Pixel Art Challenge: Hero Splicer


Look at the image below and take a word from the left side then combine it with a word from the right. This will be your new and original superhero (or villain) that you are going to pixel for this week's challenge.

So for example, if you pick Orange from the left and Avalanche from the right, you'd end up with a character called "Orange Avalanche".

You can present your character however you like (standalone sprite, incorporated into a scene, a portrait), just as long as your character is the main focus of the piece.
One last thing, feel free to add the word "The" in front of your character's name. So, both "Masked Mantis" and "The Masked Mantis" are fine.

Canvas Size - Max 120 x 120.
Colours - Max 30.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

I can't believe there's no "captain" at the first segment.

 Orange Avalanche sounds like the aftermath of too much indian food.

Neat challenge, wish I could join.

Professor Calamity... has explosive experiments o_o

and the value of the items he prevents theives from stealing is worth just slightly more than the damage he causes while stopping them
