An Avian Alliance

 

An Avian Alliance

While only hinted at, with no specific team name provided, a pattern is emerging of an ongoing duo, with some kind of funding model, hints of a ruling charter, all dedicated to fighting crime through the decades. Though the members may change, the structure, mission, and definition of the team remains relatively stable. The theme is avian based, the gender is female, the balance is light and dark, with names based on "sun" and "night". There seems to be a generation gap of ten years or so between members, with one a mentor, the other basically an intern in training.

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?

Kittyhawk

"She's an ordinary cat, kid. She's not part of the team, and I assure you-- she doesn't have any super-powers."

The Living Nightmare

 

The Living Nightmare

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


The Astro-Naut

 

The Astro-Naut

He is Astro City's most revered hero. His bravery inspired the grateful citizens to rename their city in his honor. Major headlines extolling his adventures are strewn about local and national print media of the depression era and beyond. Called a genius beyond all peer, a legend living well before his times, a seemingly cavalier bachelor, yet underneath a complex, quite serious individual. The final sacrifices he made for mankind at large, occurred during the heated conflicts of the Second World War and just after. His tragic story is the center point of the special 100th anniversary issue, Astro City #41.

Ambassador Telseth

 

Ambassador Telseth

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

Now that's the strange part!

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...

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?

Astra Furst

 

Astra Furst

Born to a famous family, Astra Furst, has been blessed and cursed with media attention focused on her activities from infancy, adolescence, and College graduation. Now she's a young women, balancing a very busy life. She is a member of her family's namesake group, The First Family, and also doing part time shifts with Reflex-6. Add to that her day job at the far away Gordian Knot and it is a wonder she has time for normal activities like sleep. Then too, she has always struggled with "normal"...

The many N-Forcers protecting Astro City over the years.

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 now seem more sophisticated, relying on advanced technology and arcane mystical powers sourcing from remote and ancient tribal customs.
