Second main character and the antagonist of Upbringing!
Meet Lord Wrath! Public Enemy Number 1, Foe of the Omega Knights, and Ronnie Miller's mentor.
Quick Bio: Lord Wrath is Earth's Greatest Super Villain. He has made his home in the underbelly of Titan City. Lord Wrath is rumored to have committed just about every crime in the book. He leads his own army of supervillains, known as the Dark Ones, against his sworn enemy, D.C. Dynamo and the Omega Knights. He spreads fear and darkness where he goes, and commands respect from those who follow him. Lord Wrath also has nearly unlimited resources that he has acquired over the years, with many weapons, powers, followers, and home-grown soldiers to defend his empire.
One day after a battle with the Omega Knights, Lord Wrath assembles his followers in an abandoned warehouse. To his and everyone's surprise, the warehouse was the secret hangout of one teenager: Ronnie Miller. To keep him alerting the police and Omega Knights, Lord Wrath orders his henchmen to exterminate Ronnie, but once the henchmen have him cornered, Ronnie unleashed his bottled up fury and takes on the goons. Impressed with the boy's fury and anger, Lord Wrath orders Ronnie to be captured and taken to his secret fortress hidden in a dark dimension. There, Lord Wrath offers a chance to become great... by becoming his apprentice and heir.
Now, Lord Wrath and his generals have begun to tutor Ronnie in the ways of evil, everything from crime and theft to murder and political machinations. While many question Lord Wrath's decision to make Ronnie his apprentice, he has his reasons and will not be questioned. Lord Wrath has also taken measurements to ensure Ronnie doesn't go to the police or Omega Knights... by threatening his family and all he holds dear.
-Master in combat, strategy, organized crime, manipulation, and authority.
-Superhuman strength, speed, agility, endurance, and stamina.
-Levitation and Flight
-Plasma blast and telekinesis
-Knowledgeable in super science, limited magical knowledge.
-Near unlimited resources and many followers, including home-grown soldiers trained in combat.
-Commands authority and respect.
-Deep hatred for super heroes that he spreads to his followers.
-Sees Ronnie's potential and encourages him to unleash his fury.
•Not much is known about Lord Wrath's history or background. This is due to the fact that he has erased himself from the records of the world, and those who do know about his life are ordered to keep it to themselves.
•Lord Wrath doesn't just let anyone into the Dark Ones; they must first pass a series of tests including pulling of a crime, breaking out of jail, and surviving an encounter with the Omega Knights.
•Lord Wrath is a music enthusiast. In his private quarters he often has operas from different countries playing.
•Lord Wrath has inspired many fictional comic book villains in Ronnie's world, including Doctor Doominius, Ole Olivor, The Grey Gremlin, and Gravito.
•While Lord Wrath is deemed the most evil being on the face of the Earth, he himself feels that's untrue. Case in point: he refuses to let those who get sexual thrills from murder into the dark ones.
I hope you are all satisfied with Lord Wrath. He thinks what he does is right and may have reason to think that, but he's still willing to cross the line to do what he thinks is right. Much of who Lord Wrath is and his history will come later in the series. Lord Wrath will be Ronnie's main antagonist because he is threatening Ronnie to follow him, but his interest in Ronnie will sort of make him a father figure.
For his design I wanted something that evoked terror and commanded respect. Believe it or not this was his first design and I made a new one when I thought I could do better, but someone told me his old design worked best. Also, Purple is a color of royalty, and Lord Wrath technically is a King of Villains, so it works. Personally, his helmet is my favorite part of the design.
First upload of the NRG Comics page and it's the main character for one of our current projects.
Meet Ronnie Miller, start of Upbringing and Supervillain in training(often reluctant).
Ronald "Ronnie" Miller was born in Titan City, home to the Omega Knights and the Dark Ones, the Earth's greatest superheroes and supervillains respectfully. Ronnie is the quintessential kid in High School who is considered an outcast. He gets good grades and takes life one day at a time, but he is constantly attacked with beatings and ridicule by bullies, especially from Frank Parker, his school's resident jock and overall jerk. Because he never fights back Ronnie is slowly losing respect from his father, Walter Miller, who thinks Ronnie's lack of confidence and backbone means he can't make it in the real world.Ronnie’s refusal to fight back is based in his respect for his mother , Angie Miller, who doesn't want Ronnie to get in trouble for fighting his fellow students but rarely raises her voice over her husband's views of Ronnie. Along with family troubles and being the Constant target for bullies, Ronnie is slowly losing his life-long friend and crush, Lana Valentine, who's growing popularity among her classmates is taking time away from Ronnie. All this has given Ronnie some deep anger issues.
One fateful day after another humiliating experience at school, Ronnie goes to his secret hideout for some solitude and accidently stumbles upon a meeting held by the Dark Ones and their leader, Lord Wrath. Ronnie tries to run, but is cornered. Snapping, Ronnie unleashes his anger on the Dark Ones’ henchmen and does surprisingly well, but is defeated and taken to the Dark Ones' lair. Lord Wrath then tells Ronnie he sees potential in him, and offers Ronnie an apprenticeship.
Ronnie is now trapped between a rock and a hard place as he's forced to be an apprentice for the Dark Ones out of the fear for his family, but soon realizes his time with them is making him a better man in the eyes of his father. So, the question remains: will Ronnie get out alive, or will he become the world’s next greatsupervillain?
-No Powers or Abilities as of yet, but is receiving training in combat, marksmanship, weaponry, mad science, assassination, organized crime, political machinations, dark magic, strategy, espionage, blackmail, and many villainess endeavors.
-Deep Anger Issues which are being harnessed through training along with need to be a better man in his father's eyes.
-Deep Love for Mother, Sister, and Friend/Crush
•Ronnie has a deep love for music and has his own keyboard piano. His dream is to become a composer for big film industries and make grand music for all to enjoy. His heroes is John Williams and Danny Elfman.
•Ronnie is ambidexterous, which means he can use both his hands to do what most people could only do with one hand normally, such as write, swing a bat, catch a ball, or play the guitar.
•Ronnie has a dislike for gum. He hates it. Hates seeing people chew it, and especially hates seeing it on the streets or under desks and tables. He thinks something you chew in your mouth should not be spit back out when you are done with it.
•Ronnie's favorite video game is Kingdom Brain, an adventure game about a girl who goes from world to world defeating dark beings known as the Mindless.
•Ronnie has a dislike for the taste of fish, but he will eat it if his mom cooks it. He won't eat it in restaurants, but his mother's recipe is the only one he can stand.
This is the main character of Upbringing. Ronnie's growth in the comics will be long and fun, as he will see and do things no boy his age should see.
For his design, I went with a simple teenager look. His hair is a bit messy, and I know he looks muscular but believe me when he's introduced into the comics he will be scrawny. Since Ronnie is an artistic person, I gave him a satchel bookbag. Also, the thing on his wrist is a communicator Lord Wrath gave to him for contact purposes, but it also serves as a tracker so Ronnie doesn't go to the police.
