Glass Battle Villains by symonxThe DeviantArt community has spoken in the Glass Heroes vs. Villains Community Battle, and you’ve chosen to side with our heroes! Check out the winning side’s characters and browse all the other entries.
Watch Trailer

Create an original character

for M. Night Shyamalan's Glass and set the course for the future of the world!

What would you do to save the world, or possibly destroy it all?

M. Night Shyamalan's Glass film takes this question to the extreme. Whether you're on the side of David Dunn, the Beast, or Mr. Glass, it's very likely that heroes live among us, but how we let the world know of their existence—and whether their existence will save or destroy the world—is entirely up to you.

For this contest, you're invited to create an entirely new character in the Glass story arc. Be inspired by events in the film, as well as whatever your imagination may have in mind. Whether they're a hero or a villain, don't forget to give your character a convincing backstory that makes their journey even more interesting.

Two (2) First Place and six (6) Second Place winners will be chosen by M. Night Shyamalan himself. Winning entries will then take part in a community battle, pitting heroes against villains on DeviantArt to determine who will reign supreme.

My hero or villain would probably be someone who is between evil and good someone who keeps balance of life.  I would love to render and create such character but I found out about this contest too late.  Congratd to the winners/

I'd want too to create my Glass persona, but my art skills are too basic, but not my textual imagination, like yours.

My Glass OC, from the Hero faction, made textually.

Real Name: Manuel Vargas

Alias/es: Ojo de Lince (Lynx Eye)

Nacionality: Argentinian

Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius

Powers and Abilities: Taekwondo mastery, eye-spotting and drug power manifestation (weed to fix things by sheer mind and will, cocaine to destroy by sheer strength, LSD to camouflage and change the area's colors, heroine to create illusions, etc).

Personality: Calm, albeit timid, frustrated, pressed, remorseful but willingly perseverant to solve things that cannot be solved in the past.

Information: He has a calm, yet undecisive behavior, he can be startled off by ironic or acting trivialities which cause him to get infuriated. Also, in case of broken or lost things, he, without wanting to obsess himself, hopes to get his things returned, but when he does not recover them successfully, he displays thoughts of wanting to fix things in the past, also related to his familiars.

One of the most known habits of Manuel, is of pretending to use a drug depending on the mood he is on; when he acts relaxed, he pretends to smoke weed, when he goes enraged, he pretends to inhale cocaine until reaching the part of faking a angry shout after it, and there are many examples he sometimes does, but not to think himself of a drug addict, indeed.

I mean that you and me, aren't much skilled in art, but you can create it via imagination, but that's the crude reality of this site: feeling like a basic artist, not knowing what would be your main artistic interest, and not participating in a contest.

But let's ignore it, we know that some events we've watched have ended upon past weeks. We know that we regret ourselves of not doing a great task to an event that will not come back again, but we cannot give ourselves up, we have to keep moving forward, demonstrate to the site on how to be an artist even if our belated attempts of joining your textual imagination in a event end up in vain. Nobody dislikes nor downtalks us, it's just our imagination or creativity that has its flaws, but we could change, for our own good.

Hello folks, I'm curious ... what do you think of this story? It would be the plot of a possible fourth film, the sequel of Glass. I wrote it for my villain... but there is also a hero!

------------------------------------**************************----------------------------**********************************-------------------------*******************

Ter X Mask is the name of my villain. He is a villain without redemption. He is a criminal of the past who lives for revenge and the conquest of power. He has no mercy for anyone and considers everyone useful but nobody necessary. He is a puppeteer who never fights on the front lines by cleverly avoiding direct confrontations.

He knows human weaknesses and exploits them. He often shows himself deceptively good, protective, even paternal, but inside himself he is the exact opposite.

No one knows his real name or his face, horribly burned as also an important part of his body. His only weak point is the arrogance that sometimes becomes megalomania.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To frame him better, I imagined the sequel of Glass that I summarized in the lines below.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scene 01: Background

The facts take place on the Earth of a distant past on a lost continent: 10,000 years before the contemporary period, two guys chase a third one in the midst of the ruins of a city devastated by war. The pursuers are policemen. The persecuted is a criminal (he will be called Ter X Mask in the future).

One of the two policemen will be killed by the criminal. The dying cop tells his colleague (whose name is Trevelian) to avenge him and block the criminal at the cost of using his power.

Trevelian is initially hesitant either because that power can irreparably damage the target person or because he is a good person and he has no violent nature. But then he changes his mind.

All three men belong to a civilization that will soon be defeated by an invading enemy.

The invading enemy is an alien army that will annihilate all evolved terrestrial civilizations to avoid competitors in the universe and therefore will build the Order of the Illuminati (composed of terrestrial traitors, servants of the aliens themselves) to neutralize the Superhumans (both Heroes and Villains) and control and regulate the technological development of survivors.

In particular, the Superhumans must not become aware of their powers and must not become a reference point for ordinary people who are always looking for guides to follow.

