Synopsis

This is a story about an unconventional, unorthodox superhero. He will suffer from PTSD, alcoholism, and anger management issues. After years of serving his country, Connor wants nothing but to serve himself. He will be conflicted with nightmares not only about his past but as well as his future. He will be given random superpowers only in a time of need and never more than one at any given time.

Connor will be on a journey of discovery, not just who he is but where his powers come from. He will be approached by mysterious people and dreams that tell him, "You are being given a gift, now let's see what you do with it." Instead of accepting these gifts, he will do whatever he can to deny them and ignore them. This will cost him, and cost him dearly. There will be not be a "come to Jesus moment" like Peter Parker did after the death of his uncle Ben. No, our hero is way more troubled to take on responsibility so easily. Feats of super strength, flying, invulnerability, empathy (which will serve as his most difficult power), invulnerability and more powers can be expected, but not all at once.

Our first few chapters delves into the mind of a person suffering with psychological issues. His PTSD, that he suffered while serving overseas, will make him question his sanity and make him wonder if he really is hearing this voice in his head as well as from others. He will be struggling with doing the right thing, when he is given his first power, super-strength. I have a whole list of super powers that he will be trying to control as the chapters run, but first is super-strength. Connor will learn that, "Doing a thing right is easy, but doing the right thing is always painful."

The next chapters will feature him wrestling with responsibility balanced with normalcy. All the while, he will be searching for answers about himself and about where these powers come from. He will realize that he is his own worst enemy.

Finally, he will be hit hard in the insuing chapters. Connor will endure great loss, and heartbreaking defeat. What will he do after?

Sales arguments

  • Comic Vault, a comic book store in Cypress will be willing to consign my comic for me.
  • I have attended Comic cons in Houston in the past, and plan on attending this coming year, (Covid-19 not being an issue), and bring along my comic and showcasing it
  • I have a blog, Comicbookpurist.com which I will be plugging.

Similar titles

  • Captain America Omnibus, by Jack Kirby. He is the antithesis of captain america yet is ex-military as well.
  • Punisher Max Complete Collection Volume 1 by Darick Robertson. More closely related to my hero, same attitude but will not be hunted by the law.
  • Superman The Man of Steel Vol 2 by John Byrne. Similar powers to superman but will not stand for the same things.

Audience

My primary audience will be adults who like a grittier take on a superhero; but Young adult/teen will be attracted to the idea as well.

Advance praise

There are reviews on amazon for "Exquisite Anger".
Published twice in "Texas Best Emerging Poets" in consecutive years.
