The Mister U.S. Conspiracy

If you thought Big Bang 8 from Image Comics was the end of the superhero character Mister U.S., then you were wrong! Mark Lewis and I (Nat Gertler) are making it our goal to try to get this inherently flexible character to appear in as many places and as many forms as possible. As a recent Internet news announcement noted: "We're trying to get Mister U.S. appearing whenever and wherever possible, slowly embedding the character into the public consciousness, until the masses start demanding big-budget Mister U.S. product," said Gertler. "We won't, of course, provide such product. That would be selling out. Besides, our real goal is to create a mass disillusionment that will make it easier to achieve world conquest."
