I'm not sure what you mean.  Self-Righteous Preacher fights against the 
evils of gay marriage, pre-marital sex, and internet porn.  He protects 
those poor defenseless stem cells from being murdered.  Some might say 
that he is the most heroic of all the LNH'rs. (Not me of course.  But 
there are lunatics out there.)

Well, ok.  In the real world, they'd probably call them the Teen 
Patriots or something Orwellian like the Freedom Kids.  Not that they'd 
use super teens in the real world to fight terrorism.  The Bush 
Administration in Looniverse Y is a lot more ridiculous than the one in 
the real world.  My Ashcroft would be a lot more goofy and likable than 
the real world one.  He'd sort of be this Uncle Marvel type character 
who has his own superhero suit and is always trying to go on missions 
with the kids.  And they'd always say, "Sorry, Uncle Ashcroft.  We love 
you, but you can't go Arab stomping with us.  You'll just hurt

I suppose maybe they could have originally been created by the goverment 
with another name like say, the Freedom Kids, but eventually found the 
Bush Adminstration to soft on terrorism and went rogue and underground.  
Now they realize that the only way they can save America from terrorism 
is to overthrow the American government.  Becoming terrorists to save us 
from terrorism.

But the Before God Guys were on the Mayflower.

Just so you know, you can't make a character named Irony Man unless you 
can get permission from the person who created Irony Man (not that Irony 
Man's a teenager anyways).  You could create a character called Kid 
Ironic, or Teen Irony or something if you wanted.  I'd like to keep all 
that murky copyright stuff out of Looniverse Y.

Do whatever you want Martin.  I'm not going to be doing anything with 
the Teen Fascists.
