About Jack Flash: Control of lightning/electrical energy. Stylistically trapped in the ’80s, hence the white jacket with rolled-up sleeves and fingerless gloves. Relies on his insulated sculpted rubber body armour to disguise middle-age spread. Theme tune: cross between a cheap rip off of Axel F and the Automan theme.

Partnered with the MoD’s most advanced tactical computer; given access to cutting edge weaponry and blessed with athletic prowess, Kurtis became more than the man who lost his legs helping people – he became a hero, a hero known as Steel Monkey.

About Bloodstrife: James Lee is known to his enemies as Bloodstrife. He has the power to materialise his own blood at will. Each creation uses up his own blood depending on how much is needed and how much his blood supply can handle. He needs to concentrate while using matter, or else it spills.
He regenerates blood but it takes time depending on blood loss. The more blood his uses, the whiter his hair and complexion will be at the time. When he creates and uses a weapon, he masters its use instantly and becomes exceedingly powerful.
Edgar Wright Says: "A character who can transform his own blood into weapons is a intriguing and macabre concept. One can imagine the anime adaptation and Bong Joon-ho live-action version. I worry a little bit that him cutting himself to defeat his foes could be controversial, but I like the idea of an anaemic superhero. His foe could be Haemoglobin. You can have that."

About Meat Man: Super human strength, super human agility and invisible skin.
Edgar Wright Says: “A scientist vigilante who’s quest for justice led him to experiment with becoming Muscle Man, but ends up with the raw, unsettling vision of Meat Man. Somewhere between Frank from Hellraiser and Super Meat Boy, the boffin known as Eric Salt looks quite vulnerable as the skinned-alive superhero.
"I would like to see his medium-rare adventures, but am afraid he will cook in the sun. Either way this is bloody good, very well done and other assorted steak puns.”

About Roadkill: He gains the abilities of animals by collecting the body parts he finds and carries on his person.
Edgar Wright Says: “A superhero who usurps the power of spirit animals who have been left for dead on the road? Count me in. Finally a vigilante who stands up for the rights of the mammals and reptiles who are thoughtlessly killed by heartless drivers every day. I’d like to see Roadkill use the following in battle: the venom of the rattlesnake, the spines of the hedgehog, the couldn’t-care-less attitude of the cat.
"The movie could be a badass revenge epic to double-bill with Watership Down . I once hit a rabbit when I was 18 years old in my Vauxhall Chevette. I am not proud of it and deserve to be smitten to death with Roadkill’s avenging rabbit foot.”
