The Light is his city's patron superhero. As his sidekick Red, Zach Redinger, is suddenly thrust into a world without his champion after the mighty TL falls to a mysterious super-powered madman known only as Black. Now Red, a speedster named Janet, and Franklin (The Light's wheelchair-bound former side-kick,) must find Black and prevent his horrible plans from coming to fruition. If they can't pinpoint this maniac before his doomsday weapon is activated tomorrow might not come for anyone. The sidekicks' plan is full of problems: Red doesn't have any real powers, Janet can't admit her secret love for Zach, and the deeper Franklin digs, the more he's convinced that Black isn't real - but that their enemy is somehow closer than any could ever expect.
