I use the pen name of Tiamatty, because I'm not giving my real name out on the Internet. Unless I change my mind. Anyway, I'm a 29-year-old college graduate, having just finished a Library and Information Technician program at Algonquin College, after 7 years working in a call centre (and one year hanging around my mom's house doing nothing but work on The Champions). I'm a big fan of Marvel Comics, which is why I went with a superhero story. I especially like the X-Men, so The Champions has a lot of elements that are basically ripping off the X-Men. Some things are more obvious than others. Since I'm not getting paid for this, I don't feel any shame at ripping off Marvel. If they have a problem with it, then holy crap, that means they learned about this story, and that'd be awesome.

As a fan of the X-Men, I also have a WordPress blog where I review X-Men comics, X-Men X-Pert. I've been reviewing the series from the beginning, and every Wednesday, I do a review of all the X-Men comics that came out that week. If you're into that sort of thing, you can click on over.

Over the year-plus I've been posting this story, I've managed to build up a few regular readers. I've had a couple people message me, telling me the story inspired them to write their own superhero story, which is an amazing compliment. Only one, however, decided to play around with the setting I've created. Miles Montgomery, who has several manga/anime-inspired stories under his belt, temporarily had a story titled Final Justice, a superhero story set in the same universe The Champions takes place in. We've given each other permission to play with each other's characters (coordinating to make sure we don't spoil each other's plans, of course). He used one of mine, and I've used some of his.

And as long as one person's already decided to do a Champions-verse story, I guess I'll say that if anyone else is interested in crossing over with The Champions, let me know, and we'll work something out. There's no fake cities in my story (fake towns, but nothing big), so if you plan on using some, we'll need to make it a cross-dimensional dealie.

And one last note, I have created a forum for discussing the Champions-verse. So, that's an option, if you're interested. There's also a Champions page on TVTropes.

If you've got any questions for me, go ahead and ask. I hope you enjoy reading my work, and I really appreciate all my readers.
