New Avengers. Ultimates. Contest of Champions. Loki: Agent of Asgard. Ulysses. And soon: US Avengers. For the past couple of years, UK-based writer Al Ewing has been tugging, gently but insistently, on the threads of Marvel continuity. Remaking the universe.

What do you get when you combine two sisters with a cat keyboard, nerdy lyrics, serious musical chops, and 30 cities?

Tesla Deathray Survivors Anonymous (or, "TDSA" -- pronounced "Bamf!") is a support group for those who have suffered harm at the business end of a handheld electrical resonant transformer.
