Hyperkind is a comic book series from Marvel Comics' 1993-1995 Razorline imprint, created by Clive Barker, written by Fred Burke penciled by Paris Cullins and inked by Bob Petrecca.

While describing the Razorline imprint Barker touched on the series saying "I wanted to do a super hero comic, something which would be my take on what super heroes were going to be like in the '90s... Hyperkind fell into that category."[1]

Publication history[edit]

There were nine issues of Hyperkind, and 48-page follow-up called Hyperkind: Unleashed, which contained a short prose story of Hokum & Hex, another Razorline comic that had been cancelled.

Characters[edit]

  • Amokk (George Yoneda) - Able to turn into a super-strong, blade-handed bestial creature, in this form he is unable to do anything that requires fingers and tends to be very aggressive.
  • Armata (Lisa Moffitt) - Able to summon armor that produces various weapons and jets for flight. Powered by her life force, excessive use of her powers can render in a state of torpor or even death. Being returned to her chamber can rejuvenate her.
  • Bliss ("Dyan Divine", real name unknown) - Able to make illusions real and read the dreams of others. Bliss was abused by her father and suffers some emotional problems.
  • Ecka - A dog who finds the last of the power chambers, and gains what the others call "cosmic consciousness".
  • Logix (Kenny Zambetti) - Able to enter and control computers and predict probabilities with his machine-like mind. The downside of his power is that he begins to suffer emotional detachment from everything.
