Metamorphon: Leader of the Legion of Might

Back in 1993, the magazine Disney Adventures held a contest to see which kid could create the best superhero. According to DA, 4,000 entries were received but only would be crowned the leader of the Legion of Might.

I think it would've been interesting to see a couple of the other heroes in true comic book form. Games and Gravityman come to mind. I wonder what the criteria was DA used to pick the winners. I'm pretty sure they looked at creativity, origin and powers so maybe Metamorphon had the best origin, weakness, powers and villain because I know they judged on all of that. Oh, well.

All characters are probably owned by the Walt Disney Company, if not, then they are owned by the person who owns them.

I had forgotten that this was such a short story. You would think DA would attempt to do a decent story with an origin and such but I guess they needed room for that horrible Superman trivia game on the page before these. Yes, we all know about The Adventures of SuperPup, now just let it die!
