Magniloquence the Superheroine
New readers start here
Magniloquence the Superheroine is not your typical superheroine comic book filled with action and adventure. This comic is primarily a series of lighthearted and funny vignettes showing the “sturm and drang” of superheroic life and romance for our heroine. While the protagonist does indeed have supervillaines and supervillains to combat, violence is of the soap suds variety and usually occurs offscreen hidden by 1960's style "bim/bam/bop" FX.
The comic follows the antics and antipathies of Magniloquence the Superheroine, a mature lady with typical super powers: she is strong, has skin of steel, and can fly. However, she is also incredibly near-sighted and must always wear her prescription combat goggles to see. Living up to her name, she is a magniloquent, commanding, bigger than life character. She is lawfully good with black and white morals; therefore she is charitable, she is chaste, and she is diligent in bringing evil doers to justice. To pay the bills [since the superheroing allowance was eliminated during recent Wonder Falls budget cuts] she has a real world job: she is the author of Pricilla’s Pearls of Common Courtesy, a Dear Abby/Emily Post/Miss Manners-like column in the local newspaper.
Her super-friends are Ampére, Kinematic Man, and Six Shooter. Ampére is a superheroine who is slinky, sexy, smooth, and shocking. Kinematic Man is a warm, fuzzy, calm, and quiet man who has super speed. Six Shooter is a good ole boy and is the fastest gun in the West.
They all live in the City of Wonder Falls, Texas. Wonder Falls is a small West Texas town with the world's tiniest skyscraper, the world's only known Cactus and Rose Garden, and a two block long downtown. Everyone meets for coffee or tea in Buck’s Star Café or Irene's Ice Cream Parlour on the town square during the week and for picnics at the Gazebo on Sunday afternoons to hear the high school band play jazz or Broadway show tunes.

As for the rest, well, we all will discover it as we go along.
