So this is my entry for the Fat Superhero Contest
check out my art blog here:[link]
I wanted to finish it but school started and I ran out of time, so here\'s some lines for you
This is Thommy(Code Name Uppercut) and her power is electricity. She\'s not exactly a superhero, but a person with superpowers that works for Genius Co
Genius Co are the people who provide both supervillains and superheros with all their fancy machines and technology. They buy up geniuses and supergeniuses fresh out of college before anyone can get them, and put them in big rooms with lots of technology bits to play with all day. They live pretty handsomely with expensive luxuries and in exchange GenCo owns all the patents to all the things these geniuses invent while they\'re working for them.
So then GenCo rents or sells these things to supervillains/heroes, and if they fall behind on their payments, they send out their repossession team.
People that work for GenCo aren\'t heroes or villains, but typically people who just don\'t feel comfortable taking a side on the issue of morality, or just don\'t want to fly around saving planets and galaxies and things and just want to work from nine to five and go home and watch TV every evening.
Thommy is one of those. She\'s actually native to a small village in Africa(I haven\'t done enough research yet to decide which one) and after some complications involving her powers and a local supervillain that stole her from her mother to use her electricity to power his laboratory, GenCo found her and took her in. She\'s grown up under the guidance of GenCo\'s superkid guidance program, which they provide to non-super parents who can\'t raise their superchildren all by themselves, or just superkids that for one reason or another are without homes. They also often take in kids that have been left in the foster program because of their powers.
Each GenCo Repo team usually has two supers, and then a team of regular people who take larger machines apart and pack them away in the Repo trucks. The two supers usually don\'t have to do much, just make sure the regulars aren\'t messed with, and also they have to \"convince\" the previous owners to sign a form stating they understand why their property is being repossessed and they understand that they can\'t attack GenCo without getting arrested and stuff.
Thommy can be very convincing when she wants to be.
Thommy isn\'t overweight, but she\'s very muscular. She does a lot of working out and takes protein supplements every day. Due to some experimenting the villain from her past did with her powers, she can only release electricity from her forearms, and even then she needs those gauntlets to help. She was somewhat traumatized by the treatment she received and the way her powers were so badly screwed up, so physical discipline is part of her way of reclaiming her own body.
Her team partner is Avery(Code Name Djinn) who is a sand guy. I didn\'t include him here since he\'s irrelevant to the contest. He has a lot of difficulty when it comes to maintaining a passable human form.
This is meant tobe formatted kind of like a comic cover, and the big blank area up along the top is where the title would be.
