Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5 is the last issue of this beautifully snarky mini-series from Dynamite. There’s a little bit of everything here. Ray guns, retaliation, retribution, resurrection, re-killing, redemption, and a bunch of weird creatures.

Actually, that’s all I’m going to give you. If you weren’t already convinced by my last four issues worth of reviews, giving you more details won’t change your mind now. In fact, you don’t even get another random clickbait link, so there. Ryan Browne and Pete Woods have kept me entertained for the last five months, I have no doubt they will do the same for you.

Last month I threatened to give this issue only a single star just for ending, but honestly I can’t give it less than the 4 out of 5 stars that it has been sitting at ...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #4

Welcome back to this sweet, sweet garbage (no really, the story opens in a dump). When we last left our heroes(?) sidekicks(?) villains(?) Sparky had inadvertently killed his mentor Big Blue, and is now an infantile jibbering idiot; an insane Tim is wearing an oven mitt duct taped to his face, a la Phantom of the Opera, to hide the rainbow scar left from his confrontation with Rainbow Boy; and Captain Battle Jr. has just arrived and doesn’t know what to think about all this.

Meanwhile, in the Libertyville General Hospital, the Mayor sits at the side of Rainbow Boy, who managed to survive Tim’s attack. This touching scene is then interrupted by the Mayor’s soon-to-be ex-wife, who confronts him about his Mayor being confronted about his affair.

Back in the junkyard, Captain Battle (Sr...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #3

So, let’s do a quick recap: thus far Dr. Baron von Science, Black Terror, and Blue Bolt have all been killed by Tim using a ray gun stolen from found in Dr. Baron von Science’s secret lab. Here’s the thing, though – they weren’t. The ray gun didn’t disintegrate them, it transported them to the very strange Dimension 42. How strange you ask? Black Terror has only been there a week, and he has “vomited in horror fifteen times”.

We begin issue #3 with a continuation of the snark between the “Narrator” and the “Editor.” As far as the actual story in concerned, we find Rainbow Boy in a darkened kitchen, wearing nothing but his rainbow helmet, rainbow briefs, and the key to the city, where he is confronted by Tim over that key...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #2

So at the end of the last issue, Sparky, Captain Battle Jr., and Tim witnessed the evil Dr. Baron von Physics murder Black Terror. They then disarmed Dr. Barron and were forced to shoot him with his own disintegration ray. The ray gun then disappeared, possibly stolen by a corrupt cop. That’s what happened. That’s what the boys told everyone, and they are sticking to that story. Big Blue doesn’t believe it, though, and WHAT REALLY HAPPENED WILL SHOCK YOU! Whatever it was, it all worked out in the end. The boys got the key to the city, and Captain Battle Jr. got a chocolate malt.

Not long after, the key is then given to Rainbow Boy (this hero of the moment thing seems to be a regular occurrence in Libertyville, USA)...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #1

Welcome thrill-seekers, to Libertyville, USA. If you are unfamiliar with Dynamite Entertainment’s Project Superpowers series, and its subsequent spin-offs, that ok. A good spinoff doesn’t rely on it’s source material too much. You don’t need to watch Cheers to enjoy Fraser. Smooth Willie Williams Jr., Mayor of Libertyville, catches you up on the important details in a short “expository seminar” which basically comes down to the fact that Libertyville has “too many $&@#(! Heroes”

When the full blown heroes are busy trying to get a piece of the spotlight, what hope does a sidekick have? That’s basically the story we have when Captain Battle Jr., Sparky, and Tim (you’ve heard of, Tim, haven’t you?) are the first on the scene when Dr...
