Here they are, for the first time ever, the Holy Avenger comics featured in SUPER, the ones that inspire Frank Darbo to become the Crimson Bolt. These are copies of the actual comic books Frank (Rainn Wilson) buys from Libby (Ellen Page) during his first visit to the comic book store. The Holy Avenger is, of course, based on the TV character played by Nathan Fillion in the film. The characters of Holly and Jim are based on Mikaela Hoover and Nick Holmes. There is no Demonswill (my character) in the comic book because we shot the comics before we shot the TV show, and the costume wasn’t designed yet!
These were written by me and drawn by Joe Bluhm and before now have only been seen fleetingly in the actual movie. Enjoy – and go see SUPER in a theater or right now in your home On Demand if you haven’t yet!
The Holy Avenger explains to Jim and Holly how Lust Dust has infected them.
