From the pages of Project Superpowers, Dynamite Entertainment is bringing us Hero Killers in May.
Project Superpowers started out as a Jim Krueger/Alex Ross project to revive the Golden Age public domain heroes like Black Terror, the Green Lama, the Death-Defying Devil, and more. Now it looks like there are too many superheroes running around, and the Hero Killers are going to do something about it.
Welcome to Libertyville, USA… home to too damn many superheroes! When all crime is soon eradicated, a handful of heroes leave for greener pastures, but most stay for the affordable housing, hoping to rise to the top and become the legendary hero who saved the world’s greatest metropolis. Captain Battle Jr., Sparky, and an unfortunate crime-fighter named Tim try to stand out, but it’s hard to do in a city full of capes stopping every misdemeanor with a spandex-wrapped flourish. Things get weird when these three lad companions try to get to the criminals before their bosses do!
Ryan Browne and Pete Wood are teaming to bring the series to Dynamite.
“We’re taking characters and concepts that have been around since the beginning of comics and turning them upside down,” said Pete Woods. “This is going to be a fun ride for the readers and the creators alike. I’m having a blast.”
