Here’s the first guy I’ve created in a while.


Detectives Emily Virgil and Tim Romero recently found themselves involved in a case where a number of meta-humans turned up dead. The only connections the victims to to have to one another were that they all had super powers and they all had a specific calling card left on their body. A black cross.

In the course of their investigation, Virgil and Romero discovered a group of religious extremists by the name of The Black Cross. The leader of this secretive group appeared to be the mysterious minister calling himself Savior. Savior and his followers in the Black Cross believed that meta-humans were an abomination and were the creations of the devil. Savior preached about how every last one of these super powered “freaks” needed to be wiped out. He stopped short of actually admitting to any of the murders however.

Eventually, Virgil and Romero tracked down the killers who had committed these crimes in the name of the Black Cross. They were ultimately unable to press charges against Savior himself though as they lacked any evidence that he had actually had anything to do with the murders. Savior is very careful to never get his own hands dirty. He instead hires a number of other individuals to do his work (or as he claims “the work of the lord”) for him. These people range from heavily trained ex military personnel all the way to average citizens who simply believe what Savior tells them.

What makes Savior even more deadly than most of the religious extremists of the world is the simple fact that he believes every last word of his own rhetoric. He’s not out to gain power or revenge. He genuinely believes that super powered individuals are evil and will go to great lengths to see them wiped out.

Savior is not only a true believer but is also remarkably charismatic and articulate. While the Black Cross is still a young organization with only a small number of members, there seems to be a growing number of people who support the group and some are concerned that it’s only a matter of time before Savior and his followers become a truly dangerous threat capable of taking on even the strongest of super humans.


“Brothers and sisters, hear me! Our world is dying. It has been poisoned by lies and deceit. We have been tricked into worshipping false idols. These blasphemers who believe themselves better than our lord have the audacity to call themselves ‘super humans’, as though they are better than you and I. They have the audacity to call themselves heroes when all I see is a world living in fear of men who can breath fire and end our lives with a flick of their wrists. They place themselves high above us and look down upon us mere mortals as though they are gods. But I am here today, brothers and sisters, to tell you that there is only one god! And these people are not his children! They are the work of Satan! Look around you, brothers and sisters. Look at the devastation wrought by these people in the name of ‘justice’. All I see is destruction. Homes and businesses ruined by yet another battle between these so called super men. They care not for the lives they ruin in their squabbles with one another. We are but ants beneath their feet. Brothers and sisters these people are not super humans. They are a disease. They are a cancer upon our fair world!…But fear not my friends. For we are the Black Cross…And we are the scalpel that shall remove this cancer and return our world to the paradise our lord intended it to be!” – Savior.
