‘Imagine a place where everyone has their own unique superpower, and you can tell just from looking at them what that power must be. Imagine a street full of people like that. Then imagine a world.

Who else but Rob Williams could write it?’ – Garth Ennis What if everyone woke up with superpowers – and it was the worst thing in the world?
