Fiction's Finest Nerds #22

We go back to the spoof super well today with Adam Warren's Empowered.

As a young girl she dreamed of being a superheroine, then one day received a hypermembrane that gave her super powers!

Oh, and she can't wear anything under it (like, uh, underwear) or over it (like a cape) or it malfunctions. Plus, she has body issues. Besides that, she is not very good at being a superhero and typically is found trussed up like Robin in a Golden Age Batman comic. Also, as her hypermembrane deteriorates (which happens easily) she loses her powers in kind.

It's a bit of a T&A comic, though I've seen no nudity in it. It pokes a lot of fun at comics in general, but specifically where the female form and costume are concerned. For the most part it is a lot of fun. Little snippets of superhero parody, only a few pages long. Very Manga-y art, but not a Manga-y comic (too much).

See more at Deviant Art.
