As you enter the cave, creepy creatures and plants surround you. You step deeper into it, and deeper, and deeper...and emerge into a brightly light office.
"Welcome-I'm BobaFett2. This is where I work, sleep, and eat. You are lost? Nonsense-we invited you here!"
"Look behind me-those are Egyptian Hieroglyphs-they hold great power. We have studied them, and discerned much from the symbols."
"This rocket commemorates the first rocket launch."
"This snake is just there. I like to see it squirm."
"So what is this place? It is....Project....SUPERHERO! In here, we experiment with radioactivity and the transfer of superpowers. We have created superheroes and also created many horrors, which we are forced to lock up. While the project was once unfunded, it is now funded by the government of communist countries. In return, they request a few superheroes and send top soldiers to be given powers. I have no powers, but after we are done experimenting on some of the most deadly species and figure out how to increase survival rates, I plan to get superpowers...."
"Not all tests are successful. Some result in injury, death, or horrible, disfiguring, and hilarious transformations."
"For those who are close to death, we have a hospital cave. Robots monitor the patients, and they are put in special robo-suits in order to help them make it through alive. Most do not, for they succumb to the dangers or radiation. For example, the man on the left is bald,gray, and has breathing troubles. The man in the middle has turned translucent and became very weak. Attempts are being made to make him opaque again. The last guy...oh...he's dead. It seems that his respiratory systems were yanked out."
"The Scorpion and the Purple Guy with Spikes and Teeth are both very dangerous. Conversely, the Bat has amazing powers."
"Stung by a scorpion, this man is close to death. He lives on, in a power-suit, and will fight crime until he draws his last breath. The man in the middle had his clothing shredded by the Purple Guy with Spikes and Teeth and was savaged by him. He gained no superpowers, and sadly, we did not get to see him turn purple. The last man, has become a powerful and famous superhero, turning green after receiving a bat bite. His powers are numerous, but he disappeared after the transformation and is not a part of the project any longer."
"We invited Flare as a guest, and he decided that he would like to see what happens when someone is bitten by a radioactive ostrich. Little did he know that the bite would be aimed at a very sensitive spot...."
"And that he would then proceed to turn into an idiot! His face was twisted into an idiotic grin, his chin grew a spiral, his hair turned purple, and his intelligence plummeted!"
"This is what happens when you get bitten by a radioactive crocodile. He will receive a replacement arm in 4-6 weeks, via Amazon."
"The following are some of our better test subjects."
"We had this guy bitten by a wolfman. It's not a werewolf-more of a crossbreed (AGH-freaky) of the two."
"He became hairy (er), has fangs, and likes to bite things. He is also very, very strong."
"Through the waters swim our top hero and best test case."
"Shark man, whose only weakness is his weakness while out of water, fights crime (assuming that it falls into the water), and can bite the head off of a criminal with ease. He's scary, but very lawful."
"The Imp, once known as Jack Brown, was bitten by a Pheonix. After creating this rare bird in our labs and having it bite him, it died. We could not re-create another one, and I believe that his powers are the greatest of all. The Imp can cause himself to turn into ashes and then be resurrected, all of his wounds healed. The Imp can fly, and can turn himself into a Pheonix-man if necessary. He is incredibly strong and fast, and has an affinity for fire."
"Here is Jim. He was bitten by a radioactive spider."
"He grew two arms, his head morphed into some otherworldly object with 4 eyes, and he likes swords now. He calls himself the Red Spider. Among his powers are web shooting, wall climbing, *cough*plagiarizing*cough*, and sword skills. Or as he likes to say, sword skillz."
"Nicholas Greeblen was bitten by an ice piranha, one of the few naturally radioactive fish in the world."
"He became Freezerdude, his face transforming and becoming immensely cool, gaining ice powers, and the ability to swim through ice."
"Mick was bitten by a radioactive ant."
"He became Orange Death, with a face like a jack-o-lantern and an extremely tough hide. He also became certifiably insane and extremely intelligent. Of course I'm smarter than him. Of course."
"The gray ghost. He just appeared. I think he was bitten by SOMETHING, but I have no clue what. He kind of scares me, but he only helps out, so we let him stay. Anyways, he can turn immaterial, so we can't hurt him if he doesn't want to."
"He can be in two places at once. Scary."
"This guy claims that his name is Mark. He was our first test subject, back from when we were considered a crackpot institution. As a result, there are no records on him. He prefers to be called Angelman, able to fly, illuminate the surrounding area with light, and put curses on his enemies."
"So, will you join us? I'm sorry, but you can't leave. The world is not allowed to know our secrets. Yet...MUAHAHAHAHA!"
Here's some free images of the cave. I used the little holes in the walls to let light in and to fit the plant pieces. I tried using those 1x1 round plates, but I'm not sure if I accurately captured what they normally do.
Design Notes: I really liked making the guys. I just find that there is something fun about putting together figs. It started out as an evil scientist's laboratory, but then I decided to make some monsters, but they turned into superheroes. My "office" is my favorite part of the whole thing. I do like the cave entrance, but the office is my favorite part. The rest of the builds are just little setups. I lost my fourth tan cone, so the crocodile cage is incomplete. And I had to use Buzz's stupid face...
