Day 6 | Logan Greenthorn

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.

About the Author ()

Teacher, Playwright, Performer & Superhero Enthusiast. My first crayon drawings were of Superman and Captain America. I always wanted to draw comics but never followed that passion beyond some self-published zines and forays into early internet comics. I've worked in various aspects of graphic design and fooled around with a spray can at various stages of my life, keeping my pen busy and full of various inspirations for the doodles in the margins of my notebooks. Inheriting an iPad changed my productivity with the ability to draw, edit, color and post onto the internet via one device in the limited time I have to mess around with my doodles and drawings. My 5-year-old son is my biggest fan and the main reason for my artistic renaissance. He's the reason I'm drawing more often and the person I draw the most for. For the 30 CHARACTERS challenge this year, he is my co-conspirator and collaborator. His excitement and innocent love of superheroes and drawing has kept my inner cynic/critic at bay and we are having a blast this year making up a whole new universe of heroes, robots and monsters for the internet. -updated Oct. 2012
