They say that behind every great man is a great woman, but in front of every great villain is a great henchman!  From right-hand men and seductive advisers to elite muscle and top assassins, the hench force of the world is what keeps the villains fighting toe-to-toe with those valiant heroes.  A cut above the rank-and-file faceless mooks, these are the minibosses for supercriminals, the lieutenants, the specialists, and the arm candy.  Characters such as Thanos' Black Order, Harley Quinn in her original appearance, or even the James Bond thugs like Jaws and Oddjob.  And as luck would have it, a good number of my villains are understaffed!

Your job will be to design a unique henchman or henchwoman for one of my existing villains.

The Rules:

  • Henchmen may be male, female, machine, or anything else, really.
  • Henchmen should compliment their boss' theme and/or abilities.
  • Henchmen may have powers, but nothing more powerful than their boss.  There's a reason they aren't independent villains of their own.
  • Keep things lighthearted overall.  Nothing too grim or gruesome.
  • Henchmen must be created since the start of the contest, and created by you.  There is a time and a place for recycling, but this isn't it.
  • Art or other visual aids are encouraged, but if you are unable to do so, a full detailed description of the henchmen's appearance must be included.
  • Deadline for entries is July 31st before 11:59 PM EST!
The following villains are eligible for a new henchman:

Current Entries:


Victoria Gale bioVictoria Gale:  Henchwoman to Apex
Age: 22
Hair: Long and Black
Eyes:  Bluish Gray
Height:  6'2
Body Type:  Athletic and Muscly
Skills:  A master tracker and huntress.  Very stealthy and skilled in hand to hand combat and tactics
Powers:  Immortality, water breathing, ability to swim very fast and walk and run on top of water
Magic armbands:  These gold bands around the biceps give Victoria enhanced speed, strength and stamina as long as she wears them.  If she chooses she can activate them to boost herself up to superhuman levels.  This only lasts for five minutes and afterwards Victoria is very exhausted for the rest of the day.
Ocean's Roar:  This beautiful spear is inlaid with pearls and white jade and tipped with a magical iron blade.  When Vicky wields it she can fire blasts of high pressure water at enemies, create a swirling water shield by spinning the spear quickly, or even create whips of water that she can use to a

Dullahan BioHenchman to Faerie Queene
Real Name: Stanley Nolan
Sex: Male
Age: 26
Occupations: Film Director, prop and makeup designer (former), Henchman
Physical Appearance (Outside of Suit): Stanley is a young man with short blonde hair. He often goes a few days without shaving, and usually has some stubble going. He stands at about six feet tall, and has an average build. His eyes are green.
Powers: Stanley himself is an average man, but he can pilot a mighty mechanized suit that resembles the Dullahan of Irish myth. The suit possesses strength well beyond that of any normal human, and is surprisingly agile. It can equip a large whip resembling a human spine (it's actually a very convincing prop), greatly extending the suit's combat capabilities. The suit itself appears to be a knight, standing at a towering ten feet, with black armor and skull motifs, but distinctly lacks a head. Instead, the suit carries its "head", a skull that can be thrown, which causes it to detonate. This is a powerful we

Here's my submissions!  C 'Bustion and Sourpatch, two rowdy gals with a power complex!
C' Bustion because Jeopardy needs someone to be able to keep up with him and his explosive stunts!
Sourpatch because she can make up for Caramel queen's speed weakness with a paralyzing glare from afar!  Plus they both like to use their opponent's helpless bodies.

I too felt more than one entry would suffice, mostly because I couldn't decide one henchman, I went for three villains :)
However, my favorite has to be the Toxic bubble.. I find her truly standing out! 


For the evil and brilliant Dr.Malady
Toxic bubble by Bondage-Addicted
" Anything for my toxic love! "
Effected by chemicals had done more good than wrong, now able to transform her own DNA and emit powerful gas, the Toxic bubble seeks ways to further the immoral abilities through DNA transformation, and the benefits that may blossom.. or rot down to the core with it.



And to the beautiful Faerie Queen,

The enchanting potion master by Bondage-Addicted
" I would kneel before a fair maiden, one who would desire beauty as I do! "

A mystic woman who felt mocked too much for love for medieval. Brewing her own potions, she now seeks ways to open the eyes of the majority. 



For Professor Medusa I would enter!

Lady X by Bondage-Addicted
" When Professor Medusa asks for something, you and I know the only response is to give in! "

Lady X, a bratty young woman who found other ways of transporting herself after her legs were too damaged.

Are there rules for multiple entries? Probably only one prize per person, but I've got a few interesting characters in my brain I could cook up.
