I recommend "Wonder City Stories"

Recently heavenscalyx posted about "Wonder City Stories" in crowdfunding. So I glanced at it ... and wound up reading the whole thing, through its current installment.  This is a wry, whimsical storyline featuring several main characters with various personal problems which are more complicated by than solved by their assorted superpowers.  It's kind of like a behind-the-scenes look at comic book characters.  It's also full of strong women, people of color, queers, and other folks who usually don't get to do heroic things in fiction.  Go read it ... not with your mouth full, it's funny.
