Quarrel

 

Quarrel (Jessica Darlene Taggart)

Her early years were spent working with the Street Angel and then the Omega Rangers. It was the proving grounds for her later invitation to join Honor Guard. Quarrel is the epitome of hard work leading to realized ambitions. Her story starts at a young age, daughter of an infamous and not so successful criminal...

Crackerjack

 

Crackerjack

He has a cavalier, almost careless attitude towards crime-fighting. He doesn't strike one as being strongly passionate, or motivated by some kind of mission. Yet he is somehow, almost surprisingly, one of the most effective, popular and enduring of Astro City's superheroes. So what motivates him? Why does he do what he does? Risking so much for what would seem to be just the fun of catching crooks. Is it the excitement, the attention, the sense of being center stage? Most intriguing of all, what has kept him doing it for so long?

M.P.H.

 

M.P.H.

A hero with super-speed powers. His DNA is 85% human, with a 15% overlay of something alien, from another world. He's been a member of Honor Guard since at least 1991. Detroit, Michigan is his base of operation and he is appropriately nicknamed "The Acceleration Ace of the Motor City."

Quoting Quarrel, "Yeah, yeah, big deal! Like we don't already know you're fast..."

The Streel Angel

 

The Street Angel

His career as a crime fighter began in the 1960s. He was dealing with street problems, crimes, corruption, the mob. He was light-hearted, a bit of a smart aleck, and always making jokes. In general, he was having fun while making the streets a safer place to live.

Then the Dark Age arrived. The streets got tougher, the violence escalated, and the crime-fighting got deadly serious. The Street Angel answered in kind. Even his uniform changed, reflecting an almost sinister edge to a soul whose main interest was still seeing justice served, but in a different way...

Eth

 

Eth

"I am Eth. I am of the Quiqui-a.

We are Nothing. Nobody.

Our world... it is part of what you call the Moleculands. The largest of the microscopic realms that nest below your own. I am here after far too long to turn myself in. To see justice done for my crime. For the callous and immoral death of one of your own."

Starbright

 

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.

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. 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...
