So I was looking through my 4th grade math notebook (for whatever reason) and stumbled across my own superheroes. I forgot about them! Here are some of them. I drew them and wrote some mini biographies. I’m slightly embarrassed since I have REAL artists following me…don’t judge >.<
Jack O’ Jerk: This dude was the main protagonist in my little 4th grade comics. I actually remember getting yelled at by a teacher for using the word “jerk” in my stories.
There once was a righteous Police Detective, Jack, who got mixed up with the Mafia. Uhh so they killed him and then dumped his body in a pumpkin patch near the outskirts of town, Pumpkin Town I believe (I was a super clever 9 year old). Unbeknownst to them, the pumpkin patch was enchanted by black magic and served as a tomb for the ancient demon known as Davill. Within 2 days, the detective’s body was consumed by the ground and then reanimated, becoming Jack O’ Jerk. His first mission: Destroy the Mafia.
Jack O’ Jerk has the power to talk to and control pumpkins…He makes use of this power by creating a pumpkin minion named Punkin and by creating pumpkin bombs. He also has enhanced strength and razor sharp claws.
Davill: The main antagonist in the Jack O’ Jerk stories. This ancient demon was resting since the beginning of recorded history. The Mafia made the mistake of disturbing his tomb, causing him to finally wake up. His first mission was to destroy the Mafia as well, only he got to them before Jack. When Jack got to the Mafia’s base of operations, he was disgusted to see all of the mutilated bodies that laced the ground. Who would do such a thing; I was going to kill them too…but not like this, thought Jack.
Jack eventually used his detective skills to find Davill. The demon offered him a place in his army; he wanted to take over the world. Jack rejected the offer and attacks and eventually gets defeated by Davill, thus starting their endless feud.
Davill has a lot of demon-based powers such as fire breath, flight, superstrength, the power to resurrect, immortality, etc.
Prince: For whatever reason, the 9 year old me must have thought that rich people dressed like Aladdin…
Prince is Jack O’ Jerk’s rich, snobby douchebag brother. Since the Mafia targets people’s families, Jack’s brother was one of the first to get killed. Feeling as if Prince’s murder was his fault, Jack took Prince’s body and dumped it into the enchanted pumpkin patch in his attempt to resurrect his own brother. Uhm, it worked.
As a manifestation of his gratitude, Prince agreed to help Jack for a little while. Unfortunately, this partnership ended when Davill successfully manipulated Prince into becoming his right-hand man, telling him that he’ll have all the money and power in the world.
Jack eventually defeats Davill and talks some sense into Prince. Prince detaches himself from Davill and eventually becomes an anti-hero, working by himself.
Prince uses sharp weapons that he purchases with his monies. He has the same powers as Jack but doesn’t even bother using them…he even cuts his razor sharp nails.
Punkin and Crow: Punkin is Jack O’ Jerk’s first pumpkin creation. Jack only sees him as a minion, even after Punkin’s attempts to make him think of him as a friend.
Punkin has super strength and very little intelligence. He is forced to do whatever Jack tells him to, it’s part of their minion-master relationship. Punkin was created solely for comic relief.
Crow is just a crow. He acts as a pet as well as Jack’s scout and lookout.
Commander Toilet: I don’t know sh#t about this dude other than the fact that he’s a religious freak and one of Jack’s closest superhero buddies.
Commander Toilet was created by a good friend of mine (back then at least) named T.J. He appears in about 2/3rds of my Jack O’ Jerk stories.
You’re welcome for that. O.o
