He's some sort of ninja. A well-dressed ninja.

"You're not gonna help us?"
"Nah... warehouse doesn't have an access ramp."
"Wow, that... is a huge oversight."
The Armeniman and El Chupacabre

Goodwill Heroes was a webcomic that details the adventures and exploits of the Goodwill Heroes as they attempt to fight crime using a variety of non-standard methods. It updates every Monday and officially began in April '11. They are currently on the second chapter of the first book, Second-String Superheroes.

The always-increasing cast of characters includes, so far:

  • Jazz Man: a suspender-wearing, chops-sporting jazz musician who speaks entirely in scat.
  • El Chupacabre: a 70s porn magician.
  • Well-Dressed Ninja: a mute ninja with an eye for fashion.
  • The Armeniman: a wheelchair-bound Armenian with a cock shotgun.

The comic vanished from the internet some time after January 2012 and no archive has been found.

This comic provided examples of:

  • Anti-Role Model : The Armeniman isn't above shooting a man in the cock.
  • Author Avatar : The Goodwill Heroes officially began when five friends went to a superhero-themed Halloween party. As such, almost all of the characters are based on either the authors themselves, or friends of the authors. You'd actually be hard-pressed to find a character not based on anyone in particular.
  • The Big Damn Kiss : Parodied at the end of a page.
  • The Blind Leading the Blind : The Armeniman is the group's mentor, but he's just as bad at crimefighting as the main cast.
  • Bloodless Carnage
  • Bond One-Liner : Chupe does this when throwing a medicine ball.
  • Bonus Material : Weldren updates his twitter just as often as the comic gets updated. His twitter account can be seen here.
  • Butt-Monkey : El Chupacabre.
  • Caper Crew : The Meanie Men.
  • Cliffhanger : Practically every page in the first chapter ended in one of these.
  • Cunning Linguist : El Chupacabre to Jazz Man, as he is the only person capable of understanding Jazz Man's scatting.
  • Fanservice Extra : The montage scene has a couple of characters that don't make any sense given the context of the scene.
  • He Who Must Not Be Heard : Weldren is The Speechless and Jazz Man is The Unintelligible.
  • Hot Librarian : One of the characters is named the Sexy Librarian. Yeah.
  • Improbable Weapon User : Weldren with his fashionably stretchy tie.
  • Loser Protagonist : The entire GWH team.
  • MacGuffin : No one knows exactly what the Meanie Men are stealing in the first chapter. Everyone just assumes the unicorn-marked boxes are drugs.
  • Montage : A page.
  • Narrator : The first chapter is hard to understand, so the authors added a narrator to complement some of the first few pages. Unfortunately, she gives up during Jazz Man's psychedelic jazz off against the Meanie Men.
  • The Pornomancer : El Chupacabre is a 70s porn magician who fights with condoms, dildos, and, if the situation calls for it, his long, hard wood.
  • Wall of Text :
    The Librarian uses one on a page.
    The collection of trashy romance novels listed on a page.
