Superhero fans, listen up. Create your own personalised superhero using an online superhero generator. Determine your superhero's individual traits with facial, body and clothing preferences. Give your superhero status with bat wings and talons, flowing capes and boots. Jot down attributes and symbols to represent your virtual superhero. Enter the information into the generator and you've created the next extraordinary superhuman. Even the most inexperienced computer user, with no prior artistic aptitude, may generate a superhero within minutes.

Skill level:


    Marvel Create Your Own Superhero

  1. 1

    Click on the "begin" prompt. Select one of three prototype superheroes displayed on the screen. Physiques include a muscular trim male, a bulky male and a curvaceous female.

  2. 2

    Input a suitable name for your superhero. Then follow the onscreen prompts to "prototype data" in order to build your superhero.

  3. 3

    Stick to a predetermined hero pack comprising familiar protagonists like Iron Man, Wolverine and Elektra for a quick creation. From the hero pack, applicable items appear on the left side of the prototype. Click on specifics such as upper and lower body, hair and accessories to quickly build your preset superhero.

  4. 4

    Create your own distinctive superhero by picking skin type preference found on the left side of the prototype. An optional overall skin colour can be generated by clicking on the colour and dragging the writing tool over the body. Click again to release the colour.

  5. 5

    Customise your superhero's facial features and hair. First select his or her eyes, and then work on the hero's other attributes. Optionally, provide your superhero with a suitable mask or headgear.

  6. 6

    Advance to the upper body by choosing inner shirt and outer shirt options. Next equip your superhero with modified arms, clawed hands, armour or cuffs. Follow this process in chronological order. Repeat the same progression for the lower body. At any stage in development, utilise the writing tool to add colour.

  7. 7

    Outfit your superhero with accessories to make him or her more formidable. On the left side of the screen, start with handheld weapons. Next choose embellishments such as a tail, belt, glasses and neckwear. Coordinate extras to establish a complete superhero look.

  8. 8

    Affix a logo to the upper body and create a dramatic background. Post the completed superhero or send it to a friend. Alternately, save, download or print it out.

    The Hero Factory

  1. 1

    Click on the red arrow at the bottom right of the screen that reads, "Make me a superhero." The superhero prototype will appear to the left side of the screen. Option menus will come into view on the right. Choose your superhero's gender --- male or female ---- and the chosen prototype will be displayed on the left.

  2. 2

    Choose the superhero's hair, determining facial shape from the pop-up screen. Next establish the superhero's eyes and eyebrows. Slide the browser arrow downward to add a nose, optional facial hair or eye patch.

  3. 3

    Click on upper body bar to outfit your superhero. Options include assorted shirts and accessories such as capes and wings. Next appoint gloved hands or arms and a superhero emblem. Press the lower body bar to select legs and belt options.

    Pick skin and hair colour by clicking on a multicoloured palette. In the same pop-up window, choose primary or secondary colours for the costume and symbol. Lastly, give your superhero abilities: bodily powers or weapons that range from a grocery bag to a trident.

  5. 5

    Complete your superhero by clicking "finished" on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The superhero will be displayed on the cover of a virtual comic. You may download or print your customised hero.

Tips and warnings

  • Before customising a superhero, write down ideas about him or her. Decide on facial features, body styles, symbols and other attributes for a better identifiable protagonist. Predetermine colours, as they will also play a prominent role when creating your character.
