Captain Dynamo, the greatest super-hero in the world, was not the most faithful husband. Now he's dead and his family is trying to piece together their lives. As his enemies descend on his unprotected city, Captain Dynamo's widow rounds up his five illegitimate children, each of whom have inherited one of their father's super-powers. Can these total strangers come to terms with their powers, their father's legacy and each other as total chaos erupts? This new ongoing monthly series as Image Comics chronicles a super-hero team like no other - Dynamo 5!

Captain Dynamo is dead. His widow, Maddie Warner, discovers he's been unfaithful over the years, and some of his indiscretions have resulted in children. As Captain Dynamo's enemies descend on the defenseless Tower City, Maddie ronds up these five young adults and exposes them to the same radiation that gave Captain Dynamo his amazing powers, this awakening their own abilities. These five strangers band together as Dynamo 5, and attempt to carry on their father's fight for justice, while coping with their new family ties.

Dynamo 5 is Unique 0

 This comic has got to be the greatest comic I have ever read in years. It's like Batman Beyond (the mentoring part towards the next generation) meets Fantastic Four and Teen Titans (they're all blood related yet they are all different).  It starts out with action-pack fight against VEIL, then it goes into the origin story of how Captain Dynamo died and how Dynamo 5 was formed by injecting a truth serum into Visionary. I can't believe that Captain Dynamo (the Superman figure) cheated on his wife...
