History:
The daughter of rich and powerful psychiatrist, Dr. Jeremiah Darque, Jeanne spent her childhood in a strict and formal environment.  A quiet child, Jeanne was under tremendous pressure to be top in her classes, and to follow in her authoritarian father’s footsteps to become a psychiatrist.  But the repressed often rebel against their oppressors; Jeanne all but spit in her father’s face, shunning her family and heritage.

She fled to the city to pursue her life, where she was able to come out of her shell and discover herself for who she truly was, and not what she had been told she had to be.  She realized that she was attracted to women.  While working as a telemarketer, she met a young woman named Naomi, who shared similar interests, and they fell in love.

A call from her ailing father’s physician brought Jeanne racing back to the family manor.  Her father was dying of cancer, and Jeanne longed to make amends before it was too late.  On her way to Darque Manor, Jeanne’s car was stopped in its tracks by an extraterrestrial vessel.  Using a device called the Cube, the aliens called M’Waor transformed Jeanne into a super-powered being.  They charged her with the guardianship of the Cube, telling her that this device would someday save the Earth from complete destruction.  Reluctantly, Darque accepted, eventually seeking out and transforming Cube-chosen humans into the Guardians she leads today.

Unfortunately, Darque’s father died while she was en route to see him.  Despite their differences, her father bequeathed his entire fortune to his only daughter.

For several years, Darque led the guardians without a hint of humor, always with her mind of the ultimate goal.  Eventually the pressures of leadership and the burden of her immense responsibilities as primary wielder of the Cube began to take their toll.

In a desperate attempt to add levity to her life, Darque underwent a change of looks, and tried not to take leadership so seriously.  But this would prove a temporary remedy at best, and not at all sufficient to alleviate her considerable worries and fears.

The knowledge that the M’Waor had entrusted her with the Cube because she was the only human they could find in the vicinity of their vessel – not because she was remarkable in any way – became too much for her to handle.  This coupled with the apparent death of Ghostboy, a fellow Guardian that she loved like she would love a son, was more than she could deal with.  She decided to relinquish control of the Cube over to Numa, a fellow Guardian she felt was truly worthy of the responsibility.

Darque continues to serve as a Guardian of the Cube, more than content to no longer lead the outfit.  Since turning the Cube over to Numa, Darque has felt an immense pressure lifted from her shoulders.  She has a renewed joie de vivre that was denied her for far too long.

Powers and Paraphernalia:
Jeanne Darque’s body is a gateway to an uncharted dark dimension.  Hence, Darque can absorb light and matter into her body, depositing it into the dimension on the other side.  She possesses complete control over darkness and the energies that exist within it.  She can use darkness to create projectiles, force beams and even wings for flight.

She can travel via shadows, essentially using them as “doorways” through which she seems able to teleport.

Darque is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant and has recently begun to further develop her skills as such.

Zahn

Real Name: Zahn
Occupation: Barbarian, elemental
Base of Operations: mobile throughout the land of Varda
Place of Birth: The village Mazudun in the land of Varda
Known Relatives: Xom (brother) Elib (grandfather)
Group Affiliation: none
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Homosexual
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 232 lbs.
Eyes: silver
Hair: salt and pepper
Penis: 10 inches, uncut
First Appearance: Zahn #1 (2008)
Current Appearances: Zahn #1, Striptease #1, Boytoon Adventures #1

History:
Soon after leaving his village to embark on a vision quest, the young Barbarian called Zahn is ambushed by the dreaded Harpy Men. He nearly perishes at their hands, but is rescued by a mysterious Genie. The Genie, also called the Blue Man heals the barbarian, and months later, Zahn awakens atop Mount Surazule with no memory of his past. He finds that he now possesses strange new powers.

After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the dreaded Almesti, Zahn journeyed to the township of Pennloap hoping for a meal and a good night’s sleep. He got much more than that. There het met Jonah, who had supposedly been Zahn’s lover in months passed, and who had allegedly been waiting for Zahn to rejoin him.

Naturally Zahn was intrigued, deciding that Jonah might be able to fill him in on his past and help him regain his memory. Realizing that his lover was genuinely amnesiac, Jonah agreed to help Zahn remember the relationship they had both enjoyed. After a passionate night of hot sex, Zahn and Jonah decided to journey back to their home village, figuring that a familiar setting might bring Zahn’s memory back.

