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:
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:
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.
