2012 – DAY 24

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.


Gentle Reader, you may have noticed a trend toward spider themed heroes in this 30 Day contest.  This particular spider hero was a combination of an armored version of Spider-Man and an old Batman villain named Black Spider discovered in an old DC Comics’ “Who’s Who” issue.

Spiderfly wears an armor that grants him agility and strength but also can allow for short periods of weightlessness.  Spiderfly has a series of “web bombs” that he wears in a utility belt, but can also shoot blasts of sticky fluid tendrils out of a special gun or from nozzles in his forearms.  He also could use the same fluid to create an underarm “cape” of this spider web fluid which allows him to glide along from building to building or over distances when used in conjunction with his weightless ability.

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
