The Knights of Purity are an extremist uber-religious right-wing sect whose aims are to remove anything they veiw as “impure” and create a white ethnostate governed by their ultra-conservative ideals. They are fanatically against immigration from non-Anglo-Saxon or Norse majority countries, interracial marriage, LGBT and Civil rights and anything that could even be construed as socialist. A few years ago the Knights were a small fringe group, but they have grown in size and influence thanks to recent political upheaval and an emboldening of the far-right. They regularly engage in terrorist activities against groups that they feel dilute the purity of the nation (blacks, hispanics, LGBT people, liberals) and often with little fear of reprecussions, thanks to some in power being symmpathetic to their cause. They often clash with superheroes, particularly ones like Team Supreme and King Hawk and Queen Eagle who vehemently oppose the groups beliefs and methods. However, their most enduring foes are a small group of LGBT superheroes based in San Fransisco known as Pride.

If 2016 was a difficult year for Pride, then 2017 has been even worse. Last year saw growing pains and in-fighting within the team, but this year has seen external threats that could tear the team apart at the seams. With two of the teams members facing deportation and a national atmosphere that has become increasingly hostile towards the communities that the team respresents, Pride have faced even greater opposition than ever before from the people that they try to protect. Fortunately, the superhero community has thrown their support behind the team, preventing any real political or legal action being taken against the team or their members. Pride has also gained a new member, Chaundrise Young aka. Silver Surge, a politics major and lesbian with the ability to generate and control a grey coloured energy from her hands.January 22, 2018 at 3:46 pm #149244
Ok, so it’s been a few months since I posted last, but lack of inspiration and Christmas will do that. Anyway, I’ve been going back through my gallery for inspiration and I came across the Guardian from a few years ago (the one with the rainbow effect on the wings and the golden costume) and thought “damn, why didn’t I use that design for the female Golden Guardian redesign I did a few months back?” So I went and mixed the two designs up and, honestly, I prefer it. I’m not going to go back and remake the team picture because I’d have to shade this (which cba atm) and reimport all of the other characters, position them all correctly, re-export it and put the picture back together again because the group shots always end up getting cut off. It’s too much effort and like I said, can’t be assed at the moment. But hopefully I’ll have a few more coming soon.

For MM, did you mean ‘inaudibility?’ That’s a power I haven’t seen–or heard, I guess.February 16, 2018 at 2:51 pm #149715
Formerly the Super-villain duo Sugar & Spice, Emily Reed and Lucina Stamford were a formidable pairing. Specializing in bank rooberies, Emily (as Sugar) would use her emotion manipulation powers to pacify witnesses whilst Lucina (as Spice) would use her heat creation powers to break into vaults and safe boxes. Through their careers they have had run-ins with numerous heroes, such as The Angels, Outsider Investigations and the Eagle siblings. However, it was after they got in too far over their heads working a job for Overlord that put them directly in conflict with W.I.L.D that forced them to reconsider their actions. Sent to steal from the god-like Rahl during his conflict with A Division, the duo barely escaped with their lives (as was probably the intention of their benefactor) and retired from super-villainy all together, now instead running a restaurant and underground information brokerage service.
