"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.

'Takio' was an all-ages graphic novel that Brian Michael Bendis wrote in 2011. It's about two sisters in an adoptive family that become superheroes. With a new ongoing series based on it that just started, I figured I'd post the beginning of the original as opposed to picking and choosing throughout the entire story. So hopefully if you like it you'll check out the full thing.

The comic's backmatter gives the genesis of this cover:

"Here's a little extra treat for all of you Nemphomaniacs. Just to prove his renaissance man-ishness, Mark decided to put the keyboard away and pick up a pencil and draw the variant cover for this issue."
