War For Purity (contest entry) by 


For the bubblewrap
This Is a comic idea I’ve had in my head for sometime. I’m still trying to develop a story. So far, the story kicks off withe the main character, Eric (middle), in a “metropolis” in a somewhat distant future. He’s an ex-marine who resigned after a tragedy that caused him to become a cyborg. I’m still thinking of names for the other two villains in the background. The on to the right is sort of like a political leader.
In this story, The is a revolutionary invention that allows the soul and conscious of a human in to a machine. His philosiphy is that everyone becomes one of those machines as a part of the evolution of mankind
To the left is another leader who’s is in charge of those in the “outlands” (post apocalyptic environment outside of the metropolis). He is very religious and believes the citizens of the metropolis should be eradicated because the majority of them are “non-believers.”
So the obvious conflict is religion vs. atheism, but the main conflict is truth vs. corruption, and this is pretty much muckraking both sides of belief and finding truth.

Finally, after so much re-uploading, It is complete. First, there was a white spot at the bottom of the image. Then, I realized the person on the left’s hair wasn’t fully colored. It’s all fixed now

    I love the idea of down loading a dead ones consciousness and (dare I say it) soul rhythmic patterns and saved onto a disc to later be embodied in a walking computer capable of mimicking their previous existence.
    I can imagine paying for the storage and transfer via insurance while still alive then and only then would you be allowed to be regenerated as it were in this metallic form once there was a job vacancy available to actually pay off the the finance for your new body (like buying a car) once you have repaid the cost of your body your free again to live as before and return to a normal life
    Maybe the government owns you until its paid up and makes you work for them as military?
    You could have attachments like extra limbs etc..to help work more efficiently.
    Eventually like you said the whole human race could evolve into a race of cyborg/robotics as healthy people opt for a body transplant so that they can get jobs to work as hard as the robotic workers do because employers will only want robotic workers because they will work harder/faster, with no need for dinner breaks or having to nip off to go to the toilet and could work for longer hours.
    Mere humans could not compete and become obsolete!
    Every three years you could opt for a re-fit or new upgraded model, bigger and more reliable version, eventually doing away with vehicles because you could have wheels as an added option and the next step would be flight!
    If you crash your insurance company burns off another you from its vast memory banks into a replacement body.

    I think you have the start of a great idea and would make a really good movie!

  • Thank you for the awesome compliment. Those are pretty ineresting ideas. Also I was thinking that because a person takes on a mechanical body, they will be subjected to viruses and power hungry hackers. Another thing with upgrades and the military is that you could be downloaded into 20ft. War machines. If this does become a movie, I will be over excited!

    I believe this idea of yours would make a great movie! I’ve seen many block buster movies with far weaker story lines make it big so it has every chance.
    I have no idea how but you need to get this out there and sell it on.
    A virus idea thrown in the mix could be what it needs, a purpose to the story line is to make them safer or even the virus could be savior? eventually everyone would shut down infected and only the few remaining humans alive would re-inherit the earth again and have learn to fend for themselves again!
    The purpose built virus could actually make them turn on each other?

    The name of the virus= “Digitally equipt automated termination host” or D.E.A.T.H for short lol

    I’ve entered an idea for this contest myself but i hope you win and once your idea gets into a comic format it will only be a matter of time before a movie must be considered!

    Good look matey, Your idea has so many turns and twisted paths it could follow the possibilities are endless.

  • You have some AWESOME ideas! thank you again for your support. Also, the main character is kind of against the whole robotic evolution, because he doesn’t like machines. There will be a flashback that plays throughout the story that explains why.

    Your very welcome :)

    Identity theft could realy become a problem too!

    Also if there becomes no need for vehicals then the vehical manufacturers would convert their factorys to mass produce the bodies, just think on Christmas day everyone sits down to watch the queens yearly speech with A Rolls Royce badge stuck to her forehead lol

    Sports players would have hi spec sports car manufactored bodies, imagine Manchester United in Porche bodies wearing their sponsors upgrades and paintwork by Addidas with VodaPhone etc.. over their chest plates!

    I would buy it!
    Its like a story from the British comic 2000AD

    OW man i just had a great idea-
    Reading your idea again about the main guy in your idea not liking or trusting in the very idea of playing god and giving machines control with downloaded human emotions from a dead person (down loaded before they died)
    The main guy, one of the few remaining totaly fleshy humans hates the Machine people or Tec-Mec’s as they become known, not just because of the fact that he doesnt trust them but because of the toxic waste they emit but because the mass majority of the worlds population is now a Tec-Mec the government dont see it as a priority problem so fleshys are reduced to wearing aspirators when out in public to filter the fumes.
    As the Tec-mec’s become more technicaly advanced they become faster, bigger etc. accidents arnt seen as a massive problem because if your damaged you get re loaded in a new body but this carelesness leads to an accident involving him!
    He wakes in hospital and to his horror has been repaired into a shiny new metalic body!
    A new law was passed to cut out all the red tape involved when all these accidents happen alowing hospitals (now mainly repair shops) to carry out these body transfers without concent so that all the paperwork can be done post opperation.
    He screems and hates his now metalic body, he is shown the horrific remains of his fleshy shell!
    SUICIDE! yes he thinks, suicide is my only option!
    His many attempts to commit suicide fail because its illegal in every country to let yourself die untill he pays back the cost of his body.
    As soon as he killed himself he was reborn in hospital agian, over and over!
    On his average wage it will take 20 years to cover the cost!!!

    So begins his epic adventures to rid himself of this living hell by working against the system that gave him life!
    Is he Victim or Villan?

    Alianator :)

  • Actually, that’s his mindset when he becomes a cyborg. He does attempt “cut the cable” during the operating procedure after waking up from the anesthesia, but he gets caught. That’s his only attempt at suicide. Other than that, he’s still has a hardened soldier mentality. Idk about the chemical waste, because this a more war focused comic and also focuses on being morally and mentally sound.

    Also, do you know when the winner is going to be announced? It’s driving me nuts. :(

    Not sure to be honest but my guess is there will be a mesage in the inbox of all the people who took part to let them know how it ended

    Tough break dude!

    I still think your idea is best, but they have only gone by the art work not the story behind it.

    I think they will introduce their own story line using a team of writers moving away from the winners idea anyway, he will have no say in how it progresses (i think)

    Alianator
    ( PS.- I still think you need to find a way to get this idea out there)

  • I know :( but I guess it’s a good thing. I would like to have more control over my story. Of course, the idea being mine and all.
