The Strangers come together as a team, as they face the menace of TNTNT.
Now with superhero names and costumes, the members of the Strangers – who gained their powers when an apparent bolt of lightning struck a cable car – face off against another team, financed by J.D. Hunt, who created the android now calling herself “Electrocute” as a member of the Strangers. As previously in the series, the production values remain high, the dialogue remains a little clunky.
A couple of subplots – about a man with cancer seemingly cured by the bolt from the sky in the first issue, and the hospitalized jazz musician Johnny Domino, injured in the same incident – continue to percolate. “Strangers” is classically styled superhero — or “ultrahero” — fun.
Strangers #3 is by Steve Englehart and Rick Hoberg.
