In VENGEANCE, the first issue of what is arguably the most mysterious power comic find to date, we are introduced to Marco, a shape-shifting manatee with super strength, incredible speed, slightly above average intelligence and supreme aquatic agility. Marco breaks out of a top security area and is followed in hot pursuit by the mysterious “special govt. lab security team”. Retreating to the ocean in search of his family, Marco discovers they have been brutally killed - murdered - by a reckless speedboat. A fate ”..tragic, but not unusual in the world of the manatee.” Marco swears revenge and upon finding the killer’s boat he unwittingly exposes a massive cocaine trafficking operation! Now with double justifiable urges to kill, the manatee engages in a epic shootout between the “high-grade nose candy” dealers, their sketchy buyers, FBI agents and the genetic lab security ending with triumphant Marco graphically murdering his parents’ killer with a boat propeller. -GD
