From Mid-Life Crisis to Hero’s Journey: ‘Supernatural’ Creator Eric Kripke Talks Vertigo Series ‘Jacked’ [Interview]

We all wish we had superpowers. Being the first person in the real world to get special abilities has provided the through-line for many superhero tales, and it's an idea that's scary and appealing all at once. It's easier to relate to someone in a familiar situation being endowed with inhuman abilities than it is a guy from the 1940s who was frozen in a block of ice for 70 years.

As the creator of Supernatural, Eric Kripke is no stranger to ordinary men facing fantastical circumstances. With his new Vertigo series Jacked, Kripke is looking to further explore those themes, but this time in the realm of superheroes. Teamed with artist John Higgins, Kripke's tale of an unextraordinary man given extraordinary powers will explore the realities of being the first powered person in a normal world --- but with the sort of dark twist you'd expect from a Vertigo title. We talked with Kripke about his inspiration for the story, why comic books were the right venue, and how Jacked might add to Vertigo's legacy.
