Resistor

 

Resistor

Fear generates many unpleasant side effects. Hate, genocide, xenophobia, homophobia, war. A counter force emerges and good people rise above and resist the hate mongers. An interesting side effect of that resistance manifests a new entity, appropriately called the Resistor. His, or her(depending on who is first transformed) power strengthens as more people embrace the better angels within them. The outcome seems to depend on the inner motivation and good conscious of those who embrace common justice for all. Yet fear too has a powerful influence over the weak, the ignorant, and those who have hardened their minds and made bitter their hearts. There is no guarantee which side fate's prevailing winds will favor.

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.

Ordinary Heroes

The Silver Adept

 

The Silver Adept

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 hectic life style. She is so busy being an "adept" authority on all things mystical, she even has a small staff assisting her.


Stockton and Moreton
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 Moreton. Except for color and perhaps gender, they source from 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...



Martha Sullivan

 

Martha Sullivan

"I found out I had telekinetic powers when I was fourteen. I've never been sure where I got them."

"So I decided I was going to be a super-hero. I even sewed myself a costume, kind of. I was going to call myself "MIND-OVER-MATTIE..."

Winged Victory

 

Winged Victory

One of the most controversial heroes of Astro City, Winged Victory is also one of its most powerful and well known superhero citizens. She is dedicated to championing women's rights, and prioritizes her missions to helping women first and foremost. She sponsors several shelters and schools dedicated to helping women abused or in need of special help. Although she declined invitations in the past, Winged Victory is now a member of Honor Guard.

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?

The Oubor Conspiracy

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...

Marella Cowper

Marella Cowper

She was looking for work. Something stop-gap to help with day-to-day expenses until a real job came along. So who knows. It might have been just the right tag word in her resume, or perhaps someone already working for the company marked her as a strong candidate for the position as a Call Center Specialist. Then too, they put her through a large battery of tests when she applied for the position. Endlessly long tests, and even a psych exam. She was really getting suspicious.
