Born in a tiny village, the gnome who would be a hero discovered his mutant powers at puberty (age 112), eventually moving to America to fight evil in his no-nonsense way. He’s also the landlord for the League of Super Redundant Heroes, which means he has to occasionally turn his combat prowess towards collecting money from deadbeat young superheroes.
Like ya do…
Secretly average gamer girl Amber O’Malley, she has no super-powers but is remarkably agile and fast. I’m gonna be honest, I can’t quite figure out the multiple continuity strands of her appearances in a couple of different different strips (and I don’t have three years to read the whole backlog) but I’m 100% with a street-level ass-kicker, though her possible emotional/psychological issues are troubling…
3) AERO-GIRL (AND GORILLA)
Maaaybe less a webcomic than a digital comic, but I’m not splitting hairs. And don’t @ me. Jacqueline MacKenzie is the jet-pack wearing superhero of the city of Foxbay, and was the successful sidekick of her super-dad until his death. Now, with a gorilla that has dad’s powers, she will protect the city in his name!
2) NILUS, THE YOUNG GENTLEMAN AND EVERYWHERE KID
Bribed into hanging out with his step-dad’s weird friend’s nephew, Simon Morris accidentally revealed his own secret identity (and by extension, the adults’ as well) to Sergio. Things got even weirder when they met the girl called Nilus, King of Atlantis, whose sidekick is an adult hero peer of the grown-ups. Personally, I keep wondering about Sergio’s powers, as I’m certain he’s got some, but I’ve been wrong before.
1) MISS MELEE
Returning to action after an extended hiatus, Janice Jones has a new sidekick in her teenage daughter, who explains part of her long absence from super-heroics. Though lacking super-powers, she is capable of battling a pack of ninjas all on her own, and balances real life with her superhero duties admirably. She’s like Batman, only she’s a decent parent…
Thanks to Faithful Spoilerite J. Michael T for this week’s topic, Ten Webcomic Heroes! Feel free to follow along @MightyKingCobra for more Ten Things madness on Twitter or check out the full Twitter archive here! As with any set of like items, these aren’t meant to be hard and fast or absolutely complete, as I don’t read nearly enough webcomics to claim that. Either way, the comments section is Below for just such an emergency, but, as always: Please, no wagering!
