The Bay Coast Guardians is a group of Real Life Superheroes based in St. Petersburg, Florida. The BCG is a former Xtreme Justice League affiliate team.
The Bay Coast Guardians were founded at the beginning of 2017.
In June of 2017, founding members Warden and Mercy met with local RLSH IKon, Jaguar, Good Samaritan, and Impact. The group decided that they would be more effective working together, and the second iteration of the BCG was born. In August of 2018, Orange Wombat joined the BCG. The team has worked with other local heroes, such as Artisteroi, KAPES, and Superhero, when conducting homeless handouts. They regularly volunteer at community events, put on homeless handouts, host fundraisers, and patrol downtown St Petersburg.
During the summer of 2020, the BCG became active participants in the Black Lives Matter marches in St Petersburg, often providing water, supplies, and first aid during the marches, and working with the security team to help keep marchers safe. In the fall of 2020, the BCG expanded its membership by adding in five new members. Miracle, Linchpin, and Skinya were recruited from the BLM events. Doctor Professor and Orchid joined the team during the same time.
The team also has three Junior Guardian members, Outcome, Snack Attack, and Leopard.
The team is a former affiliate of the Xtreme Justice League, having split from the League amicably when the XJL decided to refocus its efforts on San Diego, rather than the nation as a whole.
