Decided to remake my mystical gambler, the Card King, as a Staff/Energy Stalker (EA representing his natural flashiness and his magical "probability aura") !

Card King, eh?  Is there a court?  A "Card Count" perhaps? 😉

 

Cards, staff, energy.  Unique name, great look.  Nice, nice job.  I doff my hat to you.  This is how to do an homage character. 

(And if any are not picking up on the vibe, cards/staff/energy = X-man Gambit, though I could see the possibility of a bit of influence from DC's Royal Flush gang)

You'd be surprised to know that I found the similarity to Gambit only recently. 😉 He's definitely inspired by other card-themed characters, though (especially the animated versions of the Royal Flush Gang)

His upper body should also be maxed out on the sliders (chest, shoulders, and body)...  but I just wanted something that felt thematic without being a truly ridiculous Liefeld character.

 

Find your own Liefeld character name with this hand chart:

Guess my next character will be Overstrike!

Here's a couple.

 

Old School Newbie - Assault Rifle/Devices Blaster.  My very first costume and character dating back to at least Halloween 2004, possibly a bit earlier.  You can kind of tell I was still a teenager at the time.  The cape wasn't part of the original costume until level 20, back in the day when you have to earn your cape.

Junkertown - Robots/Electric Mastermind.  A scavenger with a knack for tinkering.  His armor and rifle are mostly constructed from rusty scrap metal.  He also built and replaced his own right arm which is where the electricity is generated, however the nature of the material it's built with tends to make it faulty at times.

Dizzy Duelist - Staff/Bio Brute.  A former contestant on the hit game show Paragon City Contenders, he was disqualified after it came to light that he was using illegal super serums to gain an edge.  Despite this, he still managed to find some hero work.  Very much inspired by American Gladiators.  Also happened after seeing a lot of "spin to win" Brutes over on the Brute forums.

Modern Samurai - Katana/Energy Scrapper.  With a combination of cybernetics, nanotech, and a laser sword, she hits the streets with a new style of feudal era swordsmanship.  Or maybe she's seen too many cyberpunk style movies, who knows?

What program is everyone using to post these pics? I would like to add mine but don't know how.

 

I just use windows in-built "snip & sketch" tool to capture mine;  You just launch the program, shrink it down to its smallest size, then alt+tab to it while CoH is running, and click "New" to kind of freeze the window and select what you want to capture.  You get good at timing the animations playing out in the power customization section of the costume editor...

/bind SYSRQ "screenshotui 0$$screenshot"
/bind SHIFT+SYSRQ "screenshotui 1$$screenshot"

PrintScreen will now take a normal full screenshot
SHIFT+Printscreen will take a screenshot with your UI and windows. 
or both with  /bind SHIFT+F11 "+screenshotui$$screenshot$$-screenshotui"

Here's my namesake costume and it's variant. Echo Night - Sonic/Dark Sentinel.

Thanks to @biostem for helping me 🙂

 

You see all that is laid out before you and yet you still believe this city, this world, these...heroes, can be saved?

~Yes, I do.~

Why do you deny the inevitable? Can't you see the doom that awaits this lost world?

~Look. Down there. You see that light? It's faint, but it is light. Even the dimmest light pulls hope from despair.~

But your powers are Echoes of the Night. How is it that you trust something so pitiful?

~It's true, I am born of the "Dark Echo," but I've spent enough time among them (humans) to know that even though there appears no end to their self destruction, there are those who believe as I do. Not all are to blame. And those that fight for peace, have light, far, far brighter, in them and will wage war on the darkness of the world to bring that much needed peace to bear.~

If they win that peace, you die. You cannot sustain life without the dark.

~There will always be darkness. The sun falls and the moon rises, yes?~

Yes.

~In those moments, I will exist.~

~I am not merely an echo of the night, I am also a beacon in the night, guiding those that seek it, the light.~

Very well. You can keep this primitive world. Watch over it if you must. But the Chrono Council will be watching you too, Shasik.

Diavolos. Fire/Pain Corr. First one is her Hellspawn costume and the 2nd is her S&M look.

 

The sky was gray when I died. A ghoulish, dark grey. The kind of gray a tornado spawns from. With a tinge of haunting green and a powerful gale force wind that spooked the rain soaked, fallen leaves of Autumn. This was my welcome, my greeting card to the world beneath. What I saw when I entered through the Gates of Hades, scared all the remaining "life" I had in me, right in to the slovenous, gaping maw of Cerebus, my "greeter." At once Cerebus devoured me. Chewing every inch of my dead flesh and wasted nary a morsel as I was chunked swiftly down into it's molten belly. The searing pain that eviscerated from head to toe, marred my memories forever. But, as Cerebus was shitting me out, my second "greeter" remarked, "Now, eternity begins." "Sup the world at your leisure, my herald and do not spare a soul it's due horror." "You are my ripper, my terror and my slasher!" "Be my teeth in the darkness." "Abuse my talons in the night!" "For you are Fire! Flame! And Inferno!" "You are Diavolos!" "Now go."