Upon arriving at the village, Zahn and Jonah found nothing but death and destruction. Their home had been obliterated by strange beasts with glistening hides. Zahn swore then and there that he would avenge his people.

Now the fate of Varda lies in his hands and Zahn must seek out and destroy this great new evil that threatens to obliterate his beloved homeland.

Powers and Paraphernalia:
Zahn possess complete control over the forces of winter. He can summon great, violent winds to freeze his opponents dead in their tracks. Using those same winds, he can carry himself aloft, and even “fly”, employing the wind currents to propel himself. Since he is relatively new at this, the maximum speeds at which he can travel have yet to be ascertained.

Zahn can cause the temperature of the area he occupies to drop far below freezing. The maximum radius of this ability remains to be determined.

He can project shards of ice, boulders of snow or ice rain, all of which make remarkable weapons and can subdue most foes easily. He is also capable of creating thick ice shields which can deflect several projectiles and protect him from fire attacks.

Depending on the degree to which Zahn employs his powers, his physical form will begin to ice over. This is apparently not harmful to Zahn, and is simply a resulting side effect of using his powers.

Zahn is completely impervious to the cold and can withstand drastic drops in temperature and pressure. This is presumably essential to his ability to employ his powers.

Zahn carries a Barbarian’s spiked war club. This club is forged of metal and is highly durable. He also wears a pouch on his belt which carries currency and small food stuffs. Since he is impervious to cold, he chooses to wear very little in the way of clothing. Whether being nearly nude becomes a hindrance when in battle remains to be seen.

Allies and companions:
Zahn travels with Jonah, an exotic dancer who claims that he and Zahn were once lovers. Though Zahn trusts Jonah, he remains cautious as a small part of him cannot help but question Jonah’s story.

While in the township of Pennloap, Zahn met and adopted a small gray cat named Maymay. She accompanies him everywhere.

Soon after leaving Pennloap, Zahn and Jonah were ambushed by a Violer beast. It was then that Maymay revealed her true nature as a warrior woman living under a curse. Maymay lives out most of her life as a cat, but when danger is near, she can become human again, and leap into action.

She was cursed in this way when she put on a pair of magical warrior gauntlets. She can never remove these gauntlets, but on the upside, they serve as formidable weapons when she is called into battle.

Maymay is Zahn’s familiar and is completely loyal to him. She would lay down her life for him and protects and assists him in every way she can.

Space Cadet

Real Name: Byron Emil Durand
Occupation: Body guard for hire, adventurer and Guardian of the Cube.
Base of Operations: Gateway city, the One Eyed Snake Nightclub and Darque Manor.
Place of Birth: New York, NY
Known Relatives: Louisa Durand (mother) and Emil Durand (father)
Group Affiliation: The Guardians of the Cube
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Homosexual
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 203 lbs.
Eyes: brown, though they appear blue, because of the special contact lenses he wears.
Hair: naturally black, but he prefers to bleach it platinum blonde.
Penis: 11 inches, cut
First Appearance: Naked Justice #2 (2004)
Current Appearances: Naked Justice #2, Rapture #1, Rapture #2, Rapture #3, Striptease #1

History:
Born to Louisa Durrand, a private school teacher, and Emil Durrand, a well-respected scientist and engineer, Byron Durand was a very quiet child, who preferred to keep to himself and read comics rather than interact with the other children at his school. Considered the school geek, he was bullied from a young age by the older kids, and because of his slight build, they found it easy to push him around. But despite the hardships he endured, Byron remained a very optimistic and happy child, taking refuge from the adversity in the pages of his favorite comic books.

His mother and father used to try and encourage him to be more outgoing, but Byron had no interest in being friends with the kids who treated him so poorly. He preferred to nourish his imagination instead.

One fateful afternoon when he was 15 years old, he and his mother were out walking in New York, when Byron caught a glimpse of “the Goddess”. To this day, his parents still don’t know to who he was referring to, but Byron insists that that moment was the defining instant of his life. He saw his heroine fly gracefully across the bright, blue sky, her long silver hair and cloak flowing in the cool breeze, and in that instant, his life would be changed forever.

