EX MACHINA tells the story of civil engineer Mitchell Hundred, who becomes America's first living, breathing super-hero after a strange accident gives him amazing powers. Eventually Mitchell tires of risking his life merely to maintain the status quo and runs for mayor of New York City, winning by a landslide. This new collection features three unique storylines of the Eisner Award-winning series which Playboy calls "a two-fisted blend of super-hero action and political debate!"

From Booklist:
After a mysterious accident gave Mitchell Hundred the power to control machines, he parlayed a brief stint as a superhero with the grandiose moniker the Great Machine into a successful run for the mayoralty of New York. In the third collection of the series chronicling his incumbency, Hundred is called for jury duty, and his strange abilities precipitate a hostage crisis in the deliberation room. Meanwhile, the police commissioner and the mayor's trusted aide, Bradbury, conduct separate searches for the vigilante superhero who's impersonating Hundred's now-retired Great Machine persona. Vaughan dishes out tantalizing glimpses of Hundred's superhero career and earlier adolescent obsession with superheroes and machines. Since Hundred's days in costume are in the past, and he calls on his paranormal abilities merely as the situation demands, Ex Machina barely qualifies as a superhero comic and likely appeals more to alt-comics fans than to the hardcore masks-and-capes crowd. Tony Harris' stylishly realistic artwork combines with Vaughan's canny characterizations, deft dialogue, and compelling plotlines to make for one of the best mainstream comics going. Gordon Flagg

Review:
"If millionaire playboys and nerdy highschoolers can be superheroes, why not the mayor of New York? ... Terrifically intriguing."
