|Master Defenders was created by Matt Bhanks during his final year of elementary school. In his senior year of High School, he wrote a short story with the same title and similar plot. The Master Defenders short story never got published, but it helped Matt enhance the plot a little more by adding other characters from his childhood. In the short story, the concept of the Pixaliemain rocks remains the same, except there is no corrupted alliance that counters the team. The antagonist, Governor Cain X, is not mentioned. The short story runs for only seventeen 8.5"x11" pages. Major villains from the novel are not apparent and the Directors of the Universal Plagues were not important at the time. The novel gives readers a better understanding of the heroes and their past struggles. All fifteen heroes are the same, except the way Cyfreid acquires them are different.
After getting the first novel out in July, 2013, Matt also went further by become an entrepreneur for Master Defenders products. The merchandise includes the books, t-shirts, posters, and snapbacks. With the sequel on the horizon, only time will tell how the epic journey the Master Defenders are venturing will end. Copyright © 2014 MB Realms Entertainment All Rights Reserved.
