The Guardians of the Dawn are dedicated to bringing humanity to that bright and shining future that is always just over the horizon.


A comic series created by David 2 focusing on members of the "Guardians of the Dawn" supergroup in the Guardian Server.


Issue 0: "The Guardian Exiles"

Although not an actual comic, the text-only story called "The Guardian Exiles" became the basis for the comic series, as well as the focus for the first three issues. It has since been considered canon for the comic series and re-titled as "Issue 0".

Issue #0 "The Guardian Exiles"

Spotlight On: The Guardian Exiles (read)(alt)

Summary: The story describes a "Crisis Event" in 2007 just prior to the events of "Invasion", where strange rips in the fabric of the universe bring three strangers into Paragon City. Two years later they would learn through the help of a mysterious traveler and a member of their own universe of their original identities and what happened that caused them to arrive in the City of Heroes universe.

Guest Appearances: Positron, Rick Davies, Valkyrie, Gaussian, Ms. Liberty, Dark Watcher, Serge

Issues 1-3: "Guardian Exiles"

Continuing from the text story, the first three issues deal with the three members of the Guardians that were considered "Guardian Exiles" from the original "crisis event" of 2007. The three series also have an ever-expanding backstory involving a newcomer named Lyon Powers.

Issue #1 "Fight or Flight"
