2012 – DAY 06
All characters are created by my 5 year-old son, The Junior Partner. He has either drawn these characters on his own and I have recreated them here, or he has sat at my elbow dictating design and conceptual ideas like a creative, but frenetic, taskmaster.
Dr. Greenthorn was an explorer looking for mystical plants to help people who were sick when he discovered magic seeds. When his camp was attacked by jungle poachers the seeds fell from his pocket into the ground causing tendrils of vine and thorny plant to explode from the ground entwining all in the blast radius in cords of plant life. Dr. Greenthorn learned he could control these plants and eventually used them to attack the leader of the poacher who also ahd enslaved a small village. Dr. Greenthron tried to go aback to his original life’s work, but became disheartened when the Jungle Spirits told him that the plant he was looking for was only a myth but that he should use the magic seeds to help others.
While not a superhero in the generic term, Logan Greenthorn attacks villains who hurt children, animals or cause ecological disasters. The magic seeds cause mystical plants to engulf his body and he can use them in any way he sees fit, as offensive or defensive appendages or for means of exaggerated locomotion. The plants have no real rhyme or reason and are based on the indigenous varieties of pants in the local area. He can amplify natural effects of plant life or cause them to morph into extreme versions of their natural state. The plants produce more fo the magic seeds when Greenthorn dismisses his powers.
