I was tagged by :iconwhite0wlsuperheroine: to interview the mother-daughter duo of Lodestone and Magnette for this chain interview.  Never done one before, but seems like fun.
I was also tagged by :iconmaltorramus: for a different character, but this one was already underway.

Magnette  Lodestone 2b by Doctor-Awkward

Choose One of your OCS. (although I'm cheating of course)

The Answers Must be written in your OC’s Point of View
Your OC cannot lie.
Your Journal Entry should be "Super OC Interview"
Tag as many people as you want.
Have fun!

1.- Hello, and welcome to 20 Questions with Fourth Wall Magazine! What is your real name and nickname?
Magnette: Is it really alright to tell them our identities, mother?
Lodestone: This is a special case, sweetie.  I am the superhero Lodestone.  My full name is Nadira Rajendran.
Magnette: And I am her sidekick Magnette, though my real name is Anya.  It is a pleasure to meet you!

2.- Very Nice to meet you, what is your current age?
Lodestone: That is... somewhat impertinent, but very well.  I am 38 years old.
Magnette: I turned 9 just a few months ago!

3.- What is your alignment in the great never-ending battle of good and evil?
Lodestone: We stand firmly on the side of good.  Though we were granted these powers by chance, it is our responsibility to use them proactively to improve the lives of those around us.
Magnette: Yes!  Steelboro has many problems, but solving the ones we are able to makes the city a much nice place to live!

4.- What is the origin of your powers?
Magnette: My mother said that there was a strange event on the night that I was born, and we both gained magnetic powers from it!
Lodestone: I am afraid that the occurrence has yet to be explained, nor has it repeated since that night.

5.- Fascinating! Now, superpowers and such aside, what do you feel is your greatest strength as a character?
Lodestone: Determination, without a doubt.  When life is uncertain, an iron will and a willingness to constantly move forward are what inspire confidence in the public for their heroes.
Magnette: Optimism!  When you are filled with hope, the people around you gain comfort and peace of mind!

6.- Here's what may be a bizarre question: What kind of Universe do you exist in? Is it serious? Comical? Sexy? Noir? Horror? 
Lodestone: You are quite right, that is a bizarre question.  Well... if you are asking what sort of missions we undertake, they do vary based on the criminals responsible.  For someone such as Lady Libertine... it is quite a serious matter.  She is manipulative and controls others through their vices.
Magnette: But there are some funny ones too!  Those criminals Dr. Diode and Alloy frustrate themselves most of the time that they try to attack us!
Lodestone: There is one rather, erm... irritating constant.  In the cases where we are defeated, our opponents leave us bound and gagged without fail.  I do not know how to categorize this, nor do I wish to.
Magnette: I see that quite a lot on TV too.  Those villains must watch a lot of TV!

7.- A lot of super-people have certain recurring elements of tragedy in their background. The readers would like to know if you do as well. For instance, are your parents still alive and/or did you come from a destroyed planet? Stuff like that.
Lodestone: It is more a risk of tragedy than any past or ongoing tragedy that drives us.  Our inaction could lead to the misfortune of others, especially in the state that the city is currently in.  Crime was at its highest rate recorded on the year that we first began fighting crime.
Magnette: Our only tragedy is spending all of our free time training our magnetic powers.  It is necessary but it gets so repetitive.

8.- Who made your costume?
Lodestone: This is a bit of an embarrassing story...
Magnette: But Mr. Klopstock is so funny!
Lodestone: He... alright, I'd better explain.  I first started out as a superhero when Anya was still very young, and Steelboro was desperately in need of a hero at that time.  My priority in designing a costume at that time was public recognition, both to be recognized as a hero and recognized at a distance.  I reached out to other heroes and they directed me to a man named Konrad Klopstock.  He is... quite eccentric, I think it would be fair to say without insulting him.  Mr. Klopstock has designed costumes for heroes for nearly fifty years now, and was very enthusiastic to design such a suit for me.  It is a bit... well... provocative, perhaps, but Mr. Klopstock assured me that my public image would be immensely popular, and he was not wrong in the slightest.  His work is quite exceptional, but he is wholly scatterbrained, and kept having to take my measurements over and over again.
Magnette: And he made sure that my costume matched my mother's to make us a proper superhero pair!  Every time he looked at her for reference, his head nearly spun like an owl's!

9.- Do you have siblings?
Magnette: No, sir!  I'm a single child!
Lodestone: As was I, though both cases sprung from necessity.  I need to devote myself fully to protecting the city, helping Anya develop her powers, and working my day job.  My parents immigrated to America when I was very young and wanted to be sure they could support the family they already had.

