A World Without SuperHeroes, was created, meaning written and drawn, between 1992 - 1995. Artist and writer Ray Felix founded Cup ‘O’ Java Studio in 1995. The company began as a comic artist group in the halls of the School of Visual Arts. Among Ray Felix were a number of talented artists who got together to create a fanzine called "Cup 'O' Java", under the studio, Nimm Rodd Press. "Cup 'O' Java", was primarily composed of comics, poetry and literature. As with most young companies, a lot of the ideas shifted as their mission was in constant development and with that the creative talent grew and changed over time. The actual "Cup 'O' Java", fanzine never saw the light of day, because of lack of funding and investment from its partners. Ray Felix took the name of the original Fanzine, "Cup 'O' Java", and then named the company after it. Felix had taken time to create and began working with new artists from the Bronx in New York City.
In 1998-99 Cup O Java Studio, had come to employ new artist's like Marcus Jones and Danny Soler for a number of different projects. "Vanishing Point" and "A World Without SuperHeroes" were the first two projects to become developed by the company, but its first publication to see the light of day was a magazine comic titled, "God: The Second Coming", which was developed by Ray Felix and had many components of the original fanzine, from Nimm Rodd Press, which was first developed during the companies incarnation at The School of Visual Arts. The Fanzine was primarily the artwork of Ray Felix, but had a variety of inkers and featured letterer James Winston at the helm.
In 2000, Ray Felix, published "A World Without SuperHeroes", in its own Fanzine. Soon after, the production of comic title "A World Without Superheroes" had come to a halt when creative team Danny Soler and Marcus Sam Jones had quit the project. They had felt that the title was too racy for their creative taste and did not agree with the adult content, which was evolving in the later scripts. The two artists had also wanted to develop their new creative idea "At Random", which was a manga styled adventure that dealt with contemporary themes not related to the superhero genre. Artist, Ray Felix had taken over the creative duties for the title utilizing the layouts, which Marcus Jones had completed for future issues and began to complete the comic series. Future issues of the title "A World Without Superheroes" was temporarily shelved, despite its completion as Artists Ray Felix and Louis Gonzalez, began scouting for new talent to expand the company and its creative works. In 2002, Cup 'O' Java Studio made its first public debut at the Baltimore Comic Con and began traveling from different comic conventions, where their publications would be sold. Later titles would be introduced to the comic world, such as "NO-1 Anthology" which featured characters LSD and X-Tasy: The Villain Assassins, G.E.T.T, by Luis Gonzalez, "Excuse me, I farted" by Colby Hausmann, and "Jester's Tale" by artist Zero and writer Daniel Scott.
Under the advisement and tenure of Louis Gonzalez, Cup O Java Studio had under gone a massive overhaul in its development of characters and properties. Louis Gonzalez had brought in freelance artists on a work for hire basis to illustrate Ray Felix's new comic properties. Artist Christopher Duckett, Kasim Earl and Eugene worked on " "The Super Hero Killers". During this time, Cup 'O' Java Studio temporarily moved away from the superhero genre as artist Ray Felix introduced Mistress Morgan to the company as they developed an Adult comic Magazine, "O.D's Helpful Hints. Mistress Morgan, being a professional dominatrix and Ray's one time classmate at the School of Visual Arts, she had become a consultant with the company on the O.D title.
With the success of its title "O.D's Helpful hints" the company began to alter its course towards adult entertainment briefly with co-concept specialist Mistress Morgan. Mistress Morgan and Ray Felix began to explore comedy themes from 2004 to 2006 and then as the sales diminished for the O.D title, due to the economy and ever changing comic market, Ray Felix altered the company’s course yet again towards the children market as Cup 'O' Java Studio joined forces with Gary Camp and Ed Mouzon, founders of Creative One Comics. With a new team of Artists and writers both creative companies created the title "Bronx Heroes", where Ray Felix created the comic book later known as "Run Away Slave" as a mini feature.
Simultaneously, the final rendition of "A World Without Superheroes had come to light and was released as a quarterly publication in 2006. Currently in 2010, " A World without Superheroes has published its first annual issue and has issue 5 of 13 in production. Despite the economy, the nation at war and the ever-changing comic market gearing towards the film industry, Cup ' O' Java Studio, has managed to survive and continue to make an impression in the comics market.
