Rogue Sun

     As a whole
The light in the dark.
The Rogue Sun mantle is a superhero identity that has passed through several hands. The powers come from the Sun Stone gem, a powerful magical gem that has been around for centuries. The powers and armour are summoned by holding the Sun Stone and shouting "Rogue Sun!"
  • Anti-Hero: Most of the Rogue Suns wouldn't really qualify as the Ideal Hero by a longshot.
    • Marcus' father was a Domestic Abuser whom Marcus once saw drunkenly hitting his mother while wearing the Rogue Sun armour. This was how Marcus first learned his father was a superhero.
    • Marcus himself is a rather unpleasant and cynical person, as seen in his interactions with Marshal and Cassia in Supermassive. He also isn't the best father, having abandoned Dylan when the latter was little and then picking him as his successor because he liked him the least and didn't want to put his other children in danger.
    • Dylan is a self-centered jerk who only sees the title of Rogue Sun for what it can bring him, rather than as a duty to protect people.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: The powers are activated by shouting "Rogue Sun!" while holding the gem.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: They run around in black armour with hellfire coming out of it. However, despite some having rough edges, they're heroes who protect the world from otherworldly threats.
  • Flight: They can fly under their own power at decent speeds.
  • Legacy Character: There are four Rogue Suns so far (that we know of), and it's implied that there are many more. All we seemingly know for sure is that Caleb is the first.
  • Pun-Based Title: The powers look like fire, hence the "Sun" part. However, the powers also pass from father to son, and so far, there seems to be a trend of said sons having complicated relationships with their fathers and not having their approval.
  • Playing with Fire: The Rogue Suns' bodies become engulfed in flames and armour, and they can shoot fire from their hands.
  • Secret Identity: They all seem to have one.
    • Marcus has one, but the Bells knew, as did Gwen. Mourningstar also somehow knew, as it immediately recognised his name as Rogue Sun's when Gwen brought it up. The Raven Queen was also aware of it and had worked with him in the past.
    • Dylan keeps a secret identity from everyone but the Bells and his mother, since they were there for the reading of Marcus' will when he got the Sun Stone. However, Billy Bludmoon works it out when he catches Dylan's scent, while Mourningstar somehow knows and tells Hellbent, and the Raven Queen is also aware despite Dylan's efforts. To keep it from being tracked down by fans, Juliette has Dylan's car repaired so his flight paths to and from the Bell estate can't be tracked.
  • Super Strength: While armoured, the Rogue Suns can easily go toe-to-toe with other super strength characters. The powers augment the strength that the Rogue Suns already have, so them being in shape does matter despite them having this, as Juliette reveals to Dylan.

     Rogue Sun I / The Knight Sun (Caleb Hawthorne) 

Caleb Hawthorne

Alias: Rogue Sun, The Knight Sun

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #9 (December 2022)

"There are no easy answers. Just put one foot in front of the other. And know I'm with you every step of the way."

Caleb is the first person, to his knowledge, to hold the mantle of Rogue Sun, also being dubbed "the Knight Sun". Caleb was born in 1365, and was not born into wealth or the right to be a knight. However, once he gained the Sun Stone, he fought to protect the innocent anyway until his death in 1403. Caleb's spirit then resided in the Sun Stone, and he would watch the world change and the Sun Stone change hands around him, until his spirit was called forth by Aurie Bell in an attempt to speak to her father. Caleb quickly and dutifully decides that he will provide Dylan the aid he desperately needs.
  • Big Brother Instinct: When Caleb's sister was kidnapped, he, when he was younger than Dylan, found the adult men who did took her and fought them to get her back. He actually succeeded, and this was before he had the Sun Stone.
  • Commonality Connection: He bonds with Dylan by telling him about his issues with his own father, who was ashamed that Caleb, as a child, had to save his sister and as a result never spoke to him ever again.
  • Foil: He mentors Dylan the way Marcus wanted to, but without the condescension and baggage. He offers Dylan advice and support, but in a healthier way, and Caleb himself offers to return to the Sun Stone as he had been earlier once Dylan doesn't need him anymore. As a result, Dylan eventually opens up to him.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Caleb is the most heroic and noble of the Rogue Suns, and one of his Rogue Sun abilities was to manifest a sword. He later imparts the ability to Dylan.
  • Knight In Shining Armour: Actual colour aside, he's presented as a noble warrior who protects the innocent. In fact, he's the first example of a straight-up noble Rogue Sun we see. It only took 10 issues! He's more often referred to as "the Knight Sun" than as Rogue Sun, too.
  • Spirit Advisor: Like Marcus before him, he becomes one to Dylan. However, unlike Marcus, others can see him too.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: Caleb's father was ashamed of himself after Caleb, as a teenager, was forced to rescue his sister himself. His father never spoke to him again, and Caleb admits that he still wants his father's approval.

