in the preview, the change is pretty minor

Rayovatron (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/30/2012 06:36

The Reverse-Warewolf looks pretty sweet.

 cure, can you link the original please. Thanks

sasuke91 (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 10/30/2012 04:47

very cool, and nice descriptions ^^

dianinhas (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/30/2012 04:39

 WOW thats so cool 

I love the werewolf 

schminitz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/30/2012 01:54

Awesome, and like Buddy, I love the descriptions. Mainly Lilith one.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/29/2012 23:30

Good call, fixed.

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 10/29/2012 23:24

Instantly recognized as yours. Great as always. You're exploring kind of cartoony simplicity, I see. Compared to Octoad and friends, which looked more "gritty".

And the descriptions are hilarious.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 10/29/2012 17:50

I'll skip the ass-kissing and jump right to the nitpicking :D...

The skincolor [144,70,25] in Lamashtu is too brown and saturated imo, I would blast up the blue to 80 or so. Also, her right arm look a bit weird with that L-shaped bend.

The brain is rendered oddly with that red color so similar to the magenta 

El_Tortuga (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 10/29/2012 16:23

 Cool characters. I especially love that handsome brain dude, but they look alot more like super villians than super heros.
