Windsor’s hometown superhero, The Incredible Conduit, is taking his fight against crime to Chrysler’s minivan plant. The Conduit (aka Raymond Cole) is the creation of Tony Gray, a Windsor-based comic artist and writer who created the character that runs in the Windsor Star newspaper.
Gray says the latest storyline revolves around a bad guy who plans to use high-tech robots to create problems at the Chrysler Windsor Assembly Plant. The players will include some actual Chrysler employees in major roles. Gray worked with Mary Gauthier at Chrysler Group to get approvals to use the plant, corporate logos and employee likenesses for The Conduit’s latest adventure.
Inspiration for the story came from correspondence between Gray and workers at the Chrysler facility who suggested that, since it is Windsor’s largest employer, the plant would be an excellent site for a new series.