10.- What is your biggest fear/ worst nightmare?
Lodestone: Losing everything that I have worked for... and for it to be my fault.  My family, my city, everything.
Magnette: I'm afraid of... failing badly even when I try my hardest.  It just wouldn't be fair...

11.- Are you a solo act, or part of a team? 
Magnette: We are a team, of course!
Lodestone: Although we do get help occasionally from the Steel Stars and other hero groups from outside Steelboro, Anya and I are capable of handling most day-to-day threats.

12.- Who is your worst enemy and why?
Lodestone: Lady Libertine, without a doubt.  She is everything that I dread in an opponent: cunning, connected, experienced, adaptable, and above all persistent.  No matter how often or how close we come to defeating her, she always has contingencies.
Magnette: And she tricks people into harming themselves with her powers.  She's the worst!

13.- Huh, okay. interesting. Then, who is your best friend? 
Lodestone: Hmm... probably Cathy Doyle, a friend of mine from my days in the District Attorney's office.  She is quite a spirited woman.
Magnette: Moonbeam!  She goes to the same school as me, but she is also a superhero with the Steel Stars!

14.- Confession time; Who is your lover?
Lodestone: My husband Arjun, of course.  He is a kind and dedicated man, and though he holds no superpowers, he helps the city in his own way.
Magnette: I-
Lodestone: You are too young for lovers, betee.
Magnette: Aww...

15.- Existential question: What would you do if you could ever meet your creator?
Lodestone: ...I would ask him to kindly leave us out of his bizarre ideas.  Though I do admit... he does keep the world a lighthearted place, generally.
Magnette: I would thank him for letting good always win over evil in the end!

16.- What is your lifelong dream? 
Magnette: I want to become a scientist when I grow up, as well as to keep being a hero!
Lodestone: My dreams are to raise a family and to protect this city from its growing supervillain population.  I suppose my career in law began as a way to protect the city, but gaining superpowers allowed me to protect it more directly.

17.- What would you do if your dream came true?
Lodestone: Would that it were possible, I would be relieved to retire.  My days off are far and few between.
Magnette: If I became a scientist, then I would discover things that nobody ever believed were possible!

18.- As a character, do you have any personal demons or overarching regrets that haunt you?
Lodestone: None yet, very fortunately.  The burden of potential failure is sobering enough when we face our foes.
Magnette: Me either, and I hope we never do.

19.-  What does your "secret identity" do for work?
Lodestone: I am the mayor of the city of Steelboro.  Did I not mention that earlier?  It is quite a strenuous job, but it can be very rewarding.
Magnette: I am still in school, but other than that, I don't have a secret identity!

20.- Last question, and it's a DOOZY for a super: What is the WEIRDEST thing that has happened to you?
Magnette: Oh, mother, tell them about the one time with Dr. Diode!
Lodestone: Ah yes, that was quite bizarre.  This criminal, Dr. Diode, had invested heavily in magnetic shielding for his robot army, power armor, capture chamber, and the rest of his headquarters as well.  He had us bound together in this chamber and had hoped to get petty revenge of some kind, and so he supercharged Anya with one polarity and me with the other while building a power surge around us.  I do not know what he had intended to happen, but it essentially released an EMP that shut down the entirety of his base and released us all at once.  After that, we simply carried him to the police and confiscated his equipment.
Magnette: He was so angry that he only spluttered and grumbled to himself for the entire trip to the police!
Lodestone: Indeed, it was quite a strange affair all in all.

Done! Now tag some people!
Make it extra fun and suggest specific OCs of theirs that you want to know more about!

And so I tag :iconihniwuntu: for his heroine Volthena

Moonbeam was mentioned in the responses, she belongs to :iconwalnutwilly:

Doctor Awkward's Design-a-Hench Contest! has reached its climax!

Ladies and gentleman, you put me in quite a pickle with these submissions.  The quality of your henchmen, henchwomen, and henchthings across the board had me puzzling for quite a while who to choose, to the point where an honorable mention category would be just a full list of entries.

However, decisions needed to be made, and I selected my top three.  Such was the quality of these three, that I've decided to go back on my original rewards and improve them.  All three henchmen will be added to my universe, and the first place reward has been increased to allow for 5 characters instead of 4 to make up the difference.



In third place, we have ProtoyBonnie with his henchwoman for White Ibis, SECRETARY BYRD!
Untitled Drawing by ProtoyBonnie
Secretary Byrd scratched an itch from the moment I first saw her.  Her name fits White Ibis' own avian theme, her role as an assistant, and her preferred method of combat all at once.  It's easy to envision her as a personal assistant and bodyguard a la Mercy Graves, handling attackers and unruly minions as easily as finances and logistics.  It may be hard to find good help these days, but Secretary Byrd is one dependable henchwoman above all else.



