Rob Williams to Write Relaunch of Project Superpowers

Posted by April 5, 2018 Comment

10 years after it was first launched, Dynamite is bringing back a new Project Superpowers series with Rob Williams (Suicide Squad) and Sergio Davila (Injustice) at the helm. The new series will kick off in July with a #0 issue set at only 10 cents — to go with the 10th anniversary, obviously. They’re calling this they’re biggest launch of the year… and it’s only April.

In the new story, an all-new threat faces the Earth, while the team faces turmoil from within and must overcome all obstacles to prove their worth and value in a world that desperately needs its heroes. The Black Terror, The Death-Defying ‘Devil, Sampson, Masquerade, Green Lama, Scarab and more are all here as the adventure begins again.

Writer Williams described it as:

In our new #0 you’ll see we’re introducing the new world via The Devil (Death Defying) and Green Lama. We’ll flash back to introduce new readers to the team’s World War 2 origins and how they were brought to the present via imprisonment in Pandora’s box. And then it’s introducing a brand-new threat. One not so rooted in their history. The main players, which include The Black Terror, The Scarab, Masquerade, are going to have to form a new incarnation of the team. And The Spirit Of the American Flag is hovering, watching, judging… A new host is going to be taken.

Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci talked about the new project and the introductory price:

We’ve been planning the relaunch of Project Superpowers for the last year, and knew we wanted to create the most compelling comic possible!  To do that, we were able to bring on board Rob Williams and Sergio Davilla, and it’s a great comic!  To ensure the widest audience possible reads the series, we are offering the #0 issue at .10 cents for the 10th Anniversary of Project Superpowers! I couldn’t be prouder of the creative team and comic, and can’t wait for fans to check it out!  I know that they will love it!

Project Superpowers #0 has a cover by Francesco Mattina (Dark Nights: Metal) and five sneak peek variant covers by John Royle, Philip Tan, Sergio Davila, Ed Benes and J.G. Jones.
It will be solicited in the May issue of the Previews catalog and scheduled to ship in July of 2018.
