Not an IT by BuddhatheBob Not an IT by BuddhatheBob
This is my final project for HL Art summer homework :phew:

This is an almost-canon (not sure if I'm gonna keep it) spin-off of BlueJay that takes place in the future after both BlueJay and Momentum have passed on.


In the future, not long after R.J. has died after taking over the Brotherhood, the organization Black Plague released a mass dose of their venom to the world population. The Brotherhood had been working on an antidote to the Black Plague’s venom and was able to get it to most of the inflicted population shortly after the outbreak, but the venom’s source has not been identified and it continues to infect new individuals and worsen the symptoms of those who are still inflicted.

A rogue branch of the Brotherhood that disbanded from the main organization due to disputes over handling genetic modifications of Brotherhood operatives developed a project involving 12 supers and named it PROJECT OLYMPUS (because the 12 operatives were given codenames corresponding with the 12 main gods of Greek mythology). This project used illegal genetic modification to modify the operatives from birth to become almost immortal, and this causes the operatives to be feared by the general populace and looked down upon by the main Brotherhood operatives.

The main storyline follows the story of ARES, the ninth operative who is renowned for being violent and elusive in its efforts of purifying the inflicted.


Anyway, this is the character I was talking about making androgynous a while back.
Here's a little bio on its personality and abilities so that you understand the comic more (I say "it" because i can't reveal its gender):

ARES, on the surface, appears to be a ruthless and sociopathic at a first glance. It allows for no mercy when dealing with enemies, and never sticks around the citizens of the city it protects for too long. ARES is actually extremely insecure about its looks and powers and is mentally vulnerable.
It acts out violently to conceal its fear of rejection, and it wears concealing clothing and refuses to reveal its gender to anyone because of its insecurity over its looks (though unless it has its powers going it does not look intimidating).
It refers to itself as an “it,” and a “monster” for this reason. Even with it having a violent demeanor, ARES is really a gentle person at heart, and this is seen the most when it rescues 5 year-old Emily Whurst from her inflicted mother. After this ARES allows Emily to accompany it and becomes an older sibling figure to her (though soon after it meets her older brother and develops feelings for him).

Though all 12 operatives of PROJECT OLYMPUS have superb stealth, ARES is the best at it (mostly because of its reclusive personality). It earned the codename ARES because its powers manifest themselves in the form of various blades and such protruding from its body.
Its favorite to use are those that lend itself to more of a scythe shape. It also, like most Brotherhood operatives, its senses and physical capabilities are enhanced, as well as its intelligence. Unlike most Brotherhood operatives however, ARES tends to be more destructive in its fighting style, especially when its angry.

Hope that helps, and hope you enjoy.

I'd rather you not, just because this is a concept I might plan on using. You can paraphrase if you want, but please don't use the exact words :D