     Rogue Sun II 

Rogue Sun II

Alias: Rogue Sun

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (mentioned) (February 2022)

Marcus' father, and Rogue Sun immediately preceding him. He was an abusive husband and father, and Marcus does not look fondly on the man. He's since passed away, but not before saving the world a few times.
  • Abusive Parents: He was a domestic abuser, and it's pretty apparent that his parenting of Marcus is what led Marcus to being as cynical as he is.
  • Jerkass: According to Marcus, he was an all around son of a bitch who didn't care about anyone but himself.
  • Post Humous Character: In contrast to Marcus, who we at least meet once before his death, we only learn about this Rogue Sun after he's already passed away.

     Rogue Sun III (Marcus Bell) 

Marcus Randolph Bell

Alias: Rogue Sun

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (February 2022)
The absentee dad.
"You can't rely on anyone but yourself. But if you front up and face whatever's coming, despite knowing you'll likely lose...then when they put you in the ground, no one who matters can call you a coward. The rest you've gotta figure out for yourself."

Marcus was only a boy when he learned that his father was the superhero Rogue Sun. Unfortunately, he learned this when his drunk father, while still in the armour, hit Marcus' mother. After receiving his father's powers, Marcus became the superhero Rogue Sun. He protected New Orleans and the world, becoming respected as a superhero. After rescuing Gwen Siegel, the two began a relationship and got married, eventually having a son, Dylan. Marcus left the two after being away for six months. He'd later get remarried to a woman named Juliette, and have two kids with her, Aurie and Brock.

Eventually, Marcus was killed as Rogue Sun by a someone in a green robe named Cataclysm. After Marcus' death, in accordance with his will, his powers and mantle passed to his estranged son, Dylan. However, as a surprise to both of them, Marcus' spirit lingered in the Sun Stone, allowing him to talk to his son and provide him guidance, whether Dylan wants it or not.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Supermassive mostly serves as one for him before his death at the start of Rogue Sun. We get a glimpse into his upbringing and why he's as jaded as he is, and get to see him actually be an effective superhero so it's not merely an Informed Attribute.
  • Abusive Parents:
    • The victim of this, namely from his father. Marcus recalls his dad hitting his mother as how he learned who Rogue Sun was, and it's easy to see how Marcus ended up as jaded as he is.
    • He himself was one, mostly through neglect. He left Dylan when he was 2, and was frequently absent from Aurie and Brock's lives. However, Aurie seems to have been closer with him, likely helped by the fact that she helped him with his Rogue Sun work.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Marcus essentially created the villain who eventually killed him through his horrible behaviour to Gwen and refusal to stay out of Dylan's life.
  • Death by Origin Story: His death is the catalyst for Dylan receiving the Rogue Sun powers and becoming a superhero.
  • Disappeared Dad: He bailed on Dylan and Gwen 15 years before the start of the story when Dylan was 2, eventually getting remarried.
  • Early Instalment Weirdness: His overall appearance was seemingly overhauled at some point. In his Supermassive debut, he has very light blonde hair and is drawn as a handsome, well-built guy in his early 30s or so. In Rogue Sun itself, he has darker blonde hair, and he's drawn as less good-looking and more gaunt, and appears to be in his late 30s at best, more likely early 40s.
  • Fetish: The first time we see him, he's talking to Juliette before heading home. They talk about having sex, and apparently Marcus likes to wear the Rogue Sun armour during...
  • Happily Married: The only times we ever see Marcus be affectionate is when he's talking to Juliette. She's also seemingly the only person to get a loving message in his will.
    Marcus' will: My life would have been incomplete without you.
  • Jerkass: He abandoned his first wife and child for 15 years, only turned up later when he decided to, and when Gwen objects to him intruding on their lives, Marcus tells her that, since he's a superhero, she can't stop him. When Marshall asks if Marcus will help him with an imminent alien invasion, Marcus blows him off and tells him it's Marshall's problem.
  • Knight in Sour Armour: Everything about how he acts reflects his cynical outlook. He punches first and asks questions later and is extremely rude (at best) to other superheroes.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Because he died in the Rogue Sun armour, his spirit remains with it. Whenever Dylan uses the powers, it allows Marcus to talk to him. In moments of passion, he can also briefly take control of the armour. However, Marcus can also decide to move on, if he wants to, which Dylan makes him promise to do once they find his murderer. While he didn't want to, Dylan eventually forces him to keep his end of the bargain.
  • Parental Favouritism: How Marcus chose his successor. Specifically, he chose Dylan because he likes him the least, and didn't want Aurie or Brock to be in danger. Based on the fact that he found Brock creepy and even thinks Brock could've played a hand in his murder, and what spurred him into revealing his identity to her, it seems Aurie was his favourite by default.
  • Parents as People: Dylan is estranged from Marcus, but what we see of Marcus makes it clear that his own issues with his own father has resulted in him being what he is.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: When he suddenly appears at his ex-wife's house to see his estranged son and she tells him to get lost, he responds that she can't stop him. Gwen also claims that Marcus felt "owed" for being a superhero and stole from the criminals and villains he stopped.
  • Secret-Keeper: He learns that Marshall is Radiant Black but doesn't do anything about it.

