Max Damage’s path to redemption finally seems straightforward. The reformed supervillain has a new sidekick watching his back, a world that’s beginning to trust him, and two solid allies—Police Lieutenant Louis Armadale and Alana Patel, the Plutonian’s ex-girlfriend—who have begun to feel like family. Then, without warning, the Plutonian is back, and Max finds he is woefully unprepared to defend Earth against its most terrifying enemy. What lengths will he go to in order to be ready to take Plutonian on—and what sacrifices will he have to make? The latest volume in the companion series to the Eisner-nominated Irredeemable, by award-winning writer Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, Empire).
