Greetings, Sentinels fans! Today, September 4th, officially kicks off our Create a Villain contest!
From now until September 28th, we will be taking entries (limited to 2 entries per person, please). For your entry, please include descriptions of the villain's look and abilities, plus whatever other "flavor" elements you feel are important to the villain. It is not necessary to include art, but we will accept art as part of the entry, so if you feel it would help us understand the villain better, feel free to send pictures along with your descriptions. Similarly, you do not have to include a full deck list and flip mechanic for your character, but doing so will certainly give your entry an advantage.
In terms of flavor and theme, the next set is based on time travel and alternate realities, so your villain should be tied in to that somehow. Feel free to tie your character's story to that of other existing characters and locations from Sentinels of the Multiverse, but also know that we may change any/all of such things, if your character is selected.
To submit an entry, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "Create a Villain contest" in the subject line. Remember, include as much or as little info/art as you want per character, and no more than two entries per person. We will no longer be accepting entries as of the end of the 28th, and I will post an official end announcement at that time. The winning villain will be announced the first week of October.
I look forward to your villains! Bring on the bad guys!
Here's all the stuff lawyers love! Silliness aside, it is important:
