Synopsis/Pitch

Imagine you had a dead end job that you were held highly accountable for. Were an overachieving college student or had trouble even keeping a job at all, all while trying to start out as promising superheroes. A group of young heroes must deal with the mundane in order to experience the extraordinary, all on their 2nd Shift.

Our story takes place in San Diego, CA where our eclectic group of 4 inexperienced heroes battle against a man on a nonstop murdering spree. With the ability to feed off anger, who will be able to stop him? If they can, will they all survive?

The Characters:

1. John Hopper (“Lightshower”): 23, though quite capable as the team’s leader, often prone to questioning his in the field decision-making, he has to shoulder the responsibility for putting them into dangerous situations. He battles his shaky self confidence in the field and has to keep things at the local amusement park, FishWorld, running smoothly.
Powers: Ability to transfer, manipulate and control energy 
2. Anne Shepard (“Focus”): 19, A hyper intelligent and motivated collegian (gifted with the ability of flight) is often too smart for her own good and on one occasion, LITERALLY finds herself floating off in between classes while analyzing the latest mystery from the newspaper. Enjoys the crime solving rather than crime fighting aspects of her team’s activities.  
Powers: Hyper-intellect and flight.
3. Sarah Bautista (“Spree”): 25, seemingly always hustling to find work, she's currently waitressing. She is the older sister of Eddie. Lifelong martial artist. The highly disciplined and fierce martial artist excels in the field yet struggles with keeping her brother from goofing off and staying gainfully employed.
Power: Superhuman speed only in her upper extremities. 
4. Eddie Bautista (“Switch”): 18, Works at a comic store while drawing his soon to be published comic. He's an over the top Pro Wrestling fan , movie buff and food lover! An immature Filipino hero deals with his overbearing big sister, who criticizes his every move in the field as well as at home. He escapes into a world of comic books, pro wrestling and his highly over active imagination. Younger brother to Sarah. Power: Shapeshifter 

John Hopper works long, thankless hours at "FishWorld" (a SeaWorld-like theme park based out of San Diego). Even with his assistant manager position, he's forced to share a 3-bedroom apartment with his friends/teammates Sarah, Eddie and Anne. The dregs of 9-5 gigs and the mundane existence of day to day life is only half the battle, as the real battle take place in the streets of San Diego. Slinging comics or boomerangs? Dicing onions or criminals? Bussing tables, or busting heads? Solving math or murders? All of the above. It’s going to be a long day.

Risks and challenges

As far as issue 5 and the Trade Paperback, there is no risk! The books are drawn and being colored & lettered as this KS goes on. By the end of this KS all work that needs to be done will be done.
The rewards that include drawings from the artist will take some time to go through, so be patient as Scott makes his way through each one for you! The rewards that include you being drawn in future issues will be within 1-5 issues of issue 5. Don't fret, they will be done!
