Warrick and Cyn perform a random act of heroism, which gains their hastily assumed secret identities immediate attention. Unfortunately, some of the attention comes from crime lord, Vincent Liedecker who wants nothing more than to quash their heroic careers before it can grow.
They are heroes. They are people. This is their story.
Styled after works from the Bronze Age of Comic Books, The Descendants is presented in a unique manner: as an all-prose comic book complete with issues, specials and annuals, each telling a complete story that ties into the overall tale of the titular superheroes.
It is also written as a throwback and love letter to an earlier age of superheroes, to a time before everything was grim and gritty and when comic books were fun.
