El Peleardor Verde



El Peleardor Verde (or the Green Grappler, from my woefully inadequate Spanish), is a gentle giant in the All-Class Wrestling division. His record is 19-0, all but one by submission. In that match, his opponent forfeited before he could make it to the ring.

2013 Challenge: Day 18:- Heat Death

Heat Death


When Eddie Simms skipped his high school class to smoke behind the gym, he had no way of knowing that he was in the worst possible place at the worst possible time. High above him, a battle raged on an alien scout ship which had been monitoring the area-a mutiny driving the crew to a bloody clash which left only a few critically injured members alive. At least until the ship plummeted to Earth, destroying the gym and the surrounding area.

Miraculously, Eddie had survived the impact, although not in any physically recognizable way. His shattered skeleton, glowing with strange alien radiation, recombined and rose to its feet. Flames burst along every surface of the bones as the air reacted with the power glowing from them. Eddie regained consciousness inside his reanimated skeleton and marveled at his new appearance.

Then, being a teenage comic book fan (and vaguely remembering something from Astronomy about suns exploding), he grabbed a piece of the alien wreckage that roughly resembled a scythe and decided he would become a superhero.

Heat Death has been fighting evil and inadvertently terrifying the innocent ever since.

2013 Challenge: Day 13- :BRIK

| November 13, 2013 | 0 Comments



BRIK is sort of an urban Golem, formed from the decaying tenements of the inner city. An embodiment of the hopes, dreams and fears of those who lived there.

2013 Challenger: Nathan Seabolt

| October 20, 2013 | 0 Comments

Hi everybody! I’m back to participate in 30 Characters this year for the third time! I hope I can finish this year like the previous two and earn the trifecta. (which is a honor I just made up for myself)  This year I plan on focusing my creations into cohesive units more than my usual shotgun approach. Maybe there’ll be teams? We’ll have to see.

I love seeing the participation in the challenge in the community, and the imagination that this site generates is staggering. I have a feeling this year will be the best yet, and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
