Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Comicbook adaptation that starts off with someone drowning.

The lead character is one of those awkward shy types with a lot of creativity pent up inside of them, despite their outward passivity. This is contrasted by their extrovert colleague / best friend, who is constantly throwing themselves at the opposite sex.

This set-up changes however when the lone protagonist stumbles upon a set of super-powers from an ancient god, which bestows upon them a full-body CGI transplant and releases their inner potential.

The character's initial problem of not being able to remember their actions while in this nighttime alter ego is quickly overtaken by a whole heap of other hassles. A flash of frank impertinence at their boss, giving in to using their new powers to steal, an unscheduled appearance on stage at a public dance performance, and a big crime going down.

Not to mention the cop who figures out their secret identity, and has them arrested.

Sitting despondent in a prison cell, they are visited through the bars by their pet, and upon escaping bring the real villain to justice, while handily getting off scott-free for their own earlier theft.

What's that? Catwoman? No no no, I'm still reviewing that Jim Carrey film I watched a fortnight back - The Mask.

(Catwoman is available here.)

I was impressed with the overall look, particularly all the swooping crane work, but I guess I like a good story.
