The Paul Younger wiki last edited by fesak on 04/14/13 10:45AM View full history

Created by writer Michael Fleisher and artists Steve Dillon and Kevin Walker, The New Harlem Heroes debuted in 2000AD prog 671 (and are not to be confused with the original Harlem Heroes by Tom Tully and Dave Gibbons).

Mysterious and enigmatic leader of the New Harlem Heroes. Deacon was originally sentenced to a short-term 'revolving-door' facility after pleading guilty to minor theft (although it was believed he was protecting the real culprit). He was transfered to Subterranean Penal Colony 14 after killing an assistant warden under unknown circumstances.

Deacon shows exceptional personal bravery, coolness under fire and the ability to take the initiative in taxing situations. Above all he has the skill to meld the highly volatile and individualistic members of the New Harlem Heroes into a cohesive and potentially dangerous fighting team.

The New Harlem Heroes are all criminals serving time in SPC-14, the worst subterranean penal colony on the planet. Here, beneath the dull glow of the halogen arcs, a motley horde of hardcore criminals, politcal dissidents and deviants of every description toil in the mines until they drop dead from exhaustion....

Escape is impossible, but Silver, Slice, Patrice, Trips and Deacon all think overwise - becoming the New Harlem Heroes they want out!
