Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

I'm nineteen, I can fly, I can flatten ballbearings between my fingers and I'm practically invulnerable to damage. I mean, let's face it... what can possibly go wrong?
—Zenith, Tempting Fate
Cquote2.svg


A Superhero Deconstruction comic created by Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell. Zenith follows teen superhuman turned pop star Robert MacDowell, more popularly known as his stage name "Zenith" or "Superbrat" to the press. Superficial and spoilt rotten, Zenith is recruited by the previous generation of superhumans to fight against the Lloigor. Unfortunately, as cowardly and inept as he is, Zenith is mostly reduced to being a supporting character in his own comic.

The series was initially published in Two Thousand AD, spanning four "phases" between 1987 and 1992. Phase III is particularly notable, since it takes place across The Multiverse and featured a multitude of classic British superheroes, both named and ersatz. An incomplete list can be found here.

 Dr. Peyne: I was forced to shoot the sixth baby. It was an appalling, skinless creature with a dozen mouths that whimpered and bit the midwives.