     Rogue Sun IV (Dylan Siegel) 

Dylan Michael Siegel

Alias: Rogue Sun

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (cameo) (February 2022), Rogue Sun #1 (full appearance) (March 2022)
The rebellious son.
"I can do this. I promise. I can be better than him."

The estranged 17-year-old son of Marcus Bell, the superhero Rogue Sun. After his father's death, Dylan inherits his father's powers and becomes entangled in the mystery of his murder, with the spirit of his father providing (often unwanted) advice. Despite inheriting the mantle of Rogue Sun, Dylan is very flippant about the responsibilities that entails, and only agrees to solve Marcus' murder on the condition that Marcus leave the Sun Stone once Dylan solves the case.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He seems to think he's a charming ladies man, when the girl he's after wants next to nothing to do with him and he mostly ends up annoying her. Vanessa even ends up dating someone else when Dylan is gone for a month.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Following in the footsteps of daddy dearest, Dylan's casual brutality of one of Suave's goons causes the goon's son, Hunter, to seek revenge on him as the supervillain Hellbent. Hunter easily defeats Dylan in their first fight, and Dylan's only left alive because Mourningstar wants something from him.
  • Delinquent: Dylan is a bully and has had so many run-ins with the law that, in a flashback, Marcus is surprised he hasn't run into him as Rogue Sun.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Dylan is a rude bully who loves to piss people off. Except when it comes to Gwen and Juliette.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Dylan may be a complete asshole, but he draws the line at animal abuse and murder. When he learns that Brock's talk with his father over "a kid who did something bad" is about a schoolmate who set a cat on fire, he tells Brock (via pretending Marcus says it) to hit the kid some more. He's also not at all happy with Gwen for killing Demonika.
  • Friendless Background: Dylan has no real friends, with the closest being his "best friend" Byron, a nerdy kid he bullies into doing his homework. When he was dating Vanessa, there was mutual hate between him and her friends, too. When one kid tries to befriend him two times, Dylan tells him to fuck off both times.
  • Hated by All: Played with, as a lot of people genuinely do not like Dylan because of his admittedly awful personality and behaviour. He has no real friends because he's an ass to everyone, his teachers are sick of his behaviour, his father specifically chose him as the new Rogue Sun so his other kids wouldn't be in danger, and both of his half-siblings don't like him for being the Sucksessor to their dad's legacy. The only people who show Dylan any semblance of sustained kindness and patience are his mother and Juliette, the only two people he hasn't gone out of his way to be rude to or offend.
  • Hates Their Parent: Makes it very clear that his opinion of his dad couldn't possibly be any lower. When he hears that Marcus has died, he asks for precise details and hopes it was painful.
  • Jerkass: We're introduced to him bullying his "best friend" for not doing his homework for him. He's also got a history of getting into trouble as well. After he becomes Rogue Sun, he's rude to everyone who isn't his mother. He eventually softens up to Brock, and after he moves in with the Bells, particularly to Juliette.
  • Like Father, Like Son: As much as he denies it, it is very quickly made clear how much Dylan is like his dad. He's a Jerkass, likes to pick fights and has trouble with relationships.
  • Loser Protagonist: Dylan is an asshole and a bully who is disliked by roughly everybody except for his mother and Juliette. He only received the Rogue Sun mantle because he was The Unfavorite of his dad's three kids in order to make sure his brother and sister weren't targeted by villains.
  • Pet the Dog: Though rare, Dylan has a few moments that show he's not entirely an ass.
    • He promises to be better than Marcus to his mum when she doesn't want him to be Rogue Sun.
    • After he learns why Brock resents him, Dylan tells him he's just keeping the Sun Stone warm until Brock is old enough.
    • He actually follows through with helping his nerdy "best friend" Byron get a date, though he was surprised it actually worked and it mostly involved forcing Byron to actually asking someone.
    • After Dylan moves in with the Bells, he's actually nice and respectful to Juliette, and even shows gratitude towards her, something he literally hadn't done in the series up to that point.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Dylan looks like a shorter, skinnier version of his father with longer hair. The Raven Queen even says they have the same eyes.
  • Sucksessor: He absolutely sucks at being Rogue Sun. While a big part of that is that he's new, Dylan refuses to take any advice his father gives him, or even react to the Sun Stone telling him he's needed. Suave is able to deduce that he isn't the previous Rogue Sun just by observing how sloppily he fights. He's also dismissive of anyone offering him help, leading to a lot of mistakes. Eventually, Juliette puts him on the same training regime that she did for Marcus.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: While Dylan is usually openly hostile and rude to everyone, in private with people he trusts, he can be more open about his struggles and more willing to be vulnerable. The people he's opened up to are Juliette, Caleb and, in the past, Vanessa.
    Vanessa: Dylan Siegel is two different people. One is sweet, caring, and has been through a lot of shit no one knows about. But the other is vicious, conceited, and only cares about himself. And I'm sorry to say... you never know which one you're gonna get.
  • The Un-Favourite: Marcus eventually tells Dylan that he specifically picked him to be his successor because he doesn't care about him. He knew he'd be killed and the next Rogue Sun would become a target, and didn't want Aurie or Brock to be hurt.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: He absolutely does not care that Marcus left him the Sun Stone, even before finding out why. Even after they catch Marcus' murderer and Marcus wants to mentor him more, Dylan wants nothing to do with Marcus. He's also not very appreciative of Gwen for raising him, even if he does love her. He's similarly very rude and ungrateful to Aurie when she helps him in his Rogue Sun duties, usually insulting her every chance he gets. Strangely, the only person he's ever thankful towards is Juliette, the woman Marcus married a year after abandoning Dylan and his mother.
  • Would Not Hit a Girl: He would and does, such as when he fought Demonika, but he'd really prefer not to if given the choice.

