Well hate to win by default but here it is.

Okay???

 

That looks like a skeleton torrero. Just the sword appears a bit odd, anybody know what shape that is?

Normal bullfighting sword is long and straight to pierce right into the bulls heart. I have one or two possible ideas, if I just knew what style that sword is.

"el torrero ósea" (the bony torrero) used to be you average torrero. Until he died and then returned from death as a walking skeleton.

He can thank his sudden return from the land of the death to the Graveblade, an ancient magical weapon that was once looted his ancestor during one of the crusades.

 

He seems not especially concernd about his new state of being, living his live as he used to be:

He still smokes cigars, among other stuff.

He even still works as torrero, but in a new less bloody way:

His body is actually not very resistant to damage, but he will quickly reform even when a bull ran through and over him.

In turn his blade allows him to stun living beings without causing serious harm.

 

This allows him to fight bulls without a drop of blood being spilled, much to the delight of people advertising against the blodyness of bullfighting.

 

He is not interested in being a superhero or villan. He does help when troubl get's in his way or the world/country are in danger. But otherwise he considers himself "just a normal joe, despite my bony complexion".

 

 

Edit: this concept was heavily inspired of Pablo Montaine from the webcomic Endstone:

Sugar Skull

 

Flamboyant vigilante working across the southwest and Mexico. The sugar skull takes his name from the traditional confectionary for dio Los Muertos the day of the dead. Sugar skull is chaotic hyperactive described as being like a grade schooler on a sugar high .

 

His powers are illusion based able to generate costumes and props at will and with psychokinesis to add punch to his phantom weaponry. No one knows what he really looks like and the fact he can appear to be anyone using his powers he seems to come out of nowhere dish out chaotic cartoonish violence and vanish again.

Looks like a cutlass or sabre.

The most mysterious of the superhero Minotaur's foes is Muerto, who counters Minotaur's strength with his own power to turn intangible.  He tends to attack unexpectedly while ranting about the way Minotaur's death is "overdue".  He does a fairly good job of pretending to be a supernatural personification of death.  Actually he's just a guy in a skull mask that contains mental controls over his intangibility circuitry, a deranged scientist seeking to avenge someone who died in the accident that transformed Minotaur.

Dr. Helena St. Thomas was a volcanologist working in Italy when she got a little too close to a steaming-hot caldera, slipped, and fell in.  Her horrified colleagues tried to save her, but were unable to even retrieve her body.  Their theory was that her body must have gotten pulled under a rocky outcropping, but the truth was that Dr. St. Thomas was literally boiled alive and her life energy absorbed into the volcano. 

 

She emerged months later, but she was unrecognizable.  Calling herself Pyroclast, she takes the form of a pyroclastic flow - a fast-moving cloud of hot gas and rock that can reach temperatures up to 1,000 degrees C.  She can also take a more diffuse, larger form (pictured) that, while not nearly as hot as her more compact form, is still plenty dangerous.  The agony of her ordeal has driven her insane, and she seems intent on causing widespread death and destruction wherever she can.

What is truly scary about a Pyroclastic Flow is it's speed. You can outwalk lava, but a Pyroclastic wave moves up to 200 mph:

Thought about using that name for a earth/fire based speedster way back.

Okay, let's see what people come up with for this instead.  (Or is she some established character too?)

The Phantom Geisha

Despite what her name would imply she is neither a ghost, nor comes from Japanese (as she points out regulary, she still has feet*). She is an american of Japani-German origin.

Her unique dance style - invented partially after traditional dances - makes here very hard to hit (high DCV) and to top it off she can enter a intagible smoke form.

She can also use her smoke to attack, quenching light powers and taking out foes alike.

 

*In japanese folklore ghosts have no feet.

Not really.  It's supposed to be a challenge, isn't it?

 

Some things are more challenging than others. I find it more difficult to come up with ideas for photographic images than drawings or the like. Not sure why. Anyway, it wasn't a complaint just wondering if anyone experienced that.
