Design a character and play Flipping Death before release!

Want to play Flipping Death before everyone else AND put your own mark on it? This week we give you the chance to design your very own character and get a copy of the game before release!

Flipping Death is filled with weird and quirky characters, and now we want you to put your own spin on one of them! Hear Klaus and Alex tell you all about it in this week’s Zoink Zhow (or scroll down if you’re eager for the details).

Design the Doctor

Flatwood Peaks already has its very own superhero. Or at least, had. Unfortunately, he’s recently deceased. Split in half, in fact, by his biggest nemesis – town villain Doctor Laser!

But who is Doctor Laser? We really don’t know, and this is where we pass the pen over to you. What does the Doctor look like? Who is she/he? And what drives someone to laser-slice up the town hero? Post a sketch and give us some much-needed information! We’ll use your sketch and the backstory you create to set up the puzzle surrounding these two troublemakers.

What we need

  • A sketch of the Doctor (a living person or a ghost)
  • A short description of her/him

What’s in the prize pot

  • Your sketch transformed into an actual in-game character
  • Signed Doctor Laser artwork
  • Your own tombstone or portrait in Flipping Death
  • A spot as a ZEO – A Zoink Executive Official!
  • A copy of Flipping Death before everyone else!

Deadline to submit your entry is Thursday, June 29 at midnight (CEST).

So grab your pen, or open Paint! Share your marvelous artwork with us in the comments or post it on Twitter and tag @ZoinkGames!

  • I’m no sketch artist, I’m afraid, but I do have an idea…

    Appearance:

    Doctor Laser (first name Doctor, last name Laser) is a living, evil doctor conjoined with her twin brother Gary. She and her brother are tall and slender with long arms and dextrous hands. They both have dark, medium-length, frizzy hair.

    Doctor Laser is never seen without her portable surgical laser, and Gary is never seen without his phone. Doctor Laser’s side of the body wears a somewhat-stained doctor’s outfit, and Gary’s side wears a flannel shirt and jeans, the two outfits being stitched together down the center. Both twins have goatees.

    Background:

    From a young age, the precocious Doctor was obsessed with figuring out a way to separate herself from her twin brother, developing a passion for cutting and slicing while performing heinous experiments. When she was six, she once solved a Rubik’s Cube by cutting it into 27 separate pieces and gluing them back together.

    However, she eventually realized that if she stuck together with her brother, the police would be unable to send her to jail — no matter how many evil acts she committed — since to do so would also mean imprisoning an innocent man. To help confuse the police, Doctor Laser wears a fake goatee in order to resemble her twin brother.

    Technically, Doctor Laser is, in fact, a Doctor of Sliceology (making her full title Dr. Doctor Laser, or Doctor Laser, Sl.D.) and was previously Flatwood Peaks Hospital’s expert resident sliceologist. The portable surgical laser is her preferred tool due to the fact that lasers are cool (although actually, in fact, surgical lasers are quite hot to the touch).

    After the hospital fired her for installing a sawblade trap in the cafeteria kitchen (that’s what happens to line cooks who skimp on the bacon slices for her BLTs), Doctor Laser stole the hospital’s portable surgical laser and began her career as a full-time villainess.

    In her spare time, she carves ice sculptures and is remarkably good at them.

    Doctor Laser’s brother, Gary, is just a normal guy who really doesn’t like his sister’s evil ways but is too laid-back to change them. Sometimes he makes a half-hearted attempt to stop her, but he’s usually too engrossed with his phone to accomplish much.

    I suck at drawing, but a sketch is a sketch so something.

    Short back story:
    Doctor Lasar started as a friendly Doctor in town, that all went to for help. A new Doctor got to town, he was much better, our then good Doctor Lasar killed him brutally, Bond style, a Lasar cut his body in two. Then he found that he loved what he just had done. He felt he did not wanna drag people to his home, to cut them up, so he build in a laser in his eye, so he can kill on the fly.

    Appearance:
    He has a doctor coat
    Laser eye
    Metallic spikes in his hair
    Pointy ear.

    This is going to be strange but here we go 🙂

    Backstory:

    Doctor Laser was originally “Doctor Disco”…a dancing enthusiast who loved disco dancing in club, so much so that he would create a name like Dr Disco. He loved it so much that he set up his own “club” in his apartment fully equipped with disco ball and laser lights. He would disco dance to loud music every night. Due to noise complaints, our Superhero (as most Superheros would do) responded to politely ask him to turn his music down. Unfortunately, our Superhero didn’t know his own strength and instead of just knocking on the apartment door, he punched the door so hard it crashed through the apartment and wrecking Doctor Disco’s “club”. In addition, the Disco Ball laser device fell from the ceiling and got lodged into Doctor Disco’s head. From that day forward he became Doctor Laser. He went from a fun loving Disco Dancer, to a mad man hell bent on getting his revenge with his new built-in Laser device!

