#5- Invisi-Cop

| November 7, 2011 | 0 Comments









Invisi-Cop may or may not exist. Some theories go with the idea that “Invisi-Cop” is what he claims to be: a powerful, invisible, mute force aiding the police department that operates out of Portland, Oregon.  Others think Invisi-Cop is a powerful telekinetic mutant who sits in his home, using his powers from afar.  A third theory is that he is simply a myth created by the Portland PD. With the only credible documentation of the hero being a video tape mailed to the police department of objects being thrown across the room and voice filters on the sub-titled screen, there may never be any way to tell.

#4- Mutant Minion

| November 4, 2011 | 0 Comments

This is just one of the many mutants running wild throughout downtown Detroit.  An anonymous terrorist threat revealed that all these “mutants” work for one man.  However, at this point, he has let his identity remain a mystery.  Scientific study of these creatures reveals that they are not human, and most probably created in a lab somewhere.  They carry tech far beyond that of the U.S. military despite their seeming lack of individual intelligence.

#3- Jenny Elin

Jenny is just a normal teenaged girl.  She doesn’t have superpowers, but she’s pretty good at math.  She’s never rescued someone from a burning building, but she’s beginning to become appealing to the boys.  She can’t leap buildings in a single bound, but the Detective once saved her Grandpa from a robbery.  Jenny’s pretty normal, but special in her own way (or at least that’s what her parents tell her).

#2- The Detective

The Detective was active in the early 1940’s and struck terror into the hearts of criminals and innocents alike. The above is an early artist’s depiction of the Detective, although it was proved that The Detective was indeed a mortal man when he was gunned down on the anniversary of his first appearance at the age of 63.

#1- Weezy, The Living Target

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

A professional mercenary, no one really knows Weezy’s true identity.  Some claim that he totes a gas mask as a personal respirator to stabilize a fatal disease, others claim it’s just for show.  One thing’s for sure, though.  Weezy is one guy you don’t want to mess with.  It is said that rapper Lil’ Wayne took his nickname “Weezy F. Baby” from The Living Target in attempt to bolster his street cred in the early days.

Weezy The Living Target has been publicly active for at least 15 years, and it is possible that he has been in the business for over 25 years, as a costumed killer, operating simply as The Living Target operated in downtown L.A. in the mid-80’s. There is no confirmation that this is the same man as the current Living Target who fell in the public spotlight in spring of ’94 in an all-new costume and with much more reliance on tech.

Hello there, world. Always been a big fan of comics, books, and all forms of writing.  Not really an artist drawing-wise, but I think my creativity as a writer makes up for it.  Looking forward to the challenge, if only to continue to get my creative juices flowing.