He had been bullied and ridiculed for too long, and he would stand for it no longer. Byron began to exercise and take care of his body. He joined the school track team and began to lift weights, until he had become a full-fledged athlete. He took lessons in the martial arts, and became well versed in many forms of combat.

Seeing “the Goddess” made him realize that he could be more than the boy that everybody pushed around, and that in fact, he could become someone that people looked up to and respected. He decided then and there that he would fulfill his dream of becoming a super hero.

At 19 Byron decided that he was now ready for adventure. By then he was an extremely handsome young man, toned and muscled to perfection. His body was as powerful a fighting machine as it was beautiful. Still, Byron needed a “gimmick”… something that set him apart and gave him his own identity as a super hero. That is when he decided to turn to his father.

Emil Durand’s research centered around the creation of new equipment for NASA’s astronauts. Byron let his father in on his dream of becoming one of the world’s heroes, despite his fear that his father might not understand. To his surprise, Emil embraced the idea, stating that it was so wonderful to see Byron come out of his shell and fulfill his great potential. Emil gave his son several prototypes, which included a jet pack and helmet, as well as a plethora of ray guns and blaster pistols.

Needing only a name to complete his new identity, Byron adopted the alias “Space Cadet”. From that point on, he would try and earn himself a reputation as one of the world’s greatest heroes.

Space Cadet learned the hard way that being a hero was no easy task. On his first “adventure”, he was sorely rendered unconscious by the villainous Prick and Mamma Ries as they robbed one of New York’s finest jewelry stores. To teach him a lesson for trying to thwart their plans, Momma Ries and The Prick stripped Space Cadet nude, and tied him up in one of the city’s less favorable alleys, where he was milked and molested by thugs and low-lives for 2 days and nights. To his relief, the police eventually came to his rescue. Space Cadet had been humiliated, but he had not been defeated.

Still he had lost the equipment his father had given him, and getting it replaced was going to be costly. So he decided to move to Gateway City where he would earn money for his heroics. He became a body-guard for hire.

His most high-profile client was to be the infamous Tobey Tubesteak. While protecting Tobey from the evil Jack the Stripper, Space Cadet encountered Naked Justice and Ghostboy. The three heroes helped one another out and defeated Jack the Stripper, sending him straight to the Fraserview Mental Health Hospital.

Since then, Space Cadet has befriended Naked Justice and Ghostboy, and has offered his help to them on many occasions. Through his work as a body guard, he managed to earn enough money to pay for his replacement equipment.

Recently, Space Cadet has received an invitation to join the Guardians of the Cube from Jeanne Darque. For him, this is the perfect way to prove himself as one of Gateway City’s great defenders.

This invitation coincided with recent power augmentations he received from his father.  Now Space Cadet no longer requires his laser pistols and fancy gadgets when in battle, relying instead on his own ability to wield cosmic radiation at his will.  He has much to learn about his new abilities, but will undoubtedly have the opportunity to do so in Ordovica, the land of the Satyrs.  That is where Space Cadet has traveled to help his new ally Vallan free his people, the Satyrs from the evil clutches of the vile Baron Von Phallus.

Powers and Paraphernalia:

As an athlete, Space Cadet is well versed in numerous forms of hand to hand combat and martial arts. He is a formidable opponent who possess higher than average strength and endurance for a human male of his age, height, weight and build.

Space Cadet wears special contact lenses which allow him to see with infrared, and x-ray vision, again, compliments of his father. They also increase his visual acuity and filter out unwanted radiation on all wavelength spectrums. These contacts have a blue hue to them, thus making it appear that Byron has blue eyes. Coupled with his bleach-blond hair, they give him a rather striking look.

Recently, Space Cadet’s father, Emil Durand, the brilliant scientist conducted several experiments on his son, endowing him with new superhuman abilities.  It now appears that Space Cadet has the ability to project cosmic radiation from his hands and eyes.  The beams are exceptionally destructive and he must control their intensity or risk killing his intended target by accident.

Emil’s experiments also enhanced his son’s physical strength and endurance.  Space Cadet can now withstand incredible pressures without the aid of his special costumes.

It was also Emil’s intention to imbue his son with the ability of flight.  It is still unknown whether or not he succeeded as Space Cadet is still discovering the full extent of his new abilities.

