A Legend. An Assassin. A Teenager With Attitude. A Soldier, And a Demon are Earth-X’s last hope. Lets hope they survive the experience.
Summary: Welcome to Earth-X. Where everything that can go wrong, will go wrong. From an invasion of Swamp monsters, to fairy tales coming to life, dinosaurs going on a rampage, earthquakes, and any other dangerous scenario you can think of. Sensing that the only way to save themselves, The Alliance sanctioned Project Excalibur. The creation of an elite team that can defend the earth from all the threats that plague the planet. But unfortunately the recruits have met....unusual ends and with the success rate of the teams going in on the receiving end of failure, the Alliance realized they were running out of time and they decided to scrap the project to further other endeavors.
Not one to sit by and let a good thing die, Dr. Reese Quantum, and his plucky yet lovable assistant Orsay Daniels, decide to finally recruit a team of not just soldiers, but of people that are as equally deadly as the threats they face in order to save everyone and the planet. Stealing classified files and stealing an ancient Norse vessel called Skidblander from Area 51, the duo escape and recruit the team they needed.
They Recruit, ex-superhero Kenny Hudson, Telepathic teenager Fred Jenkins, An Assassin known only as Crow, Reese’s own son Colonel James Quantum, and Lilith, a demon from the depths of hell itself. With their new team, Dr. Quantum leads them on their first mission to stop an invasion from an alien group called the Axis, who are trying to harvest the souls of humans in order to fuel their race and revive their ancient God: THE ONE.Time’s running out, and our new heroes need to step up, or become enslaved to an alien onslaught forever that is if their own personal issues don't screw them over first
We all know the history of Kenny Hudson. Formerly the superhero Scout and current savior of his entire universe from the enslavement of the Greek and Titan Pantheon. With a final rest after all of the death and mayhem, Kenny hung up his cape once and for all, and took off into the sunset with his true love Theo Lance aka The Shroud. Now on an around the world honeymoon, the duo finally get to have the happily ever after that they wanted, but it comes to a screeching halt with Dr. Quantum coming to them asking for help. With a whole universe at stake and his happily ever after put on pause, Kenny wants to handle this threat quickly and effortlessly. But that might be easier said than done, especially with a team full of loose cannons with their own personal agendas.
Winifred “Fred” Jenkins
Born with the ability to read minds, you would think it would be fun, but for poor Fred, its been a hell on earth. Once a popular cheerleader with a multitude of friends, the usual highschool stereotype, her powers manifested during her pep rally and she was hit with a multitude of voices when she asked for the voices to stop she unwittingly shut down the minds of everyone in the gymnasium. Fearful of her new powers, Fred ran to her parents for help, but all it did was lead to more problems when her parents called the S.C.U. (Supers Crimes Unit) to apprehend her. With nowhere to turn all seemed lost, until The Renegades found and protected her. They ferried her away and explained her place in the world and what having these powers mean. With the Renegades, Fred honed her abilities and became a skilled Telepath, and started developing her telekinetic abilities aswell. While out saving another Super from the S.C.U. she runs into Dr. Quantum and Kenny who ask for her help in stopping an alien invasion in another universe. Willing to help people, Fred decides to lend her abilities to the fight, although she might be out of her depth against aliens and alternate dimensions.
An Assassin of Unknown origin. Known only by Crow, Dr. Quantum sent Orsay after this one. Reasons that have not been specified by either party but is questioning to everyone else. As the invasion from the Axis continues, it will be seen if anything about Crow will be revealed.
Colonel James “Jim” Quantum
Growing up, Jim played the Johnny Quest to his father Dr. Quest and did all sorts of journeys around the world to study the strange problems that plagued their planet. However as he started to mature he realized that the threats to his plante needed to be dealt with before it killed them all. With that in mind, he graduated high school early and enrolled in the military and hasn't seen his father for 10 years. Now an adult and outgrown his boyhood fascination of the things destroying their world, Jim trains with other soldiers and any other candidates for the Excalibur program. But with the program yielding failing results, Jim and the rest of the recruits had to return back to their normal military clearance. Feeling like he got jipped on the action of protecting his planet, Jim got the opportunity when his superiors ask him to enact in a mission to arrest his father for treason against the Alliance and contributing to the destruction of the planet. With his secret mission in mind, he easily infiltrated his father’s group and its only a matter of time till he gets a chance to complete his mission
Born in the very bowels of hell itself, Lilith is a demon of great power and respect. As Lucifer’s first demon, she has a special bond with the fallen angel, and was gifted the ability of foresight in order to divine the future for him. Seeing his plans for ascending to the mortal realm being crushed by humans on a ship of some sort, Lilith decided she needed to investigate. As she used the demonic energy from hell, Lilith was able to create a tear in reality to Earth-X where she got embroiled in the conflict between Excalibur and The Axis. As the two sides rage against eachother, Lilith has arrived to ensure that whatever disturbance on this earth caused her masters defeat she would snuff it out regardless of the consequences.
