The Worse Things wiki last edited by wmwadeii on 06/09/13 09:46AM View full history

Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including cult faves like members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die...only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant. Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive? The rising star team of Dennis Hopeless (X-MEN: SEASON ONE) and Kev Walker (THUNDERBOLTS) dare you to tune in to your new favorite comic NOW!

Note: The original cover is a homage to the movie poster of Battle Royale.

A Book That's Taking Risks 0

Anyone who thinks this represents everything wrong with comics either hasn't read enough comics or has their views shaped by the internet personality Linkara, who is a vocal opponent of character death. This book is taking risks and I for one intend to reward those risks if they pay off. The setup was incredible, Arcade grabs 16 random teenage superheroes and basically says, "Kill or be killed kids" There's a lot of potential in this. Dennis Hopeless being a former writer for the 90's X-Men Anim...
