|'''The Masked Phantom''' - Active in the early part of the century, the Masked Phantom was an occasional part of the Society of Gentleman Adventurers. He has He hasn't been heard from since the Great War, though it is possible that he had retired peacefully, as his identity was unknown even to his teammates. It is true, however, that the rest of the team was tracked down by the young Red Panda when he was completing his training<ref>see [[Merlin's Tomb]]</ref>. The fact that there is no record of an encounter between the Red Panda and the Masked Phantom suggests the possibility that the M.P. did not survive the many secret missions he undertook in the war<ref>http://audiodramatalk.com/showpost.php?p=12888&postcount=27</ref>.

In the '30s Montreal was actually a bigger city than Toronto, and as such, they had their share of mystery men. There was a good deal of bad luck on the subject though, and there were at least four different self-appointed champions that fell during in the period before the war. There is a small section of the old Mont Royal cemetery that commemorates them, but these days it is sadly neglected and seldom visited<ref>http://audiodramatalk.com/showpost.php?p=10286&postcount=3</ref>.

The West was more the home of vigilantes than superheroes, though several did wear the classic domino mask of the mystery man. The only one active that was known to posses actual powers was [[the Grey Fox]] - possibly the RPA Universe analogue to the [["Alternate Universe" Red Panda Mini-Series|Vancouver Vixen]], as they had similar costumes and territory<ref>http://audiodramatalk.com/showpost.php?p=10286&postcount=3</ref>.
  +
  +
One of the most effective lawmen-outside-the-law active in the west at that time was also one of the most mysterious. He kept the peace in Regina according to his own rules with a pair of booming .45's. The newspapers called him the "Dark Angel", though they never adopted it as an according to Hoyle codename, and if the mystery man in question ever used the name himself, there is no record of it. He appears to have operated without any sort of confidant, and kept no case files or log of his own exploits as so many did, and as a result, almost nothing is known about him today... but he was active at least from the summer of '31 through to the start of the war, after which nothing more is known. Some say he joined up, possibly with the The South Saskatchewan Regiment, but there is little evidence to support those claims one way or another<ref>http://audiodramatalk.com/showpost.php?p=10286&postcount=3</ref>.
  +
  +
The East Coast had it's share of mysterious operatives and avenging angels, but it the absence of a large urban environment makes it difficult for the classic mystery man to emerge. There were several operatives in Halifax and at least one in Moncton, but few were active for very long and records are spotty at best<ref>http://audiodramatalk.com/showpost.php?p=10286&postcount=3</ref>.

The Justice Union
An American team of superheroes working primarily out of New York. They operate out of the belief that the mystery men community needs regulations and order, otherwise they are nothing but dangerous vigilantes. Such a belief lends credence to the possibility that they are a government-sponsored, or at least government-sanctioned, team. Despite their focus on teamwork and cooperation, they have a somewhat contentious relationship with the rest of the superhero community. Not all of the reasons for this have been explained, but it is partly due to actions such as the Kirkhouse Resolution against Alternate Superteams. This led to an embarrassing confrontation in which the Society of Gentlemen Adventurers came out of retirement and, as the Red Panda put it, "handed you your big silly hats."

The Society of Gentlemen Adventurers
One of the original groups of Mystery Men.[3] Though most are currently in retirement, the Red Panda tracked them down in order to have them teach him whatever crime fighting skills they possessed.
List of Known Members

      The Stranger - Status: Banished The secret identity of Maxwell Falcone, world famous stage magician and illusionist.[3] He set out to learn how to use real magic and, against the wishes of the Council of Mages, used his powers to "interfere in the corporeal world"-- otherwise known as "fighting crime."[4] Voiced by Peter Higginson.
      The Masked Phantom - Active in the early part of the century, the Masked Phantom was an occasional part of the Society of Gentleman Adventurers. He has He hasn't been heard from since the Great War, though it is possible that he had retired peacefully, as his identity was unknown even to his teammates. It is true, however, that the rest of the team was tracked down by the young Red Panda when he was completing his training[5]. The fact that there is no record of an encounter between the Red Panda and the Masked Phantom suggests the possibility that the M.P. did not survive the many secret missions he undertook in the war[6].

In the '30s Montreal was actually a bigger city than Toronto, and as such, they had their share of mystery men. There was a good deal of bad luck on the subject though, and there were at least four different self-appointed champions that fell during in the period before the war. There is a small section of the old Mont Royal cemetery that commemorates them, but these days it is sadly neglected and seldom visited[8].

The West was more the home of vigilantes than superheroes, though several did wear the classic domino mask of the mystery man. The only one active that was known to posses actual powers was the Grey Fox - possibly the RPA Universe analogue to the Vancouver Vixen, as they had similar costumes and territory[9].

One of the most effective lawmen-outside-the-law active in the west at that time was also one of the most mysterious. He kept the peace in Regina according to his own rules with a pair of booming .45's. The newspapers called him the "Dark Angel", though they never adopted it as an according to Hoyle codename, and if the mystery man in question ever used the name himself, there is no record of it. He appears to have operated without any sort of confidant, and kept no case files or log of his own exploits as so many did, and as a result, almost nothing is known about him today... but he was active at least from the summer of '31 through to the start of the war, after which nothing more is known. Some say he joined up, possibly with the The South Saskatchewan Regiment, but there is little evidence to support those claims one way or another[10].

The East Coast had it's share of mysterious operatives and avenging angels, but it the absence of a large urban environment makes it difficult for the classic mystery man to emerge. There were several operatives in Halifax and at least one in Moncton, but few were active for very long and records are spotty at best[11].
