If anyone is wondering what the best way to do an origin story is, they should really consider reading this.
I've been plowing through the Powers trades over the last few months, and this was the latest one. A really, really interesting way to see how someone takes an original property and looks at its beginnings - and it goes to the very beginning in a unique, different, and fun way. Loved loved LOVED this.
If you're not reading Powers, I heartily recommend diving in. Not to mention that everything Bendis does appears to be worth your time, but this series really nails it.
