Last, but certainly far from least, in our series about the Calvert MD superhero team the Justice Federation, we bring you a profile of everyone’s favorite queen of magic (and pop culture): Ruby!!!

Ruby Romanov is a direct descendant of Romanian gypsies. Trained by her family in the uses of magic from a very early age, Ruby was an experienced sorceress by the time she’d reached her mid-teen years. When the discovery of a buried relic of great antiquity unleashed one of the Elder Gods upon the earth, the Justice Federation found themselves within a hair’s breadth of losing the battle. Suddenly a young woman joined the fight on their side and, using both her knowledge and mystic skills, helped the heroes to drive the Elder God back to the Outer Dark. Realizing that the team lacked a resident magic user, the Justice Federation asked Ruby to join their ranks as a full member.

Ruby is easily the most popular JF member with the general public, due equally to her physical attractiveness and upbeat personality. After joining the team, she became an instant hit on television talk shows. In the year 2000, Ruby posed for a photo in which her gypsy costume was ripped in, to put it euphemistically, several “strategic” places (although it was certainly a revealing photo, it was far more “PG cheesecake” than “obscene”). The photo became the best-selling poster of all time, dwarfing the sales of even the famous “Farrah” poster of the 1970’s; it’s safe to say that more than 80% of all teenage boys (and more than a few of their dads) own a copy. Ruby was initially quite embarrassed by the attention until the first of the royalty checks started rolling in; the sudden windfall has more than made up for any self-consciousness on Ruby’s part.

Ruby has become so popular that she signed with a cable network to produce a reality series about her; the rest of the Justice Federation put a stop to it, (understandably) refusing to allow the cameras access to the interior of Justice Tower to protect the team’s privacy as well as to protect any secrets which may lie within its walls.
