Cast Lineup - unnamed comic by manic-pixie Cast Lineup - unnamed comic by manic-pixie


and this time it's a collaboration with the ever-rocking :iconflipsidered: who has donated characters, plot, and will be doing scripting and art along with me. the style's a kind of mush between *ToddNauck and *flipsidered but it suits the idea and characters far better than my original style. considering flip will most likely be doing the character art, i thought it best to tailor my style to hers rather than vice versa.

Basically it's a reversal of the heroic comic - a bunch of four villains start out in a small coastal city, trying to make it big in the supervillain world, and fail abysmally every time. they are thwarted by an equally useless rival gang, and hindered by the heroes who pound them into the dirt.

From left to right:

Fiend is one of the Heroes. very strong, very happy and very thick, he's in it for the helpin' people and doesn't really care that he's effectively the gimp of the hero group. fiend (c) :iconflipsidered:

Roach, aka Frankie Campbell, was an ordinary ditzy teenager until she discovered a love affair with garbage cans and an immunity to limb removal. Roach is almost unkillable and has incredible low-light senses - too bad she's such a garbage brain. she's mine.

Trigger, aka Adam Campbell, is Roach's big brother and the self-proclaimed leader of the gang. Despite his fierce ambition to be a supervillain, and his snappy lycra, his arrogance and carelessness create more disasters than the rest of the band put together. his powers are air-based, allowing him to walk on air and form it into solid objects etc.
trigger (c) :iconflipsidered:

Ivan05 is an android pulled out of the trash by roach. he doesn't dance in underpants or say 'chi' - rather, he slogs around after the gang, cleaning up their messes and acting as an all-purpose household appliance. his strict adherence to Asimov's 3 Laws means he's the worst supervillain ever, to trigger's disgust. Ivan is mine.

Plague aka Cooper Buckley is Pestilence in training, a snotty youth on his way to joining the Horsemen of the Apocalypse - but he's not immune to his own powers. this dribbling, hacking, oozing kid isn't very threatening at first, but don't let him sneeze on you. only roach is immune to his effects. Plague (c) :iconflipsidered:

Finally, Zephyr, aka Mercedes Pinkley Smith, is the perfect heroine and nemesis of Trigger. She's also got wind powers - trouble is, they're much cooler, and she can fly. snide, sassy, with a size 0 waist, it's no wonder everyone hates her. Total Mary Sue, of course, but hey. technically she's the bad guy. Zeff is (c) me.

cast not shown here: The Four Monkeys, the rival team, all of whom are (c) me except for Do No Evil, who is (c) jessie.
The Superhero to whom trigger was once apprenticed, who Zeff now serves far more adequately.

coming soon (hopefully) and this should be heaps of fun.
