Lavie Tidhar. Funny Pages. (Interzone #225, Nov/Dec 2009).

Tongue-in-cheek superhero fun in Tel Aviv. A motley crew of ex-military types, with a range of almost arbitrary powers bestowed upon them following combat and nuclear fallout, are divided into two camps. One is in the employ of a cardboard cutout evil baddie (bwahahaha) and the others are on the side of law and order.

Although it’s not as simple as this, as the evil dude in fact plans to use the threat of sea inundation to deliver peace to the region (pure unadulterated fantasy there!), and a couple of erstwhile opponents find opportunities for partnership going foward.
