Perfect Iron Age gimmick; give the name to a female character!  :lol:

Gotta love the "Perez meets Jurgens" costume design, too.  "Claremont University"..."Kirby Memorial Hospital"...too much!  Cheesy

The Bronze Age Crusader looks very 1970's.

The Iron Age Crusader better be happy she wasn't created in the 1990's, or she would be wearing a whole lot less and had to get implants  Wink

Bill 9000, this is somewhat scary -- before you uploaded the Iron Age Crusader I was thinking a female Crusader was DUE.  However, you were a generation ahead of my prediction -- I thought the present-day Crusader would be a somewhat-undernourished teenager with a bare-midriff top, similar to DC's Stargirl, Wonder Girl and Supergirl.  (But please DON'T follow this sterotype!)   :wink:

Christine's costume is very sharp, and I love how you incorporated all the classic comic book themes into her history -- super-twins, "Red" and "Blue" versions, brother gone bad, etc.  Keep it up!

Not to worry, Dto ... no bare midriffs. :wink:

Not until the late 33rd century, at least.  :twisted:

And now on to the grim and gritty year 1995 for an encounter with the Dark Age Crusader.



Real Name: Jared Moore
Occupation: Vigilante
Citizenship: United States of America
Home Base: Century City, USA
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 250 lbs.
Eyes: White
Hair: Dark Brown

In 1988, geneticists employed by Dr. Alexander Lord (the psychologist responsible for the mass retirement of American superheroes in 1951) obtained a cell sample of Jim Moore (the Golden Age Crusader). Humiliated over having been proven wrong about his stance on superheroes, Lord financed the creation of a clone of Jim as part of an intricate revenge plot. Over the next five years, Lord's scientists meticulously guided the clone's development, instilling in him a vicious killer instinct that focused on the Moore family. This was achieved by implanting false memories into the clone's mind to make him believe he was Jared Moore, an illegitimate son of Jim Moore who was shunned by his father. However, although Jared exhibited superhuman strength, speed and agility, he had none of Jim Moore's powers over electromagnetic energy. To compensate for this, Lord had Jared rigorously trained in various combat arts, including aikido, kung fu, and traditional boxing. In addition, he was instructed in the use of an extremely diverse array of weaponry, from swords and daggers to the most sophisticated firearms. Lord had Jared released on the public as a vigilante called Bloodfire, planning to have his violent methods of dealing with criminals draw both Kristine Moore (the fifth Crusader) and Scott Moore (the fourth Crusader) into a confrontation with Jared so he could kill them. After a protracted and violent battle with his "relatives", Scott managed to use his telepathic powers to reveal to his foe that his memories were false. Feeling extreme remorse for his actions, Jared abandoned his Bloodfire identity and (at the suggestion of Jim Moore, who "adopted" Jared and thought being a hero would benefit the troubled clone) became the Dark Age Crusader. Upon receiving the star-symbol of Ra from Scott, Jared gained the ability to generate a form of "dark energy" that he could psionically shape into any form he could imagine. More extreme in his methods than his predecessors, Jared Moore took the legend of the Crusader into the 21st century.
