Freshmen is a comic book series published by Top Cow, co-created by Seth Green and Hugh Sterbakov. The publication is marketed as \"The adventures of college freshmen with extraordinary powers.\"
Fourteen college freshmen are cast out of the main dormitory and forced to live in temporary housing in the Boughl Science Building where they are given superhuman powers by the \"ax-cell-erator\" after an explosion. Dr. Theodore Tomlinson asks for the help of the super-powered freshmen to repair the device. Kenneth \"Norrin\" Weismeyer (aka Wannabe) who is obsessed with comic book superheroes but who went for pizza at the time of the accident and has no superpowers talks the freshmen into becoming superheroes and fighting criminals.
At first the Freshmen are mostly concerned with learning how to use their powers, but later some of the team begin wearing costumes. Although the team\'s first field assignment is successful their second field assignment is not and one of their members is critically injured.
After the fallout of their first major battle, the Freshmen deal with the loss of their teammate who is in a coma. The team dicovers botha a betrayal and a conspiracy within their midst, culminating in a final battle to stop the spread of a disease to millions, After a break in the story that coincides with the college students Christmas break, The Freshmen return and continue exploring their powers and what it means to be a hero.
N.B.: I used some variant covers for images in volume 2, because they looked so damn cool.
