Mark Millar is one of those comic book writers of just baffling popularity. Pretty much all he’s got is shock value, but that seems to have been enough to secure him a career. Just look at “Nemesis”, which is essentially “rich homicidal maniac kills lots of people and gets away with it, herpy derpy doo! I’m so shocking and cynical!”
On the bright side, he’s also managed to so far be treated pretty well by the movies. “Wanted”, despite a silly ending, was pretty good, and “Kick-Ass” was one of the best movies of 2010. So maybe Matthew Michael Carnahan, who specializes in political thrillers, can also take “Nemesis” and actually turn it into something worth watching. And, hey, at least it can’t be any more painful than “Civil War”.