Family of the Rogue Suns

The Bell Family

     Juliette Bell 

Juliette Bell

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (February 2022)
The rich widow.
"Brock and Aurie, your father is dead and Dylan is risking his life to carry on his legacy. So you will show him the respect he deserves while he is a guest in this home. Is that understood?"

Marcus' second wife and widow, Juliette is a wealthy woman who comes from old money. She helped him in his activities as Rogue Sun, and was married to him for 14 years before his untimely death. Knowing Marcus' history with them, Juliette is welcoming to Dylan and Gwen.
  • Commonality Connection: She takes Dylan in after Gwen is imprisoned and Marcus leaves because she herself has experience with disappointing parents.
  • Good Parents: She's shown to be very loving and supportive of her kids, and even treats Dylan the same once she takes him in. However, she's strict when she needs to be, such as when Aurie acts reckless or when Dylan acts irresponsibly.
  • Good Stepmother: Not once is she shown insulting or disrespecting Dylan, in contrast to Aurie and Brock. She's also the healthiest parental figure he has, since Marcus mostly sees him as a means to an end and cares more about the Rogue Sun legacy, while Gwen lets her conflicted feelings on Marcus lead to her mistrusting Dylan. Juliette gives Dylan the emotional support and patience that Gwen should've given him, while providing him with guidance regarding his role as Rogue Sun like Marcus, except Dylan is more open to her help.
  • Happily Married: The only times we ever see Marcus be affectionate is when he's talking to Juliette. She's also seemingly the only person to get a loving message in his will.
    Marcus' will: My life would have been incomplete without you.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Not only does she have knowledge of magical artefacts like Aurie does, but she put together a training regime for Marcus to get and keep him in shape. Juliette does the same for Dylan once she realises that he really needs it and doesn't even know that his powers augment what strength he already has. She was also aware of the fact that fans could track flight paths back to their home, and made sure it didn't happen to Dylan.
    "I was married to your father for fourteen years. I know his routine because I made it. Trust me. I know what I'm talking about."
  • Parental Substitute: Once Dylan moves in with the Bells, she begins acting like his mother. She gives him emotional support, makes him go to school, gets him to be healthier and patches him up after he's hurt.
  • Second Love: She's the woman that Marcus finally settled down with, to Gwen's sadness, since she assumed Marcus abandoned her and Dylan to protect them. They were happily married for 14 years before his death.
  • Secret-Keeper: She was even more involved in Marcus' activities as Rogue Sun than Aurie.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She comes from old money and is very welcoming to Gwen and Dylan. Once Dylan comes to live with the Bells, she organises a training regime for him the same as she did for Marcus, and even pays to have his old car fixed rather than just buy him a new one, assuming it had sentimental value (it didn't).
  • Token Good Teammate: Juliette is the only Bell who isn't an entitled, bratty, manipulative Jerkass. In the first arc, she's the only member of the entire main cast who isn't at any point one of those things; she's the opposite, being very welcoming to the Siegels. Juliette isn't even ever slightly hinted to be Marcus' murderer.

