Comic Book / All Superheroes Must Die

Go To

Charge: An All Superheroes Must Die Comic is a prequel comic to the film, following Cutlass, the Wall, Shadow, and Charge as they embark on their career as superheroes.

This comic book exhibits the following tropes:

  • Badass Normal: If the intro is to be believed, this is how all superheroes operated prior to the protagonists.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Charge has no powers. He's just a highly trained normal person.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Cutthroat accidentally punches a thug's jaw off because he doesn't realize how much power his speed adds.
  • The Dragon: Sledgesaw appears as Rickshaw's Dragon and executioner of heroes.
  • Embarrassing Animal Suit: Rickshaw's minions are forced to wear fursuits, even while moving boxes around in the warehouse.
  • Fantastic Drug: 90s, which apparently causes people to blow up 90 seconds after they're injected.

  • Find the Cure!: Cutthroat gets stabbed with a syringe of 90s and they have to find the antidote before the person in question explodes.
  • Invisibility: Shadow's power.
  • Magic Antidote: Cutthroat takes the antidote with seconds to spare, and looks entirely unharmed.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: The Wall's power.
  • Noodle Incident: The explanation for how they got their powers still isn't covered, although Rickshaw implies that he was supposed to have received those powers.
  • Spontaneous Human Combustion: This is the effect 90s has on its subjects.
  • Super Speed: Cutthroat's power.
