Orange Werefox I
Alter Ego: Dr. Hugh Fox Senior
Base of Operations: Chicago, Illinois
The first Orange Werefox was a simple crime fighter that worked closely with the Untouchables in fighting the Al Capone crime machine. Frank Capone was the person who took over Cicero for his brother Al Capone. As general practitioner in the Cicero area, Dr. Capone often gave medical treatment to those who had been assaulted by the Capone’s in Cicero. Dr. Fox felt that cleaning up Chicago was a lost cause but that he could make Cicero a mob free zone. The first Orange Werefox used an underworld identity to gather evidence by frequenting the Montmarte, The Ship and the Hawthorne Inn. On October1,1926, Joseph Klenha, along with his sidekick Chief of Police Thoedore Svoboda and 77 others were indicted for violation of the Volstead act using information the first Orange Werefox had gathered and passed on to the authorities. All indicted gang members avoided jail time on appeal. The Orange Werefox quit crime fighting in disgust due to this failure of the system. However, his son Hugh Fox Jr. was forced to endure a brutal regime of one hour of boxing and one hour of free style wrestling at a local boys club on a daily basis in order to be ready to be the second Orange Werefox.
Orange Werefox II
Alter Ego: Dr. Hugh Fox Junior
Base of Operations: Los Angeles, California
The second Orange Werefox developed an aversion to physical exercise at an early age due to daily boxing and wrestling lessons and struggled with life-long obesity. The second Orange Werefox did not fight crime unlike his father. Instead Hugh Fox Junior was active in the movement against the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War. The first Orange Werefox viewed himself as a crime fighter and thought this use of his name for political purposes tarnished the image of the Orange Werefox. The first Orange Werefox did have a secret identity that was revealed when his son, the second Orange Werefox, revealed his own identity on national television in 1968. This revelation led to a permanent rupture in the relationship between the first and second Orange Werefox.

The Orange Vixen’s identity remains a mystery to this day but she was an avid supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) which was a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution designed to guarantee equal rights for women. She disappeared after the bill stalled in state legislatures. The Orange Vixen was especially famous for acting as a bodyguard for Gloria Steinem. The full costume was considered a distraction at rallies and instead of the cowl, she wore orange glasses, an obviously fake orange wig and an orange lycra body suit. The toned down outfit still had the effect of concealing her identity. Her cowl was mailed to the third Orange Werefox anonymously. Many believe that the Orange Vixen was the bodybuilder Kay Baxter before she won the second U.S. Women’s National Physique Championship in 1979. There is even a rumor that the Orange Vixen was the Orange Werefox II impersonating a woman after a stint of bodybuilding but this is generally considered an urban legend.

I am the current Orange Werefox and want to share the Orange Werefox story using new media! I am also interested in working with others to create Orange Werefox related intellectual properties such as movies, comic books and/or toys.
