Forces of Nature is a webcomic from Black Fox Ross that can be read on Tapastic Here:

The series revolves around a group of siblings that are embodiments of the Seasons of the world and their adventures within said world.

Tropes this Comic provides:

  • All Myths Are True: Mostly Greek Myths, but still.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: The Seasons are somewhere between this and Elemental Embodiment.
  • Bizarre Taste in Food: A lot of the Seasons have some pretty strange ideas for food. Summer really enjoys Seal Meat and Spring enjoys fried flowers for example.
  • Breath Weapon: The Seasons all have some form of Elemental Breath, though it's mostly just Super Breath and Rainy and Summer are the main ones who can use it effectively. Dry and Winter also have fire and ice breath respectively.
  • Berserk Button: Don't mention Western Animation/Frozen around Winter. Just... Don't.
  • Cool Uncle: Quite literally considering the Seasons' uncle is Old Man Winter. Who previously held the title of said Season before Winter and the others were born.
  • Color-Coded Characters and Color-Coded Elements: All of the Seasons have a color palette for their outfit that matches with their respective Season and elemental affinity.
    • Rainy: Navy Blue and Dark Grey (Water)
    • Dry: Red and Light Tan (Fire and Sand)
    • Winter: White and Light Blue (Ice)
    • Summer: Yellow (Light and Electricity)
    • Spring: Green and Pink (Plantlife)
    • Autumn: Orange and Brown (Rapid-aging)
  • Dual Age Modes: The Seasons can change their ages, though Autumn's really the only one you can do it consistently and effectively herself.
  • Elemental Powers: Kind of comes with the whole "Season" package. Along with the usual Weather Manipulation and Limited Time Master Abilities, each Season has kind of their own special ability unique to them.
  • Advertisement:
  • Large Ham: None of the Seasons are exactly subtle in their emotions, to put it lightly....
  • Mother Nature, Father Science: The Seasons' parents are Mother Nature and Father Time, respectively. Though the point still stands somewhat given Father Time's penchant for advanced technology.
  • Cool Shades: Summer. Justified given both her Season and her ability to emit intense light herself.
  • Flying on a Cloud: Their preferred mode of transport. Though Dry's functions more like Super Smoke in practice.
  • Never Heard That One Before: All of them have a couple elemental puns and idioms that they are just stick of being told. Especially Dry and being called "Full of Hot Air."
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Apart from the aforementioned Summer's seal meat and Spring's fired flowers, Dry and Rainy are partial to beef noodle soup and Winter likes hot cocoa.
  • Weapon of Choice:
    • Simple Staff: Summer prefers to use a bamboo rod for her main form of combat.
    • Sinister Scythe: Autumn uses a scythe, befitting her season as the harvest season.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Barring the usual Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors and emotional stability, the Seasons' powers can be temporarily disabled via special magical eggs that were said to be able to ward off inclement weather.
