PROTECTORS INC. #1-10 (J.M. Straczynski / Purcell & Atiyeh)

Dans un monde sans super-vilains, la mort d’un super-héros soulève de nombreuses questions. Ainsi démarre l’enquête du commissaire John Riley, déterrant les plus noirs secrets de la communauté des surhommes pour découvrir leurs mystérieuses origines.

C’est le point de départ de la maxi-série Protectors Inc. imaginée par le scénariste J. M. Straczynski et illustrée par Gordon Purcell & Mike Atiyeh. Le premier des douze numéros sera publié chez Image Comics en novembre sous le label Joe’s Comics (Ten Grand, Sidekick).

Protectors, Inc.: Heroes in a world without super-powered bad guys. Heroes with corporate sponsors and far too polite rivalries and sporting franchises. Heroes without anything or anyone to fight…until one of them is murdered in ways that could only have been accomplished by someone with equal powers.
Solving the mystery falls to Lieutenant Detective John Riley, an ordinary man whose investigation takes him into a strange and dangerous world light years beyond his abilities to understand and very likely far beyond his capacity to survive. The trail leads to a fifty-year-old secret that could threaten the very existence of Protectors, Inc., an impossible love affair, and a serial killer whose work is not yet finished.[/quote]

[size=150]INTERVIEW DU SCÉNARISTE J. M. STRACZYNSKI[/size]

Petite question : le concept de “super-héros” peut-il exister sans “super-vilains” ?

Je pense que oui.

J’aime bien l’idée de mélanger whodunit et super-héros. Et la partie artistique a l’air à mon goût.
Pourquoi pas !

Je pense que c’est la question que soulève la série. Réponse en novembre.

[quote=“soyouz”]
…] ça manque d’argumentaire pour lancer la vraie discussion ! :mrgreen:[/quote]

Bon d’accord je me lance. :wink:

Car un super-héros n’a pas besoin d’un antagoniste en la personne d’un super-vilain pour exister, et je le prouve : mémotype super-héroïque.

En outre, pour le cas d’espèce qui nous occupe ici, quelqu’un capable de tuer un super-héros ne devient-il pas de fait un super-vilain ?

ça dépend de la définition que tu donnes à “super-vilain” ! Et est-ce que le concept du “super-vilain” a besoin de celui du “super-héros” pour exister ?

[size=85](cool, j’ai déjà un premier sujet pour le bac. Pour les autres, j’irai chercher dans les posts de nemo !)[/size]

Un super-héros peut très bien oeuvrer dans un monde avec de simples malfrats comme des braqueurs, dealer… C’est d’ailleurs le cas dans Watchmen :wink:

oui, mais alors c’est le super heros qui devient un super vilain, cf ozy et le comediens.

et que fais tu de molloch ?

Molloch est un criminel et non un super vilain pour moi. Il n’a pas l’ampleur d’un Joker, Luthor, Fatalis ou autre.

Je suis même pratiquement sûr qu’il n’avait pas pour ambition d’être comparé ainsi. :wink:

An unexplained local disappearance, a corpse that lands several hundred miles from the scene of the crime, and the very first death of one of the Protectors…what do these three seemingly unrelated incidents have in common? And why is Protectors, Inc. so determined to whitewash the possibility that the super-powered hero was murdered? Lieutenant Detective Riley may be the only one who really wants to discover the truth.[/quote]

Je dirais que non. On peut assimiler Fantômas a un super vilain, non?

Cover by: Gordon Purcell.
Description: In every good mystery, there’s a moment when the detective confronts the suspects to try and figure out which of them is the killer. But generally speaking, the suspects aren’t powerful enough to fly you five miles straight up, rip off your limbs, and drop you into the Atlantic. That’s the problem faced by Lieutenant Detective John Riley, when he finally comes face to face with the Protectors, one of whom may have murdered the Huntsman. Meanwhile, an autopsy on a woman presumed to have died in a boating accident reveals a grisly connection to the Protectors…
