Hey Ya'll! The Southern Sentinels are a'comin!
30 Dec 2021 (9 Jan 22 Update)
When things start gettin' bad in the 'ol South of the United States, well, people take things into their own hands. Sometimes that's a good thing, most of the time it turns out bad, but for a band of unique and super-powered Southern heroes calling themselves the Southern Sentinels, it was destiny!
Led by an ex-football player codenamed 'Alabama', the team takes care of its southern neighbors and makes sure that justice is done aright. This team is known as a 'superhero registration success story' wherein the team formed up under the premise of the Superpowers Registration Act. The team, although 100% unique in their own ways, all believe in one thing - taking care of the South. Since no other super teams seem willing to help as much in the region, the Southern Sentinels will take charge and show the world not to mess with the South!
Over the next month or so, we'll be working on the individual characters and the team. Keep checking back on the 'Southern Sentinels' to see our progress! Let's get 'er done!
UPDATE (9 Jan 22): The Southern Sentinels are done! CHECK THEM OUT NOW! This team's a rearin' to git goin'!

Another major milestone has been achieved: 500 CHARACTERS in the Major Deej Universe! 500 CHARACTER ACHIEVEMENT: UNLOCKED!
Our 500th character was Sister of the Earth, but what's more amazing is that at the time of this post, we've already completed 502 characters! We were so focused, we shot past the milestone! We are now well on our way towards the massively monumental, mega-cool 550th character count (557=total MDU)!
As such, the MDU's infrastructure database of characters (DOC) is quickly being finalized as part of our Phase I efforts. Eventually, all these amazing characters will begin to appear in the pages of our Major Deej Comics titles as part of our Phase II efforts...all coming SOON (tm) (~2022)!

The Arcane Sisterhood is BACK once again!
21 Oct 2021 (UPDATED: 8 Nov 21)
Labeled as witches and hunted down since the 1400s, these women dared to change the world for the better - with magical women in charge of the planet instead of men! This placed them not only against the world of man, but the elders of their own original order, The Conglomerate! After being destroyed and/or transmutated by the Conglomerate's Knights Arcanus of that era, the Sisterhood slept...until recently! They've arisen and intend to continue in their venture to put women as the leaders of the planet...after they get their revenge against the Knights Arcanus and the Conglomerate of course!
For the next few weeks, the MDU will be working on and finally creating its newest villainous group: the Arcane Sisterhood! Check out the "What's News?" section for updates as well as the Arcane Sisterhood's main page!
UPDATE: 8 Nov 21 - WE'RE DONE! The Arcane Sisterhood is complete! Jump in and check out the amazing entries to these unique storied characters! Sometimes sisterhood is good; this one is BAD!
HAPPY 14th ANNIVERSARY, ARACHNOKNIGHTS!
21 Oct 2021
Its been 14 years since that day on October 22nd in 2007 that a strange villain group came into existence called the 'Knights of Arachnos' (yes, the old webpage lives (for now)) which is now called the "Arachnoknights"!
Back in the day, this group's creation was inspired by Matt "Positron" Miller and NCSoft's Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG), 'City of Heroes' and its new villain creator game update. As a result, Lady Arachnida was created and made to be the first leader of one of several other ' X of Arachnos' teams. In 2012 the game died, but the characters and the idea lived on. With a complete overhaul of its 'Lieutenants' and a redesign of their troopers, these creepy folks became a renewed part of the Major Deej Universe...and became one of the most audacious villain groups in the MDU!
Picture Below: Knights of Arachnos (October 2007)
Although the team is now led by Lord Arachnid, Lady Arachnida is still in the group as the 2nd in command. The characters that make up this team each have an incredible back story and a powerful array of abilities and weapons, making a hero battle with the Arachnoknights quite epic when it does happen! Soon (tm), stories will be written in the Major Deej Comics and more will be learned of their desire for domination!
Picture Below: Knights of Arachnos (2012)
With that, join us on Friday, the 22nd of October in wishing our spidery villains a spiteful 14th anniversary!
What do YOU think about the Arachnoknights? Leave your comments in the 'Latest' section above and let us (and them) know where you stand with spiders or villains or...well, maybe with a team that seems to like red and black a tad too much!

