History: In 1966 the world first became aware of superhumans amongst them, when one appeared in the Ukraine. A year later, in 1967, Professor Herman Bremmer coined the term "Neo-Genetics" to describe the study of what was fast becoming a global phenomenon. By the early 21st century the U.S had gathered together a unit of these superhumans - the Neogenic Task Force (NTF), or Neo-Force, among them the speedster Blur (Captain Ashley Blair), fast enough to run on water.
Comments: Created by Mike Penny and Jason Rand.
Originally debuting in a four issue series from Dakuwaka Productions, the Helios story moved over to Speakeasy Comics with the recent release of "Helios: In With the New", before returning to Dakuwaka (after Speakeasy went out of business) for "Helios: Under the Gun".
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
Neo, the One, within the Matrix
