in a world where radioactive spider bites just shrivel up your arm, industrial waste to the face blinds you full-stop, and secret government assassin programs just give you claws...

well, Powerless happens.

Six issues of seeing what happens in a world without anything super, as told through the eyes of psychiatrist William Watts and the odd visions of 616 he's having.

(warning: i'm lazy, so I'm using thumbnails.)

For example, look at some of the people Dr. Watts encounters, like this lady and her workplace problems:

or this guy, and his hard luck life:

or this street sorcerer:

or this guy, at his daily job:

Powerless_01-16.jpg (407 KB)

or even this guy:

Powerless_01-22.jpg (443 KB)

Powerless_01-23.jpg (279 KB)

or this guy, who's got something of a temper:

or this little toy:

and the guy spearheading its development:

(how very movie!Tony.)

and, of course, this nutjob:

Powerless_4_of6_11-2004_07.jpg (396 KB)

but you can't build an entire story on IT'S THAT GUY, BUT DIFFERENT. so things actually have to happen. like Project Iron Man and Oscorp corporate espionage, Eric Magnus's Phoenix Agenda and the killing of Charles Xavier, and the trial of Frank Castle for the murder of Leland Owlsley.

it's a pretty good read, with a few more cameos, and some neat endings. like logan's:

Powerless_06_2005_Team-DCP_pg18.jpg (404 KB)

and the resolution of frank castle's:

Powerless_06_2005_Team-DCP_pg22.jpg (362 KB)

and peter's, which has a hilarious death o'norman:

Powerless_06_2005_Team-DCP_pg14.jpg (457 KB)

so yeah, check it out.

Powerless! I loved Powerless, shame it's not more popular.

You forgot to mention that even with one arm, no powers, and STILL being hounded by Osborn -- Peter Parker is a total badass. I was so happy with how that subplot ended.