WE NEED TO FIGHT THIS WAR
It's the bloody CRIMSON again!
13 Oct 2021 (Updated: 29 Oct 21)
Just when you thought is was safe enough from COVID-19 to go out Trick-or-Treating, the CRIMSON come back! The Crimson is an international consortium of vampiric 'covens' that actually work regionally, but thanks to today's modern technology, they're all connected like never before! Using social media, video monitoring and the ever-changing state of regional social issues, the Crimson's vampires are thriving in a buffet-level environment like never before! They still, as always, operate in the shadows, but these days, they are no longer hiding in caves or basements, but in mansions, social clubs and castles! They've also learned the value of money and more importantly, its power and influence in helping the Crimson getting what they want: more tasty humans to feed on!
Over the next few weeks, the Crimson's characters will finally get their day in the (moon)light! Check out the Crimson's main page and read up on the new character entries as they are added. Look for new entries via the "What's News?" section! UPDATE: 29 Oct 21: DONE!!

Homeless. Disadvantaged. Hobo. Bum. Street trash. Downtrodden. THE TRODDEN. These are the names given to the thousands of poor and homeless people in the San Francisco Bay area. Even though the thoughtful folks of 'Frisco like to display their 'kindness' by social media streamed hand-outs and politicians pontificate about the money they need to 'help' their district's disadvantaged, there's only one small group that actually goes out of its way to TRULY help and protect their fellow homeless; they are simply known as 'The Trodden'.
Over the next few weeks, the Trodden's characters will finally get their day in the sun! Check out their individual, heroic team page or watch the "What's News?" section for their NEW! entry notifications!

Our 450th character was Doc Saw, but what's more amazing is that at the time of this post, we've already completed 467 characters! We were so focused, we shot past the milestone! We are now well on our way towards the massively monumental, mega-cool 500th character count (532=total MDU)!

Number 500, here we come!
Millenia ago, the elder gods ruled the Earth in a majority of the world's regions. In the Pacific Ocean region, Pele, goddess of volcanoes and fire and the creator of the Hawaiian Islands, was one such elder god. Another god, Milu, was the god of the dead and ruler of Lua-o-Milu (equivocal of Hell for Polynesians).
In the MDU, Milu attempted retribution on Pele for past slights. Milu not only failed, but was imprisoned deep in the Marianas Trench. Milu recently freed himself from captivity, obsessed with exacting vengeance on Pele and any that dared stand in his way.
The MDU's Milu amassed armies of undersea followers using magically or artificially enhanced, super-powered warlords as his captains. With his army, Milu waged war against Pele...and won. A dying Pele imparted part of her powers to several human Polynesian 'heroes' that eventually banded together and fought back against Milu and his forces (see Pacific League for the hero story!), stopping Milu from overtaking nearly all of the Hawaiian Islands. Today, however, Milu and his band of warlords and troops, now collectively called the "Kaha Koa", are slowly reforming...and are now more dangerous than ever!
The Kaha Koa is a loose band of regional warlords, all under the direct command of Milu, still operating as his own 'god of death'. As Milu contemplates and plots his next great move to expand his Lua-o-Milu with millions of new, innocent human souls, the Kaha Koa's warlords continue in their efforts of regional instability, invasions of the human mainland and islands and attacking any and all that dare enter their domain! Separately, the Warlords and their armies are dangerous; as a combined force, the Kaha Koa could turn Earth into a living Hell!
Join us in our journey into the mythos of the Polynesian culture, as well as the Indo-Asian world of deities and its many amazing stories and the deifications of their cultural villains and beings of chaos and/or discord. Check out our new character entries each week as we pierce the veil of the Pacific region's mythological powerhouses and how they are represented in this, our Major Deej Universe!
DIVE WITH US INTO THE DARK WATERS OF THE KAHA KOA!
Update (19 Sep 21): It's done! Kaha Koa is all done! New stories! New images! These guys powers and origins will fry your brain! Go read all the incredible, awesome pages NOW!

