No not ever!
The Champion of the Emerald City battles an onslaught of kidnappers, drug dealers, litigious lawyers, and alien robots, but he is not alone. He relies on his new-found faith, and he has the help of his friends Zolgron and Captain France. Enjoy laughs and fond memories of the superheroes you've loved since childhood in these two sensational novellas.
Dave Johnson's dreams have come true. He's taken Seattle by storm as Powerhouse, a metal-clad crime fighter. His awesome array of powers has the underworld on the run, his charitable efforts are a success, and he has a popular comic book. When his publisher is bought out, he's given every fan's dream: he's tasked with creating his own line of comic books. His biggest problem is his tendency to attract campy, wannabe “supervillains” who aren't worthy opponents.
As Powerhouse, Dave Johnson has become a local legend in Seattle, but choruses of voices advise him that he's wasting his time defending the Emerald City. He's urged to take on more ambitious goals, like defending New York, being a full-time comic book executive, or becoming a bat-breaking evangelist. These questions are pushed into the background when Powerhouse is confronted with an unprecedented crime wave launched by the interdimensional warlord Varlock as part of his effort to help King Bel conquer the Earth.