Ter X Mask will try to discourage Trevelian by saying: "'everything is burning, our people will not survive, our common enemies have won, and you're still chasing me !! You're crazy !!' '.

Trevelian is able to enter the bodies of others to control them for a short time and he try to do so even with Ter X Mask. He will succeed but not enough to oblige him to commit suicide or self-neutralization because the selfish will of the other is too strong.

The criminal manages to escape by means of a flying shuttle.

The other one remains on the ground and apparently dies from burns due to the shuttle's reactors and the injuries sustained in the fight with Ter X Mask himself.


Scene 02: in the Ter X Mask lair

We are in the contemporary age, precisely the third day after David Dunn's death.

David Dunn wakes up sitting in a wheelchair. He can't explain himself how it's possibile but he is still alive.

In front of him on a monitor the images of what happened, including his death, flow.

He does not understand and seems disoriented. He doesn't even know where he is.

At that moment Ter X Mask makes its appearance: it is a man in a wheelchair whose face is covered by a sort of gas mask and whose head is hooded. He is not paralytic and can even get up and walk (but the viewer at the beginning doesn’t know it and doesn’t know who he is) but his precarious health conditions prevent him from doing it constantly.

His wheelchair is driven by an attendant who turns out to be an Android he commands with his Telepathy.

The viewer must be led to believe that somehow behind the gas mask there is Trevelian or even Glass returned to life.

Ter X Mask tells David Dunn to be his friend, to be a Hero who has the power to Resurrect People (as well as to kill them with his mortal touch, but obviously this doesn't tell him) as long as the their bodies are intact, well preserved and they haven’t been dead for a long time.

Ter X Mask explains to David Dunn that he learned about him from the media.

Looking at the video of the clash in front of the Psychiatric Clinic he learned two important things:

1. new Superhumans are born

2. Dr. Ellie Staple is a member of the Illuminati because she had three Superhumans killed.

Later he managed to steal David's body stolen from the morgue.

Ter X Mask convinces David Dunn to act according to his plans: first, to attack the psychiatric hospital manned by some mercenaries affiliated with the Illuminati to kill them and obtain information.


Scene 03: The Morgue

Third  day after David Dunn's death.

The scene moves to the morgue where david Dunn's son Joseph arrives because he's informed that his father's body has disappeared.

In fact, viewing the video footage of the cameras that monitor the area he discovers that the body of David Dunn (Bruce Willis) was stolen by the same hospital staff who have no memory of it and was taken on a stretcher to an ambulance which is then gone away (on it there were the Android and Ter X Mask who has acted using his Persuasion power on the hospital staff where the morgue is located after simulating to be wounded in the ambulance).

But from the videos, Joseph also learns that Kevin Wendell Crumb only reanimated himself a few minutes after the theft and left by his own..

The scene has shown by the security videos.


Scene 04: Casey Cooke's Home

Third day / night of the fourth day after David Dunn's death.

The scene moves to Casey Cooke's house where someone knocks on the door. It is Kevin Wendell Crumb who is looking for a safe place to take refuge. He appears to have regenerated his wounds. Casey Cooke immediately realizes that he is possessed by what he believes to be one of his dormant personalities, one of those that never emerged before, but she doesn't know she is wrong.

Kevin Wendell Crumb behaves in a serious, determined, but also gentle and patient way towards her.

Then he explains that David Dunn has also disappeared and that he has to look for him. He does not specify why but she senses that something is wrong and, although he doesn’t yet know that David Dunn has been revived, he feels that Kevin Wendell Crumb believes David is alive and dangerous.

While Kevin rests she prepares a backpack with food and things he might need.

But in sleep his childish personality wakes up due to a nightmare.

Realizing this, she questions him about the identity of the other personality.

The child replies that he doesn’t know it because that personality is not accessible to others.

She becomes suspicious and puts in his backpack a smartphone with a GPS application to track him.

When Kevin Wendell Crumb leaves her home she calls Joseph.

The two meet at her home and tell each other what they know.


Scene 05: The Psychiatric Clinic

Fourth day, evening after David Dunn's death.

David Dunn, Ter X Mask and his attendant arrive at the Psychiatric Clinic.

Kevin Wendell Crumb anticipate them, also because he is able to smell the presence of other Superhumans although within a limitated distance from him.

He arrives earlier and enters the Psychiatric Clinic from the roof without being seen by anyone.

Ter X Mask stays out and sends in David Dunn who kills several Illuminati affiliates. When he is about to attack their Commander, Kevin Wendell Crumb intervenes and temporarily assumes the form of the Horde.

The Commander escapes but, outside, Ter X Mask is waiting for him. The Villain uses the power of Persuasion to learn about the location of the Illuminati power center.

Then he kills him with his Mortal Touch.

Inside the clinic, the fight is won by David Dunn who does not hesitate to launch the final attack and knock out the Horde without killing him (something does not convince him about the man in front of him). Instead he will tell Ter X Mask that he did it.

