If Idolized #0 was a trailer for the new comic series from the brain of creator, David Schwartz, Idolized #1 is our introduction to this wondrous world full of superheroes. The new television show, “Superhero Idol”, is set to air. The superheroes are contending to make it into the top ten. The audition process is similar to American Idol orMasterchef, the contestants go in one by one. They are placed in front of three judges (which, ironically enough, take after judges that we all know) and are either accepted or turned down.
The story flashes back to Joule as a child. It seems that a world of superheroes should be out fighting crime and keeping the peace for all. This isn’t the case here as Joule reveals the darker side of this world where a constant fear is continually present. Those with superpowers have divided themselves into heroes and villains. They are not staying in control of or taking responsibility for their actions. Joule lost her family, as a young child, due to this violence. The guilt, and a penchant for revenge, has caused Joule to work hard at her training so that never happens again.
