Concept

To slap a satirical spin on the ludicrous nature of the financial crisis. As Jackie Chan is to Bruce Lee, so "Super Corporate Heroes" is to Alan Moore’s "Watchmen".

Bare Bones Summary

The corruption of ideals.

Synopsis

After powerful companies (and lobbyists) decimate the golden age of non-profit superheroes, new rules are designed and a new generation of superheroes use their extraordinary powers to earn a living. In this alternate reality, superheroes must be licensed by a mega insurance company called Superhero, Inc and people pay to be rescued. Saddle up for the absurdly modern misadventures of these working superheroes.

The narrative thread weaves around short vignettes detailing key moments in the lives of various superheroes that work for Superhero, Inc. The benefits of working for the company are fame and fortune. Their celebrity can dwarf the paparazzi frenzy of Hollywood stars and all-star athletes combined. The top earner and most famous is American Icon, a former country music star. His invulnerable strength is only matched by his binge drinking and playboy lifestyle. The hardest working superhero is Ms. Titanium. She’s just as strong as American Icon, but when she found out she’s only paid half his salary, she walks out to plot her revenge. Then there’s the working stiff heroes, who are overworked and often punished for saving people without a license. Enter Blue Collar (a.k.a. Hero in a Hatchback), a divorced father of three with more bills than cash, and Spinlar, a half fly, half spider Brazilian heartthrob who’s trying to live the American dream. His one problem? Spinning a web from his back end can keep even the best superhero’s career from advancing.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