In the MDU, when the South Atlantic Ocean isles of Saint Helena, Ascension Island and the island group Tristan da Cunha were taken over and turned into the new socialist island nation of Oceania, the rest of the free world tried to liberate them - and failed miserably.
For the last few decades the militant socialist society of Oceania has become a bastion of military industry and a haven for some of the most reprehensible people on Earth. In an attempt to liberate the isles, a band of resistance warriors, androids and metahumans have since taken the fight to Oceania. They hide in the hills, the ocean, the sewers, in the island's volcano and even amongst the island's own Oceania troops, all in a desperate yet coordinated effort to try to free the islands of their oppressors. To that end, 'The Liberators' are now in full operation!
For the next few weeks, we'll be overhauling the ranks of The Liberators. Their stories are quite unique, with some surprising twists in their associations with 'other' heroes and villains throughout the MDU! Want to know more? Of course you do! Check back in every so often and visit the Liberators webpage or the 'What's News?' section to see the latest!
GEAR UP, TEAM! WE'VE GOT PEOPLE IN NEED OF BEING LIBERATED!
Update (14 Aug 21): The Liberators are complete! All new entries! All new images! All new AWESOME! Go check them out on the Liberators webpage! They'll make you WANT to become a freedom fighter after reading their stories!
The Exterminators Are Back!
19 June 2021 UPDATED: 13 July 2021)
One of the most feared, ruthless and dangerous brigade of hunters, murderers and mad scientists, The Exterminators, has found its way back into the folds of the MDU! This evil, villainous group has been in the MDU for decades, but now the characters that make up this vile menagerie will get their own stories to tell. Be warned, their stories, just like the Exterminators themselves, will most likely be disturbing and filled with a darkness that might even make the gory film-maker Quentin Tarantino squirm! Check back with us from now out into July on the Exterminators site and/or the newest entries in the "What's News" section to find out which inglorious character and story has oozed itself into the pages of the MDU's most irreprehensible band of scum and villainy.

As with any major gambling enterprise, crime and duplicity find their way to the 'fold'. Lucky for them, they have quite a 'draw' of characters that can be 'played' to keep the cartels and the 'families' happy and prosperous with their 'whales'; those 'wise guys' are the BLACKJACKS!
Headed up by the "Tzar of Gambling" himself, BLACKJACK BRUNO, the BLACKJACKS have influence, power and a means to 'correct' things if things don't go the way they way them to go. As such, the BLACKJACKS, along with their hundreds of thugs and sub-bosses worldwide, also have a band of 'unique professionals' to help fix problems; problems that might take away from the profitability of the BLACKJACKS and their clients. Who are these unique professionals? Well, over the next few weeks, we'll be introducing them to you (luckily, only via web pages and NOT in person, youknowwhatImean?). Cut the cards, place your bets and go for that perfect '21' at the tables, cause we're dealin' here!
UPDATED - 9 June 2021: The Blackjacks are DONE! Go check out their awesome entries NOW!

The TEUTONIC LEAGUE is back!
27 April 2021 (Updated: 31 May 21)
Guten Tag! Germany's own superhero team, the TEUTONIC LEAGUE is ready to take its place in the MDU! Started during the Cold War, the Teutonic League was an illegal, secret band of special heroes and people that did what they could for (at the time) West Germany. After German reunification, the team was not only outlawed (still), but completely obliterated from record. It wasn't until the 2000 Soltan Invasion of Earth did the team come back together to help save Germany and Europe from its alien invaders. Today, the TEUTIONIC LEAGUE is in full public operation, however, it remains under heavy scrutiny, working hard to ensure they are never perceived as the next evil Axis Force!
Check in on us over the next few weeks as we provide new content into this hallowed hall of data of the characters, the history, their home...and much more! Don't need to go 'noir' on us! Come checkout what this band of young adventurers is all about and start practicing your German!

