Em­pow­ered

Comic Heroes - - Comics We Rate - Kim­ber­ley Mar­gaux

It’s so hard be­ing a su­per­hero some­times! All that run­ning be­fore you’ve even had your morn­ing cof­fee, and your cos­tume rip­ping while you’re try­ing to fight... Em­pow­ered may be near­ing ten years old but it’s as sub­ver­sive and play­ful as ever. Su­per­heroes are celebri­ties who drink too much, pa­per­work must be filled in af­ter weapons or ve­hi­cles are de­ployed for bat­tle, and Em­pow­ered is an ev­ery­day girl who al­ways rips her suit in un­for­tu­nate places. It’s laugh-out-loud hi­lar­i­ous, and whip-smart.

The best thing in the se­ries so far is glo­ri­ous su­pervil­lain the Sol­dier Of Love. A prickly pink-haired an­ti­heroine who bran­dishes a magic wand like a vape pen, she’s an evil Cu­pid who’s stolen our hearts.