Dr. Reese Quantum
A respected Doctor turned Reluctant Leader, Reese didn't think that he would be leading a group of powered individuals into stopping an alien invasion, more over saving the planet. But when the World’s Government gave up on the Excalibur Program, Reese knew they were missing the wrong equation to get it right. Gathering his bright assistant, the duo created their team and hope to utilize it to repel the invasion of the Axis. But with an unruly son, and others who have different agendas, Reese is going to need to keep his wits about him in order to get through this crisis with himself and his team intact.
Orsay isnt your average 22 year old lab assistant. Sure she has flaws, can be a bit of a hard-ass and can out wit you in a game of texas hold em, but not only is that apart of the girl’s resume, she can also bench press a mountain and shoot photon lasers out of her hands and eyes. See young Orsay is a cyborg. The last of her kind and something of a hot commodity around certain circles. No one knows how Dr. Quantum and Orsay got together, but the two are inseparable and quite frankly a deadly pair when left alone. As Orsay helps the good doctor collect this team of misfits to defeat the Axis, she wonders what's their next move going to be once its all over and the Alliance comes after them.
A group of grey humanoid alien beings that thrive off the soul’s of living things. Seeing how they sucked their universe dry along with several others, The Axis slip through a rift and appear on Earth -X and begin kidnapping humans to harvest their souls. They have a couple of head Axis members leading their armies:
Prince to the soul harvesting race called the Axis. After his father died in a War against a foe of the family, Prince Drakmar took over and led his kingdom to victory after victory conquering worlds and dealing with anyone in his path. After destroying their universe, Prince Drakmar followed a rift in space and wound up in a new universe where he soon sucked it dry and repeated the process when he found another rift. After finally finishing off another universe, he got caught in a cosmic storm that swept him into a black hole that landed him in Earth-X’s universe. As he headed for the planet and started harvesting the human souls, Prince Drakmar thought he had found another world with pitiful resistance.
As Prince Drakmar’s right hand Woman, Sighet is dangerous as she is smart. With skills to defend and protect the prince at any moment, Sighet is an asset worth having.
Prince Drakmar’s back up plan. An armored individual who wears a mask. No one has seen his face, but some are saying that the Monolith is a monster and that his strength comes from his increase in souls. Whatever his deal is, Excalibur must figure out a way to stop him in order to cripple the Axis.
Theo Lance/The Shroud:
Husband to Kenny Hudson and the Superhero The Shroud. After helping Kenny and the others defeat the Greek and Titan Pantheons, he and Kenny ran off into the sunset in order to have their happily ever after. But after being approached by Dr. Quantum to save Earth-X, Theo couldn't say no and dawns his cloak one last time to help out.
The ruling government of Earth-X. Following the Cold War, the Earth’s governments formed into one whole and rebranded themselves the Alliance. As one cohesive unit, the Alliance handled all the threats that plagued the planet, but when their militaries became outclassed by the threats coming to Earth-X, they jump started the Excalibur program. For a time it worked out, but soon most if not all the recruits are killed and the project was stopped before its true potential could be reached. Fearing they are running out of options the Alliance recently started their Plan B: Project Genesis. Something that might be Earth-X’s salvation or their downfall. Although we won't know till the Axis has been dealt with. (While Project Genesis is something that will be brought up, Don't reveal it till the next Volume.)

A/N: Basically the reason why I didnt finish Supergirl. Why I probably wont finish Supergirl, and basically I'm more emotionally invested in finishing this. Especially considering this is the sequel to the Book I'm writing. Excalibur was the first series I came up with and it was the first series that I actually truly gave a damn about. To be quite honest, the only reason why I havent finished any pilots and I only pitch, is because I'm scared. And to be honest starting this back up again is worth me getting over my fears and willing to show what I got. I've done numerous revamps of this series, done several drafts, and this is finally the way I want it to be. I wont be "fan-casting" until it actually gets picked up because I honestly dont feel the need for that right now. I apologize again for not trying harder to get my pitches up and running. But I swear on all that is Pure and Pleasant in this world, I will have a pilot for this
