Starbright

 

[edit] Starbright

The name suggests hope. It also hints at a youthful, fresh vibrant kind of energy. Starbright is certainly all of that and more.

But hope, youth, and the feeling of being invincible are sometime accompanied with disappointment. Starbright's story also contains those bits of bitterness. And yet above its emotional pain, a sweetness emerges. It rises above the sadness of the moment and becomes something more precious, long-lasting and endearing. Starbright, his closest friends, and his deepest enemy are all about to experience life's highs and lows. How they handle it will surprise and delight.

Ms. Ellie

 

[edit] Ms. Ellie

If you like robots (who doesn't?) then you need to visit Ms. Ellie's Robot Museum, just a few miles off of Interstate-25. There you will find the most complete set of robots ever collected in one location. Some of them may not be in very good shape, some are one of a kind, but they all have interesting histories. Why some of them have even battled members of Honor Guard.

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."

Samaritan has been a member of the elite superhero team Honor Guard since at least 1991. He is in a romantic relationship with Winged Victory and yes, it is complicated.

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.

This is the look that he gave to ordinary citizen, Michael Tenicek. If you are curious about why, you can read about it here...

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 neighborhoods. 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 aspirations. 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.

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...

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...
