 My apologies as I do not mean to pile on  sad news. But a DeviantArt I was an acquaintance with whom did Eva woman Superwoman  from time to time Orionpax09 has passed away according to the people he worked with on a game called Time Tenshi. I don’t know if anyone else knows him but I figured this would be a nice place to talk about them if anyone did know him. I hope otherwise everyone is doing well.

I am one of the crazy SOBs who started that "Coreline" settign that he has some stories posted for in the DeviantArt page. Much better author than I, that is for sure.

I'm also one of the crazy SOBs that have been part of the "Superwomen of Eva" setting since day one. Betaed some stories, mostly the DC sub-verse, and gotten art for it.

The whole Coreline setting went to hell in a handbasket because crap that was written very early on, pure child's stuff, was taken as ammo for filibusters that painted some beloved characters in a very bad light and, well, being honest the whole mess gave me PTSD. I really, really hoped that he would eventually finish the stories he had left unfinished so we could bury the hatchet.

Didn't wanted to touch that thing with a eleven-foot pole because of said PTSD.

...it'll never happen now. Burying the hatchet. There's just no words for the shock I am feeling right now.

...guys, I really think we should not leave his Eva fics unfinished. It's like... well... finding out that Jack London did not finished a novel. It's just not right.

Other two DA members, mercblue22 and Nescaro as well al me convinced him to join us for play City Of Heroes some time ago and so he came and do it until one day that told mercblue22 that was feeling some pain on his legs and was last thing we knew since then.

And that was surely months and months ago and since then he didn't came back we all 3 got the feeling that something was wrong but since no official word of what happened couldn't say anything.

Now that's official (not sure of when happened exactly but if is from when his last message to mercblue22 a long time has passed) just add my condolences to family and relatives of him. Sure will be missed from all ones that know him the one who's writing this and other COH 2 partners as well...

Wow, I am just in SHOCK and HEARTBROKEN with this terrible news from my friend Albais that my good friend, OrionPax, has passed away. -_- I knew something bad happened to OP last June, but I was holding out on hope that he just lost interest with online and moved to something else. (Thank you tsuper for letting us know what happened to OP, even if the news is grim...)

We chatted regularly on discord and I convinced OP to play with me and my friends Albais and Nescaro the classic superhero MMO, City of Heroes early in 2021. He tried it and he was hooked as much as we all were in COH, it was something that really appealed to him guys. But, for me, OrionPax will be known for his fantastic craftsmanship in the many superheroine/supervillainess costumes that he created and provided for all of us to enjoy in DAZStudio/Poser/etc. As a 3d artist, I used his costumed time and time again as he created some of the finest costumes out there. From Wonder Woman to Rampage, Sensational She-Hulk to She-Ra, to Mighty Isis, to JEM's earrings, to Giganta, Livewire, Stunner, to Cheetara to Cutey Honey and many, many more. I know OP had his hand in many things, from Time Tenshi to his incredible 3d arts that he made at DA using his costumes, to even creating his fantastic She-Ra fic, which stayed true to the 80s She-Ra cartoon.

Orion Pax was one of a kind guys, someone that you could go to, to discuss superheroines in comics as well during times of trouble and he would do his best to give you the best advice possible. And it breaks my heart to know that throughout all of this, that I couldn't do anything to help him when he needed help the most. (as he helped me many times before) As Albais said, the final chat that I had with OP was on discord last June, and he was not feeling well. I knew that something was wrong guys, as OP mentioned to me that he has health issues and some days really took a lot out of him.

I just looked on my Discord and on June 27th of last year, he mentioned to me that his was feeling sick that night, and even apologized for it. I told him that we would chat later so he could get some sleep, hoping that he had maybe a slight flu or something. I never realized that would be the last time I would ever hear from OP. Days turned to weeks, weeks into months and no word on OP. I tried messing him a few times on Discord to see if he was okay, checking up on him, but, no response. I tried not to think the worse, hoping that OP as okay and stepped away from online to work on his game/other projects. But something in the corner of my mind kept thinking that something happened to OP. And today, it was verified by tsuper that my fears were confirmed, damn.

He was really heartbroken about losing his mom too as he cared for her but the Michigan health care system failed them as she was not able to receive proper care after she was in a car wreck a few years ago. (someone hit her) OP did his best to care for his mom on his own, but her passing really took the heart out of him guys, deep down, and I felt it when he would talk about his mom and how much he missed her. -_-

This fantastic forum was formed so people from all walks of life could come and enjoy superheroines, whether it be transformations, feats of strength of admire their beauty. But during times like this, it really hits home guys when we lose one of our own and it takes confirmation of a close friend or confidant to let us know of that person's passing. Orion Pax was someone that I have great admiration and respect for, and always have since I met him years ago. I know that he would want us to keep enjoying the great superheroines/supervillainesses here as well as his costumes/stories that he made of them. Rest in Peace OrionPax, your legacy will live on in the costumes that I use in my comics, which I will dedicate to you, my friend. May you be reunited with your mom in heaven buddy, enjoy your time together. Thank you for everything that you have done for me, my good friend, you will never be forgotten...

I was another acquaintance of his. I can't believe it. I knew he was going through rough times but I really hoped he'd pull through.

Yes, so did I Jimbob. I feel awful with the news of OrionPax09's passing. He was such a great person, and content creator, I hope that those of us who use OP's costumes in our 3d comics honor him so that he receives the recognition and admiration that that he truly deserves.

Oh wow,
I always thought that OP's name was 'Roger Smith.' We did business a few times where he created for me and a friend the Black Scorpion, the Heroine. And his Paypal setup and all of his e-mails to me were from 'Roger Smith.' I guess since Anthony was listed at his Instagram page, then that was OP's real name. I am not 100% sure though guys...

I was thinking about something here, and I believe that I’ve been watching superwomen content in the last 20 years and maybe a little bit more.

This kind of news makes us remember that despite our “secret identities” in these forums or websites always will be a person with dreams, sufferings and a life to live, and all that we can do is wish to everyone to track this way as nice as possible.

I’m not the kind of person which expresses so much here specially because of the language but I would like to share this feeling

So... is he Smith or Lombardini? Because trying to find obituaries for either in the state of Michigan is really being a problem.

...don't even know the exact day he passed. I mean, his bosses gave the news, but they only said he died, not the date...

...this is just great (said with extreme sarcasm). I had a really crappy last pair of years regarding being friends with him, but he was friends all the same. Now I can't even attach a proper date to when I should be mourining him.
