Costumed crime fighter 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 The Dirty Pair comics (the original "Original English-Language Manga")—comes Empowered, a gut-busting gagfest of life in the superhero slow lane. Dump your boxes of prefab power-fantasy pamphlets and load up on Empowered!
