Mark Waid stunned the world when he brought the BOOM! Studios comic series Irredeemable to the world. Plutonian, a character almost more powerful than Superman, is the world’s greatest hero until he snaps and becomes its greatest villain, going on a power-hungry and genocidal rampage across the Earth. The story stunned the world and it became a classic to nerds, geeks, and collectors everywhere, earning a Will Eisner Nomination. However, is it really as good as we remember? After reading all ten graphic novel volumes in the series, I dare to ask, was it really that good?
