Phoenix Anderson has one goal: to avoid the League of Superheroes. He's not entirely sure why he's avoiding the good guys; but, then again, there are a lot of things he doesn't know.
Of course, a federal organization has more resources than a college student with superpowers, so they end up catching him and putting him in their database. With that out of the way, and after establishing friendly relations with the League, he decides that he's only going to help when needed, but once he gets some unexpected news, he realizes that he's more involved than he thought he would be.
Events start unfolding one after another, involving a house up in flames, a heist, a dangerous city, and a plot that spells trouble for everyone.
Welcome to a world of superheroes and villains, of undefined heroism, of family who don't know they're family, and of many, many secrets.
