Karabear Comics Unlimited entering

Postby KarabearComics » Mon Sep 05, 2016 6:38 am

I still need to get them out of last year's Caper (should only take one or two more pages--just need to draw them), but I'll sign up for this year as well (two Caper storylines back-to-back--never done that before) with Unlimited's regular crew (Eiderdown, Fractal, Astral, Sparkle, the Swimmer, the Runner) and I may also include the Protectors again, though I'm not sure. I'll get back to this thread for who I decide, if any, from them to include in the storyline.

Not a Caper in the last couple of years without members of Ave & Karabear's menagerie attending... and this year luckily without exception! :-)

I've got the cover up for my involvement here.

Also, aside from the normal Unlimited crew, I thought I'd have Flame Thrower, Michael (actually called Mineral now, but he was introduced as Michael), Pinball, and a tag-along: a version of Ozma. This is not the version Jay posted, but one of my own deviation from the books. Her appearance is as she was on one of the covers to Ozma of Oz:

(note, seen here along with the blond Dorothy and Dorothy's hen Billina)

Though my version has blonde hair, like she was described in her first appearance, the Marvelous Land of Oz (she was later changed to black hair to differentiate from Dorothy). Also, you get a glimpse of a new villain of mine on that cover: the Wicked Winkie Wizard. I'll try to get two pages up tomorrow (if I can).

Pages 1 and 2 now posted!

A note: my Ozma is not supposed to be from this Oz. I'll have an explanation in the comic, but essentially whatever merged Oz and Shelterville merged her Oz with this Oz. The crisis referred to in the comic is not the merger--the merger happened while Ozma was away trying to deal with the Wicked Winkie Wizard starting to act more openly.

I'll be page 5, at least. Page 4 was just put up and still no cameos. But I'll put effort into doing them next week.

Finally page 5 is up, showcasing characters from Do You Like Fear? and Hey Fox! (and I just now realized they're both the punctuated comic titles).

I realize I should actually post information about my characters, since people may balk at my large archives, so here we go (warning, a lot of images below):

The crew from Karabear Comics Unlimited is:
Eiderdown
Image
Real name - Julie Ramos
Height - around 5'5"
Ethnicity - Half-Lao, half-Mexican
Powers - Can create and control feathers, and can cause her body to be comprised of feathers, through which she can blow away in the wind for faster transportation. Has found out how to use this aspect of her ability to grow wings when she wants, in order to be able to fly. Generally very light (helps with the flying) with soft attacks, but is immune to things like gunfire due to instinctually becoming more feathery and letting the bullets go through her. Is vulnerable to electricity more than anything.
Personality - Is quite shy and unsure of herself, but also determined to do the right thing.
Relationships - Dating the Swimmer (open relationship), sibling-like relationship with Fractal
Pronouns - She/her

Fractal
Image
Real name - Inapplicable (is comprised of a near-infinite number of heroes)
Height - Variable
Ethnicity - Variable
Powers - Can create energy constructs (a la Green Lantern) that are colored with fractal patterns (and always opaque, so no flying like Green Lantern does). Semi-involuntary shapeshifting (it's like breathing for Fractal--a form can be held, but the body actively wants to continue shifting) between sex, height, weight, age, ethnicity, etc. (but is always human in such forms, and never reaches super-human heights or strengths, and always appears 21 or over). Said shapeshifting also causes to fractal patterns on Fractal's clothes to constantly change.
Personality - A bit more seasoned of a superhero, is constantly thinking on hir feet. However, can take personal failure particularly difficultly.
Relationships - Sibling-like relationship with Eiderdown
Pronouns - Zhe/hir

Sparkle
Image
Real name - Diamond June
Height - 7'0"
Ethnicity - Caucasian
Powers - Like the Hulk, has super strength tied to her emotions, though unlike Hulk, hers are with any strong emotion. With the strength increase, her intelligence diminishes and she also bulks up more, involuntarily grabbing mass from the surrounding area (signified by the pink sparkles that surround her as this happens). Unlike the Hulk, does not have a "Bruce Banner" form, stuck in a Hulk-like masculine body with a learning disability (said disability caused by her powers).
Personality - Generally peaceful and non-violent, she is also very emotional and thus can lose control and attack when threatened or hurt (or sees a loved one hurt). Likes to be a girly as possible.
Relationships - Sibling-like relationship with Astral
Pronouns - She/her

