Hey folks! I love super heroes and heroines, and have noticed a shortage of LGBT heroes. I have a particular soft spot for the transgender or transexual community, and thought about creating a hero that is a mix of both genders. Here are my ideas so far. Origin story: Started out as one male and one female, who somehow fused due to alien abduction. The human guy's name is Andrew Gin and the human girls name is Ginny Anders. Powers/traits: while in combined male form, the hero is caucasian with black hair and brown eyes and has super strength, advanced intellect, flight, super speed, race/gender swap ability, healing factor, rainbow beams from eyes and hands and "empathy beams". They also have a vagina instead of a penis in male form, but otherwise are completely male. While in combined female form they are black haired with brown eyes and a skin tone in common with other native americans.She is of American aboriginal decent and have a penis and testicles but are otherwise female, powers/traits: race and gender swap ability ( can change sex at will as well as ethnicity) super speed, healing factor, advanced intellect, agility, rainbow beams from eyes and hands, flight and "empathy beams". Empathy beams affect the gender opposite of the heroes current gender, sort of like mind control only instead of brain washing it just lets the hero reason with criminals. Also, empathy beams are colored like rainbows ( to play off the idea of inclusiveness and the LGBT flag ).The costume: black or dark blue with the LGBT rainbow stripes across the chest as well as rainbow gloves and boots, and a blue/black mask that covers the eyes and nose. No cape. Weaknesses : villains who are physically/mentally stronger ( i.e. more super strength or extrasensory based powers )high voltage electricity/magic/ distortions in reality renders the hero powerless and in high doses can temporarily split the hero into their original female and male forms (regular human forms) or even kill the hero. Now heres where I need help. I can draw the male form as well as male genitals but I suck at the female form. Also What should the heroes "super hero "name be? I would like the name to be politically correct as well as suitable for either gender.The man an woman are strangers to each other until they are abducted and fused together by aliens. Also, I need super villains for the hero.The arch nemesis could be someone based on hate or prejudice, whose powers lead humanity to destroy itself and only the LGBT hero can save the day. I imagine this hero of ours would be good at espionage as they could appear to be any gender or race at will. I will post more ideas and maybe concept sketches as I think of them, post your ideas or suggestions below and If I like them I might incorporate them in to OUR hero and his and her arch nemesis! This hero will be OUR creation! A beacon of hope for all sectors of humanity! Lets change the world for the better!!!
Update!!!! The super heroe's name will be Captain Andragyn, a play on the word androgynous.
