Volume 7 - Final Duty by Oneiric-Studios Volume 7 - Final Duty by Oneiric-Studios
My entry for the Scott Pilgrim contest. I deviated from the film and opted for the graphic novel style instead, making a mock up of the next volume in continuing onto an 8th Evil Ex.

My character's name is Adam Edelwine (right), Ramona's only long-standing friend from back in high school. He was her unofficial boyfriend, the "Ex that Never Was." Through all of the events that brought Ramona to where she is at the end of the film/novel, Adam was the friend that would always catch her after every Ex, until she disappeared after Gideon. It took him a while, but Adam at finds Ramona once again, who is now together with Scott Pilgrim.

Adam reaches breaking point. Having spent so much time spent over her in their give-and-take relationship, he comes to challenge Scott and Ramona's love in hopes of finally being recognized by her as more than "just a friend."

Character Bio - Adam Edelwine - name means "Man" and "Noble Friend"

Strength:
+ "The Power of Understanding"
+ "The Power of Love (Unrequited)"
+ Determination

Weaknesses:
- Impaired Vision
- Wavering Hope
- Broken Heart

Weapon of Choice: Broken sword (formerly "The Power of Love")

Fighting Style: Freestyle & Boxing

I like this because it has potential and seems to fit. The guy who always there for her and Scott's nice enough to recognize his efforts and feel bad. At the same time, Adam has to face the one he probably cannot beat. For Scott's faults, he is a genuinely good person. To be honest, it would also probably be interesting if the two met and were friendly before becoming aware of who they were and having the battle coming out of harsh words and uncomfortable truths both have to face about themselves, Ramona and other matters.

Dude you should most definitely make a whole fancomic out of this one!
It really is perfect. Your character has a darn good reason for not being mentioned earlier. And his reason for "snapping" and becomming the last evil ex is pretty good too and makes him the most dangerous one.
Please let me know if you ever look into it.

I think this is awesome although it would have been nice if you had actually finished the description on the "back" of the graphic novel.

aww crud... it word-wrapped just past the text box dimensions.

It ends with "Can she stand losing both of them." Oh well, whatever happened happened and won't be undone until after judging, I guess.

Thanks for lettin' me know.
