THE VILLAIN, when a man's unfathomably deep frustrations weaken the barriers between his mind and the minds of those beyond, becoming deformed and deranged in the process. As the nameless horrors force themselves onto our fragile world, their aspects increasingly and grotesquely intersect with that of their unfortunate host. Let's call him OCTOPUSMAN.
THE HERO, Pavel Parson takes great pride in his ingenuity. Having always been as weak as a kitten, he has had to make up for the shortcomings of his frame with the breadth of his intellect. He scales the urban landscape with the aid of his mechanical contraptions, moving with far more dexterity and grace than even the most physically able of his peers. Let's call him DR. SPIDER.
Also preliminary linework.
