In 1947, a near-Earth supernova's wavefront washes the solar system with cosmic radiation. Thirty seven years later, high school freshman Michael Gurick's father is killed combating cyborg supervillains. With a little help from his friends, Michael takes up his father's super-identity to seek justice against the cyborgs who killed his father-or will it be revenge? (Illustrations by Matt Howarth)
