Based on DC Comics' Ex Machina, Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris' Ex Machina will come to the movies as The Great Machine.
Mitchell Hundred is the mayor of New York City in the early 21st Century. It's a New York City where one of the Twin Towers still stands, in a world where there has ever only been one superhero. And that hero? The Great Machine, who was none other than Mayor Mitchell Hundred before hanging up his jetpack and getting into politics. This is the basic premise of Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris' Ex Machina, published by DC Comics between 2004 and 2010. The book spent considerably less time on superheroics than it did on Hundred's time as mayor in an alternate recent history, and it's not talked about nearly enough in the pantheon of great comics work of the 21st century so far. That should change,
