Empowered GN (2007-2019 Dark Horse) comic books 2007
Volume 1 - 1st printing.
Story and art by Adam Warren.
Not only is costumed crimefighter 'Empowered' saddled with a less-than-ideal superhero name, but she wears a skintight and cruelly revealing 'supersuit' that only magnifies her body-image insecurities. Worse yet, the suit's unreliable powers are prone to failure, repeatedly leaving her in appallingly distressing situations...and giving her a shameful reputation as the lamest 'cape' in the masks-and-tights business. Nonetheless, she pluckily braves the ordeals of her bottom-rung superheroic life with the help of her 'thugalicious' boyfriend (and former Witless Minion) and her hard-drinking ninja girlfriend, not to mention the supervillainous advice from the caged alien demonlord watching DVDs from atop her coffee table.
From Adam Warren-writer/artist of The Dirty Pair comics (the original 'Original English-Language Manga' before OEL was cool), and writer of Livewires, Gen13, and Iron Man: Hypervelocity-comes Empowered, a butt-kicking, bootylicious superhero lampoon that raises the bar for long-john lust and low-brow laughs. Remove all previous notions of superhero entertainment from your puny mind...and prepare to be Empowered!
