The Protectors of the World (or known simply as The Protectors) are a super group in the same vein as The Champions, a coalition of heroes who are tasked with taking on world scale events. They have an extensive variety of different skill and power sets in order to deal with conflicts as they arise. Their missions take them from covert operations in faraway countries to fending off large scale, Earth threatening villains. When the stakes are high, it is the Protectors that are called to the scene. This super group takes cues from teams such as THE AVENGERS and THE JUSTICE LEAGUE. It is very much a 'capes and tights' organization with a modern spin.

The roster of the Protectors is composed of charter members who are permanent fixtures in the Protectors. There are in addition Honorary members and Reservists that help out when possible. Charter members are the main force of the team. Each one has the ability to access the Protectors communication hub and utilize the Barlowe Building for every day tasks. Some members even choose to live within the headquarters while others simply use it for professional purposes. Honorary and Reserve members are utilized in a more support capacity, dependent upon specialization and need on any given mission. While Reservists have access to the main communication systems, Honorary members do not. Honorary members are also not limited by their involvement to any other super group they may work for.

Please do not solicit us to join as we do NOT openly take applications. We are more of a 'we will come to you, please don't come to us' organization and constant requests to join the team detract from the fun of playing the game, to be honest. When we wish to add to our ranks we typically look on our own for more established players who fit the tone of stories we enjoy telling. Most of our team is comprised of individuals who are already comfortable with each others' play style. We also have in place a soft cap of around twenty five individual players with a 'no alts' policy in place barring Honorary status. This ensures that everyone can participate and never quite feel out of the loop of the goings on internally within the Protectors (or who is playing what character, what story lines are going on, etc etc)... as is often the case with large super groups. Players who are not part of the team may from time to time join in Protectors of the World adventures as Honorary Members, which is always a great way to meet new people and share in the fun. These events are posted on CORP from time to time for members of the public to participate in as opposed to just our own website.

History

Newprot2.jpg


The Protectors of the World were formed in 2013 when the heroine Sparrowhawk saw the need for a group of heroes which could fend off threats on a global scale. Mostly a solo crime fighter, Sparrowhawk constantly found herself drawn into conflicts with villains who necessitated an entire team to stop them. She briefly worked with the UNTIL affiliated Rising Force whose doors closed early in their inception. Taking a cue from this, she decided to strike out on her own, forming an organization of veteran heroes, up and coming rookies and heroes she had previously worked alongside. Enlisting her then partner, All-Star, she began the arduous task of reviewing individuals that would mesh well both personality and power wise. Some of the early members included African Violet from South Africa, Katsuo from Japan, the robotic C.O.P. from America, Canadian legend Thundrax and even former teenage ingenue Dobergirl. Using a sizable amount of financial assets and with the backing of UNTIL, she set up their primary headquarters in Millennium City's famous downtown Barlowe Building. Renovating and occupying its uppermost ten floors, the team was outfitted with a state of the art base of operations and a place to call home.

The first year of the Protectors was extremely busy and quickly tested the mettle of the newly formed group. They were taken to task before their headquarters were even completed and the roster finalized by the 175, which was the number of secret identities compromised during an attack on PRIMUS. This was followed up by battling everything from African gods to World War 2 villains with a score to settle against old foes. The Protectors earned a sterling reputation for these successes. Hailed as heroes across the globe, UNTIL ensured the Protectors were on the first lines of defense when situations would arise. New heroes continued to join their ranks as their team expanded, such as the well known heroine Razira and the mystical aquatic hero Seadragon.

PotW20152.png

The beginning of 2014 was marred by the apparent betrayal of the team's own leader, Sparrowhawk. In actuality she was captured, tortured and outfitted with a neural inhibitor which effectively controlled her actions against her will by members of the Apotheosis Project, an organization established to ridding the world of super human influence. They used to her to attempt to turn public opinion against super powered beings under the guise of an anti meta heroine named Virago. After an assault in which Sparrowhawk single handedly defeated most of the group, the Protectors were in in a state of shock and tried to quickly rebound. Problems further intensified as All-Star, taking on leadership of the team, suggested they kill Sparrowhawk, not aware of her current state. This created a rift within the Protectors, causing Thundrax to question the morality of All-Star's methods and resulted in him leaving the team. There were other challenges as well. From Canadian Fist losing her powers and going on a mission to restore them to discovering a gene bomb that could readily kill off most of the Earth's super beings, the Protectors persevered. Founding member Black Sigil sacrificed himself to save the lives of the Protectors and Xanthe was taken out of commission by an attack from the villain Cassowary. After Sparrowhawk freed herself from the mental thrall she was under, she joined her friends just in time as a monster known as Leviathan attempted to destroy Millennium City. The collected forces of Protectors both charter and honorary faced him down, and both he and the Apotheosis Project were toppled, though at a great cost.

The events of the last few months being known as The Eugenics War, the Protectors struggled to stay together as internal strife and distrust ate at them. All-Star took a more proactive role in leadership while Sparrowhawk took it upon herself to bring the rest of the Apotheosis Project to justice. Katsuo upgraded his armor as Canadian Fist took the new identity of Artifist. The Barlowe Building was renovated and upgraded even further after Leviathan's attack. The alien heroine Voreen was brought into the fold as a new member, helping to revitalize the sense of camaraderie just as Sparrowhawk returned to the team as active leader. They fought such enemies as the Children of Prajna and stopped a multidimensional device from tearing apart time and space itself.

Months later All-Star was reportedly killed fighting an old adversary of his with the aftershocks leading to Sparrowhawk taking an unannounced extended leave from the team. The Protectors, losing both their main driving forces, focused less on the Protectors and several of their members went to other endeavors as the Barlowe Building grew silent. It was months later when Sparrowhawk chose to return, determined to re invigorate the team and rally them once more. The first order of business was to add new blood to their ranks. Members were inducted such as veteran powerhouse The Peacemaker, second generation hero Stonemason, the tempestuous aquatic heroine Fathom and the effervescent Cosmic Glory. Zwein found himself working alongside both the Protectors as well as temporarily leading a group of Westside heroes as Honorary Protectors. The mantle of Field Leader was passed to Razira in recognition of her accomplishments and dedication to the team, moving them into a new era.

Their timing could not have been better. The threats faced by the team seemed to grow exponentially. The cosmic cult known as the Almagest and the return of the bizarre Kaptain Komics were just two of their new battles. The Protectors clamored to save the world and civilization from being destroyed by a terraforming, near planet sized space ship and then took on the responsibility of keeping said planet safe as it harbored millions of life forms aboard. Razira became both its protector and custodian. Cosmic Glory dealt with graduation and the move into adulthood only to find her secret identity compromised. Thundrax, the Canadian hero who had left the team the previous year, was seemingly killed and not only returned to life but to the Protectors as well. They have found themselves working undercover to retrieve DNA samples of super powered beings to dealing with the evil designs of the villainous Captain Conquest. New recruits such as hacktivist turned hero Tesseract, gunsmith Armory and war veteran Captain Adamant joined the fold.

An attack which crippled and nearly destroyed Millennium City, carried out by a super- charged vampire named Adrian Arkwright, was fended off by the Protectors. While successful, the Barlowe Building's upper floors were severely compromised. This was compounded by an assault from an entity called Husk resulted in further destruction of the team's headquarters, which resulted in a complete overhaul and upgrade of its systems when it was rebuilt. Imp joined the Protectors just as cyber villain M.E.K.K.A. attempted to take control of the planetoid spaceship Avestus, which Razira was guardian of. A reality shaping relic called the God's Eye was uncovered, only to find itself in the hands of evil... and which led to Sparrowhawk taking it upon herself to recover. Kara McIlroy's father was killed in action as the Protectors worked alongside the Freelancers, resulting in the young heroine taking up his name as Keioseth II.

The Protector's membership continued to shift, with a few individuals leaving the ranks of the team as newer members introduced themselves to the experience of global crime fighting. War Hawk joined heroes like South Africa's Jinn and Germany's Fahrenheit in taking up membership to espouse the tradition of those joining from countries about the world. VIPER, the vicious and diabolical Dr. Kaufmann and even troubles from Peacemaker's past quickly reared their heads. Cosmic Glory found herself finally tying the knot with her long time love, Brad, in front of her fellow friends and allies alongside a host of other heroes. Razira continued to play 'Mother Wolf' by ensuring the Protectors' morale continued to flourish even in darker times.

The Protectors continue to be at the forefront of the crime fighting teams in the world, ready to rally together against any crisis which might rear its head.

