With all these stories of superheroes being the shining beacon of light in the dark, and fighting for truth, justice, and the American way, it's about time for some alternate takes on the common superhero theme. Luckily, in the last couple years, there have been some very good comics about what happens when those with great power kick great responsibility to the curb.
A God Somewhere, an original graphic novel written by John Arcudi, with art by Peter Snejbjerg tells the story of what happens when a man is imbued with incredible powers, and just loses his marbles. It's a cynical view to be sure, but one that's not unbelievable an example of what might happen if someone who's not in the best mental place ended up super strong with the ability to fly.
The Mighty, a 12 issue mini-series, focuses on Alpha One, the greatest hero the world knows, and the organization that has sprung up behind him, and how he always shows up outside your window when you don't expect it. Plus a ton of other creepy stuff guys with broad shoulders and the ability to fly might do with enough rope. The story, by Peter J. Tomasi and Keith Champagne, is complimented by wonderful, moody artwork by Peter Snejbjerg (also), and Chris Samnee.
Irredeemable sprung from the mind of superstar writer, Mark Waid and BOOM! Studios, and the ongoing series explores the question, "What if Superman was dangerously unhinged, and just wrecked the bejeezus out of the world?" Peter Krause provides art for the story of the Plutonian, and the world he wrecked in a fit of psychotic, superpowered rage. Why no one took a hint that the guy had his HQ in a volcano as a bad sign, we'll never know.
