First thing I did was buy 8 different batman comics, ranging from old to slightly new. I wanted power to be a slightly stereotypical and out of a comic. Mostly thinking if someone got punched in the face super hard.
Toughness was probably my favorite to work on. Say any of these sounds out loud and I start to laugh. Inspired by Gertrude, an old big tough character, and pillow fights.
Speed was inspired by bullets and lightning. I feel speed is about that fast lead into you getting a beat down and not even knowing it til you wake up in the hospital.
Damage was interesting because it wasn’t about contact or the playing laying down the moves, it’s about the one who’s getting stabbed. It’s the noises one makes when he or she gets a bunch of puncture wounds.
Intelligence was the hardest one. I was distracted by the other sounds, that I originally came up with a zzzrt kind of sound, based of lazers and ‘technology.’ But these are much better and not surround by weird stars.
All colors are drawn from the badges. Sound effects are always a fun thing to work on, granted you seem crazy to everyone else when you’re whispering strange noises over and over again….
