CONCEPT: WARRIOR CHARACTER

In my sequel series, one of the main characters is a warrior both physically and mentally. He would come from a planet in which resources are scarce and it’s every man for himself, which molds him into a brutal individual. In terms of personality, he would be a person who is hopelessly addicted to fighting, which causes him to constantly look for a good battle. His powers are specifically made for combat because he is superhumanly strong and resilient, which would make him like a berserker. This would make him nearly unstoppable, being able to ignore injuries and keep fighting even if he loses a limb or two. His character development will revolve around being able to overcome his warrior mindset and acknowledge that saving a life is better than taking a life. Essentially, he will start as an anti-hero and evolve into an actual superhero.

WRITING UPDATE: NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL

I have started another superhero graphic novel project tonight and I am rather excited about it. This one will exclusively be a graphic novel script and I intend to submit it to a comic book company in the near future. I will work on it until there is enough material to get the company started and then I will contact them. Wish me luck and I will keep you updated.

CHARACTER REVIEW: AEGON TARGARYEN VI (YOUNG GRIFF)

Aegon_VI_con_Compañía_Dorada_by_Diego_Gisbert©I have been reading the Game of Thrones books and I have a few theories about the mysterious character who calls himself Aegon Targaryen VI, son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell. There have been countless issues and theories revolving around the character because Aegon was supposedly dead before the events of the books, but in A Dance with Dragons it was revealed that he may in fact be alive. The reason for this is because the spymaster of King’s Landing Varys claimed be replaced Aegon with an impostor infant who was killed instead of him. Then after sending him into hiding in Essos, Varys had secretly been training Aegon for his future role as King of the Iron Throne.

In my own opinion, I believe “Aegon” may be an impostor raised to believe he was the real Aegon. If Varys wanted to convince the Seven Kingdoms that he was the real Aegon when the time came, he would have just taken Aegon into hiding instead of replacing him with another infant. That way, the Seven Kingdoms wouldn’t know his final fate until he revealed himself. Also, even though “Aegon” has been trained all his life to rule and has all the necessary skills to be King, there is no guarantee that his descendants will be good kings or queens, which would ultimately doom Varys’s plan.

There have been multiple hints that “Aegon” may not be a Targaryen at all, but a survivor of House Blackfyre, who were close relatives of House Targaryen who tried to overthrow them multiple times. While it was mentioned that the male line of House Blackfyre is extinct, they made no mention about the female line of House Blackfyre. With this in mind, “Aegon” might be either the son or descendant of the female line of House Blackfyre.

Since House Blackfyre tried to overthrow the Targaryens on multiple occasions, the current conditions of the Seven Kingdoms would greatly work in their favor for a variety of different reasons. First, the War of the Five Kings has made the Seven Kingdoms weaker and more vulnerable than they have ever been, which will make them easier to conquer. Also, since the Targaryens were the only ones standing in House Blackfyre’s way of inheriting the Iron Throne, this would also be beneficial for them because the only known Targaryen is on the other side of the world and unable to oppose them.

In general, I cannot wait to find out the truth (if there even is one) about “Aegon” when the new book comes out.

WRITING UPDATE: SEQUEL SERIES (CHAPTER 10)

I have started the next chapter of my sequel series and this is going to be one of the most significant ones in the book. The reason for this is because the main characters will be introduced to one another for the first time and learn the reason why they were chosen and assembled. The characters’ reactions to their mission are various with some eager for a fight while others have doubts on their capabilities as superheroes. This will produce a complex emotional chemistry within the team when they realize the scale of their mission and the possibility that they could die.

WRITING UPDATE: SEQUEL SERIES (CHAPTER 9)

I have just started writing another chapter on my sequel series and this is where the plot begins to thicken. After recruiting new super humans to their cause, one of the main characters becomes conflicted with his mission. This is where he starts to form doubts about forming a new generation of superheroes and questions if their ultimate goal will be successful. Due to these doubts, there will be disfunction amongst the heroes’ ranks that will give their superhero careers a rocky start. The heroes’ relationship as a team will be able to grow and evolve as a result of this.

WRITING UPDATE: A HERO’S JOURNEY BEGINS

I have started writing the introductions of each of the main characters in my sequel series. They each come from different backgrounds and are the most unlikely heroes at first glance. The reason for this is because even though they each possess immense power, they have personalities that set them apart from your average hero with some reluctant to take up the mantle while others desire a good fight. Now, with the interstellar government on the brink of war and consumed by chaos, their hero’s journey begins with their recruitment. They will each be tested and a certain connection between them will be revealed.
