THE FLAME GUARDIAN
With the highly anticipated unveiling of the 30 individual Guardians within the Guardian Project, the Guardian 30 Match-Up is a Facebook application that enables fans to determine the order in which each team’s Guardian will be unveiled. Launched on December 20, hockey fans determine which team wins each match-up, with team superhero character revealed daily.
The Flame, Calgary's superhero, lost a heated Battle of Alberta with The Oiler in Round 1 but crushed The Islander from New York in Round 2 to be revealed on January 19.
Created and developed by Stan Lee, Tony Chargin, and Jake Shapiro, each Guardian has been derived from its corresponding NHL team, complete with special powers representative of each team and city.
The Guardian Project will continue to expand and you will be able to follow our Flame through various mediums, including comic books and digital media, as he fights evil.
All 30 NHl Guardians will be unveiled at the NHL All-Star game in Raleigh in late January.
Below is the story of The Flame and his character.
The Flame is deeply affected by the people of Calgary - he has a strong sense of pride in his city and he takes his position as a representative of Calgary very seriously.
As a result of Calgary being a young city, and one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in Canada, the Flame has a personality that is multifaceted.
One of the Flame’s favorite hobbies is snow skiing, which is ironic considering he’s comprised primarily of fire.
He has a true passion for hockey, which leads him to be an ambassador for the sport.
The Flame is completely resistant to heat and possesses the ability of pyrokinesis. He has the ability to generate heat and flame in his bare hands and can launch fireballs at his enemies. He can also focus flaming lasers from his eyes to melt a specific object or blow a hole through a steel door, concrete wall or bulletproof glass.
He possesses wings made entirely of flames that enable him to scorch his way through the sky.
