Aron Warner's Pariah
Brent Marks is a 'Pariah', one of a group of teens that, after being cured of a genetic disorder become extremely intelligent and disassociated with the general populace. He is one of many and they are becoming a visible threat to humanity.
Bent denies it, but when he is attacked by a group of thugs for being different, has no qualms in destroying his attackers. His parents even view him with distrust.
I like the concept of the book as well as Brett Weldele's art. I get what they are doing. Since there was a thing as a teenager, people have always looked at them with distrust. Young adults with hormones raging affecting the way they think. That's all this really is.
All in all, this is a good, solid book. It takes its time in telling the story it wants so, that might be a little slow for a lot of comic readers, but I think the payoff could be worth the journey.
