Ex Machina

    (WildStorm, 2004–2010)
™ and © 2004 Brian K. Vaughan & Tony Harris

A comics fan realizes his deepest fantasy, when a freak accident gives him super-powers, turning him into America’s first super-hero in this series written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Tony Harris.

Although this is a WildStorm title, it’s set in a self-contained universe (Thank God: no guest shots by The Authority) in which the main character, who can “talk” to machines and is Earth’s only super-hero, has hung up the costume and been elected mayor of New York City. This unfolds considerably better than it sounds, thanks to Vaughan’s appealing characterization and careful working out of the premise, and Harris’ stylish but clear art. Both creators know what they’re doing (see Y: The Last Man and Starman), and the last-page shot confirms that the readers are in capable hands.
