Nitrogen

 NITR   (Arcade, 2005)

™ and ©2005 Rob Liefeld

It’s sometimes taken as a given that “with great power comes great responsibility.” But what if a group of super-powered individuals decided to serve only their own ends? And what if, on the way, they spent time trampling the accomplishments of the heroes who had come before them?

This dark tale focuses on a group of rebellious youths who call themselves the Nitros and are only out for themselves. But don’t worry about them—worry about anyone, including former friends, inspirations, or lovers, who get in their way.

The name “Rob Liefeld” attached to any project frequently inspires controversy, but the guy does have a lot of interesting ideas floating around in his head. Liefeld only handles the plotting, but since the book is written and drawn by people evidently trained by him, it may as well be all Liefeld, all the time. The dialogue and are artwork are traditionally over-the-top, although they have their moments.
