Countdown to THE PYRITE WAR #11: Volta

VoltaVOLTA

Powers: Bioelectric discharge and manipulation of elecromagnetic energy.

First Appearance: The Pyrite War

Notes from the Simon Tower Archive: Ah, “Volta.” Electric powers aren’t exactly the most original in the world, but from all accounts, she used them well. Plus, she would have been handy to have around the next time one of the Antagonist’s goons knocks Simon Tower off the power grid.

PyriteWar_v2In 1939 Siegel City only had one superhero, the world’s first. When he discovered his powers, Gabriel Ruston thought he would be the second, but died on his first excursion in costume.

After Gabriel’s death, his brother David is drawn into an investigation. What if Gabriel wasn’t the second? What if there were others? What if something tragic happened to all of them?

In Siegel City, nothing is ever what it seems… even in a Golden Age.

THE PYRITE WAR launches on September 10, 2013. Prepare for battle.

Countdown to THE PYRITE WAR: #12: Aqua Vitae

AquaVitaeAQUA VITAE

Powers: Telekinetic manipulation of water.

First Appearance: The Pyrite War

Notes from the Simon Tower Archive: Considering what’s going on in the Tower these days, I thought I should look into some of the heroes of the past. Like this guy: “Aqua Vitae.” He could move water around… harden it, shape it, twist it into anything he wanted it to be. I wonder what he could have accomplished if he’d been around a little longer.

Blake’s Weekly Roundup: Ass-Kickery

Next week promises to have quite a bit for you, my friends, but this week we’ve got a few things to share…

Also, I began some tentative plans for a new and different sort of podcast project. No promises yet, but hopefully you’ll have something interesting to listen to before too long. Have a good one.

Blake’s Weekly Roundup: Sweet and Sour

The first full week of school is over, and while it was eventful, it’s not the sort of thing that lends itself easily to content creation. On the other hand, I had a few ideas this week I’m really rather excited to follow. Time will tell if anything comes from them.

Here’s what I did manage to turn out for you guys…

Blake’s weekly roundup: Wolverine meets the Puppet Master (but not really)

I went back to work this week after a nice summer of wedding planning and being eaten by a giant plant. However, that didn’t leave me with an awful lot of time to turn out content for you guys. But I still managed a little. Here’s what I did last week that’s currently available for your consumption…

  • There was a superhero movie double feature review as Kenny and I discussed The Wolverine and Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox in All New Showcase at the Movies Episode 37.
  • Reel to Reel’s “Crappy Movie Roulette” feature led to me reviewing the 1989 slasher flick Puppet Master.
  • Aaaaand… that’s about it. Sorry there wasn’t more guys, hopefully I’ll be able to turn out a little something extra this week.
