Out today from AWA Upshots, The Resistance #4 by J. Michael Straczynski and Mike Deodato Jr., continues to tell of a world ravaged by an out-of-control virus that has left many ‘reborn’ with super powers. Think coronavirus with capes!

“A global disaster leaves hundreds of millions dead in its wake. Shortly after, a few thousand suddenly manifest superhuman powers. Born under a cloud, these reborn humans must discover who they are, why they possess such great powers and what, if any, responsibility they bear for the tragedy. Are they harbingers of more tragedy to come…or Earth’s last hope?”
