The Alternates, and the New Alternates, is the team of heroes living in Rose City. The current members of the New Alternates are Zetaman, Totally Naked Man, Extremely Conservative Woman, and Antiman.

Creation and Concept

The Alternates is based on a team of real-life superheroes lead by Zetaman, A.K.A. Illya King. The Alternates were featured in the YouTube series, The Real Adventures of Zetaman [1].

The Alternates began as a message board collective in 2006. In August of 2007, both the message board shut down while the actual team disbanded and became localized in Portland, Oregon. In November 2007, the Alternates Message Board was recreated to facilitate communication both for RLSH and other community activists.

In February of 2008, the Alternates started a BlogTalk Radio Show, led by then-husband-and-wife team Zetaman and Apocalypse Meow, to help develop a subculture as well as entertain. The Alternates continued throughout 2008 and 2009, but disbanded again in August of 2009 due to internal conflicts.

In January 2010 the Alternates reformed under the banner of Superheroes Anonymous, a nationwide organization of Real Life Superheroes. For various reasons, Zetaman removed himself from RLSH activities and the group on May 17, 2011.