Epic Titan. Elec/TW tank. First one is his celestial costume and the 2nd is his diplomat costume.

 

Cardev Raspen fell to Earth. Literally. The Titan known as Epic Titan, held off the Listhbanes for as long as he could. In the end, his home planet of Gitania-5, lost it's strongest warrior against the onslaught of the Listhbane Death Fleet.

 

During the battle to save the capital city, Truca Titan, the ground forces of the Listhbanes outnumbered Cardev and the Truca Elite Guard Force, 400-1. Suction teleporters, (the Listhbanes go to weapon against Titans) were thrown without care as to where and who were ripped through the portals to space unknown. Titans can normally withstand many of these evil weapons, if there are other objects in the area, which there were few. Cardev was pulled into one of the portals and all seemed lost.

 

Cardev thrust his Px-17N Supernova, Titan Class energy sword downward into the Truca City Hall flooring, just as he faded from sight. He began to claw back into his realm. Then another suction portal was thrown at him. And another. Too many. Cardev was lost.

 

Hurtling through time and space, Cardev vowed revenge on the Listhbanes at all cost. Darkness took him. Time passed. Cardev's armour began to fall apart as he bounced off of comets and boomed through gas clouds, end over end. He began to burn up as his unconscious body entered Earth's atmosphere.  Aflame, Cardev Raspen, seemed doomed to die and wouldn't even know it. Fortunately for him, Earth is comprised of 71% water. Cardev landed in the North Pacific Ocean, just East of Siuslaw National Forest in Oregon. Cardev careened off of the surface of the ocean and skipped shot into the Alsea Bay where finally, mercifully, his unknown journey through the cosmos, was at an end.

 

The impact of Cardev's landing into the Bay flash burned the water into a fine, super heated mist. Cardev hit the bottom and was buried beneath tons of muck and rock.

 

The town was in a panic. Thinking they were the next 911, everyone ran to whatever shelter they could find. Stores were looted. Mass herds formed unintentionally. The Navy and Coast Guard were called in to contain the situation. First Responders reported in. All the ABC's were on route. And, thousands of miles away, in an office tucked inside a state of the art building in Rhode Island, a phone rang. "Speak." "Is this Positron?" Positron - "I said speak." "This is the Director of Fe..." Positron - "I know who you are. You tried to shut us down six months ago." "Something about Heroes not being needed anymore." DoF - "At the time our national budg..." Positron - "We pay our own people and staff." "Your budget has nothing to do with us anymore." "But it seems to me that you have need of Heroes after all?" "Is that a correct assumption Director?" DoF - "Correct..." DoF - "Look, if you expect me to kiss your ass for wanting to save our tax dollars..." Positron - "Synapse, Citadel and Yin are already there." "Which Yin?" "Ensure that the local tribes are brought in on this as well as they may want to preform a rain dance ritual to bring back the Bay." *click* eh. eh. eh. eh. eh... DoF -"I really hate that man."

 

Now Earth has a Titan. May she use him wisely.

Evanora Stormbru. Mind/Storm Troller.

 

Croatoa. Home. 1627.

 

I was born on the East Winds of New Connaught and spent my childhood flitting between the Oak Trees of the Grim Vale marveling as two massive giants waged war against the other. My teen years began my "ensorcelling" as I rode the Lightning of the Divine to the moon and back. "Be tru to the magic and the magic will be tru to you," chanted my Great Omni Aunt Tilda during my lessons.

 

I've held her mantra tru and as an adult, with the training of both my aunt and the famed War Witch, I still respect the great power that I wield. This new power came with ancient and secret knowledge, passed down from my kin and even some of the denizens of Croatoa. This new enlightenment opened my eyes to the wonders of this great and mystical land. From walking pumpkins to hairy beasts. Ethereal ghosts and wicked witches. Wisps and gnomes.

 

Yes. I call this home.

The heiress to "Eldritch Cola", with a nearly unlimited R&D budget, aspirations to be a hero, and an ego to match, had her engineers develop the Tactical Heroic Interdiction Response SuiT, or "THIRST", so she could make those aspirations a reality.  Now going by "The Pop-Star", she's ready to deliver a heaping load of refreshing justice to villains everywhere!
