For Free Comic Book Day, Boom! Studios has released a prologue to Abnett and Lanning (and main artist Brad Walker)'s upcoming series The Hypernaturals.

"It is the far future; the human race has finally colonized the galaxy, preserving an era of prosperity that's only possible because of The Hypernaturals. They're a celebrated, galaxy-wide superhero task force that keeps the peace. That is, until they all mysteriously vanish. Now, as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it's up to a group of retired and long forgotten Hypernaturals - and their novice recruits - to save the galaxy from complete destruction."

Ok, this looks mostly cool, but I'd hope for more diversity in the cast of the future.

Wow can anyone say Legion of Superheroes rip off? Not that I'm not intrigued...

Well, at least it's a change of pace from the endless Superman pastiches we've had the past few years.

To be fair, Abnett and Lanning wrote something like 50 issues of Legion of Superheroes, and it was quite good. I'd say they're allowed to do a bit of ripping off.

Oh I actually have no problem with it at all. I adore the Legion.

You should read Legion Lost (the first one). It was pretty much DnA's start writing the Legion, and it's a great little sci-fi epic.

This could be a great opportunity for those who like the idea of LoSH, but who also complain that its history is too confusing to jump into. ;)

So in the future they don't have Caller ID? Typical.

In fairness, since she wasn't aware of the tragedy, she'd have no reason NOT to talk to someone from the media.

Better yet, perhaps in the future the capacity to make harassing phone calls (and cold callers) have been bred out of transhuman nature.

She was only made aware it was someone from the media √°fter she accepted the call, not blaming her at all as it could have been a friend/relative, but I do blame the tech being so backward.

I'm never really comfortable once they start talking about "galaxy wide", since the distances involved in that are brain numbing* that any individual group of people ebing alive long enough to be known seems improbable,

* The Milky Way being about 100,000 LIGHT YEARS in diameter. (Or so Monty Python tells me)

It depends on communications speed- assuming essentially instant communication speed, it's just a matter of one group acting on a large enough scale that the entire galaxy* (taken here to mean all members of whatever galactic community there is, which may or may not wind up excluding a number of preinterstellar races, depending on said galactic community's ) hears about it.

Poul Indersun? Really?

(For reference, Poul AndersOn was a well known science fiction author)

I'll be honest, this preview doesn't really grab me. I'm still going to get this, though. Abnett and Lanning doing superheroes in space is a reliable formula for entertainment.
