360i and Marvel Entertainment’s Create Your Own Superhero site has just been nominated for a Webby Award. The highly interactive site enables visitors to fully customize a superhero from start to finish using countless hand-drawn comic assets (headgear, facial features, outfits and accessories). The tool also includes Hero Packs, which allow visitors to use assets from their favorite Marvel characters, such as Iron Man and The Hulk. The site was designed with a backend interface where Marvel staff members can easily upload new character assets and manipulate existing images.
Over 24,000 heroes have already been saved and added to the Marvel.com hero gallery – and new assets are being added regularly. Check out the Create Your Own Superhero site and then cast your vote for the People’s Voice Webby Award.
