A comic book series by EdBrubaker combining Noir and {{superhero}}es.

Holden Carver used to be a black ops operative for the American Government agency known as International Operations. When his late father was revealed to have been a traitor, Carver stole a retrieved alien artifact and went rogue, eventually joining a syndicate of super-powered criminals.

Except that's not true. Carver unintentionally became bonded with the artifact while on a mission; he was recruited to infiltrate the syndicate by his mentor John Lynch. The preceding is just a cover story.

That is until a failed assassination of his handler sends Lynch into a coma, and the cover story becomes, for all intent and purposes, reality. Carver then has to find his own way out while doing more and more questionable things to maintain his cover.

Not to be confused with the WoodyAllen film.