    Appearance:

    doctor laser is a electrical engineer who has no idea what he is doing but gets lucky with his mistakes and tries to pass them off as intentional out of embarrassment and fear of being found out. the super weapon he’s now known for was actually a failed attempt at making a toaster oven! why did his his toaster design include such a expensive lens? he’s just that clueless, but he doesn’t want people to find out he killed the town hero because of a ridiculous mistake on his lunch break and took of the name doctor laser and is now forced to be a villain under a name that mocks him because he wanted the perfect toasted bread sandwiches and bring joy to the gluttonous glutenous people of the world.

    before the incident he looked normal but afterwards to play the part he took on the whole mad scientist stereotype, goggle, Eisenstein hair and curly mustache(the kind that ties people to train tracks), and night vision goggles cause they’re the only ones that look like what’s in his imagination of a mad scientist. also a apron and oven mitts instead of a lab coat and gloves cause they have the same purpose and reminds him of his dream. but every time he tries again he just makes a bigger laser.

    Dr. Laser and his pet cat PawPaw (living)
    After a freaky laser radiation in his lab causing his pet cat to grow into a gigantic monstrosity with camouflaging power, Dr. Laser had to find a way to feed his pet so he start robbing bank. The laser gun he holds is actually a laser pointer. His pet chases around the laser pointer and destroy anything pointed by it, leaving trail of humongous scratch mark. The laser gun on his hat can actually shoot laser beam but it is way too weak for any destructive action.

    While he started doing his heist because he wanted to feed his pet, he has become mad with power or it might be caused by the radiation from the laser gun he wears as a hat.

    Just for the sake of blowing things up here’s a different direction. He’s a former super-star of [create your own ridiculous television show with jacked up dudes and dudettes] who, after a terrible accident televised for the world to see, was shamed and outcast. In a moment of weakness he took up with a shady promoter for an underground fighting league, but his muscles weren’t good enough. He then underwent a painful back-alley surgery that grafted a laser (the promoter had a sick sense of humor) to his [insert convenient body part here].

    Tormented by ghosts of his past, and clouded by a mix of black market painkillers and steroids, he goes on a rampage, only stopping after he killed some townspeople and even the town’s hero. Now wracked with guilt, he is even more unstable and unpredictable.

    Doctor Laser

    From a young age (around the age of six when he was chastised by ruthless classmates for waving at people who weren’t there) Laslo Spinx, an already scientifically gifted young boy realised that he could see dead people.

    Initially this was a great thing for young Laslo, or ‘Loner Laslo’ if you were one of his classmates, as he had very few living friends, acquaintances or even family members to speak of. The exception to this rule was his ever supportive, scientist mother, Linda Spinx, who also shared Laslo’s gift of being able to communicate with the dead and knew all too well the trials of being pushed aside by the members of society of didn’t consider her abilities and practices ‘normal.’

    However; it is important to note that little Laslo could only see the dead, he could never speak to them, much to his frustration as you can imagine. His mother on the other hand was able to speak to them, through a form of telepathy, but not perceive them visually. Realising the short-comings of their respective abilities they became a mother and sonteam; communing with the dead and solving all sorts of problems that were keeping lost souls tethered to this plane of existence and making a pretty penny or too in the process. Many years were spent helping people, both living and dead, find peace with the transition of death and Laslo, and his mother, truly believed they had found their calling after so many years of being outcast by society. They were finally contributing to the world and being praised for doing so.

    However, during an investigation at an old abandoned factory (locals had reported strange lights floating behind the windows at night), that initially appeared to be fairly straightforward and ‘by the book’ by all accounts – Linda Spinx was found dead after getting separated from her son during their initial sweep of the building. The only clues at the scene of death were the words ‘I hear them, I hear them all’ written in the dirt next to her cold, unmarked body.