The Barlowe Building
PROTBARLOWE.png
POTWglobelogo.png



The Barlowe Building serves as the current headquarters for The Protectors. The building, primarily an executive hotel, has had its uppermost ten stories redesigned and outfitted to accommodate the super team's needs. This has transformed the building into one of the most popular landmarks in the country (as well as notoriously difficult to actually access for what was a public establishment). The headquarters is run by an artificial intelligence known as Mother, a more intuitive version of the program designed by Sparrowhawk for herself to aid in crime fighting which was co-created by UNTIL contractor Simon Reynolds. Mother handles every day tasks as well as more specialized functions, such as controlling PORTAL (see below). Security, currently overseen by Peacemaker, is extremely tight and incredibly advanced and with good reason given the tenants are a world renowned crime fighting unit.

The upper floors contain the following:

Several Protectors (Aura, Tesseract, Captain Adamant, Thundrax and Sparrowhawk) ready for action in front of their main headquarters, the Barlowe Building, while the Valravn flies overhead.
  • Living Quarters. The residential facilities of the Protectors is composed of twenty four 900 square foot residential suites. These are for reserved for the active members of the Protectors of the World and constitute two of the lower floors that the Protectors utilize at the Barlowe (the lowest floor actually is home to their security network). Some members use these as full time living quarters; others are used intermittently by certain members when in town or merely as a home away from home, decorated as they wish. Certain rooms are tailored towards an individual's specific needs. Former member Seadragon, for example, once had a large water tank in his personal quarters.
  • Common Room. Wide and expansive, the Protectors of the World common room possesses a flat-screen satellite television, numerous sofas and chairs, a warm fireplace and access to a variety of media from movies to video games. With a direct link to the dining area, it acts as the main social hub for the Protectors of the World when they're on and off duty. This is usually the first place recruits are shown courtesy of Razira, whose job it is to act as mentor to those new to the team.
  • Dining Area. With a fully stocked kitchen with access to a wide variety of supplies and a table large enough to accommodate most of the team, the dining area is one of the main social hubs for Protectors spending time at the Barlowe Building. Cosmic Glory can often be found within, trying out new culinary techniques to the delight of most of the team.
  • Gymnasium. Outfitted with all the finest exercise equipment and facilities to help the Protectors tune their bodies and minds, the gymnasium of the Barlowe Building caters to humans, meta-humans and extraterrestrials looking to get a good work out. With an Olympic-size pool, a sauna and studios for acrobatics and dance, the gymnasium has everything you could need to stay in shape -- and then some. It is not uncommon in the gymnasium to find Razira or Tesseract in the pool doing laps while Captain Adamant is lifting weights and Wildeye is hitting the track.
  • Rec Room. Much like the common room, the rec room of the Barlowe Building was made with socialization and easy entertainment in mind. With a fully-stocked bar, a pool table, a media center, an arcade, a state of the art sound system and a library of books and files, the Protectors are free to kick back, relax and enjoy their free time in luxury. Jinn often makes himself at home here for hours (or days) at a time.
  • Crime Lab. With enough top of the line equipment to put the FBI to shame, the crime lab offers the Protectors ready access to all the fixings they need to tend to the investigative side of their work, be it autopsies, crime scene investigation or substance analysis. Though, for all intents and purposes, it can very well act as a regular lab for more scientific Protectors, calling it the 'crime lab' just makes it sound cooler.
  • Medical Center. Attached to the crime lab, the Barlowe Building's medical center is a facility equipped to deal with the medical emergencies of even the most esoteric members of the team. With medical equipment and supplies suited to human and alien biology and flash-freeze storage for the dead and the unconscious, it serves the Protectors well when things take a turn for the worse. The Medical Center is overseen by the Mother AI.
  • Mystics' Room. An area slightly off the crime lab and medical center, this room houses a number of trinkets and books which benefit the more mystically inclined Protectors and is equipped with supplies which would benefit any mystic from an alchemist to a dimensional wayfarer. It has been specially warded against intrusion and scrying, safeguarding it against any particularly sneaky magic-types. Mostly used by Fahrenheit.
  • Tech Room. An area beside the Mystics' Room that serves as a hub to repair, creative or investigate items of technological origin. Various schematics are available of numerous devices villains have created and used from UNTIL files. Prototypes and other interesting things are about the room in various phases of construction. A former service bay for C.O.P. was transformed into a R&D area for Peacemaker which he now employs for the entire team with assistance from Wildeye.
  • Counseling Office. With the obvious stress entailed by a life full of combat and high stakes, a counseling office has been set up in the Barlowe Building This provides a safe location for the Protectors to vent their worries, frustrations and hang-ups to the team's resident counselor, Aura.
  • Briefing Room. A moderate circular room containing a large table with a holographic display in the center of it, the briefing room acts as the main rendezvous point for the Protectors before and after missions. Here, they make ready use of their access to a relay of worldwide news and events to brief and debrief on upcoming missions, organize strategies and assign roles. Lockers containing primary and spare costumes/gear allow the Protectors to suit up before charging in to battle.
  • Training Room. A hi-tech facility which makes use of a combination of hard-light, holographic projections and more traditional mechanical systems, the training room is outfitted with advanced combat simulation technology which allows it to mimic the dangers and intricacies of actual combat scenarios withing a .001 margin of error. From the control tower, scenarios can be programmed and fine-tuned via a user friendly command interface overseen by the Mother AI and data from the the Protectors' various field missions and training sessions can be analyzed and implemented to keep things challenging. Captain Adamant has been placed in charge with training the team and using this room to monitor their progress.
  • Hangar. An expansive hangar which stores the Valravn and the various vehicles the individual Protectors regularly make use of. Access to a large supply of tools needed to maintain said vehicles is also a given.
  • Mission Control. Usually manned by Sparrowhawk (with assistance from Tesseract given her computer expertise), the mission control room acts as the communications and observation hub for the Protectors of the World. From here, all the technological facilities of the Barlowe Building can be controlled and scrutinized and access to satellite transmissions allows the Protectors to maintain visual and audio coverage across the world via the Mother system. When an outside party wishes to contact the Protectors directly, this is where they're usually put through to.
  • PORTAL, or Photonic Operated Remote Teleportation Arrival Link. The PORTAL system is a large, arch like device located off the main meeting room. Maintained and operated by the Mother program and activated by voice command, Portal uses orbital way-points keyed to the Protectors of the World's holo-badges to allow for instantaneous teleportation to most locations around the world. While once only activated to main cities, the system now utilizes a satellite link up that only needs coordinates to ensure safe travel. The PORTAL system can therefore grant the Protectors the ability to respond almost instantly to the global threats they often find themselves facing. Despite its efficiency, however, the PORTAL system is both expensive to use and prone to causing nausea and dizziness in some. As such, the Valravn is the more economic choice when time isn't of strict importance.
  • Defensive and Offensive Systems. Due to its very public location and the value of many of its interior facilities, the Barlowe Building is outfitted with a number of offensive and defensive countermeasures and apparatus to help keep the enemy out (or, in some cases, in). With powerful weaponry and defensive systems courtesy of both some of the most brilliant minds on Earth and some even not of this Earth, the Barlowe Building is more than capable of holding its own. All members have been trained in its use.
  • Trophy Room. A stretching hall full of glass cases and displays, the trophy room is home to the collection of trophies, souvenirs and gifts the Protectors have received during their missions. With security measures put in place for the more dangerous items, the trophy room offers a nostalgic walk down memory lane for any Protectors in the mood.

In addition to the Barlowe Building, there are nine small underground bunkers (labelled 'Nests') around the world for the Protectors to utilize as off site headquarters for the team. These allow the team to be stationed almost anywhere at any time. Each one is outfitted with a meeting room, weapons bay, computer system and small living quarters complete with an eight bed dorm. They are situated in every continent and can be accessed independently or through the PORTAL system. Each Nest is maintained primarily through the Mother AI system like the Barlowe Building has. Two of them contain hangers with a back up Valravn. Nests include: Canada, Argentina, Algeria, South Africa, Russia, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan and Antarctica.


Girls Gone Wild. African Violet, Razira, Laser Knight, Sparrowhawk and Voreen.



