The story of One-Punch Man was created by ONE as a webcomic in 2009. It follows Saitama, a man who trained so hard that he becomes the strongest human in a world full of heroes, villains and monsters. However, Saitama is bored with his life, since no being has been able to come close to his power. One-Punch Man is Saitama's story as he learns what it means to become hero and how it's more than just being the strongest. ONE's webcomic eventually became a proper manga in 2012 and is ongoing. There are 16 total volumes available and it is a monthly series in Weekly Shonen Jump.
