ABC's of Crimsonstreak: Letter H

H is for Heroic Legion.

A superhero universe wouldn't be complete without a superteam or supergroup. In the world of I, Crimsonstreak, the Heroic Legion stands in for the Avengers and the Justice League of America.

For the most part, the Legion is an effective group of like-minded superheroes, but on occasion it can be disrupted by disagreements or get bogged down in bureaucratic nonsense. It's not a group you sign up for; it's more of a "don't call us, we'll call you" operation.

The Heroic Legion serves as a liaison between the superhero community and world governments, where it works in various capacities to support global initiatives and find a voice for those who don't have one. They've also drawn up protocols for handling larger threats such as an alien invasion, though the Legion perhaps overestimated its own ability to handle such a crisis.

Several of the main characters in the book are members of the Heroic Legion, including Crimsonstreak, Colonel Chaos, Miss Lightspeed, and the Crusading Comet.