The Valravn
PROTVAL.png
POTWglobelogo.png



Valravn2potw.png


Brampotwtransparent.png

The VALRAVN is the Protectors' personal state of the art jet and primary mode of transportation when PORTAL is not necessary or available. Initially designed on a prototype created by Alex Harper and her friend Simon Reynolds, the teams jet was originally dubbed the Peacekeeper by All-Star. This was used by the Protectors until its destruction during their mission in Savage Beginnings, Finale. It was then completely redesigned from the ground up by Sparrowhawk who also brought Protectors Zelara and Voreen aboard by using their interplanetary expertise. They integrated various alien tech in its systems, boosting it's weaponry and defense capabilities. All the Protectors are trained in its basic use though it has a built in user intuitive interface to aid those whose experience in flying may be a little less informed. It is responsive to all current charter and honorary members of the team. Typically the Valravn is piloted by Razira, Captain Adamant, War Hawk or Sparrowhawk. While there is only one Valravn located at any one time within the Barlowe Building's hangar, there are several others situated throughout the world in Nest bunkers.

Capabilities include:

  • VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) capability
  • Can operate in and withstand deep ocean pressures; cabin has been built to regulate decompression
  • Has a flight speed of 4,200 mph inside the Earth's atmosphere (slightly over mach 6)
  • Can be fitted for outer space travel, reaching faster than light speed outside of Earth's orbit.
  • Can fit comfortably a flight crew of two and six passengers
  • Kendrium armored plating along the hull for maximized natural defenses
  • Nanite infused repair system to minimize structural damage and possible decompression
  • Repulsor projectors: Enabling a form of stasis to immobilize items and people
  • Gadroon modified force field system
  • Repeating pulse lasers on its sides
  • Air to Air and Air to Surface missile systems ("Kunai Missiles", x6)
  • Magnetized under hull
  • Plasma Cannon on its underside
  • Kendrium Alloy Cable/ Winch
  • Worldwide satellite interface for tracking, coordinating and relay
  • Screechers: Sonic wave devices capable of emitting several types of sound to disable and incapacitate large groups
  • Holographic and stealth capability
  • In the interior of the ship is a number of UNTIL issued weaponry at the Protectors' disposal
  • PORTAL enabled technology, allowing it to open gateways between most large cities

Razira, unlike all of the others of the Protectors' team, has her past and civilian life buried behind layers of 'need to know'. What little she has said include that she was born in Florida more than 30 years ago, moved to Millennium City to get away from it all, gained a college degree in Business Management, and became a barista at the main coffee chain there...at least until she was kidnapped, genetically altered, and eventually became the Hero she is today - a werewolf with the powers of oxygen based temperature control. Now a five year veteran of the heroic lifestyle, she was approached out of the blue by Sparrowhawk, inviting her to the Protectors. Despite being a lone wolf type through her former job at UNTIL, something deep down told her to accept. Now she finds herself as a Field Leader hoping she can keep the team in one piece through their many dangerous adventures across the globe and beyond.

ARMORY

"A gun is a tool. A tool I'm very good at using to solve problems."

Name: Mike Malcon
Abilities: Olympic-Level Marksman, Extensive Munitions Knowledge and Experience, Response Initiative Training
Rank: Member

Mike Malcon, known within the United States Defense Department and the hero community as Armory, is a man of many skills. These skills are all dedicated to crafting him into a modern-age warrior of gun and mind.

Working as a 'Problem-Solver' for the Response Initiative within the government, Mike has lead a long career of field-work. He's traveled across the world, and been involved in hindering the actions of various organizations. Well-trained and experienced, combined with the arsenal of a small country, all fuse to make a powerful and efficient fighter.

Originally dipping his toes into the world of heroics through liaison with PRIMUS, Mike has come to view his heroic activities as merely an extension of his job with the government. While still moderately low-key in the reputation factors of the heroic world, his foray into joining up with the Protectors of the World is slowly causing his reputation to rise. He has yet to decide if this is a good thing.

ATOMAC

"Why don't you pick on someone my size for a change?"

Name: Ralph Matheson
Abilities: Quantum Energy Manipulation (Giant Growth/Shrinking, Density and Mass Manipulation, limited Force Projection)
Rank: Recruit

The son of an accomplished physicist and engineer, Ralph gained his abilities as a result of accidentally mishandling one of his father's inventions-- at the time believed to only be a model of the device-- during a convention photo opportunity. As his finger slipped over the on switch for a split second, he was blasted with an empowering jolt of quantum force. Encouraged by his father to put his newfound powers to use for the greater good, Ralph invented his heroic persona from his aptitude at altering his size at will.
Atomac previously counted himself as a staunch member of the Young Sentinels for several years. However, his diligent work ethic caused him to distance himself from his easier-going allies as time went on. As several of his friends became fully-invested Sentinels, Atomac sought his own "graduation" to the big leagues-- which led him to ask for the advice and patronage of Thundrax, himself an ex-Sentinel and sometime sparring partner and mentor to the junior hero.

BLUE CYCLONE

"If I was -really- angry, I'd start with your fingers."

Name: Alexis Talia Monroe
Abilities: Weather control, Energy Projection and Manipulation, Superspeed
Rank: Member

A New Vigil alumni, Blue Freedom struck out on her own when the team fell into inactivity. During her time working independently from a team, she managed to harness her rage and turn it into a clear focus for her crime-fighting endeavors. This allowed her to start taking on greater challenges and push her abilities to their limits and beyond. It also allowed her to not worry about property damage she didn't cause. For a time, Blue Cyclone also was a member of the Progeny, another teen group. Differences in moral attitudes in relation to crime fighting left her to reconsider her membership, leading to her decision to exit the group. She has since taken up the fight against crime alongside the Protectors.

CHIVALRY

"The Shining Knight always Slays the Dragon"

Name: James Richardson
Abilities: Galahad Powered Armor, Golden Sword
Rank: Member

The persona James adopts as Chivalry is, while not exactly different from his normal personality, far more extroverted. Chivalry is loud, boisterous and straight-forward. He's well known, especially in the Millennium City area, as a resolutely heroic figure. He's taken down more than one giant monster and has racked up a good number of villains defeated. Many heroes remark on his thickly put-on Early Modern English dialect, sometimes leading to confusion, but usually leading to amusement.

"I would consider surrender. You can neither fight nor outrun wind and rain."

Name: Kaspar von Schneider
Abilities: Weather Manipulation, Magical Knowledge
Rank: Member

Born into an old family of German nobles, Fahrenheit has a heavy burden to carry. For centuries his family has used its natural affinity for magic to help, protect and serve the greater good. Honor, honesty, kindness and awareness of etiquette and reputation have been the governing principles of the von Schneider family for over 600 years and Fahrenheit is working even harder at upholding them since the last prominent member of his family - his grandfather - fought on the side of the Nazis in WW2, believing to be serving the interests of the German people. Determined to make up for his grandfather's mistake and to make the von Schneider family known as a force of good again, Fahrenheit uses his inherent talents for magic and weather manipulation in the way most appropriate for modern times: being a superhero.

JINN

"C'mon, who doesn't like a good redemption story?"

Name: Aron Johnson
Abilities: Air Manipulation, Cantrips, Flight, Smoke Mimicry
Rank: Member

Aron Johnson, now also known as Jinn, is a former street kid who unintentionally gained the powers of the air jinn. It would almost be a modern retelling of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, were it not for the fact that in this story the protagonist ended up actually becoming the genie.

