Roy...all praises to your Arkham files. It is really fun to read your takes on classic Batman villains. Is your project for Arkham closed? I was hoping to see your inputs on Calendar Man and Calculator for the longest time.

Journal History

Alright, so if you haven't seen DCEU's most recent release, "The Suicide Squad", have no fear. I won't discuss spoilers here. No, what I want to talk about here is Earth-27's Task Force X, aka: "Suicide Squad". But we'll get to that soon enough. Oh, and before we detour away from the subject, if you want to know, I have seen the movie and my thoughts on it are if you want to see it, go see it yourself. My opinion is irrelevant to your enjoyment of the movie. But if you are on the fence about it and want to know what I think, shoot me a message. I'll gladly have that discussion with you... or if I get too many such messages, I guess I'll make that a journal entry this weekend.

So... We have less than a month to go until we see the return of Earth-27 with new character portraits and completely new material. We also have less than four months until the debut of Earth-27: 2027. We've got the first seventeen or so characters sponsored and Phil's already started working on them. But there's so much more that need sponsoring. The Young Justice characters haven't got much love and there's still plenty of other heroes and villains to choose from on the list.
And it's because of this, that starting August 15th, I will be condensing the character list available for sponsorships. I have loved being able to cater to everyone's independent whims of which characters they want to see next, but I am afraid it makes the story of the setting seem a bit hap-hazard and all over the place. Which is fun for me but I also feel it's confusing for some of you guys.
So, because of this, I will be streamlining the character lists. Anyone who has donated money for a part-sponsorship, I will retain your character on the character list available for sponsorship.
I will also keep open a couple slots for "wish-lists" with every wave, but going forward if you pick a character off the approved list, just know that your character might be postponed for a while due to the limited number of these "wish-list" slots which will be available. But have no fear, if the "wish-lists" become so large to take up the size of an entire wave, then I will release an entire wave of these fan requested characters, but I REALLY don't want that to be the norm of Earth-27 anymore.

I don't know. Maybe this is a bad idea. Maybe it's unrealistic. Maybe I just committed franchise suicide. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below.
Speaking of suicide... Let's talk about Suicide Squad. Not the movie, but the team as they are in Earth-27.

In Earth-27, Task Force X is now based out of Arkham Asylum due to the facility now belonging to ARGUS. The team was still created in Belle Reve, they've just been relocated. The reasons for this move have been explained as being tied to ARGUS' headquarters in New York City, the proximity of the Hall of Justice, the population density of suitable Task Force recruits housed in Arkham, and having a saturation of crimefighters (particularly the Batman) located in Gotham.
So, enough about the prison. Let's talk about the prisoners. The Suicide Squad roster in Earth-27 is ever-changing. Often changing as needed for the operation, but Waller keeps between a dozen to twenty candidates in the program at all times. I would love to go on about their history, but I am still trying to figure out if we're doing a series of "ARGUS Files" which feature the backstories and operational history of the Squad, so I will just talk about the highlights.
Here's a few of the team's more important members.
-The Riddler
-Deadshot
-Harley Quinn
-Killer Croc
-Captain Boomerang
-Killer Frost
-Cheshire
-Bane
And aside from prisoners, we should also mention Waller, Rick Flagg, and a bunch of ARGUS support staff.
Most of my inspiration for E27's TFX has been the comics, Arrow, and the superb "Assault on Arkham" animated film. If you haven't seen that movie, go see it! It remains my favorite portrayal of the team to date.
Okay, so aside from ARGUS and the prisoners, there is one more element of the Suicide Squad. That is, the heroes. From time to time, Waller will "contract" a hero for to help Flagg corral the villains in. Waller doesn't just go to the Watchtower and say "Hey, Palmer, Queen, and Allen! Come with me!" No, she keeps tabs on three to five heroes at a time who are in a "dark place" and can be persuaded to help the Task Force discreetly for a variety of reasons (bribery, blackmail, what have you). Some of the team's heroic alumni include Katana, Arsenal, Ravager, and Red Hood.

I'm sorry if this isn't the most composed or informative Update. It's late at the time of writing this and I really wanted to get an update to you guys since I've been neglecting these lately. I will say that after seeing the Suicide Squad movie recently, I am excited to explore the E27 team in more depth and hopefully I can figure out if we're going forward with the ARGUS Files or not in the next few weeks.

Until then... I look forward to reading your guys' comments. Seriously, I love hearing from you guys and the main reason I do these updates is to stir up some conversation to get some feedback from the community. I love interacting with you guys. Thanks again for sticking with me through this summer break. I am so excited to get back into the regular swing of things next month.

I hope you guys are ready too. The villains are going to come in swinging!

Hey all. Three things. Two announcements and one clarification. All good news!
Hawkman and Carter Hall have been sponsored. You will be seeing him soar into Season Two shortly after the Reign of Villains.
Also, Grifter and Cole Cash are now only $30 away from sponsorship. I am sure he will help usher in his "wild" friends soon.
Finally, in the previous anouncement, I mistakenly said we'd give y'all a sneak preview for Season 2 at $6000 on the GoFundMe page. That was a whoops. I meant $4000!
Last I checked, we are less than $300 from that micro-goal.
It is now official. Earth-27 Project's next GoFundMe Reward Goal is set to unlock variants of Harley Quinn and Killer Croc, as well as unlocking Rick Flag and El Diablo.
Check out www.gofundme.com/Earth27projec… today. Also, as a bonus, if we get to $4000 by the 1st, Phil and I will release a special Season 2 Preview piece.

Fans and friends, I am going to be experimenting with some ways to interact with you guys. The first such experiment will start tomorrow. If you have a PS4, feel free to shoot me a friend request at the username Roysovitch. I will be doing an informal Q&A tomorrow (Thursday, Aug. 25) from 11 AM to 3 PM, Eastern Standard Time, while playing Grand Theft Auto Online. If you can make it, I'd love to rob some banks or race some cars with you. If you don't own the game, but do have the system, feel free to friend me anyway and we will maybe do a game you do own next time... or drop in the party to ask questions.
If this works out, I may make gaming with the fans a fairly regular activity.
If you don't own a PS4 or have suggestions for future games or other fun ways to interact with you, let me know in the comments below.
Looks like Suicide Squad is leading but it is still close. I will give the poll until the end of the week before I declare a winner.
If you have any suggestions for reward goals, let me know. If there are good ones, maybe I will do a poll of fan suggestions versus the top three in my poll.
Only caveat to a submission is it needs four portraits as this is the fourth reward

Id Ra's is in your Beyond line. I'd imagine he'd be pulling a Mr House (From New Veges) hooked up to a machine because his body can no longer be revived with the pits.

If you've got time I was wondering how Ra's and Falcone are pronounced on Earth-27. (Raysh/Roz, Falcone/Falconi etc)

Personal preference, Ra's al Ghul to me has always been "Roz al Ghoul". Not only is it simpler, but I feel it sounds cool, too.
Much the same, Carmine Falcone is "car mine fal cone." I do not like "fal cone ee" as I think it sounds silly when you consider the other big crime boss of that era is Maroni... and saying "fal cone ee" and "ma rone ee" too close together just makes me roll my eyes.

That being said, that is merely my interpretation. People are free to read it however they want... until I start doing recorded VOX boxes with voices. ;)

Cool. I share the same thoughts in regards to Falcone and Maroni rhyming. I prefer Raysh because I grew up on the animated series, but Roz makes more sense to me.

Does an Arkham Asylum event happen in Earth 27? And if so, is it more like Morrison's graphic novel or the video game?
