[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"][color=#808080;] Early on in the invasion of the so-called Brain Slugs near Makuhero City and on surrounding planets, many HF scientists decided to experiment with the Slugs and their effects on their hosts. In a process similar to the creation of a vaccine using weakened bacteria, a wounded Brain Slug was forcibly connected to the back of a Rookie Hero by the name of Cade Marler.[/color][/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"][color=#808080;]   The ethics of the experiment were just as questionable as the results. As the Brain Slug affixed itself to Marler's spine, the young hero's left side- the right side being his dominant side, a feature integrated into recent Hero personality matrices- gradually became sickly green, twisted, mutated... in a similar fashion, rage, destruction, and distrust filled his mind, and he was unable to control it. The physical mutation of the Brain Slug continued to take root, and so did the mental aspect.[/color][/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"][color=#808080;]   Over time, however, Cade was able to regain his control over the mental and physical infections. It became a valuable asset. With enough concentration, The young hero was able to keep the Slug's effect in check most of the time, and bring forth its anger when he needed it most, specifically in battle. The mutated left arm's spiny protrusions became quite useful weapons against all manners of enemies. Marler still has to be careful, though, because if he overexerts himself the parasitic Brain Slug will take control.[/color][/font]Posted Image

This is a bit of an older build, from five months or so back, when Eurobricks had their Hero Factory Month contests. (Until this point I'd never posted Marler on BZP, only on flickr and EB, so yes, this is allowed as an entry.)

I figured it'd be better to participate and post an entry instead of sitting around with no inspiration building nothing, and Cade Marler just happened to fit the category and requirements. :)

As you can tell, a bit of a different style from most of my MOCs. Despite the comparative simplicity, though, I'm fond of it.

I tried to use a name here that'd be more fitting of an actual person than a fictional hero. (I guess I succeeded, because apparently, someone- I think it was Invi- has a relative with almost this exact name.)

Feedback is appreciated, as are votes. ;)

Ah....I knew I saw this before.  The tentacle arm is really well done.

[color=#006400;]I love it all. The look, the colors, the build, everything. I think the tentacle really stands out in a good way. Makes the guy unique.[/color]

That brain slug is accurately called adorable. :)

I think the only thing that would improve this creation would be to somehow get the slug into the Cade's actual head, although that would sacrifice the design significantly so it is understandable why you did it this way. Still good.

Yeah, putting the brain slug on his head would just seem a bit weird to me. Anyway, a Hero's "brain" is their Hero Core as far as I know, so it would make sense for the creature to attach to his torso.

 I love the custom brain it looks like a reject of the brain slugs and an early creation of that villain that we saw at the begging of brain attack.

It was more my intention to make a custom version of the brain slug rather than simulate a reject or something, but I suppose that could be one way to look at it. Thanks! :)

Not sure if that's accurate but if it was it would make sense.

 

Anyways I love the design and the Brain Slug. I'm voting  :)

 

Edit: Did preliminary voting end already? Gosh darnit.

Thanks!

No, voting hasn't even started. (Tufi said it'd begin a few days ago, but as far as I can see, the polls haven't opened...)

Thanks TD7. That's the intended reaction for the slug... :lol:
