Why Powers?

Powers is a hit independent series by the prolific Brian M. Bendis. The series takes place in a world where it is not uncommon for a person to have extraordinary powers. Some of these people end up as heroes or villains.

What makes this world unique is the approach to the story. The protagonists are two homicide detectives tasked with investigating deaths relating to those with "powers". This puts a much more realistic spin on the concept of a world where some people have powers that others do not. The impacts to society are something that would be intensely wide-spread and touch more territory than most comic books dare to tread. Powers goes into that territory and goes deep.

This week let's explore the underbelly of a world where there are powers. Even better if you can filter it through the eyes of law enforcement.
