For many years now I've been creating comic book characters/video game characters and I've always wanted to do a comic book at some point.

So I was trying to come up with a "super hero" like character and I was brainstorming one day and thought of this awesome character which I have named Adamas.

Adamas is an old Greek word for diamond and this guy is literally like a diamond man with super powers so the name just made sense.

But even though I was trying to create a super hero, to explain him properly he needed to be something more.......... kind of like a supernatural god.

I designed the character and the general story and I liked it so much that I'm going to seriously put some effort into seeing this get made.


Here was the first drawing I created for the character. I took some generic super hero template and photoshopped it to turn it into my character.





Then I took some action figures I bought at the store and made a custom action figure of my character. I used oil paints to paint over the original character. I used spackling paste to fill in the joints and empty areas and used glitter on the head to represent the diamond look.





Then I commissioned an artist to do like a professional image.





Here is the general story so far:

Quote
In this world there are gods. And just like all creatures a god needs a place to call home. To live, to exist, to thrive. Animals live in the wild. Humans live in homes. Gods occupy entire solar systems.

If a god should come across a solar system unoccupied then that god may claim it as their own. But not all solar systems are equal. Some are better than others. An order for a god to live to their fullest potential that god should seek out a suitable planet and start the seeds of life.

Life is an expression of a god. It is a power that all gods have. But being a god is not easy. There are threats to even gods themselves such as space monsters and other gods.

Space monsters are very strong and powerful creatures that can wreak havoc on planets and can potentially kill a god. Thus when a god acknowledges such a threat, the god can either retreat and find a new home or stand their ground and battle to the death to reclaim their homestead.

Sometimes a god will challenge another god for their territory.

People on a planet may want a god to intervene in their daily lives and to help solve their problems, but this is not what a god does. A god’s responsibilities are to maintain peace and order within the solar system.

When a god creates the seeds of life on a planet, the life should be robust enough to sustain itself from any natural phenomenon. It is only when super natural events and beings present themselves that a god should intervene.



And here is a Q and A for more information about the character:

Quote
Q: Why is his name Adamas?
A: Adamas is an ancient Greek word for Diamond.

Q: What is Adamas?
A: He is a god that lives in our solar system.

Q: Where does he live?
A: He lives deep inside of the planet Neptune.

Q: What does he do?
A: He protects the solar system from threats like space monsters, aliens and other gods.

Q: There are other gods like Adamas?
A: Yes, the Universe has many of them and they live inside planets and stars.

Q: What are his powers?
A: He has super strength, doesn't need to breathe air, extremely strong physical structure, the ability to fly, can generate electrical energy attacks and possibly more.

Q: Can a knife cut him?
A: No. Since he is made of diamond, no blade can harm him unless it is a diamond blade. Only a diamond can cut a diamond.

Q: Does he have a weakness?
A: Yes, extreme heat and fire.

Q: Can he be crushed or broken?
A: Yes, under extreme circumstances he can be broken, but he can heal himself by going back to his home planet.

Q: How does he heal himself?
A: On his home planet there are diamonds deep within the atmosphere which can rejuvenate his injuries.

Q: Does he fight crime, would he stop a bank robber?
A: These circumstances are of little importance to him. He only battles serious enemies which cannot be handled by humans.

Q: Does he speak?
A: Yes, but he is a man of little words.

Q: How old is Adamas?
A: He is billions of years old.

Q: Why does he look human?
A: It may be that he came to this solar system billions of years ago and implanted life on planet Earth, which is why humans look like him.




Here is picture of what a space monster looks like. They start out as being small like human sized, but they can grow to be so large that they can consume entire planets for food. So they are like pests that have to be eliminated when they are small because once they get too big then they are basically unbeatable.

