CM Podcast 156 – Irredeemable

In 2009, Mark Waid thought to himself “What if Superman was a complete bastard?” and this was the impetus for his original series – Irredeemable.

Irredeemable was written by Mark Waid with art by Peter Krause and it was published by BOOM! Studios.  It ran 37 issues and it was a psychological profile on “What if a man with Superman’s powers used them for evil instead of good and why would someone do that?”

The main character of the story is a super powered hero turned ultimate villain by the name of The Plutonian and the comic starts at the point of the Plutonian suddenly behaving very violently and evil and the rest of the superhero community has to find out what happened to him.  This comic starts at full throttle and never lets up.

Jon has never read the series so I gave him the trade of the first 4 issues and this is what we discuss in the podcast.

Your comics pal,

Jim
