Runabout of the WatchGuard universe

Diggin' the character design below.  It was (still is, I guess...) located in a message board post related to a role-playing game called Mutants and Masterminds.
Sneak peek at new art for an upcoming WG supplement!!
Sponsored by the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command's metahuman task force (Designate: M) in Quebec, and HQ'd in Manitoba, this is an elite, military-based & led, metahuman special missions force operating within the WatchGuard Universe. More to come on these guys soon!!

"Runabout", art & design by Kevin Sharpe, inks by Troy Zurel, Colors by Eddy Swan.

Glad Charlie McElvy didn't call him Runaboot. :-/

It is still a little unclear to me whether Watchguard is "only" a supplement to a role-playing game or that and also an actual comic book yet to be produced.  A website called would seem to indicate that the latter is part of the overall plan but for the moment at least there is no such material available.

Runabout isn't included on the sourcebook cover, and the description above makes him/them sound like his/their appearances will be occasional, so we'll keep him/them in the "prospect(s)" category for now.

If you want to have a look at some of the other characters in the WatchGuard universe, these t-shirt designs make for a good sampler.  Runabout would look good on a red background, eh?
