Description

In 2020, eleven years after the passengers of flight BA142 from London to Delhi developed extraordinary abilities corresponding to their innermost desires, the world is overrun with supers. Some use their powers for good, others for evil, and some just want to pulverize iconic monuments and star in their own reality show. But now, from New York to Tokyo, someone is hunting down supers, killing heroes and villains both, and it’s up to the Unit to stop them…


From Publishers Weekly

May 26, 2014 – Twelve exploit-packed years have passed since the events of Basu's debut, Turbulence, which introduced the Unit of oddly endowed superheroes. A brisk, clever summary of those years launches this rowdy, ingenious sequel, which improves upon the original while retaining its appealing quirks. A second wave of transformations has resulted in a glut of unrestrained superheroes and super villains boisterously vying for attention and reality show contracts. Amid this chaos, Norio Hisatomi, the head of Team ARMOR, is pursuing a sympathetically portrayed personal vendetta against the Unit and forging ill-conceived alliances; Utopic Industries is kidnapping and experimenting on supers; and the incomprehensible horse-headed child-god Kalki makes a welcome return in a critical role. Adept plotting keeps all these globe-spanning threads spooling smoothly, and meticulous blocking gives the dazzling action sequences a cinematic bravura. A confident, witty approach to Basu's awkwardly heroic characters is the most striking enhancement to the series, elevating this installment well above its predecessor.
