Sparty

Sparty

Growing up, Sparty was known to be a pioneer and difference-maker. Even at a young age, he exhibited the skills of someone far beyond his years. His physical strength and athletic prowess allowed him to succeed in competition and his passion in helping others reach their potential made him a natural leader.

He had the ability to uncover the extraordinary in everyone; he would find a common man or woman and instill in them a confidence, courage and intelligence that propelled them to greatness.

Wishing to show the world that anyone, no matter who they were or where they came from, could make an extraordinary impact on the lives of others, Sparty set out to handpick a group that would be known as the Spartan Superheroes. He and his group would lead by example at a chosen place whose goals included solving problems and helping people. This place would be Michigan State University - a college in East Lansing, Michigan. Sparty knew this special educational institution would be a worthy spot for his superheroes to call home.

So, he began his search for the people who would comprise the league of leaders, lifesavers and world changers. He looked for those with the greatest potential and found four very special individuals whose commitment to making the world a better place was evident in everything they did. He also saw in these superheroes the ability to inspire others to follow their lead. He hoped there would be legions of Spartans all over the world doing great things.

Here is how Sparty found his fellow superheroes.

The Sower

The Sower

The Sower, formerly a farmer, was Sparty's first choice to add to the team he was building. Sparty needed someone who was wise and who appreciated the value of hard work to act as the cornerstone of his league of superheroes. He knew the farmer understood the importance of preparing a field to give life to plants and crops, so he saw the farmer's potential in preparing the path that would give life to people's ideas and help grow their dreams.

The Sower was given the following superpower: Seeds that grow solutions to the problem at hand.

The eldest of the Spartan Superheroes, The Sower uses historical knowledge to help allies avoid the pitfalls that have befallen others. After reflecting upon what is needed in a given situation he can plant one of his magical seeds and watch a solution sprout from the earth.

Cognos

Cognos

Cognos was accustomed to illuminating the way for people. She began as a candle maker. An expert in crafting something that was meant to shine light into dark, sometimes unknown places, Sparty knew she'd be the one to keep the flames of knowledge and curiosity glowing bright. Her humble beginnings propelled her to be inventive in her thinking, opening the eyes and minds of others around her to many possibilities.

Cognos was given the following superpowers: Superhuman intellect, telepathy and the ability to change things by using her mind.

Proof that big things come in small packages, Cognos absorbs information from everything around her at an extraordinary rate and transfers that knowledge to her allies telepathically. With her perseverance and ability to reason, she has never faced a challenge she was unable to overcome.

The Muse

The Muse

When he was an art teacher, the Muse was known to inspire his students through creativity and collaboration. Sparty had been searching for an individual who could express emotions, ideas and solutions through various media - and in turn, encourage others to do the same. Because he was a teacher, the Muse knew what it took to help others see their true creative potential.

The Muse was given the following superpowers: Mirrored shield that provides inspiration to solve challenging problems.

He may look powerful, but The Muse's real strength lies in his ability to inspire others to find creative and innovative solutions to the problem at hand. Those who look into The Muse's shield find what they need to successfully navigate even the most challenging crisis.

Epic

Epic, a former Olympian, was tough, determined and passionate in all she did. She had experienced the thrills of competition many times and knew the careful balance of physical and mental strength that was needed to succeed no matter the obstacle. Sparty had found a fierce competitor who he knew would never shy away from a challenge and would always compete intelligently, honestly and respectfully.

Epic was given the following superpowers: Force field shield.

Epic is a fierce competitor who stays one step ahead of her foes by using both her intellect and strategic mindset. Behind the protection of her shield, allies are able to find strength and endurance for the battles that lie ahead.