Prior to his new enhancements, Space Cadet possessed no superhuman powers or skills.
He employed gadgetry and equipment in his crime fighting which his father provided.

Space Cadet carried laser pistols, a force field emitter and his rocket pack permitted him to fly at speeds exceeding 100 MPH.  If it turns out that he still cannot fly on his own, Space Cadet may well resort to wearing his rocket pack once more while his father continues his attempts to grant him the power of autonomous flight.

When completely zipped up, his former skin tight, form fitting costume, constructed of unstable molecules, served to insulate him for extreme environmental conditions, thus allowing him to travel in space and even underwater. His costume regulated all body functions and shields him from extreme pressure, heat or cold.

Now Space Cadet has no further need for the protection of this special costume, and wears a regular spandex version of it when fighting crime.

His helmet permitted him to breathe in such conditions as well, and can recycle his oxygen indefinitely.  It is likely that the helmet would still prove useful to Space Cadet should his adventures call him to venture underwater or beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.

Diablo

Real Name: Bruno Ragetti
Aliases: Devil Dong
Occupation: Owner of the One Eyed Snake Nightclub, stripper, Guardian of the Cube and adventurer.
Base of Operations: Gateway city, the One Eyed Snake Nightclub and Darque Manor.
Place of Birth: Gateway City
Known Relatives: Eric Ragetti, a.k.a. Incubus (son), Beverly Ragetti (ex-wife), Pascale Dimorne (wife), Unborn child.
Group Affiliation: The Guardians of the Cube
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual, with some emerging bi-sexual tendencies
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 233 lbs.
Eyes: amber
Hair: black
Penis: 11 inches, cut
First Appearance: Guardians of the Cube #1, volume 1 (1995)
Current Appearances: Guardians of the Cube #1, Guardians of the Cube #2, Guardians of the Cube #3, Guardians of the Cube #4, Guardians of the Cube #5, Satisfaction Guaranteed #3, Satisfaction Guaranteed #4, Boytoon Adventures #1, Striptease #1

History:
Bruno Ragetti lived a happy life with his wife Beverly and their young son, Eric. The couple owned an apartment in the city, and each held good, solid jobs. But Bruno wanted more out of life, and desperately wanted to be his own boss. Against Beverly’s wishes, Bruno quit his job and purchased a nightclub. Business was poor and the bank was threatening to foreclose when Bruno, desperate to keep the One Eyed Snake, decided he needed a gimmick. He began to headline at the club as a stripper, putting on elaborate shows, which soon became the talk of the town. Business boomed, but at a cost: Beverly left Bruno and took their young son with her.

Shortly thereafter, Bruno received a visit from the mysterious Jeanne Darque. She told the skeptical Bruno that he had been chosen to receive the Gift of Power. Bruno soon realized she spoke the truth when the Cube transformed him into Diablo as he performed on stage.

During his initial service as a Guardian of the Cube, Diablo met officier Pascale DiMorne, an ally of the Guardians. The two of them fell in love and dated throughout Diablo’s career as an adventurer.

Diablo served as Darque’s right hand man for several years, until a severe altercation between him and fellow Guardian, Jon Dazy led him to resign his powers as Diablo. As an unexpected side effect of this, his powers were passed along to his now 18 year old son, Eric. Eric Ragetti became Incubus, and assumed his father’s place as a Guardian of the Cube.

Now human again, Bruno Ragetti was free to lead a normal life. He and Pascale were wed in a quiet ceremony, and months later, Pascale announced that she was pregnant.

Bruno had no plans to ever become Diablo again, but in recently, the Guardians of the Cube have fallen on difficult times, and Numa, newly appointed leader of the Guardians, approached Bruno to see if he would consider resuming his powers and identity as Diablo. Given the Guardian’s current circumstances, Bruno accepted and Numa used the Cube to transform him into Diablo anew.

This did not affect Incubus’ powers, and as a result, father and son now have very similar abilities. It is not yet certain if their powers differ in any way.

Diablo has returned to the Guardians of the Cube but hopes he can manage to keep his personal life and family separate from his adventures as a super hero.

Powers and Paraphernalia:
As Diablo, Bruno possesses incredible physical strength, as well as heightened senses, speed and agility. He is able to breathe flame that he can direct at his foes.

