HeroMachine Version 2.5


Tired of Superman? The Dark Knight just isn’t lighting up your life anymore, and Spidey doesn’t quite swing like he used to? Maybe it’s time to come up with your very own, self-designed superhero. Choose a basic body type (and since this is a comic-superhero generator, expect some anatomical oddities, like bulging muscles, big bosoms and vaguely ambiguous G.I. Joe-style crotches). Then build your hero from—literally—the skin up. Choices of physical attributes include everything from pointy ears (for the Spock and Legolas fans, rejoice!) to unibrows, tails to webbed fingers. Then, of course, there are the weaponry and costume choices. Name your hero and write your own legend. It’s as much fun as you can have without leaving your parents’ basement.
