Lost in the mists of time, home-grown British superheroes once entertained and enthralled millions of kids. Now, the likes of Adam Eterno, Blake Edmonds, Thunderbolt the Avenger, and The Leopard from Lime Street are coming back to make summer 2018 blazing hot!

The Vigilant will be a special one-shot title this August which resurrects classic heroes from the Fleetway/IPC comics of the 1970s – reborn and updated for a new generation to enjoy!

Written by Simon Furman (Transformers) with art by Simon Coleby (Jaegir, Judge Dredd) and other guest creators, when the evil forces of Von Hoffman and Dr Mesmer team up and pluck the immortal Adam Eterno from the winds of time, all of reality is under threat!

Only The Vigilant – a mighty team composed of super-beings, warlocks, warriors and monsters – stand between civilisation and total chaos! Join The Leopard from Lime Street, Steel Commando, Dr. Sin, Pete’s Pocket Army, Blake Edmonds, Yāo and Thunderbolt the Avenger on their premiere adventure!

Superheroes are something 2000 AD hasn’t really done in the past (with a couple of exceptions) – but this is the beginning of what we’re dubbing the ‘Rebellion-verse’, an interconnected world of superheroes but with a very British ethos and outlook.

Available from newsagents in the UK on 15th August, The Vigilant will also be available to order from comic book stores through Diamond Distribution in the April edition of Previews.

171: Red Robin / Tim Drake

Tim Drake was the third person to serve as Batman's sidekick Robin. Though he carried on a rich comic book tradition, he redefined Robin's role. He served as a detective, Computer hacker, and overall more intellectual Robin. Tim Drake is a character that always emphasizes smarts over guts. As he felt he became his own hero, he added Red to Robin to create a moniker that was all his own.

170: Squirrel Girl

Created in 1992 in order to bring a little fun back into comics, Doreen Green definitely made her mark in the Marvel Universe. With all the proportional abilities of a squirrel, she may not seem very impressive, but don't make the mistake of underestimating her. Squirrel Girl's list of victories may be the most impressive in all of comics, proving that you can't judge a squirrel by it's cover.

163: Miracleman with Bruce

Miracleman was originally just a substitute for Captain Marvel created by Mick Anglo for British audiences of the 1950's, but in 1982 Alan Moore re-invented the character for modern audiences. Originally known as Marvelman, Miracleman went from a second rate impostor to one of the greatest examples of modern comic book heroes in just 16 issues, before being handed off to the wonderful Neil Gaiman for a second re-invention that is reaching a whole new generation of comic readers via Marvel reprints (and hopefully some forthcoming new stories).

This is a high concept comic about a World War II tank that is haunted by the ghost of a confederate general from the American Civil War, and it just happens to be crazy enough to work. Over the years the concept was re-imagined to better fit in an updated version of the DC universe, but one thing is constant - a Tank that is haunted is a crazy idea!
