Kelly Meding’s war-ravaged Los Angeles is ground zero for the ultimate Meta human showdown in this sexy, action-packed new series.
Fifteen years ago, Teresa “Trance” West was a skilled telepath and a proud member of the Ranger Corps. But ever since the Rangers were inexplicably rendered powerless at the climax of the devastating Meta War, she’s bounced from one dead-end job to another. Now her powers have reappeared just as mysteriously as they vanished— only they’re completely transformed and more potent than ever. And they’re threatening to destroy her.
Trance heads to Los Angeles to track down the surviving Rangers and discover who restored her powers—and why—but a phantom enemy is determined to kill them before they can reassemble. As they dodge his deadly attacks and come to terms with their new role as heroes, Trance and the rest of the team set out to annihilate the sinister madman . . . only to discover their own powers are his greatest weapons.
Ex-con Teresa West was a young MetaHuman called Trance until her powers mysteriously vanished at the end of a war between the government s Rangers and the evil Bane. Fifteen years later, she s barely surviving as an underpaid barmaid and housecleaner when her abilities suddenly return in a powerful new form. Returning to the reopened Rangers headquarters near burned-out Los Angeles, she reunites with her former schoolmates in a desperate fight against the psychic body-stealer Spector, who is bent on destroying the untrained young Metas before they can emerge as a team and untangle the mystery of their powers disappearance and return. Though most characters are shallowly drawn and the plot offers few surprises, Meding (Three Days to Dead) successfully captures the action-packed pace of superhero team comics particularly The New Teen Titans, which she cites as an influence with her group of colorful young adventurers.
