Meanwhile, in a parallel universe... A few of the kids from The PowerTrip comic have grown up and joined a government subsidized paramilitary "security firm" called Project Zeus.
These young metahuman cadets may get the chance to graduate and join the government sponsored superteam "Condition Red"... if they don't wash out of the program, first.

Move Out!
This is the type of things that Project Zeus trains their recruits for... assisting in crowd control, Emergency services and such during super-battles.

This is all part and parcel of what they will someday become.
Brenda LaSalle, in 'another life', i.e., my other, more 'serious' superhero comics, is actually a villain called "Rift".
She never appeared in PowerTrip, but, I figured, what the heck... She'd probably be a good fit here.

Dawn Murphy, also from the PowerTrip Comic is also a cadet at Camp Garrick.
She made her debut in strip # 42, which, incidentally, is also the same strip Mike first appeared in.
She, and her friend, here, Brenda LaSalle are from Hecate Company.
She, too, went to school with "Stuck-Up Stuckey", and, apparently dislikes him as much as Mike does.
(We wouldn't want you to think Mike was the only one.)
Agent Kevin Stuckey.
Patterned loosely after Captain Kevin Darling.
10 geek points for whoever can tell me the reference point.
Sonny Van Horn
Darryl Van Horn, Jr. aka "Sonny" is a telepath.
He's the first cousin of Garth Carvey.
He is smart, a bit smug sometimes can't tell if his "inner voice" is an outer one via either his telepathy or his mouth. This often gets him into trouble.

I created Sonny and Garth for my old PowerTrip comic to be the opposites of the supers who usually have their powersets.
I note that (male) telepaths are usually bald, or have huge heads, or, sometimes are even monstrous, vs. female telepaths, who are unusually 'hawt', most times. I made Sonny just for the sake of having a normal-looking, even handsome, telepath with a full head of hair.
Looking at Garth, can you tell what his power is?

And, yes, Captain Gaia is a 'milf', but she is extremely respected in her field.
Socks Walker is smiling in the background, because he agrees with Sonny, but was smart enough not to say it out loud.
Agent Wynn's least favorite cadet
Mike Mayhew and Agent Wynn don't get along... can ya tell?
Even moreso, Mayhew DEFINITELY doesn't get along with Agent Stuckey.
On a parallel Earth, right next door to the PowerTrip Universe resides this one:

The somewhat unscrupulous President has outlawed costumed superheroics and metahuman vigilantism on American soil, save for a small select few, who have been officially deputized as government special Marshalls and metahuman ambassadors to alien planets.

The metas who 'play ball' are sent to special training camps - NOT military, as the Geneva Convention has declared metas in the service of any governments military as walking WMD's, and have outlawed them... though the camps are definitely patterned after military protocol, though financed by independent industries, and subsidized by the government as "Learning Facilities', 'Security Firms' and the like. - These camps provide revenue and attention, which the Pres hopes to spin into a re-election campaign.
The cadets (they're not allowed to be called soldiers) all hope to someday graduate into the pseudo-celebrity cadre of superhumans called "Condition Red" - the 'elite' graduates of the program, unofficial branch of the military overseen directly by the President, and the closest thing to a superteam/superpowered army that American can have legally. Or, possibly, to a lesser extent, the "Black Badge" program, which assists police in select larger cities against domestic metahuman threats (supervillains).
