''Last Man Standing'' is a graphic novel series by Daniel Lu'Visi. The series, set 600 years in the future of an AlternateUniverse, concerns a covert operations SuperSoldier named [[TheHero Gabriel]], who was formerly employed by a paramilitary organization named [[MegaCorp Armtech]].

Gabriel was originally the [[LastOfHisKind only]] [[SuperSoldier Paladin]] of [[WorldWarWhatever WWXIII]] (which involved a conflict with mars) to survive, and thus became the [[TitleDrop Last Man Standing]]. He returned home to [[AlternateUniverse Amerika]], loved and adored by the people and Armtech. He made the country into a virtual {{Utopia}} as he basically [[OneManArmy kicked all the criminal ass he could find]].

Admired and celebrated by most, Gabe’s world takes a sudden turn when he finds himself framed by the terrorist group Pandemonium, for a series of atrocious crimes he had no part in. For these alleged crimes, Gabriel is sent to the treacherous [[TheAlcatraz Level-9 Prison Facility]] and incarcerated with the very scum he helped put away.

After nine years of torture and agony, the once famed hero kills his captors and escapes the 9 levels of hell he has been condemned to. From here on forward, Gabriel embarks on a journey into the heart of darkness; the New Amerika, a world filled with colorful and deadly characters that will either help or try to eliminate him – neither of which attitude is always transparent. As the once invincible hero digs deep to unravel the true reason behind his framing, he also discovers a problem he never had to face before: He’s dying; and quickly.

You can find out more at the author's sites, located [[ here]] and [[ here]].

Not to be confused with the [[Film/LastManStanding1996 Bruce Willis film]], or the [[Series/LastManStanding2011 Tim Allen sitcom]]. Nor should it be confused with LastOfHisKind, where there literally is a last man standing.

!!''Last Man Standing'' provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: All female characters, except for [[RobotGirl Bonnie]]. Kind of ironic considering she's, you know, a robot.
* AxCrazy: [[ Looks like]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Abaddon]] sure isn't the talkative type.
* BioAugmentation: [[MegaCorp Armtech]] dabbles in this.
* {{BFG}}: Gabriel sports one, as shown in the picture at the top of the page. It looks remarkably similar to a [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 Bolter]].
** [[EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks Jawsome]] carries one as well.
* CelestialBody: [[{{God}} Hex]], as shown [[ here]], ''is'' the entire universe in one entity.
* {{Cyborg}}: A few of them are running around. The most notable one would be [[NinjaPirateRobotZombie Judge]], a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]] PsychoElectro GlassCannon who used to be a [[HuskyRusskie Russian Soldier]] before his death while working for [[MegaCorp Armtech]]. He got better, and now he's looking to lay down a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the people who left him to die.
* DeadpanSnarker: Gabriel.
* DirtyCop: [[FairCop Noa]], ironically.
* GunsAkimbo: A couple characters use this.
* TheLastTitle: The title.
* MadDoctor: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Pain]].
* MegaCorp: Armtech.
* NighInvulnerable: Gabriel's only super power.
-->'''Gabriel:''' ''[[DeadpanSnarker Before you start getting excited]], [[Franchise/{{Superman}} I can't fly. I don't have x-ray vision]] or [[ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} claws]] and [[Franchise/SpiderMan I wasn't bitten by any insects]]. I can't [[HealingFactor regenerate]] and as much as I'd love to be, [[Franchise/{{Batman}} I'm not a multi-billionaire with a fascination for winged mammals]]. What I can do is [[OneManArmy kick ass]] and [[MadeOfIron take a whole lot of ass kicking]].''
* OneManArmy: His character bio uses these exact words to describe Gabriel.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: [[ChickMagnet Ronin]], Gabriel's best friend from [[RaginCajun Louisiana]].
* ParentalAbandonment: [[WhipItGood Eris]]' dad was DrivenToSuicide when he lost all his money, and her mother was killed by an [[MegaCorp Armtech]] officer that she dated to get over her husband's death.
* PermaStubble: Several badass guys sport one, including Gabriel.
* PhlebotinumRebel: You may notice that this happens a lot to [[MegaCorp Armtech]].
* PhysicalGod: [[ Hex]]. Yes, that's the entire universe in him.
* RobotDog: RO-bot K-9, or RO for short. He differs in that he's a bipedal, {{Cyborg}} dog built for WWXIII who [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters went rogue]]. He then hooked up with a cat (apparently the creator's) that can act named GIZMO.
* RobotMaid: Bonnie.
* SmokingIsCool
* SoulBrotha: [[AfroAsskicker Abel]]. So much so that he operates on a level of badassness that not even Gabriel can comprehend. [[NameOfCain Kane]], his pet [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkey]] that also sports an Afro, helps seal the deal.
* WorldOfBadass: Oh so much.
