My thinking is that this is just a fun one-time thing, all characters eventually to be stored on the Truth-Justice-Icons wiki, so you wouldn't be committing to more than one character and finding one font (and you could do that in advance, having it ready for the next guy).

Basically, you choose (randomly?) a TrueTypeFont with a cool name (and look), build an ICONS hero/villain named after the font, and use the font in the character title of a PDF (or Blog Post). Bonus points for providing an image of the hero. Or (round robin) someone chooses the font for you, you build the character then choose another font the next person has to use.
