With the mysterious return of Canada’s founding father, John A. Macdonald, Canada is elevated to a new age of independent national growth, bringing with it a heightened sense of unrest. There have been many assassination attempts on the Prime Minister’s life as a result of his revolutionary agendas. Many of these attacks have employed super-humans, resulting in the government’s ever growing dependency on Canada’s Premier Super Team, The True North Guardians. However, while an appointed meeting between the Prime Minister and the Maple Leaf takes place to discuss the growing superhuman threats, The True North Guardians are eliminated in one fell swoop. Witness the birth of a new age of heroes, from the ashes of the old.
The Group of Seven is a Canadian Superhero Comic Book set to unfold in 7 Acts. Its narrative structure is unique in so far as each issue (or act) contains three scenes, 7 pages in length, with character biographies separating each scene. These biographies serve a dual function; they provide a rich tapestry of back-story in an immediate and effective manner, and these back-stories serve as direct lead -ins, which relate to the conflicts, situations, and character motivations, at hand.
