    An Olympic themed hero from the "Big 2"? This felt very Silver Agey to me...

    Lot of good work so far. I really like the background treatment DBed, and I just caught the bronze, silver and gold. Smart.

    Mine is a little trite or overused and even a bit too hipsterish, but it's my own little editorial. I miss the no sponsor, no pro-athlete days. But then I'm old enough to remember when Bruce Jenner was the coolest guy in the world and not a Kardashian punch line.

    @FredG--I very much like the sentiment expressed; that's a great image.

    Did you see Ryan Seacrest interviewing Michael Phelps' sisters? I expected him to whip out a TV contract on the spot!

    I like the Olympic flame robot. Er, it is a robot? Or is it a statute like the Colossus?

    Sorry about these multiple posts; I seem to be striking trouble with the upload for my entry.

    Olympia 3

    Ah, got it!

    I envisioned Olympic Flame in the way the ancient Greeks would have - a deity who is guardian of the Olympic flame and spirit.

    Hey folks! Been a while since I took part in one of these. Here's my idea for the character.

    @Daddy Si: What does FAKTWANK mean? A friend of mine was asking about it.

    It's the sound of a discus striking and splitting open the skull of a philosopher, causing his knowledge to spill out.

    It's an old Don Martin sound effect from MAD Magazine, young one...