    By this time Laslo was studying Laser Physics at University alongside his work as a professional medium. His hope was to find a way of developing a laser that would bridge the gap completely between the living world and that of the dead and will, making his job as a medium all the more effective. The death of his mother however sent him into a spiral of madness – the unanswered questions, the nature of her death and the idea of loosing the only person in the world (living or dead) that he had a connection with was too much to take. The final straw however came one night no longer than a month after his mother’s untimely demise. While working late into the evening, on his latest laser physics project, in a desperate bid to drown out the reminders of his mother’s death – she appeared before him. As she floated there in his lab she told him exactly how she had died, and who had killed her but as we know; Laslo could only see the dead – not hear them.

    In a fit of madness, realising that he was so close to the answers he needed and yet so far from ever achieving them, Laslo took the laser he was working on and attempted to blind himself in the hopes of putting an end to his now torturous ability forever. Little did he realise how close his laser had been to being finished… the laser did not blind him – instead it heightened his ability, so much so that Laslo became able to destroy the dead simply by looking at them. He realised this upon gazing upon the ghost of his mother as the haze in his vision started to clear. Although only a ghost she still believed she could help her son and thus rushed to his aid upon seeing him raise the laser to his eyes. But when their eyes met, she was instantaneously reduced to nothing more than ectoplasmic dust, the mystery of her death and her killer disappearing forever.

    From that day forward Laslo Spinx vowed to rid the world of all ghosts in a bid to prevent anyone ever having to suffer the same loss as him. The fact that as long as there were people being born – there would always be people dying, and in turn becoming ghosts, never seemed to dawn on Laslo, driven mad by grief and power but pretty soon that didn’t matter. Laslo Spinx was no more – he became known as Doctor Laser; a man known throughout the underworld as a killer of ghosts. Many heroes tried to stop him in the living world but his extensive knowledge of Laser Physics made him a formidable force. Most heroes were swiftly dispatched without much effort on the Doctor’s part only to be hunted down a second time in the afterlife before never being heard of again.

    Doctor Laser became the first man to be feared across two planes of existence, a feat never achieved before, and yet his brilliant mind has still never stopped to ask consider – what will he do when he becomes a ghost? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d7a3459f56b098668d70618679a6a7e6d91780cb780376cdb4d3858ae641d08b.jpg

    Description:

    Currently, Dr. Laser is the town villain, who killed the previous super hero, The Crusher. She can fly and shoot lasers out of her eyes. Her eyes are said to be pure insanity lased with evil, and her heart is split in two. Her lab coat has holes and tears all across it, and her head is bald in many different spots.

    Back story/your mission

    The dead super hero who was cut in half by Dr. Laser, formerly known as The Crusher, has assigned you to avenge his death and kill Dr. Laser. He tells you before his death Dr. Laser was just known as the mad scientist of the town, and she had worked in many different types of lasers. (All of which are about the size of a child and are not portable, just to give you a picture.) From deadly ones that could electrocute you, cut you, burn you, turn you insane, etc., to those that had different beneficial effects that could make you fly, increase your strength; or even give you your own laser vision. She had created the previous super hero in town, but unfortunately she died fighting a monstrous whale. So, after The Crusher moved to town, he already had super strength and immediately started saving civilians. After hearing of the whale that killed the former super hero, he immediately crushed it, giving himself the name, The Crusher. Soon he was more popular and praised than anyone alive.

    Dr. Laser told The Crusher she could increase his super strength with one of her lasers. Most of her lasers are highly dangerous and experimental, and even the beneficial ones could have horrible side effects, but after he moved in town she claimed that she had perfected the super strength laser. The Crusher went into her lab agreeing that it would be nice to have super-super strength. Unfortunately instead of firing the super strength laser, the laser that was fired at The Crusher cut him in half, killing him immediately.

    Dr. Laser had tricked The Crusher, and to finish out her plot, she fired lasers at herself, supposedly to make her the most powerful person alive, but she fired the insanity laser, too. The murder of The Crusher, and the fact she obviously did it to become more powerful, made her beyond hated by literally everyone. Now that she’s insane she mindlessly attacks people with her laser vision while flying in the air. This of course made her known as the town villain, and the one to kill. It’s said that she has a heart cut in half, and people assume it’s because of one of the laser’s side effects.

    So to begin the mission, you possess Dr. Laser with intent of avenging The Crusher. When you initially possess her she’s in her new hidden underground base. (When she killed The Crusher it was in her lab, but she had to stay hidden, so she moved to this new hidden base. The police did however confiscate her lasers and most of her stuff.)

    You search the base as Dr. Laser looking for a way to kill her (ironically while in her). After stumbling upon many different things,
    you find a tape of what happened when she killed The Crusher. You watch it and it begins showing what really happened.

