Running now through midnight July 31st!!!
The Amazon Arrow is on a rampage, copying the powers and abilities from every hero, heroine, villain and villainess that crosses her path. What happens when this ultra-powerful rogue heroine encounters your favorite character?
You tell me!!!
Send in your entries in any medium you prefer:
3D art, 2D art, literature, cosplay, sculpture, you name it… anything goes!
PRIZES: The First Place winner will receive 2400 DeviantArt points! That’s enough for a 12 month Premium DeviantArt Membership for yourself, or you can give the points away to whomever you choose! I will also create gift art and take requests for some of my personal favorite entries!
JUDGING: At the end of the contest I will set up a poll featuring a few of my favorites and the DA community will decide the First Place winner!
WHAT TO DO: Just upload your entry to your DeviantArt gallery like you normally would, then please send me a Note so that I'll know to enter you into the contest!
Here are a few general guidelines for participating artists:
1) I set the story in motion, and I will wrap up the story after the contest... I’m asking you to fill in some of the parts in the middle. Amazon Arrow doesn’t necessarily have to “win” an encounter with your favorite character or characters, but SHE CANNOT BE PERMANENTLY DETAINED OR INCAPACITATED! Her quest must continue.
2) Amazon Arrow wants to copy your character’s power, and she will stop at nothing to get it. She has acquired some pretty impressive powers already and there is no limit to what she might be able to do. She is not afraid to hurt people, but SHE DOES NOT KILL!
3) Of course I would personally love to see your version of the Amazon Arrow, but SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE FEATURED IN YOUR SUBMISSION! I want to see the consequences of AA’s actions in general, but you can do that without including AA herself. For example, you could show the aftermath of a battle (your character lying on the ground with a glowing white arrow sticking out of his/her chest). Or maybe your city’s hero or heroine has been taken out by AA and the villains are taking advantage of the situation. Maybe your heroes and villains team up for mutual protection. There are many consequences that can spinoff of the Power Quest story thus far. Just be creative!
4) Feel free to include DC, Marvel, your own OC’s or any other characters you might like; I’m sure Amazon Arrow will absorb dimension-hopping abilities from somewhere. However please DO NOT use someone else’s OC without checking with them first to get permission.
Enter as many times as you like!
Please help me to spread the word about this contest so that we get some great entries!
My Soul Arrows only affect beings that have souls. I can’t steal your powers if you are a robot, or if you don’t have any powers… but I might stick you with an arrow anyway if you try to interfere with me. And don't forget about all of the other powers that I have recently absorbed.
Feel free to drop me a NOTE if you have any questions about Amazon Arrow or the contest in general, or you just want to say “Hi”!
A good time will be had by all. I have foreseen it. This is what happens.

ArrowedJonni had read about the exploits of Amazon Arrow in the news. Through the gossipy grapevine of the mask and cape crowd, she also heard about some of the less-glamorous situations the heroine found herself in. From a distance, Jonni felt a kind of kinship with the archer, particularly when things didn’t go spectacularly. Recently, the word in the community was that Amazon Arrow was running amok from city to city, displaying powers and capabilities she never had before. Apparently, the Amazon plowed through anyone that got in her way like a force of nature-- hero and villain alike were left strewn in her path, weakened and disoriented. by
Now, reports were coming in that Amazon Arrow had entered Steel City limits.
“Maybe she just caught her friends by surprise,” Jonni thought. “This might be the perfect chance for Jonni-On-The-Spot to show the heroines of Steel City that she’s in their league.”
It wasn’t hard to find

Mr. M looked out over Queen City from the rooftop, his head filled with thoughts. A new heroine had emerged on the scene, called herself Amazon Arrow. It was always nice to have another super person here, as M knew he could only do so much. But then he had heard reports of Amazon Arrow attacking not only criminals, but other heroes. Keeping his smartphone close at hand, if he spotted her, hopefully there were enough supers to handle the situation.
Feeling the rush of air and the sound of boots hitting the ground, M turned around, and froze. It was Amazon Arrow, standing ten feet from him, staring him down. “Everything I've heard about you Mr. M leads me to believe you have no powers. Unfortunately, powers I have recently acquired tell me that you in fact do have them.” She adjusted her stance and prepared to attack.

