On hiatus - next update October 6 2010...
Oz Magellan: is the Australian based Magellan group (and as mentioned in the History, there are various Magellan groups around the world). In the course of the past few chapters we've met Captain Victoria plus Red Centre and The Man Who Can. This update introduces two more Oz Magellan members - Tassie Tigress and Good-Guy. For those readers unfamiliar with Australian fauna the Tasmanian Tiger (or Thylacine) was a carnivorous marsupial found on the island state of Tasmania... until European settlers wiped it out in the early 1900s. Taking the code-name of a now extinct species might, of course, not prove the wisest of decisions perhaps...! Good-Guy is derived from one of the first super-hero characters I ever created (circa 1993!) and he finally gets his day in the sun... more info on him (and his story origins), Tassie Tigress and the rest of Oz Magellan as the story progresses.

Spectacle Island: this is an actual island located within the extended Sydney Harbour. Anyone who reads other superhero comics would know that the headquarters of super groups tend to come in for extensive punishment from the bad guys... so why would they put their HQ in the middle of a densely populated city where people are placed at risk during an attack? At least on an island it reduces the threat to bystanders since there are none. I was going to base Oz Magellan on Cockatoo Island - which is near Spectacle Island and much bigger. Having been there I can say Cockatoo Island is awesome but it is probably too big for an outfit the size of Oz Magellan... Spectacle Island is more modest but is still large enough for a base with VTOL airpads, heli-pads, docking for boats and subs plus easy defence. Neat, huh?

Good-Guy: today's update features Oz Magellan's Good-Guy (aka Jacob Twain... I did say something different in the forum but changed my mind - I'm fickle like that). His power is light based and as we'll see over the course of the story it has some interesting properties.
Things get bad for Good-Guy!
There be monsters!: today's update gives us as good a look as we're going to get of this story's main protagonists, at least for a while. There's an interesting story about the genesis of these characters... I'll have to tell it to you sometime!
