A Super Hero Deconstruction
comic created by Grant Morrison
and Steve Yeowell. Zenith
follows teen superhuman turned pop star Robert MacDowell, more popularly known as his stage name "Zenith" or "Superbrat" to the press. Superficial and spoilt rotten, Zenith is recruited by the previous generation of superhumans to fight against the Lloigor
. Unfortunately, as cowardly and inept as he is, Zenith is mostly reduced to being a supporting character in his own comic.
The series was initially published in 2000 AD
, spanning four "phases" between 1987 and 1992. Phase III is particularly notable, since it takes place across The Multiverse
and featured a multitude of classic British superheroes, both named and ersatz
. An incomplete list can be found here
