Pride Profile: Masquerade


:00_dc_pride:Pride Profile: Masquerade. Milestone was built to knock down barriers, and they knocked it down in a big way Blood Syndicate member Masquerade. Created by the powerhouse team of Dwayne McDuffie, Ivan Velez, Jr., and Trevor von Eeden, Masquerade debuts in Blood Syndicate #1 in 1993. Masquerade is a powerhouse himself with the ability to morph into any living or non-living thing he wants. When fellow Syndicate member Fade discovers Masquerade unconscious after a battle, he finds Masq in his original physical form revealing that he is transgender. There’s no allegories or hidden meanings at play when Masquerade defends his right to be himself.
