The Adventures of Unemployed Man
I'm not one to hawk a comic book, but this looks frickin sweet!
Some of the "characters" in this:
In better times, Unemployed Man was a hero called The Ultimatum—but after the financial meltdown, he was left with no money, and the U on his suit took on a very different meaning. Now he secretly lives under his former mansion in a cave—Rock Bottom.
He soon teams with Plan B, and other down-but-not-out superheroes, to fight the sinister villains of The Just Us League, including The Human Resource, The Toxic Debt Blob, and The Invisible Hand! "
Unrecognized by society for her contributions, unseen for her basic humanity, and often undetected by authorities, Fantasma is The Invisible Girl from Oaxaca.
She's an economic refugee whose family—generations of corn farmers—was defeated after NAFTA by The Subsidizer and The Invisible Hand.
Like a ghost, she knows how to hide herself and disappear. But like a ninja, she uses the tools of her trade (cleaning supplies) as martial arts weapons."
Fellowman is a cross between classic Superman and a dreadlocked Rasta. He has the power of empathic conductivity. He can make people feel the pain (or other emotions) they've caused others through the sense of touch."
You wouldn't like him when he's ANGRY!!!!
White Rage has a right to be angry. The only problem is, his rage is completely misdirected at the very things that would stop his rage. See his origin story -- click on the image on the right."
He makes your job go POOF! Magical master of the margin & global supply chain illusionist. With a wave of his magic wand, all costs disappear!"
His stretchy limbs wrap around and entrap his victims like twisted rubber bands. He encourages people to "Just put it on the card!" then he mumbles some legalese so fast you can't hear it. He's become more and more powerful over the last 30 years. As he puts it, "I'm not evil, no. I'm necessary evil." "
"NICKEL & DIME
Evil pair of silent killers behind such sinister plots as ATM fees and value added tax.
Once they've done the deed, they rejoice in throwing it in your face—literally bashing you over the head with bags of nickels and dimes. “You just got Nickel 'n' Dimed, biyotch!" "
A superhero corporate lawyer with a massive hole in his head, through which he can suck documents, material evidence, regulations, taxes, fines, fees, and anything else he doesn't like, into oblivion. He works closely with Snow Job and Zero Sum. "
