I’ve been looking through a few old folders for something I created a while back to use in a future post (and no, I haven’t found it yet; I got side-tracked!), but I came across these images I created for my Superhero Diaries stories; some have been used, but quite a lot haven’t, and it seems unlikely they will be now.
So, that said, I created the images to be shared, so why not share them here?
A warning. I know superheroes aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but they are mine… I’m sharing twenty pictures here, so if you fall asleep before the end I’ll understand.
The Elite Force of Britain were due to make a return; they may still do so, although not in this form. Above are Simba Katiya, Lycralad, Firetop, The Cloud and Psychic Sue from the EFB. Any likeness to any person is purely coincidental… I’ve always wanted to add that!
Above are five more EFB members, Bettystretch, The Diver, Invisible Charlie, Muriel Magnificent and The Crimson Songbird.
Bettystretch, above, appears to have had better days…
Lycralad has his hands full with a Scripulus, from the EFB Halloween Special back in 2018.
Above, the Witches Three (also from the Halloween Special), looking nothing like Charlie’s Angels, who they thought they were. The one in the middle is Beryl, who still crops up here and there from time to time.
Above, we have the alien Veridian and the Goddess Hera – who changes the superhero powers from time to time.
Something’s caught the attention of Firetop, Bettystretch, ParrotGirl, Lycralad and a special guest superhero, who had the name Freddy Flyboy, but was never used (to the best of my memory!)
Above, a very pensive Crimson Songbird and Bettystretch with the then US President Donna Thump.
At the same time, Lycralad and Invisible Charlie went back in time to enlist the help of the British Prime Minister, Marjory Thraxted.
And back in the then present, The Cloud and Firetop needed the current Premier, Tracy Major, to help them with the issue (whatever it was!)
Another downbeat superhero, above, this time it’s The Diver.
And here he is again, either before or after the previous image.
Matthew Mist above (an early version). Matthew currently appears in my Six Sentence Story serial, The Co-ordination of Supervillains.
And above is another early incarnation of a Co-ordinator, Bubblegum.
The lady caressing Invisible Charlie’s face above is a supervillain with hypnotic love abilities – and here she’s enlisted the help of ParrotGirl and The Crimson Songbird to do her – er – bidding.
Lycralad above, with Adam to the far left of the picture, and Luke Appleby (from the Mid Reporter newspaper) on Lycralad’s left, with another couple of characters whose names currently elude me. How bad is that? Sorry, characters.
Above an early picture with Felyne, a mask-less and make-up-less Cloud, the Early Muriel Magnificent and Sally Swift cornering a cat for some reason. Maybe it was Felyne’s pet who’d given them all the run around.
Bubblegum can be just about seen up there on the roof, with a bubblegum-controlled Psychic Sue, Invisible Charlie, Bettystretch and the Diver (just diving off the roof!) Below them is the Puddleton Protector, who cropped up from time to time.
There was a major Solar Flare which caused a lot of the superheroes’ abilities to go haywire. Lycralad’s top was reduced to threads. Luckily Adam was on hand to make sure he was alright.
And finally, Firetop has been captured by the predecessor to the Co-ordination of Supervillains, Supervillains United. I can see Matthew Mist and Bubblegum in with the mix, but here are another six characters whose names have slipped my mind. I really must do better with my characters.