It's the DEMOLITION PARTY!
16 January 2021 (Updated: 26 Jan 21)
So you thought it was safe to step into 2021, huh? Well, that idea just got demolished...by the DEMOLITION PARTY!
Faster than a union-led construction crew! More powerful than a Liebherr LTM 11200 crane! Able to knock down tall buildings in a single blow! It's a Foreman! It's a Excavator! It's...it's....a DEMOLITION PARTY!! Yes, the Demolition Party. Led by the infamous FOREMAN, this group of super-powered demolitions experts routinely provides three of the five phases necessary for any site's demolition, all in one package...whether the site wants the demolition or not! Contracted by the highest bidder, these devastators and dilapidators show up, destroy and leave, usually getting enormous pay checks for cutting out the middle man and the slow union-led construction crews and services. That is to say, some of their jobs are to tear down buildings for competitors of other businesses as well; perfectly fine buildings not even slated for demolition for that matter! It's a dog-eat-dog world in corporate competitiveness, and what better tool to have than a crew of super-powered people that will take out your competition's factory BEFORE said factory can start-up production on a product that could corner the market! Imagine the happiness this 'party' brings to executives trying to find ways to 'tear down' their competition! Well, here they are!
Keep watching the Demolition Party page as well as the latest entries in the "What's News?" section of our website's home page in the next month or so for the latest character entries for our band of not-nice demolishers and dilapidators!
UPDATE (26 Jan 2021): The Demolition Party job is done on this site! Check out all the new and amazing info, history, powers, equipment and talents this band of destructive deficients have! It'll 'knock you over'! ENJOY!!

IT'S A CRIME!
A CRIMEWAVE, THAT IS!!
11 Aug 2020 (Updated: 28 Aug 2020)
The criminal elements of Crimewave are making a splash this summer! With crime on the rise, the gang at the MDU decided to 'get on with it' and hooked up with the notion that it was time to make the character pages for these made men (and women)! These men and women are ruthless experts in criminal operations and in running the criminal underworld. They are the envy - and the bane - of other gangs, as well as the police, the FBI, Interpol...and even the super hero community!
Over the next few weeks, we'll be adding and updating the characters and stories of Crimewave's favorite thieves and criminals so that you don't need to call 411 to get the info on these wise guys! Keep watching our 'Gangs' section's CRIMEWAVE updates and don't say we didn't warn you...these guys are trouble! Make sure you know who's who here!

The Terraguardians are a band of super-powered non-military peacekeepers that provide a little super-powered help in battles at ground level that most troops and armies can't!

300th Character Added to the MDU's Website!
1 June 2019
It's a day of celebration! In less than a year's time, we've added another 100 characters to the MDUverse! That's a LOT of web-pages, costumes, stories, stats, talents and equipment!
We've added several groups and organizations since then, as well as cleaned up over 3 dozen other character pages.
At the same time, we've standardized a lot of our formatting for the pages, including the linkages in the 'history' sections to accommodate an even greater breadth of character story!
We're still not done either! Here's to out 300th Character milestone, and to out next milestone: 400!!! Break out a beer, some champagne, or just down a mug of coffee as our 300th character, Captain Seawolf, likes to do! Onward!!!
G.U.A.R.D. has four superhero groups that make up their "Guardians" mega-group. One of these Guardian groups is the "Seaguardians". The Seaguardians characters have been around for decades and are LONG overdue for getting added to this venerable website.
From their quantum-powered GSS Paragon (GSX-1), these sea-going superhero sailors try to keep the peace in the oceans of the world; a vast task over a vast area, all of which the Seaguarians have the willpower (and the tech) to get the job done! From battling prophetic Polynesian gods in the Pacific Ocean to resisting invasions from undersea kingdoms in the Atlantic Ocean, the Seaguardians, led by the unfathomable Captain Seawolf, go full out and all ahead flank to protect the world from those wishing to do it harm!
Raise your periscope and scan the horizon for our new 'visual contacts' entering the site's 'field of operations'! Take a 'liberty call' and visit our all new, all exciting web-based sea stories of our salty Sargasso of submariners known as...the Seaguardians!

Arise, Comrades! The Soviet Guard is here to put things right!
(Updated: 13 May 2020) 4 Apr 2020
COMRADES! Rejoice! It is another glorious day in the luminous light of Lenin! Even though most of the world, including our own Soviet motherland, has been brainwashed to follow the western lies, we, the SOVIET GUARD, shall continue our battle to fight and make the Soviet Union a world power once again, as well as teach those the error of their ways in renouncing the Soviet way of life. We, the SOVIET GUARD, are now ready to take our war back to the west again!
With the legendary Generalissimus leading us, as he has for the last century since World War I, we have no other direction than our march towards victory! Soon, our people shall rejoice as they once again see the might of the SOVIET GUARD!
As such, the SOVIET GUARD shall now allow the MDU staff to...update...our 'web pages' to further our agenda! POBEDA!
UPDATE (13 May 20): The current members of the Soviet Guard are done! We still have seveal in the old 'Red Guard' subgroup that need to be done, but the goal is to get the current characters completed...which we've done! Take a look at these amazing character entries...they may not be as 'two-dimensional' as you'd imagine most Soviet characters to be!