     Aurie Bell 

Aurie Bell

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (cameo) (February 2022), Rogue Sun #1 (full appearance) (March 2022)
The loving daughter.
"He told me that fathers love their children just like superheroes love their cities. So, even though he didn't want to be gone, you have to protect the things you love."

Marcus and Juliette's teenage daughter, who also helped him with his superhero work. Aurie is initially very welcoming to Dylan, and eager to help him live up to the legacy of Rogue Sun. However, after Dylan repeatedly antagonises her, Aurie treats him the same in turn.
  • Big Sister Instinct: While we never see her be particularly affectionate with Brock, when Dylan yells at him and makes Brock cry for stealing the Sun Stone, she gets pissed and reveals that she ordered him to do it rather than let Brock take the heat.
  • Daddy's Girl: She's Marcus' favourite by default, since he had no interest in Dylan and found Brock to be unsettling. When he missed her eighth birthday, she didn't speak to him, and he revealed his identity to her and explained why he'd be so absent. After his death, her focus is honouring his legacy and getting to talk to him again, or at least preventing Dylan from sending him away.
  • Depending on the Artist: Her hair colour. Originally, she had very blonde hair, but it sometimes goes to the darker blonde that Dylan and Marcus have. Then sometimes goes back to the bright blonde.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Once Dylan goes too far with disrespecting their father and makes clear he doesn't care about being a hero, Aurie begins trying to take the Sun Stone from him, seeing him as an ill-fitting successor to her father. Something the comic itself makes vehemently clear is true.
  • Put on a Bus: Juliette sends Aurie to live with her grandmother after her attempted spell on the Sun Stone. While it only brought Caleb out from the Stone, Juliette admonishes her for toying with one of the most powerful objects in the world, and says she can't be trusted to be around Dylan after all she's done.
  • Secret-Keeper: She knew her father was Rogue Sun, and was the most involved with his work. She knew how his powers passed on, knew that his spirit would remain if he died in his armour and even helped him with his superhero work sometimes.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks like Dylan and Marcus.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: After her attempts to help Dylan are rebuffed and he uses her dead dad against her, Aurie stops even trying to be nice to him. From then on, if she helps him, she'll do it with tons of snark. And that's when she's not causing problems for him herself.

     Brock Bell 

Brock Bell

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (cameo) (February 2022), Rogue Sun #1 (full appearance) (March 2022)
The bratty kid.
"You get to talk to my dad whenever you want. But I don't. You get to wear that helmet and follow in his foosteps...but I don't. And it's not fair."

Marcus and Juliette's tween son. Brock was proud of his father and is initially very upset that the Sun Stone doesn't pass to him, but to someone he doesn't know who disrespects Marcus' memory.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Once Brock and Dylan have their little talk over why Brock feels the way he does towards Dylan, Brock goes from cutting insults to just light teasing and pranks.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: It is made immediately clear that he resents Dylan for receiving the Rogue Sun powers. He didn't even like the idea of his sister getting them.
  • Loners Are Freaks: According to Marcus, Brock has very few friends and has even scared some of his teachers. Marcus genuinely believes Brock could've been the one to kill him.
  • Secret-Keeper: Knew his dad was Rogue Sun. It bothered him that he couldn't tell people at school, who would boast about their dads being politicians and the like.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looks a lot like Juliette, in contrast to Aurie who takes after Marcus.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After Brock opens up about his feelings towards Dylan and why he was acting weird regarding "a kid who did a bad thing", Dylan is understanding with him and tells him Brock can have the Sun Stone when he's older. Brock is much nicer to him, though does still like to annoy him sometimes.

The Siegel Family

     Gwen Siegel 

Gwen Siegel

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (cameo) (February 2022), Rogue Sun #1 (full appearance) (March 2022)
The struggling mother.
"You may not have known a version of your father worth knowing, but I did."

