The only family member to survive the 9/11 attacks. A sidekick-turned-construction-worker. Teenaged products of an institute for unwanted metahumans. A man who can make anyone do anything. Are they heroes? Are they villains? Sometimes they're both. Often at the same time. Corrupts Absolutely? collects twenty-three tales from veteran authors and newcomers, each with a unique perspective on what it might really be like to be superhuman in today's day and age. In the center of such a roiling mass of uncertainty and excitement lies one important truth: the fight against good or evil is never as important as the fight for or against oneself.