M slowly opened his eyes, took a deep breath and let his memories flow. Amazon Arrow had found him, beaten him thoroughly and drove a soul arrow through his chest. A flash of light and now what? Getting to a sitting position, he thought it would be difficult and painful considering what happened, but he moved with no problems. His jacket, dress shirt and undershirt were burnt and torn to pieces. Thankfully his pants, shoes and cape were still intact. Pulling his torn clothing aside, he saw the mark where the arrow had pierced his chest. A greyish-blue mark, but no scarring or other distortion or damage to the skin. He was shocked though when he continued looking at his torso.
There should have been scars near his ribs from where he had been lashed many years ago, but like the bullet wound he should have in his left shoulder, the

Chryseis is like a sister to me.
I am Wonder Woman; she is Amazon Arrow. We are both Amazon Champions from the island of Themiscyra; we are both emissaries to Man’s World. We both were chosen to take the place of another, and both have had to fight to earn the respect that our predecessors held in the world.
Chryseis and I have fought side by side in more battles than I can count. Together, we have defeated our fair share of villains, and it was our teamwork, along with that of our friends, that completed the Amazon Odyssey and saved the planet from an unspeakable evil.
So, on this day, when I get word that the Amazon Arrow is fighting three villainesses, in an alley by an abandoned warehouse that I am about to fly over on my way to a Justice League meeting at the Watchtower, my decision is an easy one. I call in and let the Watchtower know that I will be a little late, and I drop down from the sky, quickly assessing the situation as I descend.

A solitary figure was creeping along the roof of the biggest jewelry store in Queen City to get to the skylight. Once there, the figure was looking around the base of it for a connection to an alarm system. The figure wasn’t aware of another figure floating in the air a few dozen feet above of her.
Wow, I almost missed whoever that is down there. There has to be some kind of power at play to keep them so quiet. That’s what I need to get next. The figure hovering in the air licked her lips at the prospect of gaining power as the ring on her right hand glowed faintly before she started to descend to the rooftop.
The figure on the rooftop had finally disarmed the alarm and had gotten the rope out of the bag carefully set down next to the skylight as a hand started to feel along the sides for a catch of some kind before the figure felt something moving around from behind. Spinning around
Amazon Arrow's Quest for Power Entry: Part 1I had heard that one of the capes had gone rogue apparently, and it appeared that her hunger was what was driving her. It was believed that she had been through a great deal and snapped. Their have been other heroines who ran into her and wound up suffering the same MO. Well. . . It's not really an MO technically speaking, since they all seemed fine after words. Just drained. Most of the blue boys were able to talk with the ones who suffered from the encounter. Most of them explaining the same details. Aggressive, ruthless, cold, some sort of mischievous grin on her face. The one thing that caught my attention was her eyes. Each one of them had said the same thing. Her eyes seemed. . . different. The worst part about this situation is the criminal super freaks were also aiming to take her out once and for all. Something I preferred NOT to happen. The last thing needed is having a Superman Disaster.
Amazon Arrow's Quest for Power Entry: Part 2"Your leaving quite a trail behind you. . ." I said to the Amazon Rogue leaning against the hood of my 57. It took me some time, but I was able to finally pinpoint where she was. Just interacting with some of the unconscious thugs pointed me in the right direction. I had spent most of the day trying to find the heroine, and confront her in search for answers. Thankfully, I was able to catch her before the blue boys did. Hopefully Chief Darling was able to give me the time I needed. The heroine looked over her shoulder to me. Her back turned while looking down at the fallen villain she had just dropped. "This does not concern you!" she hissed at me. Obviously, she didn't want to deal with me.
"I think it does." I said to her. "Considering how many people you managed to piss off with your power hungry surge. . ." I pushed off my 57 and stood before her. She shot around looking to me. I noted her eyes first.
Amazon Arrow's Quest for Power Entry: Part 3Now for those that are wondering how it was possible that I was able to get that much, it's really hard to explain. Normally, my foresight has a limited capability itself of what it can do when I use it. Certain things are hazy due to how often it's noticed to the general eye. Faces, License plates, Street Names, Addresses. These are things we don't pay attention to. What happened, weather it was of stupidity or not is entirely up for debate, had to pertain to the rings themselves. Since the trio had removed Bess from the rings, it ran it's full potential as it was intended to, but also acted as an amplifier for my foresight to kick in when I tried to use it when Chryseis, and I were sharing Memories. Even though I was able to gain that much in whatever amount of time it was, it doesn't necessarily mean that was all I was getting from it. At the same time, it doesn't mean she left empty handed. Double A know holds the memories that by