Dylan's mother and Marcus' ex-wife. Gwen met Marcus after he saved her from a traffic accident. A few months later, they were married, and then had Dylan. After Marcus went missing for six months, he returned only to tell Gwen he's leaving her. Gwen was left to raise Dylan alone, growing resentful of Marcus and his new family.

After Marcus' death, Gwen meets the Bell family at the reading of Marcus' will, and tries to get her son to act better than his father once he becomes Rogue Sun, but her feelings towards Marcus himself are conflicted.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: According to Marcus, anyway. While he was acting as Rogue Sun, Gwen would assume he was sleeping around. There is at least some lingering jealousy in her by the time the series occurs, as noted by Demonika, fifteen years after Marcus left her.
    Marcus: I left you because I had to. I left your mother because I wanted to.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: We learn from Demonika that she is jealous of Marcus' new family; given what Gwen has said, it's likely directed at Juliette.
    "I told myself that he left to protect us. But of course that theory kinda fell apart when he remarried."
  • Morality Pet: She tries to be one for Dylan, telling him to not abuse his powers and think they let him do whatever he wants like Marcus. Unfortunately for her, it doesn't take.
  • Rescue Romance: Marcus saved her from a traffic accident... and then asked for her number. They married 8 months later.
  • The Resenter: She's resented Marcus for years after he left her and Dylan.
  • Secret-Keeper: Because of how their relationship started, she was in the know about Marcus being Rogue Sun from day 1.


     Dotty Perrine 

Dotty Perrine

First Appearance: Supermassive #1 (mentioned) (February 2022), Rogue Sun #3 (full appearance) (April 2022)
The mystic warden.
"Honey, I am the only thing standing between you and your own personal armageddon."

The owner of Perrine Jewelry, which is secretly where supernatural villains are imprisoned. Dotty is the latest in a long line of wardens for otherworldly threats. She's friends with the Bell family and worked with Marcus, and later does the same with Dylan.
  • First-Name Basis: She insists that Dylan call her "ma'am", but doesn't do the same for the similarly young Aurie.
  • Heroic Lineage: Her family have acted as the wardens of supernatural threats for generations.
  • Secret-Keeper: Knew that Marcus was Rogue Sun, and is quickly told about Dylan by Aurie.

     The Raven Queen (Amber Cardling) 

Amber Cardling

Alias: The Raven Queen

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #10 (February 2023)

Queen of an otherworldly aviary where magical artefacts reside. The Raven Queen has history with the previous Rogue Suns, and seems to have had a complicated relationship with Marcus.
  • The Chessmaster: How she affects the world. She's the person to give people ideas and hints of inspiration.
  • Goth: She leans really hard into the "raven" motif, with a feathery black top. Along with that is leather pants, short jet black hair, and a lip piercing. Given that she's not some ancient being or anything, it may just be a look she prefers.
  • I Gave My Word: While she clearly doesn't want to give Dylan the Quill, she gave her word and so follows through.
  • Secret-Keeper: Knew Marcus was Rogue Sun and also immediately knows Dylan is Rogue Sun, despite his efforts to hide it.


     Byron Fletcher 

Byron Fletcher

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #1 (March 2022)
The unwilling "best friend".
"You stuffed me in a locker! The only person I need protection from is you!"
Dylan's "best friend", Byron is a schoolmate who Dylan forces to do his homework. In return, Dylan promises to keep the bullies away from Byron... and if Byron doesn't take the deal, Dylan bullies Byron himself.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After being bullied by Dylan for who knows how long, despite trying to be nice to him, Byron eventually draws the line when Dylan tries to call off the date Byron only asked a girl out on because Dylan forced him to. He ended up liking the girl, and even if she does have a boyfriend and just wants to go with Byron to homecoming, he still wants to go and refuses to let Dylan take out his anger at Vanessa out on them.
  • Nerd Glasses: Smart enough that Dylan makes him do his homework, and wears glasses.
  • Nice Guy: He's a friendly enough kid, even towards Dylan unless Dylan is actively bullying him at the time. This puts him in sharp contrast to Dylan himself, who he's introduced alongside.
  • Only Friend: He's Dylan's only "friend", or at least anything close to one. Even Dylan doesn't deny it when Aurie calls Byron his only friend.

     Vanessa Myers 

Vanessa Myers

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #1 (March 2022)
The ex-girlfriend.
"I'm mad at you because you're a bully and an asshole, Dylan."