When Bruno Ragetti was first transformed into the crimson-skinned Diablo, he was unable to revert to his human form. In later years however, Bruno learned better control over his powers, and was able to manipulate his physical form. He was able to revert to his human form at will, and as Diablo he was also capable of growing wings that permitted him to fly at up to moderate speeds.

Diablo possesses the ability to literally siphon the evil from other beings, and store it within his own person. However, he was never truly able to master this ability, and the results of using this power can be quite unpredictable. Depending on the amount of evil he absorbs, he can become adversely affected by it. The evil can transform Diablo into a monstrous creature, capable of great destruction. Because of this, Diablo prefers not to call upon this power very often.

Real Name: Felix Himner
Aliases: Bareboy, Birthday Suit, Naked Juiciness, NJ
Occupation: Banker, part-time nude adventurer.
Base of Operations: Gateway city, Darque Manor.
Place of Birth: London, England
Known Relatives: Unnamed mother (deceased), Unnamed father, (deceased)
Group Affiliation: Former member of the Unrivaled Alliance, Member of the Guardians of the Cube.
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Homosexual.
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 230 lbs.
Eyes: green
Hair: copper
Penis: 12 inches, uncut
First Appearance: Ecstasy #1(2000)
Origin: Naked Justice #2
Current Appearances: Naked Justice #1, Naked Justice #2, Camili-Cat: Felinoids #2, Guardians of the Cube #1, Guardians of the Cube #2, Guardians of the Cube #3, Guardians of the Cube #4, Guardians of the Cube #5, Rapture #1, Rapture #2, Rapture #3, Naked Justice: Beginnings #1

nj-study-newHistory:
While on a vacation in the deserts of Egypt, a young and adventurous Felix Himner, seeking a break from his harsh and disapproving parents, found himself in the presence of the ancient Pharaoh, King Cock-A-Tut. The Pharaoh endowed Felix with tremendous, ancient power, thus forever transforming him in to the incredibly hung Naked Justice. It is not known why Felix was chosen to receive this power, but one thing is certain, since his transformation, Naked Justice has taken a serious bite out of crime in Gateway City.

Recently arrested for indecent exposure, Naked Justice was thrown into prison. Jeanne Darque, leader of the Guardians of the Cube, busted him out of jail in order to make him a rather unique offer: become a member of the Guardians of the Cube.

Since joining the group, Naked Justice has enjoyed Jeanne Darque’s hospitality, and taken residence in her Manor, the home base of the Guardians. He has also had his name cleared of all charges by officer Pascale Dimorne, an ally of the Guardians.

It was clear from the moment that Naked Justice and Ghostboy met that they were very attracted to one another. The two men eventually became lovers, but their relationship was put on hold when Ghostboy’s body was usurped by the villain called Daddy Longlegs, leaving the heroes’ soul to wander the astral plane.

Naked Justice and the other Guardians of the Cube searched for their teammate for several months, but eventually gave Ghostboy up for dead. A shattered NJ has attempted to move on from the loss, but would not have to do so for long, for Ghostboy’s spirit returned in the body of a young woman, determined to get his male body back from the villain who stole it.

Try as he might, Naked Justice has not been able to be intimate with his lover while he inhabits the body of a woman. This has caused a severe rift between them, and though Ghostboy insists he can understand NJ’s point of view, he secretly resents him for not providing much needed comfort and reassurance.

Naked Justice has recently found his own comfort in the arms of fellow Guardian of the Cube, Space Cadet. Though neither Naked Justice or Ghostboy have ended their romance, whether it endures through this rough patch remains to be seen.

nj-excerpt2_newPowers and Paraphernalia:
Naked Justice possesses heightened senses, agility, strength, endurance and stamina. He is imbued with Egyptian magicks, and this grants him a heightened metabolism that is impervious to most forms of poison and toxins. But perhaps the strangest aspect of his powers is that he can project bolts of lightning from his erect penis!

In recent times, Naked Justice has also learned that he can project his powers through other parts of his body; nipples, hands, feet etc…

Essentially Naked Justice is immortal. Since inheriting his powers from King Cock-A-Tut, he has not aged a single day. It is believed that so long as he has his powers, he will remain forever physically 25 years of age, the age at which he inherited his abilities.

Because his powers are deeply rooted in the ancient magicks of Egypt, the complete limits of his abilities are to date unknown.

