Don't do so if you're someone used to being more than whatever you face.

You might find yourself facing someone who's been feeling the other way.

Certainly, things'll go your way at first; probably, they'll go so to the last.

Maybe, though, they might go something like this.

They might go as painful as this. )

Two men from the FBI told Chicago's then-mayor Richard J. Daley (a real person) to get that and the other cases of supervillainy in his city dealt with before their Director Hoover got the National Guard involved.

So Daley met with Geoffrey Warner, the head of the city's on-strike superhero union C.O.W.L., to tell him that his organization'd get the advantageous contract with the city they were asking for.

Warner, who was working with the mobster Camden Stone and his superpowered thugs to get things to this point, asked for more.

Daley said that that wasn't possible.

" Then you have a real problem. "

" You can't- "

" Of course I can. I have the power here, Richard. Not you. And every hour you stall puts Alderman Hayes at further risk.

" Tick tock, Mr. Mayor. The alderman's life.. "

..he said, as he walked away.. )

His powers're to control, amplify, and redirect the noise around him.

He calls himself Doppler, because he thinks that effect's " close enough " to what he does.

He's been a key part of C.O.W.L.'s last few issues; his introduction opened last December's #7 nicely.

There, he'd walked into a convenience store, picked up some newspapers, and turned to walk out.

He was stopped by the man behind the counter, who told him that he needed to pay for those.

He said he wouldn't, and told the man's wife to mind her business when she tried to interject.

The man, provoked, pulled out a gun to hold him there.

" You're going to call the police? "

" Yes, I am. "

" Okay then. "

..he said, like a man taking his cue. )

There's a bit in the third issue of Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel's C.O.W.L. that's good for both that and the character progression of the superpowered person in question.

That person, Kathryn " Radia " Mitchell of the titular Chicago Organized Worker's League's Tactical Division, was at the beginning of her arc when she first appeared in the issue.

Several pages later, she was at a photoshoot.

A photoshoot framing her in the way everyone and everything else did. )

At SDCC this year, Marvel announced the release of a five-issue series of one-shots - 40 pages of "all-new material/no reprints" (according to the solicits) at $3.99 - focusing on what "some of the most popular Avengers think about what it takes to be a member of the legendary team" (from the marvel.com article linked at the bottom of this).

They are:
- Ant-Man & the Wasp, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with interior art by Stéphanie Hans (out Nov. 2 - tomorrow!)
- Vision, written by Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel with interior art by Stephane Perger (Nov. 9)
- Luke Cage, written by Adam Glass and Mike Benson with interior art by Dalibor Talajic (Nov. 16)
- Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver, written by Sean McKeever with interior art by Mirco Pierfederici (Nov. 23)
- Thor, written by Kathryn Immonen with interior art by Al Barrionuevo (Nov. 30)

Covers, solicits, and all sorts of previews (only from the first four, sorry) ahoy! )

More info is available from a marvel.com article in which each writer/writing team explains briefly what their goals are for their issue and a Newsarama interview with all writers except Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
