Queen Femina Suarestellar Baroux


The space misandrist enemy of Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, by golly ! Who was a goofy, not-highbrow parody of Filipina national super-heroine Darna. This entry previously had to be altered due to US online advertising standards. So we restored it, and did its hair while we were at it. If there are problems again I'll just ditch the ads, as happens increasingly...

Black Canary

(Wu/Fletcher take)

Another profile for Black Canary (Dinah Drake). This one covers a *specific* era during the mid-2010s, when she was part of a rock band. It was fairly cool, though IMO it was Annie Wu's art that really sold it.

A scary, weird expert in a comic book version of biofeedback. Superhuman violence monster, but he's on the Frequency so he's okay. This is the last of our Warren Ellis et al's Global Frequency character profiles, as we've covered every writeup-able bit. It was a cool ride.

Man-Ape

(M'Baku) (Part 1.1)

A traditional -- and remarkably dangerous -- enemy of the Black Panther. This profile is filled with stuff about Wakandan history and politics, as M'Baku is a much much more interesting character than most people think. Only a fool underestimates the White Gorilla !

Big Wheel tactical intrusion team

(Global Frequency)

From Warren Ellis' Global Frequency story "Big Wheel", an elite ad-hoc commando tasked with an unenviable and desperate task. Neat example of high-end operatives with specialised skills and some near-future technology.

The famous Big Bad in early Street Fighter video games. Super-martial-artist, crime lord, technologist, psychic.