  • Money Is Power - Step 1: We prevent something bad from happening!: The threat of the Golden Dragon destroying not only Millenium City but possibly wrecking the economy of the US or even the whole world still looms. The Protectors have to ally with the shady Doctor and his Men in White once again to prevent that from happening. The first step was to protect the construction site of a high-tech oil processing facility in the icy waters of the North Atlantic from the Golden Dragon's troops. Multinational corporations and hedge funds had invested into the completion of this facility and the financial damage its destruction would have wrought on the world economy would have made it easy for the Golden Dragon to buy up several key assets all over the world. The Protectors along with several squads of Men in White and their field commander Tamara 'Cross' Aristopoulos managed to defend the facility from the Golden Dragon's attack. Missile attacks, teleporting cyborg shocktroops and finally the Golden Dragon's chief scientist Kanghui in his giant Kaiju battlesuit attacked the facility, but in the end the Protectors and their unlikely allies were able to successfully defend it. (-Featuring: African Violet, Fathom, Imp and guest-starring Robogirl)
  • Money Is Power - Step 2: We make something bad happen!: With the Golden Dragon's attack on the oil facility prevented, the Protectors have bought themselves some time to strike back! Now it is vital to weaken the Golden Dragon by cutting him off from his money. The Doctor had commissioned the notorious hacker Cybermind to write a virus which would do exactly that if uploaded to the Wall Street main servers; it will cut the Golden Dragon's access to his bank accounts, hedge funds and stocks for a few hours. Not only will this prevent him from using his immense wealth, it would also weaken the magical source of his superpowers: a blessing by Cai Shen, the Chinese god of wealth one of his ancestors received generations ago. It granted him ever-increasing superpowers the richer he was. The Protectors along with the Doctor's personal assistant Janine 'Red' Guiliani were the ones to infiltrate Wall Street. After a nerve-wrecking journey over Manhattan's rooftops they managed to upload the virus only for everything to go south: Cybermind wanted revenge on the Doctor for some slight in the past. His virus mistook the Protectors for the Doctor and captured them in a virtual reality bubble. They had to fight through a range of weaponized internet memes in a twisted virtual gauntlet to escape Cybermind's prison and make the virus work properly. (-Featuring: Keioseth II and The Peacemaker)
  • Money Is Power - Step 3: Something exciting happens!: With his plans thwarted and his funds cut off, it was time to confront the Golden Dragon himself in his palace in the Taihang mountain range in China. The Doctor had arranged to have the Protectors and his men smuggled into China, ever cautious of Chinese authorities, many of which were in the Golden Dragon's pocket. Arriving at his mansion, the Men in White distracted his guards by causing trouble in the nearby town, allowing the Protectors to infiltrate. It didn't take them long to find the Golden Dragon. Even in his weakened state, his wealth and thus power were still vast and the battle pushed the Protectors to their limit. When suddenly explosions destroyed a large part of his mansion, the Golden Dragon was unable to continue the battle and mysteriously fell to his death. Confused the Protectors and the Doctor searched for the cause of the explosions and the Golden Dragon's sudden demise. They found it in the form of Alice Preston, the Golden Dragon's lover. She had planted the explosives and stolen the source of the Golden Dragon's power: an ancient Chinese coin which contained the blessing of Cai Shen. According to the Doctor, Alice Preston was most likely behind the Golden Dragon's madness and desire to destroy Millennium City due to her own obsession with destroying it. Now she had to be stopped! But how did the Doctor know about that...? (-Featuring: Razira, War Hawk and Voreen)

  • Money Is Power - Step 4: Profit!: The Protectors and the Doctor managed to barely escape China undetected and track down Alice Preston in Vladivostok, Russia. She was preparing to board a flight to the US to exact her revenge as soon as Cybermind's virus would lose its effectiveness and she would be the rightful heir to all of the Golden Dragon's fortune and thus power. Additionally the distrust between the Protectors and the Doctor grew as they were unsure of his motives. They split up to find Alice Preston faster: The Men in White searched the city, the Protectors the airport. The Protectors found the girl first and made a terrible discovery as they cornered her. Not only had she swallowed the coin, she also revealed that she had been the Golden Dragon's prisoner for years after he had hired the Doctor to kill her father Cornelius Preston - a former superhero and rich Millennium City businessman - and kidnap her. When the Doctor used the Protectors to clean up loose ends, she took the chance to kill her tormentor and escape with the coin. As the Protectors prepared to take the treachorous Doctor in however, the truth finally came out: Alice Preston had plotted her father's murder together with the Golden Dragon and hired the Doctor to kill him and 'kidnap' her. When she didn't inherit her father's fortune and the Golden Dragon lost interest in her, her hatred for Millennium City grew and she convinced him of the whole mad plan to destroy it! As she prepared to escape the Protectors and the Doctor, her hate and greed caused the magic coin she swallowed to go out of control and transform her into a horrific golden demon. The Protectors and the Doctor fought a gruelling battle against the transformed femme fatale on the airfield of the airport and in the end managed to defeat her and put an end to this twisted conspiracy, but the Doctor and his Men in White managed to escape in the chaos of the battle.

However it turns out to be a trap; Conner Blackwood, Tesseract's old nemesis who now calls himself Rift had hired the Doctor to free him and get revenge on the Protectors and Tesseract in particular; she is captured by the two villains and forced to watch while her friends are dosed with the Doctor's new Nightmare formula, a powerful hallucinogenic drug. The Protectors must fight through harrowing nightmares of vampiric Men in White, inspired by the Arkwright crisis one year ago.

  • Why did it have to be VIPER? - Part 1: The Saint and the Snake: When called to investigate VIPER activity in Northern Ireland, the Protectors find themselves confronted with the mysterious Snakehead, insane leader of a splinter group within VIPER who worship snakes in a cult-like manner. Snakehead and his followers have the vague goal of 'bringing paradise to Earth' which involves snakes somehow and demands for the desecration of the grave of Saint Patrick, who - according to folklore - once banished all snakes from Ireland. Despite their doubts about the truth behind the legend, the Protectors confront Snakehead at the cemetery of the town Downpatrick, where the saint is supposedly buried. Fahrenheit and Cosmic Glory quickly realize that there is indeed some sort of magic at work here, but are unable to determine its nature. After battling Snakehead's followers and two Serpent Mages transformed into giant snakes, they confront Snakehead himself and War Hawk manages to kill him before he can desecrate the grave. (-Featuring: The Peacemaker, Captain Adamant, War Hawk, Cosmic Glory, and Fahrenheit)


Protectors Missions, 121-135


MISSIONS 121-135


  • Why Did It Have To Be VIPER? - Part 2: Kaiju Combat!: - After the incident in Northern Ireland the Protectors manage to track the last remains of Snakehead's cult to Australia. Their contact in Sydney is Erin Townsend, better known as the superheroine Reliquary, collector of ancient artifacts and magical paraphernalia and acquaintance to Fahrenheit's family. Upon reaching Port Jackson in Sydney, the Protectors are immediately confronted with two kaiju-sized creatures - a gigantic cobra and a mutated jellyfish - battling in the harbor. Assuming the snake to belong to Snakehead's cult the Protectors attack it first, only to be blindsided by the other creature. Fortunately Reliquary soon appeared on the scene and clarified that the cobra was indeed Nehushtan, one of her artifacts/familiars which she claimed to be an Aaron's Rod. Together the Protectors and Reliquary defeated the mutated jellyfish and Reliquary - however furious at the Protectors for hurting her familiar - promised to help them find the cultists. (- Featuring: Cosmic Glory, Jinn, War Hawk, Fahrenheit and guest-starring Cait Sith of the Progeny)

