Samaritan

[edit] Samaritan

The man who is arguably the greatest hero of the modern era is in fact not from this era at all. Samaritan was a time-traveler from the 35th century sent back to 1986 to prevent the wasteland Earth he was born into from coming about. The transit suffused him with "empyrean fire," giving him enormous physical power as well as the ability to project an "empyrean web."

As part of the global superhero community, Samaritan has been a member of the elite superhero team Honor Guard since at least 1991, and has been linked romantically to Winged Victory.

The Silver Adept

[edit] The Silver Adept

She's new and she's one of Astro City’s most powerful mystic heroes. A newspaper article among the Broken Man's odd and mysterious collection, details the heroine Silver Adept's recent move to Astro City and her assisting the Honor Guard in their battle with Mister Mystoro. But that is just part of her very busy and very hectic schedule. She has a staff assisting her. She is that busy being an adept authority on all things mystical.


Stockton and Morton
They're not cats (that's for sure) and they're not exactly dogs. But they are something cute, sensitive, friendly and while not demonstrated yet, no doubt very protective. Not sure which is Stockton and which is Morton. but except for color and perhaps gender, they are two of the same species. While their position in Silver Adept's entourage seems to be that of pets, with mystics, you can never be sure, and you should never assume...

The Hanged Man

[edit] The Hanged Man

Beware the Hanged Man's gaze. It is rare for him to acknowledge your presence, much less look upon you. A Gaze from him usually means a troubling future awaits you. Think of it perhaps as a warning that you are approaching a fateful crossroads in your life. A time of more than just change, but also one of great revelation, enlightenment or perhaps a salvation. Maybe you are nearing a crisis moment, one you may not survive.

Here is the look that he gave to ordinary citizen, Michael Tenicek. When doesn't really matter.

What does matter is that you can read about it now...

Jack-in-the-Box

[edit] Jack-in-the-Box

"Jack-in-the-Box debuted in 1964 -- or 1989, if one assumes that the current one is a different man."
--- Mr. Bridwell (Enelsian Spy)


Jack has indeed been around and about for a long time. His colorful exploits and cavalier fighting style continue to captivate and delight the citizens of Astro City. Especially the youth from the poorer, economically challenged neighbors. Jack defends their turf on a regular basis, he seems to be "one-of-them" in many ways. Most of his battles are with street thugs and the lower tier costumed villains. Those more interested in get rich schemes rather than world conquering asperations. He has a long list of adversaries, a gallery of rogues villains, equally as colorful and original as himself. But on occasions, some of the strangest characters cross his path, and the encounters can be downright bizarre.

The Confessor

[edit] The Confessor

An iconic Super-hero, with a shadowy past. The Confessor, long suspected and now confirmed as a vampire, has patrolled the streets of Astro City for decades, nearly nonstop. Thought killed and destroyed at the climax of the eNelsian alien invasion, he has nonetheless(as most vampires will do) returned from the grave to continue his nightly patrols of Astro City's dark and seedy districts. His hunting remains focused on criminals. His methodology mainly consistent...

Dame Progress

[edit] Dame Progress

One of the most incredible, absolutely amazing, stunningly beautiful battles of all time occurred on a cold winter's night over 100 years ago. Astro City was still called Romeyn Falls in those days. Along with trolley cars and horses, a rarely seen heroine by the name of Dame Progress wandered the city. Her weaponry and vehicles are finely crafted, state of the art instruments. She had a target that particular night, a target that was interfering with a special mission. The target, was a gentleman named...


Mister Cakewalk

[edit] Mister Cakewalk

Like jazz itself, this guy was cool and smooth. He too had a mission on that brisk winter's night in the early 1900s. He planned to share it. It was just a matter of timing things just right.

Astra Furst

[edit] Astra Furst

To paraphrase an old Lovin' Spoonful song "She's a big girl now!"


Born to a famous family, Astra Furst, has been blessed and cursed with media attention focused on her activities from infancy to adolescence. Now she's a young women, facing another major life passage, her College graduation. While she longs for it to be shared in a normal fashion with family and close friends, she knows that the paparazzi tabloids and the gossip shows will do all they can to expose her privacy to the world at large. It's sure to be a major event, no doubt filled with excitement and a surprise or two. But there have been many other surprises in Astra Furst's fascinating pathway to adulthood...

Roustabout

[edit] Roustabout

"HMPH! A third-rate generic outlaw hero, farting around with two-bit bank jobs."

--- Cammie(sushigirl3@acity.com)

The city of Caplinville is a small rural town located in a whole different cultural landscape from Astro City. But they do have a super-hero of their very own. One which they are mighty proud to brag about to any and all who come for a visit.
