It's not easy to be a villain in Super City. "Hands" Anderson really tries to stay straight, but the jobs pay well. This last one seemed simple enough - low risk/high reward. It went as smoothly as he could've dreamed. But it wasn't that simple of a job, and attracts all the wrong kind of attention for a villain trying to keep a low…
But the battle with the Seven had caused changes in the team as well, and the team gained one new secret which could have torn it apart. New team members joined, unaware of what had happened in the past, of the shadow that still lingered over the heroes, and over Awesome himself.
Now a new villain as arrived in Super City. A Super Villain who has taken down all those who had opposed him so far, and who's agenda seems to be nothing more than the destruction of the Super Squad.
Old wounds are reopened, old secrets dug up and exposed, and Captain Awesome is forced to face a choice he made long ago in new light.
