About Becoming a Hero

With great power comes a warped mind…

In Domed-Atlanta, anyone can declare themselves a hero or a villain. All you have to do is use modifications that substantially boost your genetic and tech-enhanced super abilities. But there’s a price to be paid for boosting your abilities: the real and potent danger of uncontrollable addiction to the modifications as well as being vilified by the declared neutral population who have an overwhelming fear and hatred of all things “hero or villain” after constant violence have destroyed almost everything.  

She’s the only superhuman not addicted but must keep it a secret…

XJ Patterson is the only superhuman not addicted to her modifications. Her grandfather genetically-edited her DNA and created a special set just for her. XJ knows she could save the people in the city by sharing the technology but can’t because the same supervillain who murdered her grandfather would most certainly kill her. Try as she might to figure out which supervillain murdered her grandfather and bring them to justice, she keeps hitting a brick wall that causes her to be frustrated. 

Then in an unusual turn of events, superhuman students from the CAGE Academy begin to die because of suspicious MOD malfunctions. Someone is using her grandfather’s scientific signature to kill these students. XJ is angry. She knows someone is destroying her grandfather’s legacy. XJ investigates but her anger gets in the way. She makes a critical mistake that points the finger squarely at her mother. Now, her hero mom is the prime suspect and wrongfully accused of killing the students. XJ is devastated. She must learn to refocus her outrage and expose the real villain or face losing her mom to heroes reprogramming forever.
