Feel Empowered by Adam Warren’s Sexy Superheroine
With their superfit bodies and supertight costumes, there should be no doubting the sexual foundation of superheroism. This libidinous legacy is joyously celebrated by the exceptionally talented Adam Warren in his latest genre-straddling efforts collectively titled Empowered.
Mr. Warren’s latest comic series is a richly developed alternate reality riddled with costumed crimefighters, vengeful vigilantes and vile supervillains. Empowered is an awkwardly named junior member of the SuperHomies — and is constantly mocked for her uncanny knack of being captured, bound and humiliated by a seemingly endless parade of low-rent baddies.
Helping her confront her body issues and continual embarrassments — in spite of a long list of unconventional victories — are her boyfriend and former evil minion and Thugboy, a New Jersey shinobi princess Ninjette, and a coffee-table-bound interdimensional being seething with impotent rage, lust and helpful advice.
Each of the five trade paperbacks currently in print contain a wide assortment of zany, bloody, sexy and heroic exploits of Emp and her post-human and otherworldly associates. Don’t miss any of them!

This is one of my favorites and it has only been getting better. I’m not going to say anymore for fear of spoilers but I will say I’ve shed tears over what is basically a T&A version of the Greatest American Hero.
