Superoon is humanity's protector and stands firm against the attacks of the nefarious Roog!
The esteemed archaelogist George Hamstead discovered the plans for Superoon amongst an ancient factory with technology out of place for the time and far in advance of anything seen since. With the help of his best friend, the millionaire boat builder Lorne Paulson, he built Superoon and the important Roog infiltration detector.
Fate chanced that their two sons, who attended the same high school (and fought over the same girl), would be the best pilots for the battle machine. But how to get the sports-minded Henry and science-inclined Toby to set aside their rivalry over Polly for long enough to do so?
Beside Superoon hovers his powerful Missile Mace, which can strike and return on his command.
I've been working on mecha design for my comic work, but I came to the realization that just like the Japanese robot anime series had to build from simpler designs to more complex ones, I need to do the same. I need to develop a mecha style of my own that builds from a simple base.
That's why Superoon is so simple in design- it has to be something that a team of harried animators can quickly draw so that this week's battle gets on the television in time. I picked the early to mid seventies for the time period.
What I'd like to do is draw a new, slightly more advanced design each week- not necessarily of Superoon- so I can progress just like the mecha anime system did.