Astral
Image
Real name - Colton White
Height - 6'3" in astral form
Ethnicity - Caucasian
Powers - Can astral project into a form with super strength, flight and super durability (said form is what he's in for the Caper). Vulnerable to psychics and soul-targeting attacks.
Personality - His astral form causes him to think of himself as invulnerable, flirting with women a lot and finding no qualms about throwing himself into danger, often forgetting that he does have weaknesses. Still, always wants to help people.
Relationships - Sibling-like relationship with Sparkle
Pronouns - He/him

The Swimmer
Image
Real name - Immookalee Ravenwing
Height - 6'1"
Ethnicity - Native American (Cherokee/Choctaw)
Powers - Can make the air like water, allowing her to swim through it, but also cause things like fleeing enemies to seem like they're running through water
Personality - Fond of quips and puns, the Swimmer is meant to be the more fun-loving one (like Spider-Man--doing the right thing, but joking all the while). A big flirt with the ladies (more than Astral), is completely sure of herself in her identity and sexuality.
Relationships - Dating Eiderdown (open relationship)
Pronouns - She/her

The Runner
Image
Real name - Unpronounceable to humans, goes by Ichabod Theodore Mann while on land
Height - 4'10"
Ethnicity - Flimerran (an under-sea race of fish-people)
Powers - Can withstand extreme pressures (or lack thereof) and temperatures (causing him to be the only one of his species to go to the surface). Otherwise uses gadgets stored in his pouches (a seed that instantly becomes a staff, strangleweed seeds, light pearls, and electric charges) and his adept hand-to-hand abilities
Personality - Bright and sunny personality, with a joy of discovery, is also analytical and able to assess a situation easily and work out a solution. Doesn't consider himself a superhero, but an explorer. Speaks in broken English, due to it not being his first language (ie "I no know what you say.")
Relationships - Monogamous relationship with a merman on his own world
Pronouns - He/him


The Almighty Protectors (my characters in the Caper from Karabear Comics Presents Special--it's not the whole team, but some of them):
Flame Thrower
Image
Real name - Marianna Dragonmaster
Height - 6'2"
Ethnicity - 3/4 Caucasian, 1/4 dragon
Powers - Pyrokinesis (localized in the hands), flight, resistance to extreme temperatures
Personality - Fiercely loyal to her friends, sometimes to the point that she might step in where she isn't needed. Revels in her powers, especially the flight. A dreamer that loves fantasy stories.
Relationships - Monogamous relationship with Multiblades, adopted sister to Rearranger, daughter of Dispawn
Pronouns - She/her

Mineral
Image
Real name - Michael Hernandez
Height - 5'7"
Ethnicity - Hispanic (Mexican)
Powers - Can cover his body in a jagged, rock-like material. He can move freely, but it's like rock to anyone else. It's sharp enough to cut like a knife.
Personality - A bit of a practical joker, loves to see the lighter side of things. Sometimes a little reckless, but overall doesn't try to take the lead. Loves geology and petrology (and likes to make puns in that regard, especially since his powers fit the theme).
Relationships - Monogamous relationship with Rearranger, twin to Multiblades
Pronouns - He/him

Pinball
Image
Real name - Unknown
Height - I actually haven't settled on one, but it appears Pinball is a little on the short side
Ethnicity - Unknown, possibly inapplicable
Powers - Creates portals that lead to either other universes/dimensions or somewhere in the same universe. Can use these to fly (by constantly falling), but still working on it
Personality - Without knowledge of hir origins, Pinball is instead fascinated by the world. Everything seems new and can be easily distracting. Has attached to the rest of the Protectors as a de facto family and interacts with them often like a sibling, though sometimes they say like a puppy
Relationships - mentioned in Personality
Pronouns - Zhe/hir
