THE STORY

SYNOPSIS

The shop began life, we learn, as a humble neighborhood hardware store where the nerd-tastic Trey Swieskowski toils, having inherited the store from his parents. A science whiz, Trey is obsessed with the idea of reconstituting Brooklynite, the substance that turned six average borough-dwellers into superheroes when an asteroid crashed in their midst. Trey's wish is to join this Legion of Victory, the celebrated team that has turned Brooklyn into a crime-free utopia, albeit one with murderous rents.

As it happens, the leader of the pack, the comely Astrolass, has tired of the life and its ceaseless demands. Her decision to quit the tights-and-cape existence and take up a normal job naturally causes a fight for leadership among the remaining superheroes: El Fuego, a short-order cook from Bay Ridge who now has the ability to shoot fire; Blue Nixie, a former marine biologist from Brighton Beach, who can control the tides; Kid Comet, a messenger from Dumbo transformed into the fastest man living; Captain Clear, a file clerk who's now completely invisible (we just hear his voice); and Avenging Angelo, an unemployed gamer from Bensonhurst whose rather modest (if hilarious) gift is being able to locate empty parking spots.

Avenging Angelo has always yearned for more respect. When he's passed over for the job of leader, resentment festers and a supervillain - or a would-be supervillain - is born.

Will Trey succeed in achieving his dream? Will Astrolass find happiness as a humble office worker for the Save the World Foundation? Will sparks fly when these two eventually meet? Will Avenging Angelo foil Trey's plans and steal the Brooklynite, decimate the borough with the powers he gains and make Murray Hill the center of his domain and New York's new utopia? Good luck.
