Spotlight: For Black History Month
Mugandi, The Spirit of Africa: He's the title pic for this spotlight. Mugandi summons animals spirits of Africa to fight evil. As you can surmise from the picture, he can summon an elephant or a giant snake. He can also summon a lion, or even smaller animals, even a mouse. Mugandi has some natural magics he can also use to defend himself and can communicate with animals as well (though not control them). He works with World Legion based in New York, but takes trips back to Africa to deal with his most hated of criminals, poachers.
Polaran: I didn't get his pic done yet, but I will still tell you about him. He also works for World Legion. His power can instantly reverse any moving object at the exact same speed it was going (just in the opposite direction). As you might imagine, bullets are a bad thing to use on Polaran. He can also reverse any polarity and the hold of gravity on any person or thing. Polaran loves kids and takes a lot time for kid issues and to help the underprivileged.
Free Agents. He and Polaran were my first black characters.
To be a complete universe, it's important that all sorts of races and styles are represented. That's not easy, but it's a task I gladly take on. So far, I think I've been fairly successful and creating a diverse world. As always there is much more to come. Hope you enjoyed today's spotlight!
