The title will focus on a member of a superhero team of the near future, The Victories, as he struggles with newly recalled memories of a troubled past.

"The Victories sucked me in by taking the postmodern 'mature readers' superhero story to a brand-new place, which only a serious superhero fan like Mike could deliver, but which will appeal to people like me who thought the genre didn't have much left to offer," said editor Scott Allie.

"Every few years a book comes along to push superheroes into a new place - Watchmen did it, and Powers did it. The Victories does it in a way that'll make people uncomfortable. Not for the faint of heart."

Oeming has recently been providing the artwork for Takio, a project also written by his Powers collaborator Brian Michael Bendis.

The Victories #1 will debut on August 14.
