Brilliant portrayal of a superhero in the "real" world 7. August 2002
Von Bob Quasit - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In "MiracleMan" (UK vt. "MarvelMan") Alan Moore places a classic superhero type in the "real" world - a world very much like this one, in which people who see a man in tights are not going to think "super".
During a terrorist hijacking at a nuclear plant news photographer Michael Moran suffers a debilitating headache and mutters a word he sees from the wrong side of a glass door. And is transformed.
But people don't know what to make of a man who is invulnerable and can fly, and that includes Moran's wife. She asks why she'd never heard of MiracleMan and his now-remembered superfriends, and he has no answer. And the truth of the matter is world-shaking, literally.
This is just an outstanding book. The series hit a very dark spot in a later volume, one which I found personally distasteful, and it seemed to lose its focus by the time Neil Gaiman took it over; unfortunately it was never finished. Nonetheless, an excellent and enduring deconstruction of the idea of the superhero.
I'd recommend Moore's "V for Vendetta" to those who like this book.
One point: the graphic novel edition (the one that I have anyway), is missing several pages which were included at the beginning of the original comic. The comic began with a deliberately cheesy Captain Marvel-style story about time travel, but suddenly froze at the end of the story and zoomed in on MiracleMan's face, panel by panel. "Behold I teach you the superman: he is this lightning, he is this madness!" -Nietzsche, "Thus Spoke Zarathustra". The next page was the beginning of the graphic novel, with a far more realistic art and writing style. A very effective demonstration of what Moore planned to do to the cliches of the superhero genre. I don't know why it was eliminated.

SHAZA--I mean, KIMOTA!!! 8. November 2001
Von JR Pinto - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
There is a weird feeling you get, reading Alan Moore's Miracleman stories-the feeling that you're not reading a comic book. The story takes place in the real world-not the comic book universe. As the story opens, we find middle-aged Mike Moran being haunted by dreams of flying. During a terrorist raid, he is taken hostage and suddenly remembers his magic word and becomes a super-hero again. Having forgotten his past for twenty years, it all comes flooding back to him: which presents him with his biggest problem-how to explain things to the misses! As he does, she (famously) begins to laugh at him! The inconsistencies of his super-hero past begin to become apparent to him. Of course something is wrong here. Just what that something is, and how Alan Moore explains it are left for you to be seen.
Of course Miracleman (Marvelman in England) is the British version of Captain Marvel. In reincarnating him, Alan Moore (as is his want) completely reinvents him for a new age. Miracleman is `aufgehobened' for a new era. For me, the best superhero comics like this, The Watchmen, and Marvels, try to portray their larger-than-life heroes as realistically as possible and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, put them in the real world, populated by real people, with real consequences for their actions. In Mike Moran's universe, Superman is a comic book character. When Miracleman bursts onto the scene (literally) we imagine what it would be like if a super-hero really appeared in our world. But then, the adventure begins...

This isn't your father's Superman... 3. Mai 2000
Von Brandon B. Alspaugh - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
There's a hint of disdain in Moore's Marvelman (renamed Miracleman for distribution in the US, for obvious reasons) for virtually every aspect of the comic "super hero". His response? Laugh a bit, have his fun, and then go on to analyze what a super hero would REALLY mean to our world.
His hero isn't some rock-jawed alien or identity disassociative with a predilection for flying rodents. He's a normal person, and Moore doesn't forget this for a second; when Moran, or Miracleman, is being laughed at by his wife (obviously the voice of Moore in this instance) as he describes his absurd past as a superhero, he shatters a table in frustration.
This book, along with it successive volumes The Red King Syndrome and Olympus, are Moore's legacy to the world of the super hero. Neil Gaiman ties up the package nicely with The Golden Age. In the end, you're left with a lot more questions than answers...but then, that's the point, now isn't it?

Wait For The Marvel Omnibus 19. August 2009
Von W. Rosen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Marvel Comics now owns the rights to this character as of 2009 so expect to see an omnibus edition containing the entire series. If you can wait a year or so you'll save a small fortune over the individual issues and graphic novel collections. Who knows we may even see new material from Gaiman and/or Moore.

Visions and revisions 8. Januar 2011
Von Neal Stanifer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
By now, it has become a cliche to depict the fascist superman, the debauched superman, the corrupt superman. Any number of renegade comics writers have made careers out of this sort of thing, to the point that it's become a bit of a yawn. But this is where it started, for good or ill -- and in my opinion, for both. Miracleman is a twisted take on such heroes as Captain Marvel and Superman, and as such, it will disappoint many modern readers as being too deconstructive. I concur, to an extent. As someone who cut his literary teeth on Captain America and Captain Marvel, I have little sympathy for latter-day counter-culturists who subvert icons to make a vague and murky point about human evil.

But there is power here, and poetry. The hubris of the superhuman is here taken to its logical conclusion, and the result is devastating -- and a little bit glorious, to be honest. It's a trip every comics fan has taken in his or her mind, and it's one that has waited for a long time to see the light of day. ("What If" scenarios cynically designed to reinforce the status quo don't count, sorry.)

If you're looking for lighter fare, you might try All-Star Superman or some of DC's Spotlight collections. And if you're looking for a cold-blooded killer who blames his sociopathy on a crappy upbringing or whatever, then you might be happier with Wolverine or Deadpool or Punisher or...any number of other murderers. But if you've ever wondered about the hair's-breadth line that separates a world-saving hero from a world-devouring villain, then this book is a must-have. Buy two copies -- you'll be loaning one out...a lot.
