Graphic Novel to Raise Awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease

A true team of superheroes

A true team of superheroes

After much anticipation, the first book was published last July in 2016. The novel follows a team of superheroes that were collectively known as the “Unbeatables”. One of the superheroes, Samarium, is able to instantly suit up in magnetic full-body armor. Samarium also has inflammatory bowel disease. The plot twists and turns as the Unbeatables work together to defeat a villainous trillionaire who was trying to take over the world.

The evil villain is defeated because he can’t overcome the heroes’ inner strengths.
The Unbeatables possessed a special power that other people did not have. This special power stemmed from their endurance and willpower strengthened by their experience living with inflammatory bowel diseases. In order to defeat the villain, Technonaut, the heroes came together as a community to reign in their combined “power” fueled by their IBD experiences. It was ultimately this community harvested collective willpower that defeated Technonaut – he was unable to overcome their immense strength.
