Empowered Vol. #1 Tpb
Not only is costumed crime fighter "Empowered" saddled with a less-than-ideal superhero name, but she wears a skintight and cruelly revealing "super suit" 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 super heroic life with the help of her "thugalicious" boyfriend (and former Witless Minion) and her hard-drinking ninja girlfriend, not to mention the super villainous advice from the caged alien demon lord watching DVDs from atop her coffee table . . .
From Adam Warren-writer/artist of the English-language Dirty Pair comics (the original "Original English-Language Manga" before OEL was cool), and writer of Live wires, Gen13, and Iron Man: Hyper velocity-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!
