    A lot of the the connections between characters in the PSU are based on which companies the characters were published by. In Masquerade's series we saw a lot of her fellow Nedor heroes, like Black Terror, Fighting Yank, and Pyroman, and we've seen that these guys had pretty good relationships. The "Super Mystery Men" all appeared in Ace Publications, who's main title was "Super Mystery Comics." 'Devil, Silver Streak, and The Ghost all appeared in "Silver Streak Comics" from Lev Gleason Publishing. Almost none of these characters ever actually appeared together in stories ("Prize Heroes vs. Frankenstein" and "Daredevil Battles Hitler" being some of the rare exceptions). Still, it makes sense to me that the characters have a closer association with the other heroes from their respective original publishers than with the characters from other companies.

    That was my next question; whether they were actually a team "back in the day".

    So it's a Watchmen kind of team. Versions of a bunch of heroes who are really only connected by having been part of the same company decades ago.

    If that's their only common link, I don't see the point of keeping them together.

    I agree they need more screen time.

    I thick a big shots tittle could be fun as written by someone like Joe Casey. He could do a weird supersticious kind of thing.

    You know something? Oddly enough, these three characters don't excite me in the least and I actually wouldn't mind seeing them killed off toward the end of chapter 2 or sometime in chapter 3, but if they had a limited series I would still buy it since it's DE and all.

    Silverstreak, The Ghost, Man-Cat and Pyroman need to be touched upon soon in miniseries, all of which are amazing characters who could "sell" books (hopefully).

    Seven books out this week, but no PSP or Terror among them. Drag.

    Actually, it's probably just to get the scheduling back on track. I feared July would be slow, but I'm thinking August might be like Christmas in summer.

    In that same article he mentions a teamup as well as potential spin offs. So I think we will be hearing more about Project Superpowers soon. I can't wait to see who gets a solo series or mini.

    I said earlier that the July solicitations would be either feast or famine for us.

    Looks like the latter. The preview on newsarama includes no PS material. You'd think they'd include the start of a new series among its top draws.

    We'll see.

    Moving forward after this final battle, the heroes established by Ross, Krueger and company won’t be facing careers full of busting bank robbers so much as they’ll struggle with finding their place in a world where they hold more power than anyone could or should have. “Not all these characters have reabsorbed their personal lives as they used to have them, and they’re returned to a world that didn’t know superheroes or has forgotten them. Much of what they have is each other,” Ross explained.
    /
    Now with the characters polished and powered up from their Golden Age roots, all that’s left is for fans to make known which characters they’d like to see take the lead in the next chapter of “Project Superpowers.”
