When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

Makaela owns a garage on the east side of town that earns her a meager living. One night while she’s closing up, a car crashes into the lamppost right in front of her shop. Mak watches as a vigilante escapes, leaving his car behind…a 1974 Dodge Challenger! She pushes the vehicle into her garage and starts tinkering with the mechanical miracle. Within, she discovers a briefcase, and inside is a vial filled with a strange liquid and a note which reads: This is my last dose, Dr. Carroll. Use it wisely. On a devilish whim, she drinks the liquid and loses consciousness. Embarrassed at her own stupidity when she awakens, Mak takes out her frustration on the Challenger. She reaches for a monkeywrench and tries to smash the engine…and the Challenger hums to life! Just then, goons break into the garage; they want the Challenger, and more importantly, the briefcase. Using her monkeywrench, Mak battles the goons and makes her escape in the Challenger. The only way she’s going to get some answers is to track down the mysterious Dr. Carroll, and hope he can explain what the liquid has done to her and why she now has ability to fix anything…by smashing it!?

Everything changes one day when she finds a strange necklace on the street. She puts it on only to find out that she cannot take it off, and that it gives her the ability to summon a temporary superpower for whatever situation she’s in. There’s only one catch; every time she uses a power, she is really stealing it from one of the Superheroes, leaving them permanently powerless and the world increasingly defenseless.

As the heroic Blue Blazes, Jillian Miles enjoys fame and fortune as Imperial City's resident pyrokinetic celebrity superheroine. And as the high-jumping Leaping Lizard. And the speedy Dust Devil. And as the invincible Josephine Magarac. And the intangible Nowhere Girl. Gifted with five amazing powers, Jillian might have become Earth's mightiest hero. But early in life she came to realize the profit potential in becoming a corporate-sponsored superheroine, and created a unique identity for each of her powers, with each identity funded by lucrative endorsements. She's kept the scam going for years now, using her varied powers to protect Imperial City single-handedly, while raking in money by the pile. But when she wakes up one morning to discover the papers are reporting Blue Blazes murdered through ironic immolation, and that Leaping Lizard was seen fleeing the scene, she's faced with a few problems. As numerous imitators emerge hoping to carry on the legacy of Blue Blazes, she has no way to prove she's the real deal. To further complicate things, numerous superheroes from other cities have come to town, as well as Blue Blazes's former sidekick, hoping to bring Leaping Lizard to justice. With one of her identities being hunted by another, and dozens of new heroes threatening to destroy her monopoly on superheroics in Imperial City, Jillian must find who framed her, convince her peers to leave her city, and make sure her lucrative endorsement contracts are secure! In the end, Jillian discovers that Blue Blazes's former sidekick is the one who set up the whole thing, having become aware of Jillian's scam some time ago. Hoping to step into the role of Blue Blazes as a new, "legacy" hero, and steal Jillian's endorsements, her sidekick approaches her threatening to squeal on her if she doesn't peacefully cede the identity to her. With no other options available, Jillian agrees, but only if her former sidekick helps her clear Leaping Lizard's name. With Blue Blazes's death officially ruled an accident, the visiting superheroes leave the city, and Jillian is left wondering if she can somehow spin a new identity from her now useless pyrokinetic powers.
I think you may've been done in by the idea of creating a hero that is an opposite (of sorts) to Bomb Queen.
Actually, Mask brings up a good point. I thought the idea behind the contest was in part to create a counterpart to Bomb Queen

Just reading the wiki I'm kind of amused by the fact that the character seems like a huge Mary Sue.She's so tough she beats up all the superheroes in her city, then all the supervillains, and then she kills a teenage clone of herself and gets its powers, then declares war on the Image universe and all its inhabitants, and then gets killed by a demon, but conquers the demon's Hellish realm, and gets magic powers when she comes back to life. And she distributes porn videos of herself.
It reminds me of when I was a kid and would make up superheroes that were tougher than Azrael, Batman, Spawn, Badrock, and all the members on Blood Strike and Brigade put together!
I liked really bad comics as a kid.

Guys, let's figure out a time for the next brainstorm session. We might turn it into a weekly thing if everyone is cool with that. Also, suggest some things to talk about next time we meet.

I'm currently working on sort of fantasy/anachronistic urban steampunk skyship fairytale sort of story right now. I have a good plot down in my head, the execution is just difficult since it requires a lot of world building and a lot art wise. I might tackle it more when I am more confident with that stuff. I'd really like to create a good, solid short comic though... I have several ideas for one but haven't gotten around to pulling them off.
Hm, I guess what I'm trying to say is, what are some good tips to getting started on a project that's going to require a lot of investment to finish?
EDIT: I'll also throw some of my plots around here later if you want.

One of my ideas is set in the far future, where body modification through genetic engineering and neuroengineering has become the standard.
Along social lines, people are split up into the 'mod' , the 'parmod' and the 'unmod'. The unmod are the great masses of humanity, they perform menial and manual labor, and are rarely, if ever modified.
