PRIDE COMICS ENCYCLOPEDIA

This page attempts to identify every character who appears in the comic books Pride High and Kid Olympus, written by Tommy Roddy, and one-offs such as "Reality Check". It is in alphabetic order, with one exception. I like to write encylopedias similar to the telephone book of Iceland -- alphabetized by first name. After all, everyone knows Jorge, but who remembers his last name, Ponce? (Okay, you do. Bite me.) Characters are defined under their heroic names, often with a cross-reference under their 'everyday' names.

Pride High and Kid Olympus, etc., are published by Pride Comics. All information in this wiki are drawn from those sources, which are copyright and trademarked by Pride Comics with the exception of reader guest characters, whose creators are credited in the individual entries. All illustrations are drawn from publications of Pride Comics, and are covered by the preceding. Anything in this wiki that is not covered by the preceding is copyright 2008 by John D. Taylor.

This wiki is not an official publication of Pride Comics. It is a fan-created homage to that body of work. Any errors, lapses in judgment, or offensive remarks are the responsibility of the creator, John D. Taylor. Reporting such to me at jdtaylor00@aol.com will be appreciated. I have attempted to avoid spoilers that would reveal that something in a subsequent issue will invalidate something in a previous issue, but sometimes they slip in, or it is necessary that they appear. I apologize for any spoiled surprises.

Italicized words indicate a related entry. Creators are identified by real name, if known, followed by board name in parentheses if known. If only the board name is known, it appears instead of the real name. For an explanation of 'board name', see the entry under 'board name'.

In PH 7 they are seen in one panel against Lili'uokalani. Individual members may appear individually.
Their name (and battle-cry) refer to the mythological Argonauts, who sailed with Jason aboard the Argo to win the Golden Fleece.

Beowulf
Everyday identity Beowulf Johansson.
Incredibly strong member of the Argonauts, descendant of legendary hero Beowulf. He also has some kind of 'super-breath' power. He is a bully with a cruel sense of humor. He seems to be engaging in a clandestine romance with Scotch Bonnet. He appears on the cover of PH 1, and in the stories in PH 1, 2, 3 and 6. He makes a very brief cameo in PH 4, and appears in a one-page with the team in PH 7.

Beowulf Johansson
Everyday identify of Beowulf.

Bert Ash
Everyday identity of Barn'cle. Note: for what it's worth, 'Bert Ash' is a play on words, referring to an American Indian custom.

Black Coral
Member of the Champions of Atlantis. Daughter of a Japanese pearl diver and an Atlantean explorer, she easily passes for fully human. Named after the razor-sharp coral she can create at a moment's notice. She appear in PH 5, and makes a one-page surprise appearance at the end of PH 7.
Created by William Indigo Northwest.

board name
A name used on the Pride High Board in place of a member's everyday name. In this wiki it is the name inside parentheses following a character creator's real name, if known; otherwise it is the name used to identify the character's creator.

Bouncer
Everyday identity Wade Jeffries.
Member of the Hackers, he is a double amputee equipped with extendable cybernetic legs designed by his older brother Screw. He appears in PH 4, as well as having cameos in PH 5 and 6, and appears in a one-page with the team in PH 7. He is Kid Olympus' adoring lab partner. He is very young and enthusiastic, not to say 'bouncy'.

Bracer of Haephestus
Armlet which gives Kid Olympus amazing strength in PH 2. It is summoned by the bracer on his right arm, and may be said bracer, or may replace it when in use. The bracer on KO's arm gives him weapons from the Olympic gods. All of these weapons have not been identified, and it is not known if the bracer he always wears is 'the Bracer of Haephestus' or if it replaces the standard bracer. The former would appear to be correct. The powering of the bracer seems to be the focus of KO 1.

Bradley Thomas Thayer
Everyday identity of Cascade.

"Calamari"
A one-page joke panel by Polawat Darapong in PH 7.

cameo
Shorthand for "cameo appearance", a very brief appearance, usually only one or two panels and without important dialogue. "He makes a cameo (appearance)...", "she is in a cameo (appearance)...", "it has a cameo (appearance)..." 'Cameo' also describes a brooch with a raised image; that definition is never meant when used in this wiki. He doesn't make a brooch, she isn't in a brooch, it doesn't have a brooch.
Identification of an appearance as a cameo is arbitrary, capricious and subjective on the part of the wiki writer.

Cameron Ashton
Poseidon Prep student, and son of two super-villains. He is a powerful empath. He appears in PH 5 as Kid Mischief's lab partner, and has important information. He makes cameo appearances in PH 6, the second of which is somewhat significant. He has an important role in PH 7, has a fight with Kid Mischief, and reveals some very personal information.
Created by Feargal Keenan (Hellion).

Capp
Everyday identity Antoinne Capp.
Member of the Five-Fold Path, and appears with them in PH 7. Roommate of the mysterious Jeremy. He appears in cameo in PH 1 and has dialogue in PH 3. He makes a small cameo, and is also discussed, in PH 7; it is pretty well determined that he is not gay. He also appears with his team. He often wears a Canadian tee-shirt.
Created by Bradley Clutts ('rpgcub').

Captain Lucky
Leader of the Legends. He is mentioned in PH 3, and makes a cameo appearance in PH 5. He is actually a cross-over from a super-group found at www.luckylegendary.com.
