Let's have the cover and four pages from Xombi #1 (May 2011). Xombi, created by Dwayne McDuffie, was one of the second wave of Milestone Comics titles, opening up the line from the fairly traditional superhero stories it had started with. In specific, it was Milestone's equivalent of a Vertigo title, full of weirdness. David Kim, Korean-American scientist, has a hideous lab accident with nanotechnology that turns him immortal and kills his assistant. It also makes him a magnet for all sorts of supernatural and paranormal phenomena. Honestly, a lot of the menaces Xombi dealt with seem to have been gleaned from conversations with Grant Morrison circa Doom Patrol.

With the recent acquisition of Milestone's characters by DC, this is the concept that managed to get an ongoing first.
