Name Our Character, For Prizes!

by | Feb 28, 2018

Pop Culture Classroom is publishing a new comic book featuring our superhero kids’ team, The Greatest Team Ever.

We need your help naming one of the team members, so we’re having a contest!

The winner will receive a free 3 day badge to Denver Comic Con 2018, and will be thanked in the first issue of The Greatest Team Ever, as well as receiving 5 complimentary copies of the comic!

It’s free to enter; just look at the picture and bio below, and submit your entries in the comments. You can submit as many ideas as you like!

Real Life Name: Barbara Cuestas
Age: 10 years old

History/personality: Barbara is new to town, so she often feels out of place. But she has a big personality and usually tries to comfort anyone who feels the same way. But when Barbie is pushed too far, her explosive temper shows itself.

Superhero self: Barbara imagines herself as (YOUR NAME IDEA HERE), the fiery fearless heroine, with the power of light!

 

Submissions will be open from February 28 – March 6, 2018.

After that, the top 3 finalists will be posted online for you to vote on, from March 9 – 12, 2018. Our winner will be announced on March 14th, 2018.

Good luck!

    Firestar Phoenix!

    A bit of a twist on a lesser known Marvel human mutant (Firestar) who had such powers as Microwave radiation manipulation, Flight and Electromagnetic energy wavelength disruption but adding in powers of the Phoenix with fire and rebirth.

    Interestingly enough, the Marvel character Firestar also wore a yellow outfit.

    Nova sterlys

    Nova, because she bursts into her superhero self
    Ster, because its the Dutch word for Star, which is on her uniform.
    Lys, because its the Danish word for Light, which is her power.
    I chose the languages of Dutch and Danish because they had very advanced star charts around the beginning of those two languages.

    I would have submitted STARFLASH had I known before the deadline about this contest. My favorite out of the ideas above is Starburst, assuming there’s no trademark issues.