    Instead of seeing a sly and suspicious Dr. Laser, you see what appears to be a flirtatious Dr. Laser. She’s complimenting The Crusher when she casually and seductively leans her elbow on one of her lasers. It fires right at The Crusher and cuts him in
    half. Screaming and crying, she fires many more of her lasers to try to bring him back to life, shouting that one of them had to work. However, she continually fires them at herself on accident, giving her the ability to fly, and laser vision. After nothing works, she bends down and starts crying over the now dead Crusher. Her heart literally breaks due to the loss of The Crusher.

    The last thing you see on the tape is her getting up and the insanity laser firing at her. Her eyes lose all sign of humanity, and she
    screeches like a banshee. Insane and heartbroken, she crashes out the window and starts spreading horror.

    You realize that instead of avenging the crusher by killing Dr. Laser, you need to save her. She’s insane, broken hearted, and everyone in town hates her. However, if you can un-insane her by retrieving her lasers that are now in police custody, prove to
    everyone in town that she didn’t mean to kill The Crusher, and somehow let her know the Crusher doesn’t hate her, you could save her.

    When you possess Dr. Laser you can fly and use laser vision. The first thing you need to do is make it into the electronic safe inside the police station holding her lasers. If you fire the insanity laser at her, you can undo its effects. If people see you, they shoot at you, being the town villain you’re definitely the most wanted. So you have to fly into the air out of range. After making it to the station you can use your laser vision to hack into the safe. You find the insanity laser and shoot it at yourself/Dr. Laser (not sure how to refer to some who’s possessed).

    After being shot by the insanity laser her eyes regain humanity. Dr. Laser exclaims she hasn’t thought so clearly in years. When you fly through town as people shoot at you, she’s very confused though. Next, you need to prove she’s not a villain to everyone in town. You have to retrieve the tape of what really happened with The Crusher and show that it was an accident.

    You get the tape, and fly to the drive-in theater. After avoiding many civilians and trying to ignore the funny yet annoying commentary of possessed and confused Dr. Laser, you plug the tape into the projector and everyone sees it was an accident. You un-possess her but she’s still broken hearted.

    You go back to death land and tell The Crusher everything. After thinking about it a moment he actually says that initially he liked her. He tells you to go fly out into a field while possessing her, and use her laser vision to carve out TC + DL in a heart. She might be confused about why she unwillingly did that, but she’ll know The Crusher likes her too, and her heart will hopefully be whole again. After doing so her heart becomes whole, and The Crusher can rest in peace knowing that his crush, and the person crushing on him, was the last person he saw, so that means he actually died undefeated.

    Ok, Alexandra. here it comes. =).
    Doctor Laser is an living, atheist scientistmen (who loves accordion music), who build his own mini particle accelerator. He wanted to prof that there is no life after death, no ghosts, so he sliced up the other super hero guy just to prove his thesis.
    Unfortunately hi was wrong. now he uses the particle accelerator with slice laser functions.. The thing about laser is that it works both on living people and on dead.

    I hope to see the atheist Doctor Laser in the game!

    Ok here goes, Unfortunately im not good at sketching so i had to open up gimp and paint over the original sketch i made.

    Dr laser born Bernie Tiddlesworth was a happy child with the dream of one day becoming Flatwood peaks highest ranked superhero. he trained and trained, spent months designing costumes and spent even longer trying to create his own momentous theme tune.

    when Bernie turned 11 years old he was diagnosed with an incurable disease meaning over time he would become unable to walk and developed a severely crooked spine.

    Bernie spent the rest of his life studying to become a doctor in the hope that one day he could cure his own illness and become the hero Flatwood Peaks needs (Captain Unbearable).

    Upon finding no cure inside of medicine the now doctor studied more untraditional methods, Splicing, Laser therapy ETC.

    DR Laser creates a device that he thinks will be able to cure him and he decides to test it on himself one night, The test is a complete failure, the laser does nothing to cure his disease but it did manage cut a perfectly straight line all the way down the DR’s refrigeration unit, DR laser just hangs his head and takes a slow walk out of his lab.

