(The third instalment in my Ascendant series)
Greatly inspired by the sacrifices made by both Louise Langdon a.k.a “Platinum Angel” and Vincent Valentine a.k.a “Perseus” that ultimately aided him in the defeat of artificially created super-being Alo, Caleb Conrad has since severed all remaining personal ties to him and has spent the next three years travelling the globe alone in search of other superpowered beings to form a new superhero society he calls “The Legacy” in honour of the fallen heroes he had known and gave their lives for him to restore humanity's faith in superheroes once more. but Caleb's quest is interrupted when he finds himself confronted by a new enemy he never knew he would have to face, the estranged biological son of his deceased mentor/adoptive father, Rian Ritcher, who had been on his trail ever since Caleb publically emerged with his battle against the Unstoppable, and allied himself with the world's most dangerous incarcerated supervillains to stomp out superheroism for good, forcing Caleb to recruit even more help than he could manage, uniting with new allies and reuniting with those he had to leave behind to take on the massive overwhelming threat quickly approaching him and finally prove to the world why they need superheroes… no matter what inescapable personal sacrifice he never thought he would have to make.
MPA Rating: Rated PG-13 for extended sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and language.
