(W) Adam Warren (A/CA) Adam Warren
From Adam Warren (writer/artist of the English-language The Dirty Pair comics, and writer of Livewires, Gen13, and Iron Man: Hypervelocity) comes Empowered, a butt-kicking, bootylicious superhero lampoon that raises the bar for long-john lust and lowbrow laughs. Remove all previous notions of superhero entertainment from your puny mind...and prepare to be empowered!

Not only is costumed crime fighter Empowered saddled with a less-than-ideal superhero name, but she also wears a skintight and cruelly revealing supersuit that only magnifies her body-image insecurities. Worse yet, the suit's unreliable powers are prone to failure, repeatedly leaving her in appallingly distressing situations...and giving her a shameful reputation as the lamest "cape" in the masks-and-tights business. Nonetheless, she pluckily braves the ordeals of her bottom-rung superheroic life with the help of her "thugalicious" boyfriend (and former Witless Minion) and her hard-drinking ninja girlfriend, not to mention the supervillainous advice from the caged alien demonlord watching DVDs from atop her coffee table.
