After the superhero Scarlet Knight is killed, his former sidekick and foster son Bobby Baines is drafted to take on the fallen hero's mantle and secret identity. He struggles to balance his new responsibilities with his senior year in high school. Will Bobby be able to avoid expulsion when a random locker check turns up his sword? Will he be able to find a way to defeat the giant squid bearing down on his school and still finish his Spanish homework before second period?
When high school senior, football star, and all around jerk Ryan Harper is accidentally killed, the man he thought was a talent scout hands him a card: "Go to Hell, go directly to Hell, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.00." Once there, he is offered a fascinating opportunity: instead of burning down below, he can opt to join a new employment program they're launching to compete with the whole "guardian angel" thing. He tentatively agrees, and wakes up in a new body, transferred to a new school, and with his first assignment: just stay close to his new classmate Amanda.
