Outbreak heroes with a history twist.
OUTBREAK MUTINY is alternate history. With Superheroes. It takes place in a world where superpowers are real and an entire generation known as Outbreak Babies manifest their abilities after suffering a severe injury or trauma. In this world, superpowers are treated like a resource and those who possess them are in demand by the powerful.
The Reich has taken over the world after Germany pledged their allegiance to the most powerful of all Outbreak Babies, The Reichsmensch. He governs a caste society ruled by Warlords in conquered territories. Those who join the Reich attend Acolyte Academies where they seek the honor of earning a Warlord Trial.
Life is hard for those living outside the Reich in the Remnant States. The map I provided should show the new boundaries of the land known as the Old US. When Issue 1 begins, we find the stragglers in the Remnant just struggling to survive as a Virus breaks out in the Chicago Buffer Zone.
Once a war broke between group of powerful human beings and the United States, then group ended in defeat at the hands of Reichsmensch.
10 years later, a virus had plagued Chicago, the Outbreak babies attacked the zones and what was left of humanity. Superpowers could manifest at any time, nobody was safe.
The added concept of superhero's gave the novel comic all the more captivating situations more in depth characteristics of a great fantasy.
The alternative history stories always catch me by surprise and this book left me wanting more and looking forward to the next issues.
I found Outbreak Munity well-crafted and took sharp stabs at characters mysterious components of their abilities that gave more depth to the story as a whole.
Even if you're not a comic book fan, this story will definitely not disappoint.
You Die Free, or Live in Chains. Which will you choose?
