The votes have been tallied. Much deliberation was had. Many cookies were used in bribery. But our panel of five underage judges from three nations have made their decisions. But first, some of the choice comments:
"They're all my favorites!"
"I don't like any of them!"
"Orange and green is cool, like Aquaman!"
"He can turn invisible, like Martian 'hunter!"
"Uno, dos, y tres!"
Remember First place gets the Brave and the Bold Batmobile/jet as well as the DVD. Second and Third place each get the DVD. All that participated get our thanks!

1st Place: Fuego del Oro by Coffee Joe!
Fuego Del Oro (The Golden Flame)
Real Name: Jacinto Bochica
Hometown/Base of Operations: Tehuantepec, Mexico/Global
Weight: 180 lbs.
Eye Color/Hair Color: Brown/Black
Powers: Flight, Super-Strength, Super-Stamina, Able to master a new language in minutes
Origin: For young Jacinto Bochica, there was no greater joy in life than wrestling. The costumes were garishly wonderful, the personalities were larger-than-life and, most of all, wrestling provided an escape from the terrors of real life.
Born to migrant workers, Jacinto knew very little but poverty growing up. After the sudden death of his father, he was left alone in this world with only his mother to care for him and provide for him. Soon, the yearly trip to America became too much for just the two of them, and Jacinto's mother was forced into a life of panhandling and, eventually, petty theft.
Before long she crossed path with the local, corrupt policia, and Jacinto never saw his mother again.
And still, there was wrestling. It became Jacinto's passion, and his dream was to one day become a successful enough wrestler so that he would never have to live in poverty again. Each night, he would practice his craft with whoever or whatever would stand still long enough for him.
When Jacinto finally came of age, he decided to try and enter that magical world, but knew that he first needed a costume. He scoured the markets, looking for all the right elements, until he finally happened upon an old woman selling the finest fabrics Jacinto had ever seen. His eyes kept getting drawn to one in particular -- a golden cloth, strong yet soft, perfect for his needs. THe old woman claimed that the fabric had come from an old city, high in the mountains of Colombia, from whose berth few travelers had returned. Jacinto tried to purchase the fabric but the old woman insisted he simply take it; it was meant for him.
That night, Jacinto cut and sewed and shaped the fabric into the form of a mask, the key ingredient for his wrestling costume. When he finally finished, exhausted, Jacinto tried the mask on and was immediately overwhelmed. Power, such as he had never imagined, coursed through his body. His muscles bulged, his heart raced, he began to float, and -- strangest of all -- a voice began speaking to him. It identified itself as Chiminigagua, one of the creators of the universe and the protector of El Dorado, the lost city of gold. Jacinto would be his champion on earth, and whenever he dons his golden mask he becomes Fuego Del Oro (The Golden Flame), Warrior Spirit of El Dorado!

Two Spirits by Mister Blisterfists!
Thomas "Two Spirits" Tallshadow
Born Hico, Texas
Two Spirits Tallshadow was always destined to be a great leader. His grandfather was the Tribal Medicine Man, and upon his passing, he bestowed a great secret. Not only would Tallshadow lead the people of the Apache, as their chief, he would be able to stand taller than any man, and face an army single handedly. When he entered the Spirit world, his spirit would trade places with that of a Kodiak bear, gaining all of its ferocity and size. He uses this power to protect his people, his land, and his way of life, but also to help those less fortunate.
Koken the Invisible by Mirthquake!
Toshio Eto, like every other schoolboy in Japan, dreamed of being a member of the super-team Big Science Action. He especially wanted to be the sidekick to Rising Sun. He excelled in metahuman science in his studies, and even had chosen a bushido in which to learn the art of the Samurai.
But Eto-san was terribly shy. He knew he'd never be able to withstand the glow of the pubic spotlight, even in the shadow of Rising Sun. His mother, Toshio Toshiko, was a famed Kabuki actress and tried to get him involved in the craft to overcome his shyness.
But the only stage position Eto-san succeeded in was that of the Koken, the black-robed stage assistant of Kabuki, who invisibly assists the actor with properties and costume on stage.
Eto-san was so adept at the art of Koken, that he came up with ways to incorporate his technological science studies into his stage career. He studied Professors Smith and Ivo in their cybernetic and wind control experiments, and was able to adapt those studies to the point that he could even "conjure" three "wind spirits", to assist in his on-stage tasks.
He studied light refraction and reflection, and designed a costume from alien tech that would allow him to move unseen among the public as well as on stage.
He actually was in the middle of clinical trials on the suit when word came that Big Science Team was fighting a villain unsuccessfully in the area. Eto-san came to the rescue, unbeknownst to all, by invisibly setting up "traps" for the villain and assisting the heroes with making sure they had effective weapons against him. But no one knew but Eto-san.
Eto-san studied at the Hattori bushido, becoming a high level samurai by practicing under cloak of darkness. And when he was ready, he took the name Koken The Invisible, and helped all levels of Japanese society, anonymous and unseen.
It wasn't until being spotted and encouraged by The Batman, who himself is known to keep to the shadows, that the Koken even let anyone know of his existence.
And to this day, though assisted by him regularly, Rising Sun still does not know the Koken is there. Which is, as Eto-san say, as it should be.
