#6 Pax Mundi

| November 5, 2010 | 0 Comments

I’m going to go ahead and post my sixth (!) entry a day early because I have KingCon tomorrow (thank God for Hero Machine). If you’re around the Brooklyn/NYC area, please come out! I have a panel at 12:30 PM called “Collaboration Counseling” with a host of guests. Should be fun!

Ok, here’s my attempt at creating a team.

Concept: The idea here is a group that is so dedicated to peace, they are ready (and more than willing) to cross the line. Think of the small American militias but on a global scale. But these aren’t just religious zealots or NRA enthusiasts… Pax Mundi is a group comprised of many nations, beliefs and people from all walks of life. The difference between them and us is they are killers with a righteous cause.  I’ll be honest, I don’t know if they’re heroes or villains. It would really depend on who they were fighting. If this were Dungeons and Dragons, they’d be “chaotic good” with the exception of being disorganized. They exist purely for the sake of world peace and creating Utopia.

Design: The two colors that dominate their uniforms are white and a light blue (powder or baby are good hues). They are comprised of different “jobs,” like GI Joe, different specialties. You have a paramilitary branch, an administrative branch (political lobbyists, etc), and, to put it bluntly, the average Joe that signs up because he/she believes in the cause.

I’d probably add an Earth logo with a peace symbol super-imposed over it (similar to this) with a lightning bolt behind it as their logo.

About the Author ()

I'm not exactly sure what I should put here, so here goes. I'm a writer, written for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, AdHouse Books, and Simon & Schuster, among others and his stories have been reprinted in other countries. Mostly concentrating on creator owned work right now, so the challenge suits me just fine. I live in Queens (Astoria/LIC), NY with my wife, Michelle, and two dogs, Kasey and Kirby. I'm not sure what else needs to be said, but I'm sure I'll keep changing this. Oh, here's something. I contribute to the Project Rooftop site. The RetroFix column was kind of my idea, so I feel like that experience will help me out here.
