Character Creation Challenge: Marquis of Death

AkoniAkoni Posts: 599 Critical Contributor
I seem to be on this bad guy kick, but it's October and with Halloween approaching we might as well keep it going with one of the baddest of the bad, the Marquis of Death. 

Everyone is encouraged to participate. Just follow 3 rules:

1. Stick to the character in the title. You may choose any depiction of that character (younger, older, alternate reality, etc.).

2. Provide some details like the colors of the powers and description. Include more if you're feeling a bit more expressive. Include as much or little detail as you desire. As long as the information is there and understandable, it is fine. As an example, I will begin the challenge with my own design.

3. You may utilize someone else's ideas, but give them credit. Chances are, we will all come up with some of the same ideas. Post them freely, but give credit to the inspiration for your idea, if any.

Constructive discussion is encouraged. If you have any suggestions for a future CCC, leave a comment.


If you also have a soft spot for bad guys, check out our past challenges on StarVlad DraculaNimrod, and Lilith.
