Ryan Browne And Pete Woods On Their Super-Satire 'Hero Killers'
Dynamite Entertainment founded its Project Superpowers line as a way to reverently pay respects to the Golden Age superheroes that had fallen into the public domain, but later this year a new series is taking a decidedly irreverent spin on the concept. Ryan Browne and Pete Woods' Hero Killers is set in a town where everyone's a superhero and the old guard aren't retiring to make way for the next generation, so the up-and-coming heroes decide to do something about it. Ahead of the release of Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #1, ComicsAlliance chatted to Browne and Wood about their take on beloved characters and their influences in applying satirical tropes to an established superhero universe.

Dynamite Entertainment has made a name for itself in the past decade as the place to go for reverential yet modern takes on classic Golden Age superheroes like The Black Terror, The Death-Defying Devil, and The Green Lama in its Project Superpowers shared universe. Now, Dynamite is throwing out the rulebook and has recruited Ryan Browne and Pete Woods for a new superhero satire series titled Project Superpowers: Hero Killers, about a group of teenage heroes trying to make a name for themselves in a crowded market.