Notes:
Naked Justice has a good heart, but is shallow and self-absorbed, and some might say, he has a bit of an overactive sex drive. His relationship with fellow Guardian Ghostboy has motivated some interesting changes in Naked Justice. For the first time in a long while, he actually seems to genuinely care for someone other than himself.

Occupation: Former Graphic artist and designer, now Callboy for the SG Corp.
Base of Operations: Gateway city, the SG Corp Main Branch Building.
Place of Birth: Matanne, Quebec
Known Relatives: Henriette (mother), Regis (father, deceased), Allyson (sister)
Group Affiliation: Former Callboy of the Satisfaction Guaranteed Corporation, now co-owner of it.
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Homosexual.
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 176 lbs.
Eyes: brown
Hair: brown
Penis: 10 inches, uncut
First Appearance: Bagel Beagle #1 (The Buzz, Gay and Lesbian Monthly newsmagazine, issue #1) (1998)
First Class Comics Appearance: Satisfaction Guaranteed #1, Volume #1 (1998)
Current Appearances: Satisfaction Guaranteed #1, Satisfaction Guaranteed #2, Satisfaction Guaranteed #3, Satisfaction Guaranteed #4, Rapture #1

History:
Dane Bernier was a quiet kid. Growing up, he was a devout student of the arts. He went to college and studied Graphic Design, eventually graduating with honors, and going into business as a self-employed Graphic Artist.

Talent was not Dane’s problem for indeed he had plenty of that. What he was less gifted at was managing his funds and small business. Being a kind soul, Dane did a lot of jobs for free, often to his own detriment. Soon the bank was looking to collect on the money they had loaned him. Financial mismanagement soon landed poor Dane’s butt on the streets.

Dane moved back in with his mother and sister in the hopes of getting back on his feet. Several failed attempts left him discouraged and depressed.

It was then that he was approached by David Laburnum, a high ranking executive at the SG Corp. Laburnum offered to bail Dane out of his financial troubles, but in exchange, he would expect Dane to serve as a Callboy for the SG Corp. Dane, being desperate to rectify his situation agreed to Laburnum’s terms.

Soon Dane found himself at a stylish and enormous Manor, the SG Corps’ training facility just outside of Gateway city. There his training began with Mr. Grudge, another official at the Corporation. Dane showed great promise and upon completion of his training, became one of the SG Corp’s most requested Callboys.
While on assignment, Dane met and fell in love with a client named Nathan Tribbs. Tribbs was the first man in many years to treat Dane with respect and genuine affection, a distinct change from his recent treatment at the hands of Laburnum and the SG Corp’s management. Dane desperately wanted to continue seeing Nathan on his own time, but the SG Corp’s policy on such matters was very clear: this was explicitly forbidden.

Desperate to be with the man he loved, Nathan Tribbs used his considerable fortune and bought the SG Corp, making Dane his equal partner and freeing him from his life as a Callboy.

Not wanting to screw up this opportunity, Dane turned management of the SG Corp over to 2 of his most trusted friends, Elias Shelby and Stephane Sol. Shelby and Sol have since implemented several changes within the Corporation which have vastly improved the working conditions of the Callboys it employs.

Dane and Nathan remain together and very much in love. They have plans to get married in the very near future.

Powers and Paraphernalia:
None

Notes:
Dane is kind hearted, but extremely naïve, this is perhaps why the more hard-core clients of the SG Corp are always requesting him. There is something tragic about his character, but his spirit seems indomitable, always ready to overcome any hardship.

Early on in his career as a Callboy, Dane became romantically involved with fellow Callboy, Elias Shelby. Since such affiliations are greatly frowned upon by the officials at the Corp, Laburnum intervened and arranged for the two young men to separate. Since then, Dane and Shelby have gone back to being co-workers and remain good friends.

