I've had a new idea for a Christmas/Holiday-esque challenge we could do. Since we can't copy last year and do 'christmas themed characters', how about we do a Dr. Doom gift lockbox inspired thing? You have to create a lockbox themed around the Dr. Doom and Hybrid Lockboxes, with the lockbox itself, and the hero, and lockbox rewards. Comic covers and other complex stuff could be optional.
I doubt we have many contests left in this wiki, so I figure we may as well get off a lockbox one before the membership is too low for it to even get done. Thoughts?

I forgot about Howard honestly, he was always sort of dead in my roster.
I'm thinking the criteria would be relatively open - just make a hero who has some sort of reason for being a LB (so they can't be ALL good, either anti-hero, reformed villain or just villain), and fill the boxes with fun loot as well as the hero. I don't even think we'd have to necessarily limit it to Marvel.
Ray penta III had just finished a lovely cup of tea at a local shop. Taking a breath of the sweet fall air he sighs and wishes that what happened next didn't have to. As he's thinking this Luna walks up and says "Take me back ."
Luna: you know where and when. I need my family back.
Ray: I can't do that Luna. It's...
Luna yells: DON'T TELL ME YOU CANT DO IT, YOU NAME YOURSELF THE FIRST OF THE TIMELORDS?! YOU VOW TO TRAVEL TIME AND SPACE TO SAVE PEOPLE!? THEN YOU GO BACK ON THAT PROMISE BY NOT HELPING ME!?
Ray: there are rules Luna I can't break them.
Luna: if you wont break them, I'll break you. Luna attacks with her starry blasts. Ray puts on his perception filter necklace while dodging her attack. Manipulates time to run up and sock her in the mouth. Then runs away. Dodging another attack he says " luna you can't win you know. I can move faster than time itself if I want. Really you don't want to do this."
Luna: "I WANT MY FAMILY." Blinds Ray and strikes him over and over before he can move.
Ray finally able to move keeps putting himself in the way of her attacks protecting the innocent coffee shop customers.
Ray: look at what your doing! This destruction it's not what your family would have wanted!
Luna: YOU DIDNT KNOW THEM! Blasts Ray again and again and again until Ray is burned to a crisp. Her anger burning in her she realizes she might have just killed her last chance at saving her people.
Then Ray uses his hidden healing power to keep himself from death and rises again with renewed focus ready to do all he can to stop Luna. He zips around with his time manipulation pushing her into her own blasts and following up with strikes of his own.
Moving faster than the eye could see he attacked again and again over and over until victory seemed imminent and realized he had made a horrible mistake.
Because while he used his time powers Luna was faking her injuries and using her energy absorbing powers to absorb his time particle radiation gaining the ability to time travel temporarily. She laughed as she said. "I told you I'd go back." Teleporting into the past she arrives at the moon just in time to see the first wave of attacking bandits. As she tries to start her attack Ray appears in front of her taking the full force once again. She asks why he won't let her save her family.
Ray: "Luna I'm sorry but time is like a river. Each event is a stone that is thrown into the stream subtlety diverting it. The death of your people is a stone I just can't let be moved without changing the course of the river down the stream for the worse."
Luna: I...I... I don't believe you. Attacks again in earnest zipping along the battle field. Giving up the use of her energy blasts she simply hits Ray absorbing the clean sunlight to augment her strength to Stellar proportions.
As Ray attempts to counter attack despite being weak from his recent time jumps. Luna become invulnerable from the sunlight and the time particles acting together. She wails on him until he is nearly to the point of healing again when he says. "Let me show you." Grabbing her arm he jumps through time first to the near future where he shows her how her people soon after the bandits attacked react by building an army. Despite the protestations of the king and queen the general soon convinced everyone that preemptive strikes were the only way to protect their people. One more small jump into the future and Luna sees herself at the head of the army as queen with the general as the king after convincing their people that the former king and queen were corrupt. Another leap and Luna is standing over the dead general a dagger of light in her hand.
Luna: your lying. This.. This can't be the future. It can't be.
Ray: It is. I'm sorry Luna but the only way to prevent it is to let history take its course. The stream must flow.
Luna: I can't allow it.
Ray: I'm sorry. Throws a final punch knocking her out then absorbs the last of her time particles back into himself teleporting to the present just after they left. Then he leaves her in a sunny field to recharge and goes off to the next adventure.
I was just curious what he thought of it. I asked him in chat and got halfway through posting it in pm and he left so I posted here for him to see at his leisure. That being said I can post it in comments of main board? I'm not sure how many words it is. Is it absolutely neccesary for it to be at least 750 words?

We need a name for the WWC Spec Ops, and I don't think "Civil War" would be that good. How about "Special Operations - Flamewar", "Special Operations - Don't Feed the Trolls" or "Special Operations - War-torn Wiki". I personally prefer the first, but I'll need other opinions before I can make the page.
It's just kind of bland. We could have done "Hacked Wiki" last time, but we had a more clever title for the same thing. That's why I liked Flamewar, since a flamewar is an enraged fight between users online.
