In light of discussions concerning superhero comics mixing with politics, here's a comic that's about a former superhero who becomes mayor of New York. It debuted in 2004 and ran for fifty regular issues plus four 'specials'. These comics were published around the same time as Vaughan's 'Runaways' (more or less) which should give you an idea of his versatility as a writer.

We get a flashback to his origin in which a glowing green object in the water blows up in Hundred's face.

I really liked this series.... up until the last volume. 9 out of 10 were good, though!

Brian K.Vaughn never does endings well.

Both the personal side *and* the reveal of the plot menace disappointed me.

Agh, don't want to rag on it too much, it *was* mostly great til then. I just wish I'd stopped and stuck with my headcanons ^^

THE. STARS. ARE DOWN.

I've read The First Hundred Days about 8 times.

Each time, I've noticed something new.

IT's an astonishing series. Tag is chilling, Trouble is exhilirating, and I can't remember enough about the rest of it.

I should read it again.

What's the deal with the "Tidy Bowl killer"? It gets brought up in several headlines, like its going to be important later, but then it never comes up again IIRC.

Also, there seems a pretty significant plot hole in that Kremlin is able to bug Mitch by reverse engineering the failsafe he gave him, but we later learn the failsafes were fake.

(Is there an easier way to hide spoilers? The blacking out is such a hassle to type in the code for...)

The Tidy Bowl Killer is a chance to make a few jokes about pooping.

I think it appeared three times, and I cheered for the follow ups.
