Powers v13: #4
Z: Part 4 by Brian Michael Bendis (writer) and Michael Avon Oeming (artist) - This segment of the story had much less action but was much more interesting than the previous one. The story developed, stuff was revealed, important stuff. The picture is closer to complete than it was before. Stuff didn't just happen, important stuff happened.
The war hero, Z, is disparaged a little more, first by the teen who claims to have killed him and then by one his old war buddies. Z wasn't the man, the hero he claimed to be. he was a boozing thug who lived off a reputation he didn't fully earn.
Lines start to get blurred. Walker has trouble remembering the past, which isn't a new phenomenon.