Ghostboy

Real Name: Peter Goldman
Aliases: Ghosty, Casper, Ghostgirl
Occupation: Guardian of the Cube, Adventurer, former gymnast
Base of Operations: Gateway City, Darque Manor.
Place of Birth: Gateway City
Known Relatives: Sylvia Goldman (mother), Omar Janus (Father), El Toro Janus (Uncle)
Group Affiliation: Member of the Guardians of the Cube.
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Homosexual.
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 175 lbs.
Eyes: brown
Hair: brown
Penis: 9 inches, cut
First Appearance: Cube #1, volume 1 (1995)
Current Appearances: Guardians of the Cube #1, Guardians of the Cube #2, Guardians of the Cube #3, Guardians of the Cube #4, Guardians of the Cube #5, Naked Justice #1, Naked Justice #2, Rapture #3, Boytoon Adventures #1

History:
Peter Goldman was born to Silvia Goldman and Omar Janus, a free-spirited Mediterranean vagabond. Soon after their son’s birth, Omar abandoned Silvia to raise the child by herself. A single Jewish mother, Silvia worked hard to give her son the best education and childhood her meager earnings could afford.

As a young adult, Peter began to train as a gymnast, and soon revealed that he had a natural aptitude for the sport. It was not long after that that Jeanne Darque, wielder of the mysterious Cube, came to see him. The Cube, as it turned out, had selected Peter to receive amazing powers, and thus become one of its Guardians. With his new-found abilities, Peter would henceforth be known as Ghostboy. Since his transformation, Ghostboy has been under the direct guidance of Jeanne Darque, who in turn treats him like a son.

Since meeting Naked Justice, Ghost Boy and the scantily clad hero have become intimate. Their relationship was put on hold after Ghostboy’s body was usurped by the vile Daddy Longlegs. The villain transferred his own essence into Ghostboys’ body, leaving the heroes’ spirit to wander the astral plane until it would presumably die. But Ghostboy’s spirit did not perish. Instead, it found refuge within the body of a recently deceased woman.

Now flesh and blood once again, Ghostboy (who at this point gets referred to as “Ghostgirl”) has vowed to make Daddy Longlegs pay for what he did, and to reclaim his male body permanently.
Since returning to the Guardians of the Cube as in the form of Ghostgirl, Ghostboy has been searching for leads on his male body. Meanwhile, Naked Justice has not been able to get intimate with his lover while he has been trapped in his current female form, and this has caused severe stress on their relationship. Whether the heroes will be able to overcome this obstacle remains to be seen.

Powers and Paraphernalia:
Ghost Boy has the ability to dematerialize his molecules. He can phase through solid objects, simulate flight, and disappear, becoming completely invisible. He is extremely agile and athletic, and continues to improve his hand-to-hand combat skills.

Interestingly enough, in the body of Ghostgirl, Ghostboy has manifested several new abilities. As Ghostgirl, he can project bizarre “energy ghouls” which act like heat seeking projectiles. They are capable of homing in on their target and of correcting their trajectory in order to reach it.

It has yet to be determined if he possesses other new abilities as Ghostgirl, or if those abilities are likely to manifest themselves in his male body, should he ever regain it.

Additional Notes:
Ghost Boy is “out” to everyone but his mother: his mother means the world to him, and Ghost Boy cannot bear the thought of losing her. Silvia is extremely conservative, and has a rather unyielding temper. Therefore, he has always avoided confronting her about his true sexual orientation.

Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3 is in production!

Posted on 8 Comments

Well it’s official: Patrick Fillion is currently hard at work on the long anticipated final chapter of the Camili-Cat: Felinoids series. Issue #3 is starting to take shape, and this has the fans and everyone at Class Comics really excited.

When asked about the story for Felinoids #3, Patrick had this to say. “Felinoids #3 is a story I’ve always known how to conclude. Writing it has come easily, and that’s because I know exactly where I want Cam to go from this point on. It’ll be a new place; one that no longer has him asking “am I the last of my kind?” The Felinoids series already answered that. He now knows that some of his people have survived the war that devastated their home world! That’s really going to change him as a character.”

We can expect to see some familiar faces in this book, such as Locus, Felicia, as well as Captain Jung, Flamer and Disco, the three Bounty Hunters Patrick introduced in Rapture #3. But we will also be treated to a whole whack of new Felinoids — all sorts of different ones: Striped ones, spotted ones (you can see a few of them in the pic posted above!)– it’s going to be a visual orgy for the yes by the time Patrick is through with this book.

We’ll keep you posted on Patrick’s progress, but we expect to see this title hit the stores by the end of 2008.

For more of Patrick’s thoughts on Felinoids #3, check out this article which he posted on his Blog, Boytoons Magazine.
