Oh look, it's more Avengers-referencing art. Why is this stuff so fun to do?

Kick-ass Tamora Pierce characters assemble! Plus a bear!

Based on this poster.

Beka Cooper has been frozen at the Roof Of The World somehow, I guess, before being revived in Alanna et al's time. She gets on well with her descendant Aly, but she and Alanna have a troubled relationship and sometimes struggle for leadership of the group.

Daine brings the archery (with a sideline in summoning rampaging animals). She is of course a canonical spy and maybe in recent years has worked alongside Aly a lot.

Alanna was once captured by, let's say, Scanrans who attempted to force her to make Blayce-style killing machines for them. Instead she forged a magical suit of armour which channelled her power more powerfully than ever.

Kelady of Mindelan is the team's strong arm. I can't quite imagine any of her brothers turning to the dark side unfortunately for the fit.

Aliannne is a master spy and excellent in close combat. The tension between Alianne and her mother Alanna alone make this team as much of a ticking time-bomb as the original Avengers.

The superhero-names are not quite up to the standards of silliness of the Terry Pratchett equivalent. I feel particularly mean about calling Kel 'Lump' but she did end up wearing the name like a badge of honour, amiright? I'd be glad to hear any suggestions for improvement in the naming department.

Because of seeing the Avengers a couple dozen times, I'm going on my plan to turn the Tortallans into the Avengers. I am absolutely nowhere near ready to publish it, but I hope you would let me use the character's designs from here in it. I'm also adding an actual Hulk person. Not revealing him, but it is a guy and he is called Giant.

I saw Avengers last Saturday, and then my mom got it this Tuesday and we've been watching it almost everyday since we've got it. It's so awesome and now I want someone to write a story where the girls all become the Tortallans. Also, In the fanfics I've read that have the brother who gave her her fear of hights is usually a jerk and I think one has him evilish, so you could use him for Loki possibly.

:D Thanks for your comment.

Yes, Kel's brother seems a bit of a berk, but perhaps Alanna's brother Thom would be the best fit for Loki? Damaged, a bit evil but ultimately loveable... :)

True, I didn't think of that. Maaww, I want Loki now.

I cannot stop smiling...

You could maybe just call Kel "Protector" or "Lady Knight" it may not be cooler, but it's a bit better than Lump? Less Hulk and more Thor :)
Anyway interesting concept and the backstory works well!
Kate-Kyrillion Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012
I did consider those... I might change it to 'Protector' :)

well one of kel's brothers was kind of a jerk, but I guess that doesn't really count... Excellent work, I adore the idea!
