The headquarters for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is seen in Washington, Tuesday, April 1, 2014. The U.S. government masterminded the creation of a "Cuban Twitter," a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. The investigation found the program evaded Cuba’s Internet restrictions by creating a text-messaging service that could be used to organize political demonstrations. It drew in tens of thousands of subscribers who were unaware it was backed by the U.S. government. (AP Photo/J. David Ake)

This cover image released by Image Comics shows "MPH" by Mark Millar and Fegredo. Millar is wasting no time in creating his own world and universe, moving like lightning to populate it with heroes and villains of his own creation from U.S. government-created speed demons fueled by illicit drugs to old-fashioned space opera that recalls 1950s-era science fiction tales with moon men, monsters and space cadets on dangerous missions.
