"Nemesis is the world’s smartest man, and the bad news for us is that he’s the world’s only super-villain. That means he’s got freeze guns and jump-jets and all these James Bond gadgets and he’s using them against us. To entertain himself, he picks a different cop every year and makes his life a misery. The book opens with him fucking over Japan’s top cop, and then our story, the mini-series, takes place as he shifts his attention to Washington and his first American attacks."

"What if this genius billionaire was just this total shit, and the only thing that stood between him and a city was the cops? It’s Batman versus Commissioner Gordon, in a weird way. Or maybe a super-villain version of Se7en. A billionaire anarchist up against ordinary people. The Joker’s the best thing in the Batman movies, so this guy is a bit of an amalgamation of all the stuff we like."

"I think gay characters in particular can be quite stereotypical in comic books, they can be quite set. I remember the first gay character I saw was in a book called Global Champions, and he had giant hoop earrings , I remember thinking, even as a kid, this is outrageous. I just thought 'why not have a gay character who's the ultimate bad-ass.' I wanted somebody who was just cool and I liked the idea of a superhero who was being blackmailed, I thought it was quite cool to have a good guy who was being forced by the bad guys into helping them because he had a secret, but it had to pay off at the end, I didn't want him to be this negative character, I wanted him to be quite positive."

""The idea behind Superior is very simple,” he offers. “People always said that Batman was an easier character to relate to than Superman, because he was human, because he could be hurt and because Superman is too perfect. That’s always been the big complaint about Superman. I never found that to be a problem, because I always loved Superman growing up. But people said, ‘I can’t relate to him; he’s flawless; I never worry about him because you know he’s going to be okay.’ So what I did, essentially, was Marvelize the character with Superior, because Marvel characters are much easier to relate to than DC characters, just because they seem more like real people." - Mark Millar

With the ongoing release of Huck and Jupiter's Circle and the upcoming sequel to Chrononauts, let's take a moment to turn back the clock to 2010 for Mark Millar. It was the year that the first issue of Superior was dropped. Superior is easily my favorite comic by Millar and being that's it's almost about a half a decade old, let's take a moment to look at it.
