Well, the first episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is out, and I cannot help but be struck by how much the plot reminds me of two stories published in 2001 and 2002 respectively. A man, out of work, trying to keep his family together, whose power is burning himself up. Hmmmm.
In fact, if you enjoyed those stories, why not read the award-winning first Golden City story? You can find a link below:
