This month marks the return of Rob Liefeld's Extreme Studios. Five of his old creations are being relaunched in new ongoing series: Supreme, Glory, Youngblood, Prophet, and Bloodstrike. This week, the first of those series debuted -- Prophet, by Brandon Graham and Simon Roy.

In the distant future, John Prophet emerges from cryogenic sleep, his mind clouded by amnesia...

The original was Liefeld's Captain America ripoff. He was a kid in Germany who agreed to be the test subject to a mad scientist's superhuman genetic experiment, who's then put in cryogenic sleep when WW2 broke out. Youngblood woke him up in modern day.

He looked like this, and Jack Kirby is his sidekick:

And in-between the original and current, there was Alan Moore's reinvention of the character as a Doc Savage homage. He was even called "the man of marble." Moore never got around to doing much with it, behind a few cameos in JUDGMENT DAY. Liefeld claims TOM STRONG was nothing but a combination of elements from SUPREME and Moore's PROPHET proposal, but Liefeld's Liefeld, so take that with a grain of salt.
