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.

We feel for it, because of our lack of advanced art.
