If real people is a magic card

By real people, I mean TV characters.

I'll just write the abilities and descriptions of the cards. I'll photoshop the cards later (Yeah right).

Sylar (Heroes) 2UBBB
Legendary Creature - Cannibal
2UB, Tap: Remove target creature from the game.
Sylar has the abilities of all cards removed from the game by Sylar.
No question here. Sylar is black and blue. He is a black creature since it fits his characteristics. Such as his desire for power, ambition, corruption, and greed. The blue part represents his manipulation and trickery. The copy abilities represents his ability to obtain the power of people whose brain he had eaten.

Bob (Dresden Files) 1WU
Legendary Creature - Spirit
Tap: Draw a card, then discard a card.
WU: Remove Bob from the game. At the end of turn, return Bob into play under its owner's control
As a condemned spirit who was cursed for eternity due to his practice of necromancy in his life, the obvious choice would be a black creature. However, he made it all for love (or passion) which is a red characteristic. Well, that was more than 400 years ago. Now Bob just trying to redeem himself and provides Dresden with hundreds of years of knowledge. Redemption = purification, which is white's attribute and knowledge is a blue attribute, making him a White and Blue creature.
The draw a card ability represents his knowledge while the blinking ability represents his ability to fades into and out of his physical skull. The shadow ability? Well, he cannot touch or be touched.

Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly) 1RR
Legendary Creature - Smuggler
R: Malcolm Reynolds deals 1 damage to target creature blocking or blocked by Malcolm Reynolds.
All other creatures you control gains +1/+0
Everything about Captain Mal screams red. Let see, he doesn't follow the law, he got pissed off easily, and he is a war veteran. It doesn't get any more red than that. The pinging ability? I dunno. Represents his cowardice I guess. Avoid face-to-face combat. The pump represent his leadership.

Well, enough for now. I guess all other Gamer Malaya guys are AWOL. I promise my next post will be a real news or review. (Yeah right. when was the last time I kept my promise around here)

Update: May 19, 2007 8:16 PM

eD told me to add three more cards and he will make the photoshopping. So here goes.

Theodore Bagwell (Prison Break) 1WB
Legendary Creature - Human
Tap: Destroy target tapped creature
T-Bag is a black and white creature. The black part represents his greed and selfishness. The white part is more complicated. T-Bag believes that whatever thing that he do is right (i.e self-righteous) to a certain extent. He also was a head of a group of white supremacists which represents organization, another white attribute. Why does he onl destroy tapped creature? Since most of the victims he killed or attempted to kill usually offer little resistance (all the children he killed) or caught of guard (John Abruzzi)

Mr. Ecko (Lost) 1WW
Legendary Creature - Human Priest
W,Tap: Target creature you control gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn
Mr. Ecko is a straight up white creature (righteousness, purity, redemption). Vigilance is just a way to represent his strength and the Mother of Rune ability is just a random priest-like ability.

Bender (Futurama) 2B
Legendary Creature - Robot
First Strike
Bender is indestructible
Bender is a black creature due to his selfishness, greed, and "kill all humans" nature. The first strike represents his ability to outstretch his arms, theorically attack first in a fight. The indestructibility? Well, even if you disasemble Bender, he will still be alive.
