What is the plot of Project Power?

The synopsis for Project Power has been provided by Netflix:

On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The catch: You don’t know what will happen until you take it. While some develop bulletproof skin, invisibility, and super strength, others exhibit a deadlier reaction. But when the pill escalates crime within the city too dangerous levels, a local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier fueled by a secret vendetta (Jamie Foxx) to fight power with power and risk-taking the pill in order to track down and stop the group responsible for creating it.

Is Project Power based on a comic series?

Judging the many comic book adaptation of the recent decade, you can be forgiven if you assumed that Project Power is based on a comic book.

The superhero feature was written by Mattson Tomlin and was not adapted from a comic.

Netflix has certainly dabbled in comics, and we’d love to see Project Power receive the comic book treatment in the near future.
