Image Comics and Radiant Black #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

Down On His Luck Gen Z Has Life Further Disrupted As Unexpected Cosmic Super-Hero?!

The book has a few more variant covers on top of the above.

Plus the main cover.

Nathan Burnett is a struggling novelist who has to move in with his parents as he deals with a mountain of debt that they don’t know about.

As Nathan and his buddy exit the bar after a night of commiserating…  

…they stumble on an unknown phenomena and…

…of course Nathan touches it and..

…becomes super-hero costumed.

Despite not having a mouth space on the mask, the disorienting effects of the transition causes Nathan to hurl from the costume outside.

Cops try to get them off the train tracks as a train comes barreling down triggering an automatic response from the suit or from Nathan’s mind.

If he thinks it, it appears it can happen, including flying away.

Nathan thinks off the helmet, but worries if he’ll screw this new super-hero stuff up, but his buddy says he won’t let him as…

…readers learn there is another out there wearing a variation of Radiant Black’s costume, but this guy is robbing a bank in Chicago.

That villain appears to be Radiant Red…

…a presumed foil for Radiant Black.

Perhaps more Radiants to come with the various colors of the rainbow?

The Pulse:

A relatable first issue for many, particular the pre-super-hero parts, but a fun issue nonetheless. Compelling story with a budding mystery. Decent art. A fun issue. I’ll be back. 8 out of 10.
