A [[EnsembleCast large cast]] is composed of both retired Maxis, the children (and grandchildren) of Maxis that have grown up in this Superhero Retirement Community, and the normal amount of civilians to be found in any small town. Sheriff [[ActionGirl Thomasina "Tommy" Lindo]], who [[BadassNormal has no powers]], works to deal with the normal conflicts that arise in any town, but which have the added threat of being carried about by people with an inordinate amount of superpowers. [[BadassGrandpa Alex "Judge" Fury]], the Mayor of Tranquility and hero of WorldWarII, is also featured along with his wife, [[MsFanservice Suzy "Pink Bunny" Fury]], and Colonel [[ThoseTwoGuys Isaac Cragg and Bad Dog]]. Together they formed the Liberty Squad along with [[FlyingBrick Maximum Man]], [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Astral Man]] and [[ButtMonkey Arnold "Cosmos" Stipple]] before Astral Man was murdered and they all retired to Tranquility.

The original volume, twelve issues long, was published in 2007 and 2008 before it went on hiatus, returning in 2010 for a planned six issue limited series. A part of the Wildstorm Universe, ''Welcome to Tranquility'' is unique in its relative disconnect from other series set in the same [[SharedUniverse universe]]. ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' are mentioned on occasion, and ''ComicBook/{{Gen 13}}'' guest stars in the second arc of the original series, but the majority of the story remains independent.

* {{Wildstorm}}: It is part of the Wildstorm shared universe, which is itself part of the larger Franchise/DCUniverse since ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', but remains primarily independent from other series. Since the ending of the second series, the Wildstorm imprint was discontinued, though several characters and concepts have since been incorporated into the ComicBook/{{New 52}}.
* WorldWarII: From all we have heard it seems like the Liberty Squad won it single-handedly...except for Colonel Cragg.

''ComicBook/WelcomeToTranquility'' is an American comic book series created by GailSimone and NeilGooge and published by Creator/{{Wildstorm}}. It is set in the fictional California town of Tranquility where {{superhero}}es and [[{{Supervillain}} supervillains]], also known as "[[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Maxis]]," have retired and settled down to raise families after their hectic and action-packed youths. Despite the presence of both heroes and villains there is little crime amongst the populace, the heroes have grown old and the villains have either been cleared of their criminal charges or served out their prison time, allowing them to live in (relative) peace. Old rivalries remain, but revolve around traditional aspects of retired life, such as [[SeriousBusiness debating who gets the apples that fall on either side of a property line]].

** Cragg's comic books posit that after being captured by the 'Nazi Giant', he was given an honorable duel against him that led to the loss of his eye. The reality was far different from any comic book. After being captured, the Giant simply tortured Cragg relentlessly (With the implication he was also castrated) and left him for dead.
