PowerTrip V: The Vanisher

PowerTrip V: Vanisher 2040. Gary Nile appeared in his jeans, button-up, and cozy sweater. A good sign of his mental state. When he appeared as the Vanisher, it was as though he were a different man—unreachable, intimidating.

PowerTrip VII: Press Conference

Urban Dragon on Patrol–Toronto, 2027

Dragons. So wonderful and breathtaking to imagine. They emerge, a few or a handful per population centre, in 2025, joining the countries in which they would live as citizens.

Aliens I-The Red Fox of Planet C-23

For this build I wanted a Lethal Landscape apex predator that would impress. I wanted a predator that looked fast and might be very smart. Foxes delight me: supreme opportunists, varied diet allowing it to survive in more habitats. Zoologists now arriving on the colonial world work at classifying a whole new planet’s species. Some […]

2051. PowerTrip, the world’s last superheroes left standing, disbanded five years ago after hunting down the last Infernal.   One sunny afternoon in July, Torontonians gathered at Dundas Square to watch a woman dressed in red and white floating fifteen storeys above the concrete, carrying a middle-aged man in a dark suit.

Infernals VIII: Who Is the Watcher?

2042. “He’s magnificent, the greatest pure killer on Earth. Only our enemy War God has absorbed more knowledge of war and killing. We need the greatest killer against the greatest warrior.” “What will you do with him? What will he bring besides his skills?” Zealot, the leader of the Infernals, asked. “War God has nothing […]
