Ex Machina: The First Hundred Days: Pt. 1 (the breakdown)

In this episode we enter a comic book version of America and follow the life of newly elected New York mayor Mitchell Hundred as he tries to keep control of the bustling metropolis. The comic jumps through temporal points as the Mayor works his way through getting super powers, takes up the mantel of probably misguided vigilante, meets the various characters the populate his present day, and makes the decision to leave the superhero costume behind for the slick suit of a big city politician. 

Ex Machina is a prime example of how stereotypes of comic books being simple minded picture books for kids is complete and utter bullshit.
