naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (Maniacal Laughter)
Spambots have been getting distinctly cooler names lately.

Last month it was Donovan Winters, who sounds like a mega-businessman with delusions of villainy a la Lex Luthor (or Derek Powers, for the Batman Beyond fans). A toxic waste spill mutates several of his flunkies, causing him to investigate the unique properties of his firms' industrial sludge upon his own metabolism, giving him the ability to, say, shoot glowing green beams from his eyes and also fatally mutate the DNA of any person he comes in contact with.

This was followed up by a mass emailing from Dante Noble and his sister, Star Noble, who are clearly the heroes of the piece.

I see Dante as the chipper young upstart who begin the series full of hope and derring-do, and progressively becomes more and more hardened by his hellish descent through the levels of human misery and corporate intrigue he has to slog through to bring justice to his benighted hometown.

Star comes in partway through, once he's hit bottom and acquired a cool facial scar. She provides his anchor in times of flux and trouble, and her own bright and cheerful nature serve as a beacon of hope to the city's downtrodden underclass. Her idealism keeps Dante from paving his own road to Hell with good intentions; she keeps him on the straight and narrow.

Now we have Isis Kristál, who is a stripper with a heart of gold and a yen to someday open her own new-age bookstore/massage parlor. The same freak meteor shower that killed her parents out in the Arizona desert gave her strange occult powers, which she uses to combat the forces of evil in her hometown. She is rivaled by Puma Suede: stripper by day, venom-clawed cat burglar by night. She dances at all the good clubs, hoards diamonds, and steals hearts (and, cat-style, leaves the rest lying on the rug beside the bed), and she really ought to be spade.

How this ties in to the whole Winters/Noble rivalry is yet to be revealed.

See? I really want to do something with this. I think this year's NaNoWriMo novel is writing itself as we speak.

In honor, I will have to include a giant robot called SPAMBOT. Perhaps built by an angry ex-Winters employee seeking technopathic vengeance on the corporate scum who ruined him. I'll save that for the team-up issue.
