Powerless: Some Constants
in a world where radioactive spider bites just shrivel up your arm, industrial waste to the face blinds you full-stop, and secret government assassin programs just give you claws...
well, Powerless happens.
Six issues of seeing what happens in a world without anything super, as told through the eyes of psychiatrist William Watts and the odd visions of 616 he's having.
(warning: i'm lazy, so I'm using thumbnails.)
For example, look at some of the people Dr. Watts encounters, like this lady and her workplace problems:
or this guy, and his hard luck life:
or this street sorcerer:
or this guy, at his daily job:
or even this guy:
or this guy, who's got something of a temper:
or this little toy:
and the guy spearheading its development:
(how very movie!Tony.)
and, of course, this nutjob:
but you can't build an entire story on IT'S THAT GUY, BUT DIFFERENT. so things actually have to happen. like Project Iron Man and Oscorp corporate espionage, Eric Magnus's Phoenix Agenda and the killing of Charles Xavier, and the trial of Frank Castle for the murder of Leland Owlsley.
it's a pretty good read, with a few more cameos, and some neat endings. like logan's:
and the resolution of frank castle's:
and peter's, which has a hilarious death o'norman:
so yeah, check it out.