I love the character and idea and I hope you do to! Let me know what you think.
I like the design. For some reason, it's giving me a Fantastic Four vibe. The backstory is well thought out as well, making it seem it was not a rush job. I'll be keeping along to see what comes out of this. Nice job! :)

Dude this is nice. Almost reminds me of the Engineers from Prometheus. The story is pretty interesting so far and gives a good setting. Original and has potential should you keep going! Best of luck on these endeavors should you continue! Don't ever stop writing or drawing bc it can quickly leave. That happened to me. I had a story and characters and drew comics a lot but hit a writers block and only kept doing character designs but eventually stopped and ever since I moved to music, drawing is damn near impossible bc said motivation is gone. I still hit up ideas every now and then and discuss them with my brother to try organize ideas but drawing is long gone for me. Continue doing what you love and don't stop regardless of the attention given!

I like the backstory of this guy. Not a huge comic book / superhero fan, but this one's got me asking. Adamas VS Goku Death Battle when? :P
But would you rather fight a duck-sized Adamas or an Adamas-sized duck?

you're mom bannd
I just want to say, THANK YOU for all the positive support and comments.

I've never really been a big comic book reader myself. I've never been that person who reads comics and is into comics.

But, I'm really big in creating new and original characters and after you create a character you usually want to make up a story for the character and then you usually pick your story telling medium to tell this story in and comics seems to be a go to for creators.

Look at the Ninja Turtles, they started out as a comic, but then branched out as a cartoon, action figures, video games and a live action film.

I remember seeing the Prometheus movie and kind of understanding the story and yeah, I kind of saw the same connection there too, although unintentional.

Adamas VS Goku Death Battle when?


Anytime you want it to happen! Actually its all about how popular the character is. There is this character One Punch Man who just started out as a poorly drawn webcomic but then shot up to super stardom fame when it got popular. Also the problem I have with Goku is that he just keeps getting stronger and stronger. There is no limit to his powers.

Both.
Reminds me of the VIsion
This is actually pretty awesome. I love everything, from the design to the backstory and the custom action figure is also super nice. Good luck with your futyre endeavours and finding supporters for them!

Such a good anime with a kick ass op and ost. Season 2 is divided by the fanbase but I personally liked it for its character developments. Depending on where you set the bar for your character and what he will be going through we can get a grasp to his strength and where he stands. Seeing as he was born a god you can start him off as strong as you want. It took Goku roughly 3 decades of story telling to get to where he is bc he wasn't a god or anything like that. I think a battle between your character and Goku would be definitely great just for funsies and much better imo than say vs Superman (just bc there's waaayyy too many different author interpretations and Goku is a linear character if you just count canon). What powers does your character have if you've though of any so far? Can he get stronger? Weaker? Or is he just set and where at if so?

Since this is fiction you can really do whatever you want or whatever the plot requires if your lazy lol.

But seriously, the reason he is a god is because there is no other explanation I could give him. He can't be a human because he is made of pure diamond and is not human. Even a character made of diamond is still not possible because you need like a brain and such to think so the character is truthfully not possible in our universe. This is why I'm calling him supernatural because it really cannot be explained using regular logic.

He is pretty darn strong. Strong enough that no human could ever win in a one on one tug-of-war match. I would say that a good tug-of-war match would be with Godzilla (the kind of monsters). I like the idea of him going into battle and loosing to a very strong opponent only to walk away and figure out a different strategy and then come back ever stronger.

Like you can lose in a match and still not get any stronger but figure out what went wrong and then come back with a different battle plan and win.

I also like the idea of him discovering new powers of his. Like for example, he has the ability to create energy blasts from his hands, but he didn't know that at first, he had to discover that he could do this.

So over time he learns more about himself and more about his own powers. As he learns new powers he thus becomes "more powerful".

Also eventually he will die of old age. Apparently diamonds degrade to graphite after so many billions of years so when he gets to be really old he will turn into pencil lead. LOL. But he can always be rejuvenated with actual diamonds and come back to life. So it makes for good story telling when you can kill a character and bring him back and such.
