New York. Tough place for a young, black superhero to fight crime, pay rent, and have a love life. Tough enough, that is, even before the city's mightiest champions enter a transdimensional rift, answering a call-to-arms against alien invaders. Now it's up to Red Jacket and a handful of other "rear guardians" to save the world's greatest metropolis. Or die trying.
