Oh, I totally get where you were going with the "legend of Kalthar" stuff. It just made me laugh because it was sooooo over-the-top evil. "Fed blood by clarion birds." Haha....I love it. I will definitely incorporate that when I write his bio. Too good not to use.

Your interpretation of the Virons is definitely valid and interesting, it's just not exactly what I had in mind. I was going off Yzz's original idea that Astro-Man had been sent to Earth to raise a human army to aid the Virons in their conquest. We didn't want to make Astro-Man too similar to Superman in origin, so I said his ancestor was alien instead of him, and extrapolated this plan would not be limited to earth. My idea was that each agent was cloned from a native of the planet they were going to be sent to with additional super-soldier genes spliced in. They were then raised and indoctrinated on Viro and sent out to other worlds to raise an army (not necessarily conquer). This would mean that there would be members of many races with the same powers as Astro-Man, and some would align with the Virons as planned, and some would want to defend the worlds they were raised on, eventually forming an "Astro-Corps." Kalthar would then be the leader of the full blooded Virons, intent on uniting worlds against his enemies who had impeded Viron conquest in the past. Those enemies, could, of course, include the Peacemakers as you described them.

But now I understand why you see the Virons as an alliance of super powerful beings from various races.

Here is a concept drawing of The Peacemakers as we've discussed. It is freely licensed to members of these boards and PDSH wiki (if someone wants to post it in an article).



I think that use of the Peacemakers team should be licensed with the following paragraph:

"The Peacemakers team and the individual characters of Flux, Outworlder, Astro-Man, Dr. Acacia and Jenny Everywhere are available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving The Peacemakers team and its corresponding characters, in order that others may use these properties as they wish. All rights reversed."

Now, clearly that isn't exactly the wording on the individual character licenses, but I think it is close enough that the original creators of these characters and other users will not be displeased.

Transmooky, are you cool with Flux being licensed in this manner?

I was going to add Cosmic Custodian to this team, but I was concerned about the licensing statement for that character being different and requiring acknowledgment of the creator. I fear two things with that. First, if each character requires acknowledgment of the author, it would require a separate paragraph for each which would be cumbersome when using a whole team of characters. You couldn't combine the paragraphs, because then you wouldn't know who created what. Second, I fear that this requirement may discourage the use of the characters, so it might be better to separate out characters with special licensing conditions. Cosmic Custodian will be receiving a profile on The Free Universe with Team Affiliation: Peacemakers (Reserve)...

Now here are my thoughts on the Peacemakers and you can use this on the wiki if you want:

"The Peacemakers are led into battle by the highly analytical and tactical mind of Astro-Man, who is also the team's physical powerhouse. While Astro-Man's abilities and tactics tend to be more defensive in nature, Outworlder is more offensive in both abilities and personality. He is the team's hot headed rogue, willing to bring the fight to the enemy when others are more cautious. This tempestuous passion has won him both the admiration and the concern of Flux (though for appearances, she maintains that he is too young for her, and calls him a boy when she's mad). Flux can be a little wild and immature herself, but she brings compassion to the team which helps to balance Outworlder's aggression and Astro-Man's tendency toward cold, hard logic. Dr. Acacia is the team's mysterious loner. Though his magic frequently saves the day, he tends to creep out his team mates a little. This may have something to do with the fact that Acaia can often see forces at work, that the others can not. Sometimes Acaia is willing to share his disturbing visions and knowledge with the team, but sometimes, he seems to prefer to secretly manipulate the team's missions to accomplish goals which are far more important than anyone else knows. Jenny Everywhere brought the team together for the first time. She advises the team and is the one who sends them on their missions in the first place. In another reality, she had a relationship with Acacia, and she understands him better than the others. She also knows enough about the big picture that she usually understands Acacia's agenda. Acacia is sometimes able to temporarily switch Jenny with alternate versions of herself who have different skills and abilities. Though she is not as combat worthy as the others, Jenny often finds herself in the middle of their battles, and she has proven herself to be highly resourceful in keeping herself and her team alive."

Sure, you can use Flux any way you like, Argo Very Happy

The whole team looks pretty good and I'm pleased that I had a small contribution towards to it.

Hundreds of years ago, the Peacemakers were an order of heroes from across the galaxy, gathered together to defend the common good. But one day the entire order were set against an enemy they could not defeat: the Virons, who sowed destruction throughout the galaxy. They came together in the battle of Ashkar Nebula, which was a catastrophic loss for both sides. For seven days the battle raged on, the bloodiest ever fought in the history of the galaxy. The corpses of its dead are still found floating in space to this day. The Viron warriors were all but destroyed and retreated to their own damaged homeworld, their powers greatly diminished. But the Peacemakers were dead almost to a man.

After the fall of the Peacemakers the galaxy fell into chaos. Its different civilizations fell into wars which grew more and more bloody and cruel.

I was checking the posts and I saw this, well a piece of what Knight Random wrote, and I was interested in this. If KR is here, would you mind if I used this piece? If KR isn't, could I use it? If not, its no biggie. I thought it would fit in a little better than what I've got for my start right now. If my wording sounds strange, its because I meant to say..use it but take out the Peacekeepers and other named references and use the bones of the idea.

PostSubject: New Drawing of The Peacemakers   Fri Oct 17, 2014 7:09 am

Hello everyone,
I have been wanting to do a drawing of the Peacemakers, and finally got around to it. It is basically my own take on Argosai'ls drawing.
Hope you'll all enjoy!



I took one small artist liberty: It was mentioned that Dr. Acacia and Jenny had a relationship in another reality, and I figured that maybe they continued in our own reality as well.
