Powers #21

Posted: Sunday, July 7, 2002

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Michael Avon Oeming
Publisher: Image

Powers recalls a forgotten clue from the original Who Killed Retro Girl? story. A conspiracy seems to be afoot, and it's up to Deena sans Walker to break in a new partner and suss out the culprits.

Michael Avon Oeming produces his strongest issue to date, and I notice that the super-heroes in Powers through his design are gaining greater substance. No longer do they merely represent an archetype.

In this issue, Bendis and Oeming create a hero that looks to be his own character rather than idea. You actually feel sorry for this character when something nasty occurs, and you wish you could have spent more time with him.
