''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 Maxi's]]," 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]].

A [[EnsembleCast large cast]] is composed of both retired Maxi's, the children (and grandchildren) of Maxi's 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.

* AffectionateParody: Throughout the series there are "reprints" of the adventures of the various characters from their youth, portrayed as [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks classic comics from the 1940's and 1950's]]. These include Minxy Millions, KidHero and child millionaire, and the Liberty Squad, who fought the Nazis in World War II. [[{{Deconstruction}} They portray a lot of the problems with these stories]], such as what happens to a KidHero when dementia sets in and what fighting Germans on the Eastern Front will do to a man, but they remain pleasantly nostalgic and fond of the classic style.
