With superhero Cosplay rivalling monster themes for Halloween these days I figured it was a good time to showcase the various superhero pantheons that Balladeer’s Blog has examined in a style similar to my mythology posts.
Sampling: Vixen – She’s part human and part fox … The Jackaroo – Picture a costumed Crocodile Dundee … The Technocrat – She’s a mutant technopath with a flying rocket-skateboard … The Southern Squadron – Australia’s home-made team of superheroes.
Top Hero On List: Dark Nebula – A cosmic and mystical hero whose adventures combine science fiction and the supernatural, like Doctor Strange meets Green Lantern.
Comment: For this list I went ONLY with superheroes created by Australian writers and artists and published in Australia.

Infinite Horizon, with their two newest members
The Israeli superhero team called Infinite Horizon (Adiri Atchelet) has been a sensation so far with readers of Balladeer’s Blog.
As promised, in the near future I will post an article examining the two newest members of the team.
In the meantime here they are on this cover alongside the team members we’ve already met, like Doctor Z’Roa, Splendor, Titan, Gazelle, Professor Fever and Monitor (seen here in his new all-purple costume).

With the Suicide Squad movie hitting theaters, I was reminded again of how comic book-crazed Pop Culture has become. In the spirit of my 2015 examination of Australian-made superheroes here’s a brief look at the ORIGINAL SIX members of the Israeli superteam called Infinite Horizon (Adiri Atchelet).
Ofer Zanzuri created the team in 2004. If the response to this post is as great as it was for Australian superheroes I’ll feature the two newer members of Infinite Horizon.
Secret Identity: Reuben Bachar, MD
Powers: Doctor Z’Roa can stretch and morph his shank limb into a variety of shapes and sizes. Think of him as being a combination of the Marvel Comics hero Mr Fantastic (Reed Richards) and the Marvel Comics villain the Sandman, but with his powers localized in three of his limbs alone. He has elements of DC’s Metamorpho, too.

Comment: The good Doctor’s superhero name comes from Z’Roa, referring to the shank limb portion of the sacrificial meal in Jewish rituals. Reuben Bachar is the family man of Infinite Horizon, with a wife and five children. Continue reading