Dylan's ex-girlfriend. Despite Dylan's terrible reputation and attitude, she seems to be fond of him, anyway. Most of the time.
  • Nice Girl: Vanessa tries to be polite to Dylan, who is very pushy. Even when he really pushes it, she tells him that she just doesn't want him to be a dick to everyone.
  • The Noodle Incident: Something to do with a porta potty got her especially mad at Dylan and led to their breakup.
  • Poor Judge of Character: By her own admission, when Dylan asked her out, every single one of her friends told her to say "no" because of all of Dylan's negative traits. She didn't, and now admits that he's been proving them right.
  • Silent Treatment: Is introduced ignoring Dylan outright, and has apparently been giving him the cold shoulder for a while.


     In general 
The villains of the Rogue Suns, who are supernatural and sometimes from other worlds.
  • Hate Sink: Most of them aren't given any sympathetic backstories. Even Hellbent, the one who is, immediately slides off the slope into villainy after getting his powers. This is in steep contrast to Radiant Black, where all but one of the superpowered villains who gets focus does have a sympathetic backstory.
  • Monster of the Week: Marcus' murderer and Suave are the only villains who have recurring roles in the series, the others are usually dealt with within one to three issues.
  • OOCIS Serious Business: The majority of them who've fought Marcus can immediately tell that Dylan isn't him.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: When they're defeated, the Rogue Suns send them to Perrine Jewelry, where they are usually imprisoned in diamonds and put on display. However, they can be released, as Demonika was.



First Appearance: Rogue Sun #2 (dialogue only) (March 2022)

An otherworldly demon that cannot leave its own world, but can empower and tempt others to do its bidding. Mourningstar is the primary enemy of the Rogue Suns, and is in some way responsible for all the supernatural threats in the world. Its calling card is a hand print.
  • Been There, Shaped History: The Devil was named after it, and it brought every supernatural creature into the world and shaped all folklore as a result.
  • Big Bad: Of the series, as is eventually revealed. It's responsible for all the supernatural threats the Rogue Suns face.
  • Deal with the Devil: It seemingly can't force powers on anyone; they need to make a deal, usually for great power.
  • The Faceless: We've never actually seen it. We see its dialogue and an idol that Suave speaks to (and even then, under a cloth), but never the demon itself.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: When someone makes a deal with it, a handprint is burned into their flesh.
  • Monster Progenitor: He is responsible for the existence of werewolves, vampires and other supernatural creatures.
  • Satanic Archetype: His name is a reference to Lucifer Morningstar, he has a habit of making deals with humans and he is the creator of every supernatural creature in existence.
  • Secret-Keeper: Somehow knows the identities of the Rogue Suns.

     Cataclysm (Marcus' Murderer) *SPOILERS* 

Gwen Siegel

Alias: Cataclysm

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #1 (March 2022)
The ex-wife.
"I wanted you to be a hero. I really did. I thought maybe it would bring out all the good I know is inside of you, but I won't let Marcus in your head. I won't let him hurt you like he hurt me."

When Marcus appeared one day suddenly wanting to be involved in Dylan's life, Gwen refused. Marcus said she couldn't stop him from seeing his son if he wanted to. Desperate to keep Marcus away from Dylan, Gwen tracked down his enemies and made a deal with Mourningstar to gain the power to kill him.
  • Anti-Villain: Gwen's just trying to keep Marcus from being a bad influence on their son, and he refuses to take no for an answer. Noble goals... but she went to Suave and then made a deal with a demon to kill him.
  • Colour Motif: Green for envy. When she first appears in front of Demonika, the emotion vampire notes that she smells of jealousy (likely towards Juliette). In the lead-up to the reveal, Gwen is frequently seen wearing green or is close to green fabric, serving as a bit of Foreshadowing.
  • Fatal Flaw: Mistrust. She didn't trust that Dylan wouldn't leave her if Marcus came back into their lives, which led to her killing Marcus. She also doesn't trust Dylan to make his own decisions with the Sun Stone, leading her to try to take it, winding up imprisoned when he stops her. Gwen also thinks that Marcus stole from the villains he defeated (which may or may not be true, but would have been long over by the time of Marcus' death, since Juliette is rich) and Marcus says she thought he was sleeping around when he was acting as Rogue Sun.
  • Hypocrite: She admonishes Dylan for mocking his father, saying that he may have not known a version of Marcus worth knowing, but she did, and they should be respectful. Cut to their last interaction pre-murder, and she's insulting him constantly. In the present day, once she confronts Dylan and Marcus' spirit, she's insulting Marcus through Dylan.
  • Love Makes You Evil: When Marcus re-entered her and Dylan's lives, he was insistent he get to see Dylan again. Gwen refused, given that Marcus left them. Fearing what kind of influence Marcus would have on Dylan, when Marcus made it clear she wouldn't be able to stop him, she sought out his villains, formed a contract with a demon and killed Marcus.
  • Mama Bear: Is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Dylan safe including murdering his father when he won't leave them alone.
  • Woman Scorned: While Gwen acts polite and respectful about Marcus' death publicly, she severely resents him. When he visited her wanting to talk to Dylan, before he can say anything, she's already insulting him. Her character quote on its own makes it clear that she never quite got over him abandoning her, even if she had other reasons for killing him. Dylan outright says Gwen used him as her excuse to hurt Marcus.