  • Why Did It Have To Be VIPER? - Part 3: Venom and Curses: - One day after the battle at Port Jackson the Protectors are to meet Reliquary at the outskirts of Sydney where she lost the cultists' trail. When they arrive at the meeting point there is no sign of Reliquary and upon investigating they find the cult's temporary hideout, albeit abandoned. They also find Reliquary there who had been ambushed by the cultists, had her familiar Nehushtan taken from her and had a strange curse placed on her which behaved more like a venom than magic. Fahrenheit agreed to stay behind to get her to a hospital and inform an expert on curses while the rest of the team pursued the cult into the Outback. After tracking the cultists for some time they found them conducting a strange ritual in a canyon; the two Serpent Mages were strapping on suicide vests and apparently preparing to sacrifice themselves to a sleeping Nehushtan. When the Protectors confronted the cultists, the Serpent Mages shifted into their giant snake forms again to fight back. The battle was a short affair though; upon waking up Nehushtan simply swallowed the two shapeshifting mages but paid for it with his life when they detonated the suicide vests inside him. More confused than ever before the Protectors returned to Sydney only to find out that Reliquary had escaped from the hospital Fahrenheit had brought her too, apparently possessed by some dark curse... (- Featuring: Cosmic Glory, Jinn, War Hawk, Fahrenheit and guest-starring Cait Sith of the Progeny)
  • Red Phase I: In Captain Adamant's first group training session with the Protectors, he subjects the team to a series of challenges in a holographic Sakura Park! The objective? Simple: cross from one end of the park, to the other. The catch? The team is forbidden from using any means of travel besides their feet! What appears to be the proverbial "walk in the park" becomes a march through hostile territory, taking on living lion statues, ambush explosives, and a team of Albanian speaking snipers! The team almost succeeds, but Captain Adamant ends the session before they all make the finish line. Pushed to their limits, many members of the team lose their cool, and after a litany of tactical errors and a near-fatal shot, the team comes face to face with harsh realities and their need to improve as a unit and as individuals... (- Featuring: Captain Adamant, Extractor, Jinn, Peacemaker, and Tesseract)
  • Chrome Clash: - Paranoia, missteps, and a case of mistaken identity pit the Peacemaker and Strong Suit against each other. When their respective teams arrive to help stop the combat, a small skirmish occurs. The Peacemaker believed Strong Suit was attempting to assassinate the imprisoned Leonardo Toledo, an employee of his whom he'd been tricked into framing as the suspect in a terrorist attack. Cooler heads prevail, as Strong Suit accidentally reveals herself as Toledo's daughter to the Peacemaker, convincing him that she's not allied with the villains orchestrating the persecution of her father. With tension eliminated, the Peacemaker and Strong Suit ask the heroes present to help them capture those responsible for the entire scenario. Part of the Metallurgy arc. (- Featuring: Fahrenheit, Razira, and Jinn, plus Faith, HexBane, and Ace of The Progeny)
  • Face The Future: Sparrowhawk assembles the Protectors together when an old friend of hers, Psion, has her daughter abducted. The group are faced with the revelation that the young girl they must save may in fact be destined to become one of the world's greatest threats. They find themselves fighting two individuals from the future who are excising this girl from all realities, and must rescue her before she becomes their next victim. It poses the question, however: does the sacrifice of one outweigh the possibility of the end of everything as you know it? (- Featuring: War Hawk, Wolfgirl, Razira, Cosmic Glory, Sparrowhawk and Honorary Protector Psion)
  • Bring In The Bioborgs: When the small fledgling country of Kradovia is attacked by bipedal animals wielding unusual gadgets and super powers, only one team can stop them: THE PROTECTORS. However, with everything from time travelling kangaroos to optical laser beam wielding bears, the team may find things are not quite as easy as they hoped! (-Featuring: Razira, Thundrax, Sparrowhawk and Tesseract)
  • The Spider's Web Part 1: Xochimilco: Two individuals with ties to Fahrenheit and the Trismegistus Council contact the Protectors, seeking assistance in tracking down the whereabouts of a sorceress by the name of Salei, who has come into the possession of a mask with ties to the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan. It has granted her a great measure of power, and she seems bent on 'creating a new age.' The team sends two groups, one of which is sent to a museum in Xochimilco, Mexico. Monsignor Michael Mendoza, accompanied by a team of Protectors and Honorary Protectors, arrive at the museum, only to find that someone has beaten them to the location. The team discovers that the museum is actually a front for cultists who are in the business of trafficking ancient artifacts of power. After a scuffle with some of Salei's spiders, two cultists are interrogated. It seems that Salei stole an item called the Brazier of Tlaloc, which can be used to gather and send out a great deal of power. So the question is, what exactly does she intend to do with this artifact? (-Featuring: African Violet, Extractor, Jinn, and Oculus, with Honorary Protector Midnight Brawler)
  • The Spider's Web Part 2: Gqokli Hill: While one team of Protectors are sent to Mexico, a second team takes the Valravyn to South Africa. Lady Claymore, with a contracted agent by the name of Sulphur Shock, accompanies the group as they head to Gqokli Hill, which was once the site of a bloody battle between the Zulus and rival tribes. Upon arrival, the group finds local militia in a losing battle against a horde of spiders. They fight their way through the horde, and face off against Salei, who was in the midst of sacrificing soldiers paralyzed by her spiders' venom. Though the group managed to halt the ritual before all the soldiers could be killed, Salei manages to escape...but not before she implies that she has found candidates for her 'new age'. Speculation among the group leads to the conclusion that the teen group known as The Progeny are in the sorceress's sights. The heroes are forced to make a hasty exit when Psion reports trouble in Plymouth, UK. (-Featuring: Captain Adamant, Razira, and Sparrowhawk, with Sulphur Shock and Honorary Protector Ghostbird)
  • The Spider's Web Part 3: St Michael Ley Line: The Protectors race to the United Kingdom after reports surface of spiders assaulting Plymouth. By the time they arrive, spiders the size of buildings have already covered the city in thick webbing. Meanwhile, magic users are working desperately to keep a swarm of spiders from invading the nearby caves. While Sparrowhawk and Psion contend with the threats outside the caves, Razira leads the remaining Protectors into the caves. There, they encounter Salei, who is making use of the Brazier of Tlaloc and the sacrificial dagger she used at Gqokli Hill. The team find themselves on the losing end of the confrontation as the sorceress draws in power not only from the Saint Michael Ley Line running through Plymouth, but from the heroes themselves. They are forced to retreat when the cave begins to collapse due to seismic instability caused by Salei's drawing on the ley line. It becomes apparent that Salei is gathering in power for something much larger than previously witnessed, and that the Progeny are likely involved in whatever designs she has on the "new age" she intends to bring about. (-Featuring: Extractor, Fahrenheit, Kingdom, Razira, and Sparrowhawk with Honorary Protector Psion)
  • A Word of Warning: The Protectors with Ghostbird's assistance track down The Progeny as the teens are wrapping up a skirmish between local gangs in West Side. Though the meeting is initially tense, eventually cooler heads prevail. The Protectors pass along a warning that Salei has the teen heroes in her sights as candidates for her new age. It becomes apparent that perhaps Monsignor Mendoza and Lady Claymore know more than they are letting on. Several theories are floated, but it is agreed that Salei will likely make her big move on the next new moon. This leaves both groups too little time and too many theories to sort through. Both groups agree to keep one another in the loop until Salei is brought down. (-Featuring: Jinn, Razira and Sparrowhawk from the Protectors, Ace, Faith, HexBane, Kid Ballistic and Kl'vin from The Progeny, with Honorary Protector Ghostbird)
  • Collect Call: The Protectors are summoned to a remote UNTIL base in the Saharan desert, built around an ancient and imposing alien artifact. Having activated not long before, the team is surprised to find that it's been requesting their presence via Morse code. As they arrive, a countdown begins, and a holographic message appears - it's of the Peacemaker, who had been off the grid since the events surrounding the Toledo family (see Chrome Clash - Ed.) and had been exploring the Multiverse. The artifact is actually a sort of 'message in a bottle' through which the Peacemaker intends to return to our dimension - except he has company. A hulking Cyberdemon follows him through, but the Protectors are able to send him back to his realm. Unfortunately, Peace brings foreboding news - the walls between universes are weakening, and whatever the cause is, their Earth lies at the center. (-Featuring: Captain Adamant, Cosmic Glory, Tesseract, Oculus, and the return of The Peacemaker)
  • Operation Blind Knight: When terrorists wielding cryoweapons seize the British Museum and take hostages, the Protectors are called on to resolve the crisis. Captain Adamant calls together the team to put together a plan of action, and upon arriving in London, the Protectors execute this plan. Sparrowhawk leads the strike team, going under the identity of a 'Miranda Chisholm' to negotiate with the terrorists, while Tesseract and Oculus use their abilities to reconnoiter and turn the museum's security against the terrorists. Razira and Extractor await the word to move in. When Sparrowhawk discovers that the terrorists have a bomb, the order is given, and with swift action, the Protectors retake the museum and rescue the hostages! The day is won, though the mystery remains as to how the terrorists could afford such powerful weaponry. (-Featuring: Captain Adamant, Cosmic Glory, Extractor, Jinn, Oculus, The Peacemaker, Razira, Sparrowhawk and Tesseract)
  • Why Did It Have To Be VIPER? - Part 4: Snakes On A Skycarrier: - The Protectors are called to the rescue of the UNTIL skycarrier 'Tel Aviv'. Reliquary - still under the mysterious curse Snakehead's cultists have inflicted her with - attacked the skycarrier together with an army of homunculi and golems and took the crew hostage. Through cunning and a bit of magic, the Protectors manage to infiltrate the skycarrier undetected and make a surprising discovery. This skycarrier was used by UNTIL to test their new, top secret surveillance drone project; code named 'Cottonmouth' after the famous VIPER defectors who revealed much about the organisation to the public. However, when they finally confront Reliquary, who seems to be on the verge of death, the confusion only grows as the sorceress and her minions are busy destroying the drones by incinerating them and throwing them out of the skycarrier. Finally the truth was revealed when Snakehead was reborn from Reliquary's almost dead body. He revealed that he was still trying to bring about 'Paradise On Earth' and that everything up until now was part of a series of rituals to achieve that. As more strange and ancient magic was somehow released throughout the destruction of the drones, Snakehead managed to escape once more. (- Featuring: Cosmic Glory, Razira, Oculus, Fahrenheit and guest-starring Cait Sith of the Progeny)
  • Why Did It Have To Be VIPER? - Part 5: Paradise Lost: - After Fahrenheit and Cosmic Glory manage to combine their powers to track the ancient magic released by Snakehead's ritual, the whole truth is revealed. The insane snake cultist re-enacted and contradicted parts from the Bible relating to snakes, all in an attempt to defy scripture and open the doors of the Garden of Eden again and bring about literal 'Paradise On Earth'. The Protectors rush to the heart of the Arabian desert, the Rub' al Khali, where the ancient magic from Snakehead's rituals is concentrated and the alleged Garden of Eden is located. Before they can put an end to the Serpent's insane plan, they encounter magical sandstorms, ancient and mysterious ruins, and the wrath of a strange angelic creature... (- Featuring: Sparrowhawk, Cosmic Glory, Razira, Oculus, Fahrenheit and guest-starring Cait Sith of the Progeny)

  • Following Threads: Part 1 - Thomas Masev: Razira, HexBane, and Kl'vin are sent to Mexico City to find Thomas Masev, the archaeologist who found the Mask of the Great Goddess. When the arrive at his home, they find that the man committed suicide. They also find that the mask had consumed his life, driving him into despair and paranoia. The man's journals are collected and sketches on his wall are photographed for more research and analysis. (- Featuring: Razira of the Protectors of the World, with HexBane and Kl'vin of The Progeny)

  • Following Threads: Part 2 - Cecie Horner: Kid Ballistic and Jinn arrive in Libya in search of Cecie Horner. They find the smuggler in a black market pocket dimension known as the Hidden Souq (market). After a tense - and awkward - exchange between Horner and Jinn, they manage to get her to provide further information. It seems Salei was to deliver the mask to her coven, but apparently after the merchandise exchanged hands, Salei put the mask on. Horner confirms that likely Salei will show up in Mexico City, naming Templo Mayor specifically. She also mentions that the sorceress may choose Teotihuacan itself. (- Featuring: Jinn of the Protectors of the World and Kid Ballistic of The Progeny)
  • Following Threads: Part 3 - Templo Mayor: Sparrowhawk, Extractor, Miss Mime, HexBane, Faith, Kid Ballistic, and Kl'vin are tasked with guarding Templo Mayor, while a second team heads off to Teotihuacan. When the new moon rises, all hell breaks loose at both sites. A swarm of spiders flood the site, overtaking first Kl'vin and then Kid Ballistic. Sparrowhawk and Extractor work together to drive the spiders off, but not before HexBane dives into the swarm to go after her teammates. It seems that Salei has made her play, ejecting Protectors from the ruins at Teotihuacan and spider-napping Progeny members from both Templo Mayor and Millennium City. (- Featuring: Extractor, Miss Mime and Sparrowhawk of the Protectors of the World, with Faith, HexBane, Kid Ballistic, and Kl'vin of The Progeny)
  • Abaddon: When a villain from the Protectors' past comes to the United States, it is his intent to start a world wide catastrophe! Dr. Ashe sets his sights upon the supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park, prompting the team's intervention to stop him from potentially destroying the entire planet. As several of the team fight from above, it is up to the Peacemaker to search for answers under the earth itself. (-Featuring: Noble, Thundrax, Cosmic Glory, Razira, The Peacemaker, Honorary Protector Psion and a cameo by Sparrowhawk)
  • Blood and Life - The Barrier: Captain Adamant, Oculus and Razira are joined by Sparrowhawk, Extractor and Faith inbound from Templo Mayor via the Valravn and Peacemaker, Fahrenheit and Cait Sith via the Barlowe's PORTAL system outside of Teotihuacan. The sorceress Salei has erected a powerful barrier over the ruins, which not only prevents entry into the site (and to the kidnapped Progeny) but it also seems to have a life draining quality to it. If that isn't bad enough, the barrier continues to expand. The Protectors swing into action, evacuating the remaining civilians and creating a burn barrier to choke off the supply of life around the barrier. After a tense battle first against Salei's spiders and then stone jaguars and eagles, the barrier is finally brought down by an UNTIL orbital strike. With the barrier over the site down, the assembled heroes head into the ruins of Teotihuacan...only to find a pocket dimension instead of the teen heroes. (- Featuring: Captain Adamant, Extractor, Fahrenheit, Oculus, The Peacemaker, Razira and Sparrowhawk of the Protectors of the World, with cameo from Faith and Cait Sith of The Progeny)
  • Nova: The Peacemaker wakes up in the med wing, having recovered from his defeat at the hands of the supervillain Campaign. Though he's concerned by lingering side-effects, the Protectors are distracted by someone entering the base using the PORTAL system. An armored man asks to take the Cosmic Glory with him, all the while displaying a worrisome amount of knowledge about the Protectors' identities and tactics. A brief fight leaves him against the ropes, but the tables are turned when the Protectors are exposed to his armor's power source - a gem that induces crippling feelings of despair. Having failed to capture the Cosmic Glory, the mystery attacker retreats back through the PORTAL system, leaving little clue as to his identity, but no doubt as to his impeding return. (- Featuring: Cosmic Glory, Razira, Thundrax, Tesseract, Jinn, African Violet and The Peacemaker )
  • A Fortune! ... for a Fortune, Darling: With everything happening as it is, crime has been given a dramatic boost with all of its activity and, worse, able to pull off their heists before the heroes could get there. At the same time, there are rumors of a seer or a self proclaimed "witch" offering her services to villains for a price... or some damn good sweets. It sounds very familiar to the Protectors. Can they put an end to the operations before she can foresee her own demise or will this seer do whatever it takes to get her way? (-Featuring: War Hawk, The Peacemaker and Razira)
  • Millennium Rock City!: As the Protectors meet to discuss Destroyer and the Trikon threat, the mysterious Engineer strikes, as she and her army of techno-elementals try to create the greatest monument the world has ever seen out of the City of Tomorrow itself. (-Featuring: Cosmic Glory, Razira, Sparrowhawk and The Peacemaker)
  • Hole in the Sky, Parts 1 and 2: Having saved galactic tourists stranded on their way to the paradise world of Club Caprice (just read the brochures), the Protectors must go to the edge of the solar system, to the wormhole allegedly made by the Trikon, and find out what they're doing. Are the Trikon really in system? And if so, what are they doing here? Who is Dessicus? And what is the fate of Grace Gallowglass, technopath extraordinaire? (-Featuring: Razira, Cosmic Glory, African Violet, The Peacemaker, Sparrowhawk and War Hawk)
  • Rogue Roulette: The Unbreakable Man, Captain Adamant, has a new training program set up to run at the Barlowe for the Protectors of the World. And what better way to try it out than on a new batch of recruits ready to prove their mettle with the team? (-Featuring: Y Ddraig Goch, Witchery Way, Captain Adamant, Sparrowhawk, Razira and Blue Cyclone)
  • Race Against the Witch of Time: The Protectors were having a normal day in the Barlowe before Razira, Peacemaker, Thundrax and Blue Cyclone realize everyone else had disappeared. Through investigating the temporal anomoly, it looks all hope was lost and they, too, would have been erased. It was stopped by the Progeny, Terrific Tiger and Fuliminate, and explain the situation. Dominatriea was trying to erase them from existence to bring back her unborn child and replace the Progeny in their stead. They were the only survivors. They were able to cross back to Dominatriea's pocket dimension with Thundrax and Peacemaker cutting off her power source while Razira, Blue Cyclone and Terrific Tiger try to talk Dominatriea down. Through their efforts, they stopped Dominatriea's plot though leaving the villainness emotionally broken and stuck in her cycle. It is a wonder if they will see her again. (-Featuring: Razira, Thundrax, Blue Cyclone, The Peacemaker and guest appearances of the Progeny!)
  • Operation Whisper Tide: A lone North Korean warship is found adrift only fifty miles from the Japanese coast, and while the Japanese demand to know why, the Koreans plead ignorance. Japan asks the Protectors to intervene. Captain Adamant assembles a team, consisting of Psion, Fahrenheit, Jinn, and Witchery Way. Using Witchery Way's shapeshifting and the Valravn's stealth and submersible abilities, the team boards the vessel. The team finds a dead crew, and the likes of Shadowdragon and Warmonger attempting to arm a bomb, the detonation of which would spark the flames of World War III! Narrowly, the team subdues Warmonger, but not before Shadowdragon escapes! Realizing that her mission has failed, Warmonger then disarms the bomb, and comes willingly into UNTIL custody. (-Featuring: Captain Adamant, Fahrenheit, Jinn, Psion, Witchery Way, and Y Ddraig Goch)
  • Scary Things: What started as friendly turn for an acquaintance with the Millennium City Times, turns into a gruesome fight of survival for a team of Protectors when they are called to investigate a huge, old and supposedly haunted mansion in the Mississippi countryside. While the team first cautiously assumes the haunting to be nothing more than the imagination of the owner's daughter, they soon discover a far more disturbing truth than restless spirits: the mansion itself is alive. A living, breathing creature given life by some dark magic. The Protectors have to find their way through the rooms and corridors of a house that is intent on killing and digesting them, and even when they escape the confines of the house itself, the danger is not over. The monster house continues to stalk the heroes, who are forced to destroy the creature. With only some clues to the house's nature, origin and the identity of its mysterious master, the Protectors are left with more questions than answers. (-Featuring: Blue Cyclone, Psion, Y Ddraig Goch, and Fahrenheit)
  • A Throng Of Ice And Fire: Wildfire season in Canada is upon them, but one fire in particular is much further north than fire weather forecasts predicted. After investigating, the RCMP discovers an explosive device hidden in the forests, and call upon the Protectors to assist. When they arrive, it's too late - several of the devices detonate, and set football fields' worth of forest ablaze! The culprit reveals himself as Blowtorch, an infamous pyromaniac and mercenary, who almost smokes out the team before a second threat arrives, drawn by the raging inferno: Glacier, a monster made of ice once seen at the Battle of Detroit, but was thought to have disappeared into the Arctic! Caught between two foes, and a veritable furnace, things looked dire, until the RCMP returned with reinforcements from Blizzard Risk Control! With BRC's help, the Protectors focus on and defeat the two villains, while the freeze-weapon PMC puts the fires on ice. (-Featuring: Blue Cyclone, Jinn, Razira, and Thundrax)
  • Taskforce Hospitaller: Sparrowhawk, Captain Adamant and Psion meet face to face with Dr. Solomon Stroud as a representative of Operation Hospitaller, a task force that had been formed to put a stop to Kostadin the Black. While giving the Protectors information about the target, he provided confirmation that it was in fact Kostadin that the Progeny faced off against in Westside. He also detailed an operation his organization had undertaken in Buffalo, and that it was believed Kostadin may have numerous labs that are unaccounted for. By the end of the meeting, Sparrowhawk agreed to lend the manpower of the Protectors to what came to be known as Taskforce Hospitaller. (-Featuring: Captain Adamant, Psion, and Sparrowhawk with Dr. Solomon Stroud of Initiative Black)


