Nightingale

 

Nightingale

Nightingale is rarely seen alone, either partnered in her early years with Sunshrike, and then later, with her new teammate, Sunbird. Her dual partnerships are unique. She was the younger sidekick to Sunshrike, but later, seems to be the strong mentor and motherly companion to Sunbird.

She picked up a stray cat for awhile, or did the cat pick her?

Loony Leo

 

Loony Leo

In the 1940s, Fago's Funny Features was a small animation company that created many cartoon characters, including Loony Leo. These cartoons were distributed to movie theaters and shown as shorts before the main feature film. The Loony Leo cartoons featured Leo, his rascally nephews, and Leo's romance with Lola the lioness.

Now take one real life, Astro City sinister villain named Professor Borzoi. Add a wacky invention called a Belief Ray which has many applications, including bringing imaginary movie characters to life. In this case; Loony Leo.

Tillie Armstrong

 

Tillie Armstrong

Tillie has a power than seems to transcend time, reality, the fourth wall, and probably the fourth dimension as well. She has been seen and participated in the ongoing continuity of Astro City Comics for quite some time, although chances are you didn't know it. She seems to know how unique her powers are, and yet she remains amazed and thrilled at what they can do. They still surprise her, and oddly enough, they surprise the Broken Man too.

Mermaid

 

Mermaid

She is an Oceanian. An underwater race yes, but also able to pull life giving oxygen from surface atmosphere. She had been a member of Honor Guard for many years. She now spends most of her time patrolling the oceans of earth, doing her best to keep things safe above and below the vast watery ways. It is a major goal, fortunately she is not alone in that task...

Mister Manta

 

Mister Manta

Three decades ago he was a master criminal terrorizing the seas. He disappeared after an encounter with Mermaid. What happened to him? Did he survive? And if so, how?

The Astro-Naut

 

The Astro-Naut

We know so little about him. Only snippets of commentary strewn about in Astro City Rocket Newspaper Headlines, narrative captions, letters pages commentary, along with write-ups in the original Astro City Website. He is Astro City's most revered hero. His bravery inspired the grateful citizens to rename their city in his honor. The sacrifice he made, whatever it was, and wherever it happened, occurred during the heat of the Second World War or just after. Beyond that, there is little else known. But don't worry, his story is the center point of the special anniversary issue, Astro City #41, which is now on sale...

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...

Ambassador Telseth

 

Ambassador Telseth

He's a strange and a bit peculiar alien from another planet. Being alien isn't all that strange. Not for Astro City. He docked his spacecraft, or whatever it is, on the Gaines River nearly four years ago, and it's still there. Now that's the strange part.

The Confessor

 

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 methodologies mainly consistent his predecessor.

The Blue Knight

 

The Blue Knight

"Sometimes justice comes from the barrel of a gun"

Police officer Joshua Stone, a single parent, is grieved at the lost of his only son. It becomes the motivating factor, pushing Joshua to brandish a harsher, vigilante form of justice as the Blue Knight. But is this really Joshua Stone enhancing his protection duties in the guise of a vengeful super-hero, or is this a spiritual manifestation of his murdered son's essence? We can't be sure.

Krigari

 

Krigari

Krigari was born in the Unterverse, a microscopic layer of reality smaller than Subatomia or even Quarkadia. In Krigari's homeland, combat was paramount and ubiquitous: every creature was expected to fight or die. As he fought, Krigari learned that the act of battle was a kind of nutrition that sustained and nourished him, making him grow and become stronger and smarter.

Krigari's conquests were so vast that, as he slaughtered hundreds, thousands, and millions of lifes, he grew beyond the worlds of his youth until he razed his way through a multitude of sub-atomic realms.

Now he set his sights on Earth and most especially Honor Guard.

The Living Nightmare

 

The Living Nightmare

Its history has been its namesake. It is a nightmare, living an existence that is parasitic in nature, and deriving its energy from the fear around it. Some of its history has been peaceful, emotionally controlled by a strong soul able to calm its ravenous desire for raw, cold, primitive, horrific, and unbridled fright.



Ms. Ellie

 

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.
