Defenders Guild International Summary by robertllynch Defenders Guild International Summary by robertllynch
More concept art for Blue Eagle, the comic I'm working on. It's set in a world basically like our own, but with superheroes. Since it's something of a lampoon of classic superhero tropes, it will feature parodies of/parallels to other comics. I figure the in a world more like our own, the JLA might be a bit more corporate.


The text, in case it's hard to read: 

Defenders Guild International - DGI is an international nongovernmental service organization which directs the efforts of member metahuman and exceptional human agents in crisis response and disaster relief operations. Founded in 1960 as the Defenders Guild of America, The Guild was originally formed as a legal defense and lobbying group after a series of high-profile civil lawsuits against superheroes. In 1963, the Guild was instrumental in the passage of the POWERS act (Protection for Operators While Exercising their Responsibility as Samaritans), which established the federal superhuman registry, and granted explicit legal protection for those registered against civil liability for damages incurred during emergency operations. After the passage of the POWERS act, the guild shifted into a more logistical role, becoming the primary contact point for those seeking assistance from guild members. In 1991, the guild dropped "of America" from their name after welcoming members from Canada and the UK, and in 1999, merged with several other similar organizations worldwide, reorganizing as the current Defenders Guild International. The guild is funded through a combination of government grants, private donations, and membership dues, as well as the sale, production, and licensing of merchandise and media through its subsidiary, Defenders Media group.


Defenders Media Group - DMG is a multi-faceted media agency and acts as the marketing and PR arm of the Defender's Guild. Through DMG Publishing, the sensational exploits of guild members are celebrated in multiple lines of monthly comic books and graphic novels. DMG Entertainment is responsible for production of dozens of popular animated and live-action television series, and since 2008 has produced the critically-acclaimed and action packed films of the Defenders Cinematic Universe. While each of the DGI members retains ownership rights to their own personal likeness and branding, DMG Characters holds an exclusive agreement with all members as a stipulation of their DGI contract that allows the company to license their image for all manner of merchandise, including toys, clothing, home goods, school supplies, and much more.  In addition to his heroic adventures as Defender’s Guild member Blue Eagle, Michael Williams works as a graphic designer within Defenders Media Group.