The 'Commonwealth' of Nations Has Its Own Superheroes
28 Mar 2020 (Update: 4 Apr 2020)
Most notably, the United States seem to have the lion's share of superheroes in the world, however over the last decade, heroes from here and there, in nations that make up the whole of Great Britain's Commonwealth of Nations (CoN), have since formed for the good of the Commonwealth. As such, the aptly named 'Commonwealth" super-group exists to promote the CoN's goals.
With a British ex-spy code-named Britannia leading this highly unique team of individuals, the Commonwealth has already proven to be more than the sum of its parts.
Over the next few weeks, our MDU team will be adding the characters of our incredible band of international superheroes!
UPDATE: 4 Apr 20 - Commonwealth SG and character web pages are complete! Go check them all out!
4 Mar 2020
A new vigilante group has come upon the scene! But who are they, and who are they helping? The police? The mobsters? Themselves? Keep watching for them...because I'm pretty sure they're already watching you...
As with all things, change is inevitable. In the last couple of months we've added, moved, deleted, updated, downgraded, expanded, enlarged and even revitalized a few of our wondrous GANGS. The Blackjacks finally have a list of Bruno's top lieutenants, as well as the Crimson showing were it's boundaries have expanded to! Along with that, the Daybreakers got a MASSIVE overhaul and the Maritime Marauders finally have a roster! Even the Aegis Alliance has a new 'mystique' about it!
Lots of changes, all for you to view and enjoy! Check them out...before the boss sends out a hit squad to 'entice' you!
In our MDU Comics' Halloween Special we created in 2016, we'd introduced a band of ... interesting ... men-hating magical women bent of taking out the Knights Arcanus which were, at that time, helping out Major Deej in a massive anti-crime project. These women never even got to fight the Knights because they instead first encountered "Manny the Man-Eater" - a walking plant pet of Spring Knight; a pet that was so hungry, it consumed over half the the "Arcane Sisterhood" with its acidic maw. Today, what's left of the Arcane Sisterhood has once again banded together! Take a peek at their new webpage and keep on the look-out for new individual character entries! Maybe Malconna will have better luck this year?
9 Jan 2020 (Updated: 4 Mar 2020)
This is one of the super-groups that is near and dear to my heart - THE PROTECTORS! I created this band of heroic misfits when I was 9 years old. I've gone through many iterations with these characters over the decades, culminating with new, more modern entries. This group was my first ever self-created super team. Although I'd hoped for it, I never wrote any comics about them, simply because I hadn't figured out how to make all these unique heroes work together. At the least, these characters are going to get rebooted back into the fold and setup for what I hope will be a rebirth of their group.
I'll be updating their origin stories, revising a few costumes and of course, putting together a new, awesome team origin; an origin that'lI be written where the team was actually CREATED in 1975 and all the key stories involved since then! There'll be a LOT of history here to tell, making this team one of the few super-teams with a serious veteran status in the MDU.
As I work on these character pages over the coming weeks/months, take some time and review the super team web page here. The base itself is just awesome! Protectors! Engage!
UPDATE: 4 Mar 20 - Protectors SG and character web pages are complete! Go check them all out!
27 DECEMBER 2019 (Update: 9 Jan 20)
While updating a few pages, we decided we needed to finish off the GUARD Operations with a wonderful addition we've been dying to post on this site - MOONGUARD!
MOONGUARD is a subdivision of GUARD Operations and is focused around the Fort Armstrong Moonbase. It's leader, Wayne Grissom, now has some help running the adventures from his facility as well as a new layout for Fort Armstrong!
The imagery and the storytelling will be phenomenal from this location and as such, we needed the moonbase to be an awesome addition...and addition that we just couldn't wait until the new year to show you! Thanks to the dedication of a CoH friend (you know who you are), we present to you MOONGUARD and the Fort Armstrong Moonbase!
We're still updating it, but go check int out now! It's out of this world!!
UPDATE: 9 Jan 20 - MOONGUARD and its Officers, history and base updates are complete! Go check them out!

