DRAGONFORCE

SYNOPSIS:
Brought together to train as a super team, the members of Dragonforce are surprised when their first mission is rescuing one of their own: Holly Sental, an alien whose past has caught up with her has been stolen from Earth by old enemies. Once Holly is returned, they confront a monstrous mutant created by toxic waste. A SF super-team comic with alien action and environmentalist messages.

CHARACTERS:
Holly Sental, an alien from the planet of Stevlar, and once the leader of the elite Stevlarian Knights, she has highly advanced armor and can fly. She’s ready to leap into action if she sees someone in danger. She takes the form of a pale green-haired woman when not in her armor, which compresses into a “Stevlarian Gem” she wears as a pendant.

Maire Siddons, a psychic and practitioner of magic; voluptuous with voluminous black hair. She can open portals to command demons; demons and animals have an immediate sense of loyalty to her.

Kohl Drake, nearly indestructible warrior and the team leader. Blonde and muscular, he wears a suit mad of ancient reptilian skin, marked with the sign of a dragon, that enhances his own physical abilities. An encounter with a mutant monster turns him into a dragon-man, with wings and enhanced speed. 

Kamikaze, a Japanese-Canadian female samurai whose sword skills are unmatched; she owns the Canadian hideaway where the team trains. She’s also the computer expert of the team and was trusted by Holly with Holly’s personal data files.

Mark Quay (Alloy), formerly paralyzed after being shot by a street gang, Mark wears a suit that bypasses his spinal injury and allows him to “move freely, and much, much more.” Red haired (later with a shaved head) and naturally muscular, the suit enhances pre-paralyzed physical prowess. He wears signature round red sunglasses.

Heuskabores, huge and ugly, these alien enemies of the Stevlarians (Holly’s people) destroyed most of their planet.

Ethan Sental, Holly’s brother, who was corrupted by wearing another Stevlarian Knight’s Stevlarian Gem. She’s able to rescue him from the Heuskabores Mind Wash and return him to the side of good, but at a loss to his armor. 

High Commander, the leader of the Heuskabores.

Bob Smith, a naturalist (long brown hair and brown beard) who discovers a crisis in an Alaskan toxic waste dump.
