I need to find out what happens with Faith, so I am continuing my reading of Faith and all of her adventures as the hero of Los Angeles.
Because you Demanded it! The high-flying hero that captured the Imagination of the world is back with a Colossal new ongoing series!
In a city under siege by robots, aliens, monsters, and even worse… celebrities, there is only one woman the people of Los Angeles can count on: the stratospheric superhero called Faith! Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe and could they just be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?
We have an up-and-coming super-villian who wishes to kill Faith to kickstart his career. Unfortunately for Faith, it’s her celebrity crush who plays just about every hero in all the Valiant Hollywood movies. But she does what she does best and takes him down!
Then we see Faith and her kind of boyfriend go a comic convention, but things don’t turn out the way she hopes when a Murder Mouse starts to steal from vendors and it leads to a load of Murder Mouses running around causing even more havoc. And somehow, there is a double of Faith as well. What else can you ask from a comic convention?
I truly love Faith, she believes vehemently in doing what is right, even life is throwing the most unexpected things her way. Including her celebrity crush trying to kill her to start his villainous career. But she doesn’t really let this get her down, or if it does, not for long. She’s a superhero, but she’s a human superhero and she suffers human trials and downturns. Faith is allowed to be HUMAN. Not many other superheros that I know of are allowed to be as human as Faith is allowed to be. And I love this about her and her story.
Do you like it when superheros are humanized? Why or why not? Comment below and let me know!
