Trade: Danielle and Virtus by Speedslide
Trade: Danielle and Virtus
Trade with :icons-d-f-studios:

Danielle loves 1950s rockabilly culture and asked Virtus out for a dance. Seeing his admirable yet poor attempts at it, she decides to take the lead. Those two will be dancing until the cows come... Ahem.

Let me know if you want another trade, hun! This was fun to work on!

Bowman and Quiver by Speedslide
Bowman and Quiver
Real Name: Unknown

Codename: Bowman

Nicknames: None

Occupations: Unknown

Legal Status: Vigilante

Identity: Secret

Nationality: USA

Home Town: Fort Worth, Texas, USA

Born: September 13, 1914

Marital Status: Unknown

Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual

Known Relatives: Unknown

Group Affiliation: Victory Society

Base of Operations: San Angelo, Texas, USA

First Appearance: TBA

Known Superhuman Powers: None

Weaknesses: While he does make use of trick arrows, each modification has to be carefully considered so that the arrow doesn't become too heavy to fly, let alone be released. Physics are physics.

Abilities/Special Skills: Easily one of the greatest archers in the world. He's even able to release several arrows at once (although that cuts the string's strength in half, decreasing for each arrow). Also agile and has natural arm strength due to years of archery.

Languages: Speaks English and Spanish fluently.

Weapons/Equipment: His quiver is filled with arrows for various purposes. These include, but are not limited to:

- Regular arrows: Regular "pointy arrows"
- Whistle arrows:  Arrows that lets out a high-pitched whistling sound as they soar through the air, perfect for signals to comrades.
- Explosive arrows: Arrows with an explosive tip that ignite on impact. However, these are highly dangerous and only used in emergencies.

Personality: Heroic yet with a sense of showmanship.

Personal Interests: Unknown, seems to have a flair for showmanship and a natural affinity for archaic weaponry.

History: The Bowman was first seen in September 1938, using his archery skills to fight crime. But it wasn't until 1941, when he was joined by his young partner Quiver that he became feared by the underworld at large.

The Bowman was a part of the Victory Society between 1941-1945.

While the first Bowman is long retired, there have been several successor to his mantle and it's rumored that he was still training future master archers in the art when he went missing in August 2008...

It's theorized that whoever Quiver was, he eventually took up the mantle as Bowman II and joined up with the ELA in the early 1960s, but that's a story for another day...

Missing since August 2008.

There were lots of archer heroes even back in the Golden Age of Comics, like Alias the Spider from Quality Comics, The Arrow from Centaur Publications... Surprisingly enough, DC's Green Arrow was the only one that I could find with a proper sidekick, Speedy. Yeah, not the most original choice of codenames, but "Quiver" just struck a chord with me. ^_^ It also gave :iconsou1forged: a good laugh, which made me all the more eager to use it. My key rule when it comes to superheroes is: You can't take yourself TOO seriously.

Do be a dear and let me know if there are any trick arrows I should add to their arsenal. But ONLY scientifically plausible ones.

Just a few things I'm working on at my own pace...

:bulletred: VIRTUS #001-005, VOLUME 1: ORIGIN :bulletred:

#001: "Straight out of Svenska Superserier, now in his own series!"
#002: "1% ego trip self biography, 99% made up!"
#003: "All superhero clichés in the same comic book!"
#004: "Sorry, we're all out of taglines!"
#005: "..."


Yes. I am currently working on what I hope to be the first in a longer series about Virtus, who is arguably my main character. I don't really consider it a reboot, as I haven't had that much to show for it... But it does begin, as is the tradition for most superheroes, with an origin story.

:bulletred: CHARACTER CAMEOS IN VIRTUS #001 :bulletred:

Pretty straightforward title, but here comes the fine print.

The catch is, the character must have had involvement with Virtus previously, whether if it's been through group projects such as Deviantart Secret Wars or Heroes Alliance, OC tournaments like AFL, Dollar Fighter and Viper's Colosseum or just some roleplay in comments or notes. That's the only catch. There's no limit on how many characters you can submit (do name them though, it makes it easier for me to keep track), as long as they fulfill this criteria. Heroes, villains, friends, love interests, cartoons, manga, sci-fi, fantasy... All are welcome!

You don't have to worry about continuity, shared universes or vice versa, as the cameo is part of silent dream sequence which is meant as a loving nod to all people that have inspired, supported and rightfully criticized me on dA, Drunkduck, etc. Naturally, I will credit every single character's creator.

:bulletred: SECOND VERSE COMICS - VOLUME 1 :bulletred:

I don't want to reveal too much about this project, but it's going to be a thick one and it involves a lot of what I've already submitted and things still to come for this folder: speedslide.deviantart.com/gall…
