What if everything in your life was out of your hands and those around you propelled your fate? Your girlfriend left you for your best friend; your boss gave your job to someone better. What if then, after all this, someone gave you back total control? What if he revealed you were the next in line to join a secret society of super-villians that controlled the entire planet? Mark Millar and J.G. Jones provide a look at one man who goes from being the world's biggest loser to the deadliest assassin alive.

    Ok. Figo. Gran charachter design. Ma la psicologia è un po' d'accatto e il gioco non potrebbe durare un minuto di più. Insomma sono contento di averlo letto, ma non vale né Kick Ass né uno qualunque dei fumetti di Alan Moore.

    Ah Mark Millar!
    Prima tutti ti amavano, poi qualcuno ha dato via al backlash e adesso tutti ti odiano e dove prima i tuoi fumetti erano stupendi affreschi postmoderni, adesso sono solo cazzate senza senso.

    Ah Mark Millar!
    Prima tutti ti amavano, poi qualcuno ha dato via al backlash e adesso tutti ti odiano e dove prima i tuoi fumetti erano stupendi affreschi postmoderni, adesso sono solo cazzate senza senso.

    Mi piacerebbe poter dire che la verità sta nel mezzo, ma i poveri scemi che ti criticano meritano una vita di Avengers Forever con più testo di Busiek che disegno.

    Il film riufiutatevi di guardarlo, è l'ennesimo insulto al mondo dei comics da parte di quelli del cinema.

    *** This comment contains spoilers! ***

    我得說我是因為Wanted電影吸引我,讓我想來看看漫畫究竟是演些什麼。當然結果就像網路上早就被人罵翻的一樣,電影確實改得亂七八糟啊XD,除了角色名字相同以外的確很少一樣的地方。

    但電影我會說它不好嗎?我的感覺就跟V怪客跟康斯坦汀差不多,如果看了原作都會覺得改得亂七八糟,但事實上我都覺得這些電影很好看。更何況Wanted作者也覺得Wanted電影很好看了,既然我很享受這部電影帶給我的娛樂我為什麼要不喜歡它呢?而且子彈會轉彎、打蒼蠅翅膀、還有他回去跟他女友示威那幾段我都覺得超棒的啊!

    回到漫畫吧 ...(continue)

    我得說我是因為Wanted電影吸引我,讓我想來看看漫畫究竟是演些什麼。當然結果就像網路上早就被人罵翻的一樣,電影確實改得亂七八糟啊XD,除了角色名字相同以外的確很少一樣的地方。

    但電影我會說它不好嗎?我的感覺就跟V怪客跟康斯坦汀差不多,如果看了原作都會覺得改得亂七八糟,但事實上我都覺得這些電影很好看。更何況Wanted作者也覺得Wanted電影很好看了,既然我很享受這部電影帶給我的娛樂我為什麼要不喜歡它呢?而且子彈會轉彎、打蒼蠅翅膀、還有他回去跟他女友示威那幾段我都覺得超棒的啊!

    回到漫畫吧,主角Wesley就是一個普通到不行的普通人,還有點衰也有點孬,同居的女友跟好友Fuck together,工作上一事無成一直被老闆噹,走在路上還會被路邊的混混嘲笑,可是他還能怎樣?但就在他以為他不能怎樣的時候,忽然一個女人衝進來說你其實有著supervillain的血統,然後一切就改變了。

    這部很有趣的地方是它並不是在講好人打壞人什麼的,而是講壞人的故事。Wesley得知自己其實有個supervillain的老爸,還繼承了他殺人的本事,而他爸最近被人殺死了,他得替他爸找出兇手報仇--當然他一開始完全不能接受--之後就開始了一連串的訓練以及瘋狂舉動,像是殺了當掉他的地理老師跟煩人的鄰居什麼的。

    接著他正式進入Solomon的組織,Solomon也推心置腹地告訴他這一切的歷史。原來在很久以前在Supervillain跟Superhero還存在的時候發生了一場大戰,Supervillain這邊贏了,然後用洗腦機器將以前那些超現實的東西給洗掉變成現在這樣「現實的世界」。我得說看到Solomon最偉大的戰利品,「一件紅色的披風」的時候,真的很震撼。於是Supervillain們為了避免平行世界的超級英雄來阻止他們,他們行事低調不見光,在背後運作統治著世界,Solomon的故事到了這裡。

    但Supervillain真的每個都甘願這樣嗎?就像同樣為Supervillain首領之一的Mr. Rictus說的一樣,他懷念人人聞風喪膽的日子,他要混亂他要戰爭,平行世界的英雄?「Bring it on!」

    一場Supervillain的戰爭就開打了。隨著戰爭的開打與結束Wesley才慢慢搞懂到底是怎麼一回事,一開始「父親被殺死」這件事到底是怎麼一回事。當一個Supervillain真的是他想要的嗎?

    整體下來故事真的很不錯看,相當有意思,雖然它沒有太著墨每個人能力是什麼(所以我一開始完全不懂Wesley是強在哪裡,Fox到底會幹嘛我現在還是不懂),畢竟它講得是人與邪惡之間一種截然不同的故事,要是扯到那些仔細想想似乎就會模糊掉焦點了。另外我還是覺得電影很不錯,雖然差很多但殊途同歸......算是吧?

    Firstly, if you are thinking about buying this only because you liked the movie - don't! They are almost completely different, and how much you enjoyed the film will have no relevance to what you think of this book. This is a book for those with an, at least basic, knowledge of the world of comic books and the concept of Super-Villains.

    The plot follows a regular guy who learns he is in fact the son of a recently killed Super-Villain and is to be inducted into their secret fraternity. At first glance the story would seem just a male adolescent fantasy with loads of swearing and gratuitous violence and, although this is true, it is actually a deceptively clever book, exploring lots of different themes. It explores what might happen if Superheroes and Villains actually existed - and the bad guys won, it references the change of tone that occurred in comic books in the mid-eighties, and has parallels to books like `Fight Club' and films like `The Matrix'.

    I enjoyed it. I've seen this book described as `the Watchmen for super-villains', which might be overstating the case a bit but gives you an idea of what to expect.

    prendete una grande battaglia tra buoni e cattivi, fate vincere i cattivi, lasciateli liberi di governare i cinque continenti, aggiungete un giovane imbranato, una dose di violenza, un pizzico di destino e avrete Wanted, una corsa adrenalinica su una fuoriserie, una pista di coca e un contest di rap mixati in uno shaker di slang U.S.A.!

    cos'è wanted? un gioco o una trappola?
    non certo l'anti-watchmen.

    piacevole, ma non lascerà segni, ve lo garantisco.
