The series is set in an Alternate Universe Earth, where supers exist and all denizens are anthropomorphic animals, with many stories situation around the titular city of Colmaton, though stories dealing with other cities, fictional or otherwise, do exist. Due to the number of super powered individuals, there are a large number of Superheroes and Supervillains, leading to a diverse cast of characters with their own stories and intentions. The group is made up of various authors and artists working together to further expand the verse, with the main location for the artwork and stories being in


The series as a whole contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Considering a good majority of the heroes of this verse are female, this is abundant.
  • Adventure-Friendly World: Somewhat downplayed in that while the need for heroes is a real thing, there are a number of restrictions here and there. Not to mention the issues with the Registry System.
  • Alternate Universe: Colmaton is an alternate earth where superheroes are real and all sentient beings are anthropomorphic animals called Furs. Furthermore, there are alternate universes of Colmaton.
  • Artifact Title: Most stories are centered around the titular city of Colmaton.
  • Badass Normal: Any notable super, hero or villain, who has no powers yet is still able to be a notable name in the verse.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Its a superhero universe. This is a given.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A given considering the nature of the verse.
  • Advertisement:
  • Freudian Excuse: Pops up from time to time in various villains.
  • Government Conspiracy: The BOS is well-intentioned, at least, but there are other organizations within the government with more horrifying plans, i.e. Project Offspring.
  • Heroic BSoD: Due to the fact that Colmaton is a more realist take on the superhero world concept, this happens to various heroes from time to time.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Due to the popularity of the verse, a LOT of authors/artists have added their characters into the group, resulting in this.
  • Official Couple: Due to the number of characters, and the various interactions, this is a given.
  • Random Species Offspring: Most offspring of Furs of different species look like one or the other, with gender playing no influence.
  • Superpowerful Genetics: The descendants of supers are more likely to develop powers than the general population, but their powers tend to be random with same power inheritance more of an exception than the rule.
  • Superpower Russian Roulette: The Calypso Blue virus causes those exposed to have this.
  • Super Registration Act: One of the key aspects of the world. As a result, supers in general are divided into 'Registered' and 'Unregistered'.
  • Super Team: Par the course in a world full of supers. The most notable being the organization known as the "Bureau of Superheroes" (BOS for short)
  • Tome of Eldritch Lore: The Libris Lacunae
  • Ungrateful Townsfolk: Pops up from time to time, as many times civilians show little issue with ridiculing and/or humiliating the very heroes and heroines that protect them, and in some cases turn on them the moment it seems like they've gone rogue, past experiences be damned.
  • World of Funny Animals: Everyone in that world is a Fur, an anthropomorphic animal.
