The Perro Worldwide Comics brand of heroes aren’t like their counterparts at DC or Marvel—aside from the silver-aged cape and tights costumes. These characters work best in a morally gray area. They’re smart, they’re dangerous and they’re sexy. Perro thinks it’s far more interesting if the heroes and villains are both a little morally ambiguous. That makes it tougher to pick a side, and beyond that, predict the ending. It’s not about how many times they can physically defeat their enemy in battle, it’s about lasting drama, and giving the reader a chance to become as invested in making choices as the superheroes. “It doesn’t matter what a character’s superpower is if the story is simply black and white,” says Perro, “I don’t expect our readers to spend much time debating costume choices. They’ll be far more interested in what our characters are doing.” The new home of the Perro Worldwide Universe is online at www.perroworldwide.com. The comprehensive website has production news, character stories, links to movie trailers and superhero recipes, in addition to Perro’s own weekly comic and sci-fi reports.
The original movie that launched the franchise, Mission Park: The Hero Complex, will be released on DVD on August 10, 2011. Launching a multi-media comic franchise seems like a Herculean task for an independent film producer, but Perro is up for the challenge.
