The Adventures of Unemployed Man

Quick, free marketeers! Deploy the social safety net!


 

In better times, Unemployed Man was a hero called The Ultimatum. After the financial meltdown, he was left with no money, and the U on his suit took on a very different meaning. Now he secretly lives under his former mansion in a cave. He soon teams with Plan B, Wonder Mother, the Master of Degrees, and other down-but-not-out superheroes to fight the sinister villains of The Just Us League, including The Human Resource, The Toxic Debt Blob, and The Invisible Hand.

Excerpted from the graphic novel, The Adventures of Unemployed Man.

Credits: Erich Origen and Gan Golan. Also: Rick Veitch (penciling), Terry Beatty (inking), Lee Loughridge, (coloring), and Clem Robins (lettering).

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
