Wildstorm Winter Special (Various)

Decided to venture into the Wildstorm Universe once again.  This special, much like an Annual, has several stories in it, but I want to direct your attention to the Apollo/Midnighter story “Two Dangerous Ideas”.  For those that don’t know anything about Apollo/Midnighter, they were created by Warren Ellis as intentional analogues to Superman and Batman, only in the Wildstorm universe they are canonically gay and in a committed relationship/marriage.  The two are also decidedly more violent and are more than willing to kill their enemies, but at the end of the day they go home to each other and…it’s pretty sweet.

In this particular story, Apollo and Midnighter are presented with an alternate universe version of themselves, Pluto and Daylighter, and tasked to help them kill an idea that is killing people left and right, but there is more than one dangerous idea to which Apollo and Midnighter are introduced.  On the surface, there seems to be one fundamental difference between these doppelgangers, but it’s not exactly what Midnighter initially thinks.

Apollo, Midnighter, and the Authority may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but I think they are important to get to know because a) they are being included in the larger DCnU in the fall, b) they are canonically gay MALE superheroes that are in a relationship, which is rare, and c) Paul Cornell will be writing them and I’m actually looking forward to that.

This book may possibly be found in your LCBS, though I don’t know how available it is.  I found mine in a 50 cent bin once so maybe you’ll get lucky.

Day 06 - Favorite super hero and whyJack Hawksmoor, King of Cities, from The Authority
Jack isn’t the strictest definition of superhero, but then I’m not really sure what superhero really means nowadays.  Still, he saves lives with superhuman powers and he goes beyond what a normal hero would do and protects the human race (or whatever race is threatened unjustly) when the need arises, so I guess he still is a superhero.
The BAMF gains power from being in a city, hence the name.  Tad of a spoiler, his innards were replaced with time-alien technology so that he would be able to connect with any city (in whatever form it may be, from New York to rural bush villages).  His power is directly proportional to the size and density of the urban area, meaning Japan, Manila, or India might make him near-invincible.  Conversely, deserts or plains will completely drain him of his strength, even to the point of killing him.  He lives with the city and possibly dies with it. He never wears shoes, by the way -his soles have grooves on them, which pretty much act like shoes anyway.
His powers range from walking on walls to talking to the cities themselves, referring to San Francisco as a woman in one issue.  He can even command the buildings to collapse or rebuild at whim.  There is also the ability to travel from one city to another - he phases through the streets of Mumbai and he can reemerge on the side of some building in Singapore.
He is my favorite superhero not really because of his powers, but because of his personality.  He can (and the whole of The Authority, for that matter) can actually be considered as a group of anti-heros.  Mercy, compassion, modesty - no, that’s not them at all.  As you can see in the photo, Jack literally breaks through the body of one of the villains, as if he was a Pop Tart or something.  There’s no glossy “I’m the ultra good” facade when it comes to Jack - if you deserve the shit that’s coming to you, well, that’s what you’ll get.
In short, I just told you that he is my favorite superhero because of his character. K, I hope you read long enough to get here.
