really liked it

Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Simon Pooni has fallen on hard times. Hanging out with his friend to see classic superhero films on the big screen, Simon wants his high school life back. When a mysterious talking monkey offers to grant him the ultimate wish, Simon is transformed into the fictional hero Superior. Over the course of a week, Simon shows the world the true face of heroism, but must choose between the gift he's been given and the consequences of keeping it forever. What follows is a fantastic real-world send up of Superman/Shazam! mixed with a heavy dose of Mark Millar's genius. This is what modern-day heroism and storytelling could and should be - kudos to Millar and artist Lenil Yu for crafting a superior story.
