Teenage orphan Tyler Baxton through having enough of his neglectful and abusive aunt and uncle discovers that he has high levels of telekinesis. He runs away and by thinking that the world is in a wreck at the moment, Tyler tries create his superhero persona he calls “Catcher One”. Until he is discovered by a mysterious man who calls himself “The Dark Mind”, he tells Tyler that he is the son of two deceased supervillains who were considered the greatest in the world and offers him to enrol in Cobalt Shade Academy, a school for training gifted youngsters in pursuit of the greater good and encourages the truth that the superheroes are way worse, as a way to learn about the full extent of his powers and learn about his parents. Tyler reluctantly agrees and though is initially treated with popularity because of his well known parents, his honest disgrace of the school's method also places him as an outcast of the class. During his time, Tyler's judgement becomes clouded and so he decides to snoop around the school to solve the mystery of how his parents died and why they chose the life of villain. The answers will put him and the future of the world in grave danger.

Comparison Pitch: X-Men meets Harry Potter meets Sky High.

MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi/fantasy violence and action, some disturbing images, thematic elements and language.

(Plot Twist: Cobalt Shade Academy had been lying to Tyler, his parents were actually superheroes who were considered the greatest in the world, the board of the school (being some of world's greatest supervillains) figured that if they were to have children, they would be more powerful than their parents and would bring an end to their league, but if they were able to get the children to join their side, they would be a great asset. Tyler's parents were killed by The Dark Mind who was an old friend of their's and corrupt superhero who was able to trick people to perceive the two as supervillains by (these are his powers) altering reality and people's minds).