    The next day he reads a news article hailing a super hero of Flatwood Peaks, DR Laser cant believe it and is overpowered by Jealousy, He hunts the Hero down and uses his device to cut the superhero in half. It is from this point on that DR laser decides that if he cant be Flatwood Peaks greatest superhero then Flatwood Peaks will have NO superheroes

    I dont know why but i like the idea of DR laser using a fine comb to comb his brain back like a lump of jelly

    Doctor Laser is a tinker at heart, since she first picked up a screwdriver at 6 her urge to dismantle and create new and exciting devices has only grown. She created her first arc welder at 8, she invented the sequel to the microwave at 16 and ended up completing her degree in electrical engineering 2 years early with a minor in laserology! (even in spite of the destructive tendencies of her experiments)
    She originally worked on the space program but grew bored due to stuff like “low funding”, “coworkers” and “professional ethics”. She left and began her own experimentation. She was free to do as she pleased but found that only people with money got to mess with the fun stuff. So she resorted to stealing, using her own inventions to sneak her required materials out. She got more and more ambitious, eventually making loud public appearances as the dastardly super villain… Uh, Doctor Laser.
    Although she never actually intended to hurt anyone (besides the wallets of a few billionaires) one of her plans went wrong.
    Unable to remove her latest malfunctioning laser based invention from her head she sliced the local hero into two pieces! Although she’d like to fix her mistakes and get back to inventing her helmet is still unremovable and still spewing lasers every which way.

    Presumably her quirk would be her uncooperative laser helmet and her puzzle might involve finding a way to remove the helmet so she can set the story straight.

    A few notes about my design: Her eyebrows are permanently singed off from reckless experimenting and she wraps her labcoat around her waist, forgoing wearing any more than that and her pyjamas (Who has the time to dress when there’s science to do and plutonium to steal).

    Didn’t know it was surpossed to be a villian :’) But here is it goes:

    (Sorry for bad english)
    Dr. Laser is a inventor who sells his new invention: The laser glasses. He sells the laser glasses to a super hero. The super hero wants this cool gadget because he wants to catch the criminals in the town, the supervillian in particular! The super hero can’t stop looking at himself in the mirror, because he thinks he looks so good wit his new glasses. Then the laser shoots the mirror but the laser fires back at him. This is the way he was split in half.

    The mission: You need to stop Dr. Laser from selling anymore of these dangerous laser glasses, and catch the super villian!

    Short idea:

    Dr. Laser is a women who was in a relationship with the super hero, until he broke her heart. Now Dr. Laser turnt into a villian and she has split the super hero so his heart is now broken too.

    Apologies for poor quality paper and hand writing. Here is a transcript of the hastily scrabbled together notes that I have finally had time to type up.

    Perceived as a villain due to poorly named projects (ie:D.O.O.M. Destruction of Outer Ozone Meteors), and a tendency toward accidents Dr. Laser (Dr. Leigh Zer) has been obsessed with lasers ever since her childhood observation of refraction of a laser in a diamond. After finding out she was not a candidate for laser eye surgery she decided to study Laser Physics and Optical Sciences. ( She eventually came to the same conclusion, lasers could not in fact fix her near nearsightedness). This did not lessen her infatuation with electromagnetic radiation at all and she continually searched for better ways to utilize them. Her first project, the C.H.A.O.S Laser (Color Harmonics and Optical Splendor Laser, it made rainbows) worked well until she attempted to use a magnifying glass to focus it, during which she lost her hand. She easily made a replacement hand but was sad to
    find there was not enough room to put in a laser, or more importantly, its batteries. Either way she continued her experiments. She shortly lost an eye, as well as some hair. She still has to wear glasses over the cyber eye despite its utilization of lasers.

    The D.O.O.M. laser, which she lost her arm to, was one of her more recent projects. The nameless super hero of course heard of her plans, and misinterpreted the poorly named device. During its destruction Dr. Leigh’s arm was cut off and the super hero considered her foiled.

    This was not so. At first she was quite furious, her mechanical hand and the arm attached to it were gone; she became quite elated when she realized this left ample room for the battery pack her initial design for a laser hand required. Very thankful she quickly decided to make the first use of her new arm laser to be that of carving the likeness of the handsome super hero out of stone, with a laser in the center of it. Her art completed she sent an invitation to the superhero who immediately suspected something afoul, despite the hearts scrawled all over the barely legible note (She’s a doctor after all). Upon his
    arrival she waved her new arm and went to turn on the statue-laser.

    “Come and bask in the magnificence of my endeavors” or some such sort of exclamation that could be interpreted in a myriad of ways. The hero immediately ran to the sculpture and clove it in two, but was clove in two himself immediately after by the damaged laser. Laying on his back the last thing the hero saw was some of the words the laser had burnt
    into a strategically placed billboard.

