I gotta go to sleep. Have fun speculating about THIS one, folks! ^_^

Yeah, this is some fairly old (and not particularly quality-controlled since it was just done to get the looks down) art admittedly - obviously done before Lock Blue Up given we saw Protocol in that chapter and saw Marina in the Fontainebleu one. Speaking of, yeah, if you've been reading Wright as Rayne that she's working for Protocol has been established there already, albeit not with any details given.

Of course beyond those two we have four other faces here, and I imagine some are more eye-catching than others...

It's a little difficult to speak in terms of specifics given we'll be giving a proper introduction to the group in the next chapter, including who they are and what their role in things is, but does give something to mull over before we get there. We were trying to communicate a lot of aspects of them pretty much from a surely visual level, curious how well that works; we're really hoping that people enjoy the group as a whole, we've got a lot in mind for them and we're hoping they're really going to catch on. Going to be very central to the next story arc.

One thing I was aiming for with coloring the lot of them was trying to give each a very distinct color scheme, real multicolored with the costumes. Think it worked out pretty well I'd say, feel like each character's design feels pretty appropriate to what they are and hopefilly just on a visual level will communicate a lot.

I guess I can go ahead and bring up Marina's involvement - the group went through a few different concepts alongside the creation of Protocol (that'll probably be stuff we won't get into for a loooong time since as said, they're central to the arc and all so don't want to rush into spoilers), but as it started to come together we were really wanting to work in a magical presence. Some ideas were batted around on that for a bit, then I threw out Marina on a whim and after some talking it over we decided she was a good fit. Of course, more to say on that once we actually get into who the group is exactly.

Heheh... Yeah, this filler was all Martin's idea; this group'll be playing into the next story arc pretty heavily and thought it'd be neat to show them off beforehand. Obviously we've already seen a few of them.

Yeah, this is one of those weird things to discuss since I dunno how much I wanna spoil before we get into it. Especially since there's a clear elephant in the room with this team.

I kinda like the idea that the CANDLE twins don't read the comments. Given Marvelous Man actually DID read the comments now kinda curious if I should've kept him around and have him get more and more pissed off when comments needled him before finally blowing up at the readers and marching off. That might've been kinda fun.

I dunno if I have a favorite of this group in terms of looks... It's probably either Marina or that gent in the middle with the green skin and golden armor. I mean, happy with how the whole group came out, just dunno which I'm most fond of. ^^ Who has a preference?

These aren't new Heroes.This looks like the universe's Justice League! That likely broke apart later. 'Cause Qrime Qure is right there... >.>

I kinda have been curious if Protocol might work as a Big Good, yeah. Would have to see how it functioned in practice....

I really like the peacekeepers, they do look cool.

But let me tell you more on my thoughts about them.

I don’t know how I feel about Marina, on one hand, it’s all ways good to have one magic user in a superhero team, but Marina is kind of nuts and what about Fontainebleu’s book?

I mean to Marina and all the other guys and girls that was there to get the book, all they know it was destroyed they all saw it, they did not know that the kids took pictures of the book and ergo can make a new Fontainebleu book.

Which if you think about is very funny I mean all those witches, warlocks and cyborgs there and no one thought the kids had a camera phone.

Hell even Martina Ferguza said that she would use a translation app to be able to read the book.

And now I can just picture everyone that was there to get the book, finding out that the kids took pictures of the book with their camera phone, and everyone is just facepalming themselves feeling very dumb right now.

All right now to this Qrime Qure looking guy, I think he is not the original Qrime Qure, as you said about the original Qrime Qure being inspired by venom, that got me thinking about Carnage.

As a lot of people know Carnage was made when the venom symbiote gave birth to a new symbiote and that symbiote bound itself to the psychopath known as Cletus Kasady.

So I think just like with the venom symbiote, Qrime Qure symbiote gave birth to a new symbiote and it made this guy.

Now for the plant guy, I think he looks good but if I can say one thing maybe make him a bit more plant like, like make his plant/moss shoes more into tree stumps or something.

Anyway I have a feeling despite him being scary looking; he is going to be a big softy on the inside.

Okay now it’s time for Protocol, I like her look, and just like Val’s costume Protocol’s has a good sci-fi feel too it.

But what I really liked is that on the back of her hand is a little face; I hope her hand comes off and becomes a little robot.

Now for the guy with the wrecking ball on his shirt, out of all of the peacekeepers costumes this is the most dull sorry to say, it just kind of looks boring.

Now if I had to guess wrecking ball guy must have well wrecking powers and if so why not make his costume construction worker or demolition worker themed.

And now for the last one, that superhero looks like she could be miss tickle’s sister, or she is miss tickle and you made her into an AR superhero.

Anyway that’s my thoughts on the looks of the peacekeepers, I can’t wait to see them in action.
