All-Canadian Heroes 2

So I’m currently putting together the roster for the graphic novel anthology All-Canadian Comics, and have been sent a wide variety of heroes, all compelling and all very Canadian.

Here’s a sample of the ones we have so far:

[nggallery id=73]
  1. Johnny Canuck (by Bevan Thomas and Jeff Ellis): Canada’s living legend, who helped drive back the Nazis in World War II and now returns to confront modern foes.
  2. The Loon II (by Bevan Thomas and Jeff Ellis): The scourge of the Montreal underworld, a mysterious lunatic vigilante with unknown ties to the Loon of the 1940s.
  3. E. Pauline Johnson (by Shannon Campbell and Reetta Linjama): One of Canada’s first national poets, who in this universe was a prominent reporter of BC superhumans at the dawn of the 20th century.
  4. Ikniqpalagaq (by Bevan Thomas and Jeri Weaver): Half-human daughter of the North Wind, guardian of the Arctic and all its secrets.
  5. The Energy Trader (by Morgan Wolf and Cody Andreasen): Mild-mannered Torontonian transformed by an evil corporation into an energy conduit.
  6. Canada Jacques (by Bevan Thomas and Ksenia Kozhevnikova): Perhaps the first Metis gay-activist superhero.

There’s still room for more!

    I’m really into these types of characters and books I look forward to seeing what you end up producing. The Loon is a natural and Jacques looks great.

    When I started looking into these old heroes more, I came across Captain Wonder as well, pretty much a Canadian Captain Marvel. I can’t believe that no one has tried to revive him. In the unlikely event that you’re not familiar with him, look him up; he’d likely make a great addition to your cast.

    All the best,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the characters. They were a lot of fun to put together.

      Yeah, Captain Wonder is a Captain Marvel clone with a name later used for an evil male version of Wonder Woman. In our world, Captain Wonder is called “Scion” and is filled with the power of the Elder Gods to battle their ancient Manichean enemies. He’ll make a cameo in this book and if we make a sequel, you’ll probably see the modern version: a Vancouver drug-addict empowered by the Elder Gods’ lightning to be their champion in the new millennium.