Deirdre O`Neil aka The Doll arrives in the Queen City bus terminal.
As the villainess Doll, she has left Gravitas` group, no longer interested in being his 'muscle'. But today, while she`s away from Angel Falls, Deirdre hopes to have one more chance to land a modeling gig and because of her powers, she is banned from modeling in L.A. and in Angel Falls.
At first, it got her depressed but her friends Alexis Pennington and Harriet Chin has helped her through it.
Unfortunately the twin brother of Ms.Blitzen could care less for Dierdre herself.However as Doll, she has more of a reputation for destruction.
Little did she know that thats not going to be the case.
Forty-five minutes later
"Little man hurt Dierdre! Try that with Doll!" she growls.
Field is exstatic. "Did you film that Hammond? Tell me you got her transformation" he shouts.
Hammond nods "Yes sir. I did barely"

It had been a while since Melinda Crane had a vacation. So when she received the invitation from her friend, and former Guardian, White Owl, she couldn't reply yes quick enough. It had been a while since had visited with White Owl and nearly as long since she had been in Queen City. As she walked the streets looking in the various shops and boutiques for a new dress, she couldn't stop smiling.
"I hope Ultra Woman is there as well," she thought to herself.
It was also nice to be in a city that had no idea who Mindy Marvel was. It was difficult for her to shop like this in Angel Falls, but here the people don't give her a second look.
Her excitement was tempered very quickly when she saw Blockhead. It had been few years since her last run in with the big brawler whose name was partially inspired by his super strength and concrete exterior...and partially because of his below average intelligence. He was charging down the street after stealing two conta

I wake up. The first thing I sense is that I am hanging from my wrists, which are bound together. My feet aren’t touching the floor. The room is dark, except for a single, bright light that is shining directly on me.
“The Princess is awake.” I hear the voice of Plasma Cat, and it snaps me to reality, and the dire predicament I seem to be in. I look around…and see the shadow of The Broad. The last thing I remember was getting hit with her fist, and I shudder involuntarily at the memory.
“Where am I…”
“Far from home, Princess. Far from anything at all, really. Trust me, no one is ever going to find you down here, unless we want them to.”
“Don’t call me Princess,” I snarl at her. “So, we are underground?”
“Yes, but don’t expect me to give anything else away. Not that it matters – you aren’t going anyw
Chryseis meets the AvatarsChryseis, the Amazon Arrow flew over Queen City her mind buzzing as she searched for more powers to absorb, ever since she had started this she had fought friend and foe alike after attacking a foe that somehow gave her a vision that told her she had to absorb powers from others in order to stop all capes being wiped out by a powerful foe. At the back of her mind she felt something was wrong somewhere but the desire to find more power soon squashed it down. She smiled as she looked down from her flight to see a bunch of thugs fighting a figure dressed in custom armour. by
She watched as the figure used a variety of marital arts techniques she had seen briefly when she and the Jade Eagle had escaped fiendish device months back that had held them prisoner while repeatedly spanking them. She shook that memory of that night from her mind and watched as the young woman beneath her suddenly rolled backwards with one arm outstretched as one of the thugs pulled an MP5K from under his
Amazon Arrow meets a knightAs she walked down an empty street, Amazon Arrow almost thought she would at last enjoy a calm day. A monkey has less hair than I've had foes during the last month, she thought. Her challengers had been proud heroes and despicable villains alike and most of them had been vanquished. The others... I'll put 'em down soon enough. by
Her stroll led her on a deserted plaza. The sight of it prompted her to wonder where had all the inhabitants gone. She spotted a bar and some shops, all of which were utterly lifeless. The only sound she could hear were the howling of the wind, some creaking doors and a tumbleweed tumbling in circles here and there. There were no clues for her to emit the slightest hypothesis about the phenomenon that had emptied the burgh so.
Nor did it matter to her. This place was no more than a mere stopover in her journey. For the nonce, she sought individuals blessed with powers she could absorb and there was clearly none to be found here. 'might be this ve
Amazon Arrow vs. Steel-SoulAmazon Arrow - Quest for Power Entry: by
Encounter with a Soul of Steel
The evening moon slowly began to rise into the evening as the empowered Amazon Arrow followed her latest mystical cue to a new city. Ever since draining the hidden oracle abilities of that arcane mage some time ago, she had kept herself on course as those powers guided her to her next objective. Although a tiny part of her mind still called at her to stop this overzealous quest to become stronger by draining the powers of villains AND heroes, Chryseis kept on seeking the level of power she needed... for what was to come.
Presently, Chryseis landed on a rooftop in the downtown area of Chicago, and looked about for her latest prey. Her assimiliated mystical gift had told her that something was going to present itself in this area for her to challenge and defeat, but exactly what that was, her appropriated gift had not shown her. Not to mention, after finding and easily defeating that tactical suit-clad human, many of he
