The Bronze City Sentinels, champions of their eponymous city, have gone missing, and four new heroes have been chosen to take their place.
New Sentinels is an ongoing superhero story told through (primarily) five Twitter accounts: One for each of the heroes, sharing their thoughts and feelings, and one “official” account, run by interns, which relates the details of their adventures and battles.
The heroes are:
Collider: Beleaguered atomic powerhouse. She tends to be diplomatic and reasonable, making her the leader by default. Mechanica: Awkward robot. Prefers to be called “artificially sentient. She’s nearly always upbeat and peppy, but gets confused about some aspects of humanity. Doctor Mayhem: Jerkass scientist. Sarcastic, irritable, and abrasive. She tends to conflict with the rest of the group fairly often. Pact: Hipster Wizard. The group’s latest addition, she’s trying to fit in as best she can. Tries to be nice, but doesn’t take Mayhem’s crap.
It’s a quirky, semi-humorous take on superheroes, showing us their story through what the things they choose to tell us.
