The X-Folks are a couple of geriatric superheroes
from the good old United States of America
. Together this elderly
couple, composed of Maw and Paw, battle Nazis
and other criminals
from around the world.
They were originally started as a joke on Order of Chaos BBS
back in the early 90's. I had been in BBSing for quite a while at that point, and when I heard someone complaining about how slow a 2400 baud modem
was, I told them darn whipper-snappers
how it was back in my day
... on a 300 baud smartmodem
, using an ancient 8088 XT
... He in turn replied with "Gee, Paw, tell us what it was like durin' the war...
"... so I played along... and somehow, this strange conglomeration of bad puns and sick humor ended up forming into the heroic adventures
of a man named Paw
, his hatred of Nazis
, and his love/fear relationship
with his wife --and battle companion-- Maw
It was after that I decided to write more about his adventures... only, they needed some catchier name... along came Dr. Deranged
who suggested X-Folks
... somehow, it just made sense at the time...
In any case, the first Chapter of the X-Folks Saga has been noded. X-Folks: The Namnazi War
, depending on how well it is recieved, I might post the others...