Alias: Suave

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #1 (March 2022)
The gentleman thief.
A supervillain with a penchant for robbery. He was a recurring enemy of Marcus', and becomes one for Dylan on his inaugural outing as Rogue Sun.
  • Affably Evil: He's pretty fair to his minions, doesn't kill if he doesn't have to and seems to have had a weird relationship with Marcus. He's also not eager to kick Dylan's ass.
  • The Dragon: Suave serves as one to Mourningstar.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a handprint burned into his face and is very upfront about being evil.
  • Secret Identity: He has one, but Marcus knew it. Dylan not knowing it when he first meets Suave as Rogue Sun is how Suave figures out it's a new person in the suit.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He doesn't do much in the first arc, but it's him who introduced Gwen to the demon that gave her the power to kill Marcus.

     Billy Bludmoon 

Billy Bludmoon

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #2 (March 2022)
The runt of the litter.
A vampire-werewolf hybrid of the Bludmoon clan.
  • Dumb Muscle: Billy is described as being very dumb by Marcus.
  • Flight: Billy can fly by sprouting bat-like wings.
  • Hybrid Power: Billy comes from a clan of vampire-werewolf hybrids. He also gives Dylan a tough fight, nearly killing him in their first two encounters.
  • The Nose Knows: Billy is able to track Dylan for their next fight by following his scent which he picked up from their first fight.
  • Starter Villain: While Dylan fought Suave first, it was a Curb-Stomp Battle he was on the receiving end of on his first night out. It's Billy who's his first proper fight, and the one where he learns the ropes of being Rogue Sun from Marcus and Aurie. Marcus also says Billy is the runt of the Bludmoon clan, and if Dylan had fought any of the others, he'd be dead.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: By Billy's own admission, he has never killed anything besides cows and sheep. While strong, he is also not very bright. Once Dylan gets the drive to fight back, Billy is utterly helpless.



First Appearance: Rogue Sun #3 (April 2022)
The soul-sucking vampire.
A vampiric monster who feeds on the souls of others, prolonging her own life and vitality and depleting theirs.
  • The Empath: Because she feeds on souls and emotions, she can tell how people are feeling
  • Healing Factor: Can heal if she's given enough soul energy to feed off.
  • Killed Off for Real: She's killed via a Neck Snap from Gwen.
  • Older Than They Look: When fully rejuvenated, she looks to be in her 20s. However, Gwens says that she's fought multiple generations of Rogue Suns.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Demonika feeds off of souls, particularly those in emotional turmoil, which shortens the life of those she's feeding from and prolongs hers.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Not normally, but because Aurie bound her not to via magic when releasing her.

     Hellbent (Hunter) 


Alias: Hellbent

First Appearance: Rogue Sun #8 (November 2022)
The loving son.
The vengeful son.
The son of one of Suave's henchmen. After Dylan puts his father in critical condition, Mourningstar offers Hunter the chance to save his father and get revenge on Rogue Sun. Hunter takes it up, along with the name, Hellbent.
  • Foil: He's the opposite of Dylan. Whereas Dylan's father abandoned him and gave him nothing while living it up in luxury, Hunter's father worked his ass of as a henchman to make sure Hunter could get into a good school and do well for himself. The two even both have fire as part of their super personas.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: From a college kid who'd call his father to talk about school and girls to a vengeance-driven, sword-wielding supervillain in the span of a day.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He genuinely loves his father, who did everything he could to provide for his son. It's this love that drives him to become a villain of Rogue Sun.
  • Powers via Weapon: The sword given to him by Mourningstar is the source of his powers.
  • Secret-Keeper: He somehow knows that Dylan is Rogue Sun.
  • Super Strength: Enough that he's able to fight Rogue Sun on even footing.
  • Telekinesis: Seemingly the main part of his power set. He can easily toss Dylan around without touching him, and also crush the Rogue Sun armour.
