Strode is a former weakling who unlocked a terrible strength through 'The Hercules Method' in The Strange Talent of Luther Strode.

"Luther has systematically been taking out bad guys, and those left have a plan to put an end to the seemingly invulnerable vigilante," said the publisher.

"The development means the violence in Legend is amped up even higher than the not-inconsiderable level of gore in Strange Talent."

"You know, metering out the violence in the first one was pretty tricky," Jordan told IGN.

"While the hyperviolence and how we're desensitised to violence in comics was one of the points of the first one, we had to be careful not to, you know, desensitise people to the ridiculous violence.

"And that applies to this one as well. It needs to be bigger (or at least different) than the first one, so some care has to be taken. But this one is much more action-oriented than the first one, since everyone in the tri-state area is apparently trying to kill Luther."

The Legend of Luther Strode #1 will debut on December 5.
