“The project began as the brainchild of Jason Conover, editor of Masked Prejudice and founder of Oxford Comics:
A little over a year ago, five of friends and coworkers came together to brainstorm and collaborate on a superhero universe. All had been long-time comic book readers and coworkers at Midtown Comics. They wanted to take their passion for the genre and create something of their own. As the characters were fleshed out, new talented creators joined their ranks, and their universe took shape, Jason realized the potential for more than just heroes punching villains.
Most of the original characters developed are people of color, members of the LGBT community, or both. As a gay man himself, Jason realized superpowered characters at their most powerless could serve as a compelling metaphor for the experiences of the most commonly disenfranchised. The American political climate is ripe with racial tension, discrimination, and bigotry. The alarmingly real issues of school shootings, police brutality, increasing suicide, and governmental internment lie at the heart of our narrative. Every tale builds a threadwork creating a rich new universe, exploring a tapestry of exciting new characters.” – Via a press release from Editor Jason Conover
