Milton Manners / Prodigy
The Manners family has been a prominent presence in the town of Liberty since it's settlement in 1686. Throughout generations, members of the Manners clan have served as elected officials, business owners and community leaders. In today's Liberty, however, the Milton family is down to two; Mindra and her only son, Milton.
To say Milton Manners has a lot to live up to would be an understatement.
When Milton was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor his happy days would come to an end. His mother would no longer host her book club meetings so Milton's small social circle shrunk to zero. In his solitude Milton turned inward, towards his creation. His Pantheon. He spent almost every waking moment working on his friends' superhero characters and building the fictional world Pantheon lived in.
Not quite. Mindra Manners became overbearingly protective Milton (the sole heir to the Manners' name). She even went so far to home school the boy. Any friend who wanted to see Milton had to come see him.
But essentially, I created him to die. To give his friends the powers they once dreamed of.
I don't! To me he is the soul of The Pantheon Project. The kid who refused to let his dreams go, no matter what. Even turned to them for comfort. For better or worse.
"One supreme fact which I have discovered is that it is not willpower, but fantasy-imagination that creates. Imagination is the creative force. Imagination creates reality." -- Richard Wagner

The series will run six issues and we're creating a major antagonist that will appear in issue #3. However, the character will be profiled in the first issue's supplemental material. Ever wanted to be a bad guy/girl? While you won't appear in story for a little while, you will get a complete artistic makeover and included in the first issue's "coming attractions" section. We design the character, give him/her YOUR name and make it look like YOU! Cool, huh?Estimated delivery:
