    Well as long as she takes it out on Fear-Master, preferably on his face.

    and the Red Group's preview is up. hits their vibe so well that my thought was "wasn't there a TV show with this general premise?"

    Yes, it looks to be Leverage meets Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    Really looking forward to this. Love when potential PC characters are "hard-wired" into the setting. (I've also liked how many NPCs in some of the books have been statted in such a way that they could be used as a starting PC of the appropriate power level; Tribal from Threat Reports comes to mind).

    The Shadow Knights sound really interesting; I may be off base, but the description sounds like we're finally getting a Freedomverse TMNT analog/ pastiche. While arguably one of the most important creations of the "Iron Age", they're also one of the hardest to come up with a pastiche for without seeming derivative.

    I will say without hesitation the Shadow Knights are a worthwhile homage, and do not read as derivative of the source material, or as mere "Captain Ersatzes"-their creator did fine work.

    Though I'm still disappointed Omega Girl didn't see fit to honor the Dingbats of Danger Street instead, *SOB*-can't Jack Kirby's WORST hero team get any love?

    All my best.
