4.0 out of 5 stars Just fantastic, 2 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Irredeemable Volume 1 (Paperback)
If you're looking for a thoughtful, intelligent look at what people with superpowers might really be like then go no further.

Mark Waid says in his foreword that he rejects the premise (taken for granted elsewhere) that anyone who has a superpower is mentally strong enough to deal with the pressure. This series examines what happens when the "Plutonian" (read: "Superman"), the world's greatest and most powerful hero, snaps and becomes the world's greatest villain.

As his former team mates scramble to find a way to stop him they reveal the backstory of their group. Through these flashbacks we see the many small disappointments, conceits and failures that caused this once great man to go overboard. Highly recommended.

"Through these flashbacks we see the many small disappointments, conceits and failures that caused this once great man to go overboard." Exaggeration. There's like one minor and one major moment that are highlighted, pretty far from 'many', definitely doesn't show our The Plutonian's personal tipping point yet. But this is only 4 issues large, you couldn't expect them have thrown their big punch already.
