The comic is titled ‘unOrdinary’
Well-known rapper Lil Uzi Vert has found a whole new venture – a comic collaboration. Vert, whose real name is Symere Bysil Woods has teamed with korean comic brand Webtoon for its superhero comic series named unOrdinary. Lil Uzi has done unique and exciting collaborations in the past, but this surely takes the cake.

unOrdinary is written and drawn by Uru-Chan, the creator of OFR Ice. The story follows a crippled high-school student named John, who lives in an extraordinary world that has people with super powers. Yes, it is similar to My Hero Academia, and we can say John is similar to Deku. As a boy without powers, he has to make sure he doesn’t get bullied by the Royals, an elite group of students that run the school. However, his best friend Seraphina is the top-most of the Royals and wants the hierarchy to end. But their friendship finds criticism in the eyes of other students.
Webtoon Partnership with Lil Uzi Vert
The rapper released his recent hit single ‘Demon High,’ and joined Webtoon for a new promo image. Uru-Chan drew the art, showing Lil Uzi with John and Seraphina posing backstage for a selfie.
Webtoon has music in the background for many of its special episodes, and they make sure to add it to the hype. The company has partnered with K-pop bands like BTS, ENHYPEN, and TXT via the label HYBE. The comics were all fantasy series, and transformed the idols into superpowered warriors. However, in Lil Uzi’s case, he exists as himself in the unOrdinary universe. As a result, it is clear he must have his own superpower. Let’s hope he appears in more episodes.
