The heroes of Megaton City try to be good while the villains tend to be evil.

But these heroes are just dysfunctional.

Former hero Tom North moved to a rural town in the middle of Kansas. His dream was to waste away the rest of his days in a quaint house, reading newspapers and drawing in his spare time while the world wore on around him. Things changed.

Trevor Rembrandt, once the fearsome vigilante known as Fivestar, recently revealed to the public his true identity and put his wealthy family’s entire fortune at risk. With the help of his stern assistant Riley Trudeau, Trevor was forced to seek refuge in Kansas.

The infamous Doctor Demon was once one of the world’s greatest masterminds. For reasons unknown, he re-branded himself as a reality television star and found himself in the good graces of the public. And then he was recruited to help a disgraced hero clean up his act.

This is The Team Up.

Luckily, Andrew isn’t alone. Fate has drawn him into the lives of other outcast children and together they face a relentless evil that threatens to spill into this world.

It seemed like just another night at the bowling alley.

Tuck didn’t understand why the stranger on Lane 8 was in such a bad mood. Why would anyone seek solitude in a place so loud and chaotic? It should have been an easy night of throwing back beers and cheering the local bowling hero as he came closer to breaking a record.

But something went wrong.

On a fateful night, one man peered into the gaping mouth of hell.

And there it was: a seven-ten split.
