The Last Gleaming wiki last edited by DonFelipe on 03/19/14 06:02AM View full history

From the dawn of the 20th Century came a new chapter in mankind's history, unleashed during a time of great war and destruction.

It was the beginning of the Age of the SUPERPOWERS, yet with the closing of the Second World War, this new spark seemingly flickered and died.

Until now...

Now the story can be told of the great lost SUPERPOWERS -- men and women with incredible abilities who changed the course of mankind forever...

and who had been thought lost ...

Until now...

Now, DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT and Alex Ross unleash the SUPERPOWERS! This explosive #0 issue features a story crafted by Justice collaborators Alex Ross and Jim Kruger, joined by artists Stephen Sadowksi, Doug Klauba and additional art by Alex Ross.

The story of SUPERPOWERS begins here, in the present day with the Fighting Yank, coming to terms with the ghosts of his past and present! As our story unfolds, we journey to the heights and depths of the Second World War and come face-to-face with the great forgotten heroes of the ages, and solve the mystery of where these legends disappeared to after the great war.

This is THE event of 2007, and it leads directly into the SUPERPOWERS series! Issue #0 is where it all begins and features 28 pages of story and art PLUS a full SUPERPOWERS color sketchbook by Ross and original Ross interconnecting covers - all for just a buck!

Wow!!! 0

This is more a story recap then a review.Wow....what else can I say. I picked this up because it was only $1.00. I had the notion these Golden Age heroes would not interest me too much, but it's only a $1. I am man enough to say I was wrong.Fighting Yank takes it upon himself to trap all the heroes from the WWII era, with the belief they are hope (the notion of hope which escaped from Pandora's box when Hitler opened it). For those who do not know, Fighting Yank communicates with the ghost o...

Best Relaunch 0

Project Superpowers is an exciting relaunch of beloved characters from the early days of comics. These characters made my heartstrings tingle. It's like watching Superman: The Movie for the first time. You read these pages and especially the thoughts of the Fighting Yank and it really could make your eyes swell. The story is told from Yank's perspective and surprised me that there was discord and confusion in what "patriotism" means to different generations.The truth is there are different sides...
