Out of tragedy, a hero is born! In the roaring heart of the crucible, steel is made. In the raging flame of personal tragedy, men are sometimes forged into something more than human. Wealthy and successful at an early age, Richard Benson was preparing to enjoy a long and happy life with his family when crime took away his wife and young daughter. Once he was just a man, but now he is a machine of vengeance dedicated to the extermination of all crime. A figure of ice and steel, but more pitiless than both, Benson has become a symbol to crooks and killers–a terrible, almost impersonal force, masking cold genius and a nearly supernatural power behind a face as white and still as a dead man’s mask.

Superheroes and their derring-do are no longer confined to the cartoons, as a recent “biography” of Superman and this playfully entertaining collection of superhuman adventures attest. Coeditors John Varley and Ricia Mainhardt wisely avoid episodes from the established superhero pantheon in favor of those from imaginative, even twisted, superhero variations. Using Varley’s own wry tale of an invincible Soviet “Bolshoiman” as a springboard, they spotlight comic-book champions’ often tongue-in-cheek literary cousins, from Captain Cosmos to Captain Housework. B. W. Clough, for instance, drolly recounts “the Gazorcher’s” predicament of handing over “the goggles” to his Generation X-er daughter. Michael A. Stackpole in “Peer Review,” however, takes a turn toward serious action-adventure as he treats one crime fighter’s apparent defection into lawbreaking and his censure by fellow superheroes. In “Reflected Glory,” Paul Kupperberg soberly demonstrates how today’s world would really treat a superhero when a PR man slyly uses a superhuman vigilante to further his own career. These and the other stories well may satisfy both fans and foes of the comic-book scene.