Outside David Dunn again meets Ter X Mask which reveals to him the second phase of the plan: to go to the Illuminati's den and destroy it with a bomb. But he is only saying half the truth: the destructive potential of the bomb is such as to destroy the entire city.

Ter X Mask not only wants to destroy the Illuminati's lair, which is also one of the many centers of power on Earth, but wants to send a message to the whole world, to demonstrate its real power. David Dunn is just the expendable pawn that will have to place the bomb.

While Ter X Mask shows the bomb to David Dunn, the heroe feels a strange sensation and feels paralyzed and devoid of will.

Ter X Mask believes he is hesitant for fear that the explosion also kills innocent people but he guarantees that this will not happen.

Ter X Mask is always deceptively reassuring, almost paternal. In reality he believes to be a god of manipulation and doesn’t realize that he is in danger because at that moment David Dunn is controlled by someone who wants to kill him, but being too weak he will simply steal the informations he needs.

David Dunn doesn't really understand what has happened because he never felt such a sensation. So, come back free after a few minutes, he decides to follow the plan.

After explaining to David Dunn how to proceed, the villain lead David to the headquarters of the Order of the Illuminati.

Unbeknownst to all, Joseph and Casey Cooke see the conversation between David and the two mysterious men.

Joseph is shocked to see his father alive.

They stand still until the three men leave the garden of the Clinic. While they are wondering who the two mysterious guys are, they don't realize that Kevin, that they had followed thanks to the app on his Smartphone, took them by surprise.

Curiously he reassures the boys and tells them to disappear because this is a bigger issue than them.

The girl asks him who he really is. But he doesn't answer.

Continuing to ignore the activity of the app on his smartphone he follows the other three.

The boys decide to follow him.


Scene 06: the skyscraper of the Illuminati Order

The scene moves into the skyscraper.

The Illuminati still do not know why they lost contact with their commando at the Psychiatric Clinic.

David Dunn enters the building carrying the bomb with him.

With him there is the android that unbeknownst to him has the task of watching over him and then of getting rid of him once the placement has taken place.

Ter X Mask remains outside, as usual hidden, as a puppeteer.

Kevin climbs the building to stop David Dunn, sure he was tricked by the Villain.

A firefight ensues.

Dr. Ellie Staple and her Chief (a kind of Hooded Freemason) are attacked by David Dunn and the Android while trying to get out of the placement building. Ellie Staple runs away.

Kevin finds the bomb and manages to defuse it.

The Android attacks David Dunn treacherously (and for the occasion manifests a terrible force) and seriously wounds him.

But at that moment he is attacked by the Horde who, thanks also the help of David himself, detaches his head, showing that it is an Android.

Kevin misterious personality explains to David that his benefactor is not a benefactor at all.

Meanwhile, Ellie Staple comes out of the building where she meets Ter X Mask, this time standing. She has two guards with her.

He uses Persuasion and forces them to shoot each other.

She terrified asks him who he is and the Mask explains her that he is a criminal who has survived the past tahnks to his thirst for revenge and power.

He explains how he saved himself with his aircraft then struck by the aliens and arrived at his destination in his base where, though seriously injured, he had managed to cure himself and put himself in a state of suspended animation.

Then, satisfied, he kills her with the Touch of Death.

Meanwhile, Kevin's mysterious personality reveals something important to David that so decides to leave the building, reach Ter X Mask and take time telling him that the Android fell into battle.

Unfortunately he does not know that the other is telepathic and controlled his servant.

Ter X Mask surprises David with his mortal touch but David doesn’t die immediately because he is a Superhuman.

Just when the criminal is about to kill him, he freezes as possessed by an external entity.

It is Trevelian, the mysterious personality of Kevin, the same one who, through his powers, managed to save him from death by regenerating his fabrics.

Ter X Mask recognizes the voice that resonates in his head and asks him how he can still be alive.

Trevelian explains that before he died of wounds and burns he was rescued by a man in which he had transferred his soul.

In this way he survived from generation to generation only to find and kill him.

Trevelian, controlling Ter X Mask's body, forced him to take off the gas mask that allows him to breathe. Ter X Mask suffocates.

Then Trevelian returns to Kevin's body. Unfortunately Trevelian has been out of Kevin's body too long and realizes that his time has come.

Meanwhile, the boys arrive to rescue the dying David Dunn.

Trevelian uses the last minutes of his life to explain what happened.

He also explains that his presence in a body could destabilize his psyche. For this reason he had always chosen bodies of strong people, interacting with them as little as possible. But in the case of Kevin he had to make an exception because he had noticed that he was a Superhuman. And the Superhumans attract the attention of the Illuminati, the very ones that Ter X Mask wanted to find.

The real cause of Kevin's schizophrenia is him. But dying him, Kevin will also stabilize. With this gift he abandons it forever.

The dying David Dunn speaks with Kevin, finally come back to his senses, and asks him to take his place.

David Dunn dies forever in the arms of the son and the girl.

Kevin Wendell Crumb becomes David Dunn's heir.
