WIP Focus: Wonderman by rozeros

Due to deanjo2000 winning the Favorite Fiction blog sprite contest at IMT, he was given the chance to select the subject of a WIP Focus article. He decided to go with Wonderman by rozeros.

1) So how did you decide upon bringing Wonderman to Mugen?

Wonderman is Marvel's Superman. He's one of the most powerful heroes in that universe. Sometime ago I saw an edit of him by Deanjo2000 and I was shocked - it was simple and really good looking. I decided to make him, because the project that I'm working on with some of the Scruffy Dragon members (MSH2), needs to have the most powerful and recognizable marvel icons.

2) What influence did Zvitor and JasonTodd's version make upon that decision?

Their version is completely different from mine, from what i saw. I haven't played it much. To be honest I often don't play Mugen, I only do characters. It's a hobby for me. I don't want to compete with them in any way.

3) Please share your thoughts about his general comic back history and about the character in general.

Simon Williams - known as Wonderman, grew up in a rich family, he was an A-student. He owes his powers to Baron Zemo, who gave Simon ionic rays. After that his strength was at 100 ton range - comparable to Thor, Iron Man or Anti-Venom. He's a powerhouse full of ionic energy.

4) So tell the readers what bases you are using for the character and for the various moves themselves.

The main base is Urien/Gill. I used also Cable, Captain America, Necro, Sagat. In the future I plan to use more bases to make him a more original character.

5) I know its early on, but may I ask how the progress going on Wonderman?

Some of the the basics are already sprited and coded, but there's still more stuff to do. I want this character to be my best.

6) What has stood out the most during the creation process in a positive manner to this point? What has been giving you the most trouble?

The best thing is that I have a scheme how I sprite him. I do three steps. Reducing colors, resizing the base, and then adding the details. The hardest thing I think, is making original moves. When I frankesprited a hypermove from Sagat and Captain America, I had to add one extra color, change the structure of the muscles to match Urien's. It takes some time, but I think it's worth it.

7) Did I see something somewhere about 2 modes? Please explain all of that further.

Yes, he will have 2 modes - Normal and Ionic. Ionic mode will be exclusive only to MSH2.

8) What moves might we see that are fairly similar to Zvitor and JasonTodd's version, but with your different take on how the work?

I also will have ionic blasts, and eye beams, but with different positions and effects. As I said earlier - I don't want to compete with them.

9) Beyond what you just said, can you tell us any more about other plans for specials and hypers?

I would like to do a hyper including all west coast avengers. Ionic blasts are inevitable for him. I want to do at least four hypers in each mode.

10) I know it did not work out completely as you envisioned, but tell us about the Wonder Gold competition and what were your motivations to do such in the first place?

I wanted to see how people imagine Wonder Gold, it's always good to achieve help from others. (Editor's note: Trexrell and I won this contest, but it was probably due more to the fact we were the only entrants.)

11) Will she have any intros or winposes with any other comic characters, and if so can you tell us about some of your ideas along those lines please?

He should have custom intros with some chars, I think of Ms. Marvel, Hulk, Ultron. It depends if I get permission from their creators.

12) So what are your general thoughts on beta releases? Can you give a possible timetable on a beta to release and/or a goal for the full release?

I don't have a date when I plan to release him. I can only promise that when I decide to do it, the character will be fun to play with. When I won't have the certainty that I did all I could - I won't release him.

Thanks for your time, rozeros. To find out more about the character in general, follow these links:

Grudge Match: Hercules vs Wonder Woman

Hercules exists in both the DC and Marvel universes. And Wonder Woman is definitely closely related to the DC Version. Remember that Hercules is a huge part of the Amazon myth from Greek mythology. In the Marvel version I don't think those events happened but I don't think Wonder Woman would care. I think She would hand Hercules his head because she is already angry with Hercules and hates him.  Not without reason. I decided to stage a fight in MUGEN; the video is below.

Grudge Match: Goku vs Deadpool

I wondered what would happen is Goku and Deadpool had a toss up. I think Goku would wipe Deadpool out. I decided to see how my favorite versions of Deadpool and Goku would fare pitted against one another. Check out the video below.

Grudge Match: Superman vs Ms Marvel

If Ms Marvel and Superman fought I think she would have to get in some good shots to make him take her seriously. Fortunately, I don't think that will be a problem. Ms Marvel is powerful enough that she would easily provoke Superman to go all out. - that is of course if he wants to win. Ultimately, I think Superman would eventually beat her.

Mugen: Namor

Team SGM and ZVitor have released Namor for MUGEN. It is awesome. I have found 2 previous versions of the character and this version is the best! It looks great and is so much fun to play with. I'm going to need to spend some more time practicing with it but I look forward to seeing how much butt can be kicked with it!

Mugen: Batman Beyond

Now here is an exciting character just released by Alexiq and Spiderbat: Batman Beyond.  I've been waiting for a good version of Batman Beyond for MUGEN and it is finally here. Batman Beyond was a television series that imagined a future where Bruce Wayne had grown to old to be Batman and young man takes over. It was a great series and it is fun to finally to be able to use him in MUGEN. Download him.

Trexrell and Yin have released Vixen for MUGEN! She has the ability to mimic the powers of some of the jungles most powerful lifeforms. I'm all for adding as many black superhero characters to MUGEN as possible. Truth is I had never heard of Vixen before her appearance on Justice League Unlimited but I think the idea of supermodel/superhero is always fun to watch. Download her and try her out in your MUGEN. Here is a video below showing me trying it out!

Grudge Match: Superman vs Goku

Okay, I admit it. This is a geek question but I'll ask it anyway: Goku vs Superman - who wins? Well, one thing for sure is that if such a battle ever really happened I hope that it's in an unpopulated area because I'm sure there would be nothing left standing afterward. If Goku was limited to not going through his many Super Sayan transformations, I think Superman would win easily. However If Goku can go Super Sayan 1 - 4 then Superman will have some problems. I'm afraid I'll have to give it to Goku! There was a vote taken at CBUB and it's a well-written article. I found a great video on YouTube where such a battle is animated.

I also staged a battle in Mugen

CVG United's Christmas Event, Day 4


Because Day 4 was our self proclaimed prelude day for Scruffy Productions 12 Days of Christmas event with Vixen and Jor El's awesome stages being set aside for scheduling to celebrate such due to just how highly we think of the items reserved for our host section to recognize that. They were flanked by XFields revealing the ProjectX trailer and BlizzardTora's surprise screenpack release. Thanks to you all. And do not forget, we appreciate thx138 and Zvitor's contributing Batgirl and ALEXZIQ's awesome update to Joker the day before. Discuss Day 4 here!
You may ask why I am putting this under Day 4. Well, it was because that was the original intent. But as the saying goes, better late than never and I know that no matter what day you downloaded Vixen, you'll be glad you did. To download, either click the image above or take her release discussion link: Vixen released by Trexrell and Yin
