Ex Machina: Term Limits (2011)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Ex Machina: Term Limits (2011) Volume 10 collects the final issues of Brian K. Vaughn's political superhero, Mitchell Hundred. He's a former superhero who is now Mayor of New York. Now he's retiring and trying to get his Chief-of-Staff, an African American guy, to take his place, though his plans go awry. The first part of the book tackles a sticky subject, Pro-Life, and we're left to guessing as to Hundred's stance on this. In fact, the very first sequence is a flashback in which he's rescuing passengers from a Roosevelt Island cable car and a woman is giving birth. There's also a super-powered woman, who was a reporter and former lover, who is killing people close to him, including his own mother. She's after an invention he created, a gun that opens a gateway to another dimension. In order to deal with her he's forced to done his costume. The book ends in the year 2006, with Hundred as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and with him having much larger political ambitions--running for President. What surprised me about this book is what happens to many of the main characters, such as his buddy/bodyguard Bradbury and his former Mentor/childhood friend Kremlin. It doesn't end well and ultimately makes the main character of this book not a hero but an asshole.
