YMMV: The Movement

The Comic Book

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: The Movement was a DC Comics book that's not set in Gotham or Metropolis, has no known heroes, and an unusual core theme. It was a very risky and non-mainstream book that despite its fans, could not find a big enough audience to keep the book going for more than 12 issues.
  • Wangst: Averted so far. The Movement is currently one of the few books featuring teenage superheroes as the main characters that is not overloaded with convoluted love triangles and exaggerated portrayals of depression. Some of the members do have issues, especially Burden, but said issues have not taken over the ongoing storyline.
  • The Woobie: Burden. He thinks he's possessed by a demon and accidentally killed his father. Guilt-ridden, he runs away from home.
