it's caused me some headaches, since if everyone's got a teleportation device and can use it any time, there's hardly anything that would still have to be done the traditional way. People would teleport all the time! :p

I was actually just thinking of that the other day. I guess you could always use certain fail safes though like it's unreliable or can only be used so many times so they prefer to use it only when they absolutely have to, or dangerous if you use it too frequently. I guess if someone could invent a teleporter someone else could invent a device to scatter the signal so you can't teleport too close if they want privacy

There could also be someone who gets motion sickness after using the teleporter.

References for Going Green/Seeing Red or National Disasters


The Ecotist, I imagined the guy being tanned and having blonde hair with just a tint of green to it. Also, built like a tree.

Crime Warp, I imagined him being more of an average looking guy. Plus he provides a nice contrast for Ecotist.

The Grand Canyon

Mt Everest

The Adda River

Mt Rushmore

I wonder what the teleportation effect looks like in Going Green/Seeing Red/whatever. Is it a straight teleport (a la Star Trek teleporters) or portal-based? What does the effect look like when used (such as, if it's portals, what do the portals look like, or is it's straight, does the effect look like Star Trek, Nightcrawler, a flash of light, etc.)?

As far as I recall or have been under the impression, the HA's teleport system make you glowwy and white and disappears you. Crime Warps would probably be black with gold swirls and glowwy and disappear you.

I'm going with white glow for HA, and doing a sidestep in Crime Warp's case, as he is only starting to teleport in my last panel.

But that leads me to my next question: does Crime Warp touch his talisman to teleport, or just think and it works? That would be helpful information for my last panel.

Nah, I'm thinking as long as it's on his person, it's kinda a mental thing.

With my script, I have a few references down that weren't there before, but I think I should ask for some help with others. I can probably do some of them, but I still would want a bit of help, especially as I am not good at drawing locations.

References still needed:
The Spatulator (I can draw it, but also would love to see if others are willing to design him. He's the only hero without a reference)

The minister and couple (the other characters without references. I have a friend who I think I'll ask if she wants to be portrayed as the minister, since she is an ordained minister, but the couple is still very much up in the air)

The church: exterior, “lobby” and main room (I could try and get references, but I really can't draw a church, and I don't know what photos I might be able to grab)

Heroes Alliance meeting room at their headquarters (this one is likely simple, but still is a needed reference, I think)

Heroes Alliance jet interior (yes, they have a jet in my story. I guess I was thinking of the X-Men and the Avengers with that bit of it. Another likely simple reference, but needed)

Bank exterior and, maybe, interior (the interior only shows up on one page, but you never know what references people might want)

Any suggestions from people? If some have already started their pages, I would love to know how they have depicted what's there. I definitely need the reference for the main room of the church as soon as I can, because I do have an artist for the double-page splash, but he wants that reference, which is understandable.

Edited to add:
I found some pictures of church interiors off of Google Images that I think might work kind of well for the main room. As you an see with them, I would prefer a church which is not a cathedral, but then again, a cathedral would better accomodate the fights, so I guess you give and get. What do you think? The photos are linked below.

Picture 1, picture 2, picture 3, picture 4, picture 5

I got a good idea for The Spatulator, if you like.

As for the church interiors, I like the third one best. It's got a nice modern look.

While I'm at it, I got a new design for HUB.

I also think her chair needs a new design, maybe something with plasma cannons that flip out from behind.

Hey cool, I didn't know Hero Machine had pieces like that! *goes to Hero Machine*

OK, I made something:


Of course, the guns and arms are retractable when not in use.

either that or you could have a hover chair that turns into a giant Mecha Warrior… or have I just been playing too much Sonic the Hedgehog? :P

I definitely would like that reference for the Spatulator. And that picture of HUB is pretty cool, plus the chair is amazing.

I drew up a design for the interior of the church, but I may have to wait until Tuesday to upload it, because that's probably the soonest I can get to a scanner. I want a place where the scene with the Spatulator and Oscuro makes sense, and yet I don;t want a place where shadows really overtake it. But my reference is not the greatest. I could just go with one of the pictures above, since it would be really easy to go with a photo as reference.
