THE STATUS QUORUM



  
THE STATUS QUORUM ARE FICTIONAL PROTECTORS OF THE PAPERVERSE.  THEIR JOURNEYS TO OTHER PLANETS, DIMENSIONS AND PLANES OF EXISTENCE ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR MINIMAL SCIENTIFIC FRICTION AND MAXIMUM CONCEPT-CROP YIELD.

  THE TEAM AT THE BEGINNING OF  the filth # 3 COMPRISES:

  ALPHA SAPIENS: IS BILL TOMNEY, A EDUCATIONALLY-SUBNORMAL CLEANER WHOSE SIMPLE BRAIN ALLOWS HIM TO PLAY HOST TO THE TIME-TRAVELLING MICRO-CITY OF THE MORLOCKOI.  THIS MINUTE, UTOPIAN SOCIETY OF TOMORROW TRAVELS BACK IN TIME TO TAKE OVER BILL'S HEAD.  BY ENHANCING HIS ABILITIES AND USING THE NOW-SUPER-INTELLIGENT ALPHA-SAPIENS AS A MESSENGER, THE LITTLE VISITORS FROM THE FUTURE GO ABOUT THE BUSINESS OF MAKING HUMAN SOCIETY BETTER AND MORE EFFECTIVE.  ALPHA SAPIENS PRIMARY MISSION IS TO ARRANGE CURRENT EVENTS SO THAT THE WORLD OF TODAY WILL EVENTUALLY SHRINK AND BECOME THE PERFECT, LOVING WORLD OF THE MAJESTIC, MINATURIZED MORLOCKOI!!!

  ULTRA-HUMANITARIAN: THIS BUDDHIST SUPERHERO IS AN AVATAR OF THE BODDHISATVA AVALOKITESHARA AND HAS VOWED TO USE HIS 'SIDDHIS' OR SUPERPOWERS TO RID THE EARTH OF THE SO-CALLED FOUR SORROWS OF EXISTENCE - HUNGER, SICKNESS, OLD AGE AND DEATH.  SO FAR, ONLY HUNGER HAS PARTIALLY SUCCUMBED TO THE MIGHT OF ULTRA-HUMANITARIAN BUT HIS FIGHT CONTINUES UNDAUNTED. HIS STARE CAN SHAME A MOUNTAIN RANGE, HIS ANGER CAN TURN THE SUN TO WATER! THANK GOD HE’S ON OUR SIDE!

  DARK STRANGER: THIS SINISTER LORD OF NIGHT AND FLIES BASED HIS WHOLE MODUS OPERANDI ON THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE SWARMING INSECTS HE FOUND FEASTING ON THE CORPSES OF HIS PARENTS AFTER RETURNING FROM SUMMER CAMP ONE YEAR TO FIND THEM DEAD - THEIR BODIES FOUGHT OVER BY FIVE SEPARATE SERIAL KILLERS, FIVE UNDYING MANIACS DARK STRANGER HAS VOWED TO DESTROY!

  ZUR-VANN: ONE OF MANKIND'S OLDEST GODS, ZUR-VANN HAS RETURNED FROM A 6,000 YEAR LONG MERCY MISSION INTO SPACE, ONLY TO FIND HIS MIGHTY RACE LONG DESTROYED. SOLE SURVIVOR OF A TRIBE OF ANCIENT MAN-GODS WHO ONCE TAMED THE PRIMAL EARTH, ZUR-VANN NOW FIGHTS AGAINST THE FORCES OF CHAOS WHICH THREATEN EVERYDAY LIFE IN OMNITROPOLIS!

  WOMANITE: WOMANITE IS A NEW ELEMENT: A SOFT MINERAL SUBSTANCE, CREATED IN HIS LAB BY PROFESSOR MERVIN COYLE. A LONELY BESPECTACLED LOSER, COYLE SOUGHT TO CREATE HIS OWN SEXY, SYNTHETIC COMPANION BUT INSTEAD PRODUCED THIS ULTRA-MILITANT FEMINIST HEROINE. WOMANITE HAS ONLY ONE WEAKNESS AND THAT IS ANTI-WOMANITE - A LIVING SUBSTANCE CREATED TO DESTROY HER BY THE INSANE PROFESSOR COYLE, HER ENDURING ENEMY. IF ANTI-WOMANITE EVER TOUCHES WOMANITE THE WORLD WILL EXPLODE AND POSSIBLY THE UNIVERSE AS WELL.

  MACHINE GIRL: TESS BRADLOCK WAS ONCE A PROMISING YOUNG GYMNAST UNTIL THE HORRIFIC CAR CRASH, WHICH LEFT HER FATHER IN A WHEELCHAIR AND LOVELY TESS BURNED BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION AND CRIPPLED FROM THE ANKLES UP. THE DISTRAUGHT DOCTOR BRADLOCK INVENTED AND BUILT THE WIND-UP 'MACHINE GIRL' SUIT WHICH ALLOWS TESS TO MOVE FREELY AND 'HELP PEOPLE'. ONLY DAD CAN FIX THE SUIT WHICH RUNS FOR FIVE HOURS BEFORE NEEDING 'TINKERING'. MACHINE GIRL’S PONYTAIL IS MADE OF LIVING FIBRE OPTIC FILAMENTS WHICH RESPOND TO TESS' CONTROL AND CAN BE USED EITHER AS A DEADLY WEAPON OR AS A HANDY COMPUTER INTERFACE!

  THE SEVENTH MEMBER OF THE STATUS QUORUM - AND ITS FIRST CHAIRMAN - IS SECRET ORIGINAL - NOW TRAPPED IN THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL WORLD AS THE FIRST LIVING BEING TO TRAVEL FROM FICTION TO REALITY.  CRUSHED AND FOLDED INTO A WHEELCHAIR BY THE IMMENSE STRESSES OF HIS PASSAGE FROM THE 2-D WORLD OF THE PAPERVERSE, SECRET ORIGINAL IS NO LONGER AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE STATUS QUORUM!