Protectors Missions, 151-165


MISSIONS 151-165


  • A Pit of Bones - Part One: Dr. Solomon Stroud calls in the Protectors to assist in breaching one of Kostadin the Black's facilities beneath Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario Canada. When the group is sent plummeting to the bottom of a pit due to a collapsing catwalk, they come face to face with a group of moss covered, animalistic servitors. Their haphazard entry allowed for other members of Taskforce Hospitaller to descend to the bottom of the pit with little resistance, allowing the Protectors to fall back and tend to their wounded. (- Featuring: Blue Cyclone, Cosmic Glory, Razira, Wildeye and Y Ddraig Goch)
  • A Pit of Bones - Part Two: After days of fighting within the tunnels of the Ontario facility, the Protectors are called upon to return to the lab upon the discovery of a large vault door hidden deep within. Once they manage to breach the door, they discover an effigy hanging suspended above a catwalk. They effigy is destroyed, which led to the shadows on the wall fusing together to form a towering black figure. With a lift of its hand, it summoned a powerful servitor, with massive size and strength. It took the combined efforts of both Cosmic Glory and Thundrax to destroy the creature's brain and stop its rampage. The horrors didn't end there, as the Protectors discovered a stone walled chamber at the facility's heart. Inside were twenty men, women and children hooked up to a Soul Siphon, which had fed for decades at this point on the misery of the victims. (- Featuring: Blue Cyclone, Cosmic Glory, Razira, Thundrax and Wildeye)
  • The Siege of Pittsburgh - Into the Breach: The Protectors, forming the tip of the spear for Operation Hospitaller, push their way into a breech made into a massive subterranean complex hidden beneath the city of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The heroes find themselves confronted by a massive horde of gray skinned beings, which proceeded to charge at them. In the fierce fighting that ensued, several National Guardsmen died. Captain Adamant is injured in the act of saving one last pair of guardsman, while Blue Cyclone unleashed her powers to conduct electricy through white fluid that had spilled out from the breach. When one of the creatures picks up one of the soldiers M4 and aims it at the incapacitated Captain, Psion unleashed her psychic abilities to order the undead horde to stop. Unfortunately, this drew the presence of none other than Kostadin the Black, using Psion as a link to exert his will over his minions and twist them into a form he could manipulate to battle the Protectors. The timely intervention of Initiative Black's Agent Jones - aka Echoes and Ashes - turned the tide in the heroes favor, but it was the newly added Protector Tracer that delivered the final blow. The Taskforce was able to set up a choke point, while the Captain and Psion were ushered out to be seen by the medics.

Battle Royale: The Protectors face off against some of their most dangerous foes. Captain Adamant, Cosmic Glory, Jinn, Sparrowhawk and Thundrax versus Adrian Arkwright, Doctor Kaufmann, Invictus and MEKKA
NOTABLE NEMESES OF THE PROTECTORS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:


