AT DC AND IMAGE, SUPERMAN ANALOGUES GUARD THE BLEED

In our previous article, we argued that Superman analogues at DC Comics and Image Comics guard the Bleed. When the Wildstorm Universe joined DC Comics in 1999, The Authority first appeared. This Anti-Justice League guarded the Bleed. Additionally, it housed Apollo, a Superman analogue. Another Superman analogue, Mister Majestic first appeared in Image Comics in 1994.

In Captain Atom: Armageddon, he worked to protect the Wildstorm Universe from destruction. At Image Comics, Supreme and his alternate versions protect the supremacy. Really, similarities between Supreme and Thought Robot suggest his story may have created the Image Universe. Let’s explain.

IN THE STORY OF THE YEAR ALAN MOORE CREATES TEAM SUPREME

Team Supreme. Image Comics.

LIKE THOUGHT ROBOT, SUPREME’S STORY IS CENTRAL TO IMAGE COMICS

THE SUPREMACY PROVES SUPREME IS A STORY

In Superman, The Greatest Story: How Art Deco Meets Plot Device, I argued Superman’s story popularized the superhero genre. Specifically, Grant Morrison suggests the Thought Robot created the DC Comics franchise. Similarly, Supreme may be the central story at Image Comics.

Like DC’s Limbo, the Supremacy is a form of Image Limbo. At DC’s Limbo dead or forgotten characters exist. At Image’s Limbo, Supreme’s amnesia as well as revisions in his continuity are associated with alternate versions. In addition, it is a form of Limbo for Supreme who was once forgotten on Earth. In many respects, Supreme is a story like Thought Robot.

SUPREMIUM CAN WARP REALITY

In The Story Of The Year, Alan Moore gives a revamped origin of Supreme. Originally, Supreme gained super powers after exposure to Supremium while an infant. Incredibly, he developed the typical powers of a Superman analogue: super strength, super speed, super vision, senses, flight, intelligence.

Importantly, we learnt that Supremium can warp reality. In the case of his arch-enemy, Darius Dax, his experiments with Supremium created a temporal paradox causing him to time travel. In addition, it may have caused Dax’s dimensional transport to Daxia upon death. In fact, it is a form of Limbo containing the possible versions of Dax.

BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL, SUPREME MET JACK KIRBY

In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond #2, Thought Robot breaks the Fourth Wall. This is the literary process where a character is aware of being a creation in a work of literature. Here, Thought Robot is either aware of the Presence, the Writer or the reader.

Similarly, Supreme can break the Fourth Wall. In Supreme: The Return, Supreme meets with the Writer, Jack Kirby. While investigating ideas invading Earth, Supreme meets with the Monarch. And he finds out the Monarch is the Writer who tells him Supreme can achieve virtually anything. In essence, he has limitless power.

IN CRISES

THE KHERUBIM/DAEMONITE WAR

You may have seen the TV show in the ’90s: Spartan, Grifter, Zealot, Warblade and Co. participate in a war between two alien races. In Season 1 Episode 6, Majestyk awakens from a stasis pod. He immediately assumes command of the WildC.A.T.s. to Spartan’s reluctance. He intends to oppose Helspont who seeks an orb that can conquer the universe.

Retro Rerun

VOLUME 1 COLLECTS THE KHERUBIM/DAEMONITE WAR

In ‘WildC.A.T.s’ (1992) #1, we are introduced to the Wild Covert Action Teams. AP Photo/Image Comics

Volume 1 collects the Kherubim/Daemonite war. Volume 1 collects the following issues:

  • WildC.A.T.S Covert Action Teams – Collects # 1-4
  • A Gathering of Eagles – Collects # 10-13
  • Homecoming – Collects # 21-27
  • Gang War – Collects # 28-34

Despite being an Image series, the series suffered from frequent delays. After September, the frequency would decrease and it would take at least two years in order to get on a monthly schedule.

The Alan Moore run suffered from the lack of a consistent artist and missed deadlines. Though it added some significant contribution to the mythos.

THE KHERUBIM

The Kherubim are human in appearance though they are stronger, more durable and virtually immortal. The downside is that Kheran are almost infertile and rarely produce offspring. However, Kheran do have the ability to produce offspring with other species, such as the existence of Kheran/human hybrids. Some Kheran are known are Lords and are more powerful, with abilities to manipulate energy and other psionic abilities.

Shapers are a subspecies of Kherans. They are shapeshifters and they are able to change their bodies into a mercury-like substance. The Titans are part of Kherubim society and are purple in appearance. They can increase or decrease their mass. They have large yellow horns on their backs. When they change their mass, they lose intelligence.

THE DAEMONITES

The Daemonites are reptilians from the planet Daemon that are capable of possessing host bodies. Daemonites need to possess someone in order to survive on a planet other than their native planet such as Earth. When a Daemonite possesses someone he has access to all the abilities the host has.

The Daemonite can change the host into its Daemonite form for a short period of time. Daemonites are near immortal. They have the ability to regenerate from injuries. The Daemonites are often drawn with sharp claws, sharp teeth and hunched. Though Daemonite Lords like Helspont look different.

Millennia ago the Kherans came into contact with the Daemonites and a war erupted between both species. This war would last several centuries. A small group of Kherans and Daemonites would crashland on Earth and would inspire humanity with tales of gods, angels, demons and monsters. Their conflict would continue till the end of the 20th century, while in space the Kherans would go on to defeat the Daemonites. Kherans imposed heavy indemnities on the Daemonites and their society went bankrupt trying to pay them off. Khera allowed Daemonites to migrate to the more prosperous planet, but all Daemonites on Khera had to live in ghettos.

Supreme and Radar

Today we talk about a character that is lesser known. Supreme was created by Rob Liefeld for Image Comics as a violent and angry Superman analogue. He was taken over by Alan Moore who created him as a “tribute to [the] Silver Age Superman”. (Supreme)

A bit on his origin.

Supreme, Radar, and Suprema

Ethan Crane, the son by adoption of Joe and Joanne Crane of Littlehaven. Supreme gained his super powers through exposure to Supremium radiation in 1925. “The radiation caused his hair to turn white” and granted him formidable super powers such as:

super strength, flight, invulnerability, super speed, durability, heat vision, ice breath, x-ray vision, energy absorption, atom manipulation, immortality via superhuman adaptation, regeneration, the ability to come back from death, skill with alien technology. (Supreme)

Supreme is vulnerable only to Supremium radiation.

He served in the military during World War II and joined the Allied Supermen of America, the first superhero team. He became a founding member of the Allies, “the premier superhero team of the 1960s”. (Supreme)
