"Imagine a place where everyone has their own unique superpower, and you can tell just from looking at them what that power must be. Imagine a street full of people like that. Then imagine a world. Who else but D'Israeli could draw such a story? Now imagine it done with wit and wonder, and a talking bear, and a bloke who can magic beer out of thin air. Who else but Rob Williams could write it?""
- Garth Ennis
What if everyone woke up with superpowers - and it was the worst thing in the world?
This morning, divorced plumber Michael Fisher woke up in his crummy one-bedroom apartment in Queens, New York, to find the world had gone crazy. Everybody on planet Earth gained superpowers... apart from him. Now all he wants to do is make it into Manhattan to make sure his estranged son, Josh, is okay. But with giants, zombies and cabbies made of living galaxies thronging the streets, does the most ordinary man alive have a hope in hell?
Meanwhile, America's leaders try to make sense of the world-changing plague, and what it means for the future of the planet. Now that every country is a superpower, Michael may be the most important man on the planet!
