Here's my (very last-minute) entry:

Name: NightMech One
Weapons: Shoulder-Mounted Laser Cannon, Energy-Baton
Description: The NightMech One was built for Nightwing by Batman in response to the 'Secret Crisis'. The mech is small and agile, acting as almost an extension to Nightwing's abilities. It was specially equipped with rocket boosters for this mission, though they are removable. It also has a shield for, well, shielding and a satellite dish for long-range communications.

Thanks so much for another awesome contest!

This is my entry for Poison Ivy
It photosynthesizes cosmic radiation and whatnot. It is immune to energy weapons, as it feeds on energy discharges, but it is vulnerable to bladed weaponry. But don't let that vulnerability make you think it's weak! It's biotechnological exterior is fibrous and hardy, and can be hacked at by lumberjackbots for hours before tumbling. Not that it would let anything near it that long! Its secondary attacks are spore based, since pheromones don't travel well in vacuums. The spores, issuing from its flower pores on the "head", corrode into circuitry and hijack systems much like Poison Ivy affects nervous systems. Don't be surprised to find your mech siding with this floral nightmare against your fellow heroes!Image

Got me a last minute entry!

The Carnage symbiote was born with dangerous and deadly abilities before the Secret Crisis.
Cletus Kasady is a homicidal psychopath with the alien bonded in his blood. Combined with technology stolen from Reed Richard's lab the alien symbiote can now grow to enormous size and possesses incredible strength.

This new and deadly and shape-shifting form endows Maximum Carnage with the ability to project a web-like substance from any part of the mech including the formation of weapons making Maximum Carnage the ultimate mech killer.

I present my entry for the hero James "Bucky" Barnes as The Winter Soldier.

In a recent mission to stop the activation of sleeper agents, the Winter Soldier comes upon yet another hidden facility of the former Soviet Union's Secret Science Division, Department X. Inside he finds the "Arsenal" prototype war machine. As he moves toward the cockpit the machine begins to activate. Inside the cockpit he discovers a socket that it is perfectly designed to fit his cybernetic prosthetic arm. This machine was designed for him! He can control the machine like an extension of his body. With the Secret Crisis at hand he has little time to get those old Soviet emblems off. He'll have the boys give it a star spangled makeover when he gets back. Assuming he does make it back, but then again you should never count out James "Bucky" Barnes!

^I have to say, these last 3 mechs look pretty cool. And Iggins, I'm so glad you made it in.
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

I think it's just perfectly hidden behind the front leg, if you look closely you can see the lime toes

Ya... I looked at the original picture, and it was definitely just a camera angle thing. It's not edited out, it's just obscured. And now I'm at some opening with my girlfriend and might not be able to edit a backup choice in time. It's really starting to drive me crazy. Stop looking awful, picture I took!!!

If our entry makes it to the bracket phase, will the mech's description be shown with it? My robot is turning out to be quite crazy, and could need a good deal of explanation.

Wow. We might not get ANY new posts in the last several hours of the contest. Wasn't somebody saying something about an "Aquaman's undersea attacker" or somesuch?

I've got most of a mech built, but sadly becoming a dad has taken precedent over the last couple weeks. So barring a last minute extension of the deadline, I'll be waiting till the next contest to embarrass myself in front of superior competition.

LegoCloneFanatic: Your mech, I believe, is breaking the rules since it is extremely similar to the Lex Luthor Power Armor set. You still have a little time to make some changes... ...otherwise, you'll be disqualified. :(

Penguin's WADDLER

THE WADDLER

In response to the Secret Crisis, The Penguin built the following mech to take advantage of the situation. Armed with Gatling guns and surface to air missles, The WADDLER is a force to be dealt with. What it lacks in speed and agility , it more then makes up for in strength and power.
