(W/A) Adam Warren. Costumed crimefighter Empowered is briefly overjoyed to find herself in the running for one of the superhero community's annual Caped Justice Awards (or 'Capeys')-only to discover that her nomination was merely a cruel joke by her obnoxious superpeers. But when the masked masses face a cataclysmic reckoning for previous heartless hoaxes, can our perpetually struggling heroine overcome her resentment and save the day? And can she cope with the further problems posed by cross-dressing vigilantes, dying wishes from preteen wannabe supervillains, telepathic 'booty calls,' a deeply depressed ninja, bedroom 'cosplay' conflicts with her boyfriend, and even . . . Hummer fu? From Adam Warren-writer/artist of the English-language Dirty Pair comics (the original 'Original English-Language Manga')-comes Empowered, a gut-busting gag-fest of life in the superhero slow lane. Dump your boxes of prefab power-fantasy pamphlets and load up on Empowered! .
