Overview

Already under official suspicion and suspended from her superteam, costumed crimefighter Empowered finds herself the bewildered target of every major supervillain in the capes-and-tights field for her supposed access to alien technology. With a trick or two up her tattered supersuit's sleeve, can our tirelessly plucky but sadly underestimated heroine outwit her army of tormentors--and escape the long-simmering revenge of the sinister Fleshmaster?

"This is a fantastically rendered book on every conceivable level, and much like Empowered herself, has to work even harder to get the respect it deserves. Luckily they're both way more powerful than most people ever expected them to be." --comicbookresources.com

P_Warten More than 1 year ago
Warren's series gets darker in this ninth volume as Emp is under attack from both ally and enemy alike. Her fellow heroes may believe her about the crazier things that happened since the Capey Awards disaster, but now they view her as a greater threat and want to jail her. Meanwhile, villains have found out Emp can access incredible alien tech and seek to capture her, which given her bondage-victim reputation seems like an easy thing to do... The brilliance of this volume is how Warren takes all the previous details and story history and build on them, revealing that Emp has become an even better superhero despite the problems she keeps facing. Warren also does a good job of wrapping up one loose thread, the plotline involving Emp's fanboy Manny and the fate of Flesh-Master. If Volume 9 has a problem it's with pacing: the epic scale of what Emp goes through this issue forces the stories into a convoluted and long-winding narrative that makes it hard to keep track of who's actually attacking Emp at any given point. Where earlier volumes Warren was able to effectively break things down into simpler, more focused chapters, he isn't able to do that here. It may be a problem of the story itself.