    “Thank you!” “your help with” “Laser”…” “city”. Convinced that the doctor was goading him and going
    to attempt to destroy the city he has enlisted the help of the reaper to “stop her by any means necessary.”

    Hi,
    i have some ideas about dr. Laser…

    Op_1
    This dr. isn´t a bad person, she dedicates her life to catch the blockghostorious (ghosts of square things) with her square net; She thinks this is a very important research and soon will be in the guinness records book, as the first woman-scientist who catched square ghosts around the city… the world is a possibility but she doesn´t have enough money to travel around the world, that´s why she is the local dr. Laser; One late evening, when she was hunting in the streets, accidentally fired over the head of the superhero with her ghost hunter gun, because she only saw his head over a box in the distance, but it was when the hero was trying to put on his normal clothes after a day of superhero tasks; when the hero died, he got angry about the scientist.. but she doesn´t know it

    Op_2
    This dr. Laser is a cookies bakery decorator scientist, who likes to create decorations using her laser-cutteritall-lantern, but because of her cross eyes, her atempts to cut the perfect decoration sometimes aren´t succesful and town gets affected by this; She isn´t evil, but only focused on getting the perfect decoration cut, then, one day the superhero arrives to stop her form doing this, because he got tired of painting and hidding all the mess she creates done in her experiments, in the very precise moment he entererd the lab, she fired to the wall where she had the stuff for decoration, but only failing for a few centimeters splitting the hero in the actual form we all know.

    Op_3
    this version is about a very small scientist who steps on a pair of stilts to reach the high stuff on the shelf in his lab. He has long arms and long feet, but the rest of his body is short (you know, the crazy evolution exceptions..); hi has a very samrt watch on his right hand, it it´s a very compicated thing he invented, has everything yo can imagin, even a laser that he uses to burn the candles in the roof of the lab. But that invent is very confused to use because he has forgotten how to use, he just pushes buttons, slide screens, and yell about it, but after various attempts, he succesfully manage to use it correctly (just for watch what says the weather app, because he doesn´t reach the windows in the lab and hasn´t invented a sitck to open those still); the problem with the super hero was developed the moment when doctor burned all the letters the superhero was carrying when he worked as a courier in his normal job when he acts and dress like a normal guy.

    Here is my contribution to the competition!

    Doctor Laser, originally Jöns Elmer Kruth, is no super-villain at all, just terribly misunderstood. What he is though, is extremely emotional, and clumsy. He possesses over some of the galaxy’s most intricate DIY-laser devices, capable of generating high vibrant laser beams in almost every direction and to infinite lenghts. Due to his very emotional state, he has, on occasion, tried to rid himself of the living world to become a ghost, a phantasm of the living. But because of his clumsy nature, he has yet to succeed. As a result, others frequently wind up in the ghost world instead, which has earned him a somewhat villanous reputation. Some of his more ‘fruitful’ suicidal attempts have caused him to lose multiple limbs – body parts he later, in a more calm state, have reconstructed (and refined) with old metal scraps from a nearby junkyard. The only part of him still being intact is the head – a fact that has encouraged his ‘evil’ reputation even more. The everyday life for the now called ‘Doctor Laser’ is really just too much for him to handle, with love interests, work and grocery shopping. It’s an unsolvable equation best left untouched. He finds the ghost life more peaceful, more mindful, and less dramatic.

    On one faithful day, like so many o thers, he was trying to kill himself firing a laser into a mirror (that must work, right? Reflectiveness and all). The mirror broke, the beam continuing beyond the shattered glass – splitting our beloved town hero in two halves! Doctor Laser, now pursued and despised by everybody, went into hiding, simulataineously torn between fixing the damage he had caused, or just try to kill himself off again.

    His most recent innovation that he’s currently finishing up, is a laser guillotine, designed to solely focus on beheading (since Doctor Lasers head is the only original part left of him). Will he finally find peace, or will this device spin out of control, causing more havoc than all of his previous innovations combined? Only time will tell. But probably the latter.

