**** (out of five)

Captain Dynamo was a remarkable hero who spent his life protecting the people of Tower City.
Turns out he was also a bit of a man-whore.
After the good captain’s death, his widow Maddie Warner discovers her late husband’s little black book, filled with the names and dates of his conquests throughout the years.
As the bad guys in Tower City begin to take advantage of its hero’s death, Maddie does a little digging and discovers that her husband’s trysts have resulted in at least five illegitimate kids, now all in their late teens and 20s.
She quickly rounds them up, doses them with the same radiation that unlocked her husband’s powers, and voila: Dynamo 5 is born!
Now all these super-siblings have got to do is figure out how to work as a team fast enough to save the city from being overrun by evil.
Writer Jay Faerber (Noble Causes) and artist Mahmud A. Asrar have a great concept here and a fantastic first issue has laid the groundwork for what could be the sleeper super-hero series of 2007.
