The The First Hundred Days wiki last edited by Exile-616 on 07/02/14 03:01AM View full history

The world's lone superhero, known as the Great Machine, officiallyretired from crime fighting in June, 2001…in order to run for the office of Mayor of New York City. In the Eisner Award-winning Ex Machina: The First Hundred Days , the Great Machine, who has the ability to "talk" to electrical devices (from his office computer to the New York power grid), assumes public office, struggles to balance the budget, and settles a first amendment dispute at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