    Doctor laser, is alive and is descended from a family of great villains. Since she was a little girl she likes lasers, they gave her the name Dr. Laser https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6e43b2e2b479aa356c9a817d288373fe982c70b907a2d51f821198019e8e0268.jpg . Nowadays she is a very dreaded villain, but she has a secret ….. she is in love with Superhero. During her battles with this Hero, she decides to declare her love for him, but something goes wrong, when Dr. Laser will change the intensity of its laser, it gets stuck and by forcing ends up breaking and activating the deadly laser. Desperate tries to arrange but ends up shooting and hit the super hero and Split in half.
    And thats how the Superhero got split in half. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/929a6d1c087fd7110e8ea410e5528435718c3517b826abd9a742cbf9f82f3d78.jpg

    Dr. L. Azer

    Lilith Azer have suffered from bullying since she was a littlegirl. v

    At school, nobody liked her because she was both smart and beautiful. Her interest in science combined with her obsession with beauty rushed her into the world of cosmetics (for her, science is only a way to enhance beauty).

    As an engineer, she studied laser physics in order to improve the optics used in hair and tattoo removal. She used that knowledge to find a way to reverse aging by stimulating cells with her new laser technology.

    She is well-known in Flatwood Peaks for opening the first Cosmetic Clinic specialized in hair and tattoo removal.

    She was a huge fan of Flatwood’s superhero and started to feel a brutal love obsession for him, as he was the personification of her male ideal. After trying, unsucessfully, to approach him, she decided she could revert his supernatural powers, to turn him into a vulgar human and would be able to marry him.

    She knew she couldn’t capture him by herself so she started to lobotomize her customers (thanks to her laser technology) to create an army of obedient subjects, an army of tattoo-removed bikers and hairless gymnast girls.Unfortunately, after having successfully captured our superhero, she ended up killing him, laser-cutting him in half from the head down, due to a miscalculation.

    Her logo is inspired by the real laser advertisement one.She uses a altered hair and tattoo removal pistol as weapons.Being obssesed with the superhero she keeps tattooing and removing all sorts of dedicated tattoos. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/842d3069cfd0607bbaaf03717ea2b0d9f91c8039d2741627a3c53cb841f15234.jpg

    I wish I had time to draw this but I’m sure you guys could come up with something creative, I tried to not do the typical hero and villain story line.

    It was back in 1987 when little Jimmy (superhero) asked his mother for a dog for Christmas, he begged and begged but his mother insisted no.

    Upon waking that Christmas morning Jimmy ran under the tree and was delighted by the sheer amount of gifts Santa had brought him, as he opened gift after gift he started to feel more disappointed, you see no amount of gifts would make up for the fact that Jimmy didn’t get his dog, Jimmy spent the rest of the day fairly miserable and as he sat down to eat his Christmas dinner his mother left the room an returned with a puppy in her arms, Jimmy ran towards her and hugged her and the puppy and pleaded “please mum can the puppy eat lunch with me”.

    This was the start of a fantastic relationship between Jimmy and his dog Billy, they did everything together. They went for walks everyday, Jimmy told Billy every secret, they were inseparable.

    As time went on Jimmy became less interested in his dog and more interested in other things, like school, girls, crime fighting.

    You see Jimmy has always wanted to be a crime fighter, ever since he read his very first captain steel comic he had dreamed of one day being crowned Flatwood peaks only superhero.

    Jimmy spent more time now concentrating on becoming a superhero and didn’t care much for his dog, you see there is some truth behind the saying a dog is for life not just for Christmas. The sad thing is that Jimmy didn’t even realise how little he cared for his pet.

    Billy became miserable and spent most of his time wandering around the house alone until one day when Jimmy’s mother felt so sorry for the dog that she gave him away while Jimmy was at school.

    When Jimmy returned that same day and found Billy missing he was devastated, he begged his mother to get his dog back and promised never to ignore or leave his dog alone again, his mother gave in and went to the dogs new owners house to ask for Billy back, she knocked on he door and waited. Strangely the person who opened the door wasn’t the person she gave the dog too, infact the person she gave he dog too didn’t live there at all.

    With the dogs owners no where to be found she had to go home and tell Jimmy the awful truth, Jimmy was heart broken and he promised that he would one day become Flatwood peaks greatest superhero not only to save the residents of Flatwood peaks, but to use his superpowers to track down his lost dog……………………………………………………………

    The problem is that the people who bought Jimmy’s dog weren’t interested in keeping it as a pet, the people worked for scratzlabz, a laboratory focused on fusion and particle experiments and scratzlabz needed a new Guinea pig to play with.

    The owner of scratzlabz Dr Gunther van dross had just created a new machine capable of fusing 2 beings together and he needed 2 animals to test such a device. Unfortunately for Billy he was Gunther’s chosen animal, due to be fused with a stray cat Gunther had found in an old alleyway.

