You’re an ordinary schlub.
Then you get powers.
You think you’re goddamn Superman for a while.
Then the world loves you.
Then other Supermen – not you, but guys like you – start wrecking the world.
Some say they’ve gone insane. Some say they just aren’t human any longer.
Some Manifests have killed people.
Lots of people.
All Manifests have become suspects – and faster than even the precogs could predict, they became harnessed as weapons against other Manifests.
Fight fire with more fire.
Why send good men and women to their death against these monsters?
Why not just send more monsters?
