Here's a few of the new ones that I have worked on.
First is Wind Savage- a girl from another time who is pulled to the modern era and now tries to survive this new jungle.
Powers: Wind and abnormal strength
Origin- On an Island separated by time where dinosaurs roamed the world alongside humans there exsisted  a tribe known as the Wind. A group of cave people who were blessed with the ability to use the wind to gain speed. K'ira was the latest child born into the Wind and was she said to be very talented in her hunting and speed.
In this universe it was the Dinosaurs who became the dominant species and ruled with iron claw against the humans, subjecting them to Harsh gladiator matches and massacres. Ruled over by the dreaded Lord Snarl.
To combat the Wind whom he deemed savages, he instigated a burn campaign which meant the massacre of villages and burning them to the ground taking humans as spoils. K'ira was saved by the Wind as it created a powerful gust which as if by magic brought her to the modern world. Now she tries to make sense of this strange time that she was thrusted into and works to prepare for the fight against Snarl.

Desert Star- an Arabic hero who is given powers after touching a fallen star.
powers: Flight and light based powers


And finally my favorite Monsieur Monkey- once an ordinary monkey, he was enveloped in brain manipulation rays that heightened his intelligence. 
Powers: Intellect, psychic ability and savant style martial arts and caporeia.

Some cool designs there, sux. I love Desert Star's outfit and Monsieur Monkey is awesome. 
I have a couple of comments/suggestions:
If Monsieur Monkey's enhancements are purely mental (ie. He's still physically a monkey, not some sort of monkey-human hybrid) then his proportions should be that of a monkey rather than a person. What sort of monkey is he, BTW? 
I've noticed that you tend to be rather literal in the way you name your characters, with names like “Wind Savage” and “Pistol Centurion”.  I have the same tendency myself.
It's preferable though, to come up with names that don't just describe a character's powers (or don't even describe their powers) in favour of conveying you a bit more about their nature. 

Some examples from the comics:
A villain with the ability to change shape could be called something like ‘Shifter’. Marvel chose the name ‘Mystique’, which conveys a sense of mystery, allure and untrustworthiness.  DC chose the name ‘Oracle’ for their super-hacker character which emphasises her knowledge and mysteriousness rather than her literal ‘power’ of computing skills. etc. etc. 
This is especially common amongst badass normals. The Question, The Guardian, Gangbuster, Silk Spectre, the Punisher and Mr Terrific are all unpowered humans but you get very different feel for each character just by their names.
That said, don't mess with “Monsieur Monkey” - that's just awesome. :D

I do see your point about it and I'm still kinda tinkering with them. I honestly used a random name generator to come up with some of the names and just tried to figure out how to make them work.
I think with Monsieur Monkey he's kinda meant to be a throwback to Detective Chimp more or less.

Oh, that makes sense if they're randomly generated names!  That's a good approach for coming up with characters. Once you've come up with the characters and are familiar with their background and personality, it might still be worth reviewing the name.
Would you mind if I did fanart of some of your characters? I could use the practice. I'd particularly like to have a go at a Spider Monkey version of Monsieur Monkey…
BTW, have you decided which are heroes, which are villains and which are neither or both, yet?

Well Monsieur is a hero and so is Desert, Wind is a neutral party since she's kinda a caveperson XD
But yeah go right ahead,  I'm just use to drawing humans that I'm still learning to draw animals hahah :P
I'll work on their origins so they will make more sense.

I assume both the goddess and the child are active inside their communal body?  I see her as being sort of above it all and aloof and him being very idealistic and passionate.

SUX wrote at 7:53AM, Jan. 10, 2014:
That looks amazing and yes go right ahead with that.
I think that would an interesting dynamic and yeah I do see them as being both conscious and perhaps in some ways fighting over what they need to do.
I'm glad I got back to work on them, now I gotta work on an origin for Spatulator XD

The two characters that have been fleshed out a bit have been split off into their own topics.
Ancient Mariner: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/forum/topic/176081/
Monsieur Monkey: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/forum/topic/176082/
EDIT: Stone Torch has her own topic now too: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/forum/topic/176102/

Unfortunately, it's not really possible to split off partial posts. :(  I've edited in the context where possible, but there's still the odd quirk where it looks like we're responding to nothing. xO  Sorry about that.
