This webcomic deals with bullying, the reasons for it, and atoning for it. Jonas just wants to get through his senior year when Mitch, his former bully, moves back to town. While assigned to a science project together Mitch attempts, and sometimes fails to atone for his behavior over the years, and Jonas learns that there is more to Mitch than just a bully. Did I also mention they develop super powers and end up chased by mysterious men in black? The characterizations, art and dialog come together to pack an serious emotional punch throughout the comic. This is an ongoing webcomic.
Note: This is NOT a simple victim falling for bully trope. There are trust issues that must be dealt with, understandings that have to happen and real work that has to be done first to get to that point.
