The Adventures of Unemployed Man

Quick, free marketeers! Deploy the social safety net!


 

In better times, Unemployed Man was a hero called The Ultimatum. After the financial meltdown, he was left with no money, and the U on his suit took on a very different meaning. Now he secretly lives under his former mansion in a cave. He soon teams with Plan B, Wonder Mother, the Master of Degrees, and other down-but-not-out superheroes to fight the sinister villains of The Just Us League, including The Human Resource, The Toxic Debt Blob, and The Invisible Hand.

Excerpted from the graphic novel, The Adventures of Unemployed Man.

Credits: Erich Origen and Gan Golan. Also: Rick Veitch (penciling), Terry Beatty (inking), Lee Loughridge, (coloring), and Clem Robins (lettering).

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