In second place, we have 87ClawDark with his henchman for Apex, TRACKER!
Tracker Bio Henchmen of Apex
Henchman of Orbweaver (occasionally)
Real Name: Trey Trasser
Age: 24
Sex: Male
Hair: Dark brown, ear length, shaggy.
Eyes: Green.
Height: 6'2
Occupation: Poacher, Mercenary
Physical Appearance: Tracker is firm and muscular man with chiseled features and a stubble chin.
Powers and Abilities: Physically, Tracker is at the peak of human condition, and excels almost any non superhuman in athletic prowess. As his name implies, he is a master of tracking and hunting virtually any sort of prey, and makes it a point to know their strengths, weaknesses and abilities and how counter against them. He is also a genius when it comes to laying traps to ensnare, incapacitate, neutralize and halt his opponents. His gear is about as expansive as his skill set, including a reinforced camouflage suit capable of isolating most blows, a grappling hook, a net gun, various bolas, a blowdart gun, smoke bombs, claw-tipped gloves fo

First and foremost, Tracker fulfills a niche that I'd been avoiding for some time: how Apex gets his animal minions.  It's conceivable that he goes around raiding zoos and circuses, but he would no doubt find that beneath him.  With Tracker providing Apex with a steady supply of powerful minions, the villain is free to act on more grandiose plots.  Tracker has a good skillset, strengths and weaknesses, and a fascinating backstory that fits nicely into my own works.  As an added bonus, he gives off a similar "Most Dangerous Game" feel that Apex himself does.  All in all a good package henchman.



In first place, we have That1P with his henchwoman for Doctor Helix, ESCHER!

Mature Content

Escher by That1P

Escher is another intriguing concept with a lot of extra details that come together nicely.  Doctor Helix is an intricate schemer, and manipulating a powerful amnesiac would be a perfect plot for him, to say nothing of his acting the savior for a person who he personally damaged.  Escher's powers compliment Helix's own abilities quite well, and her name and theme connect in a way that paints strong imagery.  Escher has strong story potential with many disorienting battles to come.



Congratulations you three, message me about your prizes at your leisure, and an enormous thank you to everyone who entered for making this my most successful contest I've yet hosted!  Your creativity deeply impressed me!
They say that behind every great man is a great woman, but in front of every great villain is a great henchman!  From right-hand men and seductive advisers to elite muscle and top assassins, the hench force of the world is what keeps the villains fighting toe-to-toe with those valiant heroes.  A cut above the rank-and-file faceless mooks, these are the minibosses for supercriminals, the lieutenants, the specialists, and the arm candy.  Characters such as Thanos' Black Order, Harley Quinn in her original appearance, or even the James Bond thugs like Jaws and Oddjob.  And as luck would have it, a good number of my villains are understaffed!

Your job will be to design a unique henchman or henchwoman for one of my existing villains.

The Rules:

  • Henchmen may be male, female, machine, or anything else, really.
  • Henchmen should compliment their boss' theme and/or abilities.
  • Henchmen may have powers, but nothing more powerful than their boss.  There's a reason they aren't independent villains of their own.
  • Keep things lighthearted overall.  Nothing too grim or gruesome.
  • Henchmen must be created since the start of the contest, and created by you.  There is a time and a place for recycling, but this isn't it.
  • Art or other visual aids are encouraged, but if you are unable to do so, a full detailed description of the henchmen's appearance must be included.
  • Deadline for entries is July 31st before 11:59 PM EST!
The following villains are eligible for a new henchman:

Dullahan BioHenchman to Faerie Queene
Real Name: Stanley Nolan
Sex: Male
Age: 26
Occupations: Film Director, prop and makeup designer (former), Henchman
Physical Appearance (Outside of Suit): Stanley is a young man with short blonde hair. He often goes a few days without shaving, and usually has some stubble going. He stands at about six feet tall, and has an average build. His eyes are green.
Powers: Stanley himself is an average man, but he can pilot a mighty mechanized suit that resembles the Dullahan of Irish myth. The suit possesses strength well beyond that of any normal human, and is surprisingly agile. It can equip a large whip resembling a human spine (it's actually a very convincing prop), greatly extending the suit's combat capabilities. The suit itself appears to be a knight, standing at a towering ten feet, with black armor and skull motifs, but distinctly lacks a head. Instead, the suit carries its "head", a skull that can be thrown, which causes it to detonate. This is a powerful we

Juliana grew up in a French orphanage, never knowing her true family. At some point she escaped from the orphanage after causing trouble, presumed dead in a fire. Taking the name of Juliana D'Aubigny, she became obsessed with the theater and music. The music she herself generated through operatic song, however, turned out to have a hidden effect: she could transfix people with it. Before long Juliana turned to crime, happy to immobilize people and steal their possessions.

