295: The Cricket

Dipping into my childhood for this next one. The first super I ever created the Cricket! With his leg enhanced for super jumping power this hero metes out justice with armed with dual tuning forks named the Cricket's song!

i like this one a lot, mainly cus u made it so long ago and it makes sooooo much since.

Chuck-key Upshur said...

don't u think that he needs a nemesis or something?

Everett Downing said...

Oh he does. I remember my friend made up his enemy called Dragonfly, but I don't think I'm going that direction.

Hi Everett,

I was wondering if you ever played any superhero RPGs (tabletop roleplaying games, like Dungeons & Dragons) when you were growing up, and if so, are you still a gamer?

K.R. Whalen said...

I can dig this. Very cool concept.

Fantastic job on the Cricket. This looks like it came off the pages of a silver age comic. 70 more supers to go. =)

btw, I wanted to bring up that you seem to have made two heroes that are rather similar in name and appearance.

Just wanted to point that out.

I just wanted to tell you I love this blog and to submit a name… Jungle Gem. As you were.

Everett Downing said...

Joe- I may have played a super RPG once (or dozens of times) and I freely admit I still manage to get me geek on every once in awhile.

K.R.- Thanks!

Adam- Thanks. Yeah, I admit, I noticed that, but I really liked the name cape Cadaver, maybe I'll mess with his look to distinguish him from Captain Cadaver.

rufiojones- Thanks man. That name is awesome.

The dual tuning-forks are a great, great gimmick. Outstanding.

Thanks

Hey Kim. I was 12-13 when I made up the Cricket.
