Project Superpowers: Hero Killers by Ryan Browne and Pete Woods in May
Since 2007, Dynamite Entertainment has been the home to many of the Golden Age of Comics’ greatest heroes — characters like Black Terror, the Green Lama, the Death-Defying Devil, Masquerade, The Owl, and dozens more — in the pages of Project Superpowers. Industry legends like Alex Ross, Jim Krueger, and Warren Ellis were among the many exceptional talents to reimagine these heroes for a modern audience, frequently in epic storylines with intense interpersonal intrigue and world-spanning stakes. Now, Dynamite welcomes aboard the incredible team of Ryan Browne and Pete Wood, two creators who dare to deliver an altogether unexpected, satirical take on the classic superhero mythos with Project Superpowers: Hero Killers.
Welcome to Libertyville, USA… home to too damn many superheroes! When all crime is soon eradicated, a handful of heroes leave for greener pastures, but most stay for the affordable housing, hoping to rise to the top and become the legendary hero who saved the world’s greatest metropolis. Captain Battle Jr., Sparky, and an unfortunate crime-fighter named Tim try to stand out, but it’s hard to do in a city full of capes stopping every misdemeanor with a spandex-wrapped flourish. Things get weird when these three lad companions try to get to the criminals before their bosses do!
Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #1 is slated for release in May.