200th Character Added to the MDU's Website!
27 July 2019
Since this new website was launched, the MDU team has worked to update the quality of each character's imagery, story and details to a degree never before done with any of our characters. As such, it has been a long few years since "Major Deej" graced us with being the site's first character (sadly, we're even updating THAT character's details in order to reflect the MDU Origins' comic of Major Deej)!
Keep looking for the next 200! We have many more exciting and dynamic characters yet to come! PAU HANA, BRUDDA!
25 June 2019 (Update: 19 Sep 2019)

CONDOR LEGION is ready to engage!
19 June 2019 (UPDATE: 27 JUL 2019)
ACTHUNG! The ex-East German terrorist army known as CONDOR LEGION is back in action and disseminating information freely about their organization! They intend to use this information to scare and cajole heroes and nations to fear the Condor Legion, but instead it has provided more insight into their sick and twisted plan to take over Germany and make it a new socialist nation, along with doing the same to all the nations of Europe!
The Legion, led by the nefarious Condor Commander, still remains well hidden and at large, but more information keeps coming in every week! Check back here to get the last intel on this ominously dangerous band of villains!

The Arachnoknights Crawl Back to Life!
4 March 2019 (Updated: 10 Apr 2019)
From City of Heroes' "Arachnos" villain group, the "Knights of Arachnos" once dominated the Freedom server as the largest Arachnos-themed Villain Group (VG) alongside its brother VG, the "Champions of Arachnos".
Out of respect for CoH's incredible forray into this spider-themed militant organization of the game's Rogue Isles, the MDU decided to pay homage to that group by creating the "Arachnoknights". Although an offshoot of the original Knights of Arachnos VG, it was meshed with the other FOUR (yes, FOUR) Arachons-themed VGs I'd created and, well, I made this. Sadly, the VG origin and the characters needed more help in transitioning to that homage...more help that I was ready to give at that time.
Today, the Arachnoknights are being remade to something FAR more than what they were before! As such, they will be a major mover and shaker in the MDUverse just as Arachnos was in the CoHverse!
Stay tuned for the results of the massive "Arachnoknights" overhaul folks! Results soon (tm)!
UPDATE: Arachnoknights are DONE!!! All characters, images and stories have been updated and are ready for everyone to read and check out! Crawl over to the Arachnoknights page for all the new entries!

Over the next month or so, we'll be posting incredible pages and info about the kingdom and details about their key cities, as well as individual character pages for each and every Atlantic Guard member, and of course, King Dolphin himself!

ALOHA!!! Time to ride the wave of those heroes of the Pacific Rim! We started on them a year or so ago, but were unable to finish them due to story issues (and work, and life, and...you get the idea). SO, instead of freezing in the snow, we're going to light the Tiki torches and hang out in warmer climes to get back to our favorite characters even if it means looking at a Hawaiian beach wallpaper to get by!

Samhain Knight! Autumn Knight! Deathknight! These are just a few of the incredible characters that make up the Knights Arcanus, a heroic band of arcane warriors out to protect the world from the darker side of magic. Expatriated from their own secretive magical community, these heroes have not only helped the world fight against the Soltan Star Empire's invasion of Earth in 2000, they've also since stopped hundreds of magical incursions, demons and sadistic mages!
With pagan Samhain festivals in the wind, Halloween and cooler Autumn nights forthcoming, it only seems right to get this incredible team geared-up for action before the New England snows hit!

It had to happen! AXIS FORCE characters will be getting their long-overdue entries transferred from the 'old' website and updated and spiffed-up here on this new website! Over a dozen characters are about to be added...some of them NEW!! As 'ole Major Invader used to say, 'to beat your enemy is to KNOW your enemy', and the best way to do that is to check out these characters in their own heinous halls of villainy!
As a note for those that don't like the idea of having anything 'Nazi-related' in this site, please understand, this is definitely NOT to honor or promote them, instead it's to provide you, the reader, a chance to peer, with a critical eye, through a series of fictional character stories that we hope will ultimately educate you in what happens when an unstopped hate and evil is created and how, even in today's society, we must ensure that it's sinister head NEVER rises from its own ashes.
Prepare yourself, Reader, for a walk on the dark side...
Update: Axis Force is as done as it can be...WHAT?!? You haven't checked out their new entries?! Shame on you!! Get to reading (and listening to their individual music themes too!!)!!
