The Strangers

    (Malibu, 1993-1995)
™ and ©1994 Malibu Comics Entertainment, Inc.

Over fifty complete strangers were on the Powell Street cable car when it was hit by what looked like lightning. The cable car crashed into a sports car, apparently killing its driver (but actually, creating the Night Man). Miraculously, nobody on the cable car seemed seriously hurt. Still, in an all-too-real way the cable car’s passengers found that the accident had changed them.

Within hours, this cross section of humanity found itself blessed (or cursed) with super-human abilities. These range from a pair of art students, with the powers to explode and transmute matter, to a young street kid with incredible speed. Strangest of all is Candy, a robotic experiment of magnate J.D. Hunt, who somehow gains both powers and sentience in the freak “lightning” known around the world as “the Jumpstart.”
