I have, I think, about 4 or 5 comic book ideas, but the first and main one I have, I have had it in my head since I was fourteen and it has grown with me and has been a part of me ever since. Every day, it and my other ideas bounce around in my head, and every day, I learn more about who my characters are, and every day, I marvel at how amazing they are.
If I could make this wish and have the five main characters in my idea stand before me... I would spend days sitting and talking with them all. (And maybe learn a few fighting skills from them)
It's funny isn't it, being suprised by characters you thought up? Like how certain aspects of your main character somehow fall magically inline with the villian showing this great character contrast between them. (like over-the-top pride vs. genuine humility)
Ah, that sort of thing is so cool! The other day I was thinking about how interesting it is when characters have contrasting personality elements within themselves, like a character of mine who is glibly unaware of other peoples' discomfort with his habits and appearance, but is otherwise very observant of their feelings.
my main character has this inner conflict of being a quiet, purpose driven hero but deep down, has this dark desire to destroy everything. (he blames the world for his facial scars) And at the same time he also has this deep admiration for my secondary character; he sees her "purity" as something he feels can be far stronger then him and something he could never again become.
sort of. while the hero sees himself as less than human, the villian sees himself as a god. That's the contrast, but also, the similarity between them is that the villian is carrying out the hero's dark desire is. (destroying and conquering) Basically, the villian is what the hero could be if he surrendered to his dark thoughts.
This button.... This is my life my characters mean so much to me and if they existed, if I could see them, just once, even there personalities that humanity no longer carries, someone that's actually genuinely kind.
Oh yea, well, if mine were real, they'd- uh, uhhhh- kill everyone! MUAHAHA- SO EDGY- ... ok, fine, mine would probably just be the useless ones in the corner... maybe they can do something in reality, probably not though. I always imagine my world to be too babyish, and if they were real they wouldn't know what the hell too do.
Ahhh, this would be nice. Well, I mean...my main characters, anyway. Hahaha. There're some characters from my stories that I wouldn't want to be a reality, but that goes without saying in some cases (who would wish for a nasty villain to be a reality?). I'd love it if my main protagonists were real, though. A few of them have their issues, and one of them can be kind of standoffish, but they're my babies and they're all good people overall that would make reality so much more awesome if they all lived under the same roof.
I don't get all these comments about people's characters all being these crazy psychos that would hate them or wreck the world. Like, do people not create characters with likable personalities anymore?
Yeah, same boat here. I think one or two of my characters, I could actually be real, close friends with. Others I probably wouldn't find very interesting IRL just due to personality and stuff. I'd definitely love to live in some kind of shared house with everyone though For a while at least, I think a few characters would start to get on my nerves, not because they're outlandishly weird or evil, they would just be annoying to me, ha ha.
It seems like some people can't get into characterization besides "Psycho evil hottie," and it's like "Try something new plz" :c
Same here. I feel like a few of my characters are big enough sweeties that I'd easily be able to be good friends with them, but a few of the others are less social, so getting along with them would be more difficult. But at least they wouldn't hate me or try to kill me.
Well, I have an immortal swordsman, a cuddly solar giant, a cyborg mercenary, a heavily abused human experiment with telekinetic powers, a warlock who's been disfigured by a sabotaged spell, his kind of joe-shmoe apprentice, and a couple of cosmic entities that are constantly battling and pining for each other. Those are the main characters from several of my stories in their respective nutshells, hahaha.
I think out of all of them, the only ones who would pose an actual, imminent threat if they suddenly became real are the last two. Not because they're outright malicious, they're just completely oblivious to anything going on but themselves, so they tend to trash everything without actually meaning to.