Character Portrait: Vellum by Centrilia
 by :iconcentrilia:
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, watchers of all ages, I am going to set my villains loose, and they will abduct some heroes and heroines of the DA community!  How is this going to work, exactly?  I'm glad I asked for you!
Here's what you need to do to be eligible:

1. Be one of my watchers.
2. Have a hero or heroine OC that you'd like to have captured.

And that's it!  The actual submission and raffle process though, that's a bit trickier.

Each of my twenty villains will have their own method of binding their victim.  The list is as follows:

1.   Caissa - Victim will be bound lying down with Caissa dominating them with her foot
2.   Caramel Queen - Victim will be stuck in goop with Caramel Queen lying on top of them
3.   Orbweaver - Victim will be bound shibari-style with a spiderweb pattern
4.   Doctor Malady - Victim will be restrained in a high-tech device that also drugs them with sedative gas
5.   Professor Medusa - Victim will be bound and molested by Medusa's tentacles
6.   V.R. - Victim will be restrained with machinery while V.R.'s many hands explore their body
7.   Jeopardy - Victim will be bound on a conveyor belt with an impending laser peril
8.   Apex - Victim will be locked in a cage, further secured with chains
9.   Ripple - Victim will be frogtied with Ripple using her vibration powers to toy with them
10. Optica - Victim will be bound to a bed with cameras showing different views
11. Hitch - Victim will be hogtied with Hitch's rope body
12. Whirlybird - Victim will be restrained by Whirlybird's three henchmen, all of whom are beat the hell up
13. Psychopomp - Victim will be bound in a high-tech restraint suit inside a force field
14. Dominion - Victim will be chained between two pillars Samson-style
15. Bookbinder - Victim will be tied down by the Lilliputians from Gulliver's Travels
16. Fantasia - Victim will be ambushed and hand-gagged by a hypnotized minion of Fantasia
17. Lady Libertine - Victim will be bound standing as part of an art display
18. Faerie Queene - Victim will be bound to a chair, starting to fall under Faerie Queene's mind control
19. Express - Victim will be mostly mummified with elastic tape
20. Rubber Bandit - Victim will be suspended from a street light by Rubber Bandit's stretchy arms

Entrants will nominate their OC's specifically to be bound by the villain of their choice.  There is no limit to how many characters or how many times OCs may be nominated, but each DA user can only win once.

Candidates will be added to the list in order of application, and then I will use a random number generator to determine the selection.  The raffle will be selected in order from villains with least entrants to most entrants, and this process happening at my usual... let's call it gradual pace.

Here's an example for you visual learners:

Example by Doctor-Awkward

In this example, Orbweaver's raffle will be decided first, and whichever hero wins will be disqualified from the raffles for Caramel Queen and Caissa.  Caramel Queen's raffle comes next, and the winner is disqualified from Caissa's list.  The risk and reward is up to you!

So with the rules in mind, you may post your nominations in this journal!  The cutoff for nominations is February 5th at 11:59 PM EST!

Some optional rules:
1. You may nominate other peoples' OCs with their permission.
2. Villain OCs may be nominated in place of heroes if you so choose, but the binding remains the same.  Villains aren't picky about infighting, naturally.
3. Fantasia's category allows for a second OC to be nominated as the hypnotized minion.  If the winner has no preference, I will decide who the minion is.
First of all, thanks to everyone who entered.  I was quite pleased with your entries, both in terms of quality and quantity.
Of course this made my job in deciding the winners that much harder.  However, after much deliberation, I finally selected my favorites out of the bunch.

“I don’t recall asking for any comments from the Peanut Gallery!”  He looked much like any other patron at the art gallery, except for his warty green skin, webbed fingers, bulging eyes high up his forehead…. Actually, he didn’t look anything like any of the other patrons, Moxie decided, not that she judged people on their looks.
“Why don’t you take yourself and your Miss Manners platitudes off to kindergarten,” he suggested, “where you might enthrall the five-year-olds with them.”

I tried my best to limit it to three winners in each category, but I had to make an exception for fairyprincessjess and david-presents.  Both of them had short, but complete stories with creative ways that the heroes dealt with the villains, with a goodly amount of humor in each, and both of them in a similar style.

