8 years after the original Hero Splicer challenge, once more it's time to create your own original super heroes or villains.

Choose one word from each coloumn to create your character's name. It's ok to change the order of the words to find the suitable name. Your character is supposed to reflect its name.

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.

A B C
DR ACID VIPER
MR DARK MORTIS
FANTASTIC ROCK FURY
NITRO CHAOS STORM
ULTRA GALACTIC HAVOC
THE OMEGA MAN
PURPLE ELECTRIC BEAST
LADY AQUATIC BONES
GREEN TOXIC GIRL

Canvas Size -  Max. 128 x 128.
Colours - Max. 16.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional

Quote of the Moment

Now, the value of an idea has nothing whatsoever to do with the sincerity of the man who expresses it. Indeed, the probabilities are that the more insincere the man is, the more purely intellectual will the idea be, as in that case it will not be coloured by either his wants, his desires, or his prejudices.

Oscar Wilde, Unknown Source
