Boom! Studios has announced a brand new ongoing series written by Mark Waid.  What is sure to turn more than a few heads is the title – Incorruptible, which is strikingly close to Waid’s current series Irredeemable.  What makes this an even more interesting story is how it ties into the Irredeemable series.

INCORRUPTIBLE asks the question: What Happens When A Villain Becomes A Hero? Written by Mark Waid and sporting sensational interior art by hot newcomer Neil Edwards (SQUADRON SUPREME) INCORRUPTIBLE features covers by John Cassaday (ASTONISHING X-MEN) and Tim Sale (BATMAN: LONG HALLOWEEN).

INCORRUPTIBLE showcases super villain Max Damage, who had an epiphany the day The Plutonian destroyed Sky City. That day, when The Plutonian turned his back on humanity, Max Damage decided to step up. Now Max Damage has changed his name to Max Daring and turned from his formerly selfish ways to become… INCORRUPTIBLE. The flip side to this year’s break-out smash hit IRREDEEMABLE, examining the hard, difficult road to changing your ways and making a difference in the world…

“While you don’t need to be reading IRREDEEMABLE to enjoy this new series, INCORRUPTIBLE continues that complex study of caped morality at the end of the world,” says Managing Editor, Matt Gagnon in a prepared statement. “Readers will be shown a shockingly different perspective of The Plutionian’s world, where a super-villain, pushed by an insurmountable force, dares to be INCORRUPTIBLE. ”

You’ll have to wait until December to pick up the first issue, but hopefully Major Spoilers will have more images to show before it hits the store shelves.

    Interesting. I had been tinkering around with a story about the world’s greatest villain who is trying to redeem himself for his former crimes and how that effort affects both him and those who previously lived under his tyranny. I’ve been occasionally writing on it for 5 years.

    … Guess I should have put more effort into it. Too late now. heh

    So, of course, I think Waid’s idea sounds spectacular. The only thing I don’t like is the main character’s name. Kinda cheesy.