Finally he had got it to focus just how he’d wanted it; a large old oak table with a candelabra on it. Behind which, on the wall, were four photographs, each one an 8by12 headshot in a frame, they were of four different heroines. He moved into shot placing his sunglasses on his face and adopting his signature pose; arms crossed in front of him, a beaming, Cheshire cat smile on his face. He counted himself in in his head.
“Hello world and welcome to Death Trap Fun House,” he said each word of the title like it was grander than any words spoken before, “I am your host Jeopardy, the master of danger, and do I have a show for you today.

Phantasam assembled a lovely set of heroines to run through a cornucopia of traps, overcoming the dangers and their own clashing personalities.  The interactions between the heroines were definitely the highlight of this story.

Wei Fei, better known as Wi-Fi of the New Plymouth Guardians, remained calm as she sat at her hub of monitors.

The wealthy industrial family that had built, and named, the museum loved their opulence.

The blonde heroine couldn't simply use her sonic scream as the resin was also covering her mouth, which in turn had been blasted full of liquid caramel.

Tuckerverse did an outstanding job in capturing the personalities of the New Plymouth crew, and he has an excellent way with setting a scene.  Character and location descriptions are his forte, and I had a good chuckle along the way as well.


Would that I could reward everyone that entered, but then it would be a mass art trade rather than a contest.  My sincerest thanks again for everyone who had a hand in making the competition a tough one, and for making me sweat over my selections.

1st place in each category gets a picture with up to 6 characters, 2nd and 3rd receive a picture with up to 4 characters, simple send me a note at your leisure with the details for your reward.

Until next time, stay villainous >:{D
For the month of June, I will be hosting a contest about my superhero OCs!
It'll be your challenge to feature some the New Plymouth Guardians (plus Lodestone in Steelboro and Merrymaker in Bellevue) in the scenarios of your choosing!

Rules are as follows:

  - All entries must feature at least one of my superhero OCs (see doctor-awkward.deviantart.com/… for a full list).
  - Crossovers are fine, encouraged even.
  - Bondage is fine. I mean, have you seen my stuff? GiD is fine too.
  - No death/gore allowed, battle damage is fine. If you're unsure of any elements in your story, message me in advance.
  - No limit on entries, but I will not choose any one person for more than one prize.

Speaking of prizes,

1st place in each category gets a picture with up to 6 characters. That's right, six.
2nd and 3rd place in each category get a picture with up to 4 characters.
More prizes may be added for honorable mentions, if there even gets to be that many entries.

Deadline for entries is July 14th at 11:59 PM EST.

To submit an entry, simply include the link for this journal in the entry's description.

Steelboro Showdown by Doctor-Awkward

Attention Heroes and Villains!


While the city of New Plymouth is locked in its own struggles, the nearby industrial city of Steelboro has problems to spare!

The fiendish Libertine Society, led by the emotion-controlling Lady Libertine, has brought the city to its knees in a wild crime spree!
To combat this menace, the magnetic heroine Lodestone, alter ego of Mayor Nadira Rajendran herself, has founded the Steel Stars to bring peace and order back to the city!


What You Need to Do:


Both the heroic Steel Stars and the villainous Libertine Society are recruiting!
  - Your character will be a new creation, set in the same world as New Plymouth, but owned by you!
  - There is no limit to how many new heroes or villains you can submit, but not all may be chosen.
  - You may create by any means possible. If you are an artist, draw! If you are a writer, write! Just so long as you get your idea across. Create a deviation or journal with your character idea.
  - Your character must have at least one superpower, whether it's an innate ability, powerful magic or fantastic technology.
  - Keep it lighthearted and fun!

Optional rules:
  - Have your character's superpower be different from anyone in New Plymouth, for variety's sake.
  - Fit your heroes to one of the 7 virtues and your villains to one of the 7 deadly sins (don't everybody pick lust, now ;) (Wink) ).
  Charity / Greed
  Kindness / Envy
  Temperance / Gluttony
  Diligence / Sloth
  Purity / Lust
  Humility / Pride
  Patience / Wrath

  - Create a profile using one of the standard character sheets (format details are in the description)
Steelboro Stat Template by Doctor-Awkward


If you're not sure about the content or have any other questions, just send me a note!


IN ADDITION: I will be selecting my favorite hero and favorite villain on top of the finalists. The winner of each will receive two free request pieces of up to 4 characters each!


This contest/collab will run for a full month, so you have until August 13 to submit your ideas. Good luck!
