Rising Stars was a comic by J. Michael Straczynski. It was about a group of people born in a small town who developed special powers. They were the only super humans or specials in this world.
Some of these specials are being murdered and when each one dies, the rest get more powerful. There were about one hundred and thirteen of these specials. One special named Poet is investigating.
It has been too long since I read it. I remember it being good. I don’t remember if I read the whole series.
How this comic translates into a movie will be interesting to see. That is if the movie gets made, a lot of books or comics get optioned for movies. Not all books or comics optioned for movies get made into movies.
