Knights Vigilant

In the underground basement storage spaces of a Youth Center in Manhattan, six of New York’s newest heroes brashly plot their next foray into crime-fighting. It would be grand if they could settle on a name, though the current favorite is “Knights Vigilant”. At this point, they will probably keep it since that’s how the locals around Central Park know them.

It would be [i]astounding[/i] if they could figure out what they’re doing, before they get in over their heads.

Optimistic, and almost aggressively moral, each of these street level heroes are determined to uphold the good in everyone and do believe in a “Responsibility of Power”. But collectively they have a certain style all their own. One that sometimes causes a bit of eye rolling from other heroes or law enforcement.

Currently, the group’s membership ranges from a professional librarian, a wealthy adventurer, a destitute barely-literate fortune teller, a crusading lawyer, an inventor who almost turned criminal on his first in-costume day, a former Olympic athlete turned mercenary, and an outcast Atlantean prince with a flair for theatrics.

While they aren’t above helping anyone, anywhere, they tend to spend their time helping protect and clean up the area around New York’s Central Park area.

They also tend to have an ongoing feud with a local gang known as the Disco Boys.

(Note:

This is our most four-color superhero storyline, though it s still fairly gritty. The heroes are optimistic, aggressively moral, determined to Uphold the Good or exemplify the Responsibility of Power. When they get together and really get going, the whole superteam seems to develop a little Thrill of Adventure motivation as they steamroll through. The heroes include a professional librarian, a wealthy adventurer, a destitute barely-literate woman, a crusading lawyer, an inventor who almost went villain on his first in-costume day, and an athletic mercenary.

They tend to fight low-level over-the-top villains like Spiderlily, or the lower echelons of slightly cheesey villain organizations like the Golden Lotus. Their favorite adversary is a gang known as the Disco Boys.
