Here's the 4th teaser for Dude in Distress, giving you a look at the major superheroes of the story. In the first Episode (i.e., first issue), you'll only see Femme Fantastic, although a few others will be mentioned.

As for a start date for the comic . . . I'm still not sure yet, but it'll probably be bumped back to summer. Production has been more labor-intensive and time-consuming than I had expected, and I don't want Dude in Distress to interfere with Fusion, so I'm slowly working on Dude in Distress artwise (writing-wise, I'm well over halfway through scripting the second issue, so I have tons of material to do art for).

I will continue to do art teasers every month until I'm comfortably ready to launch.

These are actually really great superhero names.

Hmm, Beauty Beast makes me think of Tigra from the Marvel Universe. The Grim Gumshoe makes me think of Rorschach (Watchmen). Hopefully these characters distinguish themselves from these others.

Tigra was one of the inspirations for Beauty Beast's look. However, BB is a shape-changer (so more Beast Boy in powers). You'll meet her (and Lady Lightspeed) at the start of Episode 2. Grim Gumshoe is more of what Nightwing would've been like if he had gone grim dark. GG was Scarlet Sleuth's partner before striking out on his own, in part because the Sleuth was too detached and cerebral and has a general aversion to physical confrontations, and the Gumshoe enjoys beating on the bad guys. I guess the Gumshoe is a cross between Watson and Batman.

Sooo, Admiral Awesome and Femme Fantastic are related, most likely siblings...

Not related--just from the same planet.

Yeah, that was a too-wild guess at this point :D

But not illogical.