  • Adrian Arkwright: An ancient vampire who also commands vast mystical abilities. Adrian was able to create a drug called "The Thirst" which allowed him to tap into the humanity and energy of humans, adding to his own power considerably. It also created a form of quasi-vampirism for anyone addicted to it. Adrian led a full assault on Millennium City in the summer of 2015, nearly destroying it. His plans were thwarted by the combined efforts of the Protectors of the World and a gathering of Millennium's most powerful heroes. Arkwright himself was vanquished by a holy relic (a stake which was originally part of the cross Christ was crucified upon) that made its way to the team's hands, piercing his heart and saving everyone involved.
  • The Apotheosis Project: The Apotheosis Project was a vast organization of people scattered across the world whose purpose was to remove super human individuals from the planet. Many held high ranking positions in government and military organizations. Most of the names of those affiliated with this movement were discovered by the Protectors. After the fall of Leviathan in Millennium City, the remaining members went into hiding. Sparrowhawk took it upon herself to bring the majority of them to justice.
  • Ao Guang: Chinese mystical villain. He is well versed in the occult and supernatural. Often utilizes mystical objects and items to enhance his powers. Ao Guang was responsible for opening up ancient rifts deep within the ocean and attempting to wipe out parts of Burma before the Young Renegades and Protectors defeated him.
  • Cassowary: Jason Mansfield is Cassowary, one of the main players who was involved with the Apotheosis Project. Essentially a genetic 'brother' to Sparrowhawk, Cassowary has led attacks on the Protectors before. With the Apotheosis Project currently brought to its knees, Cassowary still is at large, using his power and talents to garner him favor in the criminal underworld.
  • The Conquerors: A team of metahumans and deadly mercenaries lead by the head of state of Buwugu, Captain Conquest. Consisting of 7 additional members among which the Protectors have thus faced Killer Chrome, Hitokiri and Lady Silken, the Conquerors also have an elite band of soldiers at their call and beckon, making them a force to be reckoned with. Their modus operandi is to secure powerful weapons and black market deals worldwide, and they will stop at absolutely nothing in order to keep the lands of Buwugu the most powerful military force on the African inland. Wether loyal to the cause or to the money they're provided, they're certain to not let any hero, not even The Protectors, get in the way of their business.
Cosmic Glory, Peacemaker, Sparrowhawk, Captain Adamant and Razira.
  • Crimson Fury: Crimson Fury is an Indian super villain who has created a technological empire in his home country. He sells weaponry to the highest bidder and was one of the vendors used by the Apotheosis Project. Crimson Fury used an air carrier about a mile in length to conduct his business venture. The carrier was destroyed by several members of the Protectors of the World, though Crimson Fury himself escaped.
  • The Datamen: A collection of six individuals who together have amassed a computerized criminal empire. Originally they were responsible for retrieving 175 coded named out of PRIMUS' files. The files were wiped, however, before they could be properly decrypted and sold to the highest bidder in an 'auction' of sorts for villains. The Datamen were foiled but currently still at large.
  • Doctor Ashe: Dr. Ashe was a scientist who heralded the Mag-Men, creatures of ancient power, in New Zealand.
  • Gadragon: Alleged alien jailor or warden of a prison planet. He was involved in one battle with the Protectors, but he made a hasty exit and a promise to return soon to Earth.
  • The Furies: Trio of Greek female assassins. They are sisters Aylala, Alissa and Ariadna Petros. Each one of them is highly trained and wields a specially designed suit of power armor. They work for the highest bidder, which has put them at odds against several heroes, most notably the Protectors. Alissa's power armor was recovered by the team during one fight, though all three have since upgraded their uniforms and fighting equipment. They remain at large.
  • Invictus: Invictus is former Senator David Sutherland, a supervillain who poses as a super hero to mask his insane and diabolical motives. A worshiper of the cult of Sol Invictus and a gestalt with the spirit of an ancient Syrian sorcerer which gave him super strength, invulnerability and sun beams. At one time he altered the time stream in a bid to remove his former misdeeds which were uncovered and made public. Currently heads a team of roughly one hundred lower tier borderline low-end supers called the CenturyCorps which do his bidding. Invictus and Thundrax have clashed many times over the years, several of which have involved the Protectors.
  • Kaptain Komics: Kaptain Komics is Eugene Harris, your stereotypical slovenly comics reading nerd. What what he lacks in character, he makes up for in power. Kaptain Komics is a mutant, one who is actually able to slightly bend the fabric of reality to his own bidding. The only things he requires is an imagination and a focus to keep his powers engaged. In the past this has been such things as a pen or a hair ribbon. He often plays upon things he already knows about to shape his fantasies into reality like books, movies, cartoons and, you guessed it... comic books.
  • The Kraken: The Kraken is a notorious super powered pirate who has command of a fleet of a number of aquatic vessels. His men are fiercely loyal to him and well-trained. The Kraken himself is versed in armed and unarmed combat. He possesses the ability to lift around 40 tons, enhanced reflexes, the ability to survive underwater and withstand great pressures as well as a suit of armor which grants him additional protection. His favorite above-water weapons are two energy whips that he is incredibly adept at using. Some say his small army could very well number in the thousands and he has several dozen ships that do his bidding upon the high seas.
  • Leviathan: Leviathan is a villain of almost immeasurable power. His origins are unknown, and more monster than man, Leviathan revels in utter destruction. This villain is deemed to be one of the most dangerous beings on the planet, akin to Grond. Leviathan can grow to a height of around one hundred and fifty feet, lift over fifteen thousand tons and has the ability to release a poisonous, toxic gas from his pores. Currently Leviathan is held in stasis at an underground facility in an unnamed city in the United States.
  • M.E.K.K.A.: A technological genius and madman, M.E.K.K.A. began primarily as a nemesis for Sparrowhawk. He had runs ins on several occasions with the group Rising Force as well as the Protectors. Incarcerated in Stronghold, the villain committed suicide, uploading his consciousness into cyberspace as a way to free himself. Once free of the flesh of humanity, M.E.K.K.A. attempted to take control of Avestus, the small planetoid ship which was being guarded by the Protectors. Though that directive failed, both he and his mechanical minions have posed a threat to humanity that the Protectors are sworn to stop, wherever it may be.
  • The Men in White: A vast organisation under the leadership of the ex-assassin known as the Doctor, the Men in White are involved in a wide range of criminal activities: drugs and weapons trade, money laundering, illegal gambling and more. In comparison to other gangs and cartels they excel through superior training and equipment as well as subtle methods and careful planning, which makes them a noticeable threat to law enforcement and even superheroes. They have smaller operations all over the United States, but are most active in Hudson City, Vibora Bay and Millennium City, where their HQ is located. The Protectors and the Men in White have clashed on numerous occasions (and even grudgingly worked together against larger threats).
  • Red Mist: An invocation of the demon-god Baal Berith, Red Mist is a powerful entity motivated entirely by consuming as much blood as possible by any means necessary - the more violent, the better. His first appearance was after the Protectors attempted to rescue Patrick Marko, an otherwise nondescript accountant, from being the victim of a major DEMON ritualistic sacrifice. The ritual was interrupted, and Patrick was taken to a clinic in West Side. There, the Protectors and the Progeny learned that Patrick had in fact become something else, and defeated him after he managed to kill several of the clinic staff and enthrall several of the patients. His frozen remains have been locked away - but can an evil so ancient really be trapped like that?
  • Shining Son: Dr. Martin Merriweather was a cult leader whose influence led to the creation of the Children of Prajna. Merriweather, using a mystical pendant, took his followers to a self labelled utopia. His true ulterior motives were to summon a creature of great other dimensional power. Dr. Merriweather's hopes were dashed by the intervention of the Protectors and his pendant destroyed, thereby sealing the ability of the creature to pass into our world.
  • Spring-Heeled Jack: Spring-Heeled Jack is a demonic entity that may or may not be the same Victorian era monster from the 1800s. Spring-Heeled Jack inhabited members of the Adventurers of Avalon to turn briefly evil and kidnap several members of Parliament. He was using Stonehenge as some sort of mystical focus as he fought and was defeated by Zwein and several other Protectors in combat.
  • Steel Champion & Scrappy: Steel Champion and his faithful side-kick, Scrappy, were heroes that the government in the 1950s used to fight in the Cold War. When things subsided, the two were placed into a facility to be held. The facility was officially closed in 1978, but the two remained. They were at one time human, though treated very much like robots. For 37 years they remained awake, driven to a form of insanity from decades of solitude and inactivity. They fought against several Protectors after the two almost destroyed a small Pennsylvania city. They were awoken from their confused mental state and surrendered. Both of them now are free, working with UNTIL as well as receiving psychiatric treatment from the Protectors' own counselor, Aura.
  • Tsetse-Bumba: A mystical spirit deity of sorts, Tsetse-Bumba worked at destroying African Violet during a trip to South Africa. Her plan was foiled when her throat was ripped open by none other than Dobergirl... though it remains to be seen if you can actually kill something so powerful.

"I'm quite proud of what the Protectors have accomplished since the group's inception. If you told me in the beginning of my career that I would be the head of such an organization I would have laughed. I always was the type who consciously shirked from such collectives and preferred to work alone. There has been a lot I've learned not just about others but myself as well from embracing a team dynamic. Together, we are unstoppable... and I think the world is safer for it." - Sparrowhawk

Chivalry, Tartolmec, Sherwood, Laser Knight, Thundrax, Fathom, Fahrenheit and Sparrowhawk.

"I'm not sure if the team will ever fully recover from the loss of Thundrax's mullet, but they're quite possibly still the strongest hero team out there. At least until the new generation has had the chance to catch up to 'em." - Black Ice

"As a Honorary Protector... no really, I TOTALLY worked with them before... I think they are A-MAZ-ING. And Stonemason, CALL ME! I totally gave you my digits and haven't even heard back from you!" - Lash

"Sometimes I wake up and wait for someone to say 'just kidding, we really didn't mean to invite you.' I mean there are people on this team that completely outclass me, not just in terms of powers but experience as well. Even though I may not see eye-to-eye with all of my teammates, I know that without a doubt that they have my back." - Tesseract

"I'll confess that my experiences with heroes outside of my own team is limited. From what I can gather, I think we could learn a lot about teamwork by watching the Protectors at work." - Cait Sith

"After my last team went their separate ways, I thought for some time that maybe I was meant to stand on my own against injustice; that other heroes were less like friends and more like passing colleagues. Then I joined the Protectors, and they reminded me that friendship and teamwork makes us stronger. I owe all of them for that." - The Peacemaker

"I never assumed that I'd be working with such a large and impressive team as the Protectors...much less being second in command of them. That said, I could not ask for a better group of people to work with. Everyone has something they bring to the team and as a whole we're downright unstoppable. I know I can trust each and everyone one of them to do the right thing and be at my back when we're out on the field." - Razira

"It's nice, y'know? Like, being part of a team and stuff. I mean, everyone's still got their own goals but when we can all like, come together and just put all that aside... I'unno, man. That's kinda cool if you ask me." - Stonemason

"Well I don't think they have as much fun as we do, but they are packing serious heat. There aren't many Y chromosomes on that team, I hear; maybe I should put in for a transfer. I bet I could learn a lot from their 'experience'." - Kid Ballistic

"The world left convention behind decades ago. It's a hard lesson, but the Protectors have learned it better than most. My membership among them is a proud one. I look forward to a long career at their side." -- Captain Adamant

"I'm still REALLY new to this group. I've butted heads with a couple of the more serious members, and befriended most of them. I'm not a hundred percent sure what my place in the team is yet, if there are things as places in this team. But I get a strong feeling of duty from everyone of them. We all act in different ways, but at the end of the day we make one of the strongest teams I've ever seen. I'm glad to be a part of them." - Imp (Angel Anderson)

"I am grateful for the chance to be a part of the Protectors. It is a great honor for me, and the von Schneider family and to pay homage to this partnership I vow to do everything in my power to ensure that the sun will always shine for this team. Figuratively speaking." - Fahrenheit

"Remember folks, always use Protectors! ...What do you mean that's inappropriate to use as our slogan? It's a valuable life lesson!" - Jinn
