Why Aren't These Characters In Play?!?
Where are The FREEDOM FIGHTERS?!? I mean, the stories you could tell! The Freedom Fighters are a government sanctioned superhero group based out of The Pentagon, fighting any menaces, at home and abroad, the government calls to their attention.
Led by The Fighting Spirit of America, UNCLE SAM, who's prone to bouts of madness and rage whenever America feels out of whack. The Fredom Fighters are composed of:
THE HUMAN BOMB, a human bomb!
DAMAGE, another human bomb but wait...this one has super-strength and endurance, to boot. He could blow stuff up all day long!
PHANTOM LADY II, a scantily-clad young lady whose weapons allow her to cast "blacklight." She wast trained in the art of espionage by The Original Phantom Lady, a former U.S. senator's daughter.
THE RAY II, the son of The Original Ray, he's a living solar battery, who much like The Human Bomb and Damage is prone to explosion.
and THE BLACK CONDOR II, he's like some manic-depressive, Native American who works for the government. He flies, too.
So, to recap, that's the spirit of jingoism, three guys who blow up, an exhibitionist and a depressed Native American federal employee.
Can you imagine these guys in foreign lands "peace-keeping?" I can.
I call out to The Great Spirit, Grant Morrison! I beg of you! Take these characters into your Scottish heart and give them a proper home! Now, more than ever, the world needs Morrison on The Freedom Fighters.
