Powers: Pheromones 100x that of the average human, combined with limited Telepathy, almost any man is immediately led to believe he is in love with her and would do anything she requests. Able to bend their will, and control their desires she is able to repress any aggressive behavior or Ill will towards her.

Has never found love due to the fact that she has never known if someone's feelings for her are real or just their uncontrollable desir
e for her due to her powers. Joined Xaiver's X-men for companionship, to use her power for a noble reason and in hope of finding a mutant able to resist her powers and love her for her.

Always found with faithful companion and protector, Mars.

Powers: Super Human strength, uncontrolled rage, extremely limited intelligence.

Mars was found by the mob and used as their number one enforcer for years due to his strength and rage. His mob leaders would convince him that his targets had wronged him in some way and he should get revenge. He never fully understood any of the reasons given, but the slightest provacation was enough to set him in motion. Due to his low intellegence he is in essence asexual and single minded in his anger until the day when his gang was stopped by Venus. Mars is the only man that on first meeting Venus has not immediately desired her, but her mere presence fills him with a peace he has never felt before. Venus felt that Mars needed a second chance and was happy to have the company of a man who didn't desire her as every man in the past has. Mars wears a self-imposed chain around his neck, to help control his violent impulses, which Venus leads him around by, only letting him loose when she is in danger and needs to be protected.

I think this idea would work better as villans, but I'm making them hero's for the sake of the contest.
I'm thinking of this back story and writing it late at night and I'm tired, so if it doesn't make sense, I'm sorry.
Oh, I should also point out, venus is the roman goddess of love, Mars is the roman god of war

I just LOVE their background, yes I do. Original :D

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus? Oh bullshi+!!! Men are obviously from Uranus. *ducks and runs* :)
(either way, they were eventually bound to hook up, because love typically leads to war in some form or another ;)

edit: still cracks me up everytime I see that "coalition of bald men without children" :D

Good entry kejo..I don't remember you drawing in this style before.

Oh this is outstanding and well thought out background for them. When I first saw this I thought you were drawing bad guys as well, but maybe in the near future there is a mutant who is immune to her powers that she falls in love with, only to have him dump her, breaking her heart and altogether making her turn her back on her fellow x-men to follow the darker road and have revenge against all mankind.

Ok, sorry, I'm taking your story and turning it into my own, but so far yours is the most unique entry I've seen and it's gotten my creative writing juices flowing. Bonza kejoko.

Ok, what I don't understand is this: If Venus is looking for someone who can resist her powers, hasn't she found him? You said that Mars is the only one she knows who can resist her powers, and i know he has little intelligence so he may not know how to love her back, but either way, he is resisting still right?

I'm sorry if I confuse you...
