Really amazing entries. Great ideas, everyone! :3
Never fear - Iron Cat is here!
Being neither iron nor technically a cat, Icee is ready to defend the earth from evil.
Like any decent hero, he quickly grew a fan base once he began his heroic endeavors. The creature fed off the attention, thrilled that he was not only accepted but celebrated. He was happy, and more importantly, he was making a difference.
But it wasn't enough. His body couldn't fight as hard and as fast as his mind wanted to.
A few rough defeats and the world shut him away, already forgetting the Chimera. There were better heroes.
That wouldn't be the end of Apollo. He wouldn't let it be. He couldn't go back to being so alone, so.. unneeded.
When the world started to turn to evil, he took action. Whatever was necessary, the cat would do it to become the warrior he knew he could be. He took action and began to upgrade his body as if it were a machine. It was a long, painful process, both mentally and psychically. In the end, he sacrificed his humanity for power. While the Iron Cat is a hero, he can be unpredictable, known to fly into blind rages or malfunctions
. Hopefully it was worth it in the end.
Whew, finally done. Worked all week on this (Except the first three days, since the contest just happened to start when I was out of state
) and then when it was time to submit.. I hit the wall of ambivalence. Hard. Anxiety's a crazy thing. This contest was really fun though. Thank you for hosting it, BD, and everyone who entered for displaying your talents. ^3^
