Did you ever make an superhero comics when you were little?

I had the generic ice guy, the generic fire guy, but I made up this surprisingly decent hero that rode around on a cloud and hit people with lightning and froze people n' stuff.

What were yours?

    Dear lord, the stories I could tell about my 7th and 8th grade years, during which I traded in any chance of being cool for badly drawing and writing terribly generic comics.

    My brother and I had our own super heroes that we would act out when we were kids. But we made them special and they were reserved only for summer vacations and long road trips.

    I was Dartman and my super power was that I threw darts at badguys. My brother was Starman and he threw ninja stars.

    I had a generic Spider-man character that was ripped from the Scarlet Spider and 2099. He had two circulatory systems, but one was for poison, with his poison heart in the other side of his chest. I was so rad.

    Also, in 5th grade, I had an entire roster of guys in a fighting tournament to save the world, most of which were ripoffs of characters from either Time Killers or World Heroes.

    I loved anything to do with the X-Men and spent many happy hours pretending to be a mutant with cool powers. My personal favourites were telekinesis and storm's weather control. I split my lip once getting a bit too enthusiastic about pretending I could fly.

    When I was a kid I thought up The Pseudo-Men, they were disposable robots that could have whatever power was needed to save the day installed into them.
    Many a stick figure drawing was done of them on old wallpaper.

    Thanks for leading me to Scud! I'll look into that guy.

    I believe their main foes were Feng Shui ninjas that wanted all objects to be put in order (I hated tidying up), ugly nosferatu-style vampires and zombies, however the zombies could be vikings or samurai, I obviously didn't get decomposition at the time, "Baroness Boom and her Boom Bots" and an endless supply of giant monsters that the Pseudo-Men had to throw themselves at like a swarm of bees.

    I had made up a superhero that was a weapons specialist. He had like 6 or 8 hand guns holstered all over his body, as well as daggers that he was able to use as hand-to-hand or throw them at people. He had these goggles that would show him read outs of his enemies weaknesses, and weaponry. I think his name was Fatal Shot or something. He was rad to pretend to be.

    I made up a character with shadow based teleporting and some other associated shadow powers for an X-Men MUSH when I was in middle school. Crazy long process to get it approved for use in their game universe. 8 months later, Sabertooth mauled Psylocke and she got Crimson Dawn shadow powers and I wanted to sue Marvel.

    So, my first comic featured ripoffs of Spawn, Cerebus, Mr. Gone, Iszs, the Maxx's cardboard box, and the murder of a cat and a police officer. Except I gave them all creative names, like Mike, Joe, and Lt. Smith.

    This is the danger of reading too many mid-90's Image comics as a child.

    I can't remember heroes, but I did invent a vilain in 6th grade who would run after people who didn't pay their taxes and beat the crap out of 'em. He would deliver poor one-liners before beating 'em up. I think he also had a really lame name, like "Joe Taxes" or something (when I was young, "Joe" and "John" seemed like really cool bad-ass names).

    I don't know why the hell I drew that character, since I didn't give a shit about taxes.

    I made a ton of heroes with absolute no back story, basically I thought up a super power and then drew a person attached to that cool looking power.

    The best developed one was something about a TK powered homless guy in baseball cap and trench coat. I remember being happy with that one until a friend suggested giving him laser eyes, then it seemed too much like a jean grey+cyclops baby (before I started reading about cable) which I thought was dumb.

    I was really into the X-Men and Spidey in the 90s, so all of my made up characters were somehow ripped off or inspired by those books. I had a self-insert character who could fly, was super fast, and shot energy out of his hands. I think he was called Quickshot. Then I had a mutant ninja character with wolverine claws. Another guy I called X-Change Man, and he was basically a mutant shapeshifter, except he had to say the name of whoever he was changing into. I had a team of ninjas called Ninja Force that were ripped off from the GI Joe ninja line.

    I built up this large stable of characters, to the point that I had a crossover series about aliens invading the earth and all of the super heroes banding together to repel the invasion. It was called War of the Worlds and the aliens were ripped off from that 90s syndicated show of the same name. I drew something like 10 covers for the crossover, including several gatefold covers. I never actually got around to drawing or writing the actual issues.

    Well at one point he'll be a good guy, being all whiny about trying to find who's his father and then he'll fall in love with Elle after she blasted him with electricity for a couple of hours, and then he'll kill her for no particular reason, becoming a bad guy again.

    I'd cross my fingers so that your son will be Sylar from Season 1, not "what the hell happened" Sylar from Season 2 and 3.

    When I was in the third grade, my best friend Pat and I decided to start making comic books. I came up with a character called Lava Man (I was a creative little bastard, wasn't I?).
    Lava Man was made of Lava and could shoot globs of molten lava from his hands. He could alternately turn rock hard or essentially have liquid properties. He didn't have legs - the bottom half of his body just kind of flowed. He had absolutely no backstory, I just thought a man made of lava would be cool.
    I remember laying on the floor in Pat's room and lovingly adding a ludicrous amount of crappy detail to my cover drawing for Lava Man #1. That cover page was as far as I got. I'd bet it's still around in my parent's attic somewhere...

    OK. So, I just googled "Lava Man" and after some searching, I found that Thor fought him back in issue 97 of Journey Into Mystery.
    This is great news! Obviously, some time in the near future, I travel back in time to work on comics with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby!
    I believe their main foes were Feng Shui ninjas that wanted all objects to be put in order (I hated tidying up), ugly nosferatu-style vampires and zombies, however the zombies could be vikings or samurai, I obviously didn't get decomposition at the time, "Baroness Boom and her Boom Bots" and an endless supply of giant monsters that the Pseudo-Men had to throw themselves at like a swarm of bees. Haha!

    I would totally read this.

    I wish I still had my notebook of super hero teams I made up. They were so bad.

    Each one had a theme. I directly recall a theme of women's accessories. One of the heroes was based on Lipstick, and had, like, extendable lipstick swords.

    Another theme was based on the big cat family! Having a guy that's like a cheetah run fast is soooo original!

    7th and 8th grade my best friend and I made up Chinchilla Man. We wrote like 15 horrible pages and designed probably 80 horrible characters for that. It was really fun though. It was a guy who had his genes crossed in a horrible science experiment with a chinchilla, and thus became a 6 foot, 300 lbs anthromoporphic chinchilla.

    Fast forward several years and that said best friend has become a professional pastry chef, she made my wedding cake and made the groom on top chinchilla man. (all to my delightful suprise).

    Well, I had a sword that could burst into flame. And a battleaxe that... got bigger, basically. And a staff that could blast energy cuz it was a magic staff and I had a girl with one of those old fashioned horns that could lull people to sleep or make them happy or angry or whatever. I'm thinking early exposure to The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe inspired that one.
