Comic Books from the Edge of the DC Universe Feature Edgy Characters in Extreme Situations Guaranteed to Bring Comic Book Fans High-Energy Thrills and Keep Them on the Edge of Their Seats. Here We Have for You a Fine Selection of the Edgiest Comic Book That DC Comics has to Offer.
Comic book artists are developing cutting-edge, extreme comic book characters that go beyond the traditional heroes and villains. The heroes are grittier and the women are sexier. The comic book pages are designed for a maximum impact. Heroes are turned into highly cool antiheroes, such as the famous characters Swamp Thing, Deathstroke, Animal Man , Grayson and Katana, just to name a few.
Cutting-edge comics venture beyond the traditional boundaries to extreme anatomy, extreme costuming, extreme special effects, and extreme methods of storytelling. Comic books on the edge are complex works that take the popular superhero genre and deconstructed it, then infuse it with greater political and psychological complexity.
For example, the popular Swamp Thing battles ecological terrorists and supernatural entities that threaten the balance of nature. Deathstroke is the highest paid and most dangerous mercenary in the DC Universe; his unique healing factor makes him very hard to kill. Grayson is the head of a mysterious organization, called Spyral that monitors superhuman activities. Katana is a highly skilled swordswoman whose blade drinks souls; she spends her free time whispering to her dead husband whose spirit is trapped within.
Teen Titans is one of the best examples of a comic book and their characters growing-up and becoming a comic book that is more on the edge. The Teen Titans cast of superheroes has changed and/or evolved into darker, edgier superheroes; taking then out of the puberty era giving them aggressive more strong-minded personalities.
Comics on the edge are often not intended to bring in new comic book readers, but to keep their existing readers intrigued, growing with the reader. Many times what seems really cool as a child, becomes ridiculous as we age. The story does not change; writers just add darker elements and depict superheroes with am edge to their character.
