It’s the dawn of a new age. Where magic has returned and alien life has been proven to exist. Where the history of the human race is now more debated than ever. In this new age came the birth of the superhumans. People gifted with powers and abilities born of magic, science, or of human achievement. New evils rise, ancient evils return, and hidden evils are exposed. In the superpower arms race comes the arrival of a group of youngsters determined to fight for justice-The Guard.
The Guard is now finished with the sixth story. Here’s a quick overview of the six stories.
Case File 001-Rise of the Guard
Its been three years since the dawn of the superhuman age. When a runaway known only as Araminta finds herself the target of mysterious men she is rescued by the worlds first superhero Reina Titán. Araminta is then introduced to a group of teenage heroes who have banded together to take down the terrorist organization known as the Teiwaz. An evil society that has infiltrated the United States government and is kidnapping and experimenting on teenagers to build into a future superhuman army. Only this young group of heroes have what it takes to stop them.

Antoine, better known as Kid Victory, gets the news of a jail break and finds out one of his rogues has decided to return to Kirby City to throw a party. One that includes a few very dangerous individuals, trained mercs, and local thugs looking to have fun. Now the team has to get together, curb the destruction and take out the numerous bad guys. Easier said than done, especially when Kid Victory discovers the real reason behind the assault on Kirby City.

A series of attacks on US government instillations has George Blackwell seeking help from the Guard. This leads to the team of young heroes going up against the ruthless Daga Cartel-the number one criminal empire in Mexico.

This means new weapons, new soldiers and more control of the drug trade throughout the Americas.

Gravity Woman, a black superhuman who can manipulate the gravity around her. Also Ichi Senshi, an Asian martial artist who can create swords from spirit energy. However the weapon Fliopt seeks maybe to much for the team to stop.
Case File 006-Kings, Queens, Knights and Pawns
The evil organization Teiwaz has been running operations on and off throughout Europe and are currently within France for unknown reasons. Their activities have now forced the Guard to take their first trip out of the States to do battle with their enemies. As they begin their investigation they become aware that one of the Teiwaz’s main shot callers is in the country and if they can grab him they will be one step closer to shutting down the whole empire.
