Well, not really, but his latest project for Boom! Studios features a good guy turning bad in Irredeemable.Â Essentially Waid is asking the question, “What if the world’s greatest hero decided to become the world’s greatest villain?”Â Waid is answering the question in the new monthly ongoing series.
“In superhero comics, pretty much everyone who’s called upon to put on a cape is, at heart, emotionally equipped for the job.Â I reject that premise,” said series writer and BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid.Â “IRREDEEMABLE is, in a way, my third and most complex chapter on the cost of superheroics – a pulp adventure tale of horror exploring how the lessons we learn about right and wrong as children can become warped and twisted when challenged by the realities of the adult world. ”
The first issue will feature variant covers by John Cassaday and Barry Kitson and will arrive in stores in April.
