Journalist Michael Ames is at his wit's end, he's going through a harsh divorce and he has a tendency to throw himself into opportunities without thinking twice, and as a result is accused of selling false information. In an effort to turn his life around, he is given the task of interviewing grouchy retired superhero Clifford Hart, publicly known as Power-Man, who not only tells Michael his life story but also reveals the dark hidden secrets about the ideals of superheroes and supervillains.
