As some of you know, and others of you no doubt have surmised, I am a big fan of comic books. In fact writing for comics is my second career choice in life. Because of this I really enjoy the creative exercises involved in making a new hero or villain. Most of the things I come up with never come to fruition in my head (or in CoH/V) and other characters I have made, or seen, have been expanded or changed to fall into my own comic book universe. My universe however is a tad . . . harsh. I am, frankly, unforgiving of my heroes. When people die they really die and they really stay that way. This leads to a rather serious mindset when it comes to my primary universe. However, I like messing around as well. Making silly ideas, crazy characters; grocery store heroes that throw artichoke hand grenades pop up almost as often as serious characters like ThresherShark and Prometheus. Often I fiddle around with silly ideas for a while and then forget all about them. This time however, things were a tad different; for some reason a recent group of heroes has stuck. I feel compelled to write them out, detail their powers, and share who they. It’s kind of weird. . .
I think part of the problem is at the same time I came up with these heroes I also figured I had to many silly ideas and was going to need to share them someplace so if I ever did make it in comics I was going to do two sets: the main world, which is a more serious minded sort of comic book universe (alla DC and Marvel) and then a second universe for Pulp Comics that takes its mindset from things like Flaming Carrot Head et all. So without further ado I would like to present you, the readers at home, with one of the main super groups of Pulp Earth:
