Avengers assemble! Earth's Mightiest Heroes are in need of costume overhauls!
Superhero of the Month is proud to present the Avengers as our theme for our April/May contest -- just in time for the team to make their big-screen debut!
Here's the challenge: Assume you are tasked with putting together a team of five (5) Avengers. You can choose any five you like, so long as they have been a member of the Avengers at some point in their career. (For an extensive list of Avengers members, click here.) As a team, they also need to be cohesive in their design in some way, but that interpretation is left to you. All standard guidelines apply.
Because of the amount of characters we're asking you to redesign, we're giving you an extended deadline of Sunday, May 20 by 6:00 PM MDT to complete this task. We will not be posting designs until May 1, but you are, of course, free to send in your redesigns at any point before the deadline.
Please send your team of Avengers in one (1) unified image. Failure to do so will result in your redesigns being rejected. (Consider it a lesson learned from the Birds of Prey contest. It took my time to stitch some submissions together, and while that was okay for two characters, it's not something I'm willing to do for five.) While individual shots of your team may be sent in as supplemental material, their inclusion on Superhero of the Month will be determined on a case-by-case basis. They may, however be shown on the appropriate auxiliary sites.
Two notes due to the extended deadline:
1) No extensions will be granted for this contest. With seven weeks to do your designs, there should be plenty of time, and we're anticipating we will need all the time we can get to judge these submissions.
2) During the month of April, we will be posting redesigns of any character(s) you wish to send to us. So if you have a design you've been sitting on that you're rather proud of, send it our way!
Good luck! If you have any questions, sound off in the comments below, or send us an email.