    As Gunther fired up his fusion laser he let out an evil laugh as Billy just cowered there on the floor, Gunther set his machine to phase two ( there’s no turning back now) Gunther picks up the cat and is about to place it into the machine when the cat freaks out and leaps from Gunther’s arms throwing Gunther off balance and he falls into the fusion machine.

    Gunther’s assistant Helga ran and pressed the emergency stop button on the machine and she quickly went to check that the doctor was OK, upon reaching the machine she saw a beast that was half man, half dog, like a werewolf in a lab coat. She pulled the doctors body from the machine and fastened him to a lab table (who knows what had just being created) it could be evil like a being from a horror movie, or it could just as well be a typical man who is great at fetching a ball, either way Helga didn’t want to find out………………………………

    When the doctor regained consciousness Helga began to run a few tests and asked him a few questions, he seemed fairly normal, just the typical laser obsessed DR Gunther except this Gunther had a hatred for the boy that left him alone all of them years.

    You see by fusing Gunther with Billy it happens that Gunther now has Billy’s thoughts as well and Billy never knew about Jimmy being upset when he was given away, all Billy knows is of the times he was left and how Jimmy left him so he could become a stupid superhero.

    This made Gunther rage, He hated Jimmy more than ever and he was hell bent on making sure he destroyed Jimmy just like Jimmy destroyed Billy.

    Gunther spent the next few years locked away in his cold drab lab creating a weapon so powerful that he could use it to cut Jimmy in 2, this twisted doctor thought that as he was 2 beings fused as 1 then he wanted the 1 Jimmy to be torn into 2.

    Thus DR Laser was born.

    Unfortunately I didn’t have time to create a sketch I hope the story gives you enough of a idea for the character, have fun guys and keep up the good work.

    Origin: Doctor Laser

    There was once was a young man who was forced into the medical practice. He absolutely resented the idea and wanted to do anything but become a doctor. However, his dreams of something else died and he fell into a small town working as the doctor. His growing hatred toward his career eventually led him into cruel and demented methods. His practice was soon shutdown, in which the doctor did not take kindly to. He sought revenge on the town that had ruined his life and thus turned to villainy.

    Using his knowledge, the doctor was able to create a robot minions and other super villain weapons. The pain and suffering of the town fed his malice and he rejoiced. Eventually, word spread across the land about the doctor and a brave young soul rose up to fight the evil man. This was the super hero. Strong and ambitious the super hero flew in and saved the town numerous times from the doctor. The two grew into arch-rivals and swore to end the other’s life. After losing over and over again, the doctor became even more so twisted.

    One night the doctor spent hours in his lab developing a compact laser. This laser however, had the ability to destroy anything in its path. After finalizing it, the doctor succumb to his own crazed mind believed that the laser would be stolen from him. He had to make it impossible for anyone to take his invention away from him and then he had an idea. He prepared himself for surgery, slowly and meticulously the doctor carved his eyeball out, and replaced it with the laser. To conceal his now cut up face the doctor belted on a “plague” medical mask. The young man was no more, instead he was born… Doctor Laser!

    The next day Doctor Laser planned the ultimate ending to his rivalry. He waited in the middle of town, and within seconds the super hero had arrived. Believing it was merely a joke, the super hero thoughtlessly rushed in and with one flare he was dead. Sliced in half and sent to the other side. Doctor Laser then released several other beams from his laser causing explosions after explosions. Laughing diabolically, the insane doctor claimed the town for himself.

    Soon with the super hero dead, Doctor Laser received all that he wanted when something went awry. His laser began spurting off. The doctor couldn’t control his laser eye any longer. Believing this was the end for him and locked himself in a laser proof room in the bottom of his lab to be forgotten.

    Puzzle Idea:
    After a long period of isolation the doctor begs that he will denounce his evil ways if he can return to a simple life without his laser eye. Doctor Laser had developed plans to deactivate his laser eye and remove it! However, the parts to build the mechanism are scattered throughout the town. To build the mech the pieces and parts must be collected, using the doctors sporadic laser beams one must open doors, passage ways etc… to search for these materials. The doctor may just need to call upon a dead hero for some help.

    Doctor Dimitri Von Laser, started out as a young scientist looking to change the world as a photochemist. That changed when Doctor Lasers’ pet possum and most beloved friend, Bernard, died in a freak accident caused by the town hero. Outraged by this, he removed his own hand and replaced it with a laser cannon that does more than cut the mustard. Currently, he dabbles in nuclear fusion.
