The year is 2043. The city of Blackburn, Florida may look glitzy to tourists, but it is drowning under a tide of crime. The local superhero team, the Mavericks, disbanded twenty years ago after the sudden deaths of most of its members. The only former Maverick left in the public eye is Rebecca Napier, aka Phantasm, who now runs the massive Cerberus Security Corporation right in the heart of Blackburn.
But even Rebecca’s private army has done little to curb the horrid crime rate. With turmoil churning in the criminal underworld and a massive gang war ready to break out, Rebecca is willing to go to any length to finally bring peace to Blackburn.
With chaos ready to take Blackburn, the other remaining Maverick stumbles upon the only people she can trust to stop it: Rebecca’s disgruntled daughter Jessica and two ex-Cerberus operatives who will have to prove their worth as Blackburn’s new champions.
While ultimately optimistic in tone, this is not a traditional superhero story and is not intended for young readers. There is intense, often visceral violence, strong language, plenty of drug use and non-explicit sexual content. It’s easily R-rated.
The story is written as a web serial, divided into story arcs and will be updated as chapters. Updates are every Saturday during arcs, but please understand that the writers have personal lives and sometimes the weekly deadline will be missed. We will do our best to keep everyone posted; this is a marathon, not a sprint. Also expect occasional short stories and bonus content. Fan comments will be replied to as soon as possible – we greatly appreciate all feedback!
All that being said, don’t forget to sign up for email updates or the RSS feed in the sidebar, and I hope we’ve made a great story for you to enjoy.
