I recently read an old interview with Paul Cornell where he said Mark Millar is responsible for his current comic book career. Millar called him up after watching an episode of DOCTOR WHO he wrote, "Human Nature," offering to connect him with Marvel editors. Before that, he'd been trying to get into the industry but not really getting anywhere.

So if Millar weren't a big name, none of Cornell's work for Marvel and DC would exist. That's funny.

Amidst dealing with various disasters and crimes, "Superior" handles a bully who beat up his best friend.

The cropping in the bully section makes this difficult to understand

The thing is, I kinda love this book. A lot. Which is why as we near the ending, I get more and more scared. When will the rape and despair start? And with who?

Correction: It was Fathers Day that Millar saw, not Human Nature, which wasn't actually broadcast until several months after Cornell's first work for Marvel hit the stands.

Bwahhahahah demonic space monkey. I'm sorry. That's....that's hilarious.
So it looks like he's setting up Superior for a battle royal with a super villain for the lulz. I can get behind that.

Ah, so it's not the plot bunny for Mr.Millar, but evil plot monkey, to screw up the regular characters & their daily life? Figures.

There is actually a track record for this sort of thing working out - several 'edgy' writers who otherwise loathe superheroes with a passion have admitted to at least having an appreciation for what Superman stands for, and have written him accordingly. If Millar follows through on this attitude regarding a character who's basically a Superman/Captain Marvel archetype, we may actually be able to get to the end of the story without anything horrible happening.
Interesting that the evil space monkey is playing both sides against the middle. It's not often the same guy who gives both the hero and the villain their powers - although I suppose this could be a commentary on the wizard Shazam and Black Adam.

Recruiting Hell’s pivotal part
Space Monkey want you
