Go To

A webcomic created by Scott Austin that uses many of the Nedor characters (and quite a few characters from other publishers). The story takes place in an alternate reality where the allies of WWII lost the war. The Nedor character American Crusader (Archibald "Archie" Masters) is an aging hero collecting DNA from various heroes in an attempt to revive the Golden Age. Many changes have been made to the characters' origin stories and appearances.
